Wisconsin, Renee and NKOTB...

..it was sooooo much fun...I don't have all the pictures but I promise to post them as soon as possible...We(Misty, Amber and I) left Wednesday morning at 6:00am to head north for Wisconsin... after we arrived in Champaign, Ill. we ate lunch and Amber decided that we needed to decorate the windows with paint...so we proceed to turn the car into a NKOTB car...it was my turn to take over the driving! I had been driving about an hour, when we got over a hill and who else would be siting at the bottom except a Illinois State trooper! I was exceeding the limit of speed by a few miles an hour, so we immediately saw the blue lights... I pulled over and waited for the results of the radar calculations...


After minutes of Officer Cepak (it was a female state trooper) running the tags she comes to the passengers side window and informed me that in fact I was speeding...She asks why we are in such a hurry and we inform her that we are needing to get to Milwaukee, WI. by 6:00 so that we will be able to get to the NKOTB concert on time...She smirks and heads back to her car...She comes back to the car and tell me that she is going to reduce my speed and only give me a warning ticket...I sign my warning and she says..."Okay, so I need to tell you about my NKOTB experience...So I went to a NKOTB concert when I was a teenager at the Illinois state fair..years ago...and I had been watching the bodyguard the whole time...as soon the bodyguard went to the opposite side of the stage, I took the opportunity to jump up on stage ( she informed us that she was 1 of only 2 people in history to make it on stage) and that after I had gotten up there the bodyguard brought me down by my eye sockets...And I got kicked out of the fair!" We were laughing SOOOO hard because only because of our painted windows, did she even let us out of our ticket...She said...I will give you this ticket, but i need to let you go so that you will make it to the concert...Be sure to try to make it on stage and I will try to stop you on the way back to see exactly how fun it was! So thank you Officer Cepak in Illinois for letting us out of a speeding ticket and letting us get to the concert on time...It was the best concert ever! More to come later on the actual concert! We got some GREAT pictures...I know that you can't wait for them...Continue to check back!
