FACETIME...

Since the reunion in 2008, I've been incredibly blessed to have some quality facetime with not only NKOTB but more specifically Donnie.

There have been countless times over the past 2 years that I have had conversations with myself about how the inner 17 year old would never have believed that Donnie would not only know me by sight but also know my name. The inner 17 year old would have also never have dreamed that she would so fortunate to spend time with him in his movie trailer, wearing his sunglasses & headphones.

That's right, I wore Donnie Wahlberg's headphones! Picture to come!

Here's where it all started...Sept 2008, Newbury Comics, CD Signing

Then we moved to our first 5* Meet & Greet before showtime - Sept 28th, 2008, Boston Garden

Second 5* Meet & Greet was only two days later on Sept 30th, 2008 - Mohegan Sun, CT. I wasn't fortunate to stand with Donnie but I did get to chill with Joe:

The Mohegan Sun Meet & Greet was one of the better opportunities we had for individual pictures. It was also the very first time I got my first intentional picture of Donnie & I. I asked him to sign my "DOT" sticker and asked for a picture. I was shocked I was able to speak but I did.

I also managed to get pictures with Jon & Danny at that Meet & Greet

The next opportunity for Face Time happened at the next 5* Meet & Greet which was November 8th, 2008 back at Mohegan Sun. I went with Alyson, Stacey & Kelley and we had a plan to make sure Kelley & I were next to Donnie however he was bumrushed by girls we have renamed the "Bubble Dress Girls". So right before the picture was taken I was standing there alone so I ran over to the end, next to Jon (and I ended up holding my own arse):

From November 2008 to March 2009 was pretty quiet for shows/facetime. So when the Spring/Summer tour was announced, we were all over it! We decided to get "normal" seats for the March 2009 show so we could save money to buy 5* Meet & Greet passes for the summer shows.

The first 5* was back at Mohegan Sun on June 18th, 2009. This was a great moment for me because not only did Donnie recognize me but he grabbed me, called me his "love" and wouldn't let go! In fact the security guy had to ask us to "break up our lovefest". Here's the proof:

And the very next night, Stacey & I had our last 5* of the tour home in Mansfield! Wouldn't have wanted it any other place... this night I was not as fortunate to get to stand next to Donnie as those girls were NOT budging. They followed him with arms around his waist around the entire area. So instead of Donnie, I made a beeline to Joe! I was standing next to Jordan at one point and there was a spider on his shoulder which I told him to stand still and I picked it off him. He called me his spider hero. Then it was time for the photo and Joe recognized me, told me to come over and called me "BUDDY!" He also told me how cool he thought my black bracelet was. I almost gave it to him but the photographer distracted us, as it was now picture time.

After the photo, I snuck back to Donnie to ask him to sign my Donnie-tag which he was so excited to do and said I shouldn't feel bad to ask him.

After the summer tour ended, we all kind of wondered what would happen next. And thankfully for us, Donnie wasn't ready to end the facetime either! That August he decided to throw a few parties to celebrate his 40th birthday! One of the parties was held in Boston. My friends couldn't go but I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity so I went solo.

That night was a bit crazy! We waited a long time to get in and then a lot more before he even got into the club. But I was standing in the best spot...I knew that he had to walk by me to make his way up to VIP and it was confirmed the way Johnny (his assistant) was walking in my direction. I stood my ground avoiding the arms & shoulders in my back which got pretty intense once he started walking towards us.

I was thankful that the club took pics and I found as Donnie enters and happens to walk right by me. You can see the back of my head with the bobby pins right next to Johnny’s white shirt, I’m in front of the girl with the blonde bob. Donnie’s next to him in the gray shirt, Robo is directly behind him.

Here he is getting closer and has now turned so he’s facing my side of the… for some reason Johnny was moving perfectly so that Donnie would end up right in front of me.

And Johnny steps by and Donnie is facing me so I go to give him a hug and he stops so I put my hand (I know that’s my hand because of the bracelet and because that’s my hand/head) on his face and then he leans. I was just going to hug him but he kissed me too! And here is where I started to get smooshed as you can tell. But the look on his face literally makes my heart melt!

The fall of 2009 was beyond anything I could have imagined! I had several moments/ opportunities with Donnie and every time, Donnie was so incredibly nice & welcoming. I don't know if I have a favorite moment but there are definite highlights! Each moment was special for me but when he pointed me out of a crowd & knew my name, even giving me a little nickname, I was over the moon for at least a week! It might have made my year! This man has no idea how incredibly special he is to me nor does he realize how special he makes me feel!

EDIT: I'm going to add pics now and then add my stories/moments behind them!

He was so incredibly sweet and wouldn't let go, & kept giving me hugs. He told me he loved me...as he whispered in my ear.
