Freestyle Explosion

Ok its a long story and I have no pics but thats another story thats really not important - I took a lot of pics but on someone elses camera so maybe they will be nice and send them to me! I have to tell you all about the serious walk I took down Memory Lane last night!!! My oh so Mr. Happy husband has a thing about leaving the house and going to places that are soooo crowded so he was not happy to leave the house last night, but I kept telling him we would be in a suite, not in the middle of the whole Sovereign Bank Arena! So once we got there he loosened up and we actually had a freaking blast!!!! We saw Coro, The Cover Girls, Judy Torres, Lissette Milendez, Rockelle and TKA/K7 and many more too but those were our faves! This is music we grew up on, not a lot of people know Freestyle (all though they packed 9000 people into that arena and had a sold out show!) and It made remember when I was falling in love with my husband that I only had a few friends who shared in the love of Freestyle, and when we realized that we both shared this love for this music, it was just a rekindling thing we had going on!!! Last night he told me if I didn't calm down I wasn't going to have a voice today and that was fine with me I was so happy I still remembered the words! He was laughing sooo hard at me too because he said "You sing all the parts, the song, the back-up and the music, your cracking me up!" We used to have a blue tape (yes a cassete- we are going way back!!!) and it was the best tape ever - we loved it and we were so corny we would sing it endlessly! We had the biggest box of freestyle tapes - mixes from friends who wanted to be dj's and special tapes that we would travel to the Music Factory in Sewel NJ because that was like the Freestyle Music Store! One time we even met LIL Suzy there and she signed pics and tapes and we were crazy kids then! Honestly I think that was the only thing missing from last night - Lil Suzy - where was she? and Stevie B - wished he was there too! Well the show was great for us maybe even a little theraputic, I know we are not old really but the concert reminded us of "our younger days" and of who we were and a little of where we came from! It is wierd how you loose touch with some things and its a great feeling when you remember again!
