Party like it's 1992

Here's a little alert. I rarely post pics of myself because I'm not the most photogenic person, but there are a lot of me here.

Can I really believe that 20 years have passed since I graduated Skyline? In someways, it seems like a whole lifetime has passed. In other ways, we all just picked up just where we left off. I always think that is a a sign of a great friendship. The first night was strictly alumni. Such a good way to go. It was so fun to catch up. I was there nearly 5 1/2 hours. It's really, REALLY good to talk with people who knew you before life hit. They knew you when your biggest problem was math tests and pimples. Life has been good for most, but everyone obviously has their "stuff". It's good to know you aren't alone.

Here are my cute LaNichee besties. 

Becky, Suzanne, and Tami C. at the LaNichee lockers.

Mony, Liz W., Michelle,  and Jeff

Me and my sweet Daela. My first year in Dance Company, she taught to break my ballet training and get funky. Love her! She also slept out for Janet Jackson the rain,,,,for a bunch of us. Funnest concert ever.

Emi, me, Kristi

Shane, Cliff, Pete, and Tom

My Eastwood Elementary girls: me, Robin, and Allison

The second night was a more formal night with spouses. They did a great job. If anything my class was good at, it was partying.
Kathy, Mel, and Liz W.

Kelly, Ryan, and Jeff. Kelly used to get on my case that my shorts were too short.  I remember him making fun of me since I went to BYU (land of knee length shorts) but that I found a loop hole by wearing my cheer squad skirt.

I thought spouses might drag the party down, but leave it to Bill to know half the people there. He went to BYU with several girls I knew in high school. 
Charlie, Kathy, me, Bill

Matt, me. Way better than our Senior prom pic with the flowered cumberbun. It was soooo cool.

My junior high girls: me, Renee, Emi

Jill and me

If my scanner wasn't belly-up, I'd be able to show some pics from the photo booth they had set up. They were really fun. I was pretty nervous to go. I'm just sure no one will remember me, which is silly, because there is no one I really forgot. My very closest high school friend Tami, is sadly, one of the 9 that is no longer with us. It was kind of hard to see the super close friends and know that mine was not there. But, blessed with so many other wonderful people who made my high school experience sweet and crazy. See you all at the silver.

You look gorgeous in all of these! High school reunions are surreal but hilarious--there is something about people who knew you in your youth/shared elementary school memories that makes you get each other in a way no one else can!
