Party like it's 2009

I graduated from high school 10 years ago. . .
. . .if I could go back, I would've worried less about boyfriends and spent more time with girlfriends. . .
. . .I would've been nicer. . .

. . .I would've tried harder in sports and school. . .
. . .and I would've appreciated my parents for paying for our house/car/utitilities/food/gas/clothes/andeverythingelse. Life was so simple and I didn't even know it.

I think after 10 years we appreciated each other a little more.

My deepest wish for high school reunions: (Write this down, Ryan) Each person stands on a table/chair surrounded by former classmates while everyone tells them what they REALLY thought of them in high school. I would HONESTLY like to know. That night I looked around the room wondering what all these people thought of me 10 years ago.

Let's get that planned for our 20 year. I'll go first.

Oh, me too. . . I can't help but shudder sometimes when I think of myself in high school, and how people from high school must remember me. ((Shudder))

You guys all look exactly like I remember you as sophomores. Beautiful bunch. I love that you did those photos. If you see any of them again, please tell them hi from me. (And that I did grow up a little.)

Holly,

First off--I do NOT want to do another reunion--not a financially sound investment. Second of all, I know what people thought of me in High School, no need to relive that. You know everyone loved you--except senior year ;) Still you were the Kelli Kapowski (sp).

I just want people to know me now.

It was so fun seeing you again! You looked beautiful and especially so after just havng cute little Larry! I just love you and your husband! We really should get togther again soon. And from what Ryan told me before I met you...nothing has changed. Still the same happy, beautiful, funny Holly Lowell he knew...just a new last name and a cute little family!

I hope you haven't changed that much from high school, I loved the way you were. But I'm sure most of us have grown up a little.
I wish I could of gone to your reunion...or maybe we should have our own with those from different classes that we would like to see. You know the "cool" people!=)

Those pictures with a white background look like they are for an old navy or gap advertisement. Or maybe it's the cover of the dvd of the show you all star in. Or something.

You look SLAMMIN' in these photos!! Seriously. I'm glad you had fun.

PS Where did all those professional looking pics come from? There are really cute.

I think your next post should be about the newest little boxer in Vegas. Just sayin...

It's crazy to think in ten years I'll be doing the same thing. Wow.
