Weekend Recap - High School Reunion and Family Birthday Party

Over the weekend, my husband and I attended his 20 year high school reunion (class of 1991).  I never went to my 10 year reunion (class of 1999), so I was curious how this would go.  I had so much fun!  Great people + great 90's music (i.e. "Too Legit to Quit" "...That Girl is Poiiiissssoooon") + 3 margaritas = A Super Fun Night :)  I think I had such a good time since it wasn't my own reunion...I didn't feel the pressure of looking better than my high school self and finding people to chat with.  My graduating class was so large and everyone I would want to see I have kept in contact with...I decided to skip it.  So far no regrets.   There is an 8 year age difference between us, so Matt feared I wouldn't have a good time, but quite the opposite.  It just reminded me of a different time in my life....6th grade! Don't be a hater Matt, you're married to someone still in their 20's...for about 6 more weeks :(


What better time to take a self portrait while in the restroom...


Earlier that day, we had a lil' family gathering for June birthdays.  I love going to Matt's Aunt Sam and Uncle Paul's.  They live out where your neighbor is a little down the street and you're surrounded by trees.   It's always great food and great company.  I've really enjoyed having family in driving distance. Growing up, I never was close enough to family (which is unfortunate since I have some super awesome cousins), so when Matt and I got married I immediately loved "family time."  Usually the weekends are reserved to "make the rounds."  It helps that I like his family...or should I say they like me...right??? :)


Everyone have a good week!

Hey there, supermodel! Love the self-portrait, and that photo of you and Matt is SOOOOO cute! Glad you had a good time at his reunion. I forgot you all have about the same age difference as we do. And ha, my own 10-year reunion was hilarious since I look NOTHING like when I was in high school and most people didn't recognize me and thought I was one of the cheerleaders (instead of Napoleon Dynamite's twin sister like I really was). Good times.
