my 10 year high school reunion

my high school reunion was a total bust.
i got all ready with the help of my friends. 
carolyn was on outfit and make-up.
while kara was on hair.
i've never wore skinny jeans before but found i actually like them.
i used to kind of scoff at them.
(briene, melissa, me)

i went with two of my good friends.
melissa flew in from kansas.
if she hadn't put the whole idea together, than there was no way in heck i would have gone.
{i'm still actually kind of wondering why i went.}

i had no idea that the reunion was going to be at a mexican bar.
but it was.
i guess it was fitting considering the name of my high school is corona.
however, there were only 6 mormons at the whole thing and i think we were the
only ones who weren't wasted after the first hour.
the music was so loud that you couldn't even hear yourself talking.
so that made conversation a little difficult.
the only positives were the good mexican food and these cool disco stars hanging from the ceiling.
go aztecs!
(that was our mascot)
my absolute highlight was when we left and went to sugar bowl for an ice cream treat.
i ordered a  sundae with chocolate ice cream and chocolate syrup topped with malt.
it was deeelish.

it was still fun to get to hang out with my friends and to get all fancied up.
something i don't do much of but enjoy doing every once in a while.

being at the reunion with a bunch of people who i see have taken such different paths
makes me thankful for the choices i have made and for my religion.
i am so thankful for my wonderful husband and for my sweet children.
i am so thankful for my life.

I love the girls you went with! That in itself would have been a good time. Melissa is a riot no matter how bad the party is! look great in skinny jeans! Not all of us can pull them off.

Looks like so much fun! I'm still debating if I want to go to mine next year. So fun to run into you shopping. We are heading up to S.G this weekend too. Hopefully we can see you in the marathon. Good luck!! I'll call you after you recover!!!!! You are amazing 8 marathons...honestly! Amazing!

It was a bit of a bust, but WE had fun together. You did look HOT Deb! It was so great to see you.
I Love that we have been friends our WHOLE LIVES!! I think I'm one of the few who can say that. :)
