My 20-Year High School Reunion!

I recently attended my 20 year high school reunion!  I had been looking forward to it for months, excited to see everyone, enjoy a couple nights out without the kids, maybe get a new outfit (or two) to wear, etc.

So, how did it go?  I'll share a few details!!!

I'm very blessed to have a twin sister who could share in all the fun of our reunion festivities.  So we decided to go shopping just 2 days before we left town.  Great decision.  Had we gone shopping weeks or months prior, I know I would have changed my mind a hundred times on my entire outfit.  I needed two outfits, as we had a Friday night event and a Saturday night event.

I had already purchased these shoes, so I was only searching for clothing and possibly jewelry to go with them.

 Fitting Room Pics
I already had the white jeans, so I chose a plain black sleeveless top to go with them since the shoes were pink! The top actually has variations in the fabric (more sheer at the top and bottom), but it's hard to tell in this pic.

I decided on this very fun cheetah print top and skinny jeans to go with the fringe shoes.  I have to just rave about these jeans....they're the Levi's 710 Super Skinny.  I haven't had Levi's jeans since college, so I had no idea how fabulous they are!! The are soft and comfortable and fit to perfection! 

I decided to wear jewelry that I already had, with the exception of a necklace that I purchased at Walmart for only $5.00 to wear on Saturday night! 

PARTY LIKE IT'S 1996: My homemade t-shrts
I made my sister and myself a fun tank top for the weekend!!  I used gold glitter heat transfer vinyl and cut the designs on my Silhouette cameo.  Then just ironed them on to the tanks.

I just could not hold my hand steady enough to get a good pic!!! Oops! 

We had some time when we got to town to visit our elementary, middle and high school!  So fun!!

My photos from Friday night's event were not the greatest, but here are a few!  I probably spent way too much time before the reunion dieting and exercising and stressing about gaining weight and what I would wear.  Nobody really cares!!  Almost everyone has put on a few (or more pounds) and gotten a couple gray hairs!  It was just so much fun to see everyone and find out about their kids and their jobs and lives since high school!

I didn't get a single photo of a person at the picnic (oops, I was too busy socializing!), but some of the food was cute!!!

SATURDAY NIGHT: The main event!
Wow, what a fun night!!!  I decided not to post the video of me doing the cheerleading dance to our school's fight song....I still remembered almost all of it after 20 years!!!!!  Maybe I'll change my mind and post it later on!  I got tons and tons of selfies with almost every single person who came.  Sadly, I didn't have my light-up selfie case at that point, so many of my photos were dark or blurry.  My sister and I were terribly sad the next morning when we headed back home.  We were sad it was all over!! We had so much fun catching up with all of our classmates (about 50 of them came!).

Jim and me at the end of the night: 

Anybody else out there graduate in 1996??? Did you go to your reunion?

Just for fun, here are a couple pics of me from high school!!! LOL!!!! Guess the secret's out....I'm not a natural blonde!!!
