The Class of 1990

I had my twenty year class reunion this weekend. I ended up wearing a dress on Saturday night that I have had for a while. Would ANYONE at that reunion know the difference? NO way! Plus, I didn't want to spend the money or risk getting stuck in another one. There was nobody at the reunion that I was super close to in high school except Kelly (above) and her husband Eric. But, I am so glad I went to my reunion. It was so neat to see people that I had started first grade with. I loved finding out where they live now and what they are doing. Our reunion was very well organized! The committee worked hard and they did a great job.
One of the best parts of the weekend was touring my high school. WOW! Soooooo fun to walk back through those halls and look in those classrooms. I was VERY quiet in school. I came out of my shell in college. I walked through the high school on Saturday thanking the Lord for the life I have....wonderful Christian parents, my dream man and my sweet little girls!

You looked great, Laurie. So glad your reunion was fun! I also graduated in '90, and our reunion will be held this October during homecoming weekend. I've debated going, but you may have inspired me to go ahead ... in an old outfit. Ha! :P

20 year reunions are fun because you truly have lost track of a lot of people and it is fun to see what paths they have taken and who everyone has become. Looked like you had fun and like your dress. Still laughing at getting stuck in the other one. :)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
