Class of 99'

Well the time has come....the 10 year reunion invites have arrived!!! Am I really at the stage in my life where reunion invites come in the mail? Where did the time go?
Fortunately, I mean unfortunately (very sarcastic) I will not be able to attend this party. Why?
EUROPE BABY; I WILL BE IN EUROPE!
Dang it.
(again very sarcastic)

I will say that each year I loved high school a little more...
...like boys
football games
friends
sports
student government...


...and with each year I learned a little more...
like learn to sing BINGO in spanish
like how to make lots of friends becuase my teachers would put me in a new seat weekly...I am a talker....


By my senior year I learned all I needed to know....so I thought!



Since my graduation day in June of 99'
I Learned even more...

first and foremost: WAXING of the EYEBROWS

always have and always will have a round face

I dont have to use math everyday

The word PERIOD isnt that embarassing

Moms really dont have eyes in the back of their heads

Keyboarting really dod pay off

Who really cares that I wore longer shorts

Is it really nessessary to shave your legs everyday?

Parents accutally know what they are talking about (dont tell my mom that though)

I was in really good shape

sticking with panio would of been a good idea

My parents "pick one night to go out over the weekend" rule was actually a good rule

fair weather friends...avoid them, thats what mom always said

The boys I thought were cute ....heavens no

Your tastes change
and...
it really is more
important to be nice

...So Here is to Class of 99'...

while I'm basking in the sunlight of Italy

Don't worry, you won't be missing much by not going to your reunion. Unless you have really good friends you want to see that you haven't seen in a long while or you have a planning committee who actually plans something fun, you'll have much more fun in Europe!

Erin, you will miss out on a whole lot of nothing. Speaking from experience ( i went to ours last year). You have yourself a fantastic time in Italy, and eat some Gelato instead. It is fantastic.

Fantastic post! I was laughing the whole way through...so, so true. Isn't it amazing that when you were a teenager, you knew everything and your parents were stupid. They really know a lot. I had fun at my reunion, but I had a class of 70 people so we all talked to each other and knew every story others were telling..."remember when?" Italy is WAYAYAYAYAY more fun than a 10 year reunion.

Ha my reunion was last year and I did not go either. I just did not care at all to go so I didn't and plus it was just a big drinking fest I am sure! I totally agree with all the things you learned since then as well, cute post!

Carrie and Shane said...

Erin I loved that. So thoughtful and so true! My ten year reunions is coming up next year. I am also truly jealous of your trip to Europe. One day...

Heidi said...

Maybe I should plan a trip like that next summer. THats when mine is. You are too funny!

Alison said...

Clever post Ernie! I love it. =)
I only see 3 photos...does that mean you finished HS in 3 years? You will have a fantastic time in Italy and I wouldn't worry about missing a thing (period).
Love you! xox
Nice Brows....I guess we are related after all.

Jenny said...

I love it, you are too funny! BTW, I didn't go to mine either, but your excuse is definitely better.

Escobar Family said...

Loved your post and so excited for your European Vacation! Sounds like so much fun!

kelseyp said...

Erin I am laughing so hard right now! i thought of our conversations when we thought we had found our "someone" in high school. i love it!!... and i would much rather be in europe!

Brianne said...

you are so funny, I keep debating if I should go to mine in August. Yay for Europe!

malmfamily said...

Hey Erin! It really is crazy that 10-year reunions are already coming up! You have a great blog and I'm really great and reading it, but not so great at leaving comments. Sweet you guys get to go to Europe! France and Italy...awesome! How long will you guys be there? If you want to take a trip to Sweden any time, you'll always have somewhere to stay! :) It's fun keeping tabs on you.

Christine said...

So you still look just as good as you did in high school.

I just went to Jeff's 20th reunion this last year. Definately more fun for him than for me...but I'm sure you'll still have way more fun in Italy!

megan&steve said...

Too bad you have to miss out. Your senior picture is WAYY beter than mine was. 10 years already? Dang girl. You look great & I loved the captions. I might not make it to Cali this July :( I'll have to call you soon.

Hillary said...

Well said! Age does bring wisdom!Next big milestone...turning 30. Personally, I'm a little scared.

kRiStEn_S said...

haha! Someone couldn't pay me enough to go to anything that had to do with my high school. I hear people say that high school was the best time of their life, not me! I could live my whole life skipping that experience completely. :)

Lacy Rane said...

:)

Shannon said...

Cute post Erin. Derek really loved it.

HandB said...

Erin you are so brave to put your high school pics up! Wow you rock. I wouldn't have been able to!! Funny post!

JonandLo said...

ok, period is still a gross word. think about it..do you ever use it..."I'm on my period right now." Nope, never say that. and be thankful your eyebrows are thick enough to wax...i wish mine were thicker =) Yea for Europe!

Alison said...

Guess who just got an invitation to a TWENTY year reunion?!!! YIKES...ME! It just came yesterday. It looks like the class of 89 & 90 are combining! Too bad I won't be in Italy.
