The Countdown Begins

I just saw a post on Facebook with the date of my 10 year high school reunion. It's 5 months from TODAY.

[INSERT PANIC HERE]

Now all I can think of is how in high school, all I could think about was my 10 year high school reunion. I literally remember thinking at graduation how the next time I might see most of my classmates would be at the reunion. And since the glorious movie, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, actually came out when I was in high school, I've been long anticipating this moment in time.



Now, don't get me wrong, I'm sure I haven't changed a lot. I pretty much look about the same.

This picture was taken of my friend Erica and I almost 10 years ago on my 18th birthday:

And this one was taken of the two of us last year (Erica, I'm making you my date. Hope you're excited for the reunion!):

Basically, I think I might need to put myself on a better diet. Eat a little bit less for the next five months.

Romy: I've been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.
Michele: That's impossible. Did you deduct sixteen pounds for your shoes? 

My Red, White and Blue Body Challenge has deducted a total of three lbs. from my body. That's it. I'd like to lose about 20 more. I'd like to be a little bit impressive. Wear something sexy. Show off a bit.

At least I won't have to lie about what I've been up to for the past ten years.

Romy: Michele? Now that I'm looking at this, our lives don't seem as impressive as I thought.
Michele: They don't?
Romy: Well, do you think it's impressive that we're still single, and we've been living together for ten years, and I'm a cashier and you're unemployed?
Michele: Not super-impressive. 

In the last ten years I've earned three degrees, become a fashion designer, managed to pay all my bills on time every month, learned to cook, bake and clean, and have recently become quite an international business woman. Oh, and I have an insanely hot and successful boyfriend.

Romy: Do you have some sort of business woman special?
Truck Stop Waitress: Come again?
Romy: Well, we're business women.
Michele: From LA.
Romy: And you know how some places have like a lunch special?
Michele: For business women...
Truck Stop Waitress: We don't have anything like that.
Romy: Okay...we'll take 2 burgers, fries, and medium cokes cause were in a hurry.
Michele: We're due in Tucson later... some business thing, you know.
Truck Stop Waitress: What kind of business you all in?
[Romy and Michele give a long pause]

Not bad. Maybe I don't have much to worry about after all.

I'm curious, Are you going to your high school reunion? Did you go? Did you skip it? What are your thoughts on  reunions in general?

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the gym. Promise I won't forget to deduct sixteen lbs. for my shoes.

  1. I graduated in 1983 (yikes!) and went to my 10 year. I was SO bored because I wasn't part of any clique back then, and that's all who went. lol!

  2. 3 degrees? That's very impressive! What are all 3 degrees? Are they fashion related? and 5 months to lose 16 pounds, you can DEFINITELY do it.. I wanna lose 10 with you! Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

  3. our entire class "missed" our 10 year, so we had a 15-year one last december. it was really fun - it's amazing how all that drama was seemingly in my head.

  4. Girl, it sounds like you've got everything going fabulously for you, so I wouldn't sweat it! You are successful, you look great, and you always seem to be a happy person. I'm positive you'll have the leg-up on most of your former classmates!

  5. Yes, I went to my 10 year 6 years ago....It was crazy. All the girls looked really good but all the guys looked like crap. It was fun though! (However, that was before Facebook so we really had no idea what everyone had been up too for 10 yrs.)
    I'm about 35 lbs thinner( than I was in 1994 ) and I live in Hawaii and surf now so I guess people thought that was pretty cool. I'm pretty happy I went and if we have a 20 yr I'll probably go to that one too ( but bring my hot Argentine man lol!) xo

  6. So glad we're not doing this, and if I'm not going. Way too much craziness in one place. ;)

    Things are going great for you girl, so you shouldn't be worried!!! You'll have a blast then. I'm sure!

    xoxo, S
