reunited and it felt so good....

I'm waaaaay behind on this post, but it is too important to just blow off...

On August 9, 2014, after months of hard work, the Girls of '94 pulled off one hell of a 20th Class Reunion.  It was F.U.N. 

Let me start by saying that planning a class reunion is a huge pain in the ass.  Even if you get to plan it with your best friends.  Impossible to please everyone and although social media made it so much easier to locate classmates, it also opened the floor to attention-seeking nimrods who wasted our time by complaining about the venue, cost, and not sending invitations to people who did not graduate with us.  Bleh.  But the GO'94 are strong women and after a few Facebook "screw you"s, and one "kiss my ass", the weekend was planned!

I was super excited about the reunion and never had second thoughts about going...which is totally unlike me because I try and talk myself out of most events.  At our 10-yr reunions, I was 8 months pregnant and had literally driven straight-through from Florida the day of, so even though I had a great time, the exhausted prego thing overshadowed most of the event.  This year, however, I planned to go all out and even enjoy my first adult beverage in over 10 years.  Buh-Bam!

On Friday night, we had a mixer at Bindy's Bar.  Very low key and stress free.  We had lots of people in attendance and it was great to see so many familiar faces from the good 'ol days!

Working the welcome table.  Won't be long before that hooch is all up in my face....
Awwww yeah...keep em' cold and keep em' comin'
Oh there she is.  My close-talking~in my face~friend Angela :)

Welcome! Great to see you again! Who are you? You look great! Damn, you've aged.  Take a name tag! So we can finally figure out who you are.

 Friday night was great and left everyone super excited for Saturday! (I find it funny that the only pictures I have are ones with friends that I see all of the time!!!)
