Oh to be young again...NOT!

Though I will say I had a great time dressing up and somewhat reliving my youth through going to my sister-in-laws senior banquet, which is just like prom, they just call it banquet. I am so glad I am at the stage of life I am in right now. Eleven years ago on May 15th J and I got engaged at his senior banquet that was held in the same hotel as Liz's. It was cool to be in the same place with the same guy doing the same thing only 11 years later. I bet you are wondering what the difference between banquet and prom is right? Well, as the name indicates we have it in a banquet hall instead of everyone going different places to eat we all eat together. Oh yeah and parents are invited. They also invite the 8th graders of the school kind of like welcoming them into High School. After the meal the seniors do a program this year they had a slide show, skit, class song, video and speech. I wish I would of taken a video of the skit because my sis-in-law was in it and was the main person. It was HILARIOUS! If one of the seniors took a video of it and put it on facebook I will try and copy it and put it here. She did a great job on it. She also gave the speech and did a fantastic job, she was so poised and elegant. After the program the kids go to another location and have a dance. This year the seniors rented a boat. I bet you are wondering if I also took pictures. Well I did. Would you like to see them? You do?! Here they are...if you are a friend on facebook you've probably already seen them.


Well there you have it! Like I said it was a great night...but I'm glad I'm not that age anymore.

That sounds like a really cool idea, and lots of fun. I'm finding myself wishing they had done that when I was in high school (I probably would have enjoyed it more!) You look fabulous, and your hair is amazing!
