guts

Rolled up jean shorts, moussed hair, white socks, sturdy shoes, wispy bangs, scrunched socks over leggings... pretty obvious when we graduated, right?

Our ward had a high school reunion party and we went all out.  We cracked ourselves up.  I was actually a lot more embarrassed once we got there because we were the only ones that went all out.  I didn't think it was that big of a deal until we got there and it was kind of a mellow party so everyone looked up when we walked in.  Kind of like those tween movies where someone thinks there is a costume party and they show up all decked out, and the then they walk in only to find out the joke was on them.  Oh well, we got  a laugh (and my bishop.  He is STILL giggling that my nickname was Pookie.  Honestly, it wasn't ever that big of a deal).  

I thought this look might bring back some memories for some.

At the party, they had those plastic trays, fruit cups, sloppy joes, bags of chips, and cartons of milk.  It was really cute.  
Oh, Samuel.  We couldn't have posed him to do that if we tried.  Eva got a kick out the gear.  They fought over the pom-poms all night.

...Oh, I know! Our last elder's quorum thingy was advertised as a pool party! We came geared to swim, everyone else came geared in their full on pant's, skirts, and jewelery. Well, I think ya'll look great!

Funny, I'm with Abbi. I thought the picture of you and Karl was taken years ago. You both look so young...And who has a high school reunion party then DOESN'T dress up anyway? Weird.

It took me a minute to find Samuel :) And wait, your nickname isn't pook anymore?

Hilarious! I especially love Karl's rolled up jean shorts with the white socks and doc marten style shoes. So 90's!

Love it! I thought that you guys really were high schoolers in that picture until I saw Samuel peeking out from behind you. Nice hair -- only you could get every detail just right.

I love that you dressed up! I'm sure you are the hipsters of the ward and everyone was wishing they were as cool as you. At first when I saw the picture, I was thinking, "What? I didn't know they dated in high school." You look awesome!

That's awesome! I love that you went all out. It just makes it so much fun. You guys look great!

Your HAIR! How did you remember how to do it like that?!?!?! It brought me back to MiaMaids days! And I concur with the others about Karl's rolled shorts. Killer! Christina, we miss YOU guys! Hope all's going well with Karl's striking it out on his own. He's such a smarty-pants, he'll be successful in whatever he sets his mind to. Hope to see you at the Hyde Park 'reunion', if not sooner!!!!

Have to comment about the 'showing up to the costume party as the only costumed soul' episode. We had a Relief Society activity for the Laurels graduating to R.S. & their moms, and everyone was supposed to wear something from the year they turned 18. I couldn't find any plaid flannel anything, so I threw on my prom dress. (It wasn't even cool the year I wore it to prom!) Only two or three others even dressed up, and they had just done the minimum like a shirt. Felt like an idiot! Props to you for decking out & not being LAME!
