I wanted to share photos from my 20th high school reunion since you guys helped so much analyzing my dress purchase — Hot Mama or Trying too hard Mama? I bought four different dresses and three pairs of shoes. I ended up with a bustier and a skirt (both of which I could wear later more casually). I returned all the other stuff. Michael was so done with this process.
I think we had about 140 classmates and their spouses show up Saturday night at the J.W. Marriott in Buckhead for Parkivew High School’s Class of 1990 20th reunion. I have to say the hotel really worked with us on price and all the services. They did a great job. I did see New Mom and met her wonderful husband. But I didn’t get a photo with her. (New Mom if you have a shot of us send it to me and I will post with your permission!) We had a wonderful time and saw a lot of great friends. Michael even found a spouse of a friend who was from Augusta so they had a lot to talk about. Michael did a good job talking to people he had never met before.
We had a lovely surprise when we checked into the hotel. The event planner that John, Jenn and I had worked with at the hotel had upgraded our room and John and Jenn’s room to suites (that was your reward for planning your reunion). We had a dining room, living room, and two bathrooms. It was a shock when we walked in. We’re used to having three kids in our bed. We didn’t even know what to do with that much space or that nice of a hotel room!
Michael thought the ladies from our class had held up well — he thought they had good hair and make-up. We had oodles of doctors, architects, engineers and scientists from our class. (Ga. Tech grads were everywhere.) A lot of our classmates commented on different topics they’ve read on the blog over the last few years — even some men. So that made me feel good.
So here are some shots from our big night out!
