High School Was How Long Ago?

by Meghann on April 7, 2009

For my senior year of high school I made a slideshow of my friends and I to play at my graduation party. Now this was back in the day before digital cameras were all the craze and scanners were the cool thing. I scanned in a couple hundred pictures by hand and it took me forever.

That slideshow went forgotten for the last 6 or 7 years (wait how long ago was I a senior?) Well, anyways when I was at home this weekend I unearthed the long forgotten slideshow and burned a copy to bring home with me. Its hilarious to see all the pictures and even though I swear it wasn’t too long ago, its amazing how much our styles in clothes have changed as well.

For your viewing pleasure, a quick trip down Memory Lane.

This picture was my friend Allison, myself, Rachel and April gearing up for Junior Homecoming.

I was best friends with these girls in school and its sad that I am honestly not sure what any of them are up to at the moment. Its sad, really.

This is me, my Dad and my Twin Bro at Senior night at our last football game.

I was a Varsity Cheerleader and my Twin Bro played the trombone in the band. Do we scream all american family or what? :)

This was taken at a random bight at Wal-Mart with the besties Allison and April.

Who remembers wearing fun belts with jeans? Gag me! Not any more, thank you. Is anyone else from a small town where they ended up at Wal Mart on Friday nights because it was the only thing open?

Last here is my senior portrait.

Don’t I look all sweet and innocent? Oh, youth… I miss you!

Ok now we can head back to our regular scheduled blogging. Thanks for going on a trip down memory lane with me.

This afternoon’s snack was a 2 parter.

Part 1:

An assortment of dried fruit. They were all yummy, but very sugary. Must remember to limit dried fruit to a couple pieces at a time.

Part 2:

An Original & Blueberry PistachiOats cookie. Yum! I love how filling these little cookies are. :)

Dinner tonight was another one of my ‘throw what ever looks good in the pan’ creations.

Tonight’s creation included

  • Eggplant
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Tofu
  • Asparagus
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Jalapeno Diced Tomatoes
  • Pumpkin & Sage Orzo

Basically while the orzo was boiling in one pan, I heated up everything else in the other until the eggplant was soft and the tofu was chew.

The dish was slightly spicy with a refreshing cooling from the cilantro. I loved it.

I decided to try a Pom Spritzer as well.

Yuck! I think I put to much Pom in this, will have to go for just a splash next time.

And you know one of the Naturally Nutty Nut Butters had to be incorporated in my dessert tonight. :)

I had a nice dollop of the Chocolate Butter Toffee Peanut Butter on top of a 1/2 cup serving of Edy’s Slow Churned Samoas Ice Cream. So good, so good, so good!! YUM!
