20 Year Reunion
Last night was my husband's 20 year high school reunion. He was senior class president and over a year ago, he and his VP from high school, started working on it. They did most of the leg work for figuring out a location, the date, cost of the event, etc.
It was quickly decided that a web-site needed to be created for the reunion and neither of them had the time to do it. Enter, me, wife to Senior Class president, who realized that if a web-site was going to created, it was going to be done by me. Besides this blog, which is pretty easy to create, I had no "create" web-site experience. I love my husband and I wanted anything he was associated with to be a success, so I jumped into the project hoping I could pull it off.
So, I learned how to create the web-site. I learned how to set up a paypal account. I started e-mailing the other student body officers. I started leaving posts on facebook announcing the web site and reunion. I reserved a pavilion for the "Family Night" event. I was in daily e-mail communication with various graduates from my husband's high school. I sent many e-mails telling people to buy tickets, what the dress "code" was, directions to the family event, defusing a few mean people who wanted to get their licks in about why the reunion location, cost, dress code, etc. were lame., etc.
I learned a lot and it ended up being a really fun enjoyable experience. I really got to know a ton about my husband and the people with whom he went to high school. Fortunately, many people but mostly, the beautiful lady in the black dress, also did a ton of work and we pulled off the reunion last night and it was a WONDERFUL experience.
Here is Dentist husband with two of the student body officers from high school.
Because my sister's read this, my outfit and shoes I wore. One day, I gave myself 10 minutes on-line to buy something new (I'm not much of a clothes horse) and ended up with the above items. Both are from Talbots but I ended up having to take the dress to a tailor to have it fit and kind of "redone". (Again, I purchased it on-line, so I didn't get a chance to really try it on.) I buy a lot of my clothes from Talbots (for a while when I was single, before kids, the ladies in the Denver store, knew my mom, me and sisters by name because we shopped there so often) and this dress originally had a tie waist which just wasn't working, so I had that removed and tailored to make it more fitted. I was happy with it.
Now, with Girl's Camp over (see previous post) and now this over, I feel like I have a ton of extra brain power available. Maybe I'll start working on a PhD dissertation. :)
