Blast from the Past

Last night I got together with some old high school buddies I recently reconnected with on facebook. We met at a local restaurant and spent a few hours gabbing, getting caught up on each other's lives and talking about what other old friends are now doing. Such fun! I could have spent many more hours laughing with these guys, but a couple of the gals had a long drive ahead of them so we said our goodbyes and talked about getting together again soon. I hope we do. Here is a picture of me and a few of my high school buddies.

From left to right are me (of course), my friend Michelle, who was my locker partner all the way through high school, Tracy, (currently living in Southern California) who was on the cheerleading squad with me from 8th grade through senior year, and finally, Lesley who I played softball with freshman and sophomore years, but she moved away after Junior year.

It's always fun to make new friends and I have loved all the new friends I have made the last year and a half that I have had this blog, but there is just something about friends from your past. They know all the funny/ embarrassing stories about you. Especially stories that you conveniently have forgotten and they are not shy about reminding you of them either. As I get older I am sad that I have forgotten lots of things about my youth so it's nice to have friends to remind you about the good times too.

Now that I'm on Facebook, I am really having a blast reconnecting with friends from my past. If you are not on FB, what are you waiting for? Be warned however, it's highly addictive.

Just realized that this is my 200th post! I can't believe it. As I mentioned on my last post, I will be heading to California tomorrow to visit family. When I get back, I promise to post pictures from my trip and I will definitely have a fun giveaway to celebrate. TTFN!

Hi Lisa - You're so right! Facebook is addictive. My kids finally talked me into joining. Since I joined last night I can hardly stay off the computer. The fun part is that I reconnected with a friend I lost track of about twenty years ago. I'm afraid I won't get any work done now. ~Adrienne~

Hi, I have just spent a very enjoyable hour or so going through your lovely blog. I'd like to add you to my fav. blog list if it's ok?
You are so lucky (well you did say you are a lucky girl in some of the posts!) to have such treasures available to you. I so enjoyed drooling over all the lovely goodies! Best wishes ...Pam in Ireland.

Hi Lisa!
It sure looks like you and your peeps had fun together!
Thanks for the comment on my blog, funny you recognized the wallpaper....the funny thing is the paper you sent me was exactly the right size to cover those, I didn't even have to cut them to size...guess it was meant to be.
I haven't forgotten my promise to you either....something yummy will be forthcoming....
