Tonight, I have a meeting to help plan our 20th (yes, you read that correctly) High School Reunion. I don't feel old until I hear that and realize that I have been out of high school that long. I have to admit, I wasn't a fan of high school, wouldn't go back if you paid me, but I am actually very excited to see my "old" classmates again :) So in honor of this, let's take a look back shall we? Now, others can feel old with me or totally make fun of me and call my Grandma:
