I’m excited to share with you all some pictures I took of Trent’s little sister’s first high school winter banquet. I went to a small private school… You know the kind where you have to wear limited colored polos, ridiculously long pleated skirts, and matching socks. It’s also the kind of school where boys have to have their hair at a certain length, piercings and tattoos are unacceptable, and you will get detention if you fail to follow the 6-inch rule. I consider myself a goody-to-shoes, but my freshman year alone I received 14 detentions… IN ONE SEMESTER! Oh the glory days of detention where I sat against a wall peeling the chipped paint for thirty minutes all because of my wrong colored polos and the lengths of my skirts. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t trying to be some hoochy mama, but when you enter high school at 5’3 and within a few months you are 5’8 there will be a noticeable difference in your hem length. Teachers had no sympathy for my growing pains. As for the wrong colored polos write ups… I have no excuse I just loved my pink polos.
My high school experience was a different world for me because my whole life prior I attended large public schools. I made the decision to switch to a private school within the last few weeks of summer because I was ready for a change… I wanted to attend school with my older sister, I wanted to be involved in everything, and I wanted to walk into a classroom and know (not just recognize) every face that sat next to me. I knew being apart of high school with only 400 students rather than 20958013852 students would make that possible. So even with all the over the top rules and regulations, the small bubble that my school was held in will forever contain some of my greatest memories. In four years I gained lifelong friends, an amazing fiancé, and a great deal of patience while watching the clock tick away in detention.
Now enjoy these amazing pictures of cutest Sophomore on campus. I surprised Natalie with a make-up and hair session for her first winter banquet because being the only girl in a family of 4 older brothers I knew she deserved a day full of pampering. She was an absolute beauty and with her blue sequenced dress she looked like a greek goddess… Her date was a lucky man! I loved, loved, loved hanging out with my future sister-in-law in preparation for winter banquet. Oh and yes it is a dinner banquet because we all know what a high school dance could lead to… fun ;)
Is she the cutest or what?!
Oh and if you want a good laugh enjoy these pictures of Trent and I at our high school banquets.
I’m lucky to have had him as my date for all four years. I’m even luckier that our pictures also got less awkward each year.
That is little Natalie posing with us at our Junior year banquet… WHOA!!!!
I remember being so mad because I did NOT want him to cut that super cute surfer hair.
Wow, glad nobody listened to me. Dreamboat alert!
