time travel tuesday ~ high school graduation

It’s that time of year… graduation! Which made this week’s time travel theme very easy to decide. So, what do you remember about graduating from high school? Was there anything special about the actual ceremony you remember? What did you do after graduation?

I remember bits and pieces from my graduation night. I remember wearing a light turquoise strapless dress that my mom made for me (under the cap & gown). I remember walking across the stage and waiting in a big room to line up. Our graduation was at the Myriad Convention Center. I remember my bff Darla finding me and crying. I remember taking a picture with my twin friends (Shelli & Kelli), they are under 5′ tall and I was towering between the two of them. The picture below is shortly after my graduation. I was dating Matt at the time. My graduation was a bit of a blur, and then we came home to have a party with family and friends.



This picture is one of my senior pictures. Check out the 80’s hair! Yikes!


Next year I will watch my baby daughter walk across that stage! Amazing. Where does time go?

    Well, I didn’t really have a graduation, sad! My dad didn’t like some things going on at school and had me take summer school after my junior year and get out of high school a year early, so I had already had a year of college when I should have been graduating. I don’t think I’ve ever really gotten over it!

    Love the pics!! For me graduating in the 80’s I didn’t have my “big” hair until after I graduated… LOL

    This was a fun time travel.

    I love your picture–a couple of my children graduated in the 80’s so I have very similar graduation pictures for them.

    You are so right about time passing quickly.

    My third child graduates next year…I’m shocked at that. Seems like just a few months ago he was starting school.

    And let’s not make fun of 80’s hair, okay? It’s not our fault that we were so fashionable. lol

    I’ve been meaning to reply to your comment about meeting in OKC, but I haven’t spent much time on the computer this past week. I would LOVE to meet with you. I’m thinking of driving up alone to visit my dad one of these days soon. I’ll let you know when and maybe we can arrange lunch or something. Between blogging, kids and big hair, I’m sure we’d have plenty to talk about! lol

    I graduated in the mid-70s, so that was either before big hair became popular or mine just wouldn’t cooperate. 🙂 This was fun to think about, though I only remember bits and pieces, too.

    I graduated June 2, 1991… I wore a really pretty white dress under my red grown and my red cap. I remember graduatetion but what I remember most is that on June 1 I had my graduation party and after the party DH took me out to our resivor and by the moon light on the water asked me to marry him..(this after my dad told us both no no no we were too young) I accepted the ring anyways.. and that NIGHT was one heck of a long night when I got home… Lots of yelling and screaming by my parents and orders that I had to give the ring back.. So I was really tired on graduation day and I was also wearing my ring but trying to hid it from my parents. It was a long couple days… but Thankfully it all worked out and DH and I are still together today in 2008 and have 4 beautiful kids.. So it all worked out.
