Ode to Jen

Dear Regular Potato,
I thought I'd write you a note instead of listening to Mrs. Sackman. (Don't tell her Juniors!) So how's your day? You look really cute today, I love your stirrups. Can you smell my perfume? I finally got some Exclamation! Hey, we should both crimp our hair this weekend and have a photo shoot. I'm excited for the football game tonight--it's gonna be rad. I know you have to cheer for JV, but afterward let's scope out some hotties. Should we sleep over at your house or mine? Doesn't really matter to me as long as we have our Ben and Jerry's. Are we going to the church dance on Saturday? I'm so glad I got to know you this year. You are my new Be Fri/ St End. Our Amy and Jen theme song pretty much says it all: (sung to the tune of Mickey Mouse) A-m-y, J-e-n, Amy and Jen. Amy and Jen (Amy and Jen!) Amy and Jen (Do it again!) Forever we will wonder why they are so dang rad! OK that song is way cool and we need to sing it to Kathleen and Marianne. They will totally love it too. MAJK rocks! We need to finish our class project--the video. Someday we will look back on that and really laugh.

It's wierd to think about life after High School--especially since we're only Sophomores. I wonder where we will go to College and what we will major in. Who do you think will get married first? Do you think we'll marry anyone we know? How many kids do you think you'll have? I'm pretty sure I want six. Let's always stay friends no matter what, OK? Even when we're like middle aged and in our thirties (will we ever really be that old?) let's make sure we still talk on the phone and bust our guts laughing about Bonne-bell lip smackers and Sun-In, OK? Speaking of which, I'm due for more Sun-In highlights. My bangs aren't blond enough. Let me know when you get the new Erasure CD. I'm way excited to hear it. Well, I better start listening, Mrs. Sackman is giving me the evil eye. See you at lunch in ten minutes. I can hardly wait for my Choco-Bliss.

Love ya,
Sweet Potato

Happy, Happy, Happy birthday to my dear friend of 20 years (Can you believe it????!!!!) Two husbands and nearly eight children later (Thankfully 5 of those will be yours) I am so glad we have kept our friendship strong through the years. Thank you for so many memories and hopefully many more to come...I love you!

That was so awesome!

I totally forgot about Ms. Sackaman... "Comapare & Contrast..."

Old notes are the best. The Best!

Happy Birthday Jen! Do you really have 5 kids?

I found your site through a few others. (Marc & Linda's, the to Stephanie's, then to Mandee's) I was so glad I did. Looks like things are going great. We are in Memphis. I just started a blog, you can check it out

I remember those good ole days when Mandee and I wished we could be like you and the gang! You were always so nice to us in YW's -even though we were the little Beehives! Thanks for your examples. What I recall about Mrs. Sackman was that she told us to never use the word VERY - it's not a true word. Funny the things we remember from the good ole days.

American Mom said...

By the way - Happy Birthday Jennifer. You are quite the woman. I haven't seen you at Albertson's or City Sandwich lately - hope to run into you soon!

Stephanie, Mandee and Amy...awesome! What a flashback!! Long live those HHS memories, but so much more exciting is to see the "rest of the story" which I so enjoy watching unravel. (Thank goodness for blogs,which create a forum for keeping up to date-- and Amy I am thrilled to know about yours now.) Thank you for your comments!
