25 Years Later

Kimberly posted a graduation pic of herself and a pic of her now (she didn't change much at all really) and I thought I wouldn't be able to participate since I figured, in the 12 plus moves I've made over that time period, those pics were tossed, left behind or somewhere at my mom's. Well, today, while digging through an old box in the garage looking for pool supplies (yes, we opened it up today and yes, Mike jumped in and yes, it's was frigid and better him then me *wink*).

Anyway, in the box was the little black proof folder stamped "Class of 82"-Elena proclaimed "You look so pretty in these picture and so much younger!"-shocker there.

I hadn't realized it was 25 years until, at work, someone called for a will and it was an old classmate from high school (yes, we're at that age where we think about wills and such)-then another one came in for a deed and then my boss reminded me "Deneen, it has been 25 years for us all"-knock me over with a feather.

So here are the then and now pics. Elena took the now pics and remember, I spend half the day at the 4-H center and the other half in a dirty garage and cleaning the pool stuff-












Oh how I wish for the airbrushing here!
And just because Elena took so many:




My mood right about now is just what the pic shows~

(They're all clickable-I just prefer you don't click any of the "now" shots :P)

You and Elena look very much alike. I love the final pic. I feel that way around my students a lot.

hehe! you hair is exactly the same. that's awesome.

Marvie said...

Yep, no denying Elena is your girl =) You sure haven't changed much!

Lucky for ya'll, since I never went to 12th grade, I have no Senior pic so I can't participate in this one!

Deneen said...

Yeah Rob, I noticed the hair thing too. It's funny because over the years I've had it straightened and much longer and recently had it all cut off and now it's the same as back then! I noticed Kimberly's was too!

Daisy said...

What a cool idea! I'll need to dig out my senior picture and scan it...

Sheila said...

You haven't change much...awww too cute. I am afraid... I mean very afraid of digging for my then and now pics...lol.. but just may do it.

Kel said...

I agree with pervious posters you and Elena looked so much a like!
You haven't changed much and your hair is very similar!

Tandi said...

Wow, that does not at all look like 25 years of difference!

DixieRedHead said...

I have to agree with everyone else. Elena=you, hair=same. You really haven't changed much D. I'll have to see what I can find of mine....

Priscilla said...

You really haven't changed that much! This meme is making me feel old, though. I graduated high school in 1979 - 28 years ago! I might do this, but it will take a couple of days to find my pictures and get them scanned at work.

Bron said...

I'm so jealous you stayed so cute! Love the pictures. :) (I WON'T be finding one of mine! LOL)

Linda said...

I think you've aged very well.
I did pretty good until I hit 50.

Amy O'Neill Houck said...

You look the same--great both then and now!

Mimi said...

I love seeing your pics - then and now, pretty!

April said...

Well hot damn you don't look like someone 25 years past graduation! You and Elena have always looked alike to me, but even moreso in the younger you photo.
It's only been 10 years for me, but my hair is the same it was when I graduated. It's my go-to haircut that I always come back to.

25 yrs have been very good to you. your before and after look very similar. i graduated in 1972!!! would love to do a then and now. need to start digging for pics and take a current one.

Kelly said...

You look great! You haven't really changed all that much. Perhaps you look smarter. :)

I wish that I had graduated in the conventional sense of the word. I got my GED a few years ago. No prom, no pictures, and no party! Doesn't that suck?

Elena does look exactly like you. Mini you~

Kimberly said...

Love the pics! You look so much the same!

I'll have to see what I can dig up from the trenches while I'm home in July!
