30th High School Reunion Recap

Since some of you have asked, I thought I would give you a recap of my 30th high school reunion.

First of all, it was at the Lockhart Smokehouse in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, and the food was AMAZING! One of my classmates owns the restaurant and he closed the whole thing for the evening just for us.

As I was talking to the different people coming in, one of my classmates, a man, said, “Oh, you went with the black outfit!” And I was all, “… YOU read my blog???” And then I cracked up to think of it! (I’m looking at you, Gregg!)

I’m not sure why, but the thought of a man reading here struck me as so funny. And also made me wonder how many things I should be embarrassed about. (Note to self: No more posts about “female issues.”)

I had decided on the blue dress with boots, but thanks to a fall at the roller skating rink the day before the event that left me with huge bruises on both my knees, I went with the black pants at the last minute.

30th high school reunion

Here I am with my drill team besties.

About THE cheerleader: She was a grade or two ahead of me, so she wasn’t there. Another cheerleader who was there and had read my post took me aside and said, “Was it MEEEE??? I am so sorry if it was!” I assured her that it wasn’t and she was so relieved. She said she had worried about it that day!

I had a fabulous time catching up with friends, some I hadn’t seen in the 30 years since graduation. It is so interesting to hear all the stories and follow all the turns their lives had taken. One guy came all the way from Wyoming!

I’m really glad I went and I’m so glad I can continue keeping up with everyone and their families on Facebook.

What about you? Do you attend your high school reunions?

DIY Pain Relief Cream

DIY Pain Relief Cream

I whipped up this recipe for “pain relief cream” that I found on the 1000+ member private essential oils group I’m in on Facebook.

The group I’m in is such a blessing, because it is a place I can ask questions of long time essential oil users, or use the search feature to look for successful treatments to ailments, or post success stories that have worked for me.

I made this recipe because I have a couple of friends who are in almost constant pain. One is a cancer survivor and another is a friend from high school who was involved in a wreck and is suffering from whiplash.

I gave the cancer survivor a jar of my DIY pain relief cream, and here was her response to me in a private message:

Connie, I used the mixture last night, and the pain was much less!!! I just rubbed it on my back and my ribs, and it seemed to really help!!! Then I just now I was hurting in my back, rubbed it on, and man it is so much better!!! I think this will work!!!

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to meet my friend who had the wreck, because she had to cancel going to our high school reunion since her back was hurting so bad. I am planning to meet her for lunch this week, and I have the cream already in my purse to give her.

Here is the recipe I used:

DIY Pain Relief Cream

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (solid)
  • 10 drops Young Living Valor
  • 10 drops Young Living Peppermint
  • 10 drops Young Living Pan Away

1. Combine ingredients and whip together with mixer.

2. Place in glass container, and use sparingly as needed.

3. Keep out of reach of children. (Contains small amounts of wintergreen, or methyl salicylate. Topical application of methyl salicylate can be hazardous if it is smeared over 40 percent of the body, if someone has a skin condition or if another medication interacts negatively with the products.)
