This is so weird.

I was on a drama team called Youthquest in college, which was part of a larger group of singing, activities, and other drama teams. It was a blast. I met some of my favorite people in the world by being a part of it.

In October, we are having a YQ reunion back at good ol' LU. So, in honor of such an occasion, I have spent hours this past week scanning pictures onto my computer and then posting them online for all of my fellow YQers to admire.

Today I was looking at this pic of my roommate Lisa and I at an LU football game. The fact that I was far too busy socializing and doing photo shoots to pay any attention to the game is not the weird part. Believe me...


I've looked at this picture hundreds of times. In fact, I think I used to have it framed. What caught my eye today for the first time was that guy with his hat on backwards way over in the far left corner. Yep, you guessed it. It's Wes. (In case you're wondering how I can possibly tell, the row of guys next to him are all his college buddies.)

If you don't know our story, Wes and I attended Liberty together for three years, but ran in completely different circles. This may be the only picture we have of us together during our college experience.

I often give him a hard time for not noticing me until three years after we graduated--I mean look at how cute I was. But this picture may speak a thousand words. I find myself wanting to whisper in my ear, "Hey, little girl, turn around pay some attention to what is right in front of you!"

Awesome--I love it! If it makes you feel any better, I don't remember Wes during our LU years. Wait, this might make Wes feel bad. No it won't--he knows how I am by now, I hope! Ha!

Also, I don't remember your hair being this long. But I always remember you being beautiful.

Great post--loved reading it--and I love you!

That is sooo fun and those YQ pictures are great. Thanks for doing that...so I don't have to. I seemed to like overalls and black striped shirts back then. It seemed like every picture of me I was wearing that. You neeed to re-frame that picture so you have a picture of Wes and you in college ;-) So are you going to the reunion for sure?

Thats great, I can totally tell that it's him too. Oh and by the way, you looked hot. ; ) How did Wes not notice you?! In his defense, it looks like he was paying attention to the game, which is usually what you do at football games. : )
