The Awkward Gang Reunited To Celebrate Barret Swatek's Birthday

Aunt Ally and some Palos Hills residents feted the special occasion.

Aunt Ally is known to throw a stellar Awkward rager -- so it's only fitting that the woman behind the party animal would reunite with her cast members for a special occasion.

Barret Swatek, who will return to this network with her fellow co-horts on March 15, spent quality time with some familiar grinning faces celebrating her birthday. And thanks to Molly Tarlov, we have a glimpse inside the MTV-filled bash.

"Picture is rag tag as hell but it's our girl's birthday!" Sadie Saxton's alter ego captioned the Instagram snapshot above, which finds the guest of honor front and center, flanked by Jillian Rose Reed, Nikki DeLoach, Beau Mirchoff and Brett Davern. "Happy birthday, @barretswatek! I don't know what I'd do without you." Ditto, M.

While this gathering doesn't seem to resemble that very first introduction to Lacey Hamilton's BFF courtesy of that epic house shindig -- or Aunt Ally's wild wedding -- it still looks like a fun-filled night for all of Palos Hills' quirky residents.

Be sure to offer Barret your well wishes, and catch the brand-new season of Awkward beginning on Tuesday, March 15 at 10/9c!
