A Jersey Shore reunion is — in our opinion — long overdue. But fortunately enough, over the weekend a few of our favorite cast members took matters into their own hands and gathered to catch up before Snooki headed to L.A. to begin preparing to compete on Dancing With the Stars, which premieres tonight, September 16.

So who showed? Sammi Sweetheart and Ronnie Magro, who just returned from their vacation to Mexico! They posed in a super cute Instagram pic with Snooks, who said, “With my besties!! Thanks for coming boos!!” How sweet!

Snooki and Sammi both look as beautiful as ever… and we forgot how tiny Snooki looks in comparison to Sammi (and basically everyone else). And to add to the fun, it seems Ronnie’s fly is undone — oops! Guess Ron forgot to XYZ.

We can’t believe how much our meatballs have changed since the first time we met them in their Seaside home. And if that’s not enough of a throwback for you, check out these pics of the cast in their teenage days — how precious is Pauly D on his motorbike?

Are you glad Snooki, Sammi, and Ronnie got to reunite before Snooks left to dance her heart out? Sound off below!
