Apparently I've got skills...

Bouquet making skills. I went to a bridal shower on Wednesday for a friend that is getting married. It was me, 2 of her roommates and a bunch of women she works with or is related to. We were the youngest by at least 30 years. Kind of funny! Anyhwho... we got selected to be the makers of her "bow"quet with all the bows and ribbons from her presents. My 2 friends kindly passed them to me, and so I began. The ladies around us were soo impressed and kept asking me if I had done this before. I replied "no, this is my first time." My friends found the need to tell everyone, "She teaches Home Ec." Like that makes me extra crafty or something. So then at the end of the shower a lady comes up to me and asks me if I teach how to make these bouquets. What? Are you serious!! I replied as nicely as I could without laughing out loud. Maybe I should start a class. Anyone want to sign up?



It doesn't look very good in the picture- I had to add some tacky stuff at the end. But there is a little handle for her to even hold on to. Funny!

p.s. It was me that got the speeding ticket, and I don't expect my "friend" to help pay for it- although it was AT the airport that I got the ticket. But I guess a ticket just adds to the fact that she should pay some for the gas. And still hasn't made any mention of it. In fact she made me drive her to the temple this morning for our Relief Society Birthday celebration. I wanted to go to IKEA after, but SHE didn't have time. I am getting a little tired of her "friendship"...
