my crazy fun, SUPER busy, such a miracle weekend...

i'll start my story on friday morning. it was the homecoming dance at the 2 local high schools this weekend, & since i own a flower shop there was a lot of flower making going on. but my girl friends & i had planned a girls trip a little while ago, so i was working late the night before so that i could bail right at 5 to head to P.C. (sorry, no pics from the girls night.  i forgot my camera.  that what happens when i don't drive.  SO SAD!)

we had a total blast shopping, eating really great food & staying up way too late talking about EvEryThiNg.

we left P.C. to head up to our cabin at Sundance at about 11 pm. when we got there it was very dark & i couldn't find the keys. i set my bag down to go through it & eventually found them in the car. we got inside, hung out & talked until way too late. kristin couldn't spend the night, so she left at like 3 am to head home. we told her to text us to let us know that she got home safe.(she had to drive down the canyon, up 8th north, get on the freeway & then on the city streets to get home-- this is relevant. i promise) so we get a text at like 4 something telling us she got home ok, but when she got there & was walking around her car to go inside, she saw something black on her bumper of her car. it was my wallet!!! 

  i had set it down on her car when i was looking for the keys & it had stayed on her bumper the WHOLE way home.  as my friend Kes says "my life is in my wallet."  i really keep everything in it & would die with out it.  SuCh a mIrAclE!!!!

After i got home on saturday, i went grocery shopping to get the stuff for these rolls.
 
these darling friends of ours were blessing there beautiful twins & asked if i would bring the rolls.  darin LOVES my rolls.  that is an understatement!  i made 16 1/2 dozen & they were delicious.  as well as everything else that people brought including this salad... thanks Nakole!!!! 
 
before we went to the blessing we had the primary program in our ward.  i had made these missionary tags & put all the kids names on them.

these tags measure 3 1/2 in. x 2 1/4 in.  to add text, use a photo editing program, i used photoshop.  also i dragged dozens onto a larger file & then added the names.

{the kids looked so sweet in these!!}
i cut them & they fit in the Avery brand pin on name tag holders.




{candy bar scriptures}

i also made these mini candy bar scriptures for our little missionaries to hand out.  they are really easy & really fun.  i'll do a how-to later in the week. 

overall, the weekend was just as the title states... GREAT!!!  hope you alls were just as good.

Ok, first thing...wallet - amazing! Second, the name tags turned out so cute! Aubrey loved wearing hers. Third, I showed EVERYONE the scripture candies, so impressed. You are way to creative! Fourth, I want to try your rolls.

Kacy said...

You are truely amazing. Thanks so much for the WONDERFUL rolls. You need to knock of being so creative and Martha Stewartish. You're going to give her a run for her $$$$. I love ya.

Sha said...

That's such a good idea. I might use the candy bar scriptures for my 14-15 year old class (yeah, they act like they are 5 anyway.) ;^)

I didn't know that Kacy had twins!?! Tell her congrats for me. They are darling.

Tiff said...

I got so tired just reading that - you have way to much energy where can I get some of that at? Do you sell it at your store?

Whitney said...

How the heck did your wallet stay on the bumper?? You are so lucky. That is amazing. I love the candy bar scriptures...did you think of that? Man, I wish I had an ounce of your creativity. About the baby girl clothes, Avi is pretty much the best dressed girl that I know so that would be AWESOME! Unless you want to save it for your next kid....:).

Debi said...

Church members have been counseled to not have children wear pretend missionary name tags. (Friend, October 1999)

Demarcus Family said...

I would love the file for these awesome name tags! We are planning a missionary activity for the YW and YM soon. If you have the file would you be willing to share? dtdemarcus@yahoo.com

Aleshia said...
