Ok I have to bragg. I was asked to do all of Shiloh's wedding flowers. They turned out SO BEAUTIFUL. I was really proud. My little hobby started with my wedding - I helped with my flowers and that was my first experiance with floral arrangements. Then helped with my sister Carly ( sister in-law)and Brian's wedding. Then did my other Sister Linley's wedding. Then a friend from work. Then flew solo with Shiloh's wedding. Her colors purple and yellow looked great together, especailly against the white and black dress of the wedding. Although, finding the yellow roses was almost a bust. We ( Lisa, linley and I) went out for about 3 hours (around 11am) on Thursday for flowers. We gathered all of them but the Yellow roses - the only roses really used inthe arrangements. WHY could we not find these roses? Well it was a busy weekend for weddings, homecoming and the biggest reason. The shipment of roses that were to be delivered to the floral stores were stuck on trucks FROZEN! Yes, frozen... seriously. You've got to be kidding. So after visisting almost every store and floral shop I finally found the last 5 dozen ( possibly) yellow roses in all of Spokane at a Safeway on the South hill. So I asked the lady to hold 3 dozen and I hurridly drove there and purchased two dozen roses! Yes and by 10pm I was done and happy! Packed up the kids, who had a wonderful day of no naps and playing with cousins and went home. I don't think I had put the car in reverse and they were out!
