You can never have too many flip flops

I don’t know where the last two weeks went.  Things have been somewhat crazy.  Yet, it doesn’t feel like I’ve done much.  Two weekends ago is when my dad and I traveled 2,500 miles in a matter of 40 hours.  Last weekend was filled with a Garden walk and a bridal shower.  Honestly, bridal showers are always so boring, but this one was actually fun!  We spent time painting flower pots, decorating flip flops, and making chocolate covered pretzels.  This wedding is in August, and the reception is on a boat.  Hence, flip flops!

Here’s the bride to be (my cousin), with our grandmother.

My sister and I with her.

We had a really good time, and decorating those flip flops was such a good idea, I will probably make some more eventually.

    Finally, a bridal shower where someone has a good time! Good for you. And good luck making more flip-flops.

    And the reception is on a boat? That’s my dream! Have fun!

    What a great shower concept… if I knew they’d be fun, I’d look forward to going to showers!

    So tell me about the flip flops! How did the host decide what sizes to buy?

    lo, it was a really great idea…and made the shower fun! The host just purchased a whole array of cheap flip flops, ranging from small to extra large. She only had black and white available. I know most of the time those flip flops aren’t that comfortable, but once you have the wrap on, they are surprisingly comfortable. You just begin at one end and wrap, when you get to the center, just move to the other side and finish wrapping, then just tie it off! It’s so easy!
