I'm in charge of decorations tomorrow for Standard's Night at the church. I got very specific instructions on what decorations to get. For example: I was told to get black and white balloons. I said, "OK I will just get a dozen and we can have two balloon bouquets," to which I was answered, "No I like odd numbers, so do 5 and 5... 3 white and 2 black in one, and 3 black and 2 white in another." And I needed to get black, circular confetti. I searched the party store and even asked an employee to help me. All I found were black circles mixed with silver and red circles. I would've just left them as is, but with the specific-ness of the previous request, I decided to waste an hour of my time to separate the tiny pieces of black circle confetti from the rest of the pack. Oh yeah, and I bought two packs. Awesome.

You're so talented, Mary.

That shirt you're wearing looks really familiar.

Hey, so does that smirk!

Oh Mary, you're definitely going to get extra blessings for that.

I think I might have snorted.

Jared was in charge of the plates and napkins and you know the instructions must have been specific because he verified with me 3 times that I get black and white plates and black and white napkins. I really wanted to find some checker board plates, but alas.

Ha ha ha! I think it is funny! She definitely knows how she wants things, but I think that is what makes her so good at what she does! :)
