The best part of the day was at Wednesday night bible study, where the girls at church decorated my usual spot with a pink table cloth and confetti and all kinds of pink treats and presents. I felt like crying! They are such special, wonderful friends. They cheer me up like nothing else! And God even ended the day with a gorgeous pink sunset, which I like to think was just for me. (Thank you, Creator!)
Uh, simple was an understatement. It was the worst! The most pitiful attempt at a party I've ever made...poor Ace. I had planned to use this awesome idea from Pinterest for pouring melted frosting onto your cake to make it look like fondant. (Genius!) And then make mini-mallow clouds and paper airplanes coming out of it. Darling, right?
But instead this happened:
Bahaha!! I mean, really?! I couldn't have TRIED to make a worse disaster!! But I totally served it anyway, because cake. And it's good for me to have a nice blow to the ego now and then. :o) I welcome the humility with open arms! The one good thing (and seriously, the only decoration in sight. So. sad.) were these happy little poster board clouds that I cut out and hung above the cake table. They make me really happy! And I hung a paper airplane garland that I'd made for a previous issue of Fresh Style Magazine up in front of them. They looked so cute!
Ace, I'm so sorry, love, I'll make it up to you with an awesome party some other year!
Here's to our failures! And finding humor in humility. :O)
