Mum's The Word

Homecoming time is here and that means mum time. Jordan was actually born on Homecoming night, almost 14 years ago.....WOW! Anyway, Jordan informs me that he is going to need a mum this year. YES, that means he is "taking" someone. By "taking" someone, I mean riding together in mom's minivan. You can't get much cooler than that! He doesn't actually have a g-friend. He's going with a "friend" that use to be his g-friend. That's all I'll say about any of that cause I don't feel like talking or thinking about it right now, and I'm sure it's TMI as far as he's concerned also.

Being the "Frugal Francis" that I am, I decide that I'll just make the mum. Seriously, to get a decent mum these days, you're looking at $60.00 - $75.00....SERIOUSLY! Oh, and I agreed to make Tyler's too. Do I have any mum-making experience? Ummm NO. Am I sometimes a little over-confident in my abilities? Ummm DEFINITELY!

So, I headed to Michaels and stocked up on ribbons and trinkets and did a little (a lot) of gluing and stapling, and let the mum-magic happen.

Now, let's hope that they don't fall apart before, during, or after the game!

I'm pretty sure congratulations are in order for this project, but I'm so ignorant about these "mums." you'll have to tell me what they're for sometime...
