texas traditions: homecoming. part two.
i couldn’t keep away from the craft stores.
‘here’s a coupon! i just wish i’d found it yesterday before i went to hobby lobby!’
-overheard at michaels.
[texas hospitality + obsession with mums = credit card debt]
WHAT WOULD AN EXTREME COUPONER’S MUM LOOK LIKE???
one thing’s for sure, there is no way they’d spend $119.99 when they could buy 100,000 reams of ribbon for 47 cents.
and then as i pretended to be a whiny high schooler making myself a mum, i commented:
‘ohmygod and then when i’m done i’m going to SPRAY IT WITH GLITTER.’
and oh how we giggled.
until, of course, when i came home and googled ‘how to make a homecoming mum’ just to see how crazy people are.
