What are sisters for?
Saturday was my little sister's first and last Prom. I was SO excited that she got to go to her Senior Prom before she graduates. I did her hair and make-up which was so fun for me. When her date arrived she suddenly realized she had forgotten to pick up the boutonniere for her date. She felt so bad! I had to think fast, so I ran barefoot over to my parent's neighbor's house. Their front yard was full of fresh tulips and other spring flowers. The neighbors were already outside in their backyard doing yard work. I didn't grow up in the house my parents currently live in, so I'm sure they had no idea who I was. They had their backs turned to me so I said "Hi" really loud and I think I startled them. "I'm Becca's sister, she forgot a boutonniere for her dance....could I maybe pick a flower from your yard?" They were SO nice considering I was a total stranger asking if I could pick one of their flowers! They told me to pick the best flower I could find. I picked a cute little tulip and ran back over to my parent's house. My mom was frantically searching the house for a pin. I ended up finding a safety pin and figured I could make it work. So I stood on my tip toes to reach her dates vest and did the very best job I could to pin the homemade boutonniere on with a safety pin! I told him we found a "special" boutonniere for him. I was laughing so hard once I got the thing pinned on because it truly was the most "special" boutonniere I have ever seen. A little embarrasing for my sister, but...what are older sisters for?
