Next item on the list of fun activites was a bridal shower for Katie's roomate Kate which I helped with the food for. The reason I was so excited for this was I made my first attempt at making "cute" cupcakes. They turned out pretty well and the recipes I used for the actual cake were pretty much to die for. The shower was so cute. It was a garden tea party. Katie and her roommate Melissa did a great job!
Next fun fling! Jer planned a surprise date for Saturday afternoon/evening for me. He 'tricked' me into cleaning the house with him and then he blind-folded me and put me in the car. We drove all the way to the canyon and when he took my blindfold off, I realized there were two of our new friends, Eric and Courtney from our ward sitting in the back of the car! Good thing I didn't say anything embarrassing! Our other friends Carly and Chase met up with us and we 'hiked' (although it was really kind of just a walk) up to bridal veil falls and stood in the mist for a bit. We then went to Eric's parents house to swim and have a BBQ. After that, we went back to our place in Orem and played Nertz with all of us plus Callista and Ben for about two hours and then went to Karate Kid at the dollar theater! It was such a fun day! We got to spend time with all of our friends and do lots of fun and inexpensive things.
