I promise, I have made a lot of things that I could have been blogging about every Monday. For some reason, weekly features are always so hard for me to remember! To rectify the problem, I already have some Made it Mondays scheduled, so it will be more consistent. :)
For our anniversary, Scott and I decided that we were going to do handmade gifts. I showed up to The Melting Pot (for free cheese fondue) carrying this box
This is Scott's "bad day box." I got the idea off the internet and my neighbor, who had made one for her husband. It's not exactly the most "handmade" thing- but the gift I wanted to make fell through and this was the next best thing. He was pretty amped by the stuff. I don't think I would normally name everything I got him for fear of sounding like I was bragging or something, but I think that, in this case, the "stuff" describes Scott pretty well.
The tag says: "This is your bad day box. There are lots of fun things in here that will hopefully make your day better and remind you that we love you so much!"
3 Books of Mad Libs
A photo album of his family
Candy (Snickers, Nerds, Blow Pops, Gum, )
A head scratcher
Inspirational book (To Draw Closer to God by Henry B. Eyring)
Inspirational photo book (Go For It!)
Plastic "shooters" (toy guns that shoot balls- one for him and one for me)
In 'n' Out Burger gift card
Nielson's Custard gift card
Cards that I wrote him to remind him that he is doing great
Some things, the head scratcher and books, I had around the house. I think my favorite is the photo album. One thing is for sure, Scott has already used his box- eating one piece of beef jerky at a time and thumbing through all of the things that make him happy. Seems just opening it makes him feel better. And that makes me feel like a million bucks.
