    Big Grin just sent out his 1st care pkg EVER

    Advertisements
    I didn't take any pics, but here's the rundown on what I sent in the flat rate box:

    My favorite rosary
    A crucifix that he can hang
    A metal heart shaped trinket that signifies he has my heart with him
    Neutrogena 100+ SPF face lotion
    a small bottle of my perfume
    home made cookies wrapped in a special bag that prevents heat from coming in
    mens daily vitamins
    2 magazines (1 is video game stuff that i dont understand, the other is a comedy/science/entertainment mag)
    3 books (2 about God, 1 called 90 Minutes in Heaven)
    75 index cards with a lipstick kiss on each one. that way he gets a kiss in the morning before he goes to work, one when he gets home, and one before he goes to bed (I'm planning on sending him 75 per care package, so he doesn't have to 'reuse" the same kiss twice)
    starbucks thermo cup
    starbucks instant coffee
    an unmentionable
    a romantic card in spanish that he will need to translate (only i speak spanish, he is trying to learn)

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that's it i cant wait for mi amor to get it i even got the delivery confirmation so that i will know when its at the base LOL (excited much? )

    wow sounds wonderful! im about to send my first one too. i made a 4th of july/fathers day package. me and dd painted it up. we made the bottom red and blue, the sides had a heart, a star, a smily face and finger scribbles. the flaps had "we love you" "we miss you" "happy fathers day" and "happy 4th of july". i put a tshirt, 2 belt buckls, 1 belt, a dvd of us and a full 4th of july dinner: spam, vienna sausages, cheese in a can, crackers, salt and vinegar chips, can corn, baked beans, bbq sauce, salt, pepper, ketchup, watermellon jello and kool aid singles. i even included a 4 place setting of paper plates, bowls and silverware and an empty bottle for the kool aid! haha its kinda cute. i think next im doing "breakfast in bed" which will be assorted breakfast drinks like tea and coffee and oatmeal, ceral, breakfast bars etc...

    the pharmacist at walgreens gave it to me. she served in the army, and she told me that the bag would prevent the extreme temperatures from penetrating into melt the cookies. she gave it to me for free, so if you go to your nearest walgreens, go to the pharmacy and ask them if they can spare any of the bags that they transport insulin in. they are kinda metal on the outside and have bubble wrap on the inside. im using this as a test run. if it makes it there, he's getting the real deal chocolate next time.

    also, to the poster with the 4th of july and fathers day idea...that was soooooooooo sweet! he'll love it
