    Smile Carepackage Numero Dos.

    Advertisements
    And it didn't take me four hours this time

    I decided last minute I was going to just send the next package, non-themed, and do my pirate one next month when I have more room in the box

    and holy cow, I went to UPS to get it shipped... 18.00 a box I was in a hurry, so I couldn't make it to the post office before work, and it would have been closed by the time I got out of work.


    The Goods.



    He doesn't wear boxers, but I figured he'd get a little kick out of these:


    the finished product.


    I forgot to take a picture of the bottom of the box. It's an off white colored paper, like the flaps, with a blue square, and it's got some of the lyrics from "Lucky" by Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat, and I made a little boat with construction paper, with a sunny sky, birds, and water around the writting.

    the flaps are my siggy quote, dividing into four parts.

    I also added a shirt I work to bed a bunch (put it in a zip lock during the day, took it out at night)

    It's boring, but I had limited time

    total time: less than an hour.

    then I had to rush to work... my hair looked great today, by the end of rushing to do all that... it was put up... and a puffy mess

    I also almost dyed of thirst because I got to work at 3.30, went to send the box, then as soon as I got back to work I had kids

    be cool.

    I'm sure he'll love it! My care packages are always boring, but DH is a typical guy and doesn't care about all the fancy decorations... he just wants some damn beef jerky.

    The flag is from a man at walmart. He was giving out flags and collecting charity. He stopped me and asked why I was wearing Dogtags, when I told him my fiancee was deployed and he said he just got back 3 months ago from Iraq, and to give the flag to him, and tell him good luck and god bless

    HAHA. I'm also on my second care package. Apparently G said everyone made fun of him for his first one cause I only sent him stuff he left behind and asked for, and made it to go out ASAP, and didnt care how it looked or anything. So they told him I didn't love him. My second package was much better, and now the third one is almost done
