Congratulations Smarty Pants!!

A couple days ago I was scrambling to think of an idea for a gift for my boyfriend who is graduating with his masters, I had to think fast, get it together and get it in the mail. I usually like to give gifts that are a little different, outside the box, creative and fun. Well, this is what I came up with. I made a card with a cute little owl dressed in graduation cap and gown, with his cute little glasses perched on his nose, beak, whatever...anyway, the card on the outside said "Congratulations" on the inside it said "smarty pants". I bought a pair of boxer shorts and a bag of smarties candies, put it in a box and sent it on it's merry way. I expressed mailed it to make dang good and sure that it got there yesterday before he leaves out of town. He got it just after he had finished taking his last final. Needless to say that he called to say that I had made his day...Yay me, and Yay him.

I'll just add this little bit, to go with the blogger challenge on 2peas. How I met my closet friend. My friend Steph and I have been friends for about 14-15 years and we met because our husbands worked together. I think we hit it off fairly well right from the start, although, I still remember my husband at the time commenting on how good she looked in a bikini.....grrrr. Not her fault, husband could have just kept that comment to himself...........could have kept a lot of things to himself..that's why he's no longer husband! Anyway, Steph and I feel like we are sisters separated at We totally think along the same lines, can look at each other and know what the other is thinking, have a lot of the same likes, dislikes, and can laugh our asses off. We can spend a weekend together scrapping or shopping and not get tired of each other, we can talk everyday, or go a couple weeks without and it's fine. I know that she is there for me in any way she can be, and I would do anything to help is definately good when you have a good friend that you love and can count on.

I would post a pic of me and Steph, but when I went to upload to my computer, it erased EVERY picture on my card.......GRRRRR. Plus you all have to remember that I'm still tryin to figure out how to use the different features and I still haven't gotten the linking thing down yet. But, I will prevail and I will figure this stuff out...I will not give up!!
