It's been an exciting week with Jeff out of town.
On 2 different days, we had brown cardboard boxes delivered to our house. One was expected, one was a surprise, and both contained exciting things!
First, we ordered Teagan's backpack and lunch box for school. We decided to make an investment in something "grown up" with the intention that it lasts for a few years. Teagan was very excited to help pick out colors and we even splurged and had her initials and a butterfly embroidered on each bag. She chose the blue for the backpack and the coordinating style in pink for the lunchbox. I love how they hook together!
He and I have an ongoing conversation about giving flowers to someone. I love getting flowers- especially at work. It's a fun way to brighten up the office and it leaves smiles on people's faces. Jeff hates giving flowers because you enjoy them for a few days, they die, you throw them away. Waste of money.
He must have happened upon a great deal. According to the packing slip, he spent about what he would have on having a nice bouquet delivered. But I have something that is going to last a long time, bring many smiles, and much laughter. Best of all, I can now share something with my kids that my mom shared with me. Something she and I laughed over together many times. Something that I am very excited about and just so pleased that he thought of me.
Have you had any fun surprises lately? Are you a Lucy fan? I must know what your favorite episodes are!! Do you do special things for the people you love?
And anyone want to send me flowers?
