The '7 Ingredients to a Happy Marriage' Wedding Shower Gift

I've been meaning to post this for awhile..

If you're a regular follower of my blog, you know that I had my tea party wedding shower last month--and it was wonderful! Brandon and I received so many thoughtful gifts that we will use for years to come.

One of those gifts gave me a good chuckle.

My dear friend/bridesmaid Abby made me a "7 Ingredients to a Happy Marriage" kit. She said the idea came to her when she was thinking about what to get--she knew I loved to cook so she began to think about 'ingredients,' which led to ingredients for a happy marriage. Abby has been married for three months now and these are a few of the tricks she's picked up so far.

Yellow gloves--to clean up terrible boy messes.
Air freshener--the quick fix to get rid of boy scent.
Ear plugs--for when you can no longer listen to 'blah, blah, blah'
Advil PM--for the nights you "have a headache" and must go to sleep.
Squirt Bottle--a creative way to say "no" or "put that down". 
Midol--this one was a gift for Brandon..
And finally, Wine and wine glasses--for spending time together. Always remember to love, laugh, cry and pray together.

Abby wrote all of the ingredients and the reason for them on a card. She ended it by saying "With these ingredients, you two will have no problems for years to come."

Oh, I love this girl.
The gift is adorable and everyone at the shower got a big kick out of it. You can personalize/customize it for the couple you're giving it to--or just use Abby's idea!

Party, Party, I like to Party
