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.|
