Care Package #16: Wild About You

My inspiration for this box- Zebra Cakes!  Those processed, sugary, delicious cakes! YUMMMM
 I decorated with scrapbook paper, jungle animal stickers, and a totally random picture of Daniel and I eating Taco Bell.  That's pretty wild...right?
 Zebra Cakes
WILD rice soup
Annie's taco mac and cheese
Wild animal fruit snacks
Cheddar crackers
Zone bars
Animal Cookies
E-Card tissues and mug
(not wild but very funny)

Care Package #15: Like a Fat Kid Loves Cake

Although my man has become quite the chef for himself, he still hasn't ventured to make any baked goods.  I figured I'd cure his sweet tooth with a box filled with homemade goodies. What's not to love!
I came up with decorating the box with the quote:
"I love you like a fat kid loves cake"
While my mom thought it was offensive, I thought it was hilarious and completely appropriate!
His homemade goodies included:
Chocolate cake
Chocolate frosting (not homemade)
Monkey bread
Candy cookies
 For the most part, everything traveled pretty well.  He said the monkey bread was a bit hard but still delicious.  And he was in love with the candy cookies (the secret: a package of instant vanilla pudding in the batter). 

Care Package #14: Back from the Field

Things have become pretty crazy around here!  I'm now student teaching, working, planning a wedding, and continuing to send my man care packages (even though I haven't been posting them).  So today is the day that I finally post his packages!

Daniel was out in the field for around a month and during that month, he couldn't receive any packages.  When he was a week away from returning to base I send him a "Welcome Back" package that hopefully would help him get back into the swing of things on base. 
I added some things that may help him relax and stay healthy after a LOONNGGG month away 

Cough drops
Wet wipes
Chap stick
Coconut water
A couple movies
Skillet sauce
Rice sides
Jerky chew
Tomato soup
Homemade brownies

We are both very happy he is back on base and back to his "normal" life.
