An Easy Breezy Gift Idea!

Are you looking for an easy yet creative gift idea for a relative or co-worker? Well look no further!! I have an easy breezy gift idea that won’t hurt your pocket ;0). I found the cutest yet unique gift boxes at Dollar Tree and made a stunning gift!! Inside the gift box, I wrapped a beautiful coffee mug and placed a specialty coffee drink mix. (You can use anything from coffee to tea…even splurge if you want!). Once all contents were secured in the box, I tied it with a nice ribbon ;0). Try this gift idea…it will definitely be a pleaser!! ;0)

Brody’s Wednesday Letter: LMAO

Dear Mom,

I know I haven’t written you in a while. That is because you and dad finally got your act together and realized you have a 3yr old toddler to take care of!! But anyway, tell dad thanks for the new bone he gave me last week. I would tell him myself but after walking into the bathroom while he is shaving with just socks and Nike flip flops is not what’s up!!! I’m just sayin!!!

Paws Truly,
