Wedding Countdown Surprises

In 2005 my friends Kristin and Ryan got married. They got married right after college graduation (Ryan had already been teaching for a year). Kristin asked me to stand up in her wedding during our junior year and we spent senior year working on wedding projects. Well...she did. I helped with a lot of them though! We had fun sitting at our apartment stamping and folding paper and tissues and other cute ideas she thought of. I was so excited to help with the wedding! Although now....looking back...I think I could have been a better bridesmaid, but what did I know???

Fast forward to July 10, 2009. I got a package in the mail from Kristin. It was a cute "live love laugh" sign for my house with a note about it being out minus one year anniversary. So sweet! And it also included a note about how when they were getting married, I found a little gift or card for her in the months leading up to the wedding. I had COMPLETELY forgotten that I had done that! She said she didn't and has been waiting to do this for me because it meant so much to her.

Have I ever mentioned that I love my friends?

So I have received a cute little gift for the last 4 months (July, August, September, October) either in the mail or brought to me when we have seen each other on the 10th. It is such a fun surprise!

I know she is reading this....and I don't expect it EVERY month! Don't worry! I have been completely surprised every time it has happened. Swear! =)

My fun surprises so far...
1. "Live Love Laugh" sign
2. Cute magnet with a risque phrase about wine drinkers
3. "I Do" rhinestones for the bottom of my wedding shoes
4. An apron with an "H" on it for my new married name
I thought it was about time to post about my fun surprises and my wonderful friend.
