Buttons!


Buttons!
This morning, my DH thought he'd go for a short little run~ since he had to be back in time for Grandson's Birthday party. Now, I was expecting a Papertrey package, and he knew that. If the slip is in the mailbox, we have to wait until the next day to get the package (or chase the car down that is delivering the mail). On Saturday, the PO is open for about an hour and a half. I expected the slip to be in the box on Monday, he'd get it for me on Tuesday, then I'd have it to play with on Tuesday afternoon when I got up from working a string of night shifts.
So, off he goes this morning, and comes back an hour and a half and 6 miles later... with my box! He found the slip in the box dated Friday (we never went to the mailbox on Friday!), hightailed it running to the PO, made it in time, then ran home carrying the box in his hands!
These are the sweetest buttons brought to me by the sweetest man you have ever met.
PS: They are in the 'small' Making Memories jars. I saw them at Michaels this afternoon, $9.99 for 6 jars. Kinda pricey, but I'm getting another set or two to stash so I will have plenty as the buttons come!

I am so jealous!! They look beautiful in those jars! I was thinking of doing the same thing (buying a bunch to save for coming button colors) :D But I haven't put in an order yet... :-(

Hey Beth,
Sounds like you've got yourself a very "enabling" kinda guy there--better hold on to him ;-)
