Happy Anniversary~ have a snack jar

We got married on spring break my freshman year of college. 

Mid-terms Friday, wedding Saturday, boarded a plan to the Caribbean at 6 a.m. the next day, got home the following Sunday at midnight, and back to school at 8 a.m.  I got A's on my midterms too. Cra-ZY. 

Know what's crazier? Jarrod and I celebrated our 11th anniversary last Friday. 


Appetizers, a movie, dinner out, dessert at home. Very exciting stuff. 

If we're not careful, on our next anniversary we will be having the early-bird special at Denny's. 

But that's how we roll, and we like it. 

We kept the gifts simple: He bought me orchids for the bathroom and promised to keep them alive, I gave him food. Everybody's happy. I love this idea for an easy and consumable gift that I got from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar a while back. 

I made my labels in Photoshop and then cut them out, but Cheri's tutorial has instructions for how to do it with simple snapshots and scrapbook paper. 

See how I tricked him into displaying family photos at work? Every time he eats a sour-patch kid, he can think of us. C'mon, everybody say it together.... Awwwwwwwwwwww. 


  1. What an awesome gift idea!!!! Thanks for sharing it!


  2. Absolutely cute idea with the candy and jars! You know Jarrod will smile every time. :) Happy Anniversary and wishing you many, many more!

  3. Happy anniversary! Only 2 years behind us and I'm married to a 41 year old - wow! :-)

  4. Happy Anniversary!! We hit 11 in July! :)


I adore reading your comments; they bring sunshine to my day. Thanks for reading!
