Nice Surprises

Colby came home the other day with a terrific surprise.

First, let me say this. Surprises are {for the most part} good. Surprises that come at the end of a long day are great. Surprises that come in the midst of wedding chaos are even better!

I must say that the occasional gift that we receive on any random day excites me. Opening gifts are so much fun. Admit it. You like it, too.

This past week Colby brought home a gift that was wrapped and labeled from a great local gift shop, Jus Do. I mentioned that store in this post. Everything you get from there is totally awesome. I have bought all of my hostess gifts from there and so much more.

Okay….back to the story. Colby brought home the gift. He insisted on opening it for me. It was our very first initial flag. This posed a problem though. I didn’t have a flag pole. I went to a local hardware store to find one and paid $30 for the darn thing. I didn’t open it though because I swore I could find one cheaper. I went to Jus Do, and what did I find? One for $10!


Sorry! I had to take a picture of the package. I haven’t exactly taken it out of the package yet.

There’s an even better part to the story though. Our friends, Dusty and Amber Wilson, who gave us this gift also sent another flag along for us to borrow. It’s a wedding flag! This is really the reason I was in such a hurry to get a flag pole.


Isn’t it cute???? I apologize for the poor picture of it. One should probably take a picture of something like this before it’s on a flag pole flapping in the wind. It’s the best I could do.

  1. SUPER cute!!!!! I can't wait to see it in person. I hope you have someone house sitting during the actual wedding parties and ceremony because with that flag out people are gonna know you're going to be gone and that there are lots of valuable presents inside.
