Love You To Pieces {One month anniversary}

First things first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my mom today! We celebrated yesterday since her birthday and Father's Day were so close this year.

On June 5, J and I had our one month anniversary. It seems weird to say considering we're going on 6 years together, but anywho...

If you know me you know I love a good reason to celebrate and this little ole one month anniversary was no different. I was actually out of town for work on the 5th so I planned a little suprise for J. I didn't want to do anything big or expensive, remember June is the month of cleansing. I decided to make J a little puzzle and each piece would be attached to a little gift. I then hid the gifts around the house for him to find throughout the day.

I started off by creating this little note in Pages for all you Mac users or you could also use Microsoft Word. Make sure it takes up the entire page.

I cut up the paper into 10 different pieces. There was no method to my cutting. I tried to do a mixture of curvy and straight lines.

I collected my goodies and taped a puzzle piece to each one. I hid them around the house after J went to bed.
For the goodies I used:
-Hershey bar
-Coupon to see Men in Black 3
-Coupon for a Free Grass Mow
-Red Bull
-Casey's gift card (Saturdays are Casey'd donut days)
-Coupon for a massage

I tried to get things he could use/eat all throughout they day. For example I put the donut one in the kitchen so he could eat them in the morning for breakfast and the funyuns in the pantry so he could have a snack in the afternoon.

Even though it was simple and easy to do, it's nice to take time out of our everyday routine to do something special.

What fun and in-expensive things have you done for your loved one?
