Pictures, pictures, pictures!!

Postage gets EXPENSIVE!! Try alternating packages with pictures sent in a card. Have fun with it. I did a funny photo shoot and took goofy pictures of myself, printed them out and made comments on them. You can even pick up the sticker speech bubbles in the scrapbooking section to make yourself or your kids say things in the pictures or just photo shop them onto the pictures before you print.

Candy play on words - Candygram!

Take each candy and attach a note with a reason why you're sending it. You can put them all in a box labeled the reason why I love you or something like that:

  • Nerds: You're such a nerd and always make me smile.
  • Smarties: You're so smart.
  • 100 Grand: You're just so rich (joking of course).
  • Reese's whips: Because you're whipped.
  • Snickers: For the way you snicker at my jokes.
  • Butterfinger: Because you have a nice butt.
  • Sweet Tarts: Because you're so sweet.
  • Hot Tamales: You're so hot!
  • Laffy Taffy: You always makes me laugh.
  • Hershey's Hugs and Kisses: You always give great hugs and kisses.
  • Dum Dums: You love me even when I'm a dum dum.
  • Shockers: The way I feel about you is shocking!
  • Baby Ruth: I love it when you call me baby.
  • Lifesavers: Because you're my lifesaver.
  • Mints: You're worth a mint to me!
  • Reisen: You're my "reisen" for living.
  • Reese's Pieces: Because I love you to pieces.
  • Big Hunk: Because you're my big hunk.

Sexy items for a private care package from wife/gf

Here are some ideas for one of my LYC girls:

I bought some X-rated heart candies (you know the Valentine's conversation hearts that say stuff like "Be Mine" and stuff..yeah, these said some other things...)

I made some chocolate and vanilla "kitties" on a stick with an insinuating little note attached about him eating them. They were wrapped in pink cellophane and tied with red ribbon. It wasn't hot there at the time so it didn't melt. He thought the edible "kitties" were hilarious.

I got some underwear for him and I put on some dark lipstick and I kissed them all over...mostly in THAT area...I put them in a plastic bag with my perfume sprayed on them and a pink notecard with "Guess what I've been thinking about?" on it.

I got him a sleeve for his special alone time and some lube.

Gummy handcuffs with a dirty little story about how we'd use the real thing.

3 or 4 erotic letters in individual envelopes, each scented with my perfume.

Some private pix on CD for his computer.

Red Hots that were in a package labeled something like "Sex Pills" or something like that, can't was funny but I can't remember what the label said.

A pair of my panties in a plastic baggie.

A pillowcase with an iron on of me in a sexy pose so we could still "sleep together" even though we couldn't.

Coupons for dirty deeds he could cash in when he got home. Yes, he's cashed them ALL in by now.

Boobie cookies.

I also took some obscure, hard to identify pix of various body parts and numbered them. If he was able to identify them, he got good, recognizable pix of those parts. It was kind of like a puzzle/game/brain teaser/other part teaser thing

Birthday Ideas

I recently received an email full of birthday ideas! Enjoy!
I’m an avid reader of spousebuzz and came across your link there. My fiancĂ© is deployed to Iraq and I was having a hard time trying to figure out what to send him for his birthday. To help anyone else I thought I would share what I sent….

  • Candles- he was turning 24 so I put 24 in a plastic bag (did not include lighter) I knew his roommate had one, didn’t think you could ship lighters anyways
  • Balloons- he said the guys had a good time blowing them up and playing volleyball, ect. with them
  • Cake- betty crocker makes individual microwaveable cakes- just add water, put in microwave and tada! Comes with caramel or icing.
  • DVD- with me and his friends singing happy birthday to him, and left personal notes on it
  • Wrapped presents- this would vary

I thought about doing a “theme” sending over cups, plates, food, hats, table cloth…. but I thought it might be to much. May be good for someone else though?

Thanks for keeping your blog, what a great idea!

MagicJack in the Military?

Have you heard of the MagicJack? Supposedly, you plug this into your computer that is hooked up to high speed internet and attach a phone line to the plug and you can make unlimited phone calls to the US and Canada. The website even claims that you can use this while traveling or in our case deployments as long as internet is available. The device costs $39 from the website and that include one full year of unlimited service. If you'd like to continue service after the first year it is only $20 per YEAR.

Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Well, that's what I'm wondering. I ran across this device on the LYC forum and then received an email today from a reader that wanted to know if anyone has used this. He has a relative deploying to Kuwait soon and wants to know if anyone has had experience with this overseas.

When I asked my soldier he thought it might use up too much bandwidth, but I'm not sure. And for $40 for the MagicJack and $10 for a cheapo phone it might just be worth a shot.

If anyone has any experience with the MagicJack please leave a comment and help us clear this up! Thanks! Pin It
