When is it ok to throw away a gift? 4 months
(note to self, return 7 foot long red and gold striped scarf you had planned on giving to rebecca in july..)

I pull the sweatshirt out and there it is...My FI's picture enlarged covering the entire front of the sweatshirt....and in puffy paint it says 'He's all mine!'! hahahahahahaha I am just thankful that they weren't there when we opened the gifts...cuz I laughed soooooo hard. Thought it was a prank almost....til I opened box two....once again....a beautiful sweatshirt in a gorgeous color. This time, the enlarged photo was a picture of the three of us (FI, Myself and my soon to be step daughter) with writing in puffy paint.
I have them both in a drawer.....waiting the appropriate time that I can maybe turn them into throw pillows or something. My step daughter teases me weekly still asking when I'm gonna wear them!!! I don't know if I could wear them around the house without laughing the entire time!
I just love you Abbie!!!! By the way... when is your shower, I have a gift I need to send you.
