Can you believe we’re already in our third week of the Care Package Flashback series? I wish the actual deployment had flown by this quickly!
We’re taking a look back at possibly one of my favorite care packages of the deployment, the Big Bang-themed care package. A and I watch the show pretty regularly and it’s full of such great lines that I knew I was going to use this idea as soon as possible.
I did some brainstorming about which items I would like to include, taking into account A’s requests, and then tried to refine that list based on Big Bang quotes found here. Seriously, this site was a care package saver!
Then each item got wrapped in brown butcher paper, which I will definitely use in future care packages and the corresponding quote was written on the paper. A loved it! The jokes made him laugh and he said unwrapping everything made it feel like Christmas. That made all the time I spent fending off the dogs and picking T’s hair off the tape worth it.
Some things that were included: beef jerky, granola bars, magazines and nuts.
