If you have been around here long, you know that I grew up in Missouri and that I come from a family full of boys. We moved to Missouri when I was four and my Dad took a job as an artist at Hallmark cards. I have four younger brothers and brother number 2, Cody, is currently serving a mission for our church in Taiwan. He and I got pretty close before he left- he even worked for us for a while, but honestly I have been the worst sister when it comes to writing him. I email him my InstaFriday post every week and send along an extra line or two, but I haven't even mailed him a single real piece of mail! So guess who's birthday is at the end of the month? I'm thinking I should step up my game at least for his birthday, so last week I ran to Walmart to get him the perfect birthday card. (It had to be a Hallmark card- it is definitely WRONG in our family to buy anything else. Why would you?)

I purposefully went card shopping without the toddlers and holy cow is reading cards enjoyable without two kiddos tearing apart the aisle! I found a whole end cap of religious humor cards which were fun to peruse for him and then I had a ball playing with all of the cards that move (!?!) and sing. You can see my whole trip here

One reason I haven't mailed him anything yet is that is costs a lot to mail even the smallest of items, so finding him just the right card is the perfect way to send a lot of love in a lightweight package. Normally I don't even bother checking out the fancy/more expensive cards, but for this occasion money was no object. After I found him a few cards to consider, I looked at the cheaper cards in the Fresh Ink section to stock up on for other birthdays and holidays coming up.

Like I said there aren't a lot of things I can send him or that he needs, but I grabbed him some small items like new Sharpie pens and his favorite candy to go with his card. Confetti always makes things feel more festive!

So now I need your help. I grabbed three cards that I think he would enjoy, but need to narrow it down to one. Which card should I send him? I made a fancy (or not so fancy) little video so that you can hear and see the cards. I know I'm a vlogging rookie, but it was fun to try out. You can see the cards and take the survey below.

  2. I like the first one the best, but the fortune cookie is a close second. I am with you on only buying Hallmark cards! Why would you buy anything else? My husband is getting used to that and I'm training him to buy Hallmark only as well.
