Jumbo Smarties!

Have you ever seen these JUMBO Smarties?

My husband loves Smarties, so I saved these up for a special occasion... (hello, hubby doesn't get jumbo smarties for any old reason... he's gotta work for it!)

I thought his White Coat Ceremony, a Dental School milestone, would be an acceptable occasion to surprise with these jumbo sweets. I just wanted to show him in a simple way that I was proud of him.

So, here's what I did:

You can buy one roll of jumbo smarties HERE for $1.29 or check around your local stores.

You could use this simple idea for any occasion where your hunny has achieved something to be recognized:

*an undergrad test
*an "A" on a tough paper
*an certification exam for work
*after writing a dissertation
*after receiving a pay raise or promotion
*when he/she helped you with something you didn't know
*etc. etc.

Although I can't buy you the Jumbo Smarties, I can provide these FREE printable notecards. (You know, you could always tie a bunch of regular-sized smarties together and get almost-the-same-effect).

You can pick up my freebie HERE. (Note: This is a zipped file. You must extract before accessing the files.)

In case you're interested, here's me and hubby at his White Coat Ceremony (I'm beaming with pride!)...

Great idea! Congrats on the white coat- my hubby still has one whole year of dental school left.

nice idea :) I always forget that those are what Smarties are in the states, we call them rockets here and Smarties are like m&m's but way better!

Sweet idea! My husband loves Smarties too and I was super excited to find the jumbo ones which I always put in his Christmas stocking each year. I always end up eating the white ones though, so once he opens them up, he knows they're vulnerable!

Great picture of you and your husband! Great blog too - it's in my blogroll and I often mention it on our weekly marriage ministry calls.

Fab ideas!

I have a question for you, that has nothing to do with this post. often times my sister will spur of the moment show up and tell us if we want to we can leave and she will stay with the kids. do you have any ideas of something fun we could do together that wouldn't cost much or take too long or much preparation seeing how we don't get much of a warning.

I am using your "relaxing bath" post for ideas to create year-end gifts for my coworkers (teachers).
I scrolled down and found this post..SO cute to use for the end of the year student gifts! I'm going to try think of a cute little phrase that's good for saying good bye and good luck next year for the little smarties!
