A Toke-n of My Love

[xyz-ips snippet=”Seth-Godin-Message”]


I can just hear my mom calling me after I post this. “Oh, Joanna,” she’ll say. “You really had to put that on the internet?” I’ll be able to hear her shaking her head over the phone. “Where is my lady?”

So, let me be completely clear– if for nothing other than the sake of my long-suffering, patient, loving mother– I am not a pothead. In fact, I’ve never even seen weed other than in DARE class in fifth grade. (If you couldn’t tell from all of my other posts, I’m a really squeaky clean kind of gal. That might be to my detriment,  but I am who I am.)

However, this box earned every word of it’s title. February was an exceptionally busy month, so for this box– a box full of only baked and homemade goods, I had to wake up at 5 AM and make them before I went to work.

Yes, to make this box up, I literally would wake and bake.

These are the munchies (harhar) I woke and baked (boked?): 

I like waking up and getting things done; it makes it even more worthwhile when I know that John will be able to wake up and eat!

  1. Hi! New follower from the Walkabout. That’s such a cute idea. I would just stay up really late and then go to the Post Office when I got bored at work, haha.

  2. I didn’t even think about weed when I say “wake & bake” as I often wake up early to get some goodies in the oven before work! Looks yum!

  3. I love this so cool! :) I’m a new follower from the Walkabout. :)

  4. I have to say I’m jealous! My man is on a sub and sometimes packages don’t reach them until they get home. I sent him a hole package of dates letters to open on specific holidays and whatnot, but I pretty much have to content myself with emails.

    1. Natasha, I was just thinking the other day about how much respect I have for sub SO’s. I can’t imagine! You are one strong lady!

  5. this is so great! Let me say I’m exactly like you…and I’m pretty sure my mom would have been like, Rhe, what are you doing you silly girl. I’ve kinda been known as a goodie goodie…”you drive like a grandma” was often teased in my general direction, LOL. I’m pinning this idea to the Homefront United Board so look for it girl..its a super great idea!

  6. Your boxes are so nicely put together and I love the ideas!! It makes my ones look all thrown together :)

    1. Thanks, Kym! I was just saying the other day to someone, the decorations and things are more for me than for John. It gives me something happy to think about!

  7. Alright. I am having a blast following you over here. I love your themes. And I love that you can hear your mother shaking her head over the phone. I hear my mother do that a lot. I’m pretty sure she has her hand covering her face too when she’s shaking her head.

    1. I’m so glad that you enjoy my blog! (I just checked out yours… I think we’d be friends in real life! :-) ) It’s so hard to write and be funny, and sometimes I’m afraid I miss the mark and just come off sounding super sad and lame…

  8. Hey! Thanks for the follow =) my first one!! And of course I followed back! Thanks also for the invite to your deployment goals page. Love it!

    I love this care package. I just posted today that I wanted to do more baked goods 1 because I love baking 2 because homemade is wayyy better and 3 because store bought is expennnnsive yo. (Yes I added a yo in there lol)
