I have 6 sisters-in-law and they are all excellent, but my husband and his oldest sister have always been especially close. She is very good to our family (how good is a whole other post or two).
She is a CPA and as we all know April 15 is Tax Day - so April is a very busy and stressful month for her.
She is always doing something nice for our family and I wanted to return the favor. Since it is such a hard month I decided on a fruit basket. I was afraid that with all the business she might be tempted to skip lunch or just forget to take it. I know that she is health conscience so I wanted a healthy option.
I also know that women in general also
need like need chocolate (so I had to put some in the basket too).
I bought all the stuff myself and Champ put it together for me. He did an excellent job. When my DH got home that evening - he asked where I bought it. (When his sis called to say thanks - she asked where we got it too.)
I found some cute bright spring ribbon (lime green with hot pink and darker green polka dots) that I tied onto the basket (both the ribbon and basket were from Hobby Lobby - on sale for 1/2 off) and put hot pink and lime green tissue paper in the bottom of the basket. I washed all fruit so that it would be ready for consumption.
We put a pineapple, red delicious apples, granny smith apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries, Hershey kisses and some trail mix from Good Harvest Bread Co. (which I absolutely love) . All the fruit was from Aldi's at really reasonable prices (tasted great too - I bought some for us to eat when I purchased her fruit).
The next day Rance and I delivered it to her work.
Thanks a lot for all that you do for us Sis. You are a WONDERFUL person and we love you!
