    My situation is a little than most. My husband is currently deployed in Iraq right now and our 1 year anniversary is coming up on July 6th. I can't buy him something because he's leaving Iraq on the 14th and it takes 2 weeks for things to get from America to Iraq so he wouldn't get it on time. I want to make him something really special that can be sent to him via internet. Do any of you have any ideas on what I can do that's convenient but still capture the special meaning of the occasion? Any advice would help greatly!!

    Well since you are limited to the internet, there's very few things you can actually send.  My suggestion would be to pose for some sexy pictures at a place that does a really nice job and send an attachment.  I'm sure that would make his day.

      Just make sure you tell him to open the pictures when he is alone.  Unless, of course, you want all of his buddies hooting and hollering.

        I'm literally dying laughing over here. The last thing I want is for his battle buddies to see me that way!! Especially when I see them a lot when they're home and that would make everything very awkward. I don't think I'm going to do the picture thing lol.

    God bless you and you husband for your sacrifices... maybe if you get enough replies, you can send a bunch of "congratulations and good wishes" from all of us here.
    Anniversaries, holidays and birthdays can be tough in these circumstances. May he stay safe and sound, so you can make a double celebrations at the next opportunity.

      I think he'd really like that. He likes feeling appreciated lol. Yes, they are tough. We have yet to spend a major holiday together since we've been married because of this deployment. But hopefully God will bring him home safe in two weeks so that we can spend everyday forth together smile

      Oh and your idea was completely great! I will definitely include this in his present. I have about 6 days to get as many comments as I can. Thanks so much for your advice!
