Default I never really understood your obsession with Brown til now!

I have to admit that I always thought you might be just a little obsessed with stamping when you would post things like... I chased Brown down the street....I bake for the Brown driver... I know Brown driver by his first name...

Now I am one of you!!!! I have an order that should arrive today! Where the heck is it? I've been looking and listening for Brown, and he isn't to be found! What is up with that?? I had a dr. appointment and on my way back I called my kids to see if there was a gift from Brown when they got home from school!! No such luck, grrrr....

Yes, I'm now one of the "Obsessed with Brown" club members! I feel the love!

This morning in Bible study, we were talking about a friend's 3 year old son that waited all afternoon at the door for "Mr. Brown" because he was going to have some rubberbands for the kid. And Mr. Brown never showed. The kid was devestated!

I was pleasantly suprised by My man in brown this afternoon. He doesn't usually pay me a visit until 5-6pm, but today he showed up at 2:30 much to my delight

My husband wishes I got as excited about him as I do the UPS man.

With the season of greed upon us, UPS is working longer and harder. I work in retail receiving and I get a seperate truck at this time of year.

When my Mr. Brown sees that there are packages coming to me at my office from Stampin' Up!, he always makes sure to deliver them before lunch so that we can play with everything during lunch.

HA HA . . . my DH thought I was insane a couple of weeks ago because I made him stop the car in the parking lot of a doctor's office down the road from us because I saw the UPS truck and knew he had my packages (it was 12:30 and we don't get delivery until about 4:30) !!!

My delivery guy even laughed when he came out and I told him that I wanted my packages !!!

Yep, told my Brown guy that I loved him on Friday! He just laughed and went back to his truck. He was here around 12:30 when usually it's 4:00 or 4:30. Gotta love those early deliveries!

Do you throw quarters around on the ground for Mr. Brown to pick up? Shame on you.

You bad girls! Throwing quarters on the ground.
Wouldn't it be better to put dollars in his pockets to get your packages earlier??

Well, just in case you didn't know...Diet Coke is not the easiest thing to get off your computer screen! Now I'm I've never thought of such a thing (good idea though)! Dollars in their pockets I'm just going to giggle all night about this!

If you put dollars in his pockets, you might give him the wrong idea!

Lucky me...I'm married to a Brown!
But he doesn't deliver to our neighborhood, so I have a special relationship with the Brown that does our route. He, he!

It's terribly embarressing when your children think you have a crush on the UPS man. My daughter looks at me one day and said "Does Dad know you love the UPS man?" I said "honey I don't LOVE the UPS man. But he is perfect." She looked at me oddly and said "Why?" I told her "because he brings me packages, looks cute in a uniform, I don't have to clean up after him, cook for him, or wash his stanky unders" She said "Yeah...I can see that"

The "Brown" truck is called "The Stamping Truck" at my house. My 4 year old thinks that is what it is for. Well it is, isn't it? My "Brown" driver happens to be female and she is very nice and takes good care of my packages.

I have a Miss Brown too. She is fantastic and I give her stamped goodies all the time! She LOVES them!

My three year old gets so excited when the doorbell rings. He runs to the door and yells "I'll get it!" It doesn't matter that most of the packages weigh more than he does. He just likes the UPS girl. I think he has a crush on her. Maybe THAT'S why he goes to the door with a handful of quarters!?!?! ROFL!

One day I saw our Mr. Brown in our neighborhood earlier than normal. I was meeting with a client and really needed that order. I almost considered following the truck and when it stopped, asking him if he had my order! Ten minutes before I was supposed to leave with samples that I did not have, he rang my doorbell. I ran to the door, shouted a big THANK YOU with a big smile and a big wave! Fifteen minutes later I left with the completed samples (gable box rolled with baroque burgandy gingerbread wheel and bb ribbon was the only one not completed)! My client was thrilled and so was I. I never considered stamping him something. I will definitely do that for my next order's arrival.

That's what my 4 year old calls the brown truck too! My Brown always rings the doorbell then knocks on the glass. My kids call out, "Mom, your stamps are here!" Now Mr. Brown is also "Santa" but hopefully the kids haven't picked up on that yet!
