In today's edition of the "Good Stuff" – you could call it 'how to be a perfect spouse.' This is the ultimate gift from a wife who missed her husband.
Like many husbands, Joe Battles was promising to fix up the basement, but he never got the chance to because he was sent away to Afghanistan. So his wife Mary Kate decided to fix it up for him
You see, Joe is a die hard Green Bay Packers fan, so his wife started with some green and gold paint. Then there was the pesky ceiling. But, like many of us, Mary Kate was on a tight budget. So friends chipped in. But the really change happened when Mary Kate put word of the project up on Facebook – the Packers stiff came pouring in! Logos, decals, memorabilia, a Foosball table, and of course, lots and lots of beer.
It took months, but by the time Mary Kate was done, Joe's basement went from zero... to green and gold-bathed hero. But that's not even the best present of all. The best present is that Mary Kate was a bears fan before she met Joe. She converted – now that is love!
