Every woman should have (or know the location) of a toolbox that contains these things:
I've had this stuff since graduating high school, since I grew up with a father who builds custom homes and a mother who knows her way around a toolbox. I no longer take such things for granted, now that I know a number of sweet gals who couldn't find a screwdriver if their life depended on it. If you can't find a screwdriver, then I recommend knowing where the electric drill and corresponding bits are.

I love being handy.

I do have that stuff thanks to your dad. He got it for me for a gradution gift. Everybody is shocked when I pull it out because they don't think that a girl would have tools. :-)

You have that stuff thanks to my MOM. She's the one who gets it all pulled together every year...Dad's along for the ride! :)

Looks like the tool box gift is a common one. I also have the coolest red tool box filled with everything you listed thanks to your parents. Matt was so impressed when I showed him. Thanks Myers!

I just asked Josh, the day before you posted this, to create a tool kit just for ME. I requested everything in pink, so it doesn't get 'misplaced' in the garage.

Hey Addie,
I'll have you know I am the one that puts those tool boxes together! I have fun doing it too.
