The time has officially come! I’m taking a brief blogging break to focus on the wedding and honeymoon without any distractions and although getting the blog done every single day has become a really normal routine it does take a bit of time that I’m just not willing to give up in the near future. I don’t want to leave you all too unprepared so we’re throwing a holiday blow-out bash on the blog today so that you can celebrate everything while I’m away! Don’t worry, it’s just a brief recess and I’ll be back on August 26 like clockwork, or at least that’s the plan!
(8/11) Happy National Presidential Joke Day! I did actually vote for Obama and I still think that he’s doing the best he can right now with the political gridlock and extreme separation between parties. However, I have no problem telling a presidential joke. Here’s one of my favorite harmless one-liners from a quick internet search: “What’s Michelle Obama’s favorite vegetable? Barackoli!”
(8/12) Happy National Sewing Machine Day! Here we are with my mum’s trusty sewing machine. Although I do need a little bit of help each time, I do know how to thread the needle and sew just a little bit so it’s not completely foreign to me. However, I’m beyond far from being a seamstress. Maybe this holiday is a good reason to get it back out and practice some more?
(8/13) Happy National Lefthander’s Day! I’m a righty and I’m proud of it! We drive on the right side of the road and I use my dominate, right hand. Sounds right to me! – But I guess those oddball lefties have to stick together, right?
(8/14) Happy National Navajo Code Talkers Day! Looks like it’s time for the annual showing of Wind Talkers with our favorite actor Nic Cage! Not the worst movie in the world but I wouldn’t recommend watching it unless it’s in the holiday spirit.
(8/15) Happy National Relaxation Day! Ahhhh, it’s the day before the wedding so it’s only fitting that I should be reminded to relax and enjoy the process. While we’re scrambling to set up tables and no one can find my veil I need to sit in the shade, toss some cucumbers over my eyes, and put my feet up. Maybe you’ll have to relax for me?
(8/16) Happy World Honey Bee Day! It’s so funny how the holiday curse is always following me! Today is the big day of the wedding and we’ll just hope and pray that the honey bees mind their own business because there is actually a big wild hive in the oak tree that we’re getting married in front of. Romantic, right? Well – they’re nearly an endangered species and they help pollinate the fields and flowers so we can’t move them, kill them, or smoke them. Hopefully none will fly up my dress!
(8/17) Happy National Thrift Shop Day! We’ll be back at the house for the afternoon unwrapping wedding presents with the grandmas and prepping thank-you cards to write on the plane. Although we won’t have time to thrift it up then you can be sure that’s where we’ll be headed to get all of the extra things that we don’t have squared away for the new apartment after we get back!
(8/18) Happy National Serendipity Day! You can bet we’re in luck and happy beyond belief while we’re screaming our heads off on Disney roller coasters and basking in the Florida sun. Meeting Micky Mouse, lounging by the pool, and eating amazing food – oh yeah, lots of serendipity for us!
(8/19) Happy National Aviation Day! Aren’t planes so cool? The physics behind flying continues to baffle me and although it probably won’t ever happen I think that it would be cool to get my pilot’s license and fly myself around. Even airports and security don’t bother me too much because I’m busy being excited about where I’m going!
(8/20) Happy National Radio Day! I love driving because I get to listen to the radio and NPR is always my favorite station. I definitely will be too busy to listen to the radio on the honeymoon but hopefully you can just turn yours on and celebrate for me!
(8/21) Happy National Spumoni Day! Spumoni, according to my quick Google search, is a molded Italian ice cream with different colors and flavors that usually include candied fruits and nuts. Perhaps I can find this Italian treat in the world section of Epcot? We may just have to make plans to eat at an Italian restaurant this night!
(8/22) Happy National Be An Angel Day! It can be hard to be an angel, trust me – I do try, but today we might all have to try a little harder. I aim to let a big, rowdy family of kids with a tired mom cut in front of me in line, tip a little higher than my minimum for an extra thoughtful cast member, and avoid my usual snappy responses to Eric when I get tired or frustrated. What will you do to be an angel?
(8/23) Happy National Day For the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition Day! Alrighty, it has officially been remembered!
(8/24) Happy National Go Topless Day! This day, our last day in Disney, is chalked full of fun holidays as it’s also National Pluto Demoted Day, Vesuvius Day, National Waffle Day, National Knife Day, and National Wayzgoose Day. Although I absolutely will not go topless through a major tourism hub I may try to remember to use a knife at dinner in celebration!
(8/25) Happy National Kiss and Make Up Day! If you’ve rubbed your partner the wrong way or been kind of a jerk the last few days, refusing to go topless maybe, you can take this opportunity to kiss and make up! While we’re traveling home I’m sure I will get a little testy and irritated coming back to reality and trying to make our connecting flights and late night travel home. It’s a good thing that we can kiss and make up! Yay for happy holidays!
