I'm Not a Krank

I love Christmas. It's one of my favorite times of year. Granted, this year, it doesn't FEEL like Christmas because it's 80 degrees, but welcome to Florida, right? 

Even without the snow and all of that, I'm still ready to celebrate Christmas. So imagine my surprise when I won a trip, all expenses paid, to Hawaii with the family. This is a once in a lifetime chance for us, because we would never be able to afford it otherwise. 

I look through the itinerary and really consider taking this vacation. But there is just one problem.....

The trip is from 12/23-1/2.
The catch? We can't bring anything Christmas. 

So now I'm faced with a dilemma...
Do I take this once in a lifetime vacation for my family?
Do I forget this and stay home to celebrate Christmas?

What is a girl to do?!

I think on it long and hard. I compare. I contrast. I pro. I con.

In the end?

I can't give up my Christmas.

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 13 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My subject was "Holiday Escape: If given the opportunity, would you leave on a surprise vacation to a place with no festivities over the holidays?"  and it was submitted by Confessions of a part-time working mom.

Do me a solid and see what my friends have for you?

November Friday Funny

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by me.

1. You know how a night of drinking can sometimes lead to a mistake? Yea.......
2. I am my humans and this kitty is mine!
3. Hoomans wants equal rights. So do aminals!
4. This is my cuddle buddy.
5. Just a dog, watching a show, with his cat.

*side note* When I saw that this picture was the one for this month, it hit me like a punch to the gut. That's my Pi Guy. We lost him in April and it still hurts so, so bad. I didn't expect to see this picture and when I did, tears immediately sprang to my eyes. I miss you so much, Pi Guy.
