The Fifth Date of Christmas

Remember how last month was a flop?  Yeah, that happened again.  Whatever...judge me all you want.  I blame it on my husband.  Isn't that why we all got married in the first place?  Now, I always have someone to blame my mistakes on!  Hooray!  Go marriage!  

Anyway.

I was SO excited about this date!  =)  I gave him an envelope filled with all sorts of treasures.



All he had to do was pick a place he'd like to visit for a one-day vacation.  SO simple.  He could go crazy here!  I was expecting for him to say something like "India" or "The Bahamas" or somewhere that has a theme.  The plan was for him to pick a place, and I would turn our extra room over the garage into the destination he chose.  If he chose India, I would decorate the room to look like India.  I would cook Indian food.  We would listen to Indian music.  We would play an Indian board game or watch a movie set in India.  Makes sense, right?  All he had to do was pick a place with a theme I could work with.

He chose "The Snowy Mountains."  Let me remind you that May in South Carolina tends to be rather warm.  That made the whole idea of sitting around a camp fire sound pretty miserable.  What do people eat in the mountains?  Oh...you know...regular food.  It was theme I could not work with.  And so the month came and went and I didn't follow through with the date I promised.

Oops.

mmm you could have made smores! they are good no matter what temperature! and for whatever reason i equate smores with camping, which i equate with the mountains, haha.

Haha. This cracks me up because you sound like me-great intentions, but not so much on the follow thru. Hopefully the next month works out better!!

I can see how this theme could get tricky! Oh well, the year's not over yet. Maybe you can revisit this one in November or something.

Haha this is a cute idea, but I guess you should divide what should be given in which season...Better luck next time!
