Thursday 13 #13!

13 Things I Like About February

Thirteen Things about February

1. Groundhog Day! I love this day & I don't know why. :) It was so much fun when I was teaching, and now I look forward to doing "shadow searching" with my sons. We'll be our own
Punxsutawney Phil.

2. Mardi Gras! Fun times.

3. Paczkis. A polish treat to celebrate Fat Tuesday.

4. Super Bowl Sunday. I don't care much for the actual game, but I don't want to miss one single commercial!

5. Lent begins. I don't necessarily enjoy Lent, but it is a great time to refocus and get back in touch with HIM.

6. Presidents' Day, which means a long weekend for my hubby! I love long weekends. :)

7. February is the last full (official) month of winter. I hope for an early spring!

8. Taxes are filed & over with. I hate that hanging over my head.

9. LOST will resume! I know it technically begins January 31st, but it's the first month one of my shows will actually have NEW seasons. Stupid writers strike!

10. This February is a leap year one! 29 days. Since it only happens every 4 years, I think it's kinda cool.

11. Brennan will turn 10 months old, which means I get to start planning his first birthday party!

12. We're going to have Brennan's pictures done.

13. Valentine's Day. I'm not one to really celebrate it, but I do love the meaning behind it. I count myself very lucky to have the family I do. My husband and sons are all amazing. Patient, giving, and loving guys. I'm surrounded with love. :)

Using up all the candy, sugar, and fat is the best part of this wonderful month. No wonder Phil comes out to have a look around!

The best thing about Feb is it will be over then spring starts!

I'd love to experience Mardi Gras in New Orleans or even Rio de Janiero.

I remember as a child being forced to give something up for Lent. Now pointlessly giving stuff up is what I have given up.

Fun list. My sister was born on Leap Year so this year is her 15th actual birthday (She'll be turning 60!) We are going to have a big party and since we're in So. California we've decided to do a Quinceanera! :)

Natalie said...

I'm glad you enjoy February so much. I'm just glad it's almost here because that means January is FINALLY over! I swear January is the longest month ever!

Toni said...

Really fun list. I love packzi, too! (I may have spelled that wrong) In fact, I wrote a haiku about it a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks for the visit and the comment!

Andrea said...

My hubby is a HUGE Lost fan too!! I'm not really me bad dreams! haha ;)

Jerri said...

great list. i never thought much about Mardi Gras, and then I moved to Mobile, AL, and it's just huge down here (because the French settled here, and it was held here before Louisiana was ever established.) I didn't get a chance to go to a parade last year, but I hope to go this time. And I always look forward to Valentine's Day.
