Groundhog Day

So it's Groundhog Day here in the US. I don't really believe in this ridiculous holiday, but ALWAYS wish for an early spring and get mad when the groundhog calls for six more weeks of winter. Why I get mad, I don't know. But whatever.

Did you ever see the old movie, Groundhog Day!? Where the day repeats over and over and over?

In 'celebration' of today, I thought it'd be fun to share my ideal Groundhog Day - what I'd do if I had to repeat a day over and over.

First, I'd wake up early on a warm summer day (and naturally, with no alarm clock needed) to a quiet house where I'd go downstairs and sit outside on the patio in the warm morning air.

I love the morning sun streaming down on our backyard.

Coffee enjoyed outdoors during a quiet morning is also one of my favorite times of day.

Then the family would wake up and we'd have an indulgent breakfast. 

Then maybe we'd hit the beach. Maybe a tropical beach (which we'd magically appear at?) or maybe one around home.

Then while the kids napped, I'd enjoy a relaxing book and cocktail.

And maybe a swim!

Then it'd be happy hour!! I love a fun cocktail especially on vacation.

Bloody Mary's are always a good idea ...

Then I'd enjoy a delicious homemade meal outside. I love eating al fresco in the summertime. Love BBQ ribs and corn in the summertime!

And giant shrimp cocktails are one of my favs too ...

Then maybe we'd have a little backyard campfire!

Or maybe go out for ice cream!

And then close the day by watching some football!! Even though their games are usually during the day, a night game would be fun too.

And that's it. Essentially I guess I really am just wishing for summer.

What'd be on your ideal "Groundhog Day" ... ?

  8. I would not mind repeating that day every day! I say BS to that dang groundhog though because I woke up this morning and my car was frozen over--and it has not been that cold lately!

  9. That day sounds fabulous!!! That's a fun idea, I am trying to figure out what would be my ideal day to repeat over and over!

  10. I love your version of groundhog day. Are some of these pictures current?

    I think some of the days that I would love to re-live are the non humid days with Kyle and Sophie.
