Chuck Norris Celebrates It...and You Should Too

World Beard Day.  Oh yes, it's a thing.  My husband has sported a beard ever since he could grow one...around the age of 5 or so.  I was paging through a holiday-a-day site awhile back and spotted this gem of a celebration day.  Luckily for us, WBD falls on a Saturday this year.  We'll be celebrating with faux beards (for me and the boys)...some gag gifts...and dinner at the Cheesecake Factory - because beards love cheesecake - its a little known fact.  In case you would like to celebrate WBD, I've included the following little roundup of awesome.  And for more bearded fun, check out my Pinterest board!

Funny story - My husband and I were set up by my aunt.  Apparently my now hubs was lamenting about the lack of awesome women out there - it was his good fortune that he was complaining to the very person that could save him from his plight.  That June day my Aunt L called me to see if I'd be interested in meeting someone from her work.  Her description of him was, 'He's cute; maybe not someone you'd want to marry, but I'm sure he'd be alot of fun'.  I was 22 at the time - so sure, I was up for anything.  My only question - 'he doesn't have any facial hair does he?'  She assured me that he did not.  The day of our date we met at my aunt's house...imagine my surprise when he turned out to have a FULL BEARD...and a nice butt...and it turns out he is alot of fun.

Wedding Gift Roundup

Only two more months until my 'little' brother ties the knot with his sweetie.  Since I believe that all occasions, especially weddings, deserve a unique gift, I've been trolling Pinterest for ideas.  Here is a roundup of my top 8 favorites.  Now I just need to narrow it down and start crafting!

1 - I love the modern style of this print  {source}
2 - Awesomesauce shirts for the bride & groom  {source} and {source}
3 - My brother would appreciate this - we love (and randomly quote) The Princess Bride!  {source}
4 - The first day of your family box would be such an amazing keepsake {source}
5 - How stinkin adorable is this clothespin!  {source}
6 - This would be sweet in a print too  {source}
7 - A lovely ornament that doesn't scream 'Our First Christmas'  {source}
8 - The wedding is on St. Thomas - a heart framed map of the island would be such a sweet reminder of the day  {source}

My little brother is getting married in 2 St Thomas!  Sure I've known about this for a little while now.  And sure I knew that getting passports would make the trip that much smoother.  But did I procrastinate?  Oh you betcha!  So here we are, 8 weeks and a few days to go and we are finally going to apply for our passports.  It's first come, first serve - fingers crossed we're able to apply tonight!

Passports have been on my looooong things to do list for a few years now.  I'm thrilled to finally (hopefully) cross one more thing off the list!
