Happy E.K. Day!

Do you know what today is? It’s E.K. Day! E.K. Day is celebrated the FIRST non-school/non-work day after Christmas. “E” and “K” stand for the initials of mine and LilZ’s first names. Today is the day we leave the house early in the morning and spend the day eating out, watching movies at the theater, and spending our gift cards people gave us for Christmas. It’s gotten to be such a big deal that family members make a POINT to give us gift cards just to spend on this day. LilZ is in the shower and I’m ready to go.

So. I’ll be out spending quality time with my son. Shopping and Eating. It’s a beautiful thing, isnt it? Have a great Saturday!

  4. I think they should make this a national holiday!!! Me and Deb will be spending E & K Day in a similar fashion…..spending money but TRYING to eat right!!!

  5. What a cool holiday. Do you think we could make it national? You know, just so the rest of us have an excuse to eat and shop and everything else. Enjoy the day!

  6. Wow, that just reminded me to go out and spend my one remaining gift card. E.K. day isn’t just fun for you, it’s also a public service!

  7. Sounds great! I have $165 worth of gift cards from STEIN’S to spend. (It’s just a coincidence that they are all STEIN’S cards.) I wish I could come with you!

I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
