Rabbit Rabbit…IT’S THE HOLIDAYS!

Something my mom taught us when we were young, was the tradition of saying “Rabbit Rabbit” on the first of every month.  I’m not sure if she meant to ingrain it in our brains or not, but it seemed like a fun habit, one which I continue to this day.  Sometimes I say it to myself and others I text to my sister with a funny bunny emoji.  Sometimes she responds with another emoji (simply because emojis make the day better) and sometimes she just lets me continue my twitter feed through our message chain.

Well, one day I stumbled upon a blog also featuring a title “Rabbit Rabbit”.  Through the glories of blog-hopping, I found these two bloggers (Corley May and Peace and Pizza) doing the same thing!

The great thing about the first of the month is that it’s like a clean slate.  I try to pick out a few goals for each month because you don’t have to wait around until January to make resolutions.  This can be along the lines of being more creative in terms of my meals, not snacking as much, or keeping a better sleep schedule.  However, there are a few other goals I want to set for this month because IT’S THE START OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON 🙂

Kate Spade created a fabulous list of things to do during the month of December, many of which I will be trying out. This will be my first season of living in SNOW, so of course a snowman is necessary, testing out various marshmallow recipes, ice-skating, and so on.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I was actually out at midnight and completely missed saying it when I should have. Hopefully later that morning counts! I just made my December list, but I like the one you shared – I’ll have to add some of those things to my list 🙂

    • Any time! I love the tradition and I usually go for whenever I remember, which could be the first thing in the morning or not until 10pm at night 🙂 just any time on the 1st.
