February is the Hardest Month to Spell

If February was a person she would probably wear pink (on Wednesdays) and have glitter painted fingernails. Her favorite quote would be a lyric from a John Mayer song. She would have pink frosted cupcakes from every occasion, and say things like "Oh I'm just waiting for Mr. Right, not Mr. Right now". Her pinterest boards would look like she works for David Tutera or wants to kidnap Randy from Say Yes to the Dress. If February was a person she would instagram how the Baristas at Starbucks miss spell her name on her 7 word drink. February is a hard month to spell.

If February was a person she would be so over January's running-at-5-am-eating-nuts-and-berries-pretending-she-isn't-hoarding-girl-scout-cookies ways. She would be looking forward to the things that I, Meg, love about February....

1. Mardi-Gras: Reese and I are taking a little weekend getaway to the great city of New Orleans next week to do our due diligence as 20-somethings and experience Mardi Gras the way it should be-- in your 20's with some crazy fun friends. 

2. I met Reese in February,February 21st to be exact, although that isn't our anniversary (you can read about that here). The first thing Reese ever said to me was followed closely by placing a margarita in my hand... we celebrate each year by raising our lime and slit rimmed glasses for a cheers to another year! 

3. Pink and Red: 11/12 months of the year I think this combination is absolutely horrid, but magically on February 1st at 12:01 I must be visited by the Valentines fairy because for 28 days I don't want to violently hurl into a bucket when I see pink and red swirled together. It probably dosen't hurt that usually glitter in involved some where. 

4. SPEAKING OF GLITTER... in the month of February it is completely acceptable to wear glitter nail polish ALL MONTH LONG... guess what I am going to be be doing??? 

5. and the best is for last... Valentines day at a middle school... it is like watching animals in a zoo... most of the day I am in complete awe at the ridiculousness that ensues. This year my school is selling carnations... who wants to be I will have at least 4 crying girls in my room at some point because of these suckers. 

Here to February Yall! 
If Februaury were writing this she would have signed in glitter gell pen... dotting her "I's" with hearts.

I hope you have fun in New Orleans! I am leaving tomorrow for Mobile to go to a Mardi Gras Ball this weekend. They are so much fun! I have never been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras though I think that might be a little too crazy for me! haha

What a cute post! February would be exactly like that. Glitter nail polish is acceptable all the time ;)

You are going to be so close to me next weekend!! New Orleans is SO much fun during Mardis Gras. It's not as crazy as everyone thinks, as long as you don't spend all of your time on Bourbon. Going uptown for the parades is what we always do and I like it a lot better. And, trust me on this, go to F&M's one night while drunk and get some cheese fries. YUM!

Rachel said...

You are so so cute! I love this post....and I'll admit, I love all things valentines!!!

Glitter polish ONLY in February? I say errry day!

Kathleen said...

If February were a girl...instead of candy canes, she'd give out carnations. And Gretchen Weiners still wouldn't get any. :)

This post is adorable and so are you!

PS. I think this is the one month I'm glad I DON'T teach high school right now. lol

Jess said...

Definitely brings out the writing teacher in you ;)

Seriously most fun post I've ever read.

If February were a person - I'd be friends with her.

And #3 on your list. YES, just yes.

Hearing you recite this whole post out loud in the middle of a Mexican restaurant is probably the best way I could have possibly experienced it. Just saying.
