My birthday is February 23, and on the 23rd of each month, I share a couple of random facts about myself...
I have never eaten a Twinkie.
During the buzz this past week about the Hostess closing, it hit me that I've never eaten a Twinkie. Over the course of my elementary school years, I probably ate my then-weight in Little Debbie snack cakes, but I don't remember ever having a Twinkie, or a Ho-Ho, or a Ding-Dong. While part of me feels like I missed out on something all-American, I don't think they'll make me turn in my red, white, and blue. [All this talk leaves me with the odd hankering for a Swiss Cake Roll, though!]
I love the tradition of an Advent calendar.
I didn't have that tradition growing up, but I can't wait to start one in earnest for the girls. Last year we did countdown calendars, where they got to add a sticker ornament to their handprint tree each day, until it was fully decorated on Christmas. This year I'm going to structure it with an activity each day. I cannot wait!!!
Tune in next month for more randomness!
