Instead of Valentines Day, we have our own, idiotic, nonsensical holiday that we celebrate the weekend before Valentines Day ... Meep Day. On Meep Day, we eat and drink till we burst and then give each other hand made gifts. It's something we plan on celebrating every year for the rest of our lives. Meep Day is all about the creativity and the love - and because you make the gifts yourself, it's usually cheap too.
This year, I made Bryan a cake in the shape of the Death Star. It kicked major ass and was filled with pudding. And I thought for sure I would have bested him - but he surprised me.
He bent the rules a little bit in the spirit of Meep Day - and got this fantastic trunk to hold all of our future and past Meep Day Plunder in. He inscribed it with a sweet note that made me get all teary-eyed.
Meep Day will be a tradition that we will carry on with our (wwaaaayyy in the future) children, and all the future Meep creations we can fit will wind up in this cool trunk. This was acceptable bending of the rules and the thoughtful boy should be commended.
Now I just have to think up something even cooler for next year ...
