Happy Memorial Day! + Frankie's Blog Contest


Question of the Day: What are you doing to celebrate Memorial Day?
For those of you living in America, Happy Memorial Day! Big thanks to those who currently serve or have served our great country. You are our heroes. Unfortunately, I had school because we'd originally taken an extra Snow Day during the winter time, so today was our makeup day. On a brighter note, today was also a half-day, so I am home early! Yay!


A few cool facts about Memorial Day (Source: Yahoo):
  • It was originally called "Decoration Day"
  • It wasn't considered an official holiday until 1971
  • Civil War General John Logan was the one who founded the holiday
In addition, Frankie Writes blog is having a 500 Followers Contest in which she is giving out three pretty awesome books: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green, Looking For Alaska by John Green, and Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski. Basically you just have follow her and comment her, but there are multiple ways in which you can earn brownie points! Check out her blog to see how. Good luck to all entrants. :)

Stay tuned for yet another Cooking post (broccoli and cauliflower casserole!) and a Character Profile. Have a good day!

Well, it was raining over here so I was trapped inside for the day. But we did grill burgers out on our back porch. They weren't bad as cheap as they were. xD
