Stuff That Makes Me Smile: Cool Wedding Proposals

Leave a comment

I’ve never really been one for super romantic,  grand gestures, but there’s just something really fantastic about a well-crafted, well planned, creative wedding proposal. This is perhaps one of the best I’ve seen in a while.

Who hasn’t felt this way?

It’s impossible to watch this video and not smile. Can’t be done.  This song is fantastic. I love this video.  I love the choreography via Poreotix. I’ll admit I was slightly creeped out by the monkey masks, but after watching it a few times this goes away.

Stuff That Makes Me Smile: #3 Snow Days

Leave a comment

(from my blog: Stuff that make me Smile)

Growing up in the Midwest, any little snowflake was enough to get me excited about the possibility of no school. Me and my brother and sister would stare blankly at the television waiting for the newscaster to say our school was cancelled. This was in old school days before the Internet and fancy schmancy tickers across the screen. (Kids today have it so good.)

Now keep in mind I grew up in a city where inches of snow was not enough to keep us from having to go to school. So on that rare occasion when they cancelled school it was a cause for celebration. It was even better when we knew before bed and didn’t have to wake up early to find out. (It was still pretty sweet even if we did wake up in the morning and find out school was cancelled.)

This current snowstorm is bittersweet. I just graduated from college last semester. The snowstorm has been the first time I can remember that school has been canceled for three straight days. Its cool because I didn’t want to have to get out in the snow, but it kind of sucks because I don’t get that joy I had as a kid of waking up and learning there’s no school today.

A small consolation is that work was cancelled. So that still makes me smile.

SMILE METER: 10 (on days when I’d have to go to school); 6 (on days when I wouldn’t be leaving the house anyway)
