April Fool's

I'm not usually one to post on the weekends...
but here I am—on a Sunday—
bouncing around in my rain boots, splashing in puddles in the rainy weather,
 celebrating the new month.

Let's let those spring showers 
bring May flowers...
and no fooling on this day!!!

As you probably realize, today is the first day of April, a.k.a.
April Fool's Day
one of my least favorite days of the year.
I think April Fool's Day is terrible,
and I promise you, I will not play any mean jokes on you today.

Every year, my family always tries to fool me
and they usually succeed, because I'm very gullible.
One year, my sister convinced me she was pregnant (at 19—unplanned) and didn't know what to do.
I was so scared for her. I sobbed. 
I wanted to help—to be the best sister I could to be there for her.
Then she "April Fooled" me.
What a major pain in my booty.

I just don't like it!
It's not nice!
Fooling people is not pleasant.
It's not cute.
It's really, really unnecessary.
So Mom, Marn, Stew and especially Daniel... 
if you try to fool me today, you're fooling yourself!
Because I know it's coming this year!

That being said,
Happy First Day of April.
Go give a loved on a kiss, a hug, a nice "I love you."
Meet a new friend.
Do something nice for someone else.
Be thankful for this day...
and thank me for reminding you it is April Fool's day.
You're welcome ♥

I hate April fools too! I had to explain this to my husband and then threaten him with bodily harm but it seems to have worked because he hasn't played a single mean trick today :)

Aunie honey, you are far too beautiful for one person!

April Fool's Day isn't a fav of mine either. It actually sucks...It's where all the mean people get to play =(

Hope you're having a great weekend doll.

Bahaha I fooled my friends last year, telling them I was getting a tattoo at 15, and BOY OH BOY, 90% of them fell for it. ;) I have invented a fake boyfriend for this april fools, and I am making my girlfriend go CRAZY with details about him. :P I've pulled the pregnancy one, but it didn't last very long. People were like, "uh huh, nice try." I have always loved tricking other people, because no one can trick me back. ;) I used to be gullible, but I learned the hard way.

I've already seen 3 "i'm pregnant" and 1 break up on facebook this morning. All of which are april fools of course.

I don't like April Fools day either!! I remember when I was younger someone said if they try to trick you after noon then they are the fool! I stayed in bed and off the computer until noon haha!
Enjoy your day! and Happy April!!

I made it through the day (almost) without one joke on me!

I think the trick for me is that I don't dish things like that out AND I don't react very well.

Nobody takes my "goat"...(you know the old saying - don't let them steal you goat- ?)

I am with you!

I'm not a fan of April Fool's either! I am always glad when it's over!!

You are so adorable and I LOVE your outfit! :)) I didn't pull any April Fools this year. We spent the entire day outside - there was no time for that. ;)

Nicole said...

I agree with you. I don't like April fools day either!!

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

I feel the same way! I hate tricks like that. I don't mind being laughed at, but not for something like that! Yikes! Your sister played a pretty mean one on you too!

I hope you didn't get April Fool-ed yesterday, dear!

Ok so check this out. Last year I poured water on my sisters bed and woke her up and told her she peed. hahahahahahaha.... i couldn't help it/ It's the only good trick I've EVER done.

And I'm not too sure that you "know it's coming" or "knew" considering I was able to trick you? haha...

With all that said: Love ya;)Just don't expect not to be tricked...
