Happy Eight, Eight, O'Eight

I'm posting this now so any readers can still have time to try this as well - if you wish. We're leaving tomorrow for Grand Marais so I won't be able to post pics of the day until I get back, but here's what we're doing:
It's a momentous occasion for everyone because we won't have this day again. Tonight, we're all meeting at A&P's to pack the vehicles. The date is 8/8/08 and there are 8 of us going on this trip (how fortuitous!) and we decided to eat at 8:08 tonight and we're serving 8 foods. Honestly? It was sort of hard to come up with 8 different foods without cheating and counting the pickles on the burgers as one of the 8. We didn't cheat and we did try to think of creative foods to make.

Seven plus ice cream is eight!


  1. I adore the number 8. It's my favorite so I loved this post. Have a great time.

  2. Hi Lily - so glad the tissue holder tutorial was a success!

    (and nice to meet you)

    Bon vacances,

  3. The Olympics started today in China because the number 8 is revered in China and Asia for it's auspiciousness. I believe the phone number 8888888 (I'm not sure how many there actually were), was auctioned off for quite a bit of money in China 5-10 years back. See you soon!
