Last year I went on eBay and bought a box of unicorns and it even included a teddy bear riding a unicorn. (her story also has a Holy Teddy Bear). I shared the box of unicorns with people who also read and appreciated Super Earthlings post.
Holy Unicorn has become an inside joke between me and some of my dearest friends. One of these dear friends sent me a plush unicorn/minion character (from the movie Despicable Me or Me II) for my birthday. I opened it at dawn. It included a card about filling my day with rainbows and sparkles and sillies.
I decided to let Holy Unicorn come with me everywhere all day and I chronicled Her adventure in photos and captions.
I hope you will enjoy Her day with me on my birthday.
|Holy Unicorn is unwrapped from her traveling cocoon of |
Amazon gift wrap and cardboard just in time to see the sun rise
|She clears the road of traffic for a good, orderly|
start to my birthday travels. First stop: a meeting!
|But then Holy Unicorn notices I am low on gas|
|She sends me to a gas station and makes|
the price of gas magically drop below
$3.00 a gallon.
|We get to the meeting and while I enjoy the|
fellowship and sharing, Holy Unicorn protects
the treasure's money pouch.
|We return home to find presents!|
Here is Holy Unicorn checking out
my new Disney Haunted Mansion bookends!
|She likes this view more|
|As a birthday gift, I suggested $200 to put towards a|
consultation with a nutritionist. My husband thought
that sounded 'un-fun.' I said it is fun to me.
Holy Unicorn reads the cute certificate my
husband made for my birthday.
|Holy Unicorn is touched by the gesture and blows her nose.|
|We drive up to Lake County to visit beautiful|
Lake Yale but first we stop for coffee. Holy
Unicorn approves of a venti dark roast with
unsweetened almond milk brought from home.
At this point Holy Unicorn saw something else that caught her attention.
|Holy Unicorn threw a rainbow of forgetfulness over the|
case of bakery goods so that my magical magnifying mind
would not be inspired to remember how anything might
have tasted in my past life. I remain sugar free.
Then we continued on with the Journey of the Birthday
|Holy Unicorn sees Lake Yale for the first time and is|
excited at how peaceful the area is today. She takes time to
contemplate the mysteries of the universe while Larry
and I swat at blind mosquitoes and gnats.
|She reminds me to stop and make a wish at the|
artificially colored fountain of pool-looking water.
|I decide we will have lunch as Bob Evans.|
It takes forever for our order to arrive.
While we are waiting for my Heritage Salad,
Holy Unicorn makes use this handy
Table-Stable and rests.
|Refreshed, she checks out the remainder of|
my salad and reminds me to eat my
|We stop at the check out counter and donate toward feeding|
a family for Thanksgiving. Holy Unicorn signs the
leaf with her initials H.U.C.
|Holy Unicorn scolds me gently for leaving Her|
behind but she is please we returned for her.
We return to the rest of the adventure:
|Here we are at Renniger's Flea Market.|
I didn't like it at all and neither did Holy Unicorn. She stayed in
my pocketbook and would not pose for photos here.
|We drive to Disney World and she pops her head out|
of my bag and asks "What is this magical place??"
|She enjoys her first Monorail ride.|
|Oh my, she likes the pretty castle in the distance|
|As you can see from her face, Holy Unicorn really|
enjoyed getting felt up by the security guard
who checked my purse at the entrance gate
|While I visited the necessaries, Holy Unicorn|
insists on a photo at a most inopportune time.
We meet up with my daughter and visiting niece and nephew while in the park
and find another gift to open!
and find another gift to open!
|Holy unicorn wants me to open the gift . . . .|
|. . . so She can play in the bag!|
|Holy Unicorn checks out her reflection in my|
phone and decides she needs to be groomed.
|Then she helps me read the many Happy Birthday|
greetings I received on Facebook during the day.
|Holy Unicorn thinks she is posing with the Great Pumpkin|
|Then Holy Unicorn realizes this is only a street light|
decoration and not the real Great Pumpkin.
|We end our day walking under the carved pumpkin decorations|
that spell out "See ya real soon!
It was a great birthday, devoid of sugar, overeating and bloating foods. It was filled with sunshine, rainbows, sillies and the best Holy Unicorn adventure to date!
To quote the carved pumpkins: See ya real soon!
