Today, I'm linking up with Amber & Neely for their 10-day Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge!
Today's topic is my favorite gift I've ever received!
After a considerable amount of thinking and trying to remember all the amazing gifts that I've gotten over the years, I think we have a winner.
I know, I know, it sounds a little out there, but let me explain!
At my elementary school, (in my SUPER small town) during P.E, you could either play basketball or you could try to learn to ride a unicycle. My school owned about 25 unicycles that everyone in the class had to share. Being so short, I was no good at basketball and decided to try my hand at unicycle riding.
Piece of cake, right?
No way! Learning to ride that thing was so hard! But, if you were good enough in class, then they offered you membership into the unicycle club (only the coolest of the 4th and 5th graders were members). I practiced every P.E class and was finally able to ride two full laps around the gym and gained membership into the club!
One day, the school gave us an order form for those interested in buying their own unicycle. I begged my parents, but they ultimately said no. We were doing Christmas at Weasie's house (my grandma) that year and I specifically remember seeing a big red bag under the tree with my name on it. I had no idea what it was.
Finally, when we opened presents, I was shocked to find my very own custom-fit unicycle. It was the coolest thing in the whole world! After that, I road in performances, parades, the whole nine yards!
(Worried for your eyes, I chose to leave out pictures of my crazy 4th grade perm and crooked teeth. Believe me, you wouldn't be my friend! Haha.)
I have received some of the most amazing gifts over the years, but I think this one takes the cake!
