A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. ~Irish Proverb

On Sunday night, Ridge and I decided that we wanted to craft our own "staycation" the following day. We laid down some ground rules first:
1. Neither of us would be permitted to wear anything other than undies or jammies.
2. No amount of housework would be performed, except in the case of absolute necessity.
3. We would watch as many movies and eat as much comfort
food as we liked, with little to no regard as to health or sanity.
4. We could sleep in as long as we wanted, and never make the bed in the course of the day.

We started the morning at 8:30ish with our usual coffee, and followed it up with a sermon video by Louie Giglio. Then we took a shower, and lazed about til almost noon, when we started Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. Not the most romantic movie, I know, but it was fun nonetheless. Owls with armor sound lame, but the battles were pretty cool. In the middle of that, we made a batch of sham
elessly cheesy pasta shells, and scarfed down potato chips, carrot sticks, and pub mix for our side dishes.
Later on, we played Mancala, (I won) and Blink. (he won) We went on to eat a dinner of mashed potatoes with ground beef gravy, and watched Gentlemen Broncos. (which, at this point, I will stress that I do not recommend that one) We were both disappointed.
After getting ready and getting in bed, we spent our last waking minutes making up stories of fantasy dream houses in such exotic climes as the Swiss Alps, Tuscany, and New Zealand.
It was a fabulous day of reveling in love and laziness, and, in honor of our PJ day, I am posting the most amazing beds I have ever seen:

This one is my favorite.

Sweet dreams!

What a cute post. I'm glad you two are having so much fun.
That first bed is incredible. The only downfall is that if I slept in a bed like that I would probably get a serious goddess complex, and would only wear white flowey robes, ergo I would most likely freeze nine months out of the year.

Yeah, it was a lot of fun. You've got a point with the goddess complex thing. I don't think either of us will be in danger of that though, because the bed sells for around $24,000. :-(

Now you've done it. I am very hungry for very cheesy pasta. You two are so creative. I hope you have many more staycations and some gocations thrown in for good measure.
