rabbit rabbit rabbit

I can’t believe its March 1st

I'd like a super-sized order of:

but pleaseeee hold the baseball.

on the first of every month, my family says 3 words as soon as we wake up:
rabbit, rabbit, rabbit

This is a long time superstition/saying to bring you LUCK!
But of course, there are rules you must follow.

     1: must say out loud
     2: must say on the first of the month
     3: must be the FIRST thing you say when you wake up

I have been doing this since i was little bitty, so I am kind of a pro. 

My family is really very good at it,  but just as a precaution we all make sure to send out “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” text messages to each other.
My friends have caught on as well, which i love, because lucky friends, make the best of friends.

Austin is getting there.  He needs a  little reminder. 
I made sure to text him this morning.  his response?
 "rabits to you too! its going to be a good month"

(no stone, not when you spell rabbits wrong and don't say it 3 times)

so... say rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.

or don't

but don't say i didn't warn you.......

i love these little traditions! i had a teacher at school who told use you had to say 'white rabbit' three times and walk round in a circle, and that you had to do it as soon as you got up, before you said anything to anyone else!

oh and totally count me in for your supersized order with a double scoop of sunshine!

Whenever i type the word rabbit..i have to spell check it. Rabit? Rabbit? Rabbitt? Either way...Good luck to Austin!

Last night I was up when the clock stroke midnight and became March 1st so I said it then and when I woke up (looking for some extra luck perhaps.) And I laughed outloud when I read what Austin said... hahaha he'll learn soon enough!!!

Seeing that you visited my blog, I wanted to stop by to say hello! Seeing that I'm new to the whole rabbit idea, does it count against me that I said my three today?
