So last night was super fun. My friend Ashley invited me to go with her to this event in her town called Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny (meaning Ganaraska River). I had never heard of this before, but I like the word fanny (quite a lot), so of course that lured me in and I was immediately game.
Apparently is just like a river race. You can use canoes or kayaks, or you can make your own raft, and then you get your fanny on it and float on down the Ganny.
I found this photo on their Facebook page, so you can get an idea.
Definitely looks like a good time.
The sad thing is, we missed the actual fanny-floating… Ash had to work during the day, and I had some other things going on, so unfortunately we missed the prime fanny time.
But it is okay! We went to the Ganny bar afterwards, and a lot of the fanny-floaters were in attendance. I had a ridiculously good time.
Super classy, super classy. Let me just say that I love small-town bars (well I have actually said this before).
Ashley, her friend Leanne and I got ready together before heading over there. I have met Leanne once before, and loved her instantly, so I knew the three of us would probably have the best time ever.
We headed out early to avoid any lineups, because apparently fanny-floating day in Port Hope is just as busy as St. Patrick’s Day. It is the biggest event of the year there, and people just hang out and drink at the bar all day long.
I think what I love the most about small-town bars and pubs is that there are just so many characters in there. Anyone who is 40+ and drunk just makes me laugh really hard. Doesn’t matter who it is. I love drunk grown-ups.
Like this man:
New best friend.
I brought the glasses so you know they came out to play…
Actually they made quite an appearance… Sometimes when I am at the bar, I like to give myself a little mission or goal for the evening. Last night’s mission was to see how many pictures we could get of random people wearing the glasses (I don’t like to set an actual number, so then I can’t fail the mission – I was just aiming for a lot).
The mission was a huge success.
Hey, you asked for a glasses party (or at least someone did). Here you go. You are quite welcome. (I’m sorry if you don’t find the glasses funny, but I SURE DO.)
Anyway, as you can see, people LOVED the glasses. They were basically falling over themselves trying to wear them for a picture. It was great.
So fun. It was just so much fun. The three of us basically spent the entire night laughing.
Now onto the Nanny!
This morning I headed over to my aunt’s house for a little brunch party with my fam, including my beautiful little Nana, and my two fave cousins who are visiting from BC (along with their babies).
We had ham and kielbasa (LOVE kielbasa, huge in my family) sandwiches, and the best raspberry custard pie I have ever tasted.
It was such a cute family date. I left feeling all warm and fuzzy.
I just love my little Nana so much. Sometimes I just look at her and I feel like my heart may actually explode because I love her so much.
She is so cute I just want to eat her up. Look at her all sassy in her dress with her red nails.
And again, because I can’t talk about my Nana without reminding you of her age, she will be 98 in July. 98! She is still so full of life, and so with it, and so positive. I truly believe it is her positivity that has kept her alive and healthy for so long. My aunt and cousins agreed with me. She’s the most positive and upbeat person I know.
And look at that skin! She was absolutely glowing and gorgeous.
You guys are all probably sick of the glasses by now. I know, I’m sorry. But I do have one last pic for you…
I just love her.
Hope you all have a great Sunday night!
Oh, and you should all go out and invest in a pair of glasses immediately. Honestly, it is never-ending good times.
