Happy Presidents Day

I’m not sure if we are supposed to work today or not. So I’ll choose “kinda” and just work on my book, but take the day off all of the annoying stuff.

Meanwhile I’ll remind you of this portrait of a president that I put in Ian’s house. Why this president you ask? Because it’s hilarious (to us, not him). William Henry Harrison had the shortest presidency in history. He took the oath of office on March 4th and died on March 21st due to a cold. He didn’t wear a coat during his two hour inauguration in the cold, nor did he put one on during the subsequent parade. So he got a cold and died.

Wear your coats, kids.

Check out the rest of Ian’s living room. And please have an excellent President’s Day.

  1. Haha. Love your sense of humor. Happy President’s Day Emily!

    I’ve had some problems with the links since going to the new format. In this post when I clicked on either of the links I get a page ‘Uh Oh! It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps a search would help?’ I’ve tried on 2 computers and still the links haven’t worked. Also, the post on 2/12/13 Mid Century Dining Room Makeover has a link that should take us to the same home’s living room makeover but it actually brings us to the ‘succulent garden’ post instead. Great post just not the right one. Wanted to let you know because I love your blog!! Enjoy the rest of the holiday:)

      Yay! It works!! Your blog post got me to reading about President Harrison but the things I read said he died on April 4, 1841, not March 21st. I had no idea we had a Pres for such a short amount of time. Interesting stuff!!

    Oh my gosh…this is the funniest blog post I have read in a loooong time. AND I read a lot of blogs-ha! Thanks for the laugh and the beautiful eye-candy you always post!

  5. Oh My, I am happy I found you here. I saw the first show and cheered for you! Of course I have missed your sense of humor! I want to see you some goodies I invented that will know yours socks off and I guarantee you will use it every time you hang something. For sure, sure, sure!

    Where do I send it to?

    I love this anecdote about President Harrison, and I especially love that this is the president you featured for President’s Day! So funny! (And you’re right, not funny to him but funny to us!)
