True Life: I Travel With a Penguin

Happy Wednesday!

Not sure what you think but I feel like this week isn't going by fast enough. That's mainly because I didn't get a ton of rest over the weekend amidst all of my jet-setting and tailgating. #partyhard #firstworldproblems

Speaking of jet-setting, I have an excellent confession for you today and I believe the title says it all. 

I am twenty-six years old and I travel with a very sweet stuffed penguin named Willie. 


Willie has actually had a few names but Willie is the one that's stuck - seems like a penguin's name, right? 

Okay so he's also not just my travel buddy, he's my bedtime buddy too. Call it a cure for the long distance, the sweet guy of mine bought me this a while ago and he's been my companion through the thick and thin. Willie is kind, sweet and doesn't resent me even though I shoved him into a drawer for four months and threatened to give him to mom and dad's golden retrievers as a chew toy. 

Willie's perfect for a lot of things including but not limited to the following:

:: Intimate nighttime snuggling
:: My Travel Companion
:: Gives it to me straight (look at those honest eyes)
:: He's a soft shoulder to cry on
:: He has a squishy tummy to sleep on
:: The most ruthless Netflix critic you'll ever meet
:: The best pillow for the long flights and adventures we take together. 

I could go on. You think I'm weird, don't you?

Yeah me too. 

Hump along with Kathy who is on vacation today, but still showed up to class!

Awww, Willie is so cute!!!! No, I don't think you are weird, at all! I travel with a bear, named Trip. He's mine and Le Husband's travel buddy.

Before I was married and had Trip, I traveled with a stuffed dog named Dodger. He was great to hug on planes and sleep with in new places. :)

Totally not weird. At my parents' house I sleep with this doll I've had since I was born, and at my apartment I sleep with a stuffed dog (named Puppy because I'm really clever). This is every night. Not just when I travel. lol

Well this might be the cutest thing ever!!! When Chris and I lived in two different states, he bought me a good sized teddy bear that held a heart in his hands. He would spray it with his cologne when I wasn't watching when he came to visit me so I could smell him when I missed him. Creepy or sweet, keep your judgement to yourself.

That's really cute!! I don't think you're weird, I saw a girl on the subway with her stuffed animal yesterday and I'm pretty sure she wasn't travelling and she was well over 18 LOL!

I sleep with a sock monkey that my mom made me when I moved away to college. I still sleep with it now. And I'm married...so there's that. :)

Meagan said...

Aww, he is adorable! You are not weird at all. I have a white bear named Whitey (blame my toddler self) and an elephant my mom gave me a couple years ago (has a few names) that I sleep and travel with. :)

Confession time: I sleep with a teddy bear named Scott. No one significant gave him to me and I didn't even get him until 2005, but somehow he became a regular in my bed.

I am literally obsessed with penguins. I have a dog named penguin. Now I want a stuffed one to sleep with! So cute!

I think traveling with a Willie is the best thing ever no matter your age!
