Roald’s Gym

None of my Animal Crossing villagers love working out as much as my favorite penguin pal, Roald. I created a fitness center for him and his penguin pals on Harv’s island, and Turkey insists that it has to be called “Roald’s Gym!”

Penguin Wedding Party

On Wednesday, I shared pictures of Roald and Aurora’s wedding in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Today, I’m taking a look at their wedding reception in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp! I love everything from this most recent event, from the head table to the band set-up, and everything in between!

The Wedding of Roald and Aurora

Possibly my favorite part of Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far has been the fact that I was able to stage a wedding for Roald and Aurora, complete with proper attire, decorations and a wedding cake!

My Third 39th Birthday

Today is my 3rd 39th birthday, and the fourth family birthday we’ve celebrated since the pandemic began. It was, as the other three have been, a slightly different celebration from what we’re used to, but still fun!

I started the day with a birthday greeting from Roald in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Since I still haven’t gotten Roald to move to my island in New Horizons, this was very exciting, because I love it when Roald wishes me a happy birthday!

My animal neighbors in New Horizons did have a party for me at Antonio’s house, and there was cake and presents, and even a piƱata. As far as birthday celebrations in the time of COVID-19 go, this was really fun!

After church in the living room (again), I got to open my presents. And one of those presents was extra exciting, because it means I can invite Roald to my New Horizons island!!!

My other gifts were wonderful, too:

Since we couldn’t go anywhere, and I because I love Christmas so much, I even wore a Christmas print skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing:

The day was spend watching some of my favorite movies (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and A League of Their Own) and TV shows (I Love Lucy, Everybody Loves Raymond, Rick Steves’ Europe, Downton Abbey, The Golden Girls, and M*A*S*H), and baking cookies, as we always do on Sunday afternoons now.

For dinner we had one of my very favorites…Reuben casserole.

And a tiramisu layer cake for dessert, topped with 39 candles in the shape of a question mark!

We didn’t get to leave the house like we did last year for my birthday, but we had a really fun day!
