Here Fishy, Fishy…

It seems like everywhere I look and everyone I know is talking about Discovery Channel’s Shark Week! I think it must be human nature to be fascinated with such a large and complex animal. I however, don’t necessary share in everyone’s awe of this great creature. I am terrified of sharks, and by terrified, I mean full on panic attacks any time I’m in the ocean. Here’s one example. On our honeymoon in Hawaii, against my better judgment, I let my hubby talk me into snorkeling. I guess you can call it denial of how severe my fear of sharks truly is, but it became instantly apparent as I was getting ready to jump into the ocean. There I was, all geared up ‘ready’ to jump in when I had a full on fear panic attack. My hubby calmed me down and talked me into getting in the water and I was so glad I did. The sea life was so beautiful and I’m glad I didn’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!

Getting back to everyone’s love of sharks, I have forced myself to watch a few shows featured on shark week. While this hasn’t done anything for my fear of sharks, or the ocean in general, they are pretty interesting animals. This got me thinking, if everyone is in love with watching shark week…why not get together for a Shark Week party! While searching the internet I found some very cute and cleaver ideas on party decorating with a shark theme, here are a few of my favorite ideas…

Hope you all enjoy Shark Week and let me know if you end up hosting a Shark Week party. After all, it’s only here for one week a year! (I think I can attempt to get over my fear for just one week a year…at least here’s hoping!)
