Friday’s Letters 25

Dear People Who See that Dress as Being Black and Blue, How? This is one thing I will never understand. And frankly, I wish I never would have looked at it. I just do not get it.

Dear WB, No, there is not a frog in your room. No, you do not need a drink of water. No, you are not scared of your Paw Patrol stuffed animal. No, you do not need to tell the dogs something.  But yes, you crack me up.

Dear Spring, Are you ever going to get here?  Please hurry.  We are freezing.

Dear Disney, Do we really need to go see Cinderella to see the new Frozen short?  Isn’t there another way?

Dear “Keychain Access”, You are literally the best thing that ever happened to me. You know how often I forget my passwords?  Every day.  More than once a day at that.  But with you I just need ONE password and then can look up any password I have saved.  Amazing.

Dear Starbucks. I was so excited about your Coconut Milk and then discovered it’s not really coconut milk.  Why?

Dear My Old Teachers on Facebook, Why didn’t I realize how cool you all were when I was in high school?  I mean seriously.

Dear Me, Uhh, how did it take you almost a week to realize that one of your prints on the Gallery Wall was hung sideways?  LOL.

Dear Big Hero 6, Why didn’t anyone warn me about how sad you were? I should have asked L about it before I watched.  He would have warned me.

Dear Llamas That Escaped, OMG, I couldn’t have enjoyed watching you run free any more than I did.  The kids and I were cracking up.  I don’t know if it was funnier to watch you or watch the people trying to catch you.  Awesome.

Dear Target, You win, I hit up the Valentine’s Day clearance. I waited till it was 90% off though, so maybe I won?

Dear B, I hope we are still talking this weekend after you hang up my gallery wall with me ;).

Dear The Real World, Have you ever had an episode without a fight? For real. There are some angry people in the real world obviously!

Dear Michigan State, Things are looking up! A few weeks ago I wasn’t sure you’d make the tournament and now I feel like you are going to make a run!

Dear L and WB, I love how you two are becoming so tight! I think you two actually LIKE hanging out with each other. PLEASE let it stay this way.

Dear ipsy, My Glam bag isn’t here yet, so stop sending me e-mails telling me it’s time to review my products!  But I do love how many new reward items you have been putting up!

Dear “Pancake Art”, I see people on Facebook creating these amazing characters out of pancake batter and they make it look SO easy.  However, it’s not.  It just not.  At all.  Don’t be fooled!

Dear Flip-Flop Weather, Listen, you can’t get here soon enough.  This -15 stuff is for the birds.  The fuzzy birds who can stay warm. It’s just too cold for the rest of us, including my dogs, who HATE this.

Dear emojis, Who thinks of you?  Can you talk to whoever made you and get some new ones? We need some fresh stuff!

Dear Jenelle and Nathan, Are you really broken up? Really? I am not sure if I will ever believe you two are done for good.

Dear Me, Way to wear your uncharged fitbit and not even notice it wasn’t counting steps. Oops.

Dear WB, I can’t help but wonder if you’ll ever stay in your bed all night. I am guessing no? But when are in my bed (and you aren’t kicking me in the face), you are pretty snuggly, so I don’t mind too much.

Dear The Oscars, Wait. I thought you were on THIS weekend? Why don’t they still have those tv guides in the newspaper anymore? Or do they? I need one.

Dear David Moore, You want to BAN yoga pants? WHAT? No. Just no.

Dear Target, I just realized that your Valentine’s Day clearance will start soon. I had nearly forgotten all about this. I may be losing my touch.

Dear L, I am sorry up-north is out this weekend (-10 degree weather isn’t very good for playing outside), however, I think going to see the SpongeBob movie and spending the night at your Nana and Papa’s house is just as good!  And yes, just like you told Daddy yesterday, I am 22.

Dear My Parents, Happy (early) Anniversary!  You have been married *almost* forever!

Dear Detroit, People don’t give you enough credit, but you are a darn cool city.  Lots of great shops and bars and restaurants.  And of course, great people!

Dear Winter Break, No idea what we are going to do next week to take advantage of the time off school, but I think we are all pretty excited about you!

Friday’s Letters 10

Dear B, Thank you for building my IKEA cart. And thanks for telling me that it took you and a 2 year-old “10 minutes” to build. It took me like 45 minutes last time I built one.

Dear MUT, What on earth happened to you in the last week? Everyone’s fighting, none of the same mods are left, it’s a mess. You just haven’t been the same since that new site conversion ;(.

Dear PopSugar, Can we get some February spoilers over here? We are all waiting!

Dear L, I love how seriously you are taking your February fitness challenge from school. You are doing awesome at it!

Dear Snow Days, I love you! Let’s have more of you again soon.

Dear The Android Commercial with the Animals, You got me.  Every time you come on, I drop everything I am doing and stare at those adorable animals palling around.  You are the cutest commercial ever.

Dear WB, You are trouble!  You know what I mean ;). But I will say that throwing your iPad over the railing because it’s easier than carrying it down the stairs probably isn’t the best idea ever. #itdidnntbreak #itshouldhavethough

Dear Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Wow.  That is some cover you’ve got going on!  I’ll admit the bottom is a little small, but listen, if I looked like that, well, I find out where she got it so I could get one too!

Dear Justin Bieber, Ugh.  I am been watching you on Ellen and darn it, you have been quite likable.  Plus, Ellen seems to really like you and I trust her judgement.  Don’t mess this thing we have up Biebs!

Dear Technical Savvy Friends, Thanks for letting me ask you questions, asking them in technical jargon that I don’t really understand and then (because you know I have no idea what you are talking about), ending it with “it won’t blow up your blog if you do it”. I owe you!

Dear Parenthood
, I’m going to miss you.  I don’t know what else to say ;(.

Dear Reborn Dolls, Why did I google you? Because I am pretty creeped out. And so is B because I made him look too.

Dear Me, You should have gone to school to learn to fix blog problems instead of accounting.  That would come in much more handy than knowing about Balance Sheets and Income Statements and Journal Entries right now.

Dear Baxter, Please live forever.  You too Buddy.  You are the best dogs ever.

Dear L, You are the best big brother.  You are so kind, so patient and so sweet with WB. You play at his level of roughness and he just adores you.  And so do I ;).

Dear Grey Hair, AHHHHHH,You are getting so bad that regular hair dye doesn’t even cover all of you anymore.  Am I going to need to start buying special dye of this mess?  Maybe.

Dear B, When we are at IKEA tomorrow and it is crazy packed with people, let’s just remember for a second that this was your idea okay? I’m going to love it, but you’ll be annoyed before we even hit the parking lot.  #youridea

Dear GAP, Every time I place an order from you, I can’t help but be amazed by how many separate shipments I receive.  I have no idea how you are making money sending me 5 different shipments each containing one $3 shirt?

Dear WB, I think you might be the sweetest toddler around.  I think you probably give me 100 hugs a day.  When you yell “HUGGIES” and come running towards me for a big hug, well that might just be the best thing ever.

Dear Flat White, It’s been about a week now and you are still my #1. And I am still surprised at how good I think you are.

Fridays Letters 7

Dear Baxter and Buddy, Professional dog groomers may not agree, but I think the haircuts I gave you yesterday look great! A little uneven maybe, but better than before!

Dear Me, No matter how cute you think other people’s bangs look, DO NOT DO IT. You will like them for about two weeks and then they will start getting in your eyes and you’ll have bang regret. Happens every time.

Dear L, I am sorry that you didn’t get a Golden Ticket yesterday. I know it sucks ;(.

Dear Jen, I cannot believe that you did not know that Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden were married. I expected more from you!

Dear The Superbowl, I wish you were this weekend instead of next weekend. I don’t know if I can take another week of listening to people talk about deflated balls.

Dear Parenthood, I am going to miss you.  I may even start all over from Season 1 to see the shows I missed and try to pretend it’s not over yet.

Dear Socks, I will never understand where you disappear to?  Every time I do laundry I am missing the matches to at least 5 pairs.  It makes no sense.  And it drives me insane.

Dear The Baby in American Sniper, I saw the clips and yeah, you look beyond fake.  Too funny!

Friday’s Letters 36

Dear ipsy, You guys should send out notifications when you add new items to the ipsyPoints shop! That would be easier than everyone having to just guess (and FYI there were some new items added last night).

Dear Canadians, I am so sad for you that Target is closing. If you need any Target goodies once they are gone, you just let me know and I will be happy to mail them to you! And also, is it crazy that I am thinking of making a run across the border to check out Canadian Target before they close? I mean we used to go across the border to go to the bars over there when we were 19, so why not cross over for Target?

Dear Radar Online, Okay, we get it, Teresa Giudice is in prison. Do we really need two to three updates a day on how she is managing without her hair extensions? The better question here may be why do I read Radar Online 2-3 times a day?

Dear Oscar Nominated Movies, As usual, I have never seen any of you. I don’t even know if you are all out yet? No matter because I probably wouldn’t have watched even if you were out on DVD. Except for American Sniper. Because Bradley Cooper.

Dear WB, Oh WB, you are something else. LOL. Your latest “thing” is to pretend you are asleep when you get in trouble. “WB did you throw that car?” Boom. Eyes closed, thumb in mouth. It’s hysterical. How you can keep a straight face I will never know.

Dear Door to Door Meat Salesman, I was this close to getting meat from you yesterday. This close. I feel like I should try it at least once to see if it’s as amazing as you tell me it is. And also, maybe I should find out where this meat comes from? That might be good to know.

Dear B, Congrats on winning the Chili Cook-Off at work!  You will have some high standards to live up to next year!

Dear L, I just cannot get over how much you have learned already this year.  Your reading is insane.  So so so impressive.

Dear Starbucks, I am coming to see you think weekend and try this “new” Flat White I am hearing about.  Some people love it, others not so much.  We’ll see!

Dear Parenthood, You are awesome. I can’t believe we only have three episodes left together. I’m going to miss you.

Dear Spark, You are a complete live saver. For reals. However, Starbucks, I do miss you.

Dear L’s, School, I don’t know who was more sad that you didn’t cancel yesterday. Him or I? Probably me because he didn’t realize that most of the other schools in the area did close!

Dear Justin Bieber, You do not look as good in your Calvin’s as Marky Mark.  Sorry. Not happening.

Dear DietBet, The more I looked into you, the less sure I am of my love for you. I have no idea how I thought they’d track this over the internet, but there are so many steps to enter!

Dear The News, Thank you for constant reminders on how to drive in the snow. It’s not like anyone. We live in Michigan so you’d think we’d all be familiar with it, but no one on the roads seems to be.

Dear Garth Brooks, Where have I been? You are awesome. Such a lovely man!

Dear Farrah, OMG your lips!  Even though I think you look crazy, you think so as well and seem to have a sense of humor about it, so I didn’t feel too bad when I giggled at your picture.

Dear Michigan State, O.M.G. I cannot believe you did it. Totally amazing. Ahhhhhh!!!!

Dear Cold Weather, Where did you come from? My goodness it’s freezing out. On he bright side though, my sinuses aren’t killing me, so there is something good about you.

Dear Target, How about you go to 90% off Holiday Clearance soon?  Like tomorrow? That would be great.

Dear L, I do not understand how you can play outside for ages and never get cold.  It makes no sense at all, but you really aren’t cold.  At all!

Dear Baxter and Buddy, I love your new Target Dollar Spot winter jackets.  I know Buddy hates it, but I think you both look very handsome.

Dear Gingerbread Houses, I guess we ran out of time before Christmas and never ended up making you.  It looks like we will be making winter cottages instead of gingerbread houses.  Oh well!

Dear B, No, we really are wearing matching pajamas next year.  For real.

Dear New Year’s Eve, You aren’t what you used to be huh?  Back when I was more fun, I used to sleep in and then spend half the day getting ready and pre-drinking for the festivities.  This year I went shopping and found Elf on the Shelf clothes at 70% off and was OMGSOEXCITED about it. Times have changed.

Dear Christmas Tree, How have you only dropped like 5 needles in the four weeks since we got you?  It’s amazing.  And I know it’s not because you are being watered on a regular basis.  That is so not it. I am tempted to leave you up just to see how long you last.  It’s like having a fake Christmas tree!

Dear Awards Season, I am ready for you to start! I’m not too concerned with who wins what, but I do like seeing everyones dresses!

Dear Christmas, You are fun, SO FUN, but I am glad you only happen once a year because you are also exhausting.

Dear Starbucks, How about you sell out of all the mugs I like before I end up buying another one? Thanks!

Dear Santa (and B), You guys did awesome this year. It was so fun having surprise presents to open. That rarely happens!

Dear L, You are a PS4 playing machine. I am impressed that you have taken to the controller so quickly. You are a true gamer now ;).

Dear The Interview, Without all this controversy I never would have watched you right away. I can’t say that you were a great movie, but you were tolerable.

Dear Facebook, You are the best around the holidays.  I love seeing how everyone “does” Christmas.  So many fun posts!

Dear WB, I don’t think you had a clue what went down yesterday, but I think you had a good time.

Dear My Cousin, You throw a great Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.  Complete with themed decorations and prizes for “best” sweater.  I love it!  Let’s do it again next year!

Dear Santa, Thanks for making this my 6 year-olds BEST.CHRISTMAS.EVER.  He doesn’t think anything is ever going to top this year and he might be right, but I’ll always remember the look on his face when he opened up his presents and was genuinely excited about each and every one.  Ahhh, I love it!
