Friday’s Letters 10

Dear MSU, I’m so ready for the game tonight! Again, let’s not make this a close one. I should be used to this by now, but I never will be!

Dear Groupon, Your “Banana Bunker” post on Facebook yesterday?  Stop it.  I was dying.

Dear L, I am so glad you are feeling better!!!  And I think you are even happier about it than I am!

Dear Giant Giraffe at Home Goods, I can’t believe no one has bought you yet.  It’s been weeks and weeks. And yet you remain.  If you go on Yellow Tag Clearance I might just have to rescue you. No idea how I would get you home since you are about 9 feet tall, but it’d fun to watch me try to cram you in my car!

Dear The Longest Train Track Set-Up Ever, I can’t help but wonder how long you are going to remain up in my hallway?  I’ve tripped over you about a dozen times so far, yet the kids insist you remain up.  I should probably just get used to you!

Dear WB,I would love to know how you not only found videos of people unboxing toys on YouTube Kids, but also why you are so interested in them?  I just don’t get it.

Dear Coca-Cola, Do you really work as a hair treatment?  I don’t know, but I am certainly going to find out.

Dear My Sock Drawer, Why were you such a mess? Oh I know why.  Me. But I finally realized that my plan of saving all the socks till they could be reunited again didn’t work.  The socks never reappear once they are lost.   Ever.  You look way better now!

Dear Frozen, Thank you for being the one movie that my kids can always agree on and will always sit nicely together and watch.  I owe you one Elsa and Anna!

Dear West Virginia, Did you know there was a game last night?  I bet you’d like a do-over on that!



Friday’s Letters 6

Dear March Madness, Day 1 is in the books and you did not disappoint! I am looking forward to seeing what Day 2 brings. Hopefully it’s a Michigan State win!

Dear My Brother, Happy early birthday!  And no, the pet resort hasn’t called me.  Your dogs are fine.

Dear WB, I know you think you are ready to give up naps, but you are NOT. No, you are NOT.  If you were ready to be done you wouldn’t be so crabby every afternoon.

Dear Abercrombie Kids, Why are the sleeves so long on all your shirts / jackets?  No seriously.  No 7 year old has arms that long do they? Can someone explain this???

Dear Jamberry Wraps, Although I didn’t do the best job ever applying you, I am shocked to report that you are still on my nails and look exactly the same as you did right after I put you on.  Amazing.

Dear Haute Look, Are you ever going to have another beauty bag for sale?  They were always so good, but there hasn’t been one in ages.  Bring them back!

Dear Spring, Welcome!  We have been waiting for you here in Michigan.  Let’s warm this weather up again!

Dear L, I can’t wait to see your Spring School Pictures!  I know you saw a picture of the outdoor scene they were using, but no, they were not actually taking them outside, so don’t worry, you didn’t miss out ;).

Dear My Local Target,  I know I haven’t been in all week, but I am okay, I swear.  I’ll come see you soon enough.


Friday’s Letters 4

Dear March Madness, It’s nearly time! I am getting way too excited for the Selection Show on Sunday. As usual though I will pick my Spartans to go way too far and will not even come close to winning, but oh well.

Dear L, Allright, fine, you can skip the Chuggington stage show. The look you gave me when I asked you if you wanted to go made your answer clear. LOL. But I know you’d like it if you went, I know it.

Dear Snow, I am happy you are melting, I really am, but now we need to get everything to turn green. Because it looks like a mess right now!

Dear WB, Tonight I am going to count how many times you get out of your bed. I bet the number is insanely high. However, I still have to stop myself from laughing every time because your excuses are so funny.

Dear LinkedIn, I didn’t realize it, but I guess March marks the 4th birthday of Ramblings of a Suburban Mom. Happy Birthday blog!

Dear “Unsubscribe” Button, So I click Unsubscribe to uhh, unsubscribe from getting e-mails from certain places and what do you do? You send me an e-mail letting me know I have been unsubscribed. Thanks for that additional unnecessary e-mail.

Dear Me, Go to bed earlier.  And drink more water.

Dear Peeps Milk, Where are you hiding at?  Not at Target or Kroger that’s for sure.  Are you going to make me hunt you down at WalMart?  Because I will.

Dear Stupid Dress, You are still white and gold.


Friday’s Letters 26

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.


Friday’s Letters 9

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!


Friday’s Letters 12

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!


Friday’s Letters 9

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!
