Friday’s Letters 5

Dear Long Weekend, You couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time. I love you!

Dear Letterman, I haven’t watched you recently, but I will miss you. I always loved those bits you did with kids. Those were too funny!

Dear 1st Graders, That was quite a performance last night! You guys all nailed it.

Dear Baxter and Buddy, I do get (SUPER) annoyed when you bark only when WB is trying to fall asleep, but you two really are the best. I know you are just watching out for us.

Dear L, Your summer plans are cracking me up. I think we’ll be able to squeeze in 1) Toys R Us, 2) Chuck E Cheese and 3) the water park sometime in the next three months ;).

Dear Facebook, I don’t know what I did to make you think I was interested in this creepy clown picture, but I most certainly am NOT. No. Not at all. I really hope that doesn’t pop-up in my feed again. PLEASE.

Dear My Neighbors, Thanks for everything! You guys rock! Well, most of you do anyway. LOL.

Dear Cable TV, I think you and I are going to be meeting up again quite soon.  Apple TV hasn’t been working too well for me lately so I think it’s time.

Dear Me, Go to bed earlier.  Seriously.

Dear Orange is the New Black, Get back on my tv now!  I really cannot wait for you to return to Netflix.  Only a few more weeks!  Let the binge watching begin.  So much for going to bed early.


Friday’s Letters 11

Dear Friday, It took you a long time to arrive this week, but I am very very happy to see you.

Dear Headaches, You suck. And Dear Allergies That Give Me Headaches, I hate you too. The older I get, the worse the allergies get. In a few years I won’t be able to leave the house all Spring.

Dear Old Friends, I love when we talk after months and months of playing phone tag, traveling and just being busy and don’t even miss a beat.

Dear My Cousin / Aunt, I am so glad you share the Lilly for Target love. Obviously this craziness runs in the family.

Dear Buddy, Sleeping on your Dad’s pillow is just fine right now, but when he gets home and realizes that his pillow smells like dog and you won’t move? Well, that will be another story.

Dear WB and L, Speaking of sleeping, let’s sleep in this weekend! Please!

Dear Technology, You are mind blowing! I can’t believe I am actually older than personal computers and cell phones. The boys are going to think I am a dinosaur when I tell them this.

Dear WB, Thanks for being such a good boy in the PTO Room this week. Just a warning – there’s more of that to come.

Dear Costco, I don’t know what I didn’t know this sooner, but you have the best pull over hoodies ever. I can only hope they are still there next time I go back!

Dear Telemarketers, Uhh no. I do not want an extended warranty on a lease car I turned in 5 YEARS AGO. But I am certain we will get another chance to discuss this considering that you call on the regular (and also insist you’ve never called me before). Update your list! That is not.my.car.anymore. Funny thing is we haven’t gotten this call on either one of our two cars that we do have right now. But that’s okay because we don’t want those super amazing extended warranties either.

Dear B, While I don’t necessarily like when you are away, I LOVE having the garage to myself and being able to park however I want.

Dear Tiger and Lindsey, I am sad you two broke up. I don’t know why, but I thought you were going to make it.

Dear Brick Seek, I love you. You have helped me find a bunch of amazing Lilly items that I never would have located without you.

Dear Chipotle, That’s all that in your guacamole? I really thought there was more. And yes, I know it’s extra.

Dear L’s Swimming Class, You continue to be one of the highlights of my week. L loves it, WB loves and it Mama gets to sit and drink her coffee with a magazine.

Dear Eric Church, I always thought you were the one who sang “Take Me To Church”. No idea why.  None.

Dear WB, I’ll never understand why you watch videos in other languages.  I know it’s Thomas the Train, but you don’t speak or understand Russian? Yet you list so so intently.  I can only wonder what you are thinking.

Dear The Drop-Off Lane, In some weird way, I am going to miss you this summer.

Dear L, I don’t know how you are going to sit through school all day knowing that your favorite cousin is coming into town in a few hours!  I am so excited for you!


Friday’s Letters 33

Dear Mom, Now I know why you don’t love sewing. It’s hard work!

Dear WB Please, please, please let’s get rid of this cold or whatever it is that is making your nose SO stuffy and making you so crabby! For the sake of both of us! Please!

Dear My Neighbors (well most of them anyway), You are the best! What do people without fabulous neighbors do?  I don’t know and I never want to find out.

Dear “The Closet”, Now that even B has mentioned how messy you are I guess I need to get you cleaned up. I am not looking forward to this.

Dear Target, Even I think I have visited you a few too many times in the last week.  I need to sort through this Lilly stuff and see what I need to keep and what needs to get returned and stop all this!

Dear The Next Target Designer Collaboration, Please don’t happen again for a LONG time. Or better yet, be a designer I don’t like. I don’t think I am ready for another round of this madness anytime soon.

Dear My Computer Update, Thank you so much for making all of my passwords disappear.  No idea what any of those are. How do people remember this kind of stuff?

Dear B, You are going to miss so much fun this summer!  Like the garage sale, planting ALL those flowers and a bunch of other amazing chores that need to be done.  I know you’ll be sad to miss them, but we will carry on all by ourselves.

Dear L, I love seeing what you bring home from the Ticket Store at school.  So much fabulous random stuff in that store.  I would have loved that when I was a kid!

Dear That Mom in Baltimore, Lady, you rock.  You totally 100% rock.

Dear Chess, I have never once considered you to be an Olympic sport, but if you end up making it in the Winter Olympics, we all know I will end up watching.

Dear This Weekend, I absolutely cannot wait for you!  I’m hoping for a good mixture of chores and fun, but I will happily put those chores off till next week if it works out that way.



Friday’s Letters 4

Dear Snow, Really? It looked like a blizzard outside the other day. You know it’s nearly May right? Stop it.

Dear KEEP Collective, I cannot wait for your Summer line to launch! Just a few more weeks!

Dear L, I loved hearing about your day at work yesterday.  It’s not always quite as fun as yesterday was though ;).

Dear WB,  I was hoping you’d take a nap yesterday so I could get some stuff done.  Too bad, I feel asleep with you which meant I got nothing done.  #fail

Dear Target + Lilly, Pretty sure I am still tired from Sunday.  Happily though, all my Target.com orders have shipped!  And I have my fingers crossed people will return a few more of the items I had my eye on!

Dear Bruce Jenner, That sucks that you have people camped out in bushes trying to take picture of you inside your house.  That’s just over the line.

Dear Baby Foot, I am both excited and terrified for you to start working.

Dear L and WB, Thank you both for doing so well at the dentist / doctor this week.  It makes life so much easier!  You guys rock.

Dear My Internet, You have been horrible lately.  I don’t know what’s up, but I need to get it figured out.

Dear YouTube, According to my TimeHop, you turned 10 yesterday.  How is that even possible?


Friday’s Letters 17

Dear Find My Phone, You really do work. Why haven’t I used you more? Amazing.

Dear Random Real Estate Lady Who Called Me Yesterday, Uhh no, we do not want to sell our house and I don’t think any of my neighbors do either. Also, where on earth did you get my CELL phone number from?

Dear Duchess Kate, I cannot believe people are going to stand outside the hospital while you are in labor. I cannot even imagine how stressed that would make me!

Dear B, I am so glad you are home.

Dear Jimmy Fallon, Where is this Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream you supposedly have? Not in Michigan that’s for sure.

Dear Target + Lily Pulitzer, Stop teasing me with all your fabulousness and just go on sale already.

Dear Allergies, I hate you. So much.

Dear L, I love seeing the outfits you pick out for school. They totally aren’t what I would have selected for you, but that’s the point. You pick them and you love them! And I love that.

Dear Winter, You better be over. I put ALL out winter coats, hats, gloves, snow pants, etc. away yesterday and I am NOT bringing them back out anytime soon.

Dear The Tailor, Thank you for not only making B’s uniform look perfect, but also for knowing enough about it to know that he didn’t bring all of the right patches for it and going ahead and fixing it on your own. We totally owe you one!

Dear Fitbit, Uhh, thanks for the update that the fitbit Charge I gave away in a contest on here a while ago never shipped. Here I was thinking it was all set. Nope. On backorder. Till June.

Dear Friday, I thought you were yesterday and that today was Saturday.  That’d be a no.

Dear Rain, I think you are taking this April showers bring May flowers thing a little too far.

Dear Tom Izzo, You are a class act.  I may will cry if you ever leave Michigan State.

Dear The Masters, As usual, I am oddly excited about watching you on tv.  I even checked the standings last night after the first round was over. #idontevengolf

Dear B, Sometimes you’re the best.

Dear WB, Some people count sheep at bedtime to help them fall asleep, but I realized last night that “catch snacks”.  You mumble something, start reaching up and grabbing these imaginary snacks out of the air, “eat” them and then say “I got you snacks”.  LOL.  Too funny.

Dear Emoji’s, I love all the new options!!!  It’s about time!

Dear L, Ahh, I can’t believe how quickly you are growing up.  Seriously, 1st grade is almost over.  What? Slow down time!

Dear Jimmy Fallon and Madonna and the Roots, Anytime the classroom instruments come out I know it’s going to be good and you didn’t disappoint!

Dear Jimmy Fallon’s Puppies, I have always loved watching your predications, but I love you even more now that you selected Michigan State to win the Final 4!!

Dear POPSUGAR, Can we get some April box spoilers already?? Come on! Please!!!

Dear Toys R Us, Please have Mystery Surprise Eggs today so I don’t have to go to 20 other places to find them.

Dear L, Your new shoes might be the coolest thing ever.  For real. I want a pair for me. #neonorange

Dear Everyone on Spring Break, Have fun and be safe! I am only a little jealous you are in that warm weather and I am here watching it rain ;).

Dear The Flu, You suck. I can only hope we have paid our dues for the year and won’t be seeing you again anytime soon. The last week and a half has been brutal!

Dear Matt & Brother Orange, I don’t even know what to say other than this may be the coolest and most incredible story I have read in a long time.

Dear WB, I love listening to you count before you fall asleep.  I don’t know what you are counting and you don’t always count in the correct order, but it’s adorable.

Dear Group Texts, You never disappoint.  And did you know you could name group texts?  Thank you to my 70+ year old uncle for teaching us all this.

Dear My Neighbors, I know you think I am nuts with all the packages I get.  I’ll explain subscription boxes better next time I see you!

Dear Zappos, Once again you amaze me.  I order Wednesday night. You deliver Thursday.  Amazing.


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.
