Friday Letters


Dear Future Offspring: I just figured out your first Halloween costume. You are totally going to be the old guy from Up. And I promise by the time you arrive (several years into the future) that your father will have finally bought me a precious puppy to be your Halloween side kick. And I am sure he will love squirrels.

Dear Forks: Umm, where have you all gone? I can seriously only find six forks of you out of our entire silverware set. I may have to break down and buy new silverware. Does anywhere sell just the forks?

Dear Husband: You have been especially handsome this week. I think it's all the manly chores you've been doing around the house. You know, fixing things and what not. In fact, I think you should continue said handsomeness by helping me finish painting our guest room this weekend.

Dear Emily (Dashboard Diary): Thank you so much for giving me the Liebster Blog Award. You are an amazing bloggy friend, and I am so glad to have 'met' you!!

and now for the rules...

1. Choose five up and coming blogs (less than 200 followers) to give the Liebster award to.

2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.
Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.

5. Share five random facts about yourself!

Dear Natalie (Adventures as Mrs Janney): I am so excited to award you the Liebster Award! You are one of my very best friends (ya folks, this was the matron of honor at my wedding), and the story you share with us bloggers is so brave and honest. My favorite post you've ever written is this. It is truly inspiring, and it makes me cry every time. (Side note, I just read it again and now I am tearing up.)

Dear Lindsay (Trial By Sapphire): It is my pleasure to award you the Liebster Award! You were one of my very first bloggy friends, and I am so glad to have met you! I love the positive energy of your blog, your cheerful attitude, and that upcoming vlog of you singing (right? right??).

Dear Michelle (Mish Loving Life): Your blog and your tweets are hysterical. Like you seriously make me laugh out loud. I remember the first time we 'met' on twitter, you had just finished eating only Jamba Juice for 30 days as part of an extreme diet. Not gonna lie, you looked fierce. I seriously considered going to Jamba Juice for dinner. And then I realized I was actually hungry. But seriously girl, I am so glad we are friends. And now you are the proud owner of the Liebster Award!

Dear Natalie (Urban Anthropologie): Your blog is adorable. I love your clothes (like if you decide you don't want any of them, seriously send them my way), I feel a sense of sisterhood over the fact that you can't eat gluten either, and I'm very intrigued by the honey business you referenced starting in one of your previous posts. Do you like, you know, work with bees? (Gonna be honest here, they kinda freak me out). As a result of your total awesomeness, I'd like to award you with the Liebster Award!

Dear Jess (A Heart Full of Frost): I am so glad you stopped by my blog a few weeks ago to say hello so we could become awesome bloggy friends! I love our email exchanges (okay, I know, I really really owe you an email back now), and hearing about life in Australia. I am so excited to send you the Liebster Award!

Dear Bloggy Friends/Readers: To learn more random facts about me, please click on my 'about me' page. I just created that this week, and there are definitely more than 5 random facts on there. There is also a random picture (holla!)

Happy Friday Everyone!

Linking up with Adventures of Newlyweds!
