Friday’s Letters 5

Dear This Week, I am so glad you are over. So glad.

Dear Facebook Quizzes, Why do I feel the need to take every single one of you?

Dear The Olympics, I am ready for you to start!  Bring on the swimming and gymnastics!

Dear The Pressure Cooker, You were a little scary last night. I was pretty nervous (okay super nervous) when the pressure was being released. But all turned out well.

Dear Dave & Busters, Thanks for being one place everyone on the family can always agree on.

Dear Nordstrom, Only you and your #nsale can make me think buying kid’s boots in 100-degree weather is totally normal.

Dear The New Facebook Pages, It’s going to take me a minute to get you figured out, but I am sure I will end up liking you just fine.

Dear Baxter, I miss you. So does Buddy.  SO much. 


So What Wednesday… 8

This week I am saying so what if…

~I am so over road construction.
~I don’t feel like doing much of anything this week.
~I think my cousin should be on The Bachelorette! She’d be so perfect.
~My Kroger has officially launched the “ClickList” and I cannot wait to grocery shop. Well, grocery “pick-up”.
~B and I went through the kitchen cabinets last night and I felt like we were on an episode of hoarders.  Me being the hoarder.
~I am scared for B’s bills from his hospital stay to start coming in.
~I am still scared to use my pressure cooker.  Maybe not scared, but intimidated.

That’s it from here. What are you saying so what to this week?


Friday’s Letters 1

Dear The Doctors and Nurses at the Hospital, Thanks for fixing B all up and making him better!

Dear Pokemon Go, I don’t know that I “get” you, but L thinks you are amazing. Plus, he doesn’t complain anymore about running errands with me because he can play while we are out and about. So basically I love you.

Dear Target Clearance, As usual, thanks for the great deals.

Dear Reddit Match, I hope you like the gift I sent. I tried. I really did!

Dear My Cousin, Eeek!  This is the big weekend!  You’re getting MARRIED! Congrats!

Dear Camp, Thank you for being so much fun for my boys. They love going so much!

Dear Costco, I don’t know why you had winter jackets out for sale in July, but I’ll admit, I bought some for the boys.  Because when I need jackets for them in November, you’ll only have swimsuits.

Dear L and W, I LOVE that you have been having sleepovers in L’s room.  I have been hoping this would happen ever since L got bunkbeds and it’s finally here.  So so so sweet!


So What Wednesday… 6

This week I am saying so what if…

~I spent way too much time yesterday looking at Prime Day deals I knew I was never going to buy.
~I hate that Baxter is getting old.
~I was way too excited when I saw that Chelsea from Teen Mom is pregnant.
~The Tooth Fairy that comes to our house is all over the place with her monetary gifts. Could be $0.25. Could be $1. Could be $2. Could be $20. You just never know what the Tooth Fairy has in her wallet.
~I only know one Pokemon character. Pikachu. Until yesterday I thought one of the characters was actually named Pokemon.
~My Kroger looks to be launching a grocery pick-up service and I am FREAKING out about how fabulous this is going to be. Sign me up. Like yesterday.
~I still don’t know what to get my Reddit Christmas in July match!

That’s it from here. What are you saying so what to this week.


Friday’s Letters 9

Dear Instagram, Hmm, I didn’t realize you had that incoming message request feature. Sorry to whomever I haven’t replied to in 22 weeks.

Dear The Secret Life of Pets, I hope you are as good as I am expecting you to be!

Dear The New Radio Station in Town, You are everything. It’s all anyone can talk about and I don’t blame them one bit. Way better than the sports talk that used to be on.

Dear My 4th of July Decorations, You are now Olympic decorations.

Dear Paw Patrol, How about you bring that summer tour to my town?  My kids (even L would be down) wouldn’t mind seeing that Paw Patroller roll into town.

Dear My Thumb, I have noticed that, if I don’t move you, you don’t hurt. Sounds good to me. #textinginjury

Dear Instagram, I must say, I am not down with your changes. I hope soon you will give people the option to switch back to old view where it sorted by time and not by popularity or whatever the new way is!

Dear The Tigers, Amazing win last night! I was not expecting that at all.

Dear The Cider Mill, You are more fun in the summer than in the fall. And less crowded. And bee free!

Dear B, We can’t wait to see you.

Dear Rain, Please come visit us. PLEASE!

Dear The Olympic Trials: I love you.

Dear The Starbucks Barista, Thank you for giving me a Venti Iced Coffee when I only ordered (and paid for) a Tall because you liked my “party” nails.

So What Wednesday 3

swwbig_zps16efcc06

This week I am saying so what if…

~L asked what I was watching the other night and then just about rolled his eyes at me when I explained what the show Big Brother was. If he only knew that was one of the more respectable shows I watch.
~I am super excited that Dating Naked starts tonight! Not even trying to explain that show to L.
~I want it to rain. Like yesterday. Or like last week.
~I was excited to see them putting out the school supplies at Target yesterday. I don’t want the kid’s to go back to school or anything, I just like school supplies.
~I am kind of obsessed with the #freeosk at Sam’s Club.
~I always stop and pick up change I see on the street / at a store / in a parking lot.  Always. A penny is a penny!
~My Summer POPSUGAR Special Edition Box still isn’t here yet!!!!!!!

~Good evening! Not too much happening around here this weekend. It was HOT! We got the house cleaned up, laundry done, grocery shopping finished and the boys got in some pool time. A pretty solid weekend really.

~Has anyone else been watching (LOVING) the Olympic Trials? Gymnastics, Swimming, Diving, I love it all. And L (my oldest) is a fan too. He watched some of the Men’s Gymnastics with me and some of the diving and was in awe.

~If your Summer POPSUGAR box shipped late, you should be seeing a surprise in your mailbox soon. I have no idea what it is, but I can see something in my FedEx account coming from POPSUGAR. I think some people got e-mails about it, but I didn’t. Anyways, it’s 1.1lbs and I will report back as soon as I hear what this “Surprise Gift” is!

~If you missed it earlier, the July 2016 Serendipity by Little Lace Box is on sale.  Single boxes are $12.99 (and now auto-renew), but you can also purchase an annual (aka 6-box) subscription for $59.94.  This would make a fabulous graduation gift!

That’s it from here!  Hope you had a great weekend!
