Friday’s Letters

July 20, 2012

Wow. Friday again. 
The start of another week for me, but I have so much that I am thankful for. Sometimes when my life is getting extra hectic I have to sit back and reflect on what I am blessed to have in my life. 
Just when I think that I can’t get my bills straight, that everyone is buying a home but me and I am stuck in apartment living, that I have zero vacation time let alone vacation money, I have to say I am pretty lucky. 

Isn’t that beautiful? There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!

Dear Bubba, I love it when we do cute things that I see in movies. Does that make sense? Hahaha. But when it’s late at night and I asked for you to walk me across the street with Mochi to go get Yogurtland, (and you do!!) I am on cloud nine. Walking around, holding your hand, having Mochi by our side…I love it. It’s straight out a movie!

Dear Work- I wish we could just get along. All those mornings of getting up and getting dressed in corporate clothes…I miss nannying. These past two days of watching the girls has been so much fun. Except when both times we went to playgrounds (outdoor and indoor) I injure myself. Scooter burns on the elbows, thats a nice way to put it at Scooter’s Jungle when you are sliding down the biggest inflatable slide ever and scrape you elbows on the plastic. A cute name for the tan being ripped off your skin. 



Dear Gym, we are becoming better friends each week. 
I love to fight you, but I love the results. Work like a beast, look like a beauty!
The squats are actually really fun. I feel strong after a good set and am amazed at the weight at I can lift.
That would be a whole 40 lbs. Boom.

Friday’s Letters

It’s Friday, ya’ll!!

Dear Momma, It was so fun having you visit me for two days. I am so thankful I won an iPad, yes I won an iPad, and was able to give it to you! You were so happy playing around with your new toy, it brought tears to my eyes.
Dear Technology, you are so amazing. My momma made all my childhood videos onto DVDs then put them on a hard drive for me. That was incredibly special watching those tonight! 
Dear Mochi, you are quite the cutest dog ever. You run so funny, I constantly threw the ball outside so I can see you waddle back to me. It’s like your butt is too heavy and your back legs are too tired for how fast your front legs move. 
Dear Magic Mike, you sir are going to be me summer hot guy movie. Maybe the best hot guy movie of all time. It blows my mind that it’s actually coming out this year, I have been waiting for awhile for this!
Dear Blog Buddies, thank you so much for writing your weekly Fly Away Friday posts. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading each one! If you want to be added to the list, just sent me a tweet or email or facebook message, or snail mail or carrier pigeon my way. 
Dear Pure Barre, I am so thankful you kick my booty and make me cry during class. This is no joke! But come summer, I will be thanking you EVEN MORE!

Happy Friday everyone!
Make sure you add yourself to my GFC to follow me daily:)

    I have heard so many great things about Pure Barre. I need to find a class near me! I wonder if it exists out in Germany? LOL, doubtful. I will be trying it once I move back to the states- even if it is a year from now!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
