Friday's Letters

Hello Friday... I've been waiting for you for quite a long time. This week has been extremely intense and I'm ready to finally relax and unwind just a bit.

How are all of you doing? Did you welcome Friday with open arms too?

Well those that know me well know that I love writing little letters. From an early age my mom drilled into me about the importance of thank you cards. At age 10, I wasn't so thrilled, but now I am very thankful for that skill/etiquette. (Speaking of letters, here is a bunch of super cute stationary!)

I have a few letters to write today....

{ Dear Sister }
I can hardly believe you are 19 today! Where on earth has time gone? I still remember sharing pink bubble gum with my 1st grade class to celebrate the day you were born. Although we had our off stages when you liked barbies and I liked boys, I am so thankful you're my friend and we have so much in common now. Thank goodness you gave up on those barbies.

Girly movies, painting fingernails, sharing juicy secrets, teasing, and keeping up with those sassy Kardashians is way more fun when you're by my side. I love you, and I'm excited to celebrate YOU this weekend.

{ Dear Zumba }
Thanks for kicking my tush last night. After 2.5 weeks of not being able to workout, you sure got me up to speed pretty quick. It sure takes a lot of energy to motivate myself to spend time with you, but I know you are a big key in making me look fantastic in my wedding dress... so you win.

{ Dear Gross Spiders }
You sure thought you would be pretty funny hiding in my sink drain this morning, didn't you? What a jerk. Then I bet you had so much fun that you called up your HUGE buddy to wait for me at my front door. Don't worry, karma comes in the form of the Orkin man's planned visit next Tuesday. It was nice knowing you, suckaaasss!

{ Dear Huge Laundry Pile }
Can't I just be a lazy bum for a while? Why can't you wash and fold yourself? Well, you are first on my agenda, and no matter how much I don't want to mess with you... I want to stop thinking about you even more. Not to mention I really need to get better at this whole domesticated thing before I become some handsome man's wife. I'm sure both he and I would appreciate it.

{ Dear Engagement Photos }
I would prefer that you are easier and less nerve racking than I imagine. If you could possibly capture genuine sweet moments and our personalities in the most flattering light, that would be incredible. Fingers crossed....

{ Dear Future Hubs }
Can you please come home already? I know you are working super hard being a fancy business man in Florida, but I miss your face. And your muscley arms. Thanks for your sweet good morning texts and for talking to me on a phone date late at night... even when there is a time difference and you're sleepy. You're the best. I'm secretly hoping for a rainy evening so we can watch movies and be cozy. Can't wait to catch up and do life with you this weekend.


Wishing you all quite the lovely weekend. Engagement photo and weekend update coming next week!
