Friday's Letters....Sweatpants, Mind Birds and Blates

hahahaha so true!
Dear October....If it weren't for work, I'd be really excited about you. But seeing as work owns my soul lately, I'm excited about your cousin, November. Dear Candace...Our blate was the absolute highlight of my week. I foresee many fun adventures in our future! Dear Candace again....hopefully you feel the same or else that is going to be a really creepy and awkward letter.  Dear man that runs with his dog on the street-light-less, side-walk-less road at 6am.....Could you at least put your dog on the inside so he doesn't get hit? I get so nervous every time I drive by you.

Dear Sweatpants....Thank you for existing. Dear any potential future boyfriends reading....I swear they are sexy sweatpants. Dear the dude that beeped at me THREE times because I was turning left and you wanted to turn right...I'm sorry you're all Gen-Y and apparently don't understand that you may have to wait sometimes for your turn. If you only knew how many mind-middle-fingers I was throwing up at you. (they were all in my head as ladies don't actually give the bird). Dear Mom...you are welcome. Dear this quote....you are one of my favorites:

We seem to value our time so little, that we find our worth based on how little of it we have. In other words, we've idolized “being busy,” and confused it with being “important.” You can be busy but unimportant, just as you can be important but not busy. 

What's everyone up to this weekend?!
Link up with the creator of Friday's letters to share yours!
XO, A

where to start ... a) when is OUR blate? ;) I think we need a skype or facetime blate ... at least until we can have an IRL blate. b) I get so scared when people are walking on the side of the road (no sidewalk) when I'm driving. Like I'm afraid I'm just randomly going to lose control of the car and hit them. Odd, I know. c) Sweatpants are amazeballs. Ken hates them. I still wear them. I win. :) d) Kids today are so selfish and dumb. However, I totally would have flipped him the bird. Because Northern ladies DO actually give the bird ;)

Jen said...

That whole last paragraph just made me laugh out loud.
Especially the Gen-Y one. except I'm usually the impatient one freaking out in the back because of my road rage and constantly being in a hurry to get absolutely nowhere :)

Katie said...

sweatpants and blates are always good.
