Friday's Letters....The One with the Awkward Week and the Gourmet Trash

Dear Coworker...I'm really sorry I made things awkward when you went in for a handshake and I went in for a hug. That was uncomfortable. And for the record, you look like a hugger. Dear heels I wore in Chicago...While you are totally fabulous, you were a really, really bad idea. Nothing says "I don't belong here" than a girl in heels, in the snow. Also, nothing says "pneumonia" like a girl in heels, in the snow. Dear  Nasty Gal....I love your clothes but reallllly hate your store name. I can't explain the level of embarrassment I felt when my boss saw a return slip in my laptop bag. I immediately wanted to explain that I was returning a sports tank top....and not a mesh onesie with nipple cutouts. Dear Danielle....I Loved-with-a-capital-L our mani date last night. 

Dear The Midwest....You really know how to treat a girl. Dear Ashley...I really thought you were getting better at this whole cooking thing however, after setting off your own fire alarm twice in one week whilst toasting an English muffin, we might have to re-evaluate your progress. Dear Boy at the Gym.....I'm sorry that every time you looked my way this week I immediately looked in the opposite direction. I hope you know that means I think you're cute....in the land of 12 year old girls....and homeschoolers. 
xoxo
Dear Hallway...When I got off the elevator the other night I thought "gee, someone's dinner smells amazing!" And then I turned the corner to see that I was indeed picking up the scent of "trash pickup day." It was in that moment I realized I have a very bland diet. Dear Run With Me....even though I haven't been able to spend much time with you lately, I somehow almost signed several work emails this week "XO, A"....because this week clearly needed more awkward moments with my coworkers. 

Speaking of  XO....obsessed

What's everyone doing this weekend?!?
Happiest of Fridays.to.you. 
XO, A

Do you have a spice rack? ($20 at Target!) It'll change your (cooking) life! : )

Because I live in the middle of nowhere, aka The LPV, I have never heard of Nasty Girl. Why oh why did they name it that? Dumb.

Katie said...

Haha you are hilarious. Love the handshake story and oh my word. I have been tempted to buy from Nasty Gal but I can just think of my mother's reaction seeing that store's name so I haven't. oh and that beyonce song is on repeat for me. like can't stop won't stop listening.

I hope things work out for you and gym boy ;)
