my weekend

my weekend by vanessanelson featuring circle tops

I had a great week and weekend.  I got to celebrate my birthday (pictures to come) and received some amazing gifts through out the week thanks to my wonderful friends and family!
On Saturday we drove up to SLC for my birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant in the entire world Buca Di Beppo.  So good...I'm still dreaming about it.
We spent the night in Tooele so we could be up there on Sunday for my cousin Meagan's talk in church.  She was amazing and wonderful.  I also ordered the first season of the show Ghostwriter which was one of my very favorites as a kid.  It's still just as good as I remember it.  Anyone else watch that show ever?  Did anyone else also have a raging crush on Alex? These are questions I need answers to.  I am also currently obsessed with Kelly Clarkson's new amazing!

I hope you all have/had an amazing Halloween!!!

Friday Letters

Dear Halloween,
We've had our ups and downs.  Mostly downs because you steal all my birthday thunder.  I thought I was over it but then I was writing this and remembered it all over again.
Kindly disregard this letter.

Dear Original Flavor Oatmeal,
You are like the last girl left in the bar....all the other good ones are taken so....I guess we'll pick you.
It's not personal.

Dear Ghostwriter,
You are the best show.  I will be spending the weekend watching Season 1 over and over trying to recapture my I don't need a therapist.

Dear Fore Fathers,
We ALL could have had British accents if you hadn't of thrown all that tea in the water.
Thanks a lot.

Dear 11:11,
You owe me 7 unicorns, a Hogwarts acceptance letter, a hundred kisses from that boy I still have a crush on,  and independent wealth.  Thanks in advance.

Dear Dad,
I told you not to play against me in Words With Friends....

Dear readers,
Have a wonderful and SAFE Halloween weekend!!!

my weekend

my weekend by vanessanelson featuring cashmere socks

Was feeling under the weather this weekend and had an awful couple of days at work (lot's of drama, lot's of tears) so I spent most of my time vegging out and watching great movies and TV (anyone else watch the show Samantha Who? It was completely brilliant and funny...discovered the whole series on Instant Netflix...what a gem)
Here's looking forward to a much better week (it's my birthday tomorrow!) with more laughter (because it's my birthday!) and less tears (I'm having a birthday!)

Hope y'all had a great week!

Friday Letters

Dear Cold/Flu bug,
You're the worst.

Dear Starbucks baristas,
I'm not sure when you think I'll be drinking my beverage...but I can promise you it won't be at 6:00 in the evening when it finally cools off.  Can we do something about this?  My tongue hurts.

Dear Pretzeltime,
Thanks for reminding me what regret tastes like.

Dear light switches located directly next to the garbage disposal switch,
This was never a good idea.  I always have to cautiously flick one of you on and it's never the right one.  And I end up terrifying myself.  Let's not do this anymore.

Dear Miley Cyrus,
It's pretty presumptuous to think that the U.S.A invited you to the party now isn't it?
Try again,

Dear Italy/Greece,
Thank you for returning my parents back to us safely.

Dear C.P.S.
Thanks for not taking away my siblings while I was watching them.  I know it was touch and go there for a bit.
You rock,

Dear Birthday,
Please be nice to me.  I'm a little nervous about turning 25....
At least it's my golden one!

Dear readers,
Have a lovely weekend!!!

Friday Letters

Dear people in the Febreeze commercials,
What was going through your mind when someone stopped you on the street, blindfolded you, and told you to breathe deeply?  What part of that doesn't spell rape?
Just curious,

Dear 19 year old girl I did a consultation on who is MARRYING a 70 year old,
First of all...I volunteer to love you even though your daddy (or grandaddy?) didn't.  Second...please stop.  Third, while I do appreciate the romance of meeting in a long term care facility you were working at...please stop.  Hold on I had to go vomit in my mouth a little...because NOTHING is worth having to wake up to please just STOP STOP STOP.
Your make up looked awesome though,

Dear Dora the Explorer,
You are a bilingual 5 year old but you can't see the orange tree?'s right there.  Maybe instead of running around with a monkey wearing should go to the eye doctor.
Also stop shouting at me,

Dear people with dogs,
Just because I'm also out walking my dog, does not mean I want to stop and have a 10 minute conversation on the side of the road with you about dogs.  I would just like to take my severely anti-social dog home before he has a panic attack.
And no....our dogs are not "friends"

Dear work,
No.  I would not like to come into work while I'm on vacation.  Did you really just call to ask me that?  Look at your life.  Look at your choices.

Dear readers,
Have an amazing weekend!  And thank you thank you thank you for reading :)

*note: I edited the check box titles at the end of each blog post.  Now you can either "like" it or let me know I "ain't no randy jackson" which is a phrase I picked up after watching Late Night Hashtags on Jimmy Fallon....

Which I think is amazing and hysterical.
