Friday Letters

Dear Newt Gingrich,
I would bet all the money that I will ever have on the fact that you cheat at golf.

Dear Early Bird,
These are the things you get 1) The worm 2) Tired in the middle of the day.
This is just the truth.

Dear Google,
Thank you for existing.  I was curious to know what a horse looks like while it sleeps and was given hours* of hilarious entertainment.
Thanks again,
* actually like 7 minutes.  I have the attention span of a marshmallow.

Dear NyQuil,
You should make an ice cream.  You're welcome for this million dollar idea.
I want a portion.

Dear Don Draper,
You are my favorite human that has ever existed.  You just sit around oozing charm while Pete makes weasel faces every time someone speaks to him.
I love you.

Dear movie watchers,
I am going to write and direct a film based on my life.  It's going to be just me staring at a can of Diet Coke for 2 hours while avoiding productivity.

Dear Readers,
Thank you so much for your kindness and support!  You are all wonderful and I really do adore you!  Thanks for sticking with me.  Have a great weekend!
P.S. Have you followed the Dime Diary yet??

So for today's playlist post I decided to do something a little bit different.  Do you guys remember those stupid quizzes that were all over Facebook a few years ago?  The put your iPod on shuffle and answer the question quizzes?  Well I decided to resurrect one that I took a long time ago.  This one is a little different because the questions are more like "If your life was a movie...what would the soundtrack be?" So let's have some fun shall we?  The rule is have to put your iPod on shuffle and answer the question with the song that comes skipping!  Here we go

Weekend Collage

my weekend

my weekend by vanessanelson featuring a glitter eye makeup

This weekend collage is a bit misleading because I mostly wore yoga pants and a top knot but there were some days (2) that I actually got dressed and wore make up.  The Hunger Games soundtrack is AMAZING by the way.  Even if you didn't read the books or see the movie (basically...even if we aren't friends) you will still love the soundtrack.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Hi guys!  I'm going to try to do better at updating as promised...puppy is still very sick and I almost had a panic attack this morning (probably because once again...I'm not sleeping) BUT here we go anyway.  I don't usually post on Sundays so this will just be a quick update on everything that I've missed over the last week or so.

1.  Mad Men Premiere....
I can't wait to watch it

2. The Hunger Games
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???  AMAZING.  I went to the midnight showing.  My friend Jack and I went and sat in line starting at 4:30.  The people in line are truly the best part about waiting for a midnight showing.  We had so much fun and it was a nice break from the stress I was feeling.  Thanks to my friend Jack for pretty much being the greatest  (as evidenced in this text message...)

3. Far too many people saw my hair like this last week.  For that I am truly sorry.

4.  Do you guys play Draw Something?  Isn't it the greatest?  This is some of my best artwork.  My Dad guessed the word "spoon".  Lolz.

5.  I think I'm going to start making videos for you make up videos and stuff like "vlogging".  How do we feel about this???  Let me know.

6.  My friend Morgan started a fashion blog and I'm already obsessed.  She shows you AMAZING outfits that ANYONE can afford. Genius. Go check it out HERE and follow it!!!  You will not be disappointed.

I don't think I'm forgetting anything.....but my brain is pretty much baby food at this point so....yeah.
Hopefully we all have a great week!

So sorry for the absence everyone but I just thought I'd give you a quick update as to why....
Last Saturday night my little baby (ok yes he's a dog...get over it) went in for surgery to remove an obstruction in his stomach.  He had chewed on a rope toy and he ingested the strings from it and they were all balled up.  After the surgery everything was going good and he came home on Monday (cone and all...he was not happy...)

On Tuesday he was acting really strange and vomiting etc so he went back to urgent care...he was starting to get an infection so he was given a few shots and sent home.  On Wednesday he was acting the same way and he wouldn't eat back to urgent care...they finally gave him a pain patch (he couldn't take any other kind of pain meds bc he wouldn't eat and he would spit the liquid kind out)....he seemed to be doing better.  He still won't eat which is very concerning but we're just taking it one day at a time.
I've learned quite a lot about myself from this experience like I'M PSYCHOTIC for one.  I don't let him out of my sight, when I'm not home I call (multiple times) to check on him, I've slept on the couch every night (usually for only an hour or two) to keep an eye on him (I don't sleep because as I've already pointed out...I'm psychotic).  Needless to say....I've been exhausted.
I'm very sorry for the lack of updates.  Hopefully my dear Colt will be better next week and I'll be back to bothering you every day!!!
I would ask that even though it's silly...if you'd just say a quick prayer or send out some good thoughts our way I would really appreciate it.  He's still in some pain and WILL NOT anything helps.
Thank you all so much!
Can't wait until he's back to laying on the ground of the bathroom to
keep me company while I get ready...

The cat doesn't miss his rambunctious behavior as much....

What a handsome boy....
