Friday's Letters

Pin It!

Photobucket

Dearest Lauren - I finally introduced Lucy to Bobo. After realizing that it was not, in fact, her reflection, she fell instantly in love. I'm guessing this will soon be a full-fledged romance.
We can start calling them Lubo, or Bocy...{I kinda like Lubo}

Dear Husband- during our trip to Home Goods last week I picked up a lampshade "I had to have" and you headed off to look at shelves {the reason we were actually there}. The next time you saw me, I was carrying the lampshade AND a large green decorative pillow. You didn't say anything and strolled off to look at the kitchen gadgets. The next time you saw me I might have been carrying the lamp shade, the large green decorative pillow AND a turquoise vase. You used to panic when you saw all of the things I would pick up and hold while shopping browsing. Now, you let me carry these items around in peace until I come to the realization {on my own} that we don't NEED them. When we met at the front of the store ten minutes later, I was empty-handed. You held my hand on the way to the car and reminded me that someday in the not too distant future we'll get to furnish a whole house with pretty things.

Dear ugly-blank-wall-I-mentioned-in-last-week's-letters- actually I have nothing to say to you but I promised Emily I would post pics of the simple shelves we hung to get rid of you. So here goes:
Before:
After:
Funny what two shelves from Target can do to make a house look more like a home. 

Dear Jealous Sound- when Brandon and I heard you had a new album coming out we made out like two teenagers. We've been talking about you all week and have listened to the one new gorgeous song on YouTube several times a day. Can't wait to see you at the Soda Bar tonight. xoxo.

Dear Emily- I read your post and felt so inspired {plus, I would really love to win a grand piano, horse, ipad or really any of the prizes.} You have a great heart, thanks for sharing.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
And if you're going to the So Cal Blogger Meet-up, I'll see ya tomorrow!

Have I posted the picture of Bobo looking at Lucy on the laptop? Its seriously the same. exact. image. Un-flippin-canny. Seriously. I love it. And Lubo? Genius. And the pic you chose to show her. Poor Bobo. Further explanation as to why he poops under the dining room table.

I am glad that Brandon left you alone about the pretties you were coveting. I can't bring Jesse to Home Goods. He hovers. Total helicopter husband. And it ruins my shopping mojo. Drives me batty. I think he does it on purpose to.

Dear Ugly Blank Wall - you're gorgeous! You did a fab. job.

p.s. I wish I had access to target in Canada. I have some serious #CanadaProblems. I am going to run away from home to the US and become a hobo. Not that this is going to solve any of my problems. I just like the word Hobo.

p.p.s. I love that Lucy & Bobo {Lubo} are in love. It make my heart flutter.
