Friday Letters

Pin It!

Dear Husband- you finally found the car you've been searching for. A 1968 red and white Bronco. A part of me is relieved that you will finally have an old car to work on again {it's been a whopping five months since you sold the last one}. Your favorite thing in the world is scouring craigslist and auto forums. In fact, I think you recently snapped off the plastic piece on my car window on purpose, so you could have a part to look for online. 
Dear Disney Movies - the other day I got very nostalgic for all of you. Aladdin, Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Lady & The Tramp, Alice in Wonderland, Lion King, The Little Mermaid {you get the point}. On a whim, I decided I was going to purchase the entire collection of all of them on Amazon. They're old so they'll be like five bucks, right? WRONG. They are each between $28 - $48 dollars. I'm sorry, whaaaat? I didn't buy any.

Dear Instagram friends - I posted a picture of my new sparkly nails (Sally Hansen's Nail Effects) on Instagram and mentioned the one lonely freckle on my palm. Who would have known there were so many others (4 to be exact) with a freckle in the same place. It makes me feel like we are in a special club.
Dear Thursday - you marked day SEVEN in a row where I replaced my regularly enormous lunch with a meal replacement smoothie from Jamba Juice. 100% fruit with added protein to keep me filled up until dinner. While Victoria's Secret will not be asking me to model bikinis anytime soon, I do feel lighter and slightly more energized. 

Dear Readers- I've seen fun Q&A sessions on other blogs and thought I might dare to you guys have any questions for me? Anything at all? If so, let me know and I'll do a post answering them :-)

Wait wait I have a freckle on my palm too! Twinsiesss hehe

lo @ crazy ever after said...


When was your last bowel movement?
Favorite karaoke song?
Can I purchase your photographic masterpieces?
Can I skin you and wear you like last year's Versace?
Who is your favorite Minnesotan blogger?

Cara said...

Do you like those nail effects? (that wasn't my question, I am just curious). Does it not chip as easily?

That will be fun for him to fix up an old Bronco- I think it would be really fun to have an old car (although I am WAY too impatient to actually learn to fix/fix one up).

What are some of your pet peeves?

Happy Friday!

Kristen said...

Ahh I have a mole on my palm too! I had no idea there were so many others! And I think our husbands are kindred spirits, mine LOVES to work on old cars. Right now he's fixing up an old 70's motorcycle. Crazy boys! Have a great weekend Amira! :)

Mandee said...

I admire you for doing the smoothie thing---I just don't know if I would be filled up with just a drink---I like food! But I wish I could........

Liz Brown said...

Craaaaazy. I must have been thinking about the old Disney movies right about the same time as you. My parents have a few of them, but, holy wow. Why so pricy?!?!

Michelle {lovely little things} said...

Isn't the Disney movie thing crazy!?! Apparently every few years they release one oldie for a reasonable amount of money and then it's locked away "forever" in the disney vault. Doesn't disney make enough money as is??

On the other hand, I would probably pay a pretty penny for Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast. But still!

Stephanie said...

Love the sparkly nails. I don't have any random freckles on my palm but I do have a lonely little one on the inside of my left ring finger.

And yeah - wtf Disney movies? Why so expensive? Though I might cave and buy Beauty and the Beast. I saw a commercial the other day for it b/c it's going back into the "disney vault" at the end of the month. (To which The Boyfriend replied "What the hell is a Disney vault?")

Ash said...

oh there is so much about this I LOVE!

first of all, that bronco.. I DIE! i have wanted a bad-ass bronco for YEARS now (that, or a VW thing..) and my hubby is pretty much the same way- he NEEDS a car/truck/project to be fixing up. or he literally goes crazy.. it's like therapy.. they should be craigslist buddies.. FOR REAL.

and YAY! i just found you on instagram, so im excited to stalk you (after i write this comment, of course..)

and overpriced disney movies?! dont even get me started (i definitely wouldn't mind if someone ELSE purchased all of them for me..)

AND CONGRATULATIONS!!! seven days of replacing a meal with delicious fruit?! that's an amazing accomplishment! i'm so happy you are feeling better and more energized (: keep it up girl!

1. Do they sink or float?
2. What's your cup size?
3. Who is your favorite Canadian?
4. Granny panties or thongs? Or none?

Danielle said...

Since you are studying to be a librarian..are you a big reader? And if so, what are you currently reading?

nicole. said...

ha. sounds like my husband. he is always searching for the perfect Volkswagen to work on... always. which, btw we owned two until a little over a month ago.. now were down to one.. until the next one he brings home.

boys. boys and their toys.

Mish Lovin' Life said...

Um yeah... those Disney prices are no joke! I searched once awhile ago and saw the same thing. Preposterous! We'd probably be better off digging up our old VHS tapes and buying a VCR to watch them all again...

Ben & Cassie said...

haha your husband sabatoging your car on purpose? too funny! Also those nails are amaze, so are Sally Hansen nail effects the sticker things?
Ps-I would love a q and a post by you
1. Something you love about each of your parents?
2. Favorite TV channel?
3. Favorite Disney Movie
4. One thing you wish you could change about yourself?

Lottie said...

Can't beleive disney moveies are so expensive!

And your husband breaking the plastic off your car so he could look for a new part made me laugh--boys and their toys ;)

{[Jessica]} said...

i love disney movies too & it makes me upset they are all so expensive. sadly I even wore out my lion king dvd so I have had to replace it a few times :(

Q&A I would say, what is the one thing that drives you nuts about Brandon?

Happy Friday.

Anonymous said...

Can my husband buy that Bronco from ya'll when he's done fixing it up? :o) He's been looking for something like that forever!

Okay...question...let's see...

What's one talent you really wish you had?

Michelle said...

I've seriously been depressed over Disney movie prices for awhile now. I want them soooo badly! Sometimes I just need my disney princess moment!

I'm sad I'm not part of the awkward freckle placement club. I have freckles ALL OVER my body. Except for right there. Sigh.

Boys and their cars! My husband is constantly searching for new cars and talking about trading his truck in and blah blah blah. I can't even hear him anymore over all the stress it causes me.

Lynett said...

Hi have a guestion!!!! What camera do you use/lens and how do you get that gorgeous vintage-y tint on all your pics!!!

Charisma Moran said...

Disney movies are the best! I have about three rows of them in my We are kids at heart. Just buy them one at a time! I would start with Beauty and the Beast since the bluray/dvd combo is going back in the vault soon. Also, I would try Target instead of Amazon. They tend to have better prices for Disney movies.

Laura said...

Hmmmm, no questions as of yet. I scanned those questions above and I'm super curious to see if you will answer them! Maybe those disney movies are so expensive because they are in the dreaded "vault"...all the kids I know really hate the "vault", hehe.

Fran said...

I have a freckle in the same exact spot! WEIRD!!!

lori said...

we just got back from vacation, and i am planning on going back to my green smoothies for breakfast... i feel so gross after eating so much all week!
