Friday's Letters and More Awards!

I always love reading other bloggers' Friday confessions/letters
and I'm also a little obsessed with Jimmy Fallon's Friday letters each week
but I've yet to create my own.
So now, it's Friday
and now seems like as good a time as any.

Here goes.


Dear Lil Wayne, thanks for allowing this white girl to bump to your tunes in her car, especially after a particularly stressful day. Dear bed, thanks for being so comfortable. However, school starts soon and sleeping in until 10 will no longer be acceptable. In fact, it's questionable now. We're going to have to work on this. Also, if you could learn how to make yourself that would be awesome! Dear hubby, thanks for working so hard to get all the little things done before our cookout tonight. You are the best, for so many different reasons. And sorry for calling you "hubby" just then. I thought I'd try it on for size...still not a fan. Dear Roxy, I love you and you are the most well-behaved dog I've ever met. But your constant shedding of black hair is really becoming a problem. Mama can't sweep everyday. Dear Chic-Fil-A, I love that you have beliefs even if they tick some people off. I do wish you were open on Sundays, but respect your decision. I will forever be a fan of your food! Dear Anderson Cooper, I've enjoyed watching your show the past few mornings, but I've decided it's not good for my health. I get way too opinionated about your topics and yelling at my TV screen first thing in the morning is not a good thing. Dear Willow, I love that you are a spaz of a dog and you will forever be my number one snuggle bug. Dear followers, I love you all and still can't really believe that you actually read my ramblings! Y'all are the best!

Now for some more delightful awards. 

Debbie over at K is for Kinderific (how cute is that blog name?) and Jenny from Mrs. Brown's Blog both nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.
So now, I need to:

1. Follow the person who gave me the award. (I'm already following them both, now you should too!) 
2. Link back to the person who gave you the award. (See above, or click here and here! Seriously, you've gotta check them out! )
3. Pass along to 15 new bloggers and let them know they've received the award. 

Number 3 is the tricky part, so I'm taking a cue from Ms. Debbie and passing this along to 5 new bloggers. Not because I couldn't find 15 blogs that I love, but because I couldn't find 15 blogs that everyone else didn't already love! After much searching I've found 5 wonderful blogs that (hopefully) haven't already received this award. 
If I overlooked and gave you the award even though you've already gotten it, just consider yourself extra lovely!

Also, I need to give a huge shout out to one particularly lovely blogger: Debbie over at Telsie's Tidbits who also awarded me with the One Lovely Blog Award. Like me, she's new to this whole blogging business and is navigating through better than she thinks! :) If you haven't yet, go check her out and send her some love! 

Happy Friday dolls (and honestly, if I'm following you already I think your blog's pretty lovely, with or without an award!)


P.S. If you're a little sucky new to Twitter like me, head over to Laura's blog and link up. She's doing a Meet and Tweet (too cute, I know). And she also has a pretty fly blog. Check it out y'all.

  7. I know what you mean about the black haired dogs, my 2 pet dogs had black hair when I was growing up and my parents solution was to buy a black leather couch - then you cant see the hairs so much anymore! Still have to sweep the floors though, sux doesnt it!
