Be Still My Heart.

Courtesy of one of my favorite blogs (and a reminder from LL to check it out) I thought I’d take this lovely Friday as an opportunity to show you what LOVE looks like in the form of pictures. Plus, I just really wanted these gorgeous images on my blog. Thanks Design*Sponge (and LL)!

How do I love thee? Let me list the ways:

Out of Office: Auto Reply

Dear BlogReaders,
Hundreds of you have contacted me out of concern, love, and impatience.

1. YES I’m behind on blogging.
2. YES I owe you New York Updates.
3. YES I managed to miss birthday letters to HER and HIM.
4. YES when I said “hundreds of you” I mostly meant one.

I promise posts will resume shortly. Getting sick* and catching up on work have really thrown a wrench into my blogging plans. Damn adulthood.

In the meantime, here’s something you’ll really LOVE! Don’t forget to click the link that’s on the link, I have a feeling you might recognize who the post is talking about! I love making famous friends, I’m pretty sure I’d thrive** living in NYC.

Love,
BehindOnMyBlog

*NOT the H1N1, just so we’re clear.
** By “thrive” I clearly mean “I can’t afford it”

NYC or Bust.

Dear NewYorkCity,
How stoked are you that I’m going to be there to visit you next week!? I know it’s going to be hard, but try to maintain composure without talking about my trip in every sentence you form to anyone with ears. I’m pretty sure they’ll find that obnoxious – just a hunch. Isn’t it hard to believe I’ve never come for a vacay before? I mean you come see me via movies and shows all the time. Finally, I’m finally returning the favor and you’re welcome.

You’ll be happy to hear that I’ve secured just about everything on my Pre-NYC wish list, so I come prepared. I’ll be picking up aviator sun glasses this weekend along with the added bonus of a Yankees baseball hat so I can be ready for the game on Friday. Other efforts to get ready for said game have included memorizing the Yankees’ starting lineup. Reciting this to your friends and family while showing off what you think is “pretty cool” is another example of things people find obnoxious – someone told me that, I don’t do it obvs.

If you’re so inclined, it would be AWESOME if you had some of your celebrity pals show up at places I’ll be. Just say the word, and I’ll send over my itinerary to make it easier for JT, Sara Jessica, or Bobby Flay to find me. Anything I can do to help! Although I’m armed with a VERY cute travel umbrella that will reside in my VERY cute satchel bag I’d like to ask you to wrap up your week of less than desirable weather in time for my arrival on Tuesday night. Similarly, I am wrapping up my less than desirable work load in order to visit. Again, you’re welcome.

I’m sure we’ll have plenty more to discuss once I’m there, can’t wait to see you!

Love,
BigAppleReady

Month X

Dear MrLovesHimSomeNerdyStuff,
10 months! How annoying is it that I’m writing again so soon? I hope no one throws up in their mouths, that’d be gross. Anywhoosie, thanks for recording the Food Network Cake Challenge: Last Cake Standing this past month. And more importantly, thank you for keeping complaints to a minimum while watching and enduring my yelling at the TV.

Sorry about that one time I got a bad attitude about that one thing and acted like a you know what. Good thing it only lasted for the drive from Target to your place and then 10 minutes worth of DVR before we got over it. I like the not arguing part of our program.

I’ll keep this brief, after all you’ll hear from me again on June 6th. Don’t worry, the monthly frequency is only going to continue until the 1 year mark, then I’ll ease up. I don’t want to be one of those “my kid is 26-months old” people. . . partially because of the kid, but mostly because it’s just annoying. Come on, the rug-rat is 2!!

Love,
MsLovesHerSomeGuyThatLovesNerdyStuff
