Dear NF, I love that you call flamingos “mingos”…. I hope your sports class today goes really well.  You’re the best!  I love on the weekends when you wake up at 7:15 AM to climb into my bed to sleep for another half hour.

Dear pregnancy belly, you have officially emerged… idk how I’ll manage getting even bigger than this and we’re not even at 30 weeks yet.

Dear Beak and Skiff, loved seeing you one last time before fall is over

Dear Owen on Grey’s anatomy, why do you dislike Nathan so much… is this what the winter finale is going to be all about?  eh it better be good.

Dear Jackson and April on Grey’s anatomy, ummm…. you’re stressing me out.

Dear Christina Yang on Grey’s anatomy, Oh how I miss you.  I never cared for Derek (YEAH I SAID IT) – but yang… yang I loved.

Dear Pie Night, I just keep thinking you’re next week!!  UGhhh.

Dear etsy, I can get lost looking at you.

Dear Smellen and Teevee, I hope to see you soon – but we have no plans.

Dear NF, you’re everything to me… I can’t believe 4 years ago today I was baking Halloween cookies for a charity (best cookies ever and I should probably make them again in your honor) and by Sunday night I was having contractions ALL night – and you were born at 6:47 PM Halloween night.  You make me so happy and proud to be a mom.  It could be raining outside and you’ll still tell me it’s a beautiful day.  I can’t squeeze hug you enough!!

Dear hot chocolate, I’m kinda liking you lately, but as soon as I actually buy a box of you, I’ll probably be over it and throw the box out 2 years later when I realize it’s expired (has happened before).

Dear rain, stay far far away tomorrow PLEASE, thanks.

Leah Remini, I’ve always been a fan of yours.  Since like saved by the bell days (though it felt wrong, Zack needed to be with Kelly, honestly).  I loved you on the talk when I was on maternity leave… I am loving you filling in for Erin Andrews on DWTS the past two weeks.  Wasn’t I expecting a book Fall 2013 when you were a contestant on DWTS?  Is this the book that I’ve been waiting for?  Two years later… ugh I gotta read it.  I wish it came out Nov 1st instead of 3rd…. is it possible it would be early release like Orange is the New Black?  Leah, are you actually going to answer my Friday letter to you?

Dear pumpkins in the lawn, what animal has been terrorizing you and taking bites out of you at night?

Dear Fayetteville Target, why would you not have a Starbucks, I mean come on?  Super weird.

Dear holiday themed shower curtains, I think I wanna be that mom who does this.

Lamar Odom, k got it, you’re still in the hospital.  but why do I still read every update?  This is going to be a long recovery and I’ll know every detail, whether I want to or not.

Dear Smellen, I wish I was with you on your honey moon.  and I wish you weren’t missing Halloween.

Dear Grey’s and Modern Family, UHHH I wish I had a warning you weren’t going to be new this week.  and WHAT no modern family Halloween episode?  How disappointing.

Dear The Chew, I gotta see what you guys dress up as this year, GOT TO!

Dear Janman, I can’t believe you got a princess peach costume to go trick or treating with NF, you’re nuts, and I love it.

Dear baby in my belly, I can’t wait to hold you and I hope you’re a very good baby that sleeps a lot… like preferably from 8 pm to 8 am and then naps during the day.  Thank you!

Dear woot-offs, I can never resist you.

Dear Christmas shopping, I can’t believe I’ve already started you.

Dear Target, my 7 year old niece asked me what’s my favorite store while braiding my hair, and I said… “Target” – my 13 year old niece and her best friend (also doing each other’s hair) simultaneously said, “same” in a mono tone teenagery voice… like target is totally cool with the 8th graders and the mom’s in their 20’s (I can still say that for 10 more months).

Dear Teevee, if you can’t use your data then stop using your data… so you better not see this blog post.

Dear Janman, I swear you were coming to my house for something soon but I can’t remember what it was… was it to prepare for nf’s birthday party?  that’s so far away… that can’t be it… was it bridal shower related stuff??  I have no idea…

Dear Johnny Mac on Big Brother 17, you’re my fav.

Dear summer tan, I’ve given up on you already.

Dear True Detective, I’m losing interest.

Dear Shimmer and Shine, I’ve seen the one episode you have on demand 100 times.
