Dear Baby V,  I think I’ll have you on Valentine’s day ❤ … this is me, your mommy, at 39 weeks.


Dear NF, you’re TOTALLY ready to be a big brother!  You’re such a great helper, see you can even make cookies and banana bread!



Dear sinus infection and NF’s double ear infection, GO AWAYYYYYYYYYY!!!  We have better things to do than sleep on the couch with our mouths open because we can’t breath out of our noses!!


Dear top of the couch, I guess you’re pretty cozy?


Dear Broncos, you won because I made orange and blue m&m brownies.


Dear Teresa Guidice, I’d like to read your book

Dear OJ series on FX, I love love love to hate watch you.

Dear Grey’s Anatomy, I AM SO happy you’re back on!!!!!!!  Last night did not disappoint!!

Dear Lent, sorry I gave up fried food and then forgot 2 days later…  pregnant people don’t have to do lent do they?

Dear the gym, I can’t believe I am still attending you daily.

Dear smellen, please forgive me for how annoying I am to you right now.

Dear Kocktails with Khloe, I still don’t know about you, but I am still going to watch every episode… it’s super weird that you pretend that’s really your house and not a set…???

Dear NF, You amaze me every day.  You’re going to be the best big brother ever!

Dear Baby V, soooo I’m ready when you are!

Dear the truth, “the truth will set you free, but first it’ll piss you off” – Gloria Steinem AMEN!  yes.

Dear life, you are so sweet.  I am so happy to have what I’ve worked so hard for.  I am grateful for each day.  I appreciate the good people who support me.  I appreciate my health and peace.

Dear fitbit, what 38 week plus pregnant lady do you know gets over 100k steps a week, that’s right.

Dear ABC’s original movie, Madoff, I loved it.

Dear Super Bowl, I just hope I get to watch you!

Dear crane that fell in NYC, I have a huge fear of something dropping out of a window high up down on to me (like in cartoons)… a massive crane falls and kills someone UGH… so scary.

Dear Phish coming to town, thumbs downnnn.

Dear J lo dubsmash without make up, I’ve watched you like 100 times.

Dear NF, we’ve watched Frozen 4 days in a row… let’s make it 5!!!!!!

Dear C, I can’t believe we had a 10 minute discussion about Frozen vs Tangled.  You LOVE Tangled.

Dear Smellen, let’s eat avocado salads from that place like asap

Dear Jessica Biel, you’re so pregnant with Justin Timberlake’s baby and that makes me very happy.  See evidence here.

Dear Mad Men, It has been SO long since you were last on TV and so much longer for you to come back on for the final 6 episodes…. it’s driving me insane but it’s also making me lose interest.

Dear Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, how am I just hearing about this now?  So sad and scary!

Dear Parenthood, (no spoiler bc I didnt see it yet) I haven’t watched you yet, but I will finish soon!  and I am prepared for some tears… please Zeek don’t die!

Dear Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, I couldn’t possible really believe that you two were ever going to last forever… but I am always (not always, I want Niki and Juan Pablo to call it quits) cheering the final couples on.  Andi and Josh would have made amazing looking children.  They are no longer together.

Dear the Bachelor 19, I basically have to watch you if I want to keep up with the discussions surrounding me… it seems like this show is extremely popular with woman and married men (as is DWTS) and if I don’t watch, I am totally out of the conversation

Dear Super Bowl, I might be the most excited about this Super Bowl ever… even though I love the Giants (and they are NOT going to be in the Super Bowl)… it’s all about where you are and what you’re doin for the game… and this year, it might be the best (I hope?!)

Dear E!, I loved this article “The 19 Dumbest Fake Jobs that have ever been on the Bachelor

Dear McDonalds, Now… if this is correct I love it… Mcdonald’s will start giving books with happy meals.  Now… NF will not eat anything in a happy meal besides maybe lick an apple slice, eat the cookies (do they still give you the tiny package of cookies) and inhale the chocolate milk or juice (is he the only 3 year old that refuses to eat a french fry?  and when he was really tiny would only suck the salt off them?)  OK, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like a happy meal from time to time.  If we’re on the road and gotta stop a happy meal hits the spot – it’s enough to fill me up, but not enough to make me feel tremendously guilty, and I get a toy!  and now a BOOK!  Nice.

Dear NF, The beginning of January you went to bed like a champ.  Lately not so much.  This week you went nuts from 730-8 like full hyper speed… then putting you to bed was like torture… for both of us.  On another topic, I love that you sing the amen song.  And since when did you start saying echo?  And I can’t believe you count now!  Even if  it’s 3, 4, 9 usually.  And you call 6 up up down 9 and turn your head like you’re trying to look at it upside down.  Oh, you still call W cereal… and I hope you do for forever.

Dear The Bachelor Juan Pablo, you’re the best bachelor ABC’s ever had, I really do think so.

Dear The Olympics, Where’s the hype?  Are we too caught up on the Super Bowl to even talk about you?

Dear Friday nights, I think I’ve always been weird on Friday nights.  The pressure you bring.  Everyone is like TGIF!  And you come and I am like yes!!!  Then Friday night comes… and I’m pretty much doing the same thing I did during the work week except I don’t shower the next morning and I stay up maybe 30 minutes later.  I get a feeling in my stomach I’m missing out and then it’s time to go to bed and I did nothing fun.

Dear Super Bowl, I hope I enjoy you?  No one’s team is in it… so I don’t really care about the outcome.  I did buy a square so that should make you a little more exciting?  And the half time show?

Dear Smellen, you said you’d call me back and you did NOT.  I’m jealous you and your boy friend do things like go to Kohls’s on Friday nights together.  You’re probably watching a movie together right now. #doisoundlonelybecauseiam

Dear Abs Class, I hope I am sore tomorrow.  I really really do.

Dear Grocery Store, I am going to see you tomorrow as early as possible (by 8:45 AM is the goal?).  I really hope it’s not a zoo because of the giant Syracuse Duke game and the Super Bowl.

Dear Syracuse Basketball, I’m not into you this year and I have reasons that have nothing to do with you.  I’m sure once March Madness is here I’ll care more.

Dear Laundry Machines, I HATE that you’re 25 cents more a machine.  Gathering $3 in quarters today was rough… rougher than $2.50 that’s for sure.

Dear Winter, I’m over you too!

Dear Tredmill, I wish I owned you.  I’d go on you right now and run a mile.

Dear Shark Tank, you made me so hungry tonight!  I wanted that cookie dough so bad!

Dear Garmin, thank you… you bring me right where I want to go.  Living without a smart phone isn’t so bad because I have you.

Dear Stomach, NO I will not feed you right now.  There’s no need it’s too late and almost time for bed so stop.

Dear Mind, Have I lost you?  Maybe?

Dear Blog Readers, who are you?  Comment so I know.  Who really reads this thing?
