Letter and Faves for Friday!

Morning and happy first Friday of June, ladies! This week wasn't as bad as expected after my two day work week. However, I'm still extremely excited to see Friday's pretty face after last night. Y'all I am bushed because I thought it would be a good idea to do yoga at lunch, lift after work, attend an event for Babyspice [HI] and then sub in a soccer game. WOOF! That's usually what I do all week crammed into a one day, haha. You better believe I'm sleeping well tonight. Now, let's get into some Friday favorite letters :)!

Dear Favorite DIY of the Week,
I'm kind of digging this tutorial, even though it looks a bit intimidating. Ever since Kathy posted about the light box her husband built her [he's so awesome] I've wanted one for myself. I know I'm not a FOOD blogger but I would love to make my pictures look better just for myself. Even though your steps are well laid out, I think I'm going to need Le Husband's help. Fingers crossed we don't kill each other in the process!

Dear Favorite Quote of the Week,
You make me happy. You make me smile. You make me realize it's okay to not be perfect and to just be me. Grace is something I'm working on granting more and you are helping me realize that goal.

Dear Favorite Awkward Video of the Week,
I'm normally not a fan of awkward videos. They make me cringe and feel badly for all involved. But, I can't help but watch you over and over again [thanks Today show]. The guy proposing looks so happy and the girl looks so incredulous at the situation. She is trying to not to be mean but her last line about the chicken sandwhic has me laughing every time. Now, don't get mad, I believe every proposal story is beautiful so even though this one didn't go as planned I still think it's a great story and am glad I found you to share with my friends. Please don't get mad that I giggle every time I play you.



Dear Favorite Links of the Week,
I don't  know why, but finding and saving you guys all week is one of my favorite weekly blogging rituals. I usually post fun ones -- like this story about Disney -- but every now and then a serious story makes it's way into the fold -- like this one about women being persecuted -- because I think we need to understand the good and bad in the world. I also like to educate people on sports -- it's Stanley Cup Finals time, ladies --- interesting articles -- don't make these eggcorn mistakes -- and of course blog posts I find incredibly informative -- Five ways we rob ourselves, four reasons you need dailies [podcastfoundhere]-- because it's fun to share the knowledge.

Dear Favorite Funnies of the Week,
You funnies, bring me so much joy. I love pinning during the week and I love searching for that extra special funny on Thursday. Making people laugh makes me happy and this a great way to help everyone have a great Friday. Thanks for being awesome funniverse.
