Friday's Letters & Friday's Fancies Week #22: Stars + Stripes

Friday's Letters
Dear Car, breaking down on the way home from work on a Monday, not the best start to my week.  Dear Car (again), and breaking down again on the way home from the Lake on the 4th?  Seriously?  Dear Husband, I think it's time to get me a new car!  Pleeeeeeaaaassssseeeeeeee!  Dear Contessa, I love waking up in the middle of the night with you sleeping next to my pillow with all of your fur in my face.  I find it endearing...  Dear 550 Piece Puzzle, I'm glad we finished you in two days...  It created great conversation and spawned childhood memories of sitting at the card table.  Dear Jessica, I'm so excited that you are randomly stopping next weekend on your way up to New England!  What a surprise!  YAH!  Dear Summer, I'm probably going to complain about you everyday when you are bringing 100+ degree weather...  I'm just not a fan!  Dear Fall, I'm counting down the days until your cool crisp days arrive, with your muted fall colors, turning leaves, pumpkins and football arrives...  It makes me happy.

Friday's Fancies Week #22: Stars + Stripes
This weeks Friday's Fancies is in remembrance of Independence Day!  It was quite strange to have a holiday smack dab in the middle of the week and not have to work.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about having a day off!  We just found it hard to try to make any travel plans and wanting to take extra days off...  With that being said, we both had Wednesday off and drove up to Lake Gaston for the day to spend time with some friends!  We had a great day on the Lake!  (pictures next week) Thursday I worked from home and the husband went to work.  Today, we both took off just to get some extra R&R.

What did you do for the holiday?


  1. that dress is too cute!:) kisses dear!

  2. I love that yall did a puzzle and chatted. It is always good to be reminded of doing those types of things so that we really talk!

  3. I love that dress! It's so nautical looking and needs to get in my closet when it's on sale! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

  4. That watch is gorgeous - I wouldn't guess it was Fossil! And those leopard flats are SO chic. If I wore ballet flats I'd be snapping those up!


  5. Loving your stars and stripes look! That dress is perfect and we are drooling over the TB handbag! Good luck with your car and hope you get a new one soon so you don't have to worry anymore. :-) Hope you have a great weekend!
