Friday's letters

Every now and then, it's fun to participate in a link-up or two, and I think that Friday's letters is a little extra fun.  It totally encourages those little things that pop into your head to bounce around the interwebs for all to see!

Dear Blog friends,

Thank you for the amazing discussions we always manage to have.  I love that I can ask you questions through a blog, and you will answer them candidly.  I am so blessed to have THE BEST readership.  Hands down.  I wouldn't trade you guys for 800 followers ever.  EVER.

Dear Co-workers,

I'm really sorry for what might happen with this coffee situation.  I know we have agreed on a minimum amount that I need to consume daily.  However, it tastes like poop when I use milk instead of half and half, or coffee creamer.  I do love y'all, and I'm sorry you may suffer for a few days while I adjust.

Dear Weight Watchers,

I can't figure out the rationale behind your new points.  3 points for 1/2 of a bag of Butter Lite popcorn seems somewhat excessive.  I'm hoping we get through our mutual adjustment phase quickly, and move on to mutual adoration.

Dear Ammon,

We're only a few weeks into the semester, and already we're both seeing the effects of our super-busy schedules.  I'm sorry that the next 3.5 months have to suck so much, but I wouldn't be able to put up with the suck if I were with anyone else but you.  And now I have that Moldy Peaches song stuck in my head.  Thanks a lot, jerk.

Dear "This Radiant Life" blog,

I love what you give me simply by being a creative, safe space for me to exist.  I never realized how much value I would find simply by creating with you.  Let's be BFFs.

Dear self,

I know that it might seem like I'm not happy with you lately, given my renewed desire to lose weight.  It simply isn't true.  I absolutely, 100% love and adore you.  And that right there is why I want to lose weight; I want to make sure that you are the healthiest, happiest, sexiest self you can be.

Have a great Friday, friends.  Hope this weekend is exactly what you need it to be!

  1. I tried weight watchers once. Then I ate all my points in ww ice cream bars. It was magical. ;)

  2. have you ever tried vanilla almond milk in your coffee? it tastes even better than milk, has more calcium, and is better for you!

  3. milk with coffee - thank god my co-workers don't count on milk and other supplies for each of us. sometimes I drink only milk :)
    by the way, I loove this section of your blog. indeed, creative you are!

  4. After I got off the phone with you last night, I was still trying to digest the 3 points for 1/2 a bag of popcorn thing. I can't wrap my head around it. A lot's changed since my WW days, I guess! P.S. I love you. Have a great weekend!! = )

  5. Same here, I don't like milk in my coffee, only creamer! and lots of sugar. :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Kristen!

  6. 1. I'm sorry, I just can't say Ammon's name correctly. I apologize in advance for the day I meet him and call him a-min.
    2. You are awesome. Tell yourself that. I hope you realize your greatness.
    3. Weight watchers points sound hard and mean. I hope you two start to get along after your adjustment period.

  7. I feel the same way about my readers. And that's why I choose not to sponsor blogs and just let my blog grow organically :)


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
