Hey You, I've Got Some Letters....



Dear lake/Put in Bay/cottage, we are heading your way tonight for the weekend. It's the biggest "party" weekend of the year at Put In Bay because it's Christmas in July and all the island businesses decorate for the holiday. Live music? Check. Everyone in Santa hats and Christmas decorations everywhere? Check. Boating? Check. We are actually heading to a winery tonight and I'm so excited! All the makings for a perfect summer weekend.

Dear Ohio weather, you have been HOT HOT HOT this week. My car said 97 when I got in it last night....at 7pm. While it may sound like I'm complaining, I've actually come to realize these past couple years how much I prefer hot weather vs. extreme cold weather. My bones can't take the cold anymore. They just can't. With that being said...


Dear people counting down to football season, as much as I love it (hello Ohio State Buckeyes-only the best of the best) I'M NOT READY YET! Why oh why are we starting a countdown so early? Summer just started I thought?! Let's give summer some time to shine (literally), pretty please?

 
Okay, Okay, fine....I'm a LITTLE excited... (Me and Billy's cousin Greg)

Dear month of August, every single weekend is completely booked. 3 weekends out of town, 1 in town, and 1 big 3 year anniversary (THREE years-where in the world has the time gone?). I have a feeling you are going to fly right by about as fast as I can try to soak you up.... PS: Does anyone have any good 3 year anniversary gift ideas?

 

Dear McD's sugar free vanilla iced coffee, you make my Friday mornings much more enjoyable.

Dear Billy and Rocky, you guys are too cute for your own good.

Dear Katie, get yourself a haircut next week, would ya? You need it.

Dear The Challenge (on MTV), why am I still watching you so many years later? But can we not get into how many years it's actually been because I'm trying to block that out of my head.

CT has absolutely nothing to do with why I'm still watching.

Dear Texas, I miss you. There - I said it.

Dear Katie (part two), stop eating handfuls of skittles every dang day. You were doing so well. Just say NO.

Dear readers, thank you for being so awesome - make sure you enter my Rad Market giveaway to win yourself some fabulous jewelry and have yourself an amazing weekend!

I'm expecting some good insta videos + pics on the horizon this weekend, so follow me @katiewkrysh if you're into that kind of thing. :)

  20. Well no shit you miss Texas! Who wouldn't??

    Don't think I didn't get overly excited when you FINALLY admitted above that you "prefer hot weather vs. extreme cold weather" AND your "bones can't take the cold anymore". I know EXACTLY what that means!

  28. I totally still watch The Challenge. Though I miss the days with Psycho little Katie...she was CA-RAY-ZEE. And I had a little crush on Derek. *swoon*

  29. YES PLEASE!!! Let's just enjoy summer! I'll never understand why so many people want to rush fall because to me... fall means winter is around the corner and summer is a whole year away :(

    ReplyDelete
  30. Woo Buckeyes!! And totally random- but I know Greg from OU! We were in the same business fraternity!!

  31. Hope you have so much fun at Put in Bay! I went there once on a family trip when I was 16 so sadly didn't get to enjoy all of it! I may have to make a trip there again!

    ReplyDelete
  32. You know you are old when you tune in to watch the Challenge and you have NO IDEA who half of the contestants are on the show since that's how many Real World/Road Rules casts they've had since your college days! I recognized Johnny Bananas and Paula Walnuts, Aneesa from the Chicago season, Wes, Diem and CT and the rest are all so new I had no clue who they were!
