Today's Letters Inspired Tuesday

Today's Letters: Dear Bryan J. cleaning out our apartment made me inevitably clean out our Igloo coolers from 2009, which in turn made me think of going camping this summer. We missed camping last summer since we were a little busy gettin' hitched and all, but this summer will be a different story. Can't wait to smell like bug spray, roast hot dogs, and play in the sun with you. Dear Law & Order: SVU, most people stick with The Price is Right, not me. Thank you for filling my sick days on the couch with suspenseful crime stories and super attractive detectives. Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay hit the genetic jackpot in the looks department! Dear Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, this year, for the first time ever, I WILL enjoy your gloriousness, and take endless pictures in your fields of beautiful fragrant tulips. Dear husband, you looked like a knight in shining armor when you came waltzing through the door with gourmet(Safeway)chicken noodle soup, saltines and popsicles-you took good care of me this time I was sick, I'll return the favor someday. Until then, the only song that seemed appropriate was this one.  

I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh all I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

What does your mister do for you when you're sickly? Any special requests you have for him when he visits the store?
I gotta have Progresso chicken noodle soup and crackers - only thing I can eat when I don't feel good.

I'll be announcing the winner in my next post! Stay tuned :)


  1. omg I LOVE to camp with my honey!! Justin always gets me anything I want when I am sick. And when ever he goes to the store he seem sto always come back with flowers or a balloon. :)

  2. My boyfriend has the extra tough job of finding gluten free soups. Last year when I had the flu he went to three stores searching for the right soup(I loooove Progresso Chicken and Rice when they decide to make it gf). He didn't find it, but it's the thought that counts!

  3. This is so sweet, and I LOVE that song! I also love chicken noodle soup and crackers when I'm sick. Sean is good at keeping me hydrated and giving me neck and back massages!

  4. Oh boy.. i want apple juice.. And Warm Chicken broth.. And Tes.. but my vice when I don't feel good? HALLZ. yummy! Glad your feeling better! We do the tulips every year! We should meet up this year! :)
