Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, this weekend we drove around Dallas looking at houses. Your ability to see the potential in things energizes this dreamer! Dear Africa Reading List, Em and I have been so blessed by the vast depths of knowledge poured over us in preparation for Uganda. We are continually challenged by the charge to care for the poor, orphan, and the widow. Dear Super Bowl, thanks for giving us a reason to make homemade hot wings. Looking forward to burning off our lips while using Ranch as ChapStick as we cheer on the Giants!  Dear Emma, sometimes you like to crawl up into my lap while we watch TV. There is nothing more enjoyable than having you near.

Over and out,

What good books have you read lately? And Giants or Patriots?

{Today's Letters}

Monday, January 30, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, sometimes when I'm reading in bed you'll dump a pile of warm laundry on me and say, "Here's your poor man's electric blanket." This always makes me laugh. Dear Austin to Boston Tour, thanks for being a concert worth Twinner flying in for. Can't wait to road trip it to OKC in March to see Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Bear's Den all share the same stage! Dear Homies, the movie Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was just as powerful as the book. Definitely a must see. Dear Timothy James (who always gets two letters), wanna speak at Merge on Valentine's Day? I was hoping you'd take me out afterwards on a hot date to In-N-Out.You know how I feel about their chocolate shakes.

Happy freaking Monday, Homies! How was your weekend? Did you do anything that made you laugh? Listen to anything that made you dance? Watch anything that made you grateful? Or eat anything that made you ride your invisible horse around your living room while shouting, "Holy deliciousness, Batman!"

{The Motomethod Documentary}

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I know I've been throwing a lot of documentaries at you lately but this one reminds me of spending Wednesday nights at shop class with my dad. If only there were more places like this to teach younger generations to repair what they have instead of buying something new!

{You All Are So Brave!}

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Just a quick hello to say THANK YOU to all of you who answered our questions on the blog today! You are officially no longer considered closet commenters. It's been fun getting to know you better, and in doing so we have realized five things: 1) you all are a bunch of talented people - everything from stay at home mama's to ivy league students 2) more of you live in the Dallas area than we thought 3) there are officially 2 men reading our blog 4) you all have impeccable taste in music and 5) you guys keep Crest in business. We love you guys!

PS, in case you haven't heard, Patagonia is having a huge sale ... go getchu some!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, as we prepare for our trip to Uganda, one thing becomes more clear to me each day: this life we have together is such a *gift*. Dear Jack Bauer, looking forward to watching the premier of your new show on Fox tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed that you'll carry a satchel and phone CTU for backup. Dear Go Month (Get Organized Month), so far you've been marked by newly scrubbed hardwoods, a deep cleaned kitchen, and the tossing of all expired foods in our Frigidaire. Fresh starts are sometimes just what this girl needs. Dear Timothy James, your giving tree peace offerings are also the shiz. BAM!

For those of you who are comment shy on the blog, today's your day to put on your Wonder Woman (or Superman) skivvies and comment! We'd love to know A) your favorite song B) the most beautiful place you've ever visited and C) preferred toothpaste and D) occupation.

Tim's answers: Three Tree Town by Ben Howard, Alaska, TOM's Whole Care, Physician Assistant.
Em's answers: Re:Stacks by Bon Iver, Maui, Burt's Bees Multicare, Watermark Community Church Staff (for last 7 yrs) ... can you believe they let me work with kids??

Okay, your turn. We believe in you.

{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, lately you have been surprising me on our runs. Always on the last leg, you pick up the pace and kick my tail. I love being pushed by you!  Dear 63 Yr Old Cutie Grandma Patient, thank you for the thoughtful gift last week. Hopefully I will no longer be known as having cold hands during your knee injections. Dear Brother, I know you are in for a long recovery after your back surgery, but I have high hopes of you persevering. I'm proud of you, Matt! Dear Emma, this weekend you left me a chocolate covered pretzel decorated with Valentine's Day bling under our giving tree. I love your peace offerings after conflicts.

Over and out,

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! What's your favorite Valentine's Day candy?

{The Civil Wars Concert}

Monday, January 23, 2012

The Civil Wars concert Saturday night was INCREDIBLE.

They played at The House of Blues, one of our favorite concert venues in Dallas.

The opening band,The Staves, pretty much had all of us eating out of their hands like the Sirens in Homer's Odyssey. Talk about incredible harmony!

Of course, one of my favorite moments was seeing The Civil Wars perform, Poison & Wine. You could have heard a pin drop it was so magical.

Overall Highlights: 1) pre-concert dinner with the McGuires & WMBM at The Velvet Taco 2) taking a fist pump photo with The Staves 3) Joy Williams' dancing (nuff said) and 4) hearing The Civil Wars pay tribute to Etta James by singing "To Whom It May Concern."

For those of you who listen to The Civil Wars, what's your favorite song they sing? Happy freaking Monday, Homies!

{Mexico by The Staves}

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Required Saturday morning listening in honor of the The Civil Wars concert tonight. (The Staves will be opening). Pretty sure these three sisters from Liverpool will sound just as magical as Joy Williams and John Paul White singing Poison & Wine. Team Loerke, Tyroch, and McGuire hope to see you there!

{Fist Pump Friday!}

Remember our headboard tutorial Tim and I posted on the blog a few months ago? Well, look who gave their biscuit a facelift! Kat couldn't be more excited about her new headboard. Way to go, Little!

Lastly, meet sisters Jill and Julie (Texas A&M) who threw fist pumps in South Dakota at Mount Rushmore. George, Thomas, Theodore, and Abraham would be so proud of you two!

Thursday, January 19, 2012

The average American eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year. SIXTY EIGHT! Tim and I are not big popcorn eaters, but we're grateful this day gave us an excuse to make homemade Cinnamon Caramel Corn with Pecans & White Chocolate. Talk about delicious!

What's your favorite flavor of popcorn?

{Today's Letters}

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, just when I thought this grocery list couldn't be topped, I find this on our kitchen counter. Well played. Dear John C. Campbell Folk School, your classes on woodworking, gardening, and music make me dream of building my own bamboo fly rod and clawhammer banjo. If only North Carolina wasn't so far away! Dear Broken Loveseat, you were faithful for 7 years, but as Pap-reeka Shaniqua would say, it was time to kick you to the curb. So grateful for our new couch and that we can now take naps without being wadded up like a ball. Dear Timothy James, sometimes you watch shows about SA80 assault rifles. You also like to read me children stories before bed. You are indeed, a Tender Warrior.

If you could buy anything at the grocery store this weekend what would it be? (Price not an issue). Clearly, we are out of Paprika.

{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, whenever you get out of the shower you stand on the edges of our bath mat so I can have the dry space in the middle. This is one of the numerous ways you love me well. Dear Chicken Broccoli Casserole, you are one of my all-time favorite meals that Emma makes. It's got good ole home-cooking written all over it. Dear Medical City ER, I have spent a lot of time over the past few weeks preparing for my start date. I can't wait for Feb 6th! Dear Emma, sometimes I do funny things to get your attention. Last night I did sit-ups and push-ups in the kitchen while you cooked dinner. Know that you'll always be the girl that I flex for.

Over and out,

Have you ever been to the ER before? If you live in the Dallas area, perhaps we will meet at Medical City. (Or hopefully under better circumstances!).

{Happy Martin Luther King Day!}

Monday, January 16, 2012

It's no secret that one of my favorite holidays is Martin Luther King Day. Our world would be such a different place had it not been for this man's efforts to help end racial segregation. Amen?

Traditionally Tim and I celebrate by cooking Martin Luther King's favorite meal: fried chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans, mac & cheese, sweet tea and homemade pecan pie.

This year we decided to rope in some of our friends to join in the celebration. Each couple brought a side and Tim got his Colonel Sanders on and cooked fried chicken in our new turkey fryer. It was a feast!

Tim and I also like to to celebrate MLK Day by watching a documentary about his efforts to transform the civil rights movement in America. There's still so much about this great man we don't know! Btw, Netflix has a wide selection of documentaries in their "watch it instantly" section.

We'd love to know if you have any other traditions or creative ways to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. There's so much more to this special day than just taking time off from work and not getting our mail!

"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." - MLK

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, coming home to a clean house after being gone for two days was perfect. Thank you for loving me this way! Dear Twinner, I'm always amazed at the treasures you find at flea markets. Love you more than brass pulleys and old books that smell of adventure. Dear Turkey Fryer, this weekend you're going to help us cook a fried chicken feast for 8 of our friends. With seasoned flour sent from KC, you're destined to be finger licking good! Dear Timothy James, congratulations on completing your 250th surgery. I officially crown thee king of all things suction and retractors. So very proud of you!

Anyone else enjoy coming home to a clean house after being gone? It's like CRACK. PS, here's a song I've been listening to lately. {Inspiration found at 02:19}

{Our Favorite Salad}

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Popeye says, "Three fist pumps for spinach!" This salad takes about 5 minutes to make and will have most veggie fearing individuals asking for seconds. Trust me, you're gonna love it.

Pine Nuts (toasted)
Dried Cranberries (we use Craisins)
Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing (the bottle with the peach on it)

1. Toast a hand full of pine nuts on medium heat in a small skillet. Remove from heat once they start turning golden brown. Pour into a small bowl and set aside.
2. Wash and rinse spinach and place in a medium bowl.
3. Sprinkle a handful of Craisins, toasted pine nuts, and enough poppy seed dressing to your liking. Toss and serve!

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Husband's Letters: Dear Emma, sometimes I like to lay out your jammers for you after a long day at work. My selections rarely match but you wear them just the same. Dear Beard, I used to only let you stick around until my face started to itch. Now with my new beard trimmer you are here to stay! Dear Birch Box, thank you for teaching me the importance of having soft hands and smelling good. You ended up being one of my favorite Christmas gifts. Dear Little, you share truth with me when I'm not being the man God wants me to be. Your honesty blesses me so. Love you!

Monday, January 09, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend we had dinner with friends, went on a run, grilled pork wrapped in bacon Woobies, and set up our Kammok in the front yard. All of these things made me so grateful to be your wife. Dear Sweet Potato Fries, I wish we could quit you. Dear 10pm, you are officially my new bed time ... and my mornings have never been sweeter. Dear Husband, sometimes you like to practice boxing while waiting on the microwave. Reason #269 why boy roommates are AWESOME.

Happy freaking Monday, Homies! What are you favorite kind of fries? Curly? Sweet Potato? Shoestring? Waffle-cut? Seasoned? Do tell!

{Our Next Big Adventure!}

Saturday, January 07, 2012

As many of you know, Em and I have been given the opportunity to speak at a Leadership Conference in Uganda with Watermark Community Church from March 2nd - 10th, 2012. We will be partnering with African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministry (ALARM), teaching on the topics of conflict resolution and forgiveness while developing the future leaders of Uganda.

{Em before getting her immunization shots ... ten in all. She is brave!}

The Total trip cost is $3,500 per person ($7,000 for both of us). Because several of you have asked how you can financially support our trip we thought we'd let you know that a tax deductible donation can be made through February 15th.

If you'd like to financially support Em and I, please make your checks payable to "Watermark Community Church" and include "Uganda: Tim & Em Loerke" in the memo line, and Watermark will send you a tax receipt. You can mail checks to:

You can also find out more about Watermark and ALARM's efforts in Uganda here. We look forward to learning from the Ugandan people, and are grateful that you would consider being a part of our adventure with us!

Much Love,
Tim & Em

{Fist Pump Friday!}

Friday, January 06, 2012

To kick off this week's photos we have Timothy, Sibyl, Kelly, and Robyn who threw fist pumps at their recent reunion at the Semien Mountains in Ethiopia. Even though Robyn now lives in Kenya, she was thankful to have spent time over the holidays with her friends.

Our next photo is a whole bag of win. Thankfully, I get to work with two of these jokers every day (Whitney & her husband Jarrod). They threw fist pumps with Jarrod's twin brother, Jordan, his wife Lauren, their younger sister Blair (on the floor), and her husband, Kip. Love me some Rudesill Family fist pumps! PS, I spy great grandma's vintage aluminum Christmas tree in the background. M-A-G-I-C-A-L.

Next, meet Janie, Erin, Lauren, and Marti who threw fist pumps at Passion this weekend in Atlanta. Over 44,000 college students gathered at the Georgia Dome and raised more than 3 million dollars to help end slavery and human trafficking.

Madison and Beth also threw fist pumps and leg kicks at Passion this week. These turkey's go to Berry College in Rome, GA and were thankful to be apart of such an amazing conference.

Don't forget to email photos to em{at}todaysletters{dot}com. We're still looking for the following submissions this Spring: A) at the Pyramids in Egypt B) while riding an elephant C) with Twinner at Local123 in Berkeley or D) with your mailman. (Of course all other entries will be accepted).

{Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Movie Trailer}

Thursday, January 05, 2012

One of my favorite authors is Jonathan Safran Foer. He wrote best selling novels, Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. His wife, Nicole Krauss, is the author of one of my favorite books, The History of Love. You could say that these two are as dynamic of a duo in the literary world as Batman & Robin. I'm thrilled to see one of Jonathan's masterpieces finally made it to film. And who better than Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock to star as Oskar Shell's parentals?

"I shook my tambourine the whole time, because it helped me remember that even though I was going through different neighborhoods, I was still me." (pg 88)

{Grandma Loerke's Homemade Banana Pudding}

Thursday, January 05, 2012

I made this pudding last week for Tim (per his request every year on his birthday), and I'm convinced he would sleep with a bowl full under his pillow if he could get away with it. Nom, nom, nom ... Get ready for some of the best nanner pudding of yo' life!

1 (6 oz) Box of Instant Vanilla Pudding
3 Cups Milk
1 (8 oz) Package of Cream Cheese (room temp)
1 (14 oz) Can of Eagle Brand Milk
1 (8 oz) Carton of Cool Whip (divided)
1 Box of Vanilla Wafers
6 Bananas

1. In a medium bowl whisk together pudding and milk until thick (about 3 minutes).
2. Cream together Eagle Brand Milk and cream cheese in a stand mixer (about 2 minutes).
3. Pour pudding into Eagle Brand Milk mixture and mix until well combined (about 1 minute).
4. Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip and set aside.
5. In a large bowl alternate: 1 layer of Vanilla Wafers, 1 layer of bananas (sliced 1/4" thick), then pudding. Repeat this step until you reach the top of the bowl (or run out of pudding).
6. Use the remaining Cool Whip to cover the top, then sprinkle with a couple of crumbled Vanilla Wafers.

Tastes best if made the night before. I will also sometimes use reduced fat cream cheese and low fat Cool Whip. Neither of us can taste the difference!

{The Swell Season Documentary}

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I fell in love with Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova the moment I saw, "Once." Since then I've seen them a couple of times in concert. This made me fall in love with them all over again.

{Today's Letters}

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, last week when I accidentally locked my keys in the car at the airport you drove 25 miles just to bring me your fleece so I wouldn't freeze while waiting on the locksmith. Don't do these kind of things unless you wanna make out in front of strangers. Dear Trader Joe's, you're officially coming to Dallas! Reason #483 to move to Lakewood. Dear Vintage Camera Nightlight, you 1, Gloworm, 0. Dear Husband, we go together like eggs & bacon, salt & pepper, bread & butter, milk & cookies, meat & potatoes. To the moon!

I wanna know how many of you have ever locked your keys in your car. Then I suggest we start a side business cramming doorstops behind windows and tapping the unlock button with a steel rod. Rolling in the Benjamin's, we would.

{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, this past week we ran together three times. Working out with you is one of my favorite things to do! Dear 6-Day Staycation, thank you for reminding me of the peaceful moments brought by a good book. Hoping to implement more of you in the days ahead. Dear Butcher's Son Food Truck, your Reuben brat and lime fries were by far the best food we tasted at Food Truck Friday's. Thanks for making the Park Lane parking lot the place to be for lunch in December! Dear Emma, I can't believe our blog will be two years old in April. I think we should celebrate with malts and a new yard game.

Over and out,

Did you read any good books over the holidays? I read "Lone Survivor" (a true story about the only survivor of Navy SEAL Team 10). Now I have fighting dreams and want to be a Navy SEAL. PS, Em updated our "Best of Dallas" list with our food truck recommendations. You can check them out here!

{The Art of Bread Making}

Monday, January 02, 2012

Recently I had a chance to make something for a friend that kept me home most of the day. It was liberating. A great reminder to slow down, appreciate the process, and to make the most of the in between moments that are often filled with mindless web surfing.

{Happy New Year!}

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Today was filled with: naps, reading, a run, our weekly questions, the removal of Santa (tear), goal setting, homemade black eyed peas and football.  A fantastic start to the New Year. Btw, I'm convinced fresh starts are as life giving as 12 hours of sleep or the first fallen snow. Anyone else with me?
