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!"

laughed out loud lots on sunday-when my running buddy 'forgot' her trainers at work-so we just went for coffee and ccake instead! Did not ride an invisible horse though...maybe next weekend!

I was given the book of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for Christmas by my penpal in Kansas - thanks to a rainforest themed website we have this amazing trick for delivering birthday or Christmas presents which means that we don't have to pay a huge amount of shipping etc.

My weekend was hard but awesome too. Friday I went to see The Lion King in London - yes I sang very loud! Especially to The Circle of Life and Be Prepared.

I did loads of washing which made me super tired and kinda grumpy (I might try the warm laundry trick next time might make me feel better lol)

I had a little cry too but that was because everything was just getting to me.

I got a text on Saturday asking if I'd babysit my friend's kids this evening so that he could take his wife on a surprise date night. I was like "yes most definitely!!! Date night is important hubby-wifey time!"

Can't wait to see her reaction when she realises all the bits her hubby sorted for this evening :)

P.s. I danced round the living room to Soulja Boy playing on my foster son's phone - I used to be a rock girlie - I think he's mellowing me out and it's kind of scary!

Just want to say hi and absolutely loving your blog! It's one of my favorite daily reads. I spent my weekend taking silly pictures of my niece, brother and I - I will send one over soon!

I started Extremely Loud & Incredibly close last night, and cried for the first 1/2 hour of the book.I worked out twice this weekend with my bestie and I had some good laughs with her.

Read and saw Extremely Loud & Incredibly close because I saw it here. :) Touched me and made me love NYC even more.

Took a photography class that made me drool over my dream camera even more.

Spent saturday being lazy with my hubby, watching TV, playing games and doing laundry.

Learned that when fighting with hubby over stupid meaningless stuff, it is best resolved with one person getting naked and trying to discuss things. You cannot fight naked - and there were many giggles. Hey dont judge until you try it - breaks all barriers of pride and anger down. :)

Friday night - massage

Saturday - photographing my niece's bridal shower, finding out I won a major award from a local camera shop, celebrated a "couple-friends" new kitchen with dinner at Torchy's and watching Tangled.

Sunday - made about 5 lbs of caffeinated chocolate while singing along with my latest Glee song aquisitions, followed by an awesome evening serving in the kids ministry at church.

Altogether one of the best weekends ever!

Saturday night, the husband and I made turkey tacos topped with baked avocado fries (found on Pinterest) and some ranch dressing. It was definitely a meal worthy of a "Holy deliciousness, Batman!

I grilled up a steak that was scrumdiddlyumptious! I managed to get marinade all over my kitchen, but it was worth it.

I LOLed at a dinner party with my community group from church. They remind me that real people still exist within the church in Washington, DC.

Got to dance and laugh with great friends at the Lady antebellum concert in Bloomington, IL last night. And got to spend the weekend with my boyfriend in Wisconsin, which made me so grateful for a Godly man like him.

I didn't realize how great my weekend was until I read your post and thought about your follow-up Qs...

I saw "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and although it was a sad sad story, I really liked it and thought it a compelling story.

I went to an ORU bball game, which was a win.


Sunday I went to church, raked and bagged leaves (much overdue), made dinner with my roommates and then danced afterwards and then we all sat down in the living room for our individual "reading time" where I continued in The Help.

It was such a pleasant weekend!

Friends and I listened to "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" and we all danced to it which made me laugh (two birds with one stone. Boom!)

We had a progressive dinner (the best) where I ate bruschetta, mushroom and potato soup, and texas sheet cake. delectable joy.

keep writing those letters! they're the best!

I can't wait to read/watch Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close! I'm on the list at the library, so hopefully I'll get it soon.
I'm also reading The Hunger Games, which, had I not been out in public when I finished the first one, would have made me dance around in circles.

I bought tickets for the same concert when it comes rollin' in to Evanston! Pumped.

Love your blog! Cheers up my days!

The best part of the weekend was when a complete stranger stopped me and gave me the most genuine compliment. I am grateful for people who love first.
