dear husband: thank you for the pick-me-up sonic drink on your way home...dear hudson: it's been a crazy week and you have been an absolute champ...so proud. dear diapers.com: please get your act together so that we can have our boxes of diapers here on time. dear nana and papa: just letting you know...you both are amazing...oh and you send the most amazing packages for little man. dear grocery store: I really have a love hate relationship with you. you take way too long, the people inside of you are super rude and disrespectful, but then you put food on my table and in our bellies. I can't decide which one I hate/love more. dear weather:not ready for you to change...I know it's inevitable but this 60+ degree weather has been amazing in December. dear best friend skype session: you were so needed, so wonderful, and exactly what I needed. dear friends who are having baby girls: I am having SO much fun shopping for those little ones. those little pink shoes, tutus, and "big as their head" bows all make me want YOU to have more! haha. dear self tanner: thank you for getting me through the winter. dear christmas: 16 days until we fly out, 18 days until we see extended family, 19 days until we wake up to Hudson's face on Christmas morning, and 19 days and a few hours until he plays more with the wrapping paper than the presents...so stinkin' excited!
