mini memos [3]

It's Thursday again, which means it's time for some more mini memos! Throughout any given day, I think of these little letters to myself and things around me, and I finally started putting them down on paper. And thus - "mini memos" was born. This is a little ode to life lately over here, and it's fun to look back and see those fleeting moments that flash through my mind.

Dear crafting...why do you elude me so? I'm doing my best to be crafty with all these fun ideas I have, but I swear that the crafting gene just didn't quite stick with me.

Dear Spencer...we've turned a corner with potty training (via bribery), and I literally have no shame about it. If you want a few skittles for peeing on the pot. Have at it, my boy. I shall give you ALL the skittles.

Dear crockpot...why is it that I fall in love with you again every fall? Between hot ciders, pot roasts, pulled pork and more, we're destined to a busy duo this fall and winter.

Dear Bitmoji...I finally caved and made my own bitmoji because carpe diem and all that. Now I don't know why I did it or what to do with it.

Dear running...thank you for giving me an outlet for all my crazy deployment rage. I just wish you'd let up on my hip a little. This marathon is coming up fast.

Dear cold remind me that summer is coming to a close, and while you're beautiful, you kind of make me sad.

Dear Ryan...I can't wait until you're finally at the South site again! I need me some wifi and face time with my husband again!


And now it's your turn...
Link up your own mini memos here!


  1. This is such a cute lil series! I'm bringing out my crock pot this weekend!!

  2. Hot cider in the crockpot? Why haven't I thought of that!? I don't know what to do with my bitmoji either. Haha!

  3. I love these so much...I just need to remember to write some down (if I can even think of any) You are so witty and clever. I hope you get some Facetime with Ryan SOON!!! You just have to remember to use your takes practice😉 Happy Friday Eve!!!

  4. I'm the same way when it comes to being crafty. It just does not come naturally to me.

  5. i wish someone would give me skittles after going to the bathroom. Ha! jk. but not really. whatever works for potty training, i'm sure i will bribe as well. i am totally digging my crockpot lately as well. so handy! i still don't have one of those bitmoji things, i don't quite understand it lol.

  6. I totally need a new crockpot, I should just bite the bullet and buy one. Ooh, I feel you on you hip issues, my right hip definitely needs to be opened up more and then hopefully my IT band issues will go away. I know I need to stretch every day even if I don't work out, I'm really lazy!! Hope you get some Facetime with Ryan soon!!
