today is wednesday. which means tomorrow is thursday. which means my darling husband is coming home tomorrow evening. and you know what? i’m not ashamed to say that i cannot wait. in fact, i am ecstatic to see his lovely face. which i hope has a beard on it. this week, let’s make sure to tell people that we miss them, that we love them, and how much they mean to us. because i don’t think that’s done quite enough these days. this public service announcement has been brought to you by the letter z. happy humpday!
1) humpday christmas carol: dmx singing “rudolph the red-nosed reindeer”.
i can’t even tell you how much joy this brought my coworkers and me today. oh dmx. you never fail to disappoint me. never change.
2) humpday pinterest win: my crafty letter.
i only burned myself twice with mama hools’ hot glue gun. and this was way less painful to complete than i thought it would be! burns included. it will not end up on a pinterest fail website and it looks ever so cute hanging on our door.
3) humpday charity: st. jude children’s research hospital
this video made me smile. and cry. and open my wallet. it’s just.so.perfect. my favorite part is, of course, when robin williams shows up. because he will always be patch adams to me. sidebar: patch adams was the first movie that ever made me cry. i was 12 and did not know that movies could do that to you.
4) humpday dinner plans: the blue door pub.
i am so excited to go to my favorite place in st. paul and catch up with a good friend who i haven’t seen in months, even though we live in neighboring cities. maybe it has something to do with the fact that he’s a jetsetter who has been in both tanzania and ecuador in the last 5 months, and still manages to hold down a job and have a lovely girlfriend at the same time (hi allison!). so i suppose it’s understandable. regardless, i am so excited for a blucy and some buffalo tots. like whoa.
5) humpday hat: little furballs.
i stumbled upon this little gem at gap the other day. for $10. one thing we probably haven’t discussed in the short time we’ve known each other is how much i love hats. i would wear them all day, err day if i could. and my gosh if this isn’t the most cozy and adorable thing i’ve ever laid eyes on. and you know it has the perfect slouch.
