It's Friday! (Letters & Fancies)

Dear Weekend... Until 3 days ago I thought you were going to be a 3 day long one.  What genius at my company is responsible for that screw up?? Ugh...

Dear Rain... I love that you arrived just in time for the split pea soup I made yesterday in the CrockPot!  But, you don't need to stay all weekend, OK? Thanks.

Dear Top Chef: Seattle... I haven't seen your premiere yet, but I should have time to watch you this weekend on the DVR.  I have enjoyed all of your previous incarnations so I assume I am going to love you.

Dear Readers/Followers... I've jumped up a bunch since being featured on a few blogs, and (I'm sure) due to my BRAVE giveaway.  Welcome to all the new people!  I'm happy to have you and hope you'll stick around for a long time.  :-)  (Also, hugs to all the "old" people, of course!  hehe)

Dear Boyfriend... Yes, I DO think it would be fun to go to one of these horse show extravaganzas we've been seeing on billboards around town lately.  And yes, it's kind of weird that I have never heard of these before and now there are TWO extremely similar shows in town this month.  But's a date! :-)  xoxoxo

And now, time for Friday's Fancies!  
This week's theme centers around bonfires, and what you would wear to one!
Alison had this to say about the theme:  I hope you'll join me by concocting your most beautiful bonfire look. One of my favorite fall traditions is spending an evening around the bonfire, eating s'mores and staying cozy.  I only wish we could all get together for a night of blogger fun and stories around a fire.
(I totally agree!  Blogger bonfire?  Count me in!)

Here's what I'm thinking, for a beach bonfire... 
because, for me, there really is no other kind of bonfire!  
We actually go down to Mission Bay pretty often for BBQ/bonfire/fireworks watching, but not as often this time of year.  It's all about layering! 



As long as there are plenty of these...

I'll be just fine!  

Happy Friday, friends!!  
Enjoy your weekend, I know I will, even if it is only 2 days.

Congrats on the recent spike in your readers! I definitely think there is a direct correlation between how much time you put into your blog and how many other people read it. You def have to be committed, but it is worth it! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!
