Friday's Letters

Feb 1, 2013

Dear unemployment,
Siyonara sucker.
I'm officially employed as a Physician Assistant to an orthopedic surgeon and I start Monday!
I've enjoyed my two months as a housewife, but boredom has officially set in.
It's gonna be hard to leave this face every morning though.
Dear Cafe Brazil,
Why you gotta be so darn good?
Dear cutest bridesmaid invitation in America:
I'm SO pumped to be a part of my best friend's wedding, in Grand Cayman!
Dear Carol Paul,
Can I be you?
Dear apartment complex,
Y'all are cray.
. . . but its kinda cool that this made national news
. . . and this is how Charlie felt about it:
Dear Josh,
I am SO blessed to be your permanent roommate.
For life.
Josh lost a bet this week, which meant I had the privilege of posting this on Facebook.
He wasn't too happy about it, but hopefully all the positive comments he received will boost his confidence into making more videos!

Dear anyone reading this page,
If you want to support St. Judes and also have the chance to win some pretty awesome prizes like a Denali, $1000 VISA card, $1000 to Dillards, Wal-Mart, & Best Buy, an iPad mini, a macbook, a 4-wheeler, hunting trip, fishing trip, or a whole assortment of guns then go visit to buy raffle tickets (click the Donate/Raffle tab)
My hometown has hosted this auction for over 30 years, and last year was the first time for us to break the 1 million dollar barrier.
Our town raises the most money for St. Jude than any city per capita in the world.

Since the auction started our little town of 13,000 people has given over 10 million dollars.
Here's some stats of the money raised from the last 8 years:
2005: $509,179
2006: $703,604
2007: $755,846
2008: $788,611
2009: $876,264
2010: $881,885
2011: $943,628
2012: $1,065,235
Help us help the kids of St Jude by breaking a million again this year, and maybe you can win something in the process!

Wow! I can't believe that thing about the dog poo. I mean, it's actually a great idea. It seems expensive for them, though... Guess not if people are paying them $250 for every poo left around the complex.

Halie Renee said...
