Can you find your comment?

Dear You Guys,

DUDE! I understand the enthusiasm! Chipotle is oh so delish! That cilantro white rice….YUM.  And while I relish the Chipotle myself, I do I feel for you a bit. Beans + husband = not a pretty thing. Speaking from personal experience, that is. Good luck with that.

So Chipotle’s menu works with Craig’s caveman diet?

You know what disturbs me about Chipotle? It’s how HEAVY it is. Like I’m walking out of chipotle, burrito bag in hand, and I can barely carry it. And then I think “wow. all that is going to soon be in my stomach.” It just seems wrong. Yet I still return. Over and over again.

You don’t have Chipotle???  How on earth have you survived?  The closest one to us is 2 hours away but luckily it is also near my mom’s house.  Maybe one day they will decide to bless us with their presence but until that day I am sure my husband will continue to email them.

That is hilarious!  Craig better make sure he’s got a tent to camp out there for a few weeks before it opens.  Does he have the location mapped out and a plan in place for when the doors open?  You may never have to move again!

I can totally understand his excitement. We got our very own Chipotle recently and it is da BOMB!  I am petitioning them for a drive thru window.

I love me some Chipotle. In college, I used to eat two burritos in one sitting. It makes me sick just thinking about it.  How can you not love a burrito that is bigger than your face?  And heavier than your three-year-old?  With rice.  INSIDE it?  Congratulations. Better than winning the Nobel Prize…

“Screaming like a banshee” words every man loves to hear referring to his voice.  Can I say I made a similar call to my husband when I discovered, as I was picking up our Saturday morning coffee, that they were building a Chipotle directly across from the coffee establishment?

Oh my god Liz, you have me dying over here.  I don’t get screaming phone calls, and thank the lord for that, but I DO get picture texts full of exclamation points in order to fully drive the excitement home. Case in point: The day I received a message with a picture of a brand-new gas grill. Sitting in my den. That pretty much told me everything I needed to know.

In Craig’s defense- it’s pretty big news.  I’d be screaming, too! What have you done without a Chipotle all this time?!?!?!

I’m totally thinking of Will Ferrell in “Anchorman” screaming “I’m trapped in a glass box of emotion” followed by a ton of mumbo jumbo that no one can make out.

Love, love, love your new look! But I’m really in love with your daughter! Is it wrong that I was semi-distracted by the naked Barbie in the background?

I missed the naked Barbie, though. I was too busy marveling over the stellar air guitar action. Seriously. That’s talent.

If you forced me to critique that performance, I’d say that the shoulder dancing really brings out the snazz, but what really makes it is the naked barbie being carried by her feet. tres moderne.

She made this tune up, right? Please tell me I am not that out of touch with current music.

Wow, is Kate the spitting image of you or what?! I could totally see you being 5 years old and singing that song. And I have only met you once! Wow.

Huge thumbs up from Ellie. She keeps asking to watch it again and if she can be friends with those little girls.  Maren claims she “knows that song”!  She and Miss H could groove together (just like their mommies!)

As a mother of all boys, I cannot even imagine so much sugar in the house.  Ouch.  So sweet my teeth hurt.  I seriously LOVE Kate.  Does she do parties?  She is yummy. And li’l sis trying to keep the beat in the background? Ah, gaaaaaa! DY-ing here. Do you have this everyday???  I just get to step on hotwheels and legos.

Love,
Liz

    HAHAHA. I love that last comment. I have one of each, but still stepping on hotwheels seems to be the norm around here too. Though, we do get an occasional little jiggy from Scooby when my ringtone comes on. (BEP Boom Boom Pow).

    Wow. I’ve never seen myself TWICE before! Careful or I’ll get a big head. BIgger than the head I already have.

    Seriously. I have a big head. Hats are a problem.

      Me, too! And I’m not kidding! My giant noggin has been plaguing me my whole life! It’s also a trait I’ve passed along to both of my girls.

        My family is full of giant noggin’s and we tease each other about it mercilessly.

    Too much good stuff at your blog lately to cover in one comment – between the new look, the Dear You Guys, the upside-down-naked Barbie, I’m beside myself!

    If only there’d been some hot Blissdom dancing with a purse and a glass of wine it would’ve been…hey, wait a minute.

    Forget it. Your blog is perfect…

    So funny! I really need to try writing one of these letters — it’s just intimidating to have the letter flow as seamlessly as yours.
