Friday's Letters


I haven't participated in Friday's Letters in SO long, but I'm back!!!
Dear Husband: You are the BEST! I love that you still continue to surprise me with such thoughtful lil gifts.  Last week you surprised me with the JT CD already loaded in my car, so when I turned my car on in the morning, it started playing.  What a great way to start my day.  And then this week, another CD? This one with "Wendy" songs.  You are the best and I am so lucky to have you!
Dear Miley: I love you! You are too cute! It has been over a month now that you get to stay out of your crate while mommy and daddy are at work and you are doing great! You are such a smart and well behaved doggie! Next month you are turning 3!
Dear Working out: I'm pretty proud of myself because I am taking you a lot more serious now! I now look forward to working out when I get home from work, which makes husband happy.  You help us find another thing to bond and connect over.  Thank you! Now make me skinny for the summer please! :)
Dear San Jose: You are a great city! I love living here, that is all :)
Dear Federal & State Taxes: I hate you!! You have not been very nice to Jon and I the past 2 years! But just wait, next year WE will be getting cash!

Emotional Day

This is an old post from June 2011, it found it in my drafts... I don't know why I never posted it, so I'm posting it now :) I still remember this day clearly and that apron and recipes have a very special place in my heart.  I love being a part of my husbands family! 


I am SOOO emotional today! I don’t know why?! Actually I think I know why, because I'm getting married very very soon!  I'm still finding it hard to believe, and I get so excited for the big day! It just makes me sit here and think back to the life that I have and everything that has happened to me to get me to the place that I'm at this very moment.

Every time I think about the wedding, Jon or even hear a love song, I fall even more in love with Jon. I never thought that I would love someone as much as I love him and I never ever thought that I would find someone that loves me, all of me, for me. Someone that thinks that I'm cute with all the little things that I do, someone that has no problem buying me a Hello Kitty presents to clutter our home with. He honestly loves me, he doesn’t find my need for cute little things as annoying trait, instead he finds that cute and endearing, as he has told me many time, “that’s part of the reason why I fell in love with you”…I feel so lucky.

Jon works so hard for us, to provide us with a good life, and I really appreciate all of it. He does whatever it takes to make me happy, because he’s happy when I'm happy. I always dreamed of the wedding that Jon is making possible, but I honestly never thought that I would REALLY get the wedding of my dreams, Jon is making all of that come true. He really is my prince charming. I should have him wear a white suite and ride down the aisle on a white horse! Lol .

I never thought that I could feel as loved as he makes me feel.

Last night I got a package in the mail from Jon’s Grandma (Grandma Jones, Betsey’s Mom). It was an apron, along with family recipes. Jon’s grandma, Mom & aunt all wrote down some of the families favorite recipes and sent them to me in the package. That was the sweetest most thoughtful gift I have ever gotten from someone! It made me feel so special, loved, and accepted into their family. It made me feel like they are as excited as I am to be a part of their family.

I cannot wait to start this new chapter in my life. I always dreamed of having this life, and I am SO thankful for it, for Jon and for all of the blessing that God has given me.

Posing with my new goodies! Cant wait to start cooking up some of the recepies!

Perfect Night In Swap: Package Reveal

**(I know we were supposed to post about this yesterday, but my camera and computer decided to be uncooperative, sorry im late!)

A few weeks ago I signed up for the "Perfect Night In Swap" hosted by Linny, over at Linny's vault.  I got paired up with Alyssa who blogs over at Two-Thirds Scarlett, who sent me such an awesome pink filled box of goodies! :)

The concept of this swap was to send each other gifts for a perfect night in, and I sure did get a perfect night in!

I was very excited to open up the box and see only pink! Those are the best kinds of gifts :)
The super cute card that Alyssa sent me!
I was even more excited when I took out some tissue paper and only saw Hello Kitty gifts, YAY!
Alyssa sent me the following goodies:
A Hello Kitty sleep mask
A Hello Kitty cup
A pink loofa (not pictured) 
Burts bee's wax lip shimmer
Pink nail polish
Pink gum :)
Pink lil note book
2 girly magazines 
and of course, the best one
Pink glittery slippers!
How cute are these slipper! I love slippers, I hate walking around barefoot, so you can never have enough slippers :)

Alyssa, Thank you so much for being such a great swap partner, I loved it all.  I hope you enjoyed your goodies too!

And Linny, thank for hosting another fun swap!

Instagram Life

I know, I know, I've been a terrible blogger.  I just haven't felt very inspired lately.... We have lots going on, and I always think "I should totally blog about this" but do i? Of course not! Why? I honestly don't know why, I'm in a blogging rut and i don't know how to get out of it. 

Anyway, I'm not blogging much but what I am doing is posting on my lovely instagram! So you can follow along on my adventures there! @wendyburns

We finally got another wedding day canvas, this is one of my favorite pictures! I wish we could go back and relive that day all over again!

Wanna get this for free??!!! All you have to do is head on over to Sanrio with the coupon below, spend $5 and its all yours! :)  I got mine this weekend, and Im very tempted to go back, spend another $5 and get another one! lol.  I don't know if thats against the rules, but they are so cute, how can you not want more than 1?!! If you "like" hello kitty on facebook, then you've probably already got the free coupon and hopefully the cup too!

Our Palm Springs Vacation!

Back in January, Jon and I headed to Palm Springs for 5 days with our good friends Janet & Phil.  Janet and I went to middle school and high school together, but didn’t start hanging out until after we graduated, funny how life works!  We were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings, and our husbands get along great! I love it!  We also referrer to each other as each other’s “Twin” :)
Jon and I on our way to Palm Springs! YAY!
Pretty cloud views 
We arrived on a Saturday evening, so we just went out to dinner, to  a sports bar so the guys could watch the Blazers game, and then we spent the rest of the evening relaxing and hanging out in the hot tub.
My twin and I
The husbands

I crafted us awesome "Couples Retreat 2013" shirts for the 4 of us.
They are so cool!
The next day, Sunday, the guys golfed all afternoon, so Janet and I decided to go hiking.  We had so much fun, and it was so beautiful, I plan on doing a blog post all about our hike, but here is a lil sneak peek!
After golf and our hike, we went out for margaritas and a bromance ensued :)
Monday, we ventured out together as a group and headed to LA to go to Knott’s Berry Farm.  That was a long and fulfilled day, which will also be getting its own blog post!

Tuesday, guess what the guys did?  Yup they golfed, so Janet and I had a girls day with manis/pedies and some shopping.
The golf course the guys golfed at on Tuesday morning.
The guys
Mr. Burns & I
When Janet and I picked up the guys, we decided to have a little photo shoot :)

I love that we had such a relaxing time on this trip, nothing was really planned and we just took each day as it came.  And it was great to spend some quality time with our good friends.  By Wednesday afternoon, Jon and I did not want to leave! This was our 1st time in Palm Springs and it was just such a beautiful and relaxing place. Hopefully this trip turns into a yearly trip for the 4 of us!

Life lately

I know I've been saying this, but I really am working on getting back to blogging regularly! I think about blogging and posting things all the time, but then I get home....and I seem to have so many other things to do, that I get overwhelmed and just push it off, then it makes me sad because I really do miss blogging, such a vicious cycle! lol.

Here is what life has been like for me lately.  If you have instagram, you should follow me, username: wendyburns.  I post on my instagram very often, I love instagram!

Jon's friend cut his finger when he was at our house, and this was the only band aids we had in the house.  I know he was very excited about sporting such a cute band aid!
Took Miley to the groomers, and as you can see, she was VERY happy about the results.  She looks so much smaller after they cut off all of her hair :(
Saturday night, we watched the UFC fight with Jon's friends...Miley was so attached and wanted to cuddle with me, look at that sweet lil face!  She really is my baby!
Rearranging our bedroom, I moved our rug over to my area.  Not like Jon would mind if this would just leave our bedroom! lol
CRAFTING!!! I'm very excited and proud of my creation! I will be blogging about this next week! The trays used are from the dollar store....I painted them pink.  Such an awesome and cheap craft :)
Surprises from the husband, who needs to find a new hiding spot.....
Happy Friday everyone and hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!!
