Dear Friday

by Andie Mitchell on April 29, 2011

Dear Friday,

Can I get a mimosa?

Hold the orange juice.

And the cup.

You know what, if you could just pass me the champagne bottle-

Nope, I’m great with popping it open.

Yes, I’ll use my teeth (mom, look the other way).

I’m just so tickled you’re here. And we should celebrate. Really we should.

Celebrate, I say!




Dear Reader,

I would have had a wonderful recipe to share with you this morning, but my computer was infected with malware and therefore decided to shut down last night. I will be restoring all of my extremely narcissistic and inappropriate pictures of myself and food now. You’re more than welcome. Please expect more of my favorite [egomaniacal and eccentric] I-love-food-and-so-should-you recipe posts to come.

And also, I love you.


Too much?

Get back to me.

Agh sorry to hear about your computer woes!! Whenever wordpress has issues it always throws me into a mad panic. But yes, I think we need some champagne. It’s Friiiiidayyyyy! :)


Gina April 29, 2011 at 7:17 am

I most definitely drank cheap champagne straight from the bottle on occasion…ah college days, you are missed…but not your hang-overs!


Lauren at Keep It Sweet April 29, 2011 at 7:21 am

If I could, I’d be right over with 2 bottles of champagne!


Di April 29, 2011 at 7:40 am

I’m sorry about your computer! That’s so awful!

…I’ll be on the next flight out of Logan with a bottle of champagne. (I wish!)


Liz @ Tip Top Shape April 29, 2011 at 7:59 am

hahahaha, only you could have your computer go on the fritz and still deliver a post like this. With that said–looking forward to the forthcoming recipes!


Cindy April 29, 2011 at 8:05 am

Leah @ Why Deprive? April 29, 2011 at 10:56 am

Someone needs to invent a computer that works 100% perfectly all the time. It would make them SO rich.
Im ready for some champagne too. Pretty sure it would soothe my sore throat beautifully! :)


Lisa April 29, 2011 at 11:12 am

Dear Friday afternoon –

Can I please have an Irish coffee hold the coffee?

Thank you,

Andie, btw, I love the 3-part series thing you have going on! I have enjoyed reading them :-)

Ugh computer problems are sometimes the absolute hardest things to deal with on a day-to-day basis. I always feel really spoiled and obnoxious saying it, but if our jobs didn’t require a computer that worked 100% of the time but supplied us with one that worked, say, 50% of the time… I wouldn’t have to complain!!!


Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food April 29, 2011 at 7:19 pm

mmm champagne….


Stacy April 29, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Andrea, due to a busy week my Read Can You Stay for Dinner Time was taken up with work & family. So I got to read all of this week’s posts in one sitting. Thank you a thousand times. You are a delight.


Riss April 30, 2011 at 2:24 am

Yuck about the computer drama! But I’m so glad you backed everything up! One smart cookie, you are.


Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun April 30, 2011 at 4:45 am
