Friday Letters #53

Happy Friday Y'all! 

I hope you had a wonderful week. Matt and I are off for Mongolia tomorrow, and we are so excited. 

Here's how our week looked. 

Dear Schmitt Family, Thanks for letting us tag along again last weekend. We had such a great time bowling and eating American food. I am surprised that I actually won a game. We played three games and I broke over 100 in two of the games. And the food at the members club… OMG! Buffalo wings- curly fries! So good. 

Dear 3D IMAX Movie, To be honest- I am not a fan. I like the IMAX screen, but I hate the 3D part. We saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I wasn't too impressed- but an American movie is an American movie. 

Dear New Middle School Schedule, Thanks for going well again. I am still really liking the schedule. So keep on keeping on. 

Dear Chicken Man, Thanks for coming back. We missed you. Your chicken is always so delicious. We love when we can get such a cheap meal that is already cooked for us. Yum Yum! 

Dear Big Brother, Could this season be any worse. Like for real- such a boring season. At this point, I am ready for Amazing Race to be back on. As long as Frankie doesn't win- I'm fine. Dear McDelievery, Sometimes you are a necessary part to my week, especially if Matt leaves early for work and I stay home. 

Dear Fever and Sore Throat, I gotta be honest- dropping by the day before my trip is not very nice. Last night, I was alternating between having the fever sweats to the fever chills. UGH! My director made me go to the doctor before work, so I got some medicine to help. I am feeling better now, and I just hope the fever stays away. On the bright side- I experience a Korean doctor all by myself and survived. It was quite the experience. I went right after lunch and got helped right away. And I got pills and my visit all for about $8. Love me that National Health Insurance. 

Dear Chuseok, Thanks for giving us a 5 day weekend. We are so ready for a break. We are excited to travel around Mongolia. Many thanks to our directors for these yummy gifts. 

And that's about all that happened this week. 

Don't forget this weekend is Grandparent's Day, so make sure say I love you to your grandparents. 

Nana, Papa, Grandma, Grandpa, Nana, Grandpa Butchy, and Abuela and Papa- love you lots! 

And remember-  Since we will be a bit busy- I have Casey from True Colours and Caroline from Love Live Travel helping me out on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Make sure to check back next week and read their wonderful posts.

Love, Alex 


  1. Enjoy your long weekend and your trip!

  2. Big Brother is killing me this season! AHHH! I agree - anyone but Frankie (or Victoria, but there's NO way that will happen).

    1. Oh my gosh! I'm so glad I'm not alone in thinking this! I'm glad you're not a Frankie fan either.
