Thank You Notes: Living In Yellow Edition

I'm not sure if you watched the Jimmy Fallon special but this household did. Funny people are just so funny to me, hence the funny part. I especially appreciated and enjoyed the whole thank you card writing segment, where he writes thank you notes to any and all sorts of things. I figured it would be fun to do so myself, so here we go. 


Dear Florida Georgia Line, 
Thank you for making douche bags popular again. Never have cut off tanks and leather vests been so trendy. 


Dear Crockpots, 
Thank you for making me look like I spent hours in the kitchen preparing last nights dinner, the night before last nights dinner, and the night before the night before the night before last nights dinner when in reality it took a total of 8 minutes (combined). Who needs cocaine for getting stuff done when you have a crockpot?

Dear Niece, 
Thank you for the frosting licked, oddly sprinkled, and even more oddly shaped friendship cookies you made me. I'll be eating them never but I certainly appreciate the effort and twenty minutes of playing in the dough with your dirty fingers that you spent making them.


Dear Uterus, 
Thank you for the monthly reminder that I am in fact not pregnant. It's not like I actually wanted to enjoy my day anyhow, nor did I want to feel like a human but rather a cat that just got ran over by a train. Job well done on that one. 

Dear Old Women Who Have P!nk As Their Ringback Tone, 
Thank you for making me realize that no matter how old we are, we're still a rock star, we've got our moves, so so what? Or just thank you for reminding me that I should probably never have P!nk as a ringback tone.

Dear Very Jane
Thank you for making the below bracelet in not just one color, but a gazillion, allowing me to choose my favorite three without making me feel like the hoarder that I am. Knowing I left 29 others on the table does something for the part of my heart that likes to say booooo-ya. 

Dear Fuzzy Socks, 
Thank you for reminding me that you are the only thing I truly ever need to own.  
Dear Indiana, 
Thank you for making all of us freeze our balls off. Polar Vortex for life. Or not. 
Dear Father's Instagram Account
Thank you. Just seriously thank you. I can't handle the goodness that radiates on my news feed when you go on a posting frenzy. I'm not sure if it's the whole knowing that you are speaking your captions, or the fact that you post five pictures of the same thing within hours but it's awesome. Please never stop. Stink bugs, patio parties, cold temperatures, document the shaz out of it all. 

Dear Country Music In 2013, 
Thank you for the trucks, girls, good stuff, and tight jeans. You really drove home what life is all about. 

Any thank you notes you'd like to write? Leave them below in the comments or heck, write your own post on em'. You know what they say--if you don't have gratitude, you don't have anything.

  3. Hahaha omg your dads instagram!!!! And as much as I love Florida Georgia Line... I don't love to look at them. Their music is a great time, but they look like a couple of douchey frat boys & that's not a good look.

  6. Oh my goodness. The amount of snow y'all had and the amount of fun your dad had with it makes me laugh. He's precious. When will he be released from blog jail and allowed back on your blog?! I love these thank you notes.

  9. Is that Florida Georgia Line picture a joke?? The one on the left kinda oddly looks like Prince Harry...no? :-) Love that your dad has an Instagram account. I gave my dad a tutorial last night on what a # is.

  14. Dear Erin, Thank you for making me laugh when I'm laying on the couch sick as a freaking dog. Only you can achieve that my friend. Your dad is the funniest man alive. Jimmy Fallon is my boyfriend. Crockpots are from heaven. Country music makes my ears bleed (oops, please can we still be friends?). Love Always, Amy (Baby Mama Juice)

  25. These slay me. Dear FlaGa Line. LOL. I peeped your dad's instagram account and instantly thought OMG I know why Erin is a hoot now.

    Also, I'm coming over to play dress up at your house. Those bracelets are cuuuuute.

  26. I think 'Dear Uterus' was my favorite. I always say that I would prefer an email every month that just says, "hey, it's your girlie parts...we're not making anything this month, so go about your business."

    ReplyDelete
  27. hahahahah I just laughed my ass off at your dads instagram account..I feel like I want to follow him, in the most non-creepy way! lol
    And thank you for saying that about Florida Georgia Line...I seriously thought that I was the only one that though they looked absolutely ridiculous, but never heard anyone else mention it so figured I was probably just going out of my miiiind!
    This post was hilarious..well done on the funnies!

  28. Your dad...is awesome. The country music video had me in tears the first time I watched. I LOVE country, but I play it for everyone who says anything about how repetitive pop and hip hop have gotten. Like noooooo peeps. Its music everywhere in general.

  29. I am going to have to follow your dad in Instagram. So funny! I wish my dad would do this!!!

    I can't believe we had this sweep of FREEZING weather and tonight it will be 60 degrees, with thunderstorms at 3 am here in Alabama. WHAT THE WHAT?

    Happy weekend sister!

  30. Laughing hysterically over your Dad's instagram account. I don't even know the man, but I like him already! I think I will have to follow his account to see more of that awesomeness. :)

  31. I gotta know, do you like FGL?? I like their voices. I like one or two songs. I don't like their look, their rap and their weird fans that think they are country! I know you know real country though, so I'm not lumping you in. I just gotta know where you stand haha

    ReplyDelete
  32. Haha your Dad sounds like my dad, when I started him a facebook account I didn't know I would be creating a monster lol.

    ReplyDelete

  36. Your dads IG commentary literally just made me L O L - I think he needs to produce a guest post again some time in the near future.

    ReplyDelete

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
