little letters

I've been seeing these little letter posts around blogland and I thought it'd be fun to try it out! I'm sure there is a link up somewhere... but I'm the worst at keeping track! I enjoyed writing these so don't be surprised if you see more of these in the future :)

Dear April fool's day, I totally forgot about you! So when I woke up Sunday morning and checked FB and the rest of the social media I'm addicted to... I believed EVERYONE that said they were pregnant! Sad for me.

Dear netflix, why can't you just let us watch the most recent season of Bones? I am not a fan of the waiting game. Hulu wants us to pay them to watch it, but we're already paying for you! So please, I beg, hurry up and get the latest season playin'! On another note, thank you for giving me such easy access to watch all the garbage I could ever want. One Tree Hill, Glee, etc. I love it all!

Dear weather, we have been getting along sooo well! Why did you have to turn nasty on us? Snow, wind, cold temps? REALLY?

Dear woman who backed into our truck, you thanked me for being so sweet about the situation?? Thank YOU for being so honest and leaving a note with your info! It is tragic to think about how little honestly is left in the world these days. There was no room in our hearts to be angry because we were so grateful for that note!

Dear husband's work schedule, I still hate you.

Dear husband, I still LOVE you ;)

Dear ocean, we'll be seeing you in about a month! A week on the beach is just what this girl needs. I can't. wait.

LOVE Netflix! I just started watching One Tree Hill for the first time ever and admittedly it took me a few episodes to really get into it. I'm not starting season 2, though, and loving it!!

Pamela said...

Cute letters :) On Friday's, Ashley from Adventures of Newlyweds host a link up!! I love it! We have been thinking about getting Netflix/Hulu, but not sure! Oh gosh, I hate that the weather is torturing you like that!! Soooon you will be laying out on the beach with your hubby!!

Liz said...

Oye April Fools! I didn't even check Facebook I didn't want to see all the fake pregnancies to be left out of. Umm Ocean? Lucky girl!!

P! said...

I hear you, lady! Netflix is totally hit-or-miss... such a bummer! Also, I'm so with you on the woman who backed into your truck. As much as that sucks, there are SO many dishonest people who won't accept the blame. My car got banged into the other day and... nothing. Just get to deal with the dents on my own. Glad you're getting by okay and hopefully some warmer weather will head your way! Thinking of you. :)

Amber said...

I love this! I am shocked that that lady left a note! She has some good karma coming her way! Thanks for entering my giveaway!

I am so glad someone left a note! Someone hit my car in high school and left a couple thousand dollars in damage, but no note!

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

Netflix got me through the nasty sick last week. Have you watched Mad Men? I am so in love with the fashion from the 60s right now!

rachel said...

Randi said...

cute! I just started this last Friday, it was fun!

Erin said...

Don't you love when someone surprises you with compassion/honesty?! What a sweet lady to leave a note!

Ps- what beach are you going to?! We're taking a beach vacay next month too and I cannot WAIT!

Cindy P said...

Thanks for this post! You totally inspired my blog post for the day! Love it!

I love Netflix, too. We watch it all the time! And basically because they don't have current seasons of things we subscribe to Hulu+ so we can have all the current episodes of our shows. haha! It's cheaper than cable!

I'm excited for your vacation! We're going on our beach vacation in just a little more than 2 weeks and I'm super excited, too!!

Kirsten Wiemer said...

ahhh you are so cute.
going to the beach, so jealous.
also, i've been watching bones, netflix can be frustrating some times.
also, i just want warmth, utah isn't very fun when its bipolar.

Alyx said...

I love Netflix! I do hate how long it takes them to get new seasons of stuff, though!
YAY for a vacation to the ocean!! I love it!
Sorry about the crappy weather.
And seriously - how kind of that woman to leave her information. Honesty is so rare these days!

C.Curley said...

Courtney, come to Georgia. It's 90 degrees here this week. I'm already dreading the summer. Want to switch places for a bit? :)

Shauna said...

I totally agree with you on the Netflix and Weather.. a beach vacay! Im jelly. Where ya going?

Keri said...

Ahhh Netflix! The pros outweigh the cons, don't they?! :) Sooo jealous you get to go to the beach!

Whitney Leigh said...

Dear Ocean, when Courtney comes to see you come back with her and come see me. I miss you.

and I'm so glad the lady left a note. It's true. Hardly anyone these days does that anymore.

Andrea Dickherber said...

Last night I finished watching the entire series "Greek". Sometimes, Netflix totally kills my productivity haha.
And hooray for beach trips! We've lived a mile from the beach for three months now, and I still get all giddy when I see the ocean :)

Happy Tuesday!
Andrea

I hate that about netflix! I too forgot about April Fools Day. I LOVE pulling pranks. I failed miserably.

CourtneyJo of The Everything Soap Blog said...

I completely forgot about April fools day to. Yesterday I was looking around on Facebook and saw all these random gags like people pretending they were pregnant, and was like 'What's going on!?'

Lisa Campbell said...

Ugh, sorry to be negative, but I think the whole fake pregnancy thing is the WORST April Fool's joke. So unoriginal, and when I see the sincere comments congratulating them, I feel so bad. Plus, I know a lot of people who are trying to get pregnant and it's no joking matter. But anyway . . . you're the coolest, Courtney.

tinajo said...

Good theme for a post! :-)

Melanie said...

Oh LOVED this post Court!!! Gosh. I just love you. When I'm reading some of your posts, I have to stop & think... did I write this? Lol... we are very similar in many ways, & I'll take it (cause you are simply AWESOME!!!)

What a sweet honest lady to leave y'll a note. There is not enough of that these days! I heart Netflix bunches too! We switched to Blockbuster for a while, & it sucked monkey bums,) Hope you get some pretty weather for this Easter weekend my friend!

XOXO

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

LOVE your letters Courtney. :) I am so thankful for good and honest folks...so happy the lady left you a note about the truck. I hope your weather turns nice again SOON! And oh...ocean....you are going to have SO MUCH FUN on your vacay!!! :D

Jessica said...

Haha great letters. I fell for a lot of the April fool's day jokes too. And that's wonderful that the woman who backed into your truck left a note. There aren't a whole lot of people who will do that these days. :)

xx Jessica

Aspiring Kennedy said...

netflix can seriously stuff it. :)

Emma Frances said...

Your blog looks so different and I love it! :] It took me a bit to figure out whose blog it was! Haha. But I love these little letters! And I totally forgot about April Fools' Day too! Haha. Woops!

Lindsay [Elle Elizabeth] said...

Oh no, your poor car!!! It's very hard these days to find honest people and actually care about others!

Eloquent English said...

Shaylynn... I BLAHWG. said...

YOU STILL WATCH TREE HILL!?!?!?!? OMG.

When they axed p. sawyer & lucas scott, my heart stopped, so therefor I stopped watching it. it just broke my heart.

I'm coming with you to the ocean right? right? really, just stop in st. g, and pick me up. I'll even ride in the friggin' trunk.

Remember how we're getting Krave next week, remember. we're doing it next week, i've decided for us.

Caitlin C. said...

I definitely forgot about April Fool's Day too!! Oops :) So jealous you're going to the ocean!

Lachele said...

I LOVED LOVED watching American netflix. I don't get HALF the shows on the Canadian netflix. I am sad to be home for that one reason alone. That and the boy is still down there.. rude. ha. Thanks for the well wishes with my foot. Broken bones are the worst.

Kaysie said...

Thank you! Don't let that picture of the butterfly fool you into thinking I'm a good photographer though - it was completely on accident that it looks so nice

:)

And I agree, Dear Netflix, please let us watch the most recent season of ANYTHING ;)

lori said...

so nice that the girl left a note when she hit your truck. hope the damage isnt too bad!

CapeCodCollegiate said...

This idea of Love Letters is easily the most precious idea I've seen in the blogosphere in a LONG time. I hope you don't mind, but I may steal the idea :)

Bree said...

Ahhhh I can't wait to see the ocean either!! We've still got two months... Booooo! ;)

That Girl said...
