I love Fridays, I love thank you notes, and I love Jimmy Fallon’s Thank You Notes, so, naturally, Friday here on my blog means:

Thank You Notes and Jimmy Fallon!

Thank You Notes| It's FRIDAY, time for thank you notes!

Jimmy’s Thank You Notes

Thank You Notes

I was running a bit behind, so I thought if you guys wouldn’t mind, I’d write out my weekly thank you notes. Do y’all mind? Of course you don’t, you’re here. THANK YOU! ?

Thank you, Labor Day Weekend, for being the long hard kiss goodbye of summer.

Because we were in denial that summer break was coming to an end, we were last minute shoppers. When you’re a last minute shopper you buildup an appetite and stop for sushi. When you stop for sushi and the sushi is on a conveyor belt in beautiful glass domes, it gets dangerous. 😀


Thank you, family, for carbs. How’s mama supposed to ever look like a swimsuit model with all these carbs?!?!


The girls made an AHHMAZING peach pie. I didn’t take pictures of it because we devoured it ASAP. This is the pie crust cookie hearts they gave us before the pie. OHEMGEE those were so goooood.


Sunday my baby girl and my husband made homemade pretzels. WOW!

We had a semi-traditional German dinner and watched the Longhorns Hook ’em. 😉

The carbs are ending for me soon. Well, not completely,  I will allow myself a treat or two. 😀



Thank you, PNW, for making sure to remind us where we live with a lovely sprinkling of rain and gray all day on the first day of school. Good light, who needs good light?

My mascara ran


Our first day of school pictures didn’t come out as good because lighting and rain, but that’s okay our traditional Happy 1ST Day of School Ice Cream was good (that’s what they told me anyway, because no ice cream for me).

LADIES!! I have a high schooler!!!

Thank you, September!!

Each week I’m going to celebrate my birthday with a giveaway!! And yes, the annual candy corn guessing game will still happen. 🙂

Today I’m just warming up, I’m giving a few goodies I picked up that I thought went well with Friday, Thank You Notes, and Jimmy Fallon. In the coming weeks I’m working with an awesome shop owner boss lady and a company that I love. You’ve seen them here before and they are hooking my friends up!

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, here’s what I have for you today.


Y’all I’m a sucker for note cards, pencils, and a good margarita. Although, it’s been forever since I’ve had one! (I must fix that SOON) I take my margarita on the rocks, I hope you do too. 🙂



Here’s how to win these goodies, are you ready? It’s real simple.

The first one to answer this question correctly wins: What is my favorite NFL team?

    Peach pie? Pretzels? I’m moving in to your house!

  2. Jessica says:

    This giveaway is AWESOME! I love the thank you notes, they are so cute and colorful!

  3. Tamara says:

    I was JUST thinking about the carbs thing. I was telling a friend over lunch – who is slim like me – that even though I’m thin, if I wore tight clothing, it would be evident to everyone that I freakin’ love ice cream.
    (I don’t want to change)
    Pie crust cookie hearts! My mom does that when she makes pie!
    Yes to that meme about what killed the dinosaurs.
    As for the NFL, I think I’m too late, but umm.. Dallas Cowboys! haha, just kidding. I saw that it won.

    • MrsA0K2001 says:

      Yeah, that’s me with carbs. I’m not super thin, but I’m small-ish, so yes my carb baby shows. NO TIGHT CLOTHES FOR THIS LADY.
      I love that your mom does that too. 🙂
      That meme cracked me up! I had to share. 🙂
      I knew you would know. 😉

  4. LOL that image with the two ladies talking about how the diet killed the dinosaurs is incredible! Also, I love that segment on Jimmy Fallon, it’s so hilarious!

  5. Lowanda J says:

    No fair Holly! I was at work when this posted! Lol….too funny! Yay to Holly…a true Texas girl like you! 🙂

    • MrsA0K2001 says:

      Sorry, Lowanda. Hey, you have a few more chances to win something coming up in the next few weeks. 🙂
      YAY for TEXAS GIRLS. 🙂

  6. Mary says:

    I’ve always wanted to make pretzels; I bet they came out great. Texas had a great game last week! 🙂 Wow, you have a high schooler, congratulations!

    • MrsA0K2001 says:

      Oh my gosh homemade pretzels are AHMAZING! And surprisingly pretty simple to make (although I wasn’t the one who made them). We got the recipe from an old Rachel Ray magazine. Maybe I should do a blog post on how to make them… thoughts?

      I cannot believe my daughter is already in high school. Thank you. 🙂

  7. Akaleistar says:

    Ice cream and pie and pretzels sound so good! I’ve been hitting the carbs hard lately, but it’s so hard to say no to yummy things 🙂

  8. Terri Steffes says:

    Green Bay Packers!! Well actually that is my favorite team. Can’t wait to find out!

    • MrsA0K2001 says:

      No. Not Green Bay. Although, I have nothing but respect for Mr. Favre and Aaron Rodgers is my Fantasy Football QB. 🙂

  9. What an awesome giveaway. I’ve always wanted to try making pretzels. That one looks yummy.

    • MrsA0K2001 says:

      Thank you.
      The homemade pretzels were so good, I’m considering sharing the process here on my blog, thoughts? We got the recipe from an old Rachel Ray magazine. 🙂

  10. Amanda says:

    These are so cute! The cookie hearts are so adorable 🙂

  11. William says:

    What a great giveaway!!! I know I love getting thank you notes, it seems to be a dying habit.

  12. I’m not sure I can like your blog if you like the Cowboys 😉 Just kidding! My team are the colts!

  13. Kim says:

    That’s so funny about the Paleo diet killing the dinosaurs ? The pie sounds amazing!

  14. Kristin says:

    Peach pie? That is literally one of my favorite pies! Well, I pretty much love peach everything. I load up when we go to Georgia. Haha!

  15. Amanda says:

    I love Jimmy Fallon and sushi and pretzels. Sounds like you have had a great month so far! Except that Longhorn part! I’m a Red Raider 🙂

  16. Veronica says:

    I love your sense of humor and the wonderful retro postcards that went along with your “thank you’s”.

  17. jill conyers says:

    Looks like a great giveaway to kick off the weekend. I don’t have a favorite NFL team.

  18. Bev says:

    Yay for our birthday month!! We also had a rainy, gloomy day on the first day of school around here. I had an indoor playgroup that day at my tiny condo. Let me tell you, five almost 3-year-olds (plus an infant and a toddler) inside a little condo is sheer craziness! 😉

  19. Katriza Luna says:

    Oh! What a fun giveaway! And seriously? Peach Pie? I’m coming over 🙂

  20. Amanda Love says:

    These are awesome! I love writing down what I’m thankful for, if not everyday at least every week. It keeps the good vibes flowing and it makes you feel so blessed as well!

  21. karen says:

    Thank you notes should be a total requirement, right? And I love Jimmy Fallon’s thank you notes every week! So funny!!

  22. Jaime says:

    haha! I am loving the memes! Oh and the cup? I need one ASAP!!!!

  23. Mother of 3 says:

    So much to be thankful for.

  25. Brittany says:

    I love the thank you cards! So cute! Happy birthday month 🙂

  26. Reesa Lewandowski says:

    That pie sounds awesome. I was sad to see summer go but so happy for a new school year!

  27. I admit i can’t live without my carbs. I tried once and failed I became grumpy and irrated. I need carbs.

  28. Sonya says:

    Happy birthday month!!! I’m a September baby too. ☺
    Speaking of carbs, I’ve gone crazy with sugar lately. Since I no longer have my birthday as an excuse it’s time to cut way back on my sugar consumption.

  29. Charlotte says:

    What an amazing giveaway! ALSO! Please tell your daughter that I love her shirt! Super adorable 🙂
    This week’s Fallon notes were really funny!! LOL @ Bachelor in Paradise being called Herpes Island. LOLOL!!
