Little Letters || October.

Friday, October 13, 2017

I'm excited to link up again this month with Kristin from Taz and Belly for her Little Letters series and bring you a few little letters...

Dear People on the Radio who Overshare,
Surely you must know that the person you are talking about might be listening, right? I mean when you say "Hi Valentine. My name is Allison and I need some advice. I have a 16 year old son and my boyfriend has a 17 year old daughter that he lets drink wine sometimes at dinner and my son wants to know why he can't drink like she does" it's not very inconspicuous. Like if your boyfriend is listening, he is GOING to know you talked about him. Even if you didn't say your name, he'd know.

(Even when they don't say their names, their situations are pretty specific where if the other person (friend, significant other, etc) was listening, I'm SURE they'd know it's them. One thing's for sure, I'd never air ANY dirty laundry on the radio!)

Dear (Certain) (Blog) Giveaway Hosts,
It annoys me TO NO END when you announce a winner ONLY on your blog and expect the winner to email YOU. While I TOTALLY appreciate the generosity of the giveaway, we all have to enter our email to enter the giveaway so I know you have it. You can't just email us?

Dear Starbucks/caffeine,
I think I might be allergic to you. And it PAINS me to say that because I not only love you, Starbucks, but I just love the way coffee tastes in general. I hope, hope, hope I'm wrong, but I feel so much better when I don't drink you. 😭😭😭😭

Dear Mother Nature,
According to the calendar, Fall supposedly arrived late last month. Can you please cool down? Even just a little? Pretty please? While I am enjoying being able to wear a sweater in the mornings when I walk to drop Mason off at school, the fact that I don't need it a mere 30 minutes later is not cool (no pun intended) and the fact that it is scheduled to be almost 90 again this weekend is not ok. Where is my boots, scarves, and sweaters weather?

Dear Costco Gas,
You spoil me. Even though I have to wait sometimes up to 20 minutes to get to a pump, the fact that you have organized lines and we all filter in facing the same way is amazing. I went to a regular gas station the other day and almost forgot how to find a pump I could use all the while trying to dodge the people who were driving at me.

Dear Upstairs Neighbor,
I appreciate your love for your plants, really I do. But is it really necessary to water your plants SO MUCH that it literally rains on to my balcony? Like isn't that a taaaaaad bit too much water for said plants?

Dear Holiday Oreos,
Why are you so good? I'm convinced you taste better than regular Oreos and I'm not quite sure why. Either way, I love and hate you for how good you are and how many packages I buy during the holiday months.

Dear October 13th,
In my mind I know you are just another date on the calendar. And even though I don't consider myself an overly superstitious person, I don't love you. And especially during the month of October? You're just asking for all sorts of scary movies to come out on this day and I don't like that.


Can you relate to any of my letters this month?


  1. So I had to switch to decaf coffee permanently after Liam was born. No idea why, but all of sudden it started making me feel sick. But hello decaf!!! Hope this is not a problem for you, because everyone needs Starbucks in their life!

  2. I'm actually a fan of October 13th. My husband and I renewed our wedding vows at Six Flags!!
    I totally relate to the blog giveaway post. There's no reason they can't take the time to email the winner. It's hard for a winner to keep track of going back to blogs to check, especially if they follow a ton of blogs.

  3. Haha I was glad I wasn't at school on Friday the 13th! That is a bummer about the giveaway. An email is such an easy thing to send!

  4. Allergic to Starbucks/caffeine?! Say it isn't so!!!!

  5. Have you tried the mystery Oreos? I saw on IG that they taste like Fruity Pebbles.

  6. I love the Little Letters link-up! It’s so fun. Allergic to Starbucks? NO! That’s such a bummer, friend. We’re still searching for that fall like weather here in Texas. I still think of you when I see the Oreos. Have you tried the Mystery ones? What did you think?

  7. Allergic to coffee? WHAT?! NOOOOOOOOO.
    Let's also talk about the giveaway. Having to go back and email the host is truly so annoying (and dare I say slightly lazy on the host's end?)!
    OH.MYGOSH. I cannot get over HOW HOT it is right now. Currently, 104. No joke. One.hundred.and.four.


I love your comments and I love connecting with my readers! I respond back via email so please make sure that your email is connected to your profile. Thanks for stopping by :)
