Thank You Notes: Bob the Builder and Birthday Fun

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:

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?

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

Thank you, scary old Bob the Builder toy that my son hasn’t played with in years, for getting my heart pumping OUT OF MY CHEST!! The toy started going off at the bottom of my son’s toy box- I WAS THE ONLY ONE HOME.


Thank you, for reading my thank you letter to my daughter. If you haven’t read it, maybe tissues? 🙂

A letter to my teen daughter. {ad}

Thank you, for joining me on the letter writing to your tween or teen. You could win some mula 😉 #ad

Thank you, Instagram husband. More on that later. 😉

Thank you, mom and dad!!


Thank you, official M&M counters! 🙂


You know the drill… every year for my birthday I have a candy corn guessing game. Well, this year we decided to switch it up and try the new fall M&M’s. It turns out my candy corn counters aren’t digging candy corn anymore. 😀 Maybe they figured you get waaaay more M&M’S than candy corn in those bags.  So, here’s what you have to do to win…

Guess how many M&M's are in the pumpkin!

That’s it!! Who ever guesses correctly or the closest by October 7th wins!!!

But what do you win?

Good question and here’s your answer….


A piñata filled with some fun goodies!! You certainly won’t get cheap piñata candy in here… trust me. 🙂 This giveaway is open to the U.S and Canada. I do have an international giveaway HERE.

The winner is Ashley!!

Her guess: 507

The count: 573


Happy Friday!! Tell me something good about your week. 🙂

  1. YAY! Happy Birthday, beautiful!

    What a fun birthday giveaway! I am going to guess: 263 M&Ms.

    The toy, OMG! My son had this crawling Baby Pooh Bear and it would say, “Follow me, Baby”. It would seriously go off in the middle of the night and scare the ever-loving crap out of me!

    1. Thank you, my sweet friend!! 🙂

      My daughter had a Pooh Bear that talked, too. It use go off at night and it was the scariest thing. The Pooh Bear said our NAMES and everything. (It was programable.)
      Thanks for playing along.

    1. Thank you, Sonya!
      I would rather eat M&M’s too. 🙂
      The kids have loved having M&M’s in the house, we’re almost done with the pumpkin.

  2. Oh, I am terrible at counting M&Ms. I guess 424. See? Terrible.
    Ok that Bob the Builder story reminds me when I was driving the kids back from NJ and had a Toy Story Woody toy in the back seat. Every time I hit a bump, it would yell, but I thought it was other drivers yelling at me. It was Tom Hanks’ angry voice! I was thinking NJ had the worst road rage.. ever.

  3. Happy Happy Birthday! I know you must be excited! I can’t wait to see what fun adventures your family had in store for you today! Always love a guessing game. Let’s see…I think I’m going to go with 362. Thanks for hosting the giveaway and hope your day was a BLAST! 🙂

  4. Jimmy did a thank you note after the Olympics. He said that the bathroom door logo guys were featured in the Olympic logos. You would have to look back for the full funniness of it but it was great.

  5. The candy corn looking like an upside down Donald Trump face totally cracked me up– thank you for sharing Jimmy’s thank-you notes with us, always a pleasure to read!

    What a fun birthday giveaway! I’m going with 243. I’m probably way off, but it was the first number that came to me 🙂

    Also toys that magically go off are creepy as hell!


  6. How fun! I love guessing games. I am going to say 460. 🙂 Happy Birthday, btw! I always enjoy reading this post you do. My son had a toy that went off and the battery was inside it and I couldn’t get it to turn off while he was sleeping (and he was HARD to get to sleep back then)… oh mommy troubles! lol!
