Letters of Intent - Flying High

Friday could not come fast enough this week.  It’s been a rough one, so I’m sticking to fun stuff.  Well, at least I hope you find it fun too… join in for this week’s Letters of Intent from Julie Foursons!  (Yes Julie, that is now your official name… unless you want me to keep referring to you as King Julien…)




Dear Lee Jeans,

I appreciate all you do to make clothes fit us non-supermodel types.

Cool that you build in tummy panels that almost don’t suffocate me.  Though I think the name of the game is “displacement”… I see that muffin top – you ain’t fooling me.

But really, I when I finally get the nerve to try your new super-duper make me skinny pants; I gotta be honest:

printing this ELEVEN times around the inside of the waistband???

Just makes me think:


Jenny Craig


Ouch.  Don’t rub it in.


Muffin Top




Dear Fellow Garage Salers,


You snooze.

You lose.


Isn’t it fabulous?!?!



Hangin’ My Backyard




Dear Hammock Makers,


Don’t hammock stands come in standard sizes?


Then why would you make a replacement hammock that is TOO LONG for a regular stand?

Don’t tell me it’s just more stretchy.

And surely don’t tell me any other possibility for why MY BUTT WAS ON THE GROUND.


Jenny Craig.  Jenny Craig.  Jenny Craig



Miffed Muffin Top


p.s.  You’re welcome for omitting the picture of that.




Dear Itty Bit,


I asked if you wanted to go the air show this weekend.

Air show???  What’s an air show Mommy?

An air show?  Oh honey….

Dear Blue Angels,


You have a new addict.

Itty Bit is WILD for you!


I kinda heart you too.  In a heart-in-my-throat kind of way.

And just because these may be the most amazing stunts I’ve ever seen… for your viewing pleasure:

Ooh i love the table set! It is gorgeous. I love the blue angels too. So amazing.

Sylvia Plathypus said...

Ooh, LOVING the Blue Angels stunts!! Hubs was AF, and they have the Thunderbirds do the air's pretty damn neat, if you can tolerate the flyovers....LOL Also loving the notes to Itty Bit and to the hammock makers. What on earth could they be thinking with a king sized hammock for a standard stand?? What a bunch of douchecanoes. =) SO glad you found some good jeans to wear!! Will have to keep that type in mind for when I go jeans shopping this favorite pair went the way of the "dreaded cooter hole", as one of my favorite followers put it. xD So I am in the market for newbies. May I ask where you got them from?

Leiah said...

Save me a seat at the precious table set - I'll be there as soon as I can!

Floortime Lite Mama said...

I love love love this
feel the same way about the slimmig jeans BTW

Floortime Lite Mama said...

ANd that table set is AMAZING

Brandi said...

LOVE, LOVE the little table and chairs! Nothing makes me happier than a fabulous garage sale find!

Just so you know, a picture of you in the hammock would have sent this post over the top... just sayin'... (and Mr. Daddy, that's your cue to sneak a picture the next time Rach is lounging b/c the visual in my head is just too funny not to see the real thing). ;)

renee said...

dear rach,

i'm loving the table and chairs!!! what a great find!
signed, super jealous of your garage sale skills
dear mr. daddy,
please take rach and itty bit to the airshow because that would just be awesome!!!
sincerely, got rach's back
dear blue angels,
are any of you single??
love, cute and curious in stlouis.

I've always wanted to see an airshow! That looks amazing (I'd probably pee myself with excitement in the midst of it, so it's probably a good thing I've never been).

LOVE the table & chairs -- that's a great garage sale score!

Kmama said...

That table set is soooo cute! I want one!

LOL at the hammock. I would love to see a pic of you on the ground. I'm laughing right now just imagining it!

Bits-n-Pieces said...

yep..i have the same issues with the jeans. If they are gonna hide my junk, they don't need to advertise that they are hiding it. Cuz then everyone KNOWS!!!

Kelly said...

I laughed out loud at the Jenny Craig comment - I mean really loud!

I had that moment when Cam looked at an old picture of me in a bikini and said "Mommy I didn't know you used to be skinny"

Can you said Weight Watchers?

Big Mama Cass said...

HAHA ALL my jeans are like that! Jeans are evil! LOL

Foursons said...

I own Lee shorts that say that on the waistband. hahaha

I love the table and chairs you got! Awesome, awesome, awesome.

I want a hammock in my yard, but I know how much those things cost. I'm surprised that stand isn't a standard size. Hmmm...

Air shows are fun, enjoy this weekend!

And thanks for linking up when I totally skipped out on TST this week. *sigh* Hopefully I'll have a more permanent laptop soon!

That table and chairs is nice. I hope you have fun at the airshow.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Oh I LOVE the Blue Angels! Laughing with you at those Jenny Craig moments! They come too dang often, don't they?

Unknown said...

Ok, so tell Mr. Daddy that he will have to answer to me if he doesn't take you all to the air show! My dad was friends with the official Blue Angels artist when I was little, and the commander would fly into our tiny airport to review art designs with our friend. They knew my plane addiction, so the other guys that came with the commander would let me sit in the cockpit and learn all about the planes while the big guys talked about poster designs. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Blue Angels!!!!!

Unknown said...

Mr. Daddy -

If you do not take Itty Bit to the air show, you & I will have words.

the Blue Angel fanatic

He & Me + 3 said...

What a super cool video. I hope you get to go to the air show. How fun.
Jealous of your cool yard sale find. Wow.

Floortime Lite Mama said...

Oh and I LOVED the picture of the tables

Dyann said...

Okay 2 things:

Too funny that you mentioned Lee Jeans. I noted to myself not 2 nights ago that I've had the best luck with Lee jeans as far as fitting mostly correctly.

And almost daily for the last year, Lee has added, "Thank you for the Blue Angel planes" to his prayers. When they practice every summer, they fly right over our house!

Killlashandra said...

The blue angels are so much fun. How cool you guys went to see them. :) said...

Let's see...

great garage sale find!

I had the same problem with my hammock...what the heck!

And...I love air shows :)
