Actually, my weekend started on Monday ’cause I didn’t go to work this week. So everyday has felt like a Friday. Oh, yeah, baby! Today I am joining Kristen at Taz & Belly for her “Little Letters” link-up.
Took a first stab at little letter writing in September. Found it to be a very therapeutic way to vent…and to express my gratitude. Lest you think I whined and complained in every letter.
Sadly, I could just about copy and paste September’s letters for today’s post. Still dealing with the damage from the AC leak, problems with our pool and an oven that turns itself off on a whim.
Replacement Pair of Codi Booties
Dear Dr. Scholls,
As you must remember from my thank you email in October, I wore my Dr. Scholls taupe Codi booties all over Bavaria during a recent visit to Germany. I had packed a pair of Converse sneakers, a pair of running shoes, some flats and my Dr. Scholls. A day into our trip, my booties became my go-to footwear. Their memory foam insole made wearing them all over Munich, Berchtesgaden, Garmisch, Triberg, Baden-Baden, Ulm and Nuremberg a very pleasant experience. In fact, I wore my booties so much that week, over cobbled streets and graveled paths, that the wore heels down.
But my feet never hurt. Not even the day we walked 23K steps! Thank you for making a bootie that is not only comfortable but stylish, too.
Dear Rack Room Shoes,
On a recent visit to Germany, I wore, almost non-stop, the Dr. Scholls Codi bootie in taupe that I bought from you last fall. Wore them so much as we touristed our way across Bavaria, that the heels wore off…not completely, but unevenly. On our last night in-country, I decided to try to order a replacement pair from Rack Room Shoes online so they would be on their way to me when I got home. Imagine my surprise to find the Codi bootie on sale for $13.99! I couldn’t order them fast enough. Today I broke in my new pair with a full day of shopping. And my feet don’t hurt. Thank you, RRS for a great sale price on my favorite booties.
Nissan Keyless Entry
Yesterday, I made a quick, last-minute grocery run to pick up goodies for my brother and sister-in-law’s visit. I set my purse in the trunk of my green Nissan Altima while I loaded the bags of candy, chips, soda and other assorted snacks into the car. Slammed the trunk lid shut and walked around to get into the driver’s side of the car. Only to discover the door was locked. And then to immediately remember I had just shut my purse and the keys into the trunk with the groceries. Was I ever pleasantly surprised to discover that when I had shut the trunk lid, it hadn’t latched. Why? Because my purse with the keys were in the trunk! Genius. My 2008 green Nissan Altima is smarter than I am. Or at least my keyless entry fob is. And I am so grateful for it.
Dear Bath and Body Works,
Thank you for excellent product support. I am a huge fan of your wallflower plugs and use them all over my home. My first plugs were very basic styles but have recently expanded my collection to include a number of your seasonal wallflowers. I get a kick out of changing my wallflowers to match my holiday decor.
Over the years, several of my first plugs have stopped diffusing fragrance. I read online that you would replace them with new wallflower plugs free of charge. But found that almost too good to be true. Last weekend, I bundled up my faulty plugs and took them to my outlet Bath and Body Works. By golly, they allowed me trade in my old plugs for new ones of similar value. Now that is excellent product support. And customer service. I turned in a burned out plug today and received this little cutie in exchange.
Then with my coupon, I was entitled to select any product worth $12.50 or less. Scored another plug for free.
Thank you, Bath and Body Works for standing by your products. That is the business ethnic that our country was built on but seems to have lost sight of along the way.
If you were writing little letters, to whom would they be addressed? Is there a product or company you would like to thank or recognize? Please share in a comment below. And then, before you go…
