I Call It A Win!

I would like to introduce you all to the soldier that caused all the hubbub.
Meet Fonz....

Does he look threatening to you?
I think not.

I am pleased to share that although the bar is covering their ass not admitting fault, they have extended an apology and has thanked Fonz for his service! They also invited us up there, but I told them that we would NOT be gracing them with our presence.
They didn't push the subject after that.
Apparently, we rattled them so much so that they had to get their lawyers involved.  I call it a win.

We couldn't have accomplished all this without all the support of our friends and family, so thank you to all that participated and/or supported us. All of your comments count ;)
Seriously though, you should have seen what Bethany sent to their corporate.
She burned them GOOD.
Just another reason that I love that girl ;)

Do you know what else I realized?
I never shared the pictures from when we had a double date snowboarding with Fonz and Christin!

So who's coming to visit for ski season next year?

Sometimes: Standing up for something or someone can be daunting.
Always: That high you get from doing what's right is worth it every time!

Sometimes: Killing someone with kindness is the best option.
Always: You catch more bees with honey.
In our case, we killed them, but then finished them off with kindness. 
Our form of reverse psychology.

Sometimes: My blood sugar gets out of whack when I get too excited.
Always: I'd rather be passionate than have stable sugar levels.

Sometimes: You lose followers when you post anything controversial.
Always: Sorry, I'm not sorry.
I'm standing up for something. What was the last thing you stood up for?
(And unfollowing me DOES NOT count as standing up for anything)

For those of you that continue to stick around my blog- You make my life.
I don't know where I would be without y'all.

Someone unfollowed you for doing something about it? That's crazy!!! If we see someone being wronged, we have to stand up for them!! That's how you an make a difference.

K said...

Good for you for standing up for what you believe in. If other people can't handle that then you don't want them around anyway. Glad everything worked out for your friend.

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

Can you believe that I've NEVER seen snow?!
Crazzzzzy...I really need to get on that!

Happy Tuesday!

Hilary said...

GREAT JOB! Way to put the heat on 'em! And thank you FONZ!

Sarah said...

I can totally see Bethany doing something like that!! I'm so glad that things worked out and you got a rise outta them. I read your fb posts and that's just ridiculous!! He's definitely lucky to have a friend like you :) You go girl!!

Alana Christine said...

I'm glad they finally apologized! They clearly messed with the wrong woman! haha. And don't tempt me to come ski!

Alice said...

I call it a win too! I'm glad they apologized it's the least they can do.

I can't believe someone unfollowed you for that. WOW!

Why to stand up for what's right!!

Zara said...

<3 FTW!!!
You rock my socks off! I love having friends like you! Wish there were more people who stood up for what they believed in and for their friends. The world would be a much better place!

CeCe @Frugalista Married said...

I call it a win too! Awesome. And do you know I've never been skiing? I get cold so darn easy...don't know if I could handle it.

Nicole said...

apparently people are afraid of controversy!

Jen said...

I think it is so awesome that you made them realize how innapropriate they are!! I will never go there and I have let all my friends in Denver know as well. A place like that does not deserve our money! I love snowboarding! If you are down we should go sometime this winter :)

Nicole said...

People stopped following you because you supported this guy? Frankly, I think that's UN-AMERICAN!

Have a good day :)

Megan said...

You lost followers for that?! Well oh well, right?! I'm still here! Proud of you for standing up for a hero! I haven't been skiing in SO SO long!

Thanks for linking up, love!

cynthia said...

I can't even fathom what would make people un-follow you about this situation. They hate people, maybe? :)

Lil Lambz said...

I love your blog layout and the Henry David Thoreau quote. Cute pictures today too! Thanks for linking up again today! I love following you. I am your newest follower. Check out my Sometimes & Always @ http://mostwhatmatters.blogspot.com.

Just caught up on your last post. So glad that you stood up for something you believed in and that they apologized!!

Beach House Living said...

Standing up for what you believe in is important. Bravo.

Lindsey @ The Hill House said...

That's funny that some would unfollow you over this. Oh well... Thank you for standing up for what you believe in and not backing down.

Amanda said...

Good. I'm glad you're not sorry for standing up for what you believe in! So happy that it worked out!
