Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To not care that Brad and Angelina got married. It's hard for me to like their relationship when Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston when they fell in love.

--To really wish they'd send Frankie home in Big Brother. I know he wanted to donate his winnings to charity. His sister is rich enough to do that for him. Send him HOME.

--To have done nothing for Labor Day weekend. Tom had to work. I read a lot.

--To have ugly cried when watching Lone Survivor. I recommend the movie. But you will cry. And wonder why our soldiers aren't paid as much as ridiculous sport stars.

--To be happy that pumpkin spice drinks are back at Starbucks! I get a pumpkin spice cream drink since I don't like coffee. I ask for non-fat, no whipped cream to try and cut back on calories. But it's still pretty fatty. I don't care.

--To have a giveaway for a $15 gift card to Fandango here.

--To watch 19 Kids and Counting (it starts again tonight!) but roll my eyes a bit when Michelle refers to Jim Bob as "babysitting" their kids. ?! Also, the older kids should not have to care for the younger ones. But still, they seem like nice people.

--To have listed some of Natalie's clothes on eBay. You can check them out here. I'll eventually sell more.

--To be proud of Tom for going to the funeral of Kye, a fallen police dog. It was his day off and he didn't have to go, but he wanted to show his support since he used to be part of K9.

Airing My Dirty Laundry

What's Your Jam?

I've started walking the track on base.

It's my pants.

They're starting to get tight.

You see, I like the junk food. And my metabolism is rudely dying on me.

I won't give up my junk food. I just can't.

So I'll walk.

And while I walk, I'll listen to music.

Now, a lot of people listen to the music of today when they walk.

A lot of the music of today hurts my ears.

So I make up a playlist of a variety of songs.

Here's one of those playlists:

Life's A Happy Song from The Muppet Movie

Defying Gravity from Wicked

The Goodbye Song from the Smash soundtrack

And Then He Kissed me from The Crystals

Barbie Girl from Aqua

Daydream Believer from The Monkees

God Only Knows from The Beach Boys

I Heard Your Voice In A Dream from the Smash soundtrack

Hold On from Wilson Phillips

The Great Collapse from The Zolas

Greatest Hits from Lost from Michael Giacchino

Some Nights from Fun. <---hey look, that's semi current!

Does anyone else start to dance when they walk and listen to music?

Because I did.

For instance, Defying Gravity excites me so I found myself twirling and skipping. I don't think anyone saw. Maybe they did. If so, they might have assumed I was drunk.

I started bouncing around with Life's A Happy Song from The Muppet Music. Jason Segel is so much fun to walk with.

As I walked, I waved to the people who went by. After all, we were fellow exercisers! We decided to get up from the couch and do something. Hello! (I mostly got odd looks.) (Also, most people were running. I was just a walker.)

I plan on walking at least 5 times a week. I hope the walking helps because I really, really don't want to go to a gym.

Wish me luck!

Like Jennifer Aniston? Watch Life of Crime! **Giveaway $15 Fandango Gift Card**

**I was not compensated for this post**

I've always been a fan of Jennifer Aniston. I loved her on Friends. She's also been in many movies that I've enjoyed and has a new one out called Life of Crime.

Here's what it is about from the e-mail I received:

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

Sounds interesting! It comes out August 29th.
