Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude.





Hey, It's Okay....



....to still be on vacation. But I'm coming home tomorrow!



....to need to go school supply shopping when I return. My kids go back to school August 28th.



....to hope all the flights go well. I do not like to fly.



....to have brought 3 books with me on vacation. I read on the plane. In the car. In the hotel. We'll see if I finish them or not!



....to hope my daughter's hamster is doing okay. We dropped him off with my parents. He's probably like, "The hell am I now?"

....to be on vacation! I'm currently in Gettysburg. We leave soon for Williamsburg and then will be in North Carolina. You can follow my adventures on Instagram and Facebook.



....to hope the kids (and my husband) don't cause me to lose my mind while on vacation. I cannot stand when people whine about things. We're on vacation. Deal with it.



....to be going on a ghost tour while on Gettysburg. My kids are super excited about that one.



...to be bummed that Anna Farris and Chris Pratt broke up. They were such a sweet couple.



....to also be eating at a place that is supposed to be haunted in Gettysburg since it's an old building.



....to have tried the new Fried Green Tomato flavor from Lay's. I was impressed. I need to try the Taco and Everything Bagel flavor now. The winner gets to stay!

Brutally Honest Things To Pack When Traveling With Kids

We're starting our vacation Tuesday. At the crack of dawn. I'm serious. Our flight leaves at 820 so we're waking up at 5. As in 5 AM.

I am not a morning person so it's going to be painful. But I can try to sleep on the airplane and remind myself that we're on VACATION.

We're headed to Gettysburg. Then Williamsburg. And finally North Carolina to visit my husband's mom and sister. Part of the trip will be by plane. But the other part is by vehicle. And we have the kids with us, so that can cause me to be like..





I have ideas on what to bring when traveling with children and yes, alcohol is involved.





1. Headphones. For them. Having to listen to their ridiculous games on the iPod or YouTube videos can be irritating. Also, pick up a pair for you. The noise canceling ones are fabulous.


2. Earplugs. If headphones aren't for you, get some of these.


3. Booze. You know. If the headphones or earplugs didn't help. But never ever while driving. Obviously.


4. Chocolate. If you aren't into booze. Honestly, I don't drink much. I prefer the sweets. I'll eat my feelings, no problem.


5. A nanny. Pawn the children off on her. Or him. I'm not opposed to male nannies. Granted, I'm not Mariah Carey so I don't have the cash for a nanny. Sadly. But if I did, I'd be all, "Kids, you're going with Mary Poppins, see ya when we arrive at our destination!"


6. Entertainment. For them. For you. I usually buy new toys from the dollar spot at Target and hand those over to the kids. They also have Nintendo 3DSes so I get them a new game. This generally keeps them quiet. Entertainment for me means trashy magazines and books. I tell the kids not to bug me unless it's an emergency.






I'm sure everything will go smoothly. My kids are older, which means they're slightly more patient when we travel. They have their moments of course, but you know, that's when I can bring out the earplugs...
