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 and I'll delete the link.





Hey, It's Okay....



....to be going to the rodeo this week with my Mom and kids! We're also seeing Jeff Dunham perform.



.....to have had a pretty relaxing President's Day weekend. On Saturday we went to the mall with my Mom and ate at the Cheesecake Factory. On Monday I took the kids to In-N-Out burger.



....to be going to Natalie's parent/teacher conference this week. Wish me luck! I never know how they'll go. Normally they start off with, "Natalie is a sweet student..BUT.." (She daydreams. A lot.)



....to have thought Fergie's performance of the National Anthem was overly dramatic. Just sing the song, Fergie.



.....to pig out at In-N-Out burger. I get my burger animal style!

Disney Princess Fun: A Jasmine Pley Box Review

I was sent a Disney Princess Pley Box in exchange for a review. No other compensation was exchanged. My opinions are my own. 



We're all about Disney in this house. My daughter has been a fan of Disney Princesses since she was a baby:



I mean, when we took her to Disney World she was around 15 months or so, she wanted to GO with Tigger:





I knew Natalie would absolutely love they Disney Princess Pley Boxes. You might recall that we got to review the Merida one, and she was excited over all the goodies inside that box.

When this one arrived, she was just as thrilled:



These are the coolest boxes. You can get 4-6 OFFICIAL Disney Princess goodies every two months.

This was was filled with neat items:


This was a book about Jasmine!



A book that you can paint! I love this because you just get a brush wet and put it against the color you want and wal-lah! Color!



Magic Art scratchers, which turn out so pretty!



A Jasmine Pop keychain!




A cool Jasmine shirt!



A necklace and earring set!

Bonus? The box turns into Sultan's palace.


Interested in getting your own box? You can get one for $24.99 here. Or you can get 6 boxes for $22.99 per box, or 3 boxes for $23.99 per box.


Even better, there's a President's Day Sale going on where you can buy one box and get 20% off. If you get two boxes, you get 25% off. If you get three boxes, you get 30% off. The discount is automatically applied. (Go here!)






So who is your favorite Disney Princess? 

Natalie once dressed up as Jasmine and likes that she has a tiger as a friend!

Why I Picked My Neighborhood To Live In

This post is sponsored by Nakturnal. My opinions are my own.



About two years ago we decided to look for a home to purchase. Before that, we had always lived on a military base and didn't have to worry about it. But we were comfortable with our finances and we're hoping the military allows my husband to retire in Texas, so we thought it was time for a home.

We looked at many houses, and finally we found the one we wanted in a certain neighborhood. We decided on it for many reasons.






1. The house was in a good school district. This is important to us. Obviously we want our kids in schools with great ratings. My son has autism so I'm always looking for a school who can give him the care he needs. It's so easy to to look at school ratings when searching for a home.





2. My house is pretty awesome. I love how the houses are different in the neighborhood. When we lived on base, they all looked the same, which could get rather boring. Plus, we could afford it! It reminded me of these homes for sale in Ohio, where we're actually going to be this summer. My husband's family lives there. This home in Dayton is beautiful and a fair price.




3. There's lots of kids in the neighborhood and it's safe. My daughter loves to be outside, so I'm glad there are people for her to play with.





4. The neighbors mostly look out for each other. I mean, sometimes you get petty arguments but for the most part, if someone needs help, people band together.



5. There's a pool! This is one of my daughter's favorite spots in the summer.





Why did you pick the neighborhood you live in?
