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 really care that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing. It happens. Some people were so up in arms about it. They seem like nice people so I think they'll have a drama-free separation.

--To be flying to Texas on SUNDAY. I hate flying. But a new book helps.

--To have bought Sarah Pekkanen's new book Things You Won't Say to help distract me while I'm in the air. I'm so thankful my kids are older and can entertain themselves so I can read.

--To buy Natalie a new DVD for her DVD player, plus new books and small toys so I am able to read. (Otherwise she WOULD be like, "I'm bored! Now what?") (Tommy gets a new book too but he mainly stares out the window because he likes the different cloud shapes.)

--To have gone to my friend Jennifer's house for the 4th of July. She lives on a hill so we could see fireworks from nearby towns.

--To plan on taking the kids to Arbys so I can try the new brown sugar bacon they keep advertising. The commercials make me DROOL.

--To REALLY want to see Ted 2. But I have to wait for Tom to get home. So Ted and I will try to wait patiently.

I Finally Found A Swimsuit!

I needed a swimsuit. But I didn't know where I should get one. I saw several cute ones at my beloved Target, but none that would fit my body shape correctly.

Then I remembered Modcloth. I never purchased anything from the site, but I always admired their items. (No, this is not a sponsored review.)

Their stuff isn't exactly cheap. Some items are, but the swimsuit I wanted was $89. This is a lot of money to me. When I read magazines and see swimsuit prices, I want to shout, "Who would PAY that?" (One bikini set went like this in a magazine: $45 for bottoms, $60 for the top. I mean WTH? That much for a little material?")

However. My birthday was coming up, and Tom said I could get what I wanted. So I decided to get the swimsuit. It had fabulous reviews.

I went with this one:

Now, my conundrum was this: what size should I get? The page suggested to get a size up from what you normally wear. Well, what I normally wear is size 5/6/7. It depends on the brand. To be safe, I went with a size 10.

The swimsuit arrived about a week later and I thought, "Here we go." I am glad I went with a size 10, because I did have to tug at it a bit.

"I probably shouldn't have eaten all those McDonalds fries!" I said.

I got it up and I liked it. The only problem is I have small boobs. 34 A boobs, to be exact. The swimsuit sort of swims over them, but it's okay, who looks at my boobs anyway? I asked Tommy what he thought of my new swimsuit and he was like, "Hold on, I'm mining," because he was playing Minecraft on his PS4. He eventually looked over and went, "I guess it's okay?"

I'll take it.

I asked him to take a photo of me. He went, "But people might destroy my town." I gave him a Look and he went, "Okay. Fine. Real quick."

I recommend the swimsuit if you like the retro style. Yes my cellulite is visible behind me, but it is what it is. I am not a size 0, nor will I ever be a size 0. I like to eat. I cannot get excited about kale and green smoothies.

I'm ready for the pool this summer.

Are you comfortable in your swimsuit?

5 Men I Find More Appealing Than The Magic Mike XXL Guys

Magic Mike XXL is out in theaters. I did see Magic Mike and was probably the only person who was like, "Where's the plot?" (I wrote about my feelings on it here.) If I'm spending $7+ to see a movie, there better the hell be a plot.

And I just....look, male strippers have never excited me. Maybe this makes me a prude. Fine. But there are so many other men who intrigue me even more.

I also find it amusing when strippers gyrate and do their funny stripper moves.

I just want to shout, "Weeeee!" Or "penis" like I have Tourettes or something. Not press dollar bills into their spandex pants.

Here are men I find more appealing than the Magic Mike guys.

1. My husband.

I mean. Duh. Or any guy in the military. If you are risking your life for your country, it's much sexier than doing lap dances.

2. Nerds.

I love them. Love them. Love them. If one speaks science to me, it's a turn on. I've always loved the nerds.

3. John Krasinski.

He's awesome and he's a genuine nice guy. Nice guys don't finish last in my eyes. I never went through that bad boy phase.

4. Tyrion Lannister.

What? He's awesome. And he always pays his debts.

5. Gilbert Blythe.

I'm still bummed that Jonathan Crombie, who played Gilbert, passed away. He did such a great job portraying the character.

I'll probably go see Magic Mike XXL.

But I'll just be the one laughing into my popcorn and snocaps. That's all.
