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!




Hey, It's Okay....



...To have put away all the Christmas decorations.


...To have seen Sing. It was pretty good.


...To like that the kids are back in school but hate waking up so early.


...To have been amazed by all the fireworks that were set off in my neighborhood at midnight on New Years. I was always on base before and it wasn't allowed.


...To love that I found some Christmas decorations for 70% off at Target.


...To have come up with a word of the year.


...To be ready for all my TV shows to return. I'm tired of this fall break nonsense. Come back. I'm bored.


...To have not known that these LOL dolls even existed until Natalie told me about them. We found some at Target. Basically you unwrap the giant ball and various things for the doll inside are there. Clothes. Shoes. Stickers. And the doll apparently either changes color, pees, or spits. I just...WTH? But Natalie already has two that she got with her Christmas money and is "totes hoping" for a rare one. I have a video of Natalie unwrapping one on my Facebook page if you're curious.

  1. I'm with you. What's up with the stupid Fall break stuff. It's annoying.

  5. It's OK that my Christmas decorations are still up and will likely BE up until the end of January. (Every year, I host an annual "Long Live Christmas" party in January because I'm always in denial that it's over)

  6. A doll that pees or spits?!? What is the deal with that?
    Happy new year!

  8. I made sure to go to the stores after Christmas as well to get the awesome discounts :)

  9. This is why I limit my Christmas decor to a door wreath. Very simple holiday recovery.

  11. I saw those LOL doll things at Target, but I"m pretty sure it was empty. There are many, many times when I am glad my kids aren't trendy enough to request this stuff!!

  12. I have never heard of LOL dolls except from your FB post/video!
    I'm so ready for shows to return, even though I'm still behind. I don't mind getting farther behind - just more to watch when our terrible weather hits!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Lol these are great! I am ready for the last season of bones! Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Such a brilliant post! what on earth is a LOL doll? I wonder if they will make it over here haha

  15. My husband put away all the decorations. I also found cheap M&M'S at Target with coupons.

  16. We got home from Florida last night and proceeded to put away all of our christmas decorations, it feels so good to have that done.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I hate when the shows are on break too it's such an inconvenience. My decorations for Christmas are still up but will mostly be coming down very soon. I found some great deals at Walgreens!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Another great post idea. Happy New Year.

    Um a LOL doll? I hadn't see that one!

  20. Guess if you decorate early then it makes sense to put away your decorations this early ... but I always kept my tree up until my birthday mid January. Also saw a tip somewhere about using decorations that have a wintery theme so you can enjoy them longer.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We've just packed away all our decorations today. Not been down to B&Ms for any discounted decorations this year. Got loads last year though.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So my question is why would a doll be spitting? I get the pee-pee part. But spitting? Strange indeed. LOL! No pun intended.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We still haven't seen Sing yet. I'm hearing it was pretty good though. I think my girls will like it. And I'm not familiar with the LOL dolls. I guess my daughter hasn't caught on yet. Haha. I too have a word for the year. :)

  25. 70% off on some Xmas decorations is a must see at Target. This would be my earliest Xmas shopping for this year.

    ReplyDelete
  26. After a week off of work, had to do the "wake up early" again this morning. Ugh but, it's okay because I wasn't the only one feeling the pain today LOL ~ my kids were too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I only watch one current show, but I am also sooo ready for it to return!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't wait for How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal to come back this month! I don't like this midseason break thing at all!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I had no idea about the dolls. I have purchase some for my nieces. I know they will love them. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's your first for the new year! I think the LOL dolls are funny. I think if my twins discover those, they're definitely going to ask for one!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am slowly putting away all the Christmas decorations away. I did not know those dolls existed, I think my daughter would love them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Same here we are slowly putting away the other Christmas decoration and actually changing it to a Chinese New Year theme, hehehe. I still get over with LOL dolls coz I havent seen it here selling in my country.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is a very encouraging post! Would have loved to take advantage of Christmas decor shopping at 70% off if we have it here. And the LOL dolls, I'm pretty sure I'd end up playing with it myself if we have it here available. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. That LOL doll makes me curious too! I am thinking of getting some for myself too haha! lol. I think it is a nice idea for exchange gift for my daughter's friends.

  35. I love that mini me is headed back to school but I hate having to wake up early

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's okay to have holiday hang over and sleep all day! =D And what an interesting doll you have there. I remember a toy I saw the shop last time, it is called a Puppy Surprise Stuffed Dog> it features a mommy dog with a surprise number of puppies in her litter. =D

  37. If there's anything I love more than putting up Christmas decorations, it's taking them down! Of course I think I'll be sweeping up pine needles for the rest of eternity.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I still need to take the decorations down. I did one room (mostly) yesterday, but the big room is still there taunting me!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It is totally okay to have put away all the Christmas stuff! My husband did this the day after Christmas :P

    ReplyDelete
  40. Is it okay that I haven't taken my decorations down yet?? Our whole family got hammered with the flu I feel so far behind.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, I am hoping the hubs will get to taking down the Christmas tree tomorrow. Is it okay that we haven't taken it down yet?

    ReplyDelete
  42. It will always be awesome to sing! (And dance if you want!) I really enjoy reading this segment! I think those dolls are cute though! ---Marceline Dementori

  50. lol Love this idea! I for one is not too happy about putting the tree away. I wish I could leave it up all year hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  51. I agree I love that the kids are back at school but I am really hating having to get up again each morning early.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm thinking it's totally okay that my kids don't know about these dolls (that I know of). I can live my whole life contentedly without dolls that pee and spit, lol.
