Celebrate The Holidays Without Guilt


Oh gosh, it seems every time I'm online I see another article about the holidays: 

Why You Should Only Give 2 Presents

Minimalism: Why The 4 Present Rule is The Way To Go

But then I spot:

Why I'm Going All Out This Year

Also, 

Check Out All The Elf On The Shelf Ideas 

OR

Why You Shouldn't Do Elf On The Shelf

Let's also throw in:

Why Santa Is Not Someone Your Kids Should Believe In 

and then I also see:

10 Ways To Show How Santa Is Coping With The Pandemic 


It's enough to make my head spin. 

I've said it before: don't ever let anyone make you feel guilty on how you want to celebrate.

We do far more than 4 gifts and don't feel bad. My kids did believe in Santa and no, they did not feel betrayed when they found out the truth as articles might want you to believe. 


If you do Elf On The Shelf, amazing. We did. (And here are some EASY ideas.) But don't feel like you NEED to buy one. Your kids will be okay without an elf in their life. I was. I'm sure you were as well.




Remember that the articles you read are opinions. If a family is comfortable with 2 gifts, fabulous, but if it's not something you do, fine. Continue to wrap those presents even if you are on number 10.

So relax. December always seems to pass quickly and there's no need to spend it feeling guilty. 


Enjoy the season!

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 have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was missing my husband, who was deployed, but all the delicious food helped. 


....to have finished the latest season of The Crown. You can't help but feel for Diana. No, she wasn't perfect, but holy crap, all she wanted was some kindness. 


.....to have done Black Friday shopping online! I found some deals, so I'm happy. 


....to hope porch pirates develop an itch they can never scratch. You always hear about them during teh holidays, and it just infuriates me. Go buy you own stuff!


.....to love looking at Christmas lights. We went to Sea World and all the lights were gorgeous.

The Mandalorian/Baby Yoda Blue Cookies

This is The Child from The Mandalorian on Disney+ for those who don't know:




He's called Baby Yoda by many people because he, well, looks like a baby Yoda. 

He's super cute. And actually, we found out his name during the last episode. Grogu. But he'll probably be still referred to as Baby Yoda. Because. Well. You know. 

Anyway, in one episode he wanted some blue cookies that the boy beside him was eating. That boy refused to share. (Shame!) He even had the nerve to tell Baby Yoda--pardon me--GROGU--no. Who can tell this face no?




So Bab--GROGU--used The Force and got the cookies.





After the episode, many people went nuts for the cookies because Baby--GROGU--ate them. I mean, precious! Adorable! There are rumblings from people if Disney will add the cookies to the Milk Stand where they sell the blue and green milk. 




But I found the cookies already. See?





Blueberry flavored macarons found at H-E-B. You can find them in most stores. 

Steve was happy.




Steve is what we named OUR child. (He's obviously not the same one in the show. He's a friend of Bab--GROGU.)

Steve shared with us and yup, the cookies were delish. 

Some people have talked about making their own blue cookies, but you know, I'm all for easy, so I say buy some blueberry macarons. 

And then there you have it, blue cookies like Grogu ate. You'll be a hit if you serve them for Mandalorian friends. 




So do you watch The Mandalorian and do you even know what I'm writing about?
