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 finally finished the new Gilmore Girls. Yes, I actually did shout, "What?" at the end and freaked out the cat.


--To be taking Natalie to Sea World this weekend for a dinner with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Plus we'll be checking out all the lights.


--To really hope Farrah from Teen Mom adjusts her attitude. And yes, I'll be watching Teen Mom 2 when it comes back in January. I'm slightly embarrassed that the drama amuses me.


--To plan on watching Fuller House with my kids when it premieres this week!


--To be going to both of Natalie's Christmas concerts. She has one at 830 AM and then one at 630 PM. Yes, they're the same. But when your kid asks you to go to both and you can, you go to both. I'm flattered she likes me that much.


--To think it's nuts that people are waiting for hours in line in hopes of getting a Hatchimal or a NES Classic. I just have better things to do. We do have a Hatchimal already and I'd like a NES Classic, but my kids know they won't get everything on their list.


--To have been thrilled that my mom found a gingerbread house already put together. I can NEVER get the stupid thing to stay together. I even tried a glue gun one year. It always collapsed in a gingerbread heap. But now we were able to get a nice house. My Mom found it at World Market if you have the same issue.

  2. Aww that's sweet that you're going to both concerts!! Ooh, a gingerbread house. I think my mom could never be bothered with one when I was a kid so I'm totally fascinated by them..! Hehe And yeah, the ending to GG was like WHAAA?!?!?!?!?!

  3. Haha, omg, I used to make HUGE Gingerbread houses. It's a big process and the icing can be a bitch. But totally worth it in the end!

  7. My reaction exactly re: Gilmore Girls. Crazy!
    (Which is why I'm setting VERY LOW expectations for Fuller House this week!) I want to remember these shows in the light I viewed them years ago!

  10. I totally love reading your, "Hey, It's Okay," posts! I haven't watched Fuller House and the new Gilmore Girls but plan to soon. However, I did watch Farrah from teen mom and couldn't believe how disrespectful she is to everyone around her, especially her mom.

  11. Great read.The gingerbread house is the bane Of my Christmas season. I end up getting frustrated and eating it

    ReplyDelete
  12. OMG, Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 are my best guilty pleasure! I still can't believe that anyone can be as terribly rude as Farrah.

  13. A fan of your "its Ok" posts. Everytime, I read them, I say it aloud that to some of my on going stuff as well.

    ReplyDelete

  19. We can never get our gingerbread house to stay together either! One year, we tried putting a mug inside the house for the walls to lean against, the only thing was, we couldn't get it out until we ate it!

    ReplyDelete

  25. I still have to watch Gilmore Girls, plus the first season of Fuller House!
    We don't have World Market too close, but Trader Joe's had a $8 gingerbread house kit and it's sturdy! A Christmas miracle!

  26. Such a great post...I agree, I need put together gingerbread houses

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is by far the best idea yet when it comes to gingerbread houses. They are very hard to keep together.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sea World! I have always wanted to go! I hope you have a great time with your kids there! That gingerbread house looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've never seen a single episode of fuller house before but I imagine it would be nice to watch with the kids. I would love to make my own gingerbread house! If only I was skilled enough to bake it, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lovely to go to both concerts. I haven't watched the new GG yet - I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would love to experience decorating and pimping a gingerbread! Hehe if there would be a baking workshop here, I would like to participate.

    ReplyDelete
  32. These posts are my faves. I am going to be baking and watching the new gilmore girls this weekend.

  33. I'm not a mom so I have no idea what a hachimal is but I think that's crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like these and It's Ok To Give Yourself a break. I need to remember this.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My kids are all grown up and my grandchildren are still too young to know about Hachimal. For that, I am thankful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. it's okay that i don't really feel like going to all these holiday parties...lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Omg ginger bread houses!!!!! I suck at those things. They always sound like something fun to do but ughhh..... always turns into a disaster

    ReplyDelete
  38. Building ginger bread house looks so much fun! My son will love this.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have never seen the Gilmore Girls. It's so popular that I want to see what the fuss is about. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love this. Gilmore Girls is on my next list of shows to watch on Netflix. I can't wait to see it. I loved it back when they had it on t.v.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm excited for Fuller House too. :)
    I don't get the appeal of Hatchimals and am glad my kids haven't asked for one.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Your "Hey It's Okay" weekly posts are great! I don't do this, but it's a cool idea.

    ReplyDelete

  45. Haha. At least you scared the cat at the end. My mom thought I was having a a heart attack.

    I'm okay with eating ice-cream and cookies at 12am bc it makes me feel better about messed up situations. Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know, I have never tried to put a gingerbread house together. I had no idea it is so difficult, but I bet it can be a fun experience. But you are right, it's ok to get an already put together one too. It's all about what makes us happy :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love this idea!!! I'm ok with just being "ok" when it comes to juggling everyone's schedules...not everything goes smoothly but I try!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love everything about this post except that you're watching teen mom lolol that show is mental and it condones things we shouldn't be condoning as a society.

    a gingerbread house would be soooooo EPIC

    ReplyDelete
  49. People are ready to queue up for ages to get that one Christmas present. Have fun at the concerts

    ReplyDelete
