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 watched the Lifetime movie version of Beaches and have been appalled. It was terrible. Awful. Watch the original from the 80s. The only plus of this one was Idina Menzel. Her voice is gorgeous.



...To be happy that Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder return this week! I'll have to record them because Tom thinks they are all "nonsense."



...To have found Girl Scouts and bought Thin Mints and the new S'mores cookies. So good! I'll be buying more too.



...To appreciate all the comments I received on my I'm A Butthole Wife (Sometimes.) I'm glad I'm not the only butthole out there. (Some didn't like that they were called a butthole if they nagged, and I apologize for that. It's tongue and cheek for me and not a word I take too seriously.)



...To have written a post over at The Military Mom and Wife about how you should FaceTime your deployed spouse here. Hint? Don't talk about inappropriate things! Someone could be listening in.



...To be sharing how to make EASY Unicorn Hot Chocolate on Thursday. I'm all about the easy and I know there have to be others out there who prefer to be in and out of the kitchen as fast as they can.

  1. Ok. I caught a little bit of Beaches. HORRIBLE. Just no, no, NO.
    Have you seen the chocolate covered strawberry Oreos yet? HEAVEN. I thought of you immediately. Lol.

    2. Does this mean there won't be a blog post about it? ;)

      And YES, I loved those Oreos.

      Delete
  2. I was wondering about Beaches!
    We got GS cookies but only Des likes the S'mores. I like the Tagalongs best, after all these years.
    And I can't believe how long Grey's Anatomy has been on holiday hiatus!

  3. I've caught up with Grey's and hurray! Glad it's starting up again although tbh, I'm a little over it as it a bit ridiculous now...!

  5. I have such a fangirling moment when i read Grey's anatomy and how to geet away with murder because i love those shows!!

  6. I definitely think its okay to make as many of those unicorn hot chocolates. They look great, its just a bit too hot for them here! (I live in Australia)

  7. I haven't watched How to Get Away with Murder, but seems interesting. Maybe I could learn something new tricks.

  8. I love this! And I have to go read your post about being a butthole wife. But I think we can all just be buttholes in general sometimes.

  9. I was immediately drawn to the words"Greys Anatomy"! How I loved it, but after McDreamy and MCSteamy are gone, I think it's going to take a lot for me to get back. Till then I'm gonna make me some hot chocolate cos you've given me a serious craving!

  10. What a disappointment, I love the original Beaches movie! I'll probably skip the remake if it was that awful. And I will definitely be watching How to Get Away with Murder when it comes back on, love it!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I loved the original beaches movie. I still cry when I watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I ordered some Thin Mints and Tagalongs but they haven't come in yet. I've heard the s'mores are really good so maybe I'll have to find another girl scout and get some!

    ReplyDelete
  13. They remade Beaches? Why remake a classic? It's hard to make something better when it was already great!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm super excited about that unicorn hot chocolate!! Also-- it's Girl Scout Cookie time already?!? Why do they plan their cookie season during diet-resolution time?? UGH!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I cannot wait until HTGAWM! That's like my only time of the week where I can sit back, relax & have some well-deserved me time.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love Girl Scout cookies! Time to buy some!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thin mints are everything! That indulgence in MORE than ok! Lol -- And yes, to Shonda's shows (specifically How to get away with murder) and it's time suck. I'm all for it though - SO GOOD lol !! I really enjoy these posts of yours!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh I am certainly happy that Greys is back! Got a bit tired of the repetitive nature of Scandal!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Girl Scout cookies are delicious, love them! will definitely buy more to eat while watching Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder, will not miss it for the world!

    ReplyDelete
  20. S'mores flavor? Omg. Yum!
    I can't wait for HTGAWM and while it doesn't compare to the original, I liked the remake. I think it was mostly because of Idina though.

  21. Hope you appreciated my comment on the Butthole Wife, where everyone is entitled to our own opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I haven't watched Beaches yet but will just to apparently agree with everyone else that it wasn't a good movie. I look forward to Girl Scout cookie time every year!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think it is definitely okay that you appreciated all the comments you got on your butthole wife post, I thought it was hilarious! I can't believe Lifetime even attempted to remake Beaches, what were they thinking?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I need to try the new S'mores cookies!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Really look forward to this segment every week. I am curious about that hot chocolate unicorn! My kids might want that!

  26. Love this idea for a blog post and linky! There are just so many things to be okay about, and it's great to focus on the positive like this.

    ReplyDelete
  27. We don't have girl scout cookies where I live and it would be nice to get to taste those! I've never seen an episode of HTGAWM but I've heard a lot of good things about it.

    ReplyDelete
