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.





Hey, It's Okay....



....to might be the only one who doesn't care to watch the giraffe give birth online.



....to have ordered a new camera. My current one is over 10 years old. This one is the Canon T6. I like that I can film videos with it. And it's WiFi capable!



....to can't believe my son will be fifteen on Thursday. He'll always be my baby boy.



....to think it's funny that everyone in my family wants to go out for their birthday dinner because I'm a lousy cook.



....to have teared up while watching the latest episode of This Is Us but have also gone, "Okay, but what happened to Jack?" I am so impatient.



....to be bummed that Bill Paxton died. I enjoyed him in so many movies, plus he was fabulous in the show Big Love.



....to have skipped the Oscars because The Walking Dead was on.



....to have had a blast at Sea World with my daughter. This was in a store. She didn't get a toy, because she has so many already. But she loves to look at them all.

  1. Wow this is such a neat idea! We should be okay with the things that make us happy, shocked, or confused. Being okay with them helps us push through and find meaning to them.

  4. 15!? Oh Tommy - you're growing up too fast.
    Also, the giraffe didn't give birth yet??

  5. You are actually funny. Have you thought of doing stand up birthday parties or something like that. You definitely have talent.

  6. You are really funny. Why don't you think of doing some standup comedy at a local comedy club.

  7. I cannot get enough of This Is Us! Such an amazing show. That last one though, like all of the episode, whew, just pass the entire tissue box please. The stories are so beautiful! And I am just like you, dying and dreading to find out what happened to Jack!

  10. Hooray for new cameras! I recently got one too and I'm in love!
    I'm really loving This is Us, too, girl! I'm hooked.

    I'm glad to see you had a nice week. :)

  11. Bill Paxton was awesome, I didn't watch the Oscars, but I did watch the messed up ending.

  12. I want to know what happened to Jack too. I bet it will be in the season finale. And it will be so sad! The giraffe thing is funny. I glance at it when I see it but I haven't stared at it for too long - she usually is just standing in the corner!

  13. I am really sad about Bill Paxton too. I think that we own about twenty of his movies. He was such a great actor andBeth || www.TheStyleBouquet.com great guy from what I'm reading.

  14. I love this idea! Mine is... It's OK... that I've lived in Brazil for two years and still am not fluent in Portuguese!

  15. Hey, it's ok...
    To be using disposable dishes for an entire week because I don't feel like cooking.
    To take a nap when the kids go to school.
    Not care about the giraffe either.
    Mine will be 18 and 5 in October.
    Do I really have to shave my legs? I'm single and it's still cold!!!

    Love this!!

  16. Love this idea! So fun and a great way to realize that things really are ok.
    I have been looking at cameras for a while now, I want a new one. I dont necessarily need one but we know how that goes lol. We love SeaWorld!

  17. Still haven't jumped on the "This is Us" wagon yet, but that's because I'm obsessing over Game of Thrones! EEK! There are only so many hours in the day! ;)

  18. Congrats on the new camera, and happy birthday wishes to your son! Also, I skipped the awards too - but that's because I always do. And I'm okay with that.

  19. my daughter knows that we keep on moving house at least after every 3-6 years so she knows she cannot buy more toys, Like your daughter she likes going inside the toy store and just look and touch them or play a bit very cute

  21. This one is fun.I am tempted to write one too and share here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love your idea. It is fun to do a link up like this.

  23. I have been watching the giraffe for about 5 minutes a day. I have other things to do so I watch it right before bed.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've been enjoying your "It's Okay" series. It' so powerful to actually write out the things you're okay with.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I need to watch This is Us. I know it's a show I would like, but I am not sure if I am ready for such an emotional investment.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I too skipped the Oscars! Was funny people's reaction on the flub at the end.

  27. It's okay to stay in your pj's all day while I take care of blogging business. It's why I became a blogger in the first place. Richard B.

  28. I felt sorry for the giraffe that it didn't have privacy. I liked the fact that there's a new baby but poor thing needed privacy.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my gosh! The giraffe. I was just telling my boyfriend I'm really glad I didn't have a camera on me the entire time I was in labor with our kids. Birth is tough for every living thing so I don't particularly care for the cameras on the poor animal.

  30. I skipped the Oscars as well...Happy early Birthday to your son. My son just celebrated his 14th Birthday yesterday. Also, congratulations on your new camera. I love Canon's

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are so funny! You have good sense of humor. Nice Post. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Me too. I am more thrilled watching Walking Dead than the Oscars. Please send my greetings to your baby boy on his Big Day.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations on your new camera! But oops don't throw your old one yet.. you can make it as your souvenir and and gain inspiring post soon :)

  34. So sad about Bill Paxton. Loved him in Twister.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love that you missed the Oscars to see the walking dead. My daughter would never have let my daughter get away with it. Ah well.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can't believe that Bill Paxton died either! It's heartbreaking. I've never seen an episode of This Is Us, I hear it's amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Looking forward to hearing about your new camera.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was sad to hear of Bill Paxton passing too, absolutely love him! Thankfully, my kids have almost gone past the "toy stage" and don't actually buy stuff from the gift shops when we're out an about!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Even though Mai commented for me, above, I wanted to add my voice and say it's okay to get on with living our lives outside the expectations of others. Live!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Can I say that I have never seen the first episode of This is Us?! I have heard a lot of great things about it so I need to check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Gosh, our boys are growing up! I can't believe we will have an 11 and a 15 year old on Thursday!

    Seriously, what is the deal with giraffe? I haven't watched it either. I also didn't watch the Oscars, because hello, Walking Dead!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Super fun post dear!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love Sea World too. And I didn't watch the Oscars or the giraffe. ;)

  46. It's okay to be a lousy cook on someone's birthday. That's the perfect excuse to go out and have some good food and a good time.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I so love taking my daughter to places like seaworld! I'm sure you both had a blast there too. It's so nice that she didn't force you to buy anything.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love Sea World, my son really wanted to go again for second time.

    ReplyDelete
