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 be glad the kids had a good first day of school. Natalie has a friend in each of her classes, so she's happy, and Tommy is taking AV again is excited about that.



....to have not made anything special for breakfast on their first day. I guess some people make pancakes and eggs and I'm just like, "How are you alert for that?" I am not a morning person.



....to HAVE made cookies for when they came home. I mean, they were the already made ones that you just shove in the oven, but still.



....to be going on a date with Tom on Friday. He's in the military and it's apparently and off day since it's Labor Day weekend. So we're headed to The Cheesecake Factory.



.....to have already bought some pumpkin stuff. I love it. I am ready for my first pumpkin spice frapp from Starbucks.



....to think it's hilarious that Natalie pasted a photo on top of her original photo on her Student ID because she didn't like how she looked. (Yup, that's really her in costume. Check out her Saw photos here.)

  6. This is so true. I love this. The first day of school is a big day and it's not gonna be perfect. I have learned to love the imperfections..ooh pumpkin Starbucks, you reminded me lol

  7. I think it's totally fine to NOT make anything elaborate for the first day back to school because you don't want them to expect pancakes and crap ALL the time, right?! Now you can cook em up a nice dinner, if you want, but in order for the kids to get back into the swing of things smoothly, you just gotta start out doing what will be done on the daily!

  13. That's wonderful your kids had a great first day of school! I'm not too happy about coming back to school as a teacher. :)

  14. Hehe, I love the pic she taped over her student ID! I haven't bought anything pumpkin yet, but I got some fall leaf garland stuff and some things for Halloween!

  15. I'm glad they had an awesome day back at school - sometimes it can be so hard. I absolutely love what Natalie has done to her ID haha!

  16. You know, we make a celebration out of everything, so how are kids supposed to know when something is truly special? I love that you didn't make a special breakfast just because it was the first day of school. Wait until the mood strikes you, make a great breakfast and say it is because THEY are the special ones.

  17. I get you on not being a morning person - part of the same club. Glad the kids seem to have had a good first day back!

  18. I'm not a pumpkin flavored anything girl but I hope you enjoy it. I don't understand why people get so mad about others who enjoy a drink

  19. One of the reasons why I like fall is because of pumpkin. I cannot say I want everything pumpkin spice but there's definitely things that I cannot wait to try.

  20. How wonderful that you set aside a special date night with your hubby! I too have a house full of new pumpkin things. It makes me feel just a little bit better about saying goodbye to the beautiful days of summer!

  21. My kids started school yesterday and it went great! Now that they are older I was happy to send them on their way. I need to prioritize date nights with my husband more often, we love date nights when we get them.

  22. The student ID is definitely my favourite part of this post!! Hilarious! I love how most of your points are related to food! All the power to you!!

  23. So happy to hear Natalie has been so friendly. I think she'll make more and more friends in the future. Not a fan of cooking huge breakfasts too.

  26. The Saw thing is adorable. I wish I could find my photo, I let my teen make me into Jigsaw last Halloween. so much fun! It's totally okay for it all, everything. I wish I could think of a way to link up, maybe I'll link up to this next week ;) It's so much fun to read!

  27. It's wonderful to hear how friendly your kids are. For me, I'm happy for fall including fall flavors like pumpkin spice.

  28. My daughters started school Monday and had a good day too. I'm always worried about the first day of school. I'm glad they both have been enjoying school so far. Always makes me happy to hear it.

  29. I love all things pumpkin! I don't feel like I need to wait until the official start of fall to enjoy it either. If it were available year round, I'd totally gobble it up year round.

  30. Looking at the photo of your darling, it shows how fun loving she can be. I love kids nowadays who value humor because it is one thing that makes life worth living.

  31. Her student id idea was pretty genius. I love when kids show their personality through little things like this.

  32. There is no way I would be able to get anyone in my home to eat a breakfast in the early morning. We will opt for a glass of milk or a peice of fruit. The Jigsaw ID photo badge is a neat idea.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh yes, I have not prepared breakfast on the first day but I will makes sure tomake on the 1st day of the 2nd week haha.

  34. It might be basic, but I can't wait for Pumpkin Spice season. I can't wait for my first Pumpkin Spice Chai.
