"hey, it's ok..."

has anyone ever read that section of glamour entitled, "hey, it's ok if..."
the write things like...
"her, it's ok if you're taller than your boyfriend...and you still wear heels"
{and then insert a picture of nicole kidman and keith urban}
i always get a kick out of this article.
however, i have had far too many of these moments this week. 
so i compiled my own list.

-it's ok if you drive 45 minutes just to get a churro from sam's club. seriously thought about this one. then guilt found me. so i didn't go. but am i planning a trip to idaho falls solely around the fact that i want a churro? yes, yes i am.
-it's ok to google how to make scrambled eggs. true story. i don't really like my eggs scrambled, but i was making breakfast for ben before he left for work and realized that i legitimately did not know hot to make scrambled eggs. this may have been a low for me.
-hey, it's ok to drink two 44oz diet cokes in one day. well, it's actually not ok. but i did it anyways. i've fallen off the bandwagon.
-it's ok if your husband almost catches you practicing your princess wave in the bathroom mirror. no comment.
-it's ok to spend a full hour at work printing coupons after watching TLC's extreme couponing. i have no shame.  
-it's ok to jump at the chance to walk to the park and lay on the grass just because it's the first time the sun has shown it's face. nevermind the fact that it's still only 55 degrees and windy.
-it's ok to wear virtually the same outfit two days in a row. my reasoning? i have different classes on tuesdays and wednesdays. therefore i won't see the same people.   

welp. as you can tell it's been a great week.
seriously though, it really has. 
but ben and i are so ready for the weekend. 
happy friday!

 p.s. can someone teach me how to sew so i can make THIS?

 perfect way to spruce up an old cardigan. or a new one.

andy & lo said...

Hahaha I especially love the outfit comment one!
I do that all the time.
It's just a little awkard when you see someone that you saw the day before but werent expecting to see on outfit round 2

Love all the "it's ok if" especially the coupon one, I am the same way, watch t.v, get inspired, then try to do the same thing! haha:)

Brissa said...

yep yep. i do the exact same thing with my outfits too. it's such an easy solution because that way i have to pick fewer outfits for the week and i save on laundry!

Natalie said...

Yes finally the sunshine has made an appearance! All the cashiers are going to hate that exteme couponing show LOL! Happy Friday!

AllyM said...

Jenna said...

This is hilarious!! I have made long trips based around minor things such as a Lush bath bomb, for example. And I have become quite obsessed with practicing my princess wave.
