Hey, It's Okay

It's been awhile since I've done this, but I thought I'd bring it back.  I got this idea from a fellow blogger who in turn got it from Glamour magazine.  Basically, any Thursday that I feel like, I'm going to write a list of things to be okay about.  Feel free to do the same on your blog--any day of the week!

Hey, It's Okay...

To wish I could keep my Christmas tree up all year round.  All the glittery bulbs and white lights make my living room look so pretty. 

To let Evie run around the house in a long sleeve shirt, panties and nothing else.  Evie finally decided potty training was something she was interested in, and I figure the less clothes to get peed on the better. 

To hope Kansas doesn't get any snow this year.  I really hate snow.  We'll have a white Christmas since we're going home to Wisconsin for a few days over the holiday, and that's enough for me.  I think I prefer the ugly brownness I see outside my window to a Winter Wonderland. 

To want to hide my scale until after the new year.  I love baking, especially Christmas-y foods.  I want to make gingerbread men and cut-out cookies and fudge and almond bark and...oh, now I'm hungry. 

To want to be Martha Stewart (sans stock scandal and subsequent jail time) when I grow up.  I've recently acquired this creative bug that has nothing to do with writing.  I picked up embroidering again, and really want a sewing machine for Christmas so I can expand my textile horizons.  I may be a feminist, but I sorta feel like Donna Reed too.


  1. Donna Reed rocks, but I'd get annoyed with that act quick. I feel a man should cook more often and not leave his dirty socks around the house.

    And I'm not a fan of snow either when I have to drive in it.

  2. Michael has cooked dinner for the last four nights AND I threaten to throw his clothes away if I keep finding them on the floor. So I can play both roles pretty effectively :)
