Hey, It's Okay...

  • to eat a bag of microwaved popcorn only to go back for seconds on a rainy Friday night (...and then declare that you are swearing it off forever...again)

  • to spend an entire day reading your Nook Book color (right now: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer)
  • to stand outside for a few minutes when it's drizzling to feel the rain hit your face
  • to wear the same jean shorts until they are too stretched out and you get "saggy butt" (or you spill something on them)
  • to drive all the way to Whole Foods just because you need some more xanthan gum
  • to visit the same Marshalls three days in a row, in hope that you missed something hiding in the racks the day before
  • to almost get "misty-eyed" when your blender mysteriously stops working
  •  to drink two protein packed smoothies a day, just because you want NEED some chocolatey-frostiness-in-a-cup
  • (recipe: 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1c. vanilla Almond Breeze, ~1 spoon of xanthan gum, 1 packet of stevia, 2c. ice, 1/4c. water AND BLEND :)
  • to realize that focusing on yourself doesn't make you selfish, it makes you smart
  • to dance in your car...even at stoplights
  • to read seventeen magazine, even if you're in your twenties :)

Can I get an amen? AMEN!
Have a great weekend!


  1. I love this! I totally feel ya on the saggy butt jeans haha and dancing in the car is one of my favorite past-times! :D

  2. You can totally get an Amen from me :)

  3. You can definitely get an amen. I dance in my car all the time, and going back for seconds or thirds is pretty much standard practice. There's no use in being so hard on ourselves... if it's fun and we enjoy it, then hey... it's okay ;)

  6. Emergency trips to whole foods for xanthan gum are absolutely acceptable!! Except when then the blender breaks.. also totally acceptable to get misty eyed. I don't know where I would be without my smoothies!!

  7. I loved all of these and could relate to more than a few:)
    I really want to get a Nook!

  8. I love this post! Protein smoothies are always so refreshing, I don't know what I would do if my blender broke, definitely some misty eyes though!

    So What If I Like Pretty Things

  12. I agree that all those things are okay...I'd even agree that they are necessary! I will never NOT dance in my car, strange looks for neighbor cars be damned!

  13. Oooh you get a HUGE amen to these babies! Haha and I dance in my car all the time. I'm happy to provide entertainment to the people stuck on the LIE {parking lot} :) xoxo
