. . . for Lauren and Lauren: My first "It's OK" post

February 8, 2012

My first "It's OK" post

So I've seen and read many "It's Okay" posts and have yet to write one.  
This week I've had more then enough circumstances that belong in a post like this. 
So here it goes . . .


Shirt: American Eagle (from high school)    Skirt:  Target    Boots:  Kohls  

It's OK that I ran outside, took the fastest picture ever and ran back inside because my 8 year old neighbors were playing outside and I was embarrassed about taking a picture of myself. 

It's OK that by running to set up my camera I probably embarrassed myself even more.

It's OK that I lost my deodorant last week so for the last six days I've been using Chris'.

It's OK that I therefore may have been smelling like Old Spice. 

It's OK that I wore a sweater last week and didn't realize that there was a hole in the armpit until I was writing on the board at the end of the day.

It's OK that it took me six tries before giving up on trying to say the word characteristics to my third graders today.  

It's OK that I ate over half a pan of these amazing snicker's bars this week. 


It's OK that I started a workout on Nike Plus, stopped when Chris called me, and then "finished" the last five minutes of it listening to the workout while I read my email.  

How was that for my first It's OK post?

this is so funny! i haven't heard of the "it's okay" posts yet, but i like them. everyone has stuff like this in their lives, it's just that we work so hard to hide it. but it's ok!

also, i've totally walked around smelling like old spice. it was weird at first, but i got used to it.

Love it! Especially the part about using Chris' deodorant - I kind of love that Old Spice smell - and may or may not have done the same thing :) Cute stripes!

Cute striped shirt! I always try to make sure there's no neighbors lurking if I'm taking pics outside my apartment. I know they'll think I'm the biggest weirdo!
