. . . for Lauren and Lauren: It's OK . . . .

March 7, 2012

It's OK . . . .


It's OK that half of the time when I decide what to wear I look at pinterest.  Case in point . . 
so simple
Too bad I can't replicate the sunshine and flowers. 

It's OK that I ate half a bag of chocolate goldfish at one time. 
Then another large amount at breakfast the next day. 
It can't count as dessert, they're goldfish. 

It's OK that every time I wear something I make to work, (like here or here) I bring a needle, thread and safety pins in my purse just in case I have a wardrobe malfunction.  
So far so good.  

It's OK that I found this in a salad that I made and brought for lunch. 
What is this? a bamboo stick?
This is actually not OK.  

It's OK that my trunk has been open while driving at least three times in the last two weeks.  
I must be pressing the trunk button at some point without knowing it.  

It's OK that one of my student's cell phone rang during our state testing today. 
What grade do I teach? Third. 
Who would be calling an eight year old at 11:00 on a Wednesday? 

Happy Thursday! 

SOOOO excited I get to see my sister, niece and nephew tomorrow night!

Linking up with It's OK Thursday

Pin It!


  1. I've never tried the chocolate goldfish. They sound so good though! 8 year olds having cell phones? What is the world coming to? haha! :)

  2. I have had a bamboo type stick in a salad that I made at home too!! I was totally creeped out. I don't think lettuce of any kind grows with bamboo - especially if it's grown in ND.

    I love seeing what you're wearing. You are too cute!

  3. there are chocolate goldfish??? what??

  4. You are absolutely correct: all of those things are OK! Except the third grader with important phone calls at 11am. What? Ha! Have a good week! 2 more days!

  5. I've only had one cell phone disruption this year, but the teacher next door to me collects her 4th graders' cell phones each morning and always has a pile on her desk!

  6. ahhh! a third grader has a cell phone?! what are the parents thinking? i love love love chocolate goldfish :) they are amazing. i cannot buy them very often because i typically eat the bag in 1-2 sittings :)

  7. I love your outfit, I keep trying to pull off the belted look but feel like I'm not getting it quite right. And I can completely relate to popping my trunk open, my mind is everywhere all of the time and I sometimes just don't think!

  8. Gosh a third grader with a phone??? I wish they had them in my time but I doubt my parents wouldve let me have one let alone take it to school!!!!
    I love the outfit, I have a cardigan thats a bit big and never knew what to do with it but now I do :) Thanks.

    Have a good day.

  9. I want your wardrobe! Loving the knotted belt. Have fun with your fam! :)

  10. I've been looking at Pinterest a whole bunch lately before I get dressed to go out! I'm beginning to think that I can't dress myself without it :)

  11. what a great idea! i should get more outfit inspirations from pinterest! i mean.. i do have a fashion board after all!

  12. You are a riot! (do only really old people use that phrase? Does this mean I'm really old?) anyway, you made me literally laugh out loud several times reading this. Can't wait to see you!

  13. So funny, well...not the bamboo stick part. I feel for teachers these days, there are already enough distractions, but a third grader with cell phone calls at 11:00 am? Really???

  14. This made me laugh :) Loving the pinterest inspired outfit - and chocolate gold fish? That just made my day so much better - how did I not know about these??

    The Other Side of Gray

  15. Chocolate goldfish? How did I not know about this?! Definitely looking for them the next time I'm at the grocery store :) Pinterest is the best when you can't think of an outfit! And that's ridiculous that a 3rd grader has a cell phone.

  16. always win with this combination!! simple and chic!


  17. An eight year old with a cell phone!? Oh my goodness. Wow, ha! Love your outfit!

  18. greaT! ;)

    "comment made by boy"

  19. It's amazing that a third grader even has a phone! I didn't get my firs phone till I was well into my twenties!Of course I'm old now! lol lol

  20. Mmm I would love to try those chocolate goldfish! And I agree, it IS okay to eat half a box yourself! :) Why not?


  21. Wow, technology encroaching third grade classroom! I hope it was just a random incident! Kids need to use cell phones only in emergency!

  24. 1) We're doing state testing this week also and had a few cell phone "hiccups"! Our teachers were so upset...
