Hey, It’s OK…#7 2

Hey, It’s OK…
…to jam out to “Some Dark Holler” with as much enthusiasm as I would to “Single Ladies.”
…to dress my daughter and myself like B.A. rock stars for her music class (I’m talking Musikgarten people). And no, not Halloween costume rock stars, real life rock stars, complete with dark brown nails, bell bottoms, vintage boots, feather earrings, skull and cross bone socks and a black tutu. AJH needed to work on her sharing skills so we got our “mojo on” and we she ROCKED it. She totally shared this week and I know it was totally thanks to the outfit.
…to really look forward to Wednesday night TV….Up All Night, Modern Family, Revenge…all SO good.
…to eat at McDonalds three times a week because I just know I am going to get Boardwalk. 
…to suddenly decide I am switching to complete Apple domination in my life…iPhones, iPads, iMacs, iWhatevers….are all in the works. I can’t take the PC world anymore. Must.go.back.to.Mac.
…to dress my daughter and I as Native Americans for Halloween as an excuse to put about a million feathers in our hair. 
…to go hear Ralph Stanley live. Twice. In three months. Check out his website and “wipe yo feets!”
…to forget half the things I meant to feel “okay” about for this post.

MaDee’s Holiday Market 3

Please come out and see me on Saturday for the 2nd Annual MaDee’s Holiday Market! I will have a booth called Make it Beautiful right next to the lovely Designs by Kara Kihm and I have made lots of darling necklaces, earrings, and hair accessories! I will also be installing feather hair extensions for and selling feather hair clips. I’d love your support on my first craft fair and The MaDee Project is an amazing cause! Get your Christmas shopping done while helping to raise money for pediatric cancer!!
Here are some of my latest creations:
Hope to see you on Saturday!

Hey, It’s OK…#6 + So, Is It OK…? #1 1

Hey, It’s OK….

…to choose french fries over those last few pounds. 

…to rub acne “spot” treatment all over my entire chin….or face.

…to not exactly know the rules on preposition placement in sentences.

…to try to be the bigger person…and fail. Miserably.

…to take notes during Oprah’s LifeClass.

While I am pretty confident the above things are “a-okay,” sometimes I am still left wondering if certain things really are okay…I mean, not everything can be okay, all the time, can it? If so, we’d live in a world with travesties such as camel toe running rampant.


Thus, welcome to my first segment of “So, Is It OK…? and let me know what you think about the current predicaments I am in…

So, Is It OK….?

…to let my child carry around a toothbrush all day? (Couldn’t she hurt herself?)

…to wear leggings with a shirt that doesn’t cover your bum? (I would say no, but I sure do see a lot of college girls in this get up: black leggings, short sweatshirts and UGGS. I think I should stage a protest).

…to use Sweet Tea/Diet Pepsi/any-form-of-caffeine to get through the day? (Is two Diet Pepsi’s a day kosher?)

…to count veggie straws and fruit snacks as AJH’s fruit and vegetable intake for the day? (I always try the real thing first, and sometimes it just doesn’t work!)

So, what do you think?
