Hey, It's OK...

My favorite feature in Glamour magazine is the "Hey It's OK..." page towards the front of every issue. This page is a list of silly phrases that Glamour editors are telling us it's ok to do! My favorite from the June issue? "Hey, It's OK...to throw a baby shower for Kate Middleton. So she won't be in attendance? That's fine." Today I decided to come up with my own "It's OK" list that applies to my life as of late.
...to eat dessert before dinner. Or, instead of dinner.

...to spend hours on end watching your favorite reality cooking show. (Mine is Chopped. Love it!)

...if you decide to lay out at the pool instead of go to the gym when you get off work early.

...to leave your clothes in the dryer for weeks after they're dry. Sometimes I just really don't feel like folding!

...to eat healthy during the week but splurge on the weekends. Everybody deserves to give in to their cravings once in a while!

...to DVR every show you ever watch so you never have to watch commercials.

...to take a nap in your car at lunch. Yeah...sometimes I am just that tired.

...to go to a movie/restaurant/concert/event solo when you're friends aren't interested. Don't miss out on something just because you have to do it alone!

Do you have any "It's OK's?" Share them in the comments below!

    1. Naps are great, but I normally wake up with a crick in my neck from sleeping in the car! Haha ;)

  5. Oh wow...I feel like all of these relate to me and make me feel so much better

    - Hours of Chopped! Yes Please!
    - Clothes in the dryer for days (weeks)...my husband and I BOTH hate folding
    - DVR EVERY show - or I just drive my husband crazy but watching three shows at once so I can keep switching between them to avoid the commercials
    - I work out like crazy during the week and eat super healthy...mostly so I can be a pig on the weekends
    - Need to get the courage up to go to concerts alone :)

    Thanks!

    1. Say Yes to the Dress is a great distraction! I'd say instead of Starbucks, I'd probably go to Chick-fil-A multiple times a day- for breakfast and dinner!
