It’s Okay #3

Nugget On A Budget

It’s okay…

…that sometimes all I want to do is knit.

…that I like to knit while watching TV, so I started watching Orange Is The New Black. And I also started watching Downton Abbey Season 4.

…that I’m not sure whether that’s actually legal.

…that I go to Starbucks whenever possible.

…to be excited that I am up to 705 followers on twitter.

…that I’m never quite ready to pick up Simon from preschool.

…that Simon hasn’t pooped in the potty yet. On the other hand he is wearing underwear and staying dry and that is amazing! (edit! He did it! He pooped in the potty yesterday afternoon!)

…to really like the song “When I’m Gone (Cups)” by Anna Kendrick.

…to be upset that I am missing the last piece of my 3000 piece puzzle but want to count it as finished anyway. And I’m counting this as blogging about it.

…to have no idea how to start cutting back on the amount of toys in our house.

…to have not cleaned out under the bathroom sink for much too long – it makes it that much better to finally do it!

…that I decided to knit this scarf (not in the same colors):

…that today I’m introducing you to one of the co-hosts of the It’s Okay link up, Leslie!

Leslie shares my love for Disney and currently writes a series called Mickey Mondays. She has an adorable little girl named Violet and a cat named Ruby, which I think is very funny! She co-hosts a weekly link party called Violet Imperfection (with Lanaya). She is also working on a series about putting herself first!

This month I asked my sponsors 3 travel related questions. Leslie says:

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I have two places that I would love to travel to someday. England because my great grandmother is from there and I just have always wanted to go. Australia because it just has always fascinated me and I want to hug a koala.

Where have you previously traveled that you loved and would return to? If you read my blog I am sure you can answer this question....Walt Disney World.

Do you have any upcoming travel plans? We have our first family trip planned to Walt Disney World in May. I can't wait to see Violet explore and enjoy Disney.

Go visit Leslie and tell her I sent you!

Yay Simon!!!! The missing puzzle piece drives me nuts too!!

Natalie Hinkley said...

How are you liking Orange is the New Black? I have been meaning to start it, I hear it is really good!

Dara said...

yay Simon! he pooped twice on the potty and once more in his pants. but maybe he'll catch on soon! the scarf so far looks good, can't wait to share it!

Dara said...

I hate that I don't know if it's lost somewhere in my basement or if it wasn't there to begin with!

Dara said...

just watched ep 1 but so far so good!

Sara said...

I have been on such a Starbucks kick. It's terrible for my wallet and my diet since I get the most fattening thing on the menu.

Dara said...

yup I'm with you, lol!

Tiffany Mitchell said...

yay for pooping on the potty! And for Orange is the New Black! lol I love that show!

Rachel said...

I would so watch Downton Abbey if I could figure out where it's possible to watch it! :P

Breenah said...

If you figure out a way to easily go through toys, let me know! Love that scarf!

Dara said...

I hope to watch more of it today!

Dara said...

I will. I have a long way to go though!

Leslie said...

Me and my color names lol. Thank you so much for featuring me today!!

That is heartbreaking about the puzzle piece that's missing. What a bummer!!

Every Christmas season we go through the toys. First, we weed through and find the junk (or toys that are missing pieces or broken (done normally without the kids)), then we divide in two (one pile to keep and one to donate). Giving to charity and kids that don't have toys tend to be a persuasive argument to get them involved. You can be surprised how much they are willing to give!

How sucky to lose one piece of the puzzle!

Dara said...

I keep wondering if it was missing in the first place or if it got lost in my basement, argh!

Dara said...

I always look at toys and think well, they play with this sometimes. but I think I need to get past that and just clear out a ton!

Alex said...

I want to try to start Orange is the New Black. I only hear great things about it! I need to finish up Breaking Bad though... LOL
I'm horrible with getting rid of toys. We have a mountain of them waiting for us when we unpack. They're going to drive me crazy!!

Dara said...

I need to start breaking bad too! I can't decide if I should watch one series at a time or a different show each day or what.

Tamara Bowman said...

Starbucks used to know me by name! I feel sad that I don't go as much as I used to. When it gets to be red cup season, I'm all over that.

Becky Bryson said...

I love "when I'm gone" and Starbucks as well! Definitely okay. :)

Dara said...

and now it's in my head again. lol!

Dara said...

what do you order in your red cup?

Tamara Bowman said...

I really only like the caramel brulee one! The gingerbread one tastes like soap to me. The eggnog one I've never tried. Oh, and I like the peppermint mocha but I make mine a peppermint white mocha. Oh, yum.

Ronni said...

That scarf. Oh my goodness. Have you ever considered taking commissions?

Dara said...

I would, but it takes awhile to knit so much so that it wouldn't really be worth it. I do sometimes sell hats for like $20.

Kera @ Nugget On A Budget said...

I totally stop by Dunkin Donuts almost every time I'm out lol ~ so it's definitely okay {I think we discussed our need for this before}. And yay for Simon pooping in the potty! I'm thinking of starting Sofia either this winter or in the spring...she's ready, I'm not :(


Gah, I need to get back to you for my sponsor spotlight! Sorry!

Dara said...

no problem!
