It's okay.

Congratulations!  I'll send you an email so I can get your real, live address, Kristen :)

Its Ok Thursdays

It's okay that the only real food I've made lately involves tortillas and tex-mex flavors.  This is too easy, crockpot-friendly, and quite delicious: Tex-Mex Chicken.

It's okay that I created a DID IT! board on Pinterest to keep myself organized.  Everyone should do this.

It's okay that, this past week, I didn't do a Sunday post.  I'm not really sure why.  I suppose I didn't have anything meritorious* to talk about.  Pinterest "funnies" have been annoying me lately too...so I don't have a whole lot to share concerning humor.

It's okay that I'm confused by those who spend more time advertising their blogs than they do writing their blogs.

While we're on the topic, if you tweet that you need "x number" of followers to reach a certain milestone number, I'm not going to follow you.  I understand the excitement.  I'm THRILLED to have as many readers as I do.  But I don't want to guilt-tweet anyone.  That's just mean.  (Yeah, I said it. Guilt-tweeting.  It's mean.)

It's okay that after 2 months of "You HAVE to make this for me", my husband sewed a piece of felt onto a sweater to make me something stylish.

It's okay that I'm going to post my 52 Weeks of Kindness deed today.

Someone I know had surgery a few weeks ago.  I got her a mug and some fancy tea.  Nothing elaborate, not a grand gesture, but that's not what the 52 Weeks of Kindness is about.  It's about finding little things you can do to make others smile.

Along with that, I'm trying to support other bloggers by tweeting or recommending their posts that I really like.
If you are a fan of pop culture or celebrities, I totally recommend Day Old News.  DON gets me through my lunch breaks.  I find her site absolutely fascinating.

It's okay that I'm supporting the lovely Mrs. K by giving away some Target on her site.  Go check it out.  (And please, tell her how amazing she looks a month after having a baby. Like a real life Claire Danes.)

*Because everything I talk about is quite meritorious


  1. I love that you use words like "meritorious."

    Your sweater is cute and it's cute your husband sewed it for you.

    I completely agree about the guilt-tweeting...can't stand it. Can't stand it one bit.

    And we've been basically living off of any food that contains sweet potatoes, so don't feel bad about your Tex-Mex foods.

    So glad it's almost Friday. SO glad...this week sucked. It sucked bad.

  2. Love the sweater. Very cute. You should visit Texas...the land of Tex Mex. I think it will make your taste buds happy.

  3. I've been making a similar crock pot taco recipe weekly this year because it's so easy and delicious!

  4. I agree about people promoting their blogs. I just want to tell them to write who cares how many followers you have.

  5. The thing that confuses me most about guilt tweeting is that is must be ineffective ! Does anyone really ever think- "Oh, they just need ten more followers!? That could be me!!" LOL

    Thanks for the Claire Danes comment. I think I'll let it go to my head today ;)

  6. I don't guilt tweet (I don't *think* I do) but for me I wanted to reach 100 for my first giveaway. It's something I wasn't rushing for. When I hit it, I announced it.

    I like the idea of a DONE pinterest board. I'll have to check that out.

  7. I love your new term. Guilt tweeting is an awesome way to describe it! I actually stopped following a blog because I felt that all she did was had blog posts introducing her sponsors. I'm all for blogs having sponsors, and I don't mind guest posts, or a post or two introducing many of your sponsors at once. BUT if I follow someone's blog, I want to read what that person has to say. I don't want to read a post every day that someone else wrote. *End rant*

    And I have to tell you again that I love that sweater! :)

  8. Love love love the sweater!!!

    I have a "Foods I Plan To Make" board for cooking and a "Read Me" board for books that I have read.

    And I am a pop culture fanatic. Thanks for the link :)

  9. Yay!! Thanks!! By the way, I Am totally doing a "did this" board on Pinterest!!

  10. i need to participate in that 52 weeks of kindness!

  11. I could eat mexican or tex-mex every single day and be happy. I love that sweater!

  12. I love Tex Mex. It is my favorite. I would eat it every day.
    Guilt tweeting is a the funniest made up term I have heard. You should try to get it trending.
    I also think your tea/mug gift is perfect. I love it when people think of me when I have been out or what not. It's always the little things that are the best.

  13. Love the "done it" board idea. Brilliant.


Comments make my day!
