It's OK!

Today would have been my grandma's 98th birthday. She passed away in 2001. I just wanted to remember her before I started my It's OK post for the day. We love you grandma!

Some of my favorite memories of my grandma include watching old movies with her. When I was 10, she let me see The Omen (the 1970s version). She kept saying, "Don't let your daddy know we watched this movie." I miss her everyday!
  It's OK...

...that I haven't updated my blog in a week.

...that I was a little sad after Big Tex burned down last week at the State Fair. BUT, it was just a statue and although it's sad a little part of history is gone (he was 60 years old), they will rebuild him before the fair next year. And thankfully no real person was injured during the fire.
Remembering the good times with Big Tex.
...that I found this really funny! (you might have to click on the picture in order to read it)

...that this is my reaction when I see political talk on my Facebook feed and Twitter timeline. I'm so ready for the election to be over with. 

I know, real attractive, huh?
...that I'm a little bummed I'm not going to the Luke Bryan/Jason Aldean concert this weekend...
BUT, I AM excited that I'm going out of town for this little guy's 3rd birthday. I would pick seeing him over seeing a concert any day!

My favorite superhero, AKA, my great-nephew E. His birthday party is tomorrow.
...that I'm looking forward to the cold front that is coming through this weekend. I'm hoping my mom makes some of her chili while I'm home visiting.
If you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait. It will change.
...that I'm pretty sure my gift for my nephew E will make me Aunt of the Year. 
A talking Jake and the Neverland Pirates spyglass, Madagascar TRILOGY DVD, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates big boy underwear. Yes, I'm the aunt that gives underwear. But the toys and movie make up for it.
 ...that I take pictures of myself with my iPhone when I get bored.
How you doing?? ;)
 ...that I'm pretty sure I'm the only person EVER to get a near 2nd degree burn on her leg due to dropping her flat iron on it. Don't seriously, stop laughing. It's a long story and such a freak accident. I am the queen of getting odd injuries though. This really shouldn't surprise me.
My boo-boo. There are now pictures of my naked leg on the internet. I'm sure this will come back to haunt me one day.
...that I love these pictures of me and my best friend Mandy. She was in town last weekend with her family. We were trying to get a picture of us after we had lunch. The wind wouldn't cooperate, and after a while, Miss E got tired of posing with us! 
We have been friends for close to 24 years!
What's OK with you today??



  1. I actually think you look adorable making that face! :)

  2. I'm with you! Can the election be over? Do people actually think that constantly posting stuff about the person they are voting for will convince me that's who I should be voting for!! Oy Vey.

  3. I love the sequence of photos of you and Mandy and Little Miss Squirmy. :-) SO cute! So nice to have a long and true friendship. It's a blessing. Sorry about Big Tex. Were you two dating? ;-) (Sorry, just in a goofy mod.) Have a great evening!

  4. Newest follower here! I found you through the Thursday link up! Cute blog, I can’t wait to read more!

  5. Your grandma looks like such a sweetie!

    I am so with you- the election just needs to END! So over it. You are so cute, Rachel!
