It's OK Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK ...

... to switch reading gears from light chick lit to something really serious.
I just finished "There's Cake In My Future." (Look for the review next week.)
It's been on my Kindle for a long time, and I'm finally geting to it.
I have a feeling it's going to be really heavy, but I'm anxious to read it.


... to make healthier versions of sweet treats, like these Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes.
Really easy to make.
Very tasty.
Only 1.5 Weight Watchers points per cupcake.


... that I had a crush on quite a few of these 100 Forgotten Heartthrobs of the 80s-90s.
Tony Lucca, Mike Vitar, Christian Oliver, Richard Jackson, Robert Sutherland Telfer.
Some lasted longer than others, but I thoroughly enjoyed the eye candy.
And looking through those pictures, I definitely had (have?) a type.

... that I get a ton of recipes and ideas from Pinterest.
Monday, I made crock pot beer can chicken (pictured above). It was really good, and very easy.
The cupcakes came from Pinterest too.
I have a ton more pins I can't wait to try.


... that my cat puked all over my comforter on Tuesday evening.
I discovered the mess around 8 p.m. Sounds bad, right?
Well, I had already planned to stay up late to watch baseball anyway.
And there's nothing quite like sliding into freshly cleaned bedding.
Lemonade from lemons, folks.


... that this is pretty much my attitude about working out.

There are days it is so tempting to check out my DVR or working on blogging.
But I change my clothes and hit the road anyway.
I never ever regret it.


... to be excited that I have one (and maybe two) 5Ks coming up.
I'm doing a Color Run in October. And I'm eying another race in November.
I'm going to fall waaaaay short of my goal of five.
But at least I'm still doing a few, right?


... to be really touched by all the support I'm getting for my new novel.
Several friends have "liked" my author page.
People are tweeting me, telling me they'll buy it.
One of my favorite "Spring Awakening" guys even RTed me the other day.
So so excited to have my "baby" out in the world for people to enjoy.


What's OK with you this week?


  1. Hey there! Stopping by from the Thursday link up...
    My hubs always cracks on me for using recipes from pinterest instead of the 30 cookbooks collecting dustbunnies in the kitchen. :)
