So What! It's Ok! Maybe not today, but it will be.

Posted By: Leah

So What! Rarely a day goes by that I don't hear that yet another girl I know is pregnant. I think I know at least 15 girls 'with child' right now. Oh, and Yup, Gav is going to be a big brother.
It's OK! that  HELLL NO I AM NOT PREGNANT. Gav's dad's GF is. It's Ok! I am happy for them. Not at all jealous of her or any of the other prego girls I know. When I tell the news about Gav's dad aka my ex husband, so many people have asked if I feel jealous. UM no. Been there. Done that under the BEST possible circumstances (married, house, white picket fence). We all see how that turned out for me. No bueno.

So What! I am jealous of someone else though, I am jealous of Emily on the Bachelorette. I didn't think I would care who won, but I identify a lot with her. You know, the single mom thing, the charlotte thing, etc. Emily wanted a family and not to be lonely anymore. Now she isn't. Not that I sit around lonely, but I am happy for her and wish I had excitement in my life too. It's ok! that I am a sucker for all that sweet stuff Jef (1f) said to her throughout this season. He's a good guy, and I'm sure she'll be the next one getting knocked up.

So What! You know how everybody campaigns for a 'dislike' button on FB? I think there needs to be a 'save it for Twitter' button. Seriously! I've noticed more and more people posting their most random thoughts on FB. It's Ok! That FB has turned into a place for people's parents to reconnect. Most people under 40 yrs old are over the 'book and have moved on to IG, Twitter, Blogger or nothing at all.

So What! I JUST was away from Gav for the past week and he's gone from me again! I never realized how co-dependant I am on him. I think it'll be a while until we have both recovered from being apart for that long. It's Ok! I'm going to San Diego in a little over a month for a week. But Gav will be back in school, so I think he will be on a little more of a schedule and routine and it'll be easier on both of us. Crossin my fingers!

So What! I am so obsessed with those mail order subscription boxes like Birchbox and Julep. It's ok! I did a whole post on them HERE and am tempted to sign up for more. But am resisting.

So What! I have so much awesomeness in my life thanks to other bloggers. I mentioned a while back I won two giveaways recently. It's OK! I'm bragging on the items I ordered, so so excited:

SwimSpot Giveaway 
Next Zen Waters

Shabby Apple Giveaway

So What! Speaking of shopping, have you seen the new TOMS Desert Wedges? OMGGG. Must.Have.Now! I can imagine these with skinny jeans, dresses, tights, shorts, everything! I'm thinking black, but if they come out with a dark chocolate brown I might need those more! It's Ok! I legit am about to buy these. I think they will be perfect for work, going out, running errands, just everything. love.
So What! I do a lot of guest blogging. Like probably 1 or 2 a week. And I never ever remember to link them to my blog. It's Ok! that I will probably be asking for guest bloggers for when I'm in San Diego. ACTUALLY.... Would you like to guest post on Lovely Life of Leah? I want to open it up to EVERYONE Right now! I'll of course guest post for you back. AND maybe send you a little thank you from my trip. Just sayin' :)

So What! I'm keeping this super short. I'm super busy, you guys. It's Ok! I don't have to justify it. But you know, I like to anyway.

Link Up!

Its Ok Thursdays


  1. Good for you for being so cool about your ex! I lot of people probably wouldn't be but it will be so cool to see Gav as a big brother.

    Also I will totally hit you up for a guest post sometime in the future :)

  2. When are you going away again? Maybe we can work out a guest blog swap?

  3. I can't wait for my birchbox number to be up! This waiting thing sucks. I love your attitude, girl.

  4. Proud of you for not being jealous. I kinda would be, but I'm catty like that. And I totally am over FB. It's a good place to market my Etsy shop and post photos of the girls for family, but I'm kinda over the lameness that it has become.


  5. OMG! That red shabby apple dress is so cute!!! and those tom wedges?! Amazing, i love wedges and they look so comfy, i want a pair too!

  6. Don't resist the monthly subscription boxes! I am totally addicted!

  10. I'm over Facebook for anything other than sharing photos with family. I love birchbox!!!

  11. It's so awesome that you have such a positive outlook on your ex-husband's gf being pregnant. I think everyone should strive to be like that. Also, I'm totally loving that bathing suit.
