Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.

HEY, IT'S OKAY.... be booking the Disney dining reservations this week. I'm hoping to get Be Our Guest and 50's Prime Time since those are where Tommy really wanted to eat. be relaxing at home for the 4th of July. My husband will be grilling some food. But the virus is spreading all over our area again, so it's best to be at home for the moment. be watching Hamilton with the kids on July 3rd on Disney +. We've never seen the show but LOVE the songs. currently be reading You Were There Too by Colleen Hoover. It's fantastic so far! have picked up these 4th of July cookies. They're delicious. And patriotic.

The Trials Of Getting A Disney World Park Reservation

We had plans to go to Walt Disney World in June to celebrate my son's graduation. Then the pandemic happened, Disney World closed, and we were like, "Um. Now what?"

Then it was announced that Disney World would open in mid-July and we were like, "Okay, we need to move our dates."

So we did. To August.

But we weren't done yet. It was announced that everyone had to make reservations for the Disney World parks, and oh, also no park hopping.

People were like, "What's the point of going then?" I asked my son what he wanted to do. I mean, this is HIS celebration trip. Some people get graduation parties: he wanted a trip to Disney World because he loves it there.

He said he wanted to go despite the changes. Some people are like, "But the pandemic and the the magic won't BE THERE!"

Okay, well, Disney has made masks a requirement and I know they'll help keep things safe. Also, you make your own magic.


It came time to make Disney Work park reservations on June 22nd. It started at 7 AM EST which mean 6 AM for me. I set my alarm, woke up, was confused, remembered what I needed to do, and logged on.

Only I got this pink castle:

I thought, "okay, cool, it's a few minutes before 6, maybe it'll click over to reservations."

It did not.

I got a bad gateway at one point.

Then I got the castle again.

Then I got this orbit waiting room.

Then I got a blue screen.

You see, reservations opened up for everyone who had a resort stay and tickets. So there was THOUSANDS of people trying to log in at once.

Finally, FINALLY, the orbit waiting room let me log in. But it said my password was incorrect and I was like:

I went BACK to the orbit waiting room. I was able to log in again.


We arrive to Disney World on a Monday and I was able to make a different park reservation for each day we were there.

The park reservations look like this in the My Disney Experience App.

That's another step down! We did it! Will it be different to not park hop? Yes. But it'll be okay. It's also odd that the parks aren't open super late. When Tommy and I went last year, we stayed until midnight. But. We'll still have a blast. Because it's Disney World!

Still. It was crazy getting those reservations.

Also, if you do call a Cast Member during all of this, BE KIND. It's not their fault they can't do certain things. For example, tickets for 2020 aren't on sale yet. Do not yell at them. They are only passing on information. Remember that they are human beings. 

We are looking forward to our trip and yes, we'll be safe.

Unboxing The June BoxyCharm Box

It's that time again! Time to unbox the BoxyCharm box. It's a monthly subscription box filled with beauty products. My teenager and I share it. She's more into makeup and I'm more into lotions and skin care items, though I do try some of the makeup.

Here's what was in the June Box:

This one is probably for me. It's QMS Medicosmetics Lip Line Corrector. I have lots of lip lines so I'm excited to try this out. It says the MSRP is $200 so I hope it works!

Natalie has been using the KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub because she hates when her skin gets all bumpy. Her skin does feel smoother. MSRP $18.

I tried out the Perfect Glow BB Cream SPF 30 and liked how it felt. It didn't feel weird or greasy. MSRP $35.

This Diamond Glow Power is a favorite of Natalie's. She's used it a few times. MSRP $27.

But Natalie ABSOLUTE favorite that made her gasp when she saw it was the Kylie Skin by Kylie Jenner. She loves Kylie products.

She was excited that she got a full size because she had been wanting it from Ulta Beauty but didn't want to spend $24.

She says it makes her face feel nice and clean, and it smells amazing! The bottle says it's packed with Vitamin C and E.

As you see, we got lots of fabulous things this month.

You can order your own BoxyCharm box here. There are different options. We're on the regular monthly BoxyCharm box which is $25 a month.

What is awesome is that you fill out a form before you get your first box on what you'd mostly like in it. For example, Natalie wanted mostly makeup, so I made sure to write that down. You also can pick what colors you prefer.

If you want your own box click here or use the code Amber-AREMLXCK at checkout! We'll get charms if you do this so we can shop at the store on the BoxyCharm site with them. You can cancel whenever you want.

What was your favorite item this month? Natalie says hers is Kylie Skin and mine would be the lip liner corrector.
