I skipped out on the awkward & awesomes last Thursday because of finals week, and after this weekend's Christmas Party with my office, I decided an a&a post would suit it nicely.

awkward
-Not one, but two, old men that asked Katie and I if we wanted them to take our picture together whenever I was snapping a few of just her.
-Our boss. Dancing. Kind of like a chicken.
-The number of times we were dragged out to the dance floor during some oldies songs that we had never heard.
-Katie's boyfriend eyeballing one of our co-workers coming to beg us to dance, to the point that he missed grabbing his drink and knocked it over. Water went everywhere, but we didn't get dragged to the dance floor for that one.
-Music that you can't or at least shouldn't dance to.

awesome
-The chicken piccata I had for dinner. It was delish.
-Oh and did I mention, dinner & dessert were free?
-Getting all dressed up. I even tried out one of the hair-do tutorials from The Small Things blog. She's the blonde haired girl that's all over Pinterest, and believe me, she's good with hair.
-Katie video recording some of our co-workers dance moves to help them remember themselves on Monday. Only we discovered we can't show them because the video includes our commentary.
-My metallic, glittery, gold nail polish. I'm in love with it now. I love me some holiday sparkle.

  1. Watching people dance is always a riot! Just like personalities, everyone has such a unique, um, groove? 
    Glad you had fun! :)
