awkward & awesome

Bear and my shoes

a w k w a r d
- Driving all over town getting ready for a wedding and making more wrong turns than one person should make in a day.
- Being early to work because I missed the turn to stop and get breakfast, then having someone comment on how they appreciate that I like to be early to things because it's rare for my generation. Uh, well I was actually early on accident.
- Public restrooms that don't play music.
- Wearing a skirt that doesn't allow you to really open your legs enough to slide in your car so you end up with some kind of hop-and-fall maneuver.
- Almost getting taken out by someone's cart at the grocery store.
- Watching a hair tutorial at work with a cluster of girls only to have the boss man walk by and see all of us scatter. Nothing conspicuous going on here, sir.
- Returning things to stores and the fact that it makes me want to be so apologetic, like "I'm so sorry I didn't want to keep your item, you really do have such a lovely store though, it's not the dress, it's me..." etc. (Okay, I don't really voice the apologies out loud, but I totally think them).

a w e s o m e
- Having a day where you are super productive and get so many things crossed off your to do list.
- Making bloggy friends, you gals brighten my day.
- Snapping photos of Bear and the long legs that just seem to grow overnight.
- Those weeks when hubby is in an ice cream mood. That's the best.
- Watching a show about time management on the history channel in which I learned that people that get on the Internet at work are more productive and that some offices do things like have a nerf war in the middle of the day because it gives people a break and increases their productivity afterwards. Unfortunately the place I work is straight out of 1980 where no such things should even be thought of.
- House hunting with the mister.
- Floral clothing in the summer. It just makes me happy.
- Dreaming up an exotic vacation for me the hubs next summer. It will be epic.


  1. Such a cute dog!!! Also, it's normal for restrooms to play music where you live? I think that would freak people out where I am. Funny how things change like that :) I also really enjoy that nerf war idea... If only hey? :P Rhi xx

  2. Uh oh, that is not good getting busted by the boss! That happened once when I was an intern and all of us got screamed at. (My boss was slightly psychotic though). And I think my hubby is ALWAYS in a ice cream mood...if I let him, he'd have it for dinner at least one night a week :)

  3. hahaha i like the skirt one and getting into the car, classic. i normally just hike my skirt up at that point, does that make me a skank?
    also i love your pup!


  4. Doggy is cute :)

    I'm the same way when returning clothes...I don't want them to ask why I'm returning it. I'm using the 'it's not you, it's me' thing next time though!

  5. can't wait to hear about the epic vaca plans!!! :D and love the skirt awkwardness but i usually just hike it up LOL and then still fall haha

  6. LOVE these!! and yay for bloggy friends!
