Awkward and Awesome

Entire outfit: UO; Top: Via Lynzy; Purse: H&M; Scarf worn as a belt: BCBG
Well, I don't see if Syd is linking up today, so since I've been kinda sorta laxadaisically planning these in my head all week, here are my Awkward and Awesomes:

Awkward:
-Walking into the grocery store on a beautiful evening and a random guy screaming at the top of his lungs a four letter expletive that rhymes with "duck".  (I'll let you narrow it down.)  After my ears were entirely offended, I gave him an, "umm, whats your problem look."  He proceeded to give me an, "I will eat you then spit your head out," look, which, entirely scared me.  So, I went on my merrily way to shop for zucchini, lemons and happiness.
-A house with no front door.  Seriously, this is SO perplexing.
-Getting butt dialed.  Of said butt dialer peeing.  There was also a zipper and a flush involved.  This was left entirely on voice mail.  No, I will not use it for blackmail purposes.  Maybe.  Probably not.  Ok, I won't.  Your secret is safe with me.  (Que evil laugh - Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha.)       


Awesome:
-Making new friends.  And not just new girl friends, but new couple friends.  MARRIED couple friends.
-Yogurt dates with old friends.
-Kickboxing.  My legs have never been so sore.  Ohh and it hurts so good!!
-Blasting Avril Lavigne's song, "Smile" on repeat in my car with the windows rolled down.  It reminds me of when I was 17 and I blasted her entire first album "Let Go," to and from my first real job as a lifeguard/swim teacher all summer long.  I guess some things never change.
-This polka dot shirt I swapped with Lynzy from Sparkling Footsteps.  You can see her take on it here.
-Those iced animal cracker cookies.  Ohmigosh I crave those things.  I blame Husband.  
-And!  The fact that tomorrow is Friday.  Hello weekend!  Second week of June, I owned you.

axxaxaxax!
Don't waste your 'look' on someone who's top reach is to rhyme with duck in public.
Outfit is great.
You look happy.
Tomorrow is Friday.
And thats all that matters.

Hi! I just found your blog and LOVE your outfits. But... the reason we all like them so much is because you look PERFECT in every one of them! Could you make a post about your gym routine? My arms and abs need some work and you obviously know what you are doing, girl! Also a tutorial about how you do your eye makeup. It's awesome and natural. Hope you have a good weekend! --Nicole

Cute!

Agreed - couple friends are great. And peeing butt dial - that's both awkward and awesome. So funny.

My goodness, you have fantastic legs! I need to get me to a kick-boxing class and fast. That combo is brilliant. Love the red and navy.

Your legs make me want to kill myself.

Ok, so maybe that's a little dramatic, but they DO make me want to go work out really really hard at the gym so that I, too, may one day have legs like those.

I probably won't though (go work out). Oh well.

In other news, I have always been an Avril fan, myself, and you have inspired me to pull out my old CDs and listen while cleaning the house today. Yay!

Married couple friends are so hard to find!!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

Your makeup looks gorgeous in these pics!! Especially in the sunlight!!

Your stories crack me up!!

Rachael said...

That reminds me when Avril Lavigne was just getting started and suddenly all the girls were wearing ties around their necks. Did I? No. Did I think about it briefly? Maybe.
Getting butt dialed...that is interesting. And embarrassing. Not only for the person calling, but because you had to listen to it.
A house with no front door...guess they feel safe in THEIR neighborhood!
Kickboxing. That's an awesome way to exercise. Do you have to kick high though? That would be a problem for me.

Looking fab as usual! I must say I miss those moments when you can sing at the top of your lungs and not have a care about it.
