Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Shirt: Forever21; Shorts: FreePeople; Bag and Earrings: Francesca's Collections; Shoes: Thrifted; Fedora: H&M
Awkward:
-Shopping in the produce department at the grocery store, picking out some nice vegetables, putting them in a cart, then pushing said cart towards Husband.  An old man behind me says, "Hello!"  I turn around in his direction and he is waving both arms at me. He says "Hello!" again. I smile back and cheerfully say, "Hi!"  Then he points to the cart that I am pushing and says, "That's mine!"  I replied, "Umm yeah, I was uhhh....just checking to see if the wheels were working. Yep! You've got a good cart here!" Husband was laughing.  And I hate embarrassing myself in front of Husband.  I like him to think I am cool at all moments.

-Speaking of old men.  I took my dog Tayla for a walk at the park on Saturday morning.  We were walking on our merry way and are suddenly approached.  By an 80 year old Korean War Vet named Vern who told me his life story.  Now, I'm all for talking to people who want someone to talk to.  But then he started hitting on me.  Some of his pickup lines were, "You have a hot body," and, "If you ever become a massage therapist, look me up."  Whaaaat?

-Getting poop in the bed.  Ok whoa.  Let's back up.  Rewind to 2:40 AM this morning.  Our new puppy was whimpering in his kennel so I took him outside to go potty.  Three quarters asleep, barefoot, in my pajamas, standing in the wet grass, I patiently waited for Puppy to do his business.  He successfully goes, so I pick him up, walk into our bedroom, and place Puppy back into his kennel.  As I was doing so, I noticed that it smelled like poop (sorry if I am totally grossing you out).  So, I stuck my hand inside his kennel and felt around to make sure he hadn't gone, and fortunately he hadn't.  So, I shrugged off the smell and continued to make my way back to bed.  As soon as I picked my feet off of the ground and slid them between my gorgeous 500 thread count sheets, ready to get my sleep back on, I realized, "Ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh...I STEPPED IN POOP!!!!"  I'm not talking like, oh, you got a little bit of poop on you.  No, I'm talking holy cow, you got a LOT of poop on you.  Like hot off the press, tracked through my carpet and in my bed.  I had to tell Hubby what I had just done.  You can refer back to the last two sentences of the first paragraph to know how I was feeling at that very moment.

Awesome!:
-Getting our new Puppy on Tuesday!   I can't WAIT for you to meet him tomorrow.

-My BIG brother is turning 30 today!  Happy Birthday Bro!!!  Tonight.  We celebrate!!!

-Finally being completely settled in our new house.  Walls are painted, rooms are filled with life and there's no place I'd rather be.

I have had many a strange poop incident with puppies. You will likely have more to come. ; ) It's worth it, though, because they give you those big puppy eyes and you melt.

Its all Greek to me said...

as said before.
This is not awkward, this is hilarious!!!!!
Thanks for a great laugh.

Hahaha Poop stories make me laugh. Hope your sheets survived. Yay for the new puppy.

B didn't want a new puppy, so we got a little kitty over the weekend instead. It's definitely been a different around our house now. My poor baby, Astro, has been sleeping outside. :( Sorry for rambling on about my life. Ooops.

Hope you have a great day, my dear!

I have those exact same pair of shorts and am wearing them today! I love free people. I got mine last summer on sale at Dillards, fashion square. The color and fit always puts me in a good mood when I wear them. I'm glad to see you pair them with a print. They look great. I always wear mine with solid black or white, but I think it's time to get a bit more adventurous! ;)

Oh, cringing for you with the poop... that would have woken me right up for sure!

Congrats on the new puppy! Work to train them out of the crate so they look at the whole house as their "crate!" And soon his little bladder will grow so he can sleep through the night.

So you did get a puppy! Yay! I love dogs. I'm visiting my aunt right now, and she has a dog. And before that, I was visiting my Dad and HE has a dog. When I leave, I'm really going to miss being around a dog!
