Awkward and Awesome Thursday



I know I am a day early for awkward and awesome, 
but I am out of town for the weekend starting this afternoon!
Awkward:
  • Losing your airline reservation.
  • When a dude named Randy keeps calling you and saying that you keep calling him.  I honestly haven't known anyone named Randy for years.
  • When your favorite walking trails get shut down for repairs.
  • When your friend's dog swallows a tennis ball.
  • Practice hiking in your hiking boots and weighed down backpack in gym shorts around your neighborhood.
 Awesome:
  • Found airline reservation!
  • Fresh highlights for your hair.
  • How your garden pops back to life after a little rain.
  • Stopping at a random Saturday church bar b que and being surprised at how good the food is.
  • Being in New Orleans to celebrate the mother-in-laws 75th birthday this weekend.
 
A little camo/stripe number with pops of red.
I keep seeing people in cardi's, scarves and boots on Instagram.
I am not sure where these people live, 
but it is still too hot to dress like that around here!

Any awkward or awesome moments you would like to share this week?

Shades of Purple

Today was the first day of public school here.
Traffic is back in full force, pictures were taken at bus stops and mom's were chatting with each other over coffee.
I was in bed with Joe the dog and a nice hot cup of coffee.
Purple is not a color I wear often. 
 I don't have anything against it,
 I just don't own much.
I do like mixing different shades of purple. 
 I think it creates a nice soft, graceful look.
I added silver bracelets and shoes and let the ruffles
 on my shirt stand in for a necklace.
A very simple outfit, but it exudes femininity.

Are you a fan of shades of purple?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Happy Friday Ya'll!
It has been a pretty quiet week around here.
That can be a nice thing.
 Awkward:
  • When you can't figure out how to turn the timer off of your Keurig and it keeps turning on about every other hour.
  • Husband with a summer cold.
  • Thinking someone is meeting you at your house and they think you are meeting them at their house.
  • Putting a roast in the crock pot for dinner, but no one is home to turn it off when it is done.
  • The darn school buses back at work.  First World problems when your house is the bus stop for elementary, middle and high school.
Awesome:
  • Finding a $25 Amazon gift card when cleaning up the sons bedrooms after they moved out.  Finders Keeper right??!!
  • When something you buy rings up on sale unexpectedly at the register.
  • Super nice friends that donate their unwanted furniture to your sons apartment.
  • Have you tried the GoodReads app?  If you are an avid reader, I highly suggest trying it.
  • Planning a hike on the Appalachian trial for your friends 50th birthday!
 Who can resist leopard and orange together? 
 Who can resist a top that floats when you twirl?
Yes, I do twirl a lot. 
 Just a fun, simple, summer look to beat the heat.

Have you had any awesome or awkward moments this week?

Pink and Green

We finally got some much needed rain around here!
It has been dry for weeks and we have had drought conditions.
 I decided to pull out this old Lilly Pulitzer dress.
It was short enough to keep from getting soaked on the bottom
 yet comfortable enough to run around in the rain.
I decided to pair it with a super light weight green cardigan.
  I mean...Pink and Green!!
I am an 80's child through and through.
Add a statement necklace
 and
 my plain shift dress goes to another level.

Are you a fan of pink and green?

Summer Whites

The sons are all settled in their apartments awaiting a bright future.
It's just husband, the dog and I basking in the quietness of an empty house.
At least until Labor Day weekend!!
I love all white in the summer. 
 I don't wear it that often,
 mostly because it doesn't take me long to get it dirty!
I feel like I need to be boarding a yacht
 or at least a sailboat in this outfit.
I guess a Honda CVR will have to do for now.
Just keeping the outfit simple and fresh.  
 Added all silver accessories to streamline the look.

Do you like an all white look?
Are you like me, only spilling things when dressed in white?
