Awkward And Awesome Thursday

I don't know what the weather is where you are, but for the last two days here it has been rainy and gloomy!
Makes me just want to stay in my sweats all day long.  Do you have a hard time getting dressed on days like these?
Awkward:
  • Going to 30 year High School Reunion this weekend (see Awesome)
  • Being given the green light to start back up with yoga after my long injury recovery (see Awesome)
  • Getting caught sitting between two gentlemen having a very heated sports argument in the waiting room at Physical Therapy
  • Not being able to figure out how to use the phone system on my first day in a new volunteer position (I apologize to all of those I accidentally hung up on!)
  • Husband telling me I will have to use a carry on piece of luggage for this weekend trip.  (Not using his regular airline where he gets all the perks!) 
Awesome:
  • Going to my 30 year High School Reunion this weekend (see Awkward)
  • Being given the green light to start back up with yoga after my long injury recovery (see Awkward)
  • Starting a new volunteer position at Elevation Church working the front office.  This is the church I attend and you should definitely go check out the website!  You won't be disappointed.
  • Going with a girlfriend for a mani/pedi indulgence.
  • Being included in Wendy Brandes article about snakeskin and color blocking!  click here to see the article
  I know, I wore these pants this week already! 
 I can't help it.  I love them. 
 I went with a blue variation theme here.
  Bright blue pants, navy stripe top and a more muted blue in the necklace.
I had to get the Wellies back out. 
 It was actually raining real rain!

Hope you have had an awesome week! 
 I will be leaving at o'dark-thirty in the morning for Louisiana to go to my high school reunion. 
 Hopefully, I will have some fun photos to share next week.

That's a pretty outfit. The stripes look good on you; the color of the pants is interesting; and the bracelets add visual appeal. Good luck at your reunion.

Thanks for being in the HuffPost story!

And LOL @ "Not being able to figure out how to use the phone system on my first day in a new volunteer position"

30 years? You look AMAZING! And I'm so jealous of your cobalt J Brand skinnies!

bahaha, "o'dark-thirty".

Yes, those jeans are the BEST jeans on you. Ask for a pair for Christmas in dark denim. That way you're not actually buying them and you can stay true to your 100 day thingamabob.

Have fun on your 30th reunion. I just happen to know that you will be the best looking and most stylish woman in the room.

xo,
Tracy

Have fun at your reunion! Hehehehehe. And you're still totally rockin' the pants, btw. Your new volunteer position sounds exciting. Especially the phone part. I've been looking for somewhere to volunteer lately but I don't really have the time to physically be there. So I think I'm going to start writing letters to da troops, since I can do that at work in my free time!

I like the stripes, and those bright jeans really do look great.

You look amazing and I figured it was your 20th reunion! You should wear these cobalt blue jeans for as long as you shall fancy :) they're great! The scarf turned skirt was amazingly comfortable and it didn't budge all day :) I tied a very secure double knot and pinned it!
