Awkward And Awesome Thursday

Seems like this week just started, but here we are already on Thursday.  That means it's time for Awkward and Awesome Thursday brought to you by...Sydney over on The Day Book.
Have you seen her lately?  The cutest pregnant woman on earth!


Awkward:
  • Dude cutting his nails in the airport while carrying on a conversation with other dude across from him.
  • Out at the after, after party this weekend for my reunion.  The place where we were had a pool table and there was poo, yes actual dog poo under the pool table!
  • Parking like a drunken idiot because I was so busy looking at this ladies boots while she crossed the parking lot
  • Going to the dentist, admit it... it's just abnormal to have someone sticking their hands in your mouth with sharp instruments.
  • Thinking it would be a good idea to walk into this new accessory store that was having it's Grand Opening.  I really thought the store was going to be kind of a dud, so no worries.  Danger! Red Alert!  The store was awesome, somehow I just turned myself around and got out of there!
Awesome:
  • Boarding my flight from Houston to Monroe and the flight attendant saying just sit anywhere you would like, the flight is not full.  We had about 10 people on board!
  • My great weekend in Monroe, Louisiana at my reunion.
  • My mom buying me a door knocker at this cute little shop.  I have been asking husband for a door knocker for Christmas for the last 4 years!  I finally have one now.
  • The cool waterfall being built on our street.  I hope to use it as a backdrop to take pictures.  That is if I can get the courage to stand in the street and take pictures.
  • Burning my Hot Chocolate candle from Bath & Body Works on these cool mornings.  Smells so yummy!!
I decided to wear a little autumn color today! 
 Even though it is already 80 degrees out
I felt cool and comfortable and had a little more bounce in my step.
I love these high waisted, wide waist band pants from Express.
  They are so comfortable and I feel like my tummy is being held in all day by that waist band.
I love the combination of chocolate brown and this orangey/coral. 
 I really didn't know what shirt to put on with this cardi and pants so I just opted for a plain white T. 
 Can't go wrong with a plain white T!

Are you starting to work some of the autumn colors into your wardrobe? 
 What are some of your favorite color combinations for fall? 
 Would love to hear and maybe even copy!!

Have an Awesome Thursday!!

I love a plain white t -- I've been on the hunt for the perfect one actually! I like how you tied that scarf too!

Darling! I love these colors on you. That scarf is incredible.

I'm glad you had a wonderful reunion. But I'm really sorry about inappropriate nail clipping guy. SO gross.

xoxo,
Tracy

<3 your scarf, ma'am! You look so lively in these fall colors! Yes, since it got cold here I've started to wear more autumn-y colors. I actually can't remember what I've been wearing, but I took pictures so they'll be up soon! Mustard yellow is one of my favorites, though.

Glad you had a swell time at your reunion!

OH. And the nail clipping thing? My mom's boss used to do it when he was meeting with clients. :| :| :| So glad she doesn't work there anymore.

I like the orange/coral and brown combo! And a flight with 10 people...yikes, you should have all sat in first class!

I love this outfit- the brown and coral colours look great together! Ugh about the guy cutting his toenails- I don't know why but that sound is worse to me than nails on a chalkboard! And eeek about the poo under the pool table!
