Awkward And Awesome Thursday

Awkward and Awesome Thursday is back today after skipping last week.
Seriously, where did the week go and where the heck is October going?
Awkward:
  • Having someone call the front desk where I volunteer and advise me that a VIP is coming in.  His name is Hank and he is an older gentleman, be on the look out for him.  The "older" gentleman turned out to be MY age.  The rest of the day kind of went down hill from there!
  • Caught son2 feeding the dog cereal because we ran out of dog food and he didn't want me to know that he forgot to tell me.
  • All this traveling I have been doing put me into a situation where I am reading 2 different books at once.  It's too much, I can't do it!!  It takes me a page and a half to figure out what the story line is again.  Please tell me I am not the only one like this out there!
  • Was in Trader Joes the other day and saw the Wall of Fame.  Does your TJ have this?  Regular customers that think they look like celebrities?  It is just embarrassing for all involved.
  • Reading in front of a group of people and not only reading the wrong thing once, but twice! See people, being prepared really does pay.



Awesome:
  • Son2 filing his very last college application!!!
  • Spending last weekend with son1.
  • Having a friend bring me yummy pumpkin cookies for absolutely no reason at all.
  • Being a team player on Wendy Brandes' black and denim team.  Check it out here
  • Leaving for Vegas on Saturday. I am a Vegas Virgin and I can't wait to go!
Check out the nails, don't forget purple is for
 and pink is for
I actually wore this last Friday.
  Wendy challenged people to show different ways to wear a black shirt and jeans. 
This is my interpretation.

Oooh, Vegas! We've never been, but the Hubs wants to run the Vegas marathon someday, so one day, I guess. =)

Have a good time! You look fantastic!

Our Trader Joe's does not have a Wall of Fame, and that makes me glad.

Vegas I am super duper jealous- I've always wanted to go! I would wear glitz, glam, sequins and feather boas! I'm sure the dog wasn't complaining about the cereal- he probably loved it! Cute sequin t- I wish we had J Crew!

Dress like you. You don't need to pack anything special. You are special enough. Plus your every day wear will be WAY better than the people that have packed their "vacation clothes." You will see lots of cargo shorts worn with socks and dress shoes. OH, and the hawaiian shirt.

Are you guys going to see any of the Cirque shows?

xo,
Tracy

Maybe awkward #1 is a compliment? Like no one can believe you're that age???

The Hall of TJ Shame made me laugh out loud for real!

I got married in Vegas! You will have a blast. It's just naughty, indulgent fun.
