Awkward & Awesome Thursday

Hi Ya'll!
Thanks for stopping by for Awkward & Awesome Thursday.
I had an embarrassingly awkward moment or two this week!
Awkward:
  • Being pulled up on stage to dance with a dude that looked exactly like Cee Lo Green to dance to Red Solo Cup for my birthday party at Howl at the Moon. (i will not lie...dude could dance)
  • Driving up to school with son2 Monday morning to an empty parking lot and no students...yea, you guessed it.  No school that day!!  We looked at each and said at the same time, "We are idiots!"
  • Realizing that the only reason my kitchen floor ever looked clean was because the dog was apparently keeping it clean.  We miss you Chester, hope you are licking as many kitchen floors as you can up in doggie heaven!
  • So excited to try my new Tart, gel eyeliner pencil.  As soon as I drew the first line across my lid, my eye started to cloud over, swell, water and burn!  Needless to say the rest of the day I looked like I had been crying for 3 days!!
  • Experiencing the fact that eating cough drops all day long will result in some unpleasant tummy side effects.  Let's just say that I am warning you NOT to do this!!  Go the doctor and get some REAL cough medicine.
Awesome:
  • My birthday party!! (yea, I am still talking about it)
  • Revlon Lip Butters.  Have you tried these things??  They are awesome.  My favorite colors are Red Velvet and Sweet Tart.
  • Getting the cutest dress with some b'day gift cards.  It is a spring dress so it will have to wait to come out and play.
  • Finally finishing The Hunger Games.  Now I can't wait for the movie to come out.
  • Girlfriends getting together to celebrate our friend Carla with a birthday lunch.
 I wore this on Monday when it was freezing cold and rainy.  Honestly, I picked it out for the warmth value and that was about it. 
I just wanted to stay in bed in my pj's and this was the closest I could get. 
I did add the statement necklace and bracelet so I looked like I did at least try and put some thought into this outfit!
And my cords are teal, 
so I didn't look completely like Johnny Cash.(you know the man in black)

Now fire away and tell me your awkward or awesome moment this week.  
I am sure somebody else out there took their kid to school when school wasn't even in session!!

I'm reading the last Hunger Games book right now. The movie should be pretty good.

That necklace is awesome. I love outfits like that where you look put together but you feel like you're wearing jammie jams.

Recently I found Henry the dog licking the carpet like a little vacuum cleaner.

Ugh, allergic reactions to makeup are the worst! That used to happen to me with mascara all the time. Hmmm something awkward... had a job interview, got there are they were conducting interviews in the lobby so I hear about half of the interview before me. Pretty awkward. I like this outfit! I'm going to call it lounge chic.

Your outfit is adorable.

I love how you incorporate an awkward and awesome section in this post. Glad you had a lot of awesome to share. And your awkward moments just made me laugh. Well the first two did. The one about your dog is cute and sorry about your lost. And as for the eyeliner and cough drop, sorry you had to go through that. But I love funny awkward moments. Makes life not so boring =P

Great blog. I am now a new follower.

No wonder I loved that trench! It's lovely btw.

And that tunic is adorable on you. Really flattering considering it's a tunic yes?

Great outfit.
