Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Happy Thursday!
Time for Awkwardness and Awesomeness.
Awkward:
  • Realizing that I am washing my face with shampoo and not face wash while in the shower.  (In my defense, I am using samples of each and the bottles DO look quite similar)
  • Blogger changing those word verifications to unreadable, untypable, frustrating words.  I beg of you to turn off the word verification if you have it on your blog!!!
  • Being asked to move to the other side of the doctors waiting room because my cough was disturbing others.
  • Accidentally deleting a show from the DVR before I actually got to watch it.
  • Hearing Whitney Houston songs every where I go.  I know she just passed away and I will be the first to admit her voice was heavenly, but seriously....
Awesome:
  • While sick, I found this Australian TV series that I just fell in love with.  It is called McCloud's Daughters.  If you have Netflix, you should check it out.
  • Husband bringing home some very fancy, designer chocolates from Canada.
  • Sitting next to a bee keeper at dinner the other night. Fascinating!
  • My Kindle Fire.  A lifesaver while I was sick.
  • Hardcore prescription cough medicine! (you know what I'm talking about)
 Speaking of awkward...this is a pretty awkward picture. 
 I just stepped into a big muddy spot right when the timer went off.
I decided to give electric blue and mustard a try.
  I mixed in some turquoise accessories for some color variation on the blues.  

Did you have any Awkward or Awesome moments this week?
How about this color combo, is it something you would wear?

mustard sweater-Loft

Love those jeans! Everyone's into red right now but I'm all about the blue. Glad you're feeling better (chocolates do that, don't they?)

I had that mustard sweater but it made me look green. haha. I had to sell it. You look great in it. I love the combo of colors too.

You're so pretty. I hope you have fun at the shower. I think the ON dress would be great for that.

xo,
Tracy

Those jeans look awesome Brett! I totally agree about the new word verification! OMG--it is a nightmare. I cannot read some of the letters and forget turning on the sound option!

You are rocking the brights these days- this colour combination is divine (I paired yellow with blue today too!) Beekeeper- now that's an interesting dinner guest! Laughing about the shampoo story- something I would do!

Peggy said...

haha what a fun post! And yes please turn off the word verifications - they are so damn difficult now!

No I don't watch The Hour, I'll have to look up her eyeliner :)

Ashley said...

WHAT IS THAT SWEATER?!?! I love it. It fits you so well. And it's a great color. And it lies so nicely on your body. Am I being creepy yet?

Your awkward and awesome posts are my favorites. I agree about the horrid word verification. Ew. Ew. Ew. And I'm glad you're feeling better now!

Alex Elizabeth said...

If you can't find this outfit later I totally took it, all right? I never would have thought to put bright yellow and blue together but it looks really nice. If only I could find those blue pants!

You got to meet a beekeeper? I'm jealous. I started a new internship this week. So far I've created a lot of shipping labels.

Dawn said...

Great jeans Brett. So glad you are feeling better. It seems that you had good things to keep you occupied though. I laughed when you were washing your face with shampoo...dawn suitcase vignettes xo

"Being asked to move to the other side of the doctors waiting room because my cough was disturbing others." -- that's so rude! Where the hell do they think they are, in a library? It's a doctor's office! God!
