Awkward and Awesome Thursday

A big thanks to everyone that responded to yesterday's blog question.
My favorite reply was from Megan...

"I always have this grand vision of a beautiful picnic filled with wine and fine cheeses, butterflies fluttering by... when really I just get bit by mosquitoes with a Subway sandwich"

Now on to Awkward and Awesomeness....
 Awkward:
  • When you are wearing new shoes and you keep walking right out of the shoes
  • Catching a dish towel on fire by leaving it on lit stove
  • Gyno appointment
  • Heading out to walk and ipod runs out of power 5 minutes into walk
  • A wayward spark hitting the deck and smoldering undetected causing a nasty hole in the deck.
Awesome:
  • Son2 finishing his Senior Exit Project!!
  • A rooftop bar with girl friends
  • Disassembling old broken door lock and installing a new one all by myself
  • My friend's new born baby!!
  • A little shoe shopping
If you didn't get a chance to weigh in on the fun or not fun post please check it out here and leave your 2 cents.

As always feel free to share your awkward or awesome moment this week!

I walked right out of my shoes in the cafeteria at work last week. Not cool!

Yeah, what's the deal with walking out of shoes?? Sometimes my pumps will just slip right off when I'm walking. I don't get it.

You look so cute. Loving the sequin tank over the blouse. I've been meaning to try that look.

Also, you must have left your comment on my blog as I was reading your post. So funny.

xoxo,

Damn. Lots of fire this week, huh? The coffee shop I work at got hit with lightning or something on Monday. No actual fire, but it screwed EVERYTHING up. Ugh.

Love the outfit, as always. Especially the jacket. Reminded me that I have a Levi's one that I haven't worn lately, so I'm going to wear it tomorrow. YOU'VE INSPIRED ME!

Love the sequins with the yellow - is it gingham? :) I would love a bit of rooftop bar w/ girlfriends right about now!

Ooo family reunions are really not fun, while the only 'reunion' we've had was when my grandmother passed, that was certainly a production. I love how you styled the yellow shirt, it looks great with the sequins tank. So any decisions on the dslr?

Lol! Yes, those OBGYN appointments are definitely awkward! Once I scheduled my Pap on the same day as my Mammogram ~ not a good idea and WHY must they make a pancake out of my breast?? I found myself wanting to fluff them up afterwards.
