Awkward and Awesome Thursday

It seems this week I had way too many awkward moments.
Not sure what kind of mojo was following me around, but it wasn't the good kind!
 Awkward:
  • Dropped off some things at dry cleaners and dude asked if I wanted to pick up my other stuff.  Other stuff??  Husband had about 5 pairs of pants I had forgotten to pick up, a loooong time ago
  • Totally ran out of deodorant.  How does one do that?  I always have back up.  Had to use husbands, felt self conscious all day.
  • The rack I keep all of my scarves on in my closet completely fell down.  Just fell, it wasn't provoked at all.  Scared me to death.
  • Dear drivers.... if you are going to go under the speed limit please stay in the right hand lane.
  • Tried to get some melted plastic off curling iron with "goo gone".  DO NOT attempt this.  Not only does my curling iron smell horrible when it heats up, the smell transfers to my hair. (time for a new curling iron?)
 
 Awesome:
  • Planted my vegetable garden
  • Son1 is coming home on Wednesday (only for a week before he leaves for the summer though)
  • Got my new glasses, man it is good to see clearly again
  • The nice guy at the British Antique store (even though he kept watching me while I was taking pictures)
  • GIRLS WEEKEND AT THE LAKE!!!!!!! starts tomorrow!!!!
I was so self-conscious taking these pictures that these are literally the only 3 pictures I took. 
 I really didn't think the dude would come out and watch me snap some photos.
I had a whole plan in my head.

 The guy made me so nervous, I forgot to take my glasses off.
  The plus side of that is that now you can see my new specs.


I hope your week had more awesome than awkward
 (believe me I could have kept going)

That top picture is so so cute! I love the picture and the outfit! Lake fun sounds so inviting!

Sarah Stright said...

Like the new specs :) and I love that you wore a short sleeve sweater with your leopard shirt. So cute.

I really hope he was out there yelling, "Work it, girl!" in a British accent. But I suppose that would have made your awesome list, and I don't see it there. BOO.

Have a fun weekend! I'll be glad when it warms up enough here to go to the lake. I'm trying kayaking this summer.

Ashley said...

P.S. I LOVE the new glasses!

I can't believe he came out to watch- that would throw me off too! This is such a great outfit- the coral and leopard is beautiful together! Yay for girls weekend and boo for running out of deo- that happened to me recently so man's Speed Stick it was!

Good that we can find humor in these kinds of things and like your look with the glasses

Too cute!
Love your blouse! I have one very similar that I wear often...meow!
You should have asked the nice guy to take your photos!

I've had to use the hubs' products because I ran out of my own more times than I can count!

Peggy said...

we are the leopard ladies today!! You look great - love it with the necklace. And the new glasses are wonderful!

J9 STYLE said...

Love the outfit and new glasses. And it sounds like you need a new curling iron.

I love your awkward moments. SO funny. Especially the goo gone...

So cool that you grew up in Monroe! My sister teaches freshman English at Ruston High and I have a cousin that lives in Monroe. Small world!

that phone box is so cute, I hope you can go back again when it's less awkward,haha.

you must have some heavy scarfs, huh?
at least it wasn't anything breakable.

had that happen once with the shelf that holds all our mugs and glasses... it was so scary and a huge mess.

Chic on the Cheap

Leopard and coral for the win! I like the touches of blue you've scattered throughout as well.

Your photos came out great :) I used to care about people watching me, but one day I just decided that no, I don't really. Took me a long time though, and if people outright stare for a long time I deem them weirdos and feel kind of odd.

Laura said...

You look great! Love the glasses. Have a great time at the lake!

This is my favorite series you do, Brett. I always chuckle out loud at the awkward. LOVE your new glasses, love the interesting setting. So glad you "put yourself out there." To heck w/ the dude! It made your post so much more fun! xo

Love your leopard print! And hilarious awkwardness :) But the pics (and glasses) look great!

Reva said...

Oh Brett!
love the color combo!!!
I use fingernail polish remover on my iron when it gets icky-works like a charm!
Hugs

Love the coral and leopard together, and the great belt and necklace. You always have the best accessories!

Deborah said...

That guy is making me laugh! I totally get being nervous with him watching. I would have been beside myself because I always assume EVERYONE is looking at me.

No one is looking at me. :)

I'd love to know how style bloggers get over the fear of others watching them take their pics. I will bolt in a skinny minute if I think anyone other than family is looking :P

I'm glad you left your glasses on - they are totes adorable. Love the animal print with the blue necklace.
