Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Can you believe that it is already Thursday??
Where does the time go?
Awkward:
  • Husband volunteering our house for an event without talking to me first.
  • Realizing you and your friend bought the exact same shoes.
  • Trying to get into the wrong car in the parking lot. (there should be more car color choices!)
  • Getting a new curling iron that happened to be defective and burning the crap out of my forehead. 
  • Recording the entire first season of Game of Thrones on my free HBO weekend, only to realize the final episode didn't record.  
 Awesome:
  • Discovering "Draw Something".  Why haven't I been playing this all along??
  • Son1 packing his entire summer into 1 carry on bag.  How he did this I will never know!
  • My new monogrammed cell phone cover!
  • Finally ordering a new camera!!!!!!
  • Meeting a friend for lunch at a restaurant that was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
 
 A casual look for working in my studio.
  Not crazy about the rolled cuffs. 
 Honestly, I have had these pants forever and never even knew they had the little tabs to keep the cuffs up.  
I don't think I will be doing this again.

How has your week been so far?
Want to share anything awkward or awesome?

I think it's one thing to realize you and your stylish friend bought the same shoes, but I've actually bought the same shoes as my husband's GRANDMOTHER on more than one occasion. Yikes.

I hope your forehead heals quickly. That's painful!

I know how your husband can make it up to you. He should bring you to San Francisco for a mini vacay!

Like Kelley, I think the rolled cuffs really work.

xo,

Love those pants Brett - so cute! And trying to get into the wrong car is so awkward, and I've definitely done that before too :)

Draw something is awesome. My husband and I play it a lot.

So funny! My husband will do the same thing. You just can't EASILLY through together a dinner party! Also good to know I'm not the only one that tries to get in to the wrong car ;)

I love this top and the cargo pants! Brett it sounds like an interesting week you certainly had!

What an event at the house and not consulted? That deserves a gift! Rolled cuffs totally worked.

Eeeeekk I love D3- I would love to eat at one of those diners! Which one was it? If my man volunteered our messy condo for an event I would be less than thrilled! Love this patterned top and those sandals are great- I can't believe you look that good working in the studio!

I actually think the roll cuffed looks good. I love game of thrones and I am currently reading the 700something page book. It is taking forever! It is helping me connect the characters better though. Still have yet to try draw something! Enjoy your weekend!

you look great! the cuffs are fun!..a nice twist!
my husband learned early in our marriage about NOT volunteering without asking me...like inviting 5 guys over for dinner..thought I would be happy to cook!

Oh, that car thing happens to me so often, I know one day an owner is going to call the cops :(

Sorry about the curling iron and the same shoes as your GF :)

Cute pants!
