Awkward and Awesome Thursday

It has been quite a week and personally, I am glad it is almost over.
Bonus that it is ending on a nice holiday weekend.
Awkward:
  • Getting yelled at by the pedicurist for using navy blue nail polish on my toes.
  • Washing the floor mats and putting them out in the sun to dry when all of a sudden a storm rolls in and you are not around to bring the mats back inside.
  • Lady in Walmart stops in the middle of the main aisle, picks up her two liter bottle of Ginger Ale, opens it up and starts drinking it right there.
  • Husband breaking an antique lamp that we have had forever.
  • Getting the crap scared out of you by a harmless, helpless little frog.  Why are they lurking in a dark garage in the middle of an electrical storm anyway.
 Awesome:
  • Getting new couches for our family room.
  • Son2's quote under his senior picture in the yearbook.  His quote was..."Quote".
  • Getting free plants from the neighbors
  • Eating my first watermelon of the season!!
  • Stating The Game of Thrones books
 Stripes and chambray. 
 Two of my favorite things.
Just a comfy, casual look to keep me warm in the freezing air conditioning.

Got a an awkward or awesome moment to share?
Love to hear it.

Guessing the lady at Walmart was really thirsty ;) and ya never know what's going to hop in front of you!

When my son was 7 he brought home a baggy full of about 100 baby tree frogs. Wanting to show daddy prior to their release, input them in a plastic covered critter catcher. At about 2 a.m we heard a crash. My cat pushed the container off the counter and frogs were everywhere. We attempted to capture as many as possible .. Months later, various house guests would be using the restroom and a little frog would hop by... Awkward

I'm on the 3rd Hunger Games book- once you start you can't stop- so addictive! I will admit to starting to eat groceries before getting to the checkotut but chugging a 2L pop- that's People of Walmart stuff! Love the red shoes & the top and "quote"- love it!
