Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Hello Thursday!  
And hello fellow bloggers, I hope your week has been going well.
My week has been pretty quiet, but as always...there have been moments of awkwardness and awesomeness.
Awkward:
  • The moment when you realize there are more weeds in your yard than there is grass.
  • The lady with the 'tude at the grocery store.  Why do some people think they are more entitled than others?
  • Husband leaving to go out of town and forgetting his suitcase.  I was able to get it to him before his flight left.
  • Walking through a store numerous times even though you already know they don't have what you want.  Why do I always think the item will suddenly appear?
  • When you can't remember if something really happened or if you actually just dreamed that it happened.
 
 Awesome:
  • Dole Banana Dippers: these things are awesome.  I found them at Costco.  They are banana slices dipped in dark chocolate and they are only 100 calories per bag.  Look in the frozen foods section for them.
  • A guy stopping me and telling me he liked my outfit.
  • The azaleas beginning to bloom in my yard and all over town.
  • Husband going to the Master's golf tournament.
  • Rediscovering a favorite color nail polish: Mod Squad by Essie. 
I decided to experiment with a bit more pattern mixing. 
 I thought paisley and stripes, why not?
I think the combo turned out well. 
 I added pops of orange that are present in the paisley design to give the outfit some fun. 
 I am wearing the Mod Squad nail color on my nails by the way.

Let's hear about your awkward and awesome moments this week in the comments!

First off, I really like this pattern mixing. Paisley and stripes go so well together!

I had an awkward moment at the grocery store. I kept running into the same guy in every aisle and I am pretty sure he was hitting on me or stalking me, LOL. It was kind of creepy!

This was me this morning in Wal-mart. I was looking for eye makeup remover.

"When you can't remember if something really happened or if you actually just dreamed that it happened."

I was recently telling someone about something that happened to me, and then I stopped and thought to myself, "did it really?"

"A guy stopping me and telling me he liked my outfit."

This happened to me in Walmart this morning.


I love your awkward and awesome Thursdays.

Awesome Moment: Your necklace!!

Awkward Moment: The grocery employee handing out samples who watched me walk back and forth and back and forth...a day of poor planning, no list. It took three times for her to stop asking me if I wanted a sample!!
