Awkward and Awesome Thursday

And it's Thursday again!
Seems like it was just Thursday a day or so ago.
I guess when you are on a mini-vacay, time really does fly!
Awkward:
  • Having birds trapped in your garage while you are gone for 6 days and coming home to bird poo everywhere.
  • Going fishing and only catching fish that you can't eat.  Luckily others were better at fishing for eatable fish than I was.
  • Carefully picking out an outfit for your out of town college reunion and then the weather turns cold and you end up wearing your mother's coat the whole time.  A totally wasted outfit!
  • Watching your new dog carefully take a mouthful of food out of his bowl and place it on the floor and then begin to eat it.
  • Worrying that you won't recognize people at your reunion and then literally Not recognizing some.
 
 Awesome:
  • Seeing old friends you haven't seen in 25+ years.
  • Spending 3 days at the lake only doing exactly what you want to do.
  • Getting a new family member.  Our rescue dog-JOE.  He is a 2 year old terrier mix. (pics to come soon)
  • A real live crawfish boil.  I haven't been to one in years and I was in heaven.
  • Eating at old college haunts and the food being as good as you remember it.
 
 Another casual look to try and figure out how to outsmart the changing weather.
I think button ups are my go to look and if you throw on a scarf and cardi,
 you can't go wrong.

Let's hear about your awkward or awesome week in the comments.

Can't wait to meet your new addition Joe! That happened to me at my 10 yr high school reunion (forgetting names). This guy was just a chatting away and I drew a total blank and that was only after 10 yrs!

I like your double denim look and of course the pop of pink! Heather
