Awkard and Awesome Thursday

Did you know that with the exception of Friday, Thursday is the most welcome weekday.
I am guessing because of it's proximity to the weekend.
I hope yours is a nice Thursday!
 Awkward:
  • Ordering two coffees from McDonald's drive thru and being re-routed to the waiting area in the parking lot.  About 8 minutes later they brought our coffee out to us.
  • Turns out JOE is addicted to EOS mint lip balm.  Whether it is in the container, on your lips or anywhere else.
  • Thinking you sent a text to someone and wondering why they never answered, only to realize you never hit send.
  • Trying to think of a gift for someone and then suddenly realizing you already bought a gift and then trying to remember where you put said gift.
  • Getting a friend request on Facebook from someone you have no idea who they are, but they are friends with half the people you are friends with.

 Awesome:
  • Kenny Chesney has a new album out this week.  Life On A Rock
  • Son2 coming home from college for the whole summer.
  • Finding out the beach trip you were planning with friends is a definite GO!
  • An impromptu dinner with friends.
  • 2 new restaurants opening in the shopping center across the street from my subdivision.

I went with a peach monochromatic look here with tiny pops of mint.
I think I have said this before: 
 I always worry when I go monochromatic that people look at me think...
wow, she is matchy, matchy!

Let's hear about your awkward and awesome week.

I worked all my life to get matching outfits. And when I finally had the things I liked, matching stuff is suddenly out of style. I think not. I am making the choice to match. Period..

Alexandra Shook said...

I do that all the time with texts! It's awful. I'm always like.... oh.

I love monochrome, never think it is too matchy!

Jessi said...

I don't think it's too matchy with the different shades and your patterned top! I love the little pops of mint, especially that belt. This is such a cute look!

Nothing wrong with a bit of matchy match now and again! Lovely shade on you, Brett.
Awesome day here - sunshine and a flea market, and about to have a glass of wine! xxxxx

I love these colours on you, I think this is a lovely outfit. and I think injecting the green colour is a great accent. I enjoyed reading your awkward and awesome notes -made me smile.

I love this monochromatic look, I always find hue on hue very elegant and those Gap sandals are fab! There's a waiting area in McDonalds? Crazy! I love ESO lip balms too!

I really like monochromatic looks and this one is great! The pops of mint were a great accent color.

That's funny about Joe liking the EOS chapstick. That stuff really works though, ha ha! Got your snail mail today. It was a nice surprise after a long day. Heather
