Awkward and Awesome Thursday

How has your week been so far?
Has awkwardness or awesomeness abounded?
Awkward:
  • When you think you are charging your phone, but the connector isn't connected all the way and you are still at 33% after 3hours of charging.
  • Geriatric Day at Walmart!
  • Wearing a white dress and getting caught in a torrential down pour.
  • When you are having a bad day and you decide the the goodness of fatty, salty fast food will make your feel better.  And it does, it tastes so good going down.  THEN: 25 minutes later you think you are going to die of a stomach explosion because it feels like you have 200 tons of lead in there!
  • Humidity Hair!!
 Awesome:
  • The yummy goodness of The Taste of Charlotte.
  • When you are standing in a long line and you become BFF's for that 6-7 minutes you are standing next to someone.
  • Parties for friends (even if it is a going away party)
  • Consistent and Loyal Prayer Warriors!
  • That moment you walk into the air conditioned house after a long hot walk outside.
I have been seeing the combo of red and mint all over the place lately. 
 It is a combo I would not naturally put together,
 but it really does work well.
  It might be one of my new favorite color combos? 

Are you a fan of this color combo?
Have you worn it together before?

I have been loving this combo too. I tried it with a mint top and red heels last week.

I can relate to your phone charger not being connected. That happened this week with the deep fryer. After 20 minutes I couldn't figure out why it wasn't getting hot! It wasn't plugged in all the way. Heather

Yep, did that with the phone charger recently!

I like the look of an all-white outfit, and have thought about trying it out - but I'm always afraid that the one day I decide to wear white, I'll get caught in an unexpected downpour!
Great color combo - I don't think I own anything mint, but I do like red and turquoise together. :)

I never would have thought of this color combo before but love it on you! I'll have to try it out myself now - thanks for the inspiration!

yes, i'm a fan of the red and mint combo. i've been using it in my art. i really like your outfit, and am jealous it's cool enough where you live to wear a sweater. my week was a whole lot of awkward, with some nice snippets of awesome. i like making friends while waiting in line too. what's geriatric day at walmart? ;)

I think I have got very few red clothes in my wardrobe ( without a precise reason ). Your combination of colours is bright and suits you so well!
Amusing awkwards, especially the first one!
