Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Good Thursday to all you readers out there.
I hope your week has been pretty awesome so far.
Awkward:
  • My dog locking me out of the house.  It is a long story involving a leash, a towel and a door knob.
  • Realizing you forgot to add the eggs to the cake mix 5 minutes after you put the cake in the oven.  (I did go back and add the eggs, all was not lost)
  • Having to leave your old toilet on the curb in front of your house for bulk pick up to come and retrieve.
  • Cutting the heck out of my thumb, but worse...one can't text with a band aid on their thumb.
  • The dog throwing up UNDER the bed.
 Awesome:
  • Husband bringing me some delicious macaroons from the Ritz Carlton.
  • A friend delivering the most beautiful orchid to my front door just to celebrate the fact that we have been friends for 10 years.
  • Seeing tiny little green tomatoes on my tomato plants.
  • Finally being able to get my hair into a ponytail again!
  • New kitchen knives!!
A linen skirt for summer is a must have. 
 I don't mind the wrinkles of linen at all.
This outfit called for a pop of
 turquoise along side the pink and orange.
It was one of those bad summer hair days 
and
 I was so happy to be able to get my hair
 into a baby bun.

Are you a fan of linen for summer?
Do you mind the wrinkle factor?

Oh my goodness, some of your awkwards this week sound pretty bad- hope your thumb is okay! Was it the new knives? And if my dog threw up UNDER the bed I think I would cry. What a sweet friend you have, to bring you flowers just because. Have a great day!

Brett - this is such a great summer outfit, you look so comfortable yet pulled together! I really like the texture of the linen when paired with that top. Linen wrinkles don't bother me at all. And stripes ... you can't go wrong with them. :)

Brett you look adorable, I love that top. And yes, for some reason I always forget to add the eggs in my recipes.

I wore something a little similar today! Lacey top and patterned skirt. Great minds think alike!

Funny to forget to add eggs to the cake!
I like your linen skirt. One of the advantages of linen is that it is useless to spend too much time in ironig it!

Nice, colourful summer outfit. Especially like your sandals.
