Awkward and Awesome Friday

It's the first Friday in October.
I'm not sure how that exactly happened, but let's roll with it.
 
Awkward:
  • Getting locked out of your apple account for 8 hours before tech support will let you back in.
  • Chopping habanero peppers without gloves and having everything you touch for the next 4 days taste like peppers and burn your mouth, eyes, and nose.
  • Ordering something online and when you receive it, it looks like a piece of crap.
  • Christmas trees in store windows.
  • Forgetting a bag of merchandise at Target and having the check out person wave you down to give it to you.
 
Awesome:
  • Husband sitting next to an old neighbor on a flight home.
  • Catching up on Game of Thrones.
  • Pumpkins and Mums everywhere!
  • Postagram, you gotta check out this fun app.
  • Teaching your dog a new trick.
 
This is how I dress when I need to be somewhere really fast
 and I didn't plan on going anywhere.
The blazer will always pull the look together!

Let's hear about your awkward and awesome moments this week.

Yes, gotta love a blazer! Love your awkward and awesome list... Can relate to leaving the bag at checkout one... just life with my ADD brain...
My awkward one for the week was my daughter telling me that her GRE test score results are high enough to get her into Stanford's Phd program and with my migraine , I didn't even respond. I realized it 2 hours later and made amends!

Dayum, gurl, you look fabo. I can't tell you got dressed on the fly! I know I'm late to the party, but I love your glasses.

Retailers, you got Christmas stuff on display, I walk outta your store with no purchase. It's just too off-kilter :(

Love ya,
Lynne

Brett,
LOve your Old navy jeans and the stripe blazer, so cool with the graphic tee! I agree, way to early for Xmas trees!

I think this is one of my favorites from you! And I hate seeing Christmas trees already - I wish we didn't have to rush the holidays!!

Thanks for the inspiration. I have a jacket like that and I can copy this look. Sort of.

I hate ordering things online and not having them look like the picture! Not only does your blazer make you look pulled together, your red jeans look fantastic, too!

I hate when I order something online and it looks so different when it arrives. I really feel like the company should take responsibility for my frustrations, time, energy, and the hope and excitement I invest in anticipation of the item. Anyway, I love your awkward/awesome list!
