Awkward and Awesome Friday

The last Friday before the in-saneness of the holidays begins!!!
Are you ready?????
  • Taking a nice hot shower when it is freezing cold and forgetting to have a towel ready when you get out.
  • Having husband take pictures of me in a restaurant and store for a blog post.
  • Discovering something gross is leaking out of the bottom of your car.
  • As you are being bagged in the grocery line you suddenly remember an important item you forgot to pick up.
  • Having a conversation with someone who is trying to explain something to you that you have absolutely no knowledge about.
  • Finding out the leak from the car was probably caused because the person that changed your oil didn't screw the oil cap on correctly.
  • Watching a couple register for wedding gifts at Target.  I want one of those registry guns!!
  • Glitter
  • My new favorite show, Alaska:The Last Frontier.
  • My first Skinny Peppermint Mocha of the season.
This outfit was actually inspired by a friend sending me a link to a page in the Land's End catalog.
She said the page immediately reminded her of me.
I took all the elements I liked from the page and made my own outfit. 
 Oddly enough, nothing I am wearing is from Land's End.

Tell us about your awkward or awesome moments this week in the comments section.

My teen students have begun to say AWESOME when something goes terribly wrong...I am finding that AWESOME is beginning to have a new meaning. They always teach me a lot about semantics...like how they took the word SUCKS from a bad word to an accepted word!! But, I still like to use AWESOME FOR the really great...like a skinny peppermint mocha and a great look like you are wearing here...you look AWESOME in a good way!!

Very nice outfit !! Laid back and elegant.
PS I don't mind at all who stares at me if I take photos or have somebody take photos of me in the street, in a building, whereever.
