Awkward and Awesome Friday

It's Friday!!
Just 5 days until Christmas!!
Awkward:
  • When the car in front of you loses a hub cap and you do NASCAR moves to avoid hitting it.
  • Making and decorating cookies for a party you are hosting and the cookies look so much like a 4 year old did them that you decide not to serve them at the party.
  • When you have your purse on the front seat open, you come to a sudden stop and it flips onto the floorboard dumping all of the contents.
  • Walmart having only 4 checkout people this close to Christmas.
  • When did the captcha codes get to be 8,000 numbers long??  I beg of you to turn off the captcha codes!
Awesome:
  • Winning a hair care package from another blogger.
  • Going to see the new Hobbit movie.
  • Finishing ALL my Christmas shopping.
  • When you actually go get your bangs trimmed instead of thinking you can do it yourself.
  • Making a new dish for dinner and everyone says they like it!
 
I decided to add a little glamour to my outfit
 by pairing my sequin tank with a plain,
 chambray shirt, cords and jacket. 
 The pop of color from the scarf just pulls it all together.
Oh and how about those polka dot leather gloves???

Let's hear your awkward and awesome moments in the comments.

I have GOT to have those gloves!

(And the NASCAR scene had me cracking up. Definitely been there before.)

Those polka dot gloves! I'm in love! The sequined top was a really fun addition to this outfit. A lot of those "awkward" things happen to me frequently =/

Brett, I love the way you turned up the volume to this casual outfit with the sequined tank! I have always been a fan of eclectic dressing, and you do this so well. Congrats for finishing your shopping early!
Enjoy!
XX, Elle

I can so relate to almost all of these - especially the awkward. I can't relate to the winning & the Hobbit movie though - congrats on the win!!! And I think we'll send the hubbie and son to the movie and my daughter and I will use the time to catch the after holiday sales. Close tie as to who'll have more fun!
