Awkward and Awesome Friday

Today we say goodbye to January.
Hard to believe the first month of 2014 is gone.
Awkward:
  • The over the top reporting the local weather people did before our "snow storm".  Talk about more hype than outcome....
  • Washing my sweater exactly as directions instructed and still having it shrink.
  • Breaking a 3/4 filled bottle of dill.  Not only was glass everywhere ~ the kitchen smelled like dill for hours.
  • Wondering why I was so cold in my car and then looking down and realizing I never actually turned the heater on.
  • The moment when you realize you don't have a brown thumb, but a black thumb as you look at all the dead plants in your house.
 Awesome:
  • Surprise visit from son2.
  • Seeing the videos and  pictures of my nephews in Louisiana sledding in a laundry basket.  It's a really big deal for Louisiana to get snow!!
  • Finding my lost iPod in a purse I hadn't used for months.
  • It's the last day of my birthday month and I have one more birthday dinner to eat.
  • A good old fashioned snow day!
 
Yes, I decided to brave another look using white. 
 I am happy to report no mishaps this time around.
I love how the winter white just pops with the 
varying shades of purple. 

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

Great white jacket-love it! I had to laugh about your birthday "month". Our daughter in law has one of those, too. Are gifts your love language? Brad and I recently took that quiz and it was quite interesting!

The white is beautiful against the darker plummy purple...love it! And how cute is your dog?!

No fear of fashion said...

I agree, that winter white is a welcome variation on all the black. Nice with the purple/burgundy.
