Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, March 3

Photobucket
Shoes: c/o Blowfish Shoe, Jacket: c/o YesStyle
Awkward:
- This is the only picture I got before my tripod nearly fell over and I almost died. Tripods are annoying. And so are outfit pictures without a husband. Sorry friends - better luck tomorrow.
- When I push my bangs back with my hair still down - instant mullet. It's like a dream come true.
- Meaning to text Husband and tweeting instead. So just in case you were wondering ... No, I will not be calling you baby and telling you to come hither anytime in the near future. Unless you liked it. But probably not even then.
- When you're in the bathroom and the automatic sensor lights turn off after like 5 seconds. But you're in there with someone else. So you just sit there together in separate stalls... quiet... in the dark...
- Trying to have a professional conversation over the phone while hiccuping. Go ahead sir. Try and take me seriously.
- Having the fix-it man interrupt my coffee-table dinner and Oprah special {it's a glamorous life I lead} to fix our heating vent. I sat and ate. And he bent over and tried to make small talk. I saw a little bit of his bum.
Awesome:
- Having to turn on the AC in my car for the first time
- Husband reaching to hold my hand right before falling asleep. Somehow it was better than cuddling.
- Getting an email from YOU Natalie Fielding! Laughed. My. Head. Off.
- Hearing about Husband's excitement filled days. Happiness!
- Actually enjoying a little bit of this quiet time
- Little April vacay: BOOKED.

Happy Thursday loves! Link up here

oooh april vacation and ac in the car...warmer days make me smile!

Maria said...

So I was thinking if you happened to be walking by me yesterday in the Walmart parking lot maybe I could have made your awkward list today. You would have said something like,

"Enjoying my trip to Walmart until returning to the parking lot and parked next to me are three screaming children and the crazy mother changing one nasty #2 diaper in the front seat of her soccer mom mini van".

Yeah, it was a blowout and I felt AWKWARD! (There were two college girls getting into their car next to me and this is what made me think of your list :)

Olivia said...

It's still snowy over there?! Yikes! Talk about awkward haha :)

Anna said...

I am so envious of your ability to be adorable 24/7. Sorry your hubs isn't available to take your pictures! I spy a remote! Haha. I'm bad at hiding mine too, but Boyfriend doesn't have natural photography abilities like your man does, so I usually go it alone.

Ruby Girl said...

I dream about a tripod. The days when my hubby isn't avail, I use a variety of methods: microwave stand, step ladder, ironing board (i'd recommend this one, generally the perfect height), all usually with a few boxes stacked on top :)

ag. said...

That may be the only picture you got but you're still freakin adorable and gorgeous! Oh to be so photogenic...!

Sist and Sist said...

i love the ombre hair! you are adorable!

Katherine Michael said...

Oh my word! I laughed out loud about the bathroom in the dark thing! Hilarious!

carlotta said...

your awkward and awesome posts are pretty much my favorite. hilarious. i would die if i were sitting in a dark bathroom with someone else...eek.
and your outfit is so adorable! *you're* adorable ;)

CessOviedo said...

Oh my! Glad camera is safe, those tripods can be really meanies! ... I so agree with the little chat with the repairman, it's the most awkward situation, like what do I say to this man? ... Have a lovely day, you looked beautiful!

Looks like it is freeezing there... :)

Katie Ann said...

Your jacket seems warm and cozy.
Your hair looks darling.
And you are lovely.
...even with a mullet, I bet! :)

Sidewalk Ready said...

This might be my favorite awkward and awesome Thursday yet ... the bathroom stall one totally killed me.

katou said...

This outfit looks so comfy love it and i'm struggling every day to take decent pictures without the man.

The Closet Shopper said...

Your awkward moments were hilarious. Your awesome ones warmed my heart. Especially the husband touching your hand before falling asleep.

My husband says he can't fall asleep unless he's touching me. aww. He's also said before falling asleep, "This is my favorite and least favorite time of the day. My favorite because I get to hold you, my least favorite because I fall asleep so fast I don't get to enjoy it for long." Swoon!

xo,
Tracy

Gabby / Gypsy*Diaries said...

It's hard to take pictures on our own isnt it???

http://gypsy-diaries.blogspot.com

P.S; I bet you'd look gorgeous with the feather House of Harlow ring I'm giving away on my blog now! :D

Naomi. said...

Love the outfit and the hair. Oh and the hiccups = so annoying :) .

ellie said...

I've so totally done the hiccup on a business phone call one before. It's classic and rediculously embarassing all at the same time...

Kayla said...

You're the original and still my favorite of all the awkward and awesome posts. Don't you have when maintenance interrupts your day? It's like all you want is them to show up but they do at the exact wrong time.

Aw you're so adorable! :)
Love your outfit and your post was hilarious, tripods should go die in a hole :D

Heather said...

hahaha! i laughed so hard at the fix-it man part. and then read it to my sister. and my mom. lol!

Sydney said...

Cute picture! Despite your rebellious tri-pod!
Another awkward thing to do with bathrooms: When you're in there, you're out of toilet paper and you sheepishly reach under the stall and wave your hand around a bit "Excuse me? I seem to be out of toilet paper, could you pass me some, please?" And they are quiet for a second because a hand is talking to them under the stall, then they pass you toilet paper and you say thank you and they flush and run out of the bathroom. OH YES.

Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

Totally jealous that you got to put the air conditioning on in the car. Spring, where are you?

Lakin McCarthy said...

LOVE the coat! The fur adds a wilderness touch. This outfit is inspiring. It as a west coast vibe.

Always, Lakin

Haley K said...

I just have to let you know your Awkward and Awesomes (along with others who've joined you) make me so happy :) I LOVE how you put a positive and comedic spin on not-so-pleasant happenings. A few of your "awkwards" had me laughing out loud! (ie. lights out in the bathroom & hiccups on the phone) And i totally had to turn the AC on my car the other day too!!! oh how i love the sun when it gets my car roastin! ;)

sorry for the novel. happy friday eve!

Fashionista* said...

Lovely outfit

Rachael said...

I like your jacket. Looks warm.
I've never thought of the 'instant mullet' before! If that's true, I've had a mullet since I was a kid! Haha.

Jessica said...

You're so funny!

Love this, and the H holding your hand while falling asleep-- totally turned me into mush!

Fran said...

Too funny - the sitting in the dark, in the bathroom... so true. Incredibly awkward.

iitscatherine said...

Love the jacket!

My Heart Blogged said...

Sorry about your tripod mishap. I use my ladder in my back yard when my boyfriend can't take photos. I'm classy like that.

Kenzie said...

I had an interesting "maintenance man fixing my heat" incident also. Just way too much info. I also really didn't need to know that the 50 year old guy fixing my heat was a bachelor. Not too interested. Sorry bud.

Brittany Shore said...

Ok...so I have to ask, the bathroom with the sensor lights didn't happen to be the one on the bottom floor in the Spori did it? Because I'm pretty sure that that has happened to me only a million times!

megannielsen said...

hehe i know! I hate remote photos without hte hubby. they suck. At least you look good doing it!!

Jenni said...

I love the awkward moment with the lights in the bathroom. I recently had a similar experience except the lights didn't come on so I was just standing in the middle of a dark bathroom. What do you do?!
