Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Awkward
- Getting a muffin for breakfast and requesting that it be heated up. I pay for it and then the muffin boy confirms that I want it to be heated. Yes, I say. So he goes behind the counter to grab it for me and asks again, "Now. You're sure you want this heated up?" 
I don't know that I have anything else to say about this.
- Sitting at a booth for work. All by myself for three hours. UNTIL! Out of nowhere comes this couple who decides to practice their gushy waltz routine right next to me. I'm so lucky sometimes. It got even better when they started playing their song: "Dancing Like Lovers". Here. You need to hear this stuff. So there's an empty hallway, and then there's two dancers gushing away in each others arms ... and then there's me. It was the ultimate drink-your-juice-and-look-the-other-way moment.
- Purchasing my certain food of choice {be it weird or not} and having the check-out girl make grimace faces as she slides it across her scanner. YOU my dear, don't have to drink it. Rude.
- Picking up our sweet pork tacos last week and husband telling me that "hey, you might want to grab a couple extra forks. Ours our dirty" and then proceeding to grab about 20. I'm a bad wife.

Awesome
- Running into my teacher during lunch and having him ask me if I've done the reading assignment yet. I sheepishly say no and he says "yea ... me neither. Probably won't."
- Husband sitting next to me on the couch, establishing my new email account and basically organizing my whole life. His newest thing is, "sure thing boss-lady". I'm hoping this one sticks.
- The sun staying out all the way till after 7. It's spring!
- Pretty much only 2 weeks till school's out. Half of me wants to pee my pants and the other half wants to run around in no pants. In celebration of course.
- Um. I'm on A Cup of Jo today. I also just did a I'm-so-happy-I-could-seriously-just-die-but-then-still-grow-wings-and-fly-away dance right on top of the cafeteria table. It's too bad you missed it.

That's all. Link up here! This is my favorite day because of you.

You are too funny! I totally hate awkward gushy people and people who judge what I buy. I hope boss-lady sticks too, I like the ring of that!

Great outfit as always, have a happy Thursday!

Maybe the boy thinks microwaves will kill your muffin and give you cancer. that's what my mum thinks

Great outfit today Sydney! That pop of red in the necklace really makes it.

As for A&A.... definitely AWESOME today. WTH, muffin boy?? Nuke the damn thing and shut up!!! And weird waltzing couple? Truly awkward. That would happen to me. And I would leave. ;) Hope you have a great day pretty girl!!

Cori said...

I love these posts!! Too funny, and LOVE your outfit!! The red necklace is amazing!! It really stands out! :D

milk tea + polkadots said...

Love the pop of red. I have a very similar black/white striped sweater from f21 that I wore with a black blazer. Hehe. To add a touch of color to the outfit, I painted my nails red. :) I think I like your statement necklace though!

PS..I love it when the sun stays out past 5pm too. It makes it feel like it's still early out. This is why my fav season is spring! If only this 30 deg weather would go away...

Steph Romney said...

Love this outfit. But I love all of your outfits!

I really dislike when people judge what food I'm buying... they don't have to eat it, now, do they?

I'm going to start my very own Awkward and Awesome Thursday! I'm trying to work out how to get a category perma-link to those entries! :)

Your blog inspires me!! Keep on keepin' on! :)

Chris Tani and Princess Brielle said...

Did that food of choice happen to be Naked green machine? Because I get grimaces when I buy that as well. Great outfit! <3

London said...

The dancing couple made me laugh. Been there before, but did not have any juice to distract me from the craziness going on right in front of me.

Christine said...

I love A&A Thursdays! They rock.

My kids frequently respond "Yes Sir Mother" and it gives me a perverse sort of joy.

Congratulations on school being almost over! What an amazing accomplishment!

I'm totally stoked that it's spring too! I love that it's staying light longer but I keep staying up an hour later than I should... Which has been resulting in some pretty tired mornings!

Love the necklace. :)

ryann2 said...

Totally LOVE the shoes, and now I have to know what disgusting to the checker drink you like. :) Muffins should also be warm, what was wrong with that boy?

the Alton clan said...

I couldn't listen to the whole song.....hahaha but the dancing couple story was pretty funny. love the necklace too!

becca b said...

one time i asked for a pizza with lots of tomatoes & basil on top--the waiter gave me a look, said ok, and then later came back to ask if i was sure. a pizza place that doesn't know what a margarita pizza is? are ya kidding? so you can know it's them---not you that's ridiculous. also, we know each other! we both lived at stonebrook for a little while! someone totally unrelated showed me your blog and it's so rad! great job for being a superstar.

christina of profresh style said...

Totally adorable and hilarious for your awkward moments. That whole "heating-up-situation" happens to me ALL THE TIME. I think most kids don't realize I like warm pastries, right? right.

You in a bun is totally cute too. You've got the face to pull it off!<3

LuLu said...

I think your awesome moments are hilarious. Didn't it make you want to ask the muffin boy how he'd like you to have your bagel since he apparently didn't want you to heat it up?

A Candid Life

Sydney said...

Oh the greatness of simple outfits! About the muffin, I feel like that happens EVERY SINGLE TIME I go in and get coffee at the same exact place. I order the same exact drink on the same exact drink and they have to triple check the correctness of the drink... good gracious people. I'm a woman. I know what I want.

The shoes are just amazing. Not to meantion that a black and red combo can't be beat (I am a UGA fan though!). I am just glad my college team has colors that go well together, that I like and that look good on me.
