Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, March 31

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Shoes: Michael Kors, Skirt: Thrifted, Belt: Thrifted, Top: Gift from the Hussy. Because her ta-ta's are more fabulous than mine. 
Awkward: 
- Attending a very nice Grad Night with husband and trying very hard to listen to a very nice musical number, but getting very distracted by the singer's very wobbly and overly-vibratoed Adam's Apple. That thing could DANCE man.   
- Jammin to my washing machine. I swear I could hear drums AND a base in last night's performance.
- Slaving away over the toilet for I-kid-you-not 20 minutes, plunging my little heart out ... when finally I got so fed up that I angrily texted husband that if HE'S the one whose feeling fabulous enough plug UP the toilet, then HE'S the one who gets the fabulous job of UNplugging it. He came home later and did it in 5 seconds flat. Fire shot from my eyes and our toilet suffered a tragic death another 5 seconds later. Why do all of our appliances love him more?
- I WAS going to say having Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup for breakfast, but I guess everyone on Twitter thinks that's awesome. I joined the club.
- That daggum wind we've been having. Not cool for outfit pictures. Chicago: I dare you to live in Rexburg for a WEEK. Actutally, let's make it interesting. I DOUBLE DOG dare you. Now doesn't that just scare your pants off.
Awesome:
- Husband saying I love you out of the blue yesterday. Sometimes that's just so nice -- So say I love you today people. For no reason.You might just get extra kisses
- Every single outfit in the newest JCrew catalog that I will be copying from now until I die.
- The two books I ordered in the mail the other day that will be VERY nice to read on our little vacay.
- My visiting teachers bringing me homemade banana bread on Sunday. People are so nice.
- That husband is now comfortable enough behind the camera to direct me during the shoots. "Turn around and let me see that tushie. OK now shake it!" We always try to keep things very professional.
- Gold and Citrus, the fabulous jewelry company that now has my very large face on their site {eek!} is offering a 30% discount on all orders for readers of The Daybook if you use the coupon code DAYBOOK30 at Checkout. I just got these babies, and I CAN'T WAIT to wear them!

Link up here loves. Last Thursday in March! Thank the stars, the worst is over.

Emily said...

Haha - I NEED to do an Awkward and Awesome post one of these days - you're hilarious! I had a similar toilet sitch last week, but mine involved calling a plumber. My boyfriend couldn't do it either - though it was worth it to see him with an untwisted wire hanger trying to unclog it!! Anywho, love your outfit as always!!

I live in Chicago and it is hardly windy at all! Very deceiving, I know. Apprently it got the name because of politics? I don't know.

Alex and Andrew Sorensen said...

I completely agree with the wind. Its the worst. We tried to take 1 year old pictures of my nephew and I thought he might blow away with the ballons. Who would have thought Rexburg was not just freezing but insanely windy??

These pictures are so cute. I love em.

I love it when my husband says I love you out of the blues as well. I try to do the same for him. He's taught me how to do that. It's a wonderful thing.

Oh, and I rock out to anything that can carry a beat as well.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

Rachael said...

Your post today cracked me up.
Especially about the toilet!! I've had that happen to me. Me, not having broke it, to being the one that has to fix it. AND have to put towels down when the water decided to spill all over the floor.
I also loved your J.Crew comment! That's funny.

Justine said...
