awkward and awesome thursday!

Thursday, August 30

 Pants: c/o Lulu's, Top: Old Navy, Watch: Urban Outfitters, Bag: NastyGal
Awkward:
- How long I can spend in the men's deodorant aisle, killing my brains cells while searching for the one. I believe in destiny and fate and sayings like "we were meant to be together" when it comes to that stuff. I don't know why I don't feel the same about picking out my own deodorant. I guess it's just that settling on MATTERHORN -  FOR ARMPITS OF ICE, WIND AND FREEDOM is just a little bit more satisfying than  fresh cucumber
- Realizing that there's another Tyson in my phone contacts - a guy from a class project back in college - right AFTER I text him to "bring toilet paper". Only mildly horrifying.
- Any kind of general anesthesia. As an advocate for truly embarrassing moments, I highly recommend it for everyone.
- Relaxing my forearm onto the back of the seat and instead dropping it onto the back of a woman's head. I felt so bad and apologized a million times, but the awkwardness still prevailed. Like a neon sign flashing in the air above us: YOU SMACKED HER GOOD. NOW SIT TOGETHER IN SILENCE AND FEEL WEIRD ABOUT IT.
- Self check-out stands. Don't ever get behind me in one of those things. I'm tellin' you, I have a GIFT for finding that one special item that won't scan. Or like 10 of them.

Awesome:
- I can totally fly with these.
- Picking up squeaky toys, books and wooden blocks all over my living room at the end of every day. It's such a surreal 'I'm a mom' moment and weirdly, it makes me totally happy.
- A cup of water accidentally dropped on me by a sweet airline stewardess. It's just so good to be on the other side of the awkward sometimes.
- A little cheesecake party with friends tonight.
- When we both pop awake at 5:50 cause we hear Everett turn his music machine on in his crib. I always expect him to let us know that he's awake, but he just lays back down and listens to it. It's the most precious thing, I just die every morning.

I would of thought that Tyson isn't Tyson in the memory of the phone...

A nickname like pumpkin or love or honey would be helpful the next time.

I have to say, I've missed these A&A Thursdays! My favorite part of today's "Now sit in silence and feel weird about it." Thanks for the smiles today!

Renee said...

Such a great everyday outfit! Love those pants. And I know the feeling of hitting someone sitting near you. I was once at a broadway show and kicked the woman in front of me in the head. Not good.
Love you're blog!

You ALWAYS know how to make a plain gray t-shirt look sooo stinkin' cute! I can't seem to ever pull this off (or at least, I don't feel like I'm pulling it off) but you're definitely the plain T master!

Love the pants. Do you live down by GMU? As creepy as that might sound, my husband is in grad school on campus and I recognize those building signs anywhere :) We're not that far from each other!
