awkward and awesome Thursdays



awkward
- having to take your own pictures while mr. taylor is away on business. so what do i do? pretend like i'm learning with my smart people glasses. thank goodness for self timers, right?
- people attempting to make walking boots sexy by wearing a heel on the other foot. note to self: wearing the heel does not detract from the boot, if anything you draw more attention to yourself while bobbing up and down across campus.
- having random people walk up to you and spark up 10+ minute conversations wanting girl advice. hope i helped out dude...?
- realizing half way through the day that you've been wearing your t-shirt backwards the whole time. i'm stylin'!
- buying a carton of ice cream only to find that two days later it is already empty. fatty over here,
aisle 1.
- having a very old lady at the bank talk loudly on her phone about her doctors appointment. good to know your urine sample came back good.

awesome
- finally getting myself some smart people glasses. yay!
- having allison coming to visit for the weekend. i no longer had to watch hours of television by myself. it was great because i could finally have a two to one vote against mr. taylor in watching the girly movies.
- eating out at cafe rio with friends and family. the best part, allison getting called out by her grandma infront of a large crowd about her boy situation. conversation as follows: "so how's school going allie? how are the boys?" "good. no boys grandma." "oh, i know you allie." *wink wink "what? what's that supposed to mean??" followed by tons of guys staring allison's way.
- watching 'a walk to remember' followed by jamming out loud to the soundtrack, because the movie was just not enough. i know mr. taylor was enjoying himself.
- making ourselves some curry again for dinner. i like when i can make something else other than pasta. i'm putting my big girl pants on in the kitchen now ma!
- being featured over HERE today. go check it out!
- mr. taylor heading to san fransisco this week to find himself a job. perhaps the san fran will be our next home. sadly, this makes me so happy because princess diaries was set here. maybe a grandma i never knew about will come and tell me i'm a princess. oh please, oh please!
- skyping with my BFF back home. i've missed seeing her beautiful face! yeah...we're pretty cool.

  9. Speaking of walking boots and heels... a good friend of mine just competed in the Miss Wisconsin pageant and one of the contestants walked across the stage with a boot and a heal... swimsuit competition and all! I mean I understand she couldn't help it, but I think maybe a flip flop would have been a bit more acceptable, even if it is the Miss Wisconsin pageant!

    Awkward - While in Vegas this past weekend hearing a guy growl at this McDonalds because he was so intoxicated.

    Awesome - Coming back to work after being off for several days to have your blog partner and co-worker, Mendi, do everything for me while I was gone. Coming back was so not stressful! Oh and a Starbucks Iced Green Tea. :-)
