awkward and awesome Thursdays


(you asked for more oldies, i deliver. am i the best or what?)
awkward
- waving at someone that you thought you knew, only to find out that it is DEFINITELY not them. then calling the hubby to explain the story, demonstrating the wave (yes, i am aware that it's not like he could see me through the phone), only to find that you wave at another person to give you a weird look. note to self, never wave at people ever again.
- the downside of smart phones completing or fixing your words for you while texting is that they can't exactly read your mind. as a result you end up sending an inappropriate message to your mother. how one word can change an entire sentence is beyond me.
- having people unfold their deep, lingering health problems they've had in the past to make you feel better about your life. just so you know, it doesn't work. if anything, you still feel sad and just a little grossed out.

awesome
- heading to mr. taylor's family cabin up in sundance. beautiful. so happy for the snow. i might be the only one right now.
- creating an at home movie theatre date night by turning allllll of the lights out, making popcorn and watching cheesy movies cuddled up on the couch. the best.
- LOST and Big Bang Theory marathons. enough said.
- mr. taylor surprising me by turning his alarm off and sleeping in an extra two hours with me to cuddle. he's the best!
- FINALLY recieving my car tabs in the mail the other day. thank you department of licensing. only took 4 phone calls, lost checks and 2 months to finally get to me.
- having plastic sword battles in the grocery store, and then recording it, to make it that much better!
- having sweet convos with blogger friends on twitter. yes, Heather, i'm talking about you! :)
-reminicising on the sweetest music videos of the 90s, like this one!

  16. oh how i LOVED that song, me, my sisters and our friend would always sing that along and dance, it's so so so naive!

    do you believe i never ever did watch a single lost episode??? that outsider i am :P in the other hand, i like big bang theory a lot, but i just don't have cable tv or an unlimited widthband... yeah undeveloped country greetings! Haha, in fact among my friends i might be in the minority who never did have cable tv, so let's say it's not that bad over here :P

    hope all's going better now, thanx for showing up at my blog to say thanxs, that was sweet.

  25. You look great in those photos!

    I know what you mean about smart phones. I can't count how many texts they've "corrected" for me that no longer make sense. But I still love my iPhone to death. :)

  34. I wave to the wrong ppl ALL of the time....I think that i need to get my eyes checked again. Just recently I was in the cafe at work and thought that I saw one of my friends so I walked up to "him" and gave him a side hug....turns out it was not my friend and some weird guy (the weird guy looked just like him from behind).

    Thanks for visiting my blog today!!! Your blog is so cool and now I'm following it (YAY!!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. your outfits morph from sweet to sexual and i adore them all!

    oh and awkward is SO waving at the wrong person. i tend to do that all the time and then play it off like i'm some nice overly friendly person...which i'm not.

    ReplyDelete
  36. love your outfits, specially the 4th one...so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  37. That is a weird thing that people do isn't it..."Well if it makes you feel better...." Um no, your weird story about your misfortunes doesn't make me feel better about mine!

    Ahem.


    Sorry.

    I guess I have some pent up anger that I just released on your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh geez I used to love that b*witched song!

    ReplyDelete
  39. awwwww i loving your red forever 21 dress!

  53. oh gosh i hate the wave at someone you think you know but turns out you don't know them. once i did that but i hugged them. thought it was my friend tiana. mid-hug i realized i had no idea who the person was. it was the most awkward thing of my entire life. lost!!! i LOVE that show. soo much. i should probably re-watch the entire series again it's just THAT good. every other girl may have been obsessed with britney spears, spice girls or destiny's child but i was always a b*witched fan. always.
