awkward and awesome Thursdays

since you all seemed to favor this "where's waldo" dress so much...
awkward
- mr. taylor left me for a few days to head to the big apple for some prospective jobs. his absence has somehow already led to multiple dreams of justin bieber proposing to me. random and so illegal? yes. but the mr. better hurry up or one of these days the dream version of me will say yes.
- getting dressed in the morning only to turn around and realize that you are matching. hey, nice green shirt, and jeans, and flip flops. explaining the rest of the day, no we did not plan this. 
- getting funny long and possibly important messages on your voicemail for someone obviously NOT you. and that awkward moment of wondering if you should call that person back and tell them they have the wrong number or just let that person miss his lunch meeting. perhaps this is a sign that i should finally make myself a voice message.

awesome
- getting my grubby little hands on The Hunger Games. seriously, such a great book! i couldn't put it down. only when mr. taylor would force me to so i would come to bed. of course i realize i'm about a few years behind on the rest of the world when it comes to its popularity. but hey, better late than never. PLUS, just in time too because the movie comes out march of this coming year. the day before my birthday. mark your calendars. for both if you like ;)
- having the amazing opportunity to have a job interview yesterday. to be honest, just an interview alone has put me in much better spirits about the whole situation. it's letting me know that i am in the right direction and taking action.
- being invited to a beautiful lunch date with friends. yes please!
- stumbling across THIS. please watch. it's long, but trust me it's worth every second. this is truly out of a movie. so brilliant. and don't worry boys, we don't all expect this, but we do expect all the love and passion like this you could ever give.

  1. Ooh love the red and white! Oh and I have wanted to read the Hunger Games for a while (I have to remember to get this for the Kindle!)

    Good luck to the Mr. on his job search! NYC is my hometown so let me know if I can offer suggestions ;)

  3. that is a lovely dress! I love how you've paired it with those amazing pumps! I started reading HG just last week at the behest of many friends. I was really skeptical because my training is in academic literature and I scoff at most YA books. Technically, it's not well-written, but the story is well-paced and very captivating. I totally loves it!

  6. Wow, this dress is amazing. It could transition great from day to night. You look amazing.
    Also, I think it's cute when couples match. Usually you see old couples matching (I'm guessing in the old days that was big) and I always smile.

    Thanks for your comment :)

  11. bringing back the red and white dress! good work! also, getting messages not intended for you is SUPER funny. a while back, someone texted me and obviously had the wrong number, but they were looking for someone named Kirsten! so ironic!

  46. I hate that about voicemails! I also struggle with mass texts. When I reply to a mass text, it always sends my response to everyone in the text, and I usually don't know everyone....so people begin asking who I am and it all turns into this creepy thang! :) Stranger danger time!

    Oh my gosh! Hunger Games! I have only read two of them....but I couldn't put mine down either! Sorry Mr. Taylor left.....booooo!
