awkward and awesome Thursdays

awkward
- so mr. taylor and i were craving a little ice cream a few days back. nothing can come in the way of me and my ice cream. so late into the night we headed to the grocery store (pajamas and all). as we got up to the counter i pulled out my wallet full of change. yes, apparently i have become one of those homely women who look like slobs and take forever in the checkout line counting up those pennies. to top it off, mr. taylor walked away from me pretending like he didn't know me. thanks a lot mr. taylor...
- family dinners where something funny happens resulting in me spitting my drink back into my cup and no one else seeming to notice the said funny thing. that and then you continue giggling while trying to cover it up with a smile. please, SOMEONE had to have thought it was funny besides me. excuse my lack of table manners.
- realizing that you've watched enough TV when you realize that you've finished two seasons of Gossip Girl within a 5 day span. i'm not sure if this is more borderline pathetic than awkward. let's just hope that job interview pulls through. keep your fingers crossed ladies. i should be hearing back the first of the month!
- forgetting to change out of my grunge t-shirt before our intermural soccer game and show up with a bright pink neon peter pan shirt. yeah, that happened...

awesome
- having a wrestling match with the hubs for 20 minutes over who was going to make the mac and cheese for lunch. neck chops, spitting, tripping, and slow motion high kicks and punches were all involved. can you feel the love?
- being featured over on European magazine's, This Is Jane Wayne. so honored!!
- and being featured over HERE on ashley's lovely blog! make sure to go and check out this awesome questionnaire she set up for me!
- being 4 more away from 400! who knows, i may actually reach my new years goal of having 500 followers by the time the bells ring in 2012! let's make this happen by spreading the word!!! :)
- sneaking in and catching mr. taylor doing what he loves to do most to blow off steam with all this homework he has piling up. poor guy's still getting over his little cold.

disclaimer: mr. taylor was mortified that i even put this video up, so we compromised that instead of taking it down i explain the following:
1. he was sick while this was filmed
2. he doesn't know all the words to this song
&
3. he was just messing around. this wasn't a good reflection of his guitar abilities.....although i think it is adorable.

p.s. don't forget you can still sign up for the awesome giveaway i set up on Tuesday. polls close tomorrow morning!

  1. I think showing up with a bright pink neon peter pan shirt probably only made you cooler :p

  2. I think your Awesome and Awkward Thursdays are my favorite posts. Your life is so entertaining!

    Isn't it sooo hard to catch Eric on video playing guitar? Growing up I tried all the time but he would always flip out if he caught me.

Mads and I have been faithful followers since the beginning. Granted, the plot line is getting really stupid this season, but we can't stop watching it, and we probably never will. If anything, we watch it for the clothes! And Nate. And Chuck. And Dan. what?
