awkward and awesome Thursdays

- (see above picture) hot.
- i wasn't sure where this should go but i felt it appropriate here. so sunday, after church (and after an amazing nap next to the fire) the hubs gets to working on his homework. 15 minutes later, this conversation goes as follows.
            me - "what are you doing?"
            hubs - (scrolls the computer screen down so the picture doesn't show)
            me - "i saw the picture of justin."
            hubs - "what are YOU doing? are you tweeting about this?"
            me - "nope." (signing onto facebook to message a friend of this occurrence)
            hubs - "fine. i don't care. i'm not ashamed."
...yes, he was reading up on the newest gossip of the biebs and the baby daddy drama. nice.
- another mr. taylor moment (such a funny guy). the other day i was woken up abruptly to the hubs walking in saying this:
            hubs - "tan, i think we shrunk our clothes in the laundry."
            me - "oh no, are you serious?"
            hubs - "yeah, look!" (puts on shirt)
            me - "um, that's because you're wearing my shirt babe..."
-coming up with a list of awkward and awesome's and realizing that all my moments this week involve mr. taylor. i really do need to make friends down here.

- having a great sunday service. seriously, it's like the talks were directed RIGHT at me! love those days.
- although i didn't end up getting the job i had been hoping for, we finally figured out our money situation. with that said, i feel like i can breathe. the worst is sleepless nights worrying about money. but last night i had the most wonderful dream that i was an australian pop star. full star treatment. brilliant.
- kicking butt against the pinata at a birthday party. yes, those are still considered awesome, even at our age. photos of my success can be found HERE.
- starting "thanksgiving-ness" lists this week. i believe it is so important to really take the time and think of something to be ever so grateful for each and every day. 

and speaking of "thanksgiving-ness":
last night i had a skype date with my mom, who had my dog sitting on her lap, holding his paw waving hello to me. i miss my little old man every single second of the day. he was my christmas present almost 11 years ago to the day. best. present. ever. i am grateful that he sat with me through every sad moment, literally licking away my tears. i'm grateful for that wagging tale he has every time i walk into the room. i'm thankful that whenever i am happy and jumping around, he has to jump around. i'm grateful for the responsibilities that he somehow instilled in me (every poop pick-up and all). i kind of love that i'm the only person that you really like to be around. or that whenever seattle gets a bit of sun light shining through on the carpet you always slowly walk over, go around in a circle and plop down on it. i'm kinda, sorta obsessed with every little thing you do. love you little old man!

what are you thankful for today?


  1. Haha this was great (are you doing movember??). All my moments involve my roomates and my roomates only because we just moved to a new town together. It's hard to make friends in a new town. But you're so lovable, it shouldn't be a problem for you.

  2. My dog does that too! He's angel puppy cause he heals me when I'm sad! :) hehe. I love the Mr. Taylor moments! So good.

  3. Seriously your hubs wearing your shirt, hilarious!!!!!

  4. Those awkward moments are hilarious! I wanna know what shirt of yours he thought was his! Haha. And your dog is adorable! I love that last picture!

  5. Haha any chance I get I tweet or FB or even blog about the funny and kinda embarrassing things my hub does and it kinda drives him crazy hahaha..

    I also like that he was wearing your shirt, haha. Poor thing, being all confused. (I have moments like that with my boyfriend, who made up a song about his beard to the tune of "My Girl.") OH MY. haha

  23. Hi friend! Ha I love that you are telling on your husband here. Mine would KILL me! We're in the money woe boat with you- being married to a law student and all. I hope you get the job you're looking for and can breathe easy that you will be taken care of in the meantime! It's amazing what you can live off of (take it from a couple who lived off of babysitting money & a part time job at Dick's Sporting Goods for a year!!)

  24. AWW LOVE!

  48. Ha! The husband and I talk about the biebs drama all the time. We have a bet going... he thinks that it's Bieber's baby and I don't think it is. If he wins, I go hunting with him. If I win, he goes to see Twilight with me! Perfect.

  49. The picture with your dog is so cute!! Love it!
