awkward and awesome Thursdays





awkward
- so mr. taylor and i decided that we really need our own reality tv show...but seriously. for example, saturday consisted of dance off's to see who had better rhythm, burping contests, and one lengthy chase scene of who got to eat the last of the brownies (resulting in floor burns, chair throwing, and a pain enforced truce). seriously, looking back at this, what is wrong with us?
- being designated photographer for the night during a shindig. you know, like a guy at a fraternity party who is asked by every sorority girl to take her picture with her friends. yeah, you know what i'm talking about. i want to be in the pictures too!!
- eating only dessert for dinner apparently is no longer cool once you pass the age of 5. cue the tummy ache.
- being so awesome while no one is home and decide to take said pictures above. that's right mr. taylor, while you were away i decided to fly to paris, go snorkeling in the bahamas and rocket to the moon. jealous much?

awesome
- recently discovering the british version of The Hills has made me kind of obsessed with saying "bollocks", "brilliant", "babes", "geezer", "smart", "snog", and "blimey". getting my british accent on. good thing mr. taylor is away or he'd be quite annoyed with me at the moment.
- going to red mango for the first time ever. it was perfection! and apparently the only thing my stomach was able to keep down while i suffered through my terrible flu.
- knocking things off my to-do list while the hubs is away. first order of business, watching a movie i have never seen before. so when i posted i was sick on tuesday, a very lovely friend came right over and dropped off some incredibly amazing chick flicks for me to enjoy. thank you anna! and what did i watch first? a lovely movie called Emma starring gweneth paltrow. it took a little while for me to get into the movie, but once i realized it was about a budding romance among very good friends (sound familiar?), i quickly came to love it!
p.s. isn't her artwork incredible?!??
- having mr. taylor's sister come to visit for the holiday season tomorrow. i'm glad she'll be here to keep me company until the hubs arrives back home.
- and lastly, my "thanksgiving-ness" of course! today i feel EXTREMELY grateful for movies and all forms of entertainment that distract us from our daily chores. so many great movies have resulted in fantastic dreams and large forms of my imagination. entertainment has helped me get through these past few months jobless. and without entertainment, i would never be able to aspire to my dream career choice of course! so hats off to you movies, documentaries, music, broadway, novels, and all the like. i simply adore you all!

  2. Is the show you're talking about "Essex"? My roommate recently started watching it, and after I made fun of her for like 2 days, I totally got sucked in. We say bollocks & blimey all the time now.

  6. red mango is my JAM! i love the place so much they know me at both locations near my house in jersey. I thought i could get away with it by alternating locations when i went, but I guess when you go like four times a week...they still think you're obsessed.

  9. Haha, I absolutely love your pictures. And the awkward story about you and mr. taylor! AND, I completely understand what you mean about being the designated photographer. Happens to me alot and I just want to ask if they even realize that despite the fact that I love taking photos, I would also like to be IN them at some point. That's the value I've learned of having other camera-loving friends. haha.

    I did an awkward and awesome post too! http://jessicachronicled.blogspot.com/2011/11/awkward-awesome-thursday.html

  38. Hihi so nice you haven't stayed in bed during sick days - wooow you went to Paris, and to the moon ! hi ;)

    :) Thanks so much for your kind comment! I really loved taking part in the package exchange, that was so much fun. Excitement got SO huge when I sent off my own package (thank you so much, I wanted to make it simple but pretty:) and then received the HUUUUGE box from my pal - jaw dropped.
    * And I think my dentist will appreciate this too.. :D

    Have an awesome weekend there :)
