awkward and awesome Thursdays

{st. maarten, honeymoon, mr. taylor)


awkward
- the image above
- running into everyone and their mom at the mall while mr. taylor and i wore our amazing matching sweaters. "oh hi, yes, i haven't seen you in 5 year. and yes, we are wearing matching nutcracker sweaters for santa. thank you for noticing."
- oh, and speaking of those matching sweaters, mr. taylor was definitely sporting my mom's nutcracker sweater for three days straight.
- eating an entire plate of cookies in t-minus 10 minutes. i think my mouth literally inhaled the plate, i'm not quite sure.
- going out to dinner for my brothers birthday celebration and realizing that an old co-worker is now waiting on my table. right out of a movie, the following conversation goes as follower:
me: (whispering into the hubs ear) oh gosh, i used to work with her at ruby's diner. please don't recognize me, please don't recognize me, please don't recognize me.
girl: tanya?
me: oh hiiiiiiiii...


awesome
- being home for the holidays. i spent the day yesterday enjoying a three hour lunch date with one of my childhood bff's and her new baby, and then having a two hour play date with the three children i used to nanny and their amazing mom who i consider my sister. honestly, she's amazing. and may or may not have bribed me to move back home to work for her again. love!
- being home for the holidays and being able to eat free food i honestly have gained 7 pounds since being home. i keep telling myself i'm joining a gym when i get back home....yeah.
- hanging out with this girl while being home. she's pretty awesome. plus, with her around i get to watch all the chick flicks i want.
- driving around and seeing all the pretty christmas lights. of course, i'm saving the best for christmas eve! can't wait to share on instagram!
- holiday guest posts, like this one.
- reaching 600 followers! i can't believe it, you all are rockstars!

  3. I am dying over that picture. The moment out of a movie? Just had one of those last night with a girl I went to high school with...she dated the missionary I'm (sort of) writing now and I was with my friend at the mall and she was with her boyfriend. I told my friend that I hoped she didn't recognize me and then she came up to me and gave me the MOST awkward hug and greeting of my life. Loved the Christmas sweaters too. You are just too cute :)

  12. Haha I am cracking up about those Christmas sweaters. Also awkward: when you want to make a joke about someone's Christmas sweater, but what if they think it's just a normal sweater?
