awkward and awesome Thursdays

(mr. taylor circa 1992)

awkward
- the fact i had the same outfit as mr. taylor growing up. that's what you get having seven brothers, a lot of hand me downs and a temporary loss of estrogen. oh, and my mullet for 3 years didn't help either.
- smiling at someone as they leave the bathroom stall, only to turn that smile into a look of disgust as said person walks out without washing their hands. come on people, you should know to at least pretend to wash your hands in public!
- having a nice hang out session with people, only to get home and notice that you have a nice, juicy booger hanging out of your nose, and you think to yourself, how long has that been there?
- waking up in the morning to realizing that you just cuddled with your teddy bear instead of your husband all night. "23-year-old married problems!!!" (said in deena and snooki, meatball voice)
- going out to a celebratory dinner and end up spending an hour talking about future baby names. that's what happens when you see your hubs playing with a baby all during church. your ovaries start dancing.

awesome
- mr. taylor showing me this video, and then exclaiming that she is me. when it comes to animals, i cry over everything. so perfect! plus, i love ellen!
- coming into the living room and seeing the mister blasting yesterday's playlist and free styling to selena gomez. i'm not making this up.
- the creamery on 9th east officially having the best ice cream. in DIRE need of this right about now.
- apartment hunting. i love just planning this next adventure with my best friend and partner in crime.
- sitting down and watching the bachelor over dinner with my mister. i love his little commentary too. right now his favorites are kacie b and emily. and whenever courtney gets on screen he has to leave the room because he dislikes her so much. good boy.
- having all new sponsors for the month of February. make sure to check them all out on the right sidebar!

  1. Shoot - gotta hate that booger scenario! And I LOVE when I convince the hubs to watch the Bachelor with me - I feel like they don't even realize that they secretly love it too :)

  2. Oh my Gosh I laughed so hard at the video. Especially that bit when Ellen said "let's bring out" and she almost freaked out. And I watched this at work. I had to contain myself but couldn't.

  7. i just hate when people don't wash their hands after the bathroom. it's gross. and to just not do it in public even though you know people are watching is a little weird.

  8. I didn't have a superman costume, but one year (like 5 years ago) my dad got me and my younger siblings Incredible outfits...it was pretty cool...for that Halloween night. I don't think I wore it again though :P That drives me crazy!!!!!! Sometimes my best friend does it like at a park...even though there are sinks! And I just can't stand it. It totally grosses me out. my Papa took pictures of me at a VBS a couple years ago...looking at the pictures a week or so later I realized you could see a booger in nose..."Humiliation? Come on in, make yourself at home!" I think I need some ice cream too...it's an essential of life right? A Bare necessity? Sierra

  13. Don't you wish people would TELL you when you have something on your face or in your teeth?! Man, that's the worst when they don't!!

    Haha, this is awkward & awesome, as always! Love these. You're too cute <3.

  15. The Creamery really does have the best ice cream. I especially like their large serving sizes! haha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. To be fair, I never know it I should tell someone their fly is unzipped or they have a booger. Unless they were like a good friend of course.

    ReplyDelete
  17. HAHAHA! I've done the same thing, where I've been hanging out all day with something in my tooth - and NOBODY said anything! Drives me nuts! I have vowed to ALWAYS tell someone if there is something on their face that shouldn't be there - because I would want them to do the same for me!
    I love it when my hubby watches Bachelor with me too, their commentary is HILARIOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Do not be ashamed of the teddy bear. Haha. I still have mine. Matt has to fight him for night snuggling. The bear doesn't snore.

  19. How funny is that Ellen video?! I have watched it like 5 times! haha, i love it too!

  20. I love when my hubby watches my horrid reality shows with me too! My fave is watching Project Runway with him. I love hearing him critique the clothes / styling. Sometimes I think he likes the shows more than me!

  21. Bahhaa I'm the same with people who don't wash their hands, ew!

  22. ahhh it drives me crazy when people don't tell you have spinach in your teeth or boogers in your nose haha.. i always tell them.. i mean.. they're going to find out when they look in the mirror and think to themselves "WHY DIDN'T SHE TELL ME" and it might be awkward to point it out, but why let them walk around with that all day. it's mean! haha

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha that Kristen Bell video was unreal, that was maybe my favourite thing ever! Love it.

    ReplyDelete

    How sweet that your hubby is sighting off baby names ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha it's even worse when you're at a house and you hear a guy flush and then not wash his hands. EW gross people!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do I smell baby fever?

    I can't stand when people don't wash their hands after using the restroom! Disgusting! Also I love how yall watch the batchelor together, so cute :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. So fun to read :) It's been both awkward and awesome at times learning about the similarities and differences between things that my hubby and I loved/wore/ate/used growing up! Totally relate.

  35. oh. my. gosh... that ellen episode. so funny! she is adorable. i loved watching that. thanks for sharing. tell your hubby that was a good find!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I cry over everything, period, so her Kristen Bell's reaction is totally within the realm of normalcy for me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My husband and I watch The Bachelor together, too!!! It makes it 100% more fun to laugh at the girls with him. :o)

    Our favorites are Kacie B (TN, yay!!!) and Lindzi!

  38. Wren is the EXACT same way, every time Courtney comes on he says, "K seriously if she does that thing with her lips again, I am going to punch her!" HA! It's so true, WHAT THE FRICK DOES THE LIP THING MEAN? Stop it Courtney.

    ReplyDelete
  39. THE best awkwards yet. I hate secret boogers that you aren't aware of. Oh I totally agree you're reaction would be just like Kristen Bell's!

    p.s. I am now officially craving ice cream from the creamery. And hi-chews.....

    ReplyDelete
  40. Loving your list, i can't believe you have 7 brothers, wow!

  43. Bless your heart, 7 brothers??? I can't even imagine. I don't think I've ever had the booger experience but I've definitely come back from being with a group of people and thinking "Dang, have I looked like that the whole time?" The most common one is the smudged mascara or eyeliner under my eyes. Embarrassing. And that picture of your mister is too cute! haha

    ReplyDelete
  44. Apartment hunting is fun!! Good luck ;)

  47. okay, so a mullet is definitely awkward...but a 3 year mullet??!!! that might have to be categorized in 'beyond awkward' ;) ha! i have had a long crazy day {and week for that matter} so, it is nice to end my evening by being entertained by you :) XO brynn

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ha ha I used to be obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I rocked a little boy hair do! That Kristen Bell video cracks me up every time! Hope the apartment hunt goes well!

  50. The bathroom thing always gets to me! I go to our local casino at least a few times a year...and there are way too many people there who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. C'mon...we are touching the same chips, cards, etc. At least rinse 'em quickly! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love that you're discussing baby names! Woohoo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. How adorable. My brother had the exact same Super man jammies. Good times.
