awkward and awesome Thursdays



awkward
- sitting down in a public place and all you can hear is the person sitting next to you burning a hole in their pants. really lady? you're making it really hard not to laugh right now.
- going and visiting people and encountering that fretted awkward silence. you know, that silence that leaves every single person looking in all different directions, no eye contact, and then the ever so popular echoing cough.
- shaving for the first time in..well details aren't important..and realizing that you can no longer see the water. it's the winter layer. girls, can i get an amen?
- having a dream that miss jay was giving a runway walk demonstration and trampled me. i blame all these ANTM re-runs. i just can't get enough.
- waiting at a red light and accidentally honking the horn, resulting in death stares all around. i swear people, i'm not that jerky person.
- imitating accents. honestly, i'm the worst. i was trying to be all serious and do an australian accent that somehow transformed into an angry irish...gnome?

awesome
- it's march. BIRTHDAY MONTH! it's also the star/golden birthday at that. i'll be turning the ripe old age of 24. yikes.
- being surprised by the hubby with a bouquet of beautiful tulips (my favorite), some yummy chocolates and a red box film of Hugo. whaa? it's not even my birthday, anniversary, or valentine's day. love that man of mine!
- playing pin the tail on the donkey and having nerf gun wars at an adult birthday party is the only way to go.
- having such a sweet "cousin-in-law" (if that even exists), who delivered some nice treats and a recipe for me to try out. obviously the word has spread that i am incapable when it comes to the kitchen ;)
- making grocery store runs and having the husband stop you to catch up on his Bachelor gossip of skankface courtney, and the newly announced preggers, snookie. that's when you know you have a keeper.
- celebrating the bieb's 18th birthday with an awesome playlist and watching Never Say Never. finally ladies, it's acceptable for us to have a little crush (because i know you all do).


and don't forget about the lovely giveaway that closes tomorrow. so hurry on over and enter. 
you know you want to!

  1. When someone burns a hole in their pants--I literally cannot keep a straight face--I know I have the humour of a twelve year old--my father-in-law did it once and literally I thought I was going to explode, while everyone else carried on as normal.

    I hope I understand burning a hole in your pants correctly otherwise that is just a random story just for you :)

  4. I imagine that having miss jay trample you on the runway would be a pretty scary dream. To equal your red light honking; I once accidentally honked the horn while parked in front of the hospital while waiting to pick my dad up after surgery. Yeah death stares all around.

  9. Yeah those silences are awkward, when joe and his father are in the same room that totally happens. They are men of few words when they get together. On a happier note - happy birthday month!!

  23. First of all...ew. The burning a hole in the pants is so gross.
    Secondly...amen to the leg shaving. Well that one might be kinda gross too, but at least a lot of us do it.
    Thirdly...haha my hubby was the one telling me about the prego Snooki too! Priceless.

  28. Ha! I love these posts : ) That dream about Miss J - I'm pretty sure I had a similar one. ANTM is so hardcore. Accents are awesome. I want to keep one up in public and have people think I'm from another country, but I always chicken out. Yay birthdays! And hubby dates : )
