just plain awkward Thursdays



awkward
- that awkward moment you realize you looked like one of the hanson brothers while growing up.
(as documented above)
- having someone search and find my blog by typing: "picture of modern day 6 graders." i know i look young, but this is a little ridiculous....right?
- my attempt at running this week. if you've ever seen that episode of Friends when Phoebe is doing her thing...yeah, it was worse than that.
- the moment you realize that your kick-butt skills at bejeweled are in direct relation to how much time you spend alone. i really need to get some friends.
- having a waitress ask to see my license to make sure it was my birthday so i could get a free piece of pie. since when did restaurants get so serious?! i didn't end up having my license but i still got my free pie. yippee!
- those hours you spend contemplating whether or not to end your text with a period, exclamation point, or nothing at all. #girlproblems
- that awkward moment when you say goodbye to someone and then you both end up walking the same direction. oh hey you, i guess we'll walk silently together and pretend this never happened...

  2. I had an awkward moment waiting for the elevator in my office building. I walked up right at the same time as a repair guy, and there are two elevators. We were standing in the middle waiting for one and making small talk...and then both elevators opened at once!!! We both hesitated because it seemed weird to walk into separate elevators, but also seemed weird to get into the same one. Oh rough moments.

  4. Hahahaha! Oh my gosh, that is too funny! I think alot of us went through the whole "Hanson brother look-alike" phase. I know I did! Unfortunately, I was more comparable to Isaac than I was to Taylor Hanson. (The ugly one... great).

    How do you find what people are searching in order to find your blog?

  7. That awkward moment when you do not know if you should ignore the boss' dog or pet him so he would stop bugging you. LOL

    I love this post and yes you look like a Hanson brother ;)

  8. o my! i have an awkward pic with Tigger at Disney World too! hilarious!

  9. Oh man are you sure we don't have the same life? That awkward say goodbye and then walk the same direction has happened to me TWICE in three days. I am also pretty sure all the cool kids looked like Hanson. I actually went as Isaac in middle school.

  10. haha don't worry, i have some hanson appearances in my old scrapbooks too! it's fine.... we made it look good! and tigger loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh my gosh, I can definitely relate to most of these! Too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  12. HAHAHA. Hanson. That's awesome. Didn't we all though sort of at that age? Also really happy about your pie. That is hilarious though.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hahahahaha the HANSONS! I totally forgot about those guys. I think we all had that stage in our lives ;)

  14. awwww.... love this! and I always thought the hanson bros were more like sisters... they were way too pretty to be boys! so don't worry pretty girl :)

    and omg... I am speedy walker.. so walking behind or alongside someone is so hard for me! I wanna speed right pass em, but don't wanna be rude!

    Happy Thursday!

  15. haha i am dying right now!! I love the picture and everything about this post. pretty sure that awkward moment of saying goodbye but yet walking the same way happened to me yesterday...priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hahahaha, I did the last awkwardness at the grocery the other day. It was awkward anyway because it's that person you recognize but aren't sure how. We ended the short convo with "good to see you"...and walked the same direction, ha! Hanson brother...love it! Mmmmm bop!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Is that Tony the Tiger from Frosted Flakes?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh you do look like Hanson, that made my day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. No worries, I had that exact same outfit.. shoes too. I'm so glad the 90s are over, it was rough on our wardrobes!

  20. Haha I love when you're able to have an entire post about awkwardness of the week. I am EXACTLY the same way! And I hear 'ya about Bejeweled skills, I am a mad fiend at Plants v. Zombies when husband is gone!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mmmbop yeah yeah mmmbop! Hopefully that song is now stuck in your head like mine! haha
    And I have done that awkward goodbye thing too many times count. I always end up saying the same thing too, "Guess we are going to the same way" (awkward laugh).

    ReplyDelete
  22. Mmmmmm bop! That was a good jam, and you look so precious!

    XO,

  23. omgg the picture is so cute haha you look so adorable! omgosh i loved that episode of friends and when she finally convinced jennifer aniston to run that way too!! haha

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love this! Definitely put a smile on my face this morning. Is it bad to admit that I had the Hanson cd when I was younger? Probably. Xo

    ReplyDelete
  25. Equally awkward? When you run into someone at the grocery store multiple times in the same trip... so awkward!

    Love this list, and I totally relate the the text punctuation- I use way too many exclamation points, so sometimes I like to mix is up with a smiley face :)

  26. I laughed all the way through this list!! And really, the waitress asked for your license? get a freakin' life...glad you got your pie...hope it was coconut cream...that's my fave! Thanks for stopping by my blog...it led me to yours! You guys are hysterical!! ;)

  27. Maybe you are a Hanson sister from another mother??! Funny picture.

    And I love that friends episode with phoebe running. I'm sure you did not look that baad.

    Happy belated birthday! Sounds you like you a fabulous birthday! You're 10 yrs younger than me (I feel old). Although sometimes I don't feel that old since I only have one baby so far(which is odd for a 34 yr old mormon!).

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hahaha I'm pretty sure we all looked like a Hanson at some point in our childhood. And I can't believe the waitress asked for your ID!! That's ridiculous. I've never heard of a restaurant....or a bar doing that! haha

  29. hahah just awkward thursday. nice. tomboy tanya! ohhh my goodness. haha walking beside someone after goodbye is easily one of the most awkward moments on earth. And bejeweled? Okay tanya.... we need to fix this as soon as possible....

  36. I'm fairly certain I had that exact same smiley face T-shirt. I think I wore it out, or my mom bleached it on accident and the black trim turned all yucky like. Thanks alot mom. AND are those Airwalks?? *jealous*

    ReplyDelete
  37. i had that exact same smiley face t-shirt.soooo pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think you're a lot cuter than the Hanson brothers though :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. ah! this makes me adore you even more, to know i'm not the only awkward one out there. i thought obsessing over texts stopped once you had your man? alas, i guess not. :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. hahaha I love that someone found your blog that way! And i totally look like Phoebs when I run too! We should go running together so we feel better about ourselves. haha

  41. Just found your blog. I'm laughing so much at this:

    "those hours you spend contemplating whether or not to end your text with a period, exclamation point, or nothing at all. #girlproblems"

    SO true. And it does make a difference.

  58. Haha! That saying goodbye and then walking the same way situation has happened to me so many times! And the silent walk usually ends in yet a second awkward goodbye.

    ReplyDelete
