AWKWARD AND AWESOME FRIDAYS?


It's been forever since I've done one of these (idea from the lovely Sydney of course), and it's a day late but oh well!

Awkward
- Trying to make a phone call, put the phone up to your ear and wait an embarrassingly long amount of time to only look down and see you haven't even dialed the number yet.
- Not only that but realize that you called the wrong number. Twice. To the same person. Sorry to the old man I made get up two times during his nap... literally. He told me, people.
- Walking up to a lady in red while in Target asking her where to find planners, only to find out the hard way that she definitely did not work there. Now if only I could tell you this was the first time this has ever happened. People reeeeeeally need to stop wearing red to Target.
- Laying in bed and the mister starts doing trivia of quotes from Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Maybe this is a sign I need to cut back on the whole reality show bit.
- Doing the "high five" test with the baby SIL for a minute straight. Watching each others elbows does not work. That or we are extremely uncoordinated...

Awesome
- That time the hubster and I saved a trapped bird in our complex stairwell by letting it into our apartment, to fly out our balcony door. Technically this could fall under awkward, but we call it our good deed for the day. *Short video to follow!
- This tribal watch from the lovely Feral Watches. Seriously, I can't get enough of this bad boy as I'm sure all of you can tell from the blog and instagram. Get ready to see this around the site more often people!
- Having a facial night with the mister and little brother. Nose strips and all. I should have documented their faces while they were pulling the strips off. Hilarious amounts of concentration and watery eyes.
- The return of all my favorite shows!!
- Signs of the Fall season. Hello pumpkin patches and corn mazes!
- Getting prepped for the Sundance Film Festival 2013. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about the experience, leave a comment below or email me personally!
- Drum roll please, the winner of last Friday's giveaway was announced. See if you are the winner here, and email me!

  13. I recently had a bird trapped in my kitchen, it was hilarious but not so much once it started flapping all over the place, I was scared it was gonna drop something fresh on me!

    I've just started blogging, come and have a look?

  52. I am so guilty of sometimes wearing red to Target! Whoops!

    ReplyDelete
  53. the watch is amazing!! holy watch envy i have going on right now! ive called the wrong number and talked to the same person twice in a row - quite possibly the most awkward/uncomfortable thing possible!

    ReplyDelete
  54. LOL at that awkward moment in Target! It has happened to me too at stores here, when a person is wearing the same color as the staff of the place. Yikes! :p BTW I love the photos. They're so calming to look at! :)

  59. Oh,man...I am a pumpkin patch and corn maze freak (as in love them, not as in an actual creep) too!! My friend and I had to bust through the corn one year because we were lost for hours. We always liked Craven Farm way up in Snohomish. Which one do you like? Have a great weekend! :) Amanda

  63. Yeah, rocking the boat with Fridays! Stick it to the man TJ! Love your awesome list :) Especially the facial night...and who really wears red T's and kahki's voluntarily? They were just asking for it

    ReplyDelete

  65. "Trying to make a phone call, put the phone up to your ear and wait an embarrassingly long amount of time to only look down and see you haven't even dialed the number yet."

    Haha! It happens to me every time. I can totally relate to this post. =)

  70. One) you are so cute
    Two) I called the wrong phone number THREE times in a row once. Luckily, the lady was incredibly friendly and wasn't able to see how bright red my face was.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can't wait for the bird video! :) Sounds like a fun time. haha

    ReplyDelete
  76. So awkward, I've been the person wearing red that people thought worked at Target. This one woman got mad when I told her I didn't know where something was (I hadn't caught on right away that she thought I worked there, because my shirt was patterned, definitely not solid) and threatened to report me to "my supervisor." Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  77. PS, you look adorable in that photo!

    ReplyDelete
  78. okay, me and the hubs have lived in utah for FOUR years now and have never been to the sundance film festival. pathetic, i know. so, any advice for, like, what to do about that and how to do it? cause i really wanna go. bad.

    ReplyDelete

  82. You can volunteer for the festival?? I didn't know that! How cool!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think I was in the situation with the lady in the red dress around hundred times. each time after I realize that I'm talking to a person who is a customer, I start laughing like a hyena 'cause that's the way I react when I'm embarrassed :O

  84. OMG! Super awkward situation with the red lady at Target. Hahahaha. You are so adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  85. LOVE that top pic of you! So pretty. And I agree, watching each others elbows does NOT work!

    ReplyDelete
  86. nice watch..thanks for stopping by on my blog.xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  87. I've TOTALLY done that to people wearing red in Target. And they somehow get offended, too. I agree: there should be a ban on wearing red anytime you visit that store. But I also sort of want to wear a red polo and khaki pants there one day and just give misleading directions to any and everyone who asks me where soap or Barbie jeeps are because it would be hilarious...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hey, the trick of looking at the elbows for successful high fives doesn't work for me either !

    ReplyDelete
  89. You look lovely! And how funny those awkward stories are!
