AWKWARD AND AWESOME THURSDAY!

Awkward
- Sitting through an extremely cheesy made-for-TV Christmas movie that makes Hallmark movies look like blockbuster hits! Why do I do this to myself?
- This conversation:
          Mom: [Whispering] "Tanya, your gift arrived. It's sitting behind the couch in the living room".
          Tanya: "Why are you whispering? Oh, the gift I ordered?"
          Mom: [Whispering] "Shh, Eric's in the other room."
          Tanya: "Oh, it's just something I bought myself. You know, because I'm thoughtful like that."
- That time you're cuddling on the couch and realize that a giant spider is crawling up your husband. This is quickly followed by the hubby screaming, quickly flailing his arms around to get the spider off and then jumping onto the coffee table... It's in these cases that we're all reminded that the women wear the pants.

Awesome
- Last nights episode of Modern Family.
- Boy Meets World is coming out with a sequel people! Cory + Topanga = 4ever!
- Many of our neighbors celebrated a beautiful holiday called Diwali - Festival of Lights a few weeks back. It was so incredible to be able to drive around with Eric and see all of the houses lit up and families outside lighting sparklers together. So serene.
- Finally seeing Argo in theatres. I have never seen a more moving and emotional film. By the end I wanted to cry due to so many mixed emotions of what all happened in those two hours. If you haven't seen this movie yet I highly recommend it!
- What better way to cheer yourself up than eating a pumpkin shake while driving around looking at lights and listening to Christmas music.
- Getting all of our holiday shopping done early. Now if only these next few weeks would hurry up so I can give everyone their presents! Eeee!!
- Family and friends coming into town.
- Stuffing and pumpkin pie leftovers.
- This giveaway. Don't forget to sign up, it closes tomorrow morning! Good luck! ::winks::

  1. Hey, my husband hates spiders too! Guess who usually has to get rid of them? Me. The women definitely wear the pants.

    And I couldn't be more excited about the Boy Meets World sequel. Thanks for reminding me. I hope it doesn't disappoint!

    Love your blog, as usual.

    LOL @ moms trying to be secretive in general.

  17. Oh man, I can hardly stand hallmark movies! (Although once in a while, when I'm in the right mood, they are strangely charming) :P I didn't know TV movies got worse than that!

    ReplyDelete
  18. i missed these posts so am really happy they are back.

    and eric's reaction to the spider was calm compared to mine.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lol!!! Cute post TJ! I hate spiders! I would have been screaming too!

  20. totally agree about Argo. SO GOOD. I was a little skeptical bc of Ben Affleck, but it was such a great movie - he surprised me. def two thumbs up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. hey, thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comment :) i'm following your blog now.
    why is it that guys are so much more afraid of spiders than we girls are?? every guy i have ever dated is terrified of them but if i see one, i'll just pick him up and put him out the window!!

    p.s. What's wrong with cut off shorts?! haha.

  38. Argo was so, so good. And I get sucked into horrible movies too. For some reason, the SyFy channel is especially dangerous for me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm so excited about Boy Meets World, too! And I also thought Argo was amazing.

  44. I can't even watch Hallmark movies (minus the Love Comes Softly and Sarah Plain and Tall series'), so I can only imagine the awkwardness that was the movie you watched!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yup. I raised my boy to not be afraid of his feminine side.

    ReplyDelete
  46. YAY for Corey and Topanga being a mommy & daddy! So excited it's not even funny.

  47. Women for sure wear the pants, except when it comes to spiders. I would've done the same thing haha. I can't believe you're done with holiday shopping already. Is it horrible that I haven't even started?....

    ReplyDelete
  48. Aaa I never know where to start with these posts there are so many things I love!! 1. So jealous your shopping is done. 2. I want a pumpkin pie shake... like now. 3. Spiders and boys. Yes. OMG yes. 4. Boy Meets World reunion?!?!?!

    Okay and last I am so happy to be back for your updates -- I love them like crazy! And I read your last post and I love it even more... I feel the same way all the time and if you ever need someone to sympathize on the baby issue believe me, I'm with you 110 percent. Hang in there and keep doing what you do because it is SO amazing and you are crazy gorgeous and I know it's impossible to believe (because I'm there too, all the time) but you have nothing to worry about.

  58. I buy myself presents all the time...once I bought this diamond and pearl necklace and everyone was saying how lovely it was, I would respond "ohh, this...it was a gift" :) "from Patrick?" "umm, no, from me"

    Diwali is one of my favourite holidays especially when celebrate in Fiji or in India. It's just sooo much fun! xoxox

  73. "- Sitting through an extremely cheesy made-for-TV Christmas movie that makes Hallmark movies look like blockbuster hits! Why do I do this to myself?"

    Totally laughed at this. I am watching an ABC family one on hulu and oh boy, it is cheesy but I guess it could be worse. It is called the 12 Dates of Christmas. You should really watch it ;)
