Awesome & Awkward Thursday! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Awesome & Awkward Thursday!




necklace: c/o Happiness Boutique shirt: gifted (found here) pants: H&M shoes: target

Hi! So today I present something newish. Sydney from The Daybook blog used to do these "awesome and awkward Thursday's" but she hasn't done one for years and I miss them. So here I am, trying to revive the tradition. Because my life is just too awkward not to. 

Awkward:
+Explaining to Jason that guacamoles probably just grow all over the place in Mexico (we're having withdraws) Yes. I called them guacamoles. 

+ Slowing down slightly too soon for a red light,  resulting in a large man in a jeep waving his meaty fist at me for not getting to a red light quicker. I switched lanes and as our cars sat side by side at the red light I stared at him till he stared right back. As soon as we locked eyes, I decided to give him my biggest smile and wave like a maniac as he looked at me even more confused. I guess I thought that if I did something "nice" he would feel bad for waving a fist. HA. (ps I'm really good at revenge, obviously)

+Feeling like I have to reply in novels to simple questions, especially at work.
Candace did you send that letter yesterday? 
Yeah I did, but I sent it via fedex because I couldn't figure out certified mail and I was trying to send it in the cheapest way and then I scheduled ground pickup and then I realized they charge you to pick up so it actually wasn't the cheapest way but it was too late so yeah, I sent the letter. bye.


Awesome:
+My birthday is tomorrow guys. I'll be 24. So it's my golden birthday. And my first married birthday. And Jason has been very very sneaky lately. omgomgomgomg

+Jason is getting a new mac this week because his computer literally makes prehistoric sounds when he uses it. And I finally convinced him to let me say that it's from me to him for our anniversary. #bestwife

+ Getting him something else that he really wants. And trying to make sure not to spill the beans because I usually always do.  My typical  secret gifting attempts: Oh hey if you were to get a snowboarding season pass would you be happy? ok cool, uhh just wondering.

+All the food people bring into my work. Yesterday someone casually brought our office like 15 pounds of fresh cherries and today there were doughnuts and Einstein bagels filling the kitchen. I think I need to make better use of the gym here before I gain like 20 pounds. 

+This shirt. Long story short, my friends dog jumped on me with muddy paws and she lent me this shirt. When I was done being so obsessed with it she just said I could have it. BLESS HER SOUL.

Happy Thursday, may the awkward Gods not shine upon you (too much)

  5. Omg I used to do awkward & awesome posts every Thursday on my blog back when I was a good blogger haha. If you ever get extremely bored, they will provide a good life. I was just thinking how I missed doing awkward & awesome posts!
    I would have laughed so hard to see you do that to the guy at the stoplight! Too funny! Happy early birthday! My 26th is next Wednesday and it'll be my first married birthday too! And yes, you are the best wife ever for getting him that! Haha

  6. Also it's awkward when I don't proofread on my iPhone and have to delete my comment to try to edit it but then my phone spazzes out and won't let me type new text so I have to wing it and make due with what the iPhone wants me to say. Lol

  8. I like what you did to that guy. People hate when they are trying to intimidate you and they can't. Acting happy/excited was a good idea.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I think being a jerk in traffic doesn't make anyone (including the jerk) feel any better. It's pointless to be mean!

    And umm...you can spoil me with a macbook anyday ;)

    And yes my life is just like yours when it comes to answering awkwardly. Liz did you get this done. Well, you see, I did, but I know it looked like I didn't because I was facetiming, but I was on lunch and I did it right after lunch, etc...just a mess..

  17. Okay, first of all, your hair is awesome.

    Also, I am so with you on way over explaining things. I am the worst about going on and on to answer a very simple question.

    And your response to the guy at the red light = total win. I love it! :)

    1. Ahh thank you!! haha you get me! Just a simple question that requires a simple answer and I can't help but elaborate. People that get mad in traffic confuse me cause I'm like have YOU never done something dumb in traffic? come on people! :)

    1. Thank you sooooo much!! Do the A&A segment, i wanna read yours! The problem with certified mail is you have to go to the actual post office to mail it and I had to actually mail it while i was at work, my dilemma!

    I'm the same way, especially at work. I always feel like I have to write novels to explain everything. It's a bad habit of mine and I hate it.
