The beautiful Sydney at The Daybook is hi-larious (especially now that she has funny preggo stories) and I love when she shares her awkward and awesome moments from her week. Today I thought I'd jot mine down too :)
I try to look at the cup half full (emphasis on try) so these awkward-and-awesome's are paired together...
Awkard: Seeing I've reached the bottom of my glass that, just 2 seconds ago, was full of delicious smoothie...and sipping with all my might, yet nothing comes up the straw.
Awesome: Getting invited by Megan over at Second Floor Living to share the recipe of my favorite drink as of late! :) Which just so happens to be the smoothie previously mentioned (and the one in the picture). It's my Very Berry Tropical Smoothie. Go here to see how I make it!!! And while you're there check out her blog...she lives in South Africa (super awesome, right?) and she's got a stellar bucket list. Go. Now. :)
Awkward: On Wednesday I was asked by one of the 12 year-old girls in Young Women's (the youth group I serve with), "Ouch, what happened to your neck??" I answered, "Uuuuuh, oh! It was, um, a burn from my curling iron." Good thing she believed me, eh? ;)
Awesome: It was my 3 year anniversary the day before... ;)
Awkward: Still not having the kitchen finished! Oh the details...it's taking for-ev-er.
Awesome: The fact that it is happening!!! All good things to those who wait :)
Double-awesome: I still don't have a ton of dishes to wash. oh. yes.
Awkward: Getting a weird look from the cashier at Smith's (local grocery store) when I showed her an empty little pastry baggy and told her to add one donut to my purchase...I'm a hungry shopper, okay?
Awesome: That maple bar, that I devoured while grocery shopping, was delish. :)
Awkward: Watching Biggest Loser and wondering, "Where the heck is Rulon???"
Awesome: Watching Biggest Loser and seeing Olivia take it all! She looked AMAZING and so happy :)
Awkward: Not having dinner ready for Adam when he gets home... (the limited choices of sandwiches, salad, and easy mac get really old after a while)
Awesome: Being surprised by super-hubs-Adam when he brought home delicious Chinese take-out!
Awkward: Pulling on the starter-cable-thingy on the lawn mower at least 1,265,529 times before it actually starts.
Awesome: Soaking up a little sun and listening to some good tunes on my ipod while I mowed our front lawn yesterday. I love the sight and smell of a freshly mowed front yard :) and I also love getting a thank-you spank from the hubs.
Awkward: Feeling like I was about to pass out while working out yesterday. yowza.
Awesome: Getting told by the trainer that my form in kick boxing is great :) First time with actual gloves and a bag...loved it!
Awesome: There are just 3 more days 'til Sunday...favorite day of the week :)
