Awkward + Awesome + Smoothie

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 :)

This was a funny post! I laughed obviously about the curling iron, but also about the lawn mower! That is SOOOOO something I do! I can never get the dang thing to start. Last summer I pulled a shoulder muscle and ever since then my husband won't let me start up the mower. Haha! Sounds like maybe I need to do some kick boxing like you or something to get my arms a bit stronger ;-)

Lovely Little Rants

Sophie said...

haha love that a little 12 yr old asked you about your neck. thats hilarious! and your smoothie looks so so so good. im going to go check it on megans blog! x

Britney said...

hahaha I have burning-my-neck-from-a-curling-iron stories. except they really were burns. for some reason I always had a boyfriend when they happened too, so no one believed me. that smoothie looks DIVINE--you health-nut. Definitely will have to try that. I've done almond and soy milk, but never coconut. Guess I'll have to try it! And I've totally done the empty pastry box. It's always awkward when I don't even know what it was either. "It was the really good looking one."
p.s. sry for the novel.
