Awkward & Awesome Thursday

fallingAwkward:
-Hitting my head REALLY hard against the frame of my car this past weekend. OUCH! I’m pretty sure I gave myself a concussion. Still have a headache after four days. OI!
-Having to log off of my work email, etc in order to print ANYTHING at work. Ugh. #firstworldproblems

Awesome:
-Cuddly socks and sweaters.
-Reading Harry Potter in bed with my sweet husband. He is such an incredible man.
-Unexpected moments with old friends that seem to breathe new life into a friendship. I feel really close to my friend Ashlee right now. =)
-ZooBoo with my nephew and his parents! So much fun… even though I was the oldest person in costume!

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

fall catAwkward:
-All the laundry stacking up at our apt. What my husband does in any given day to go through so many outfits, I will never understand.
-Miscommunications at work. I can’t seem to reach this co-worker. I try to “kill her with kindness” but I find that we continue to have trouble communicating. It’s frustrating…
-Noodles for lunch that leave an odd smell on your clothes.

Awesome:
-Cats and cozy sweaters and hot tea and pumpkin colored things (like pumpkins ;] ).
-Getting the script for a skit at church for the Kids service. It’s so fun!
-Writing at work. I love when it’s writing my own procedures. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy editing, too, but writing is my real passion.
-Audiobooks. They make my drive to and from work each day much more manageable.
-GET MY NEW IPHONE TOMORROW!!! WHOO!!
-AND MY AUNT DONNA IS COMING TO VISIT THIS WEEKEND. <3 She is like a second mother to me and I can’t wait to see her again!

picnic blanket, SewnNatural etsyAwkward:
-Tummy aches and not feeling good in general. Why is the fall such a painful time of the year for me?!

Awesome:
-This picnic blanket from Sewn Natural on Etsy. I LOVE IT!!!
-Books that break your heart. I know that seem like the opposite of awesome, but sometimes I need a little shock, it shows me how alive I am and how good the writing is, if I’m so attached to the story. Being alive is awesome.
-Celebrated our one month of married life this week! =) MITCH AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR A MONTH. <3

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

brilliantAwkward:
-Sinus migraines and food poisoning. Ew. Ew. Ew.
-My husband’s obsession with Downton Abbey… he can’t get enough. It’s way too soap opera-y for me. =P

Awesome:
-Blue Raspberry Twists. I love odd flavored twizzler-esque candy.
-Going to Anderson Orchard last weekend with the Farris kids and some other friends was awesome. We got a whole peck of apples and a container of red raspberries.
-Sleeping in. Man, I live for the weekends!

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

do it nowAwkward:
-Someone ordering you to touch the cow. Pushy children’s book.
-Being without my work laptop for 5 whole workdays. Ouch to productivity.
-When I know more about IT than our IT help desk. UGH!
-My car needs a wash. I STILL have our Just married markings all over it, but it’s rained, so it’s… drippy. Ew.

Awesome:
-My Kanken (which I keep calling my kranken) is on it’s way here!!!! I can’t wait! It’s going to be my traveling office as I will be on the customer site writing procedures every Monday through Wednesday! =)
-Rotisserie is here. I don’t even know how to use this thing, but Mitch is happy and that makes me happy.
-Volunteering for the One Girl Conference was amazing. So cheesy, but I really love volunteering and spending time with Christian women.
-Honeymoon stage… don’t ever leave us! <3

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

fairy taleAwkward:
-Our lack of honeymoon… I know, I’m being spoiled, but I really would have loved to have some time to just enjoy us and be newlyweds. BACK TO WORK WITH US! Ugh…
-Changing your last name is harder than it looks and the Social Security office works really odd hours (re: 8AM to 3:30PM… I work an hour away).
-No photos of the entire family. I got zero photos with Mitch’s mom and dad. Kinda disappointing.

Awesome:
-I MARRIED MY BESTEST BEST FRIEND MITCHEL!!!
-Beautiful preview photo (see above) that our photographer shared with us. I love it. Can’t wait to see the other beauties.
-Baby cuddles with my nephew Blakey. He is always such an angel when we’re around. He saves the bad moods for his momma! ;)
-Staying in our pjs ALL WEEKEND last weekend. We really needed the down time after all the wedding stresses…
-One Girl Conference with my church! Can’t wait to get started making some lip gloss with teen girls and working on the Sole Hope project!

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

what are you wearingAwkward:
-The amount of times this past weekend that I just completely and utterly forgot what I was talking about. I forgot entire conversations in the course of a few minutes. It takes talent to do what I do.
-My body not getting enough sleep lately. It keeps trying to talk me into doing nothing but sleeping after work. The exciting weekend and lack of sleep have my body ready for a break [re: a full week of nothing but sleep].

Awesome:
-My best friend Shelly and her fiance Phil surprising me with a visit this past weekend for our wedding shower!?!?!?! BEST WEEKEND EVER!!!!
-Blackberry wine from Oliver Winery. YUM YUM YUM!
-I GOT A NEW JOB!!! Wowza. Fantastic raise and an exciting new job! I’m super excited to start down this new path. So many changes in the month of August!
-Fantastic dreams about being in a real life Sherlock Holmes situation!? =)
