Awkward and Awesome

Maxi Dress made into maxi skrit: CC California; Tank top: BCBG; Jean Jacket: C&V Jeans; Clutch: Tommy Bahamas
Awkward:
-Trying on clothes in a woman's dressing room and hearing a males voice in the room next to me holler at the sales clerk, "Does this floral dress come in any other sizes?  It just doesn't fit me."
-Standing behind a man at the Post Office who was sporting a serious spray tan, a neon yellow crop top, fanny pack, glasses with a mirror projecting off of the side of his frame, and shorts that showed waaaay more than anyone was asking for, if you know what I mean.  Let's keep it in the pants sir.  Seriously, I missed the boat on snapping a camera pic of this to evidence just how ridic this was.
-Saying hello to someone at the gym and then immediately walking into a glass wall.  That'll make an impression.  Seriously though, what is the point of a glass wall?  Are they there just to make girls like me look entirely clumsy?

Awesome:
-Our new house.
-Our new king sized bed, king sized pillow, and stone blue Egyptian cotton sheets with 500 thread count we received yesterday.  Call me Kate Middleton because sleeping has never felt like such royalty.
-Doggy doors.  Now I just need to figure out how to get our little booger to use it.
-French fries.  I don't care how bad you are for me.  I will eat you all day long.
-Memorial Day weekend.  Hence, three day weekend.  Hence, it is now officially fashionably acceptably OK to wear white pants.
-My UrbanMinx Juicy Couture giveaway.  Don't forget to enter!

Rachael said...

You missed a good Kodak moment with that guy! Although it may have been hard to take a picture of his outfit and not seem obvious...
Yeah for a King size bed! Once, I spent the night at my sister's place, and we shared the same bed, and first I thought it'd be crowded, then I realized it was a Queen, and not a Twin(which we've had all our lives) and there was more room!
Totally agree with you on the French Fries! Just seeing the words, 'French Fries' makes me want one.

LV said...

Throw little booger out the puppy door a few times, in and out. Then sit and call him with treats. I got little Louie to start using it, and he's only nine weeks! It's a GODSEND.

undomestic chica said...

Your legs look 10 feet long in those pics, I'm a little jealous.

Tucker said...
