awkward&awesome

Good morning... things have been pretty awesome and awkward around here... but I guess I wouldn't have it any other way!


**Before I get to my A&A, I have a public service announcement... I love reading your blogs, and sometimes in the comments I can't figure out how to link to your site (I am slightly technologically challenged)... so let's all use this little genius-ness


post: <a href=http://www.myhereandnowlife.com/ ]]> Here&Now</a>
Put your domain name where the purple text is (i.e http://www.myhereandnowlife.com/), and what you want your link to show up as in green (i.e. Here&Now)**


Ok, back to the regularly scheduled programming...
{ What I wore: StyleMint Tangerine Tank // Blank Denim via ModCloth mint jeans (similar) // NineWest wedges }

{ Awesome: }
- Mint jeans... these guys continue to rock my world. Is there a color they don't look amazing with?! (check out more navy + mint inspiration here)

- I have officially become a hoarder of striped tees... and is officially AWESOME!

- My new roommate moved in, and came with a kegerator! Still working on getting some gluten-free cider in there!

- The boyfriend got a motorcycle... I can't lie, he looks pretty smoking hot on that thing! (he still is trying to get me on the back...but I'm letting him log a little time on that bad boy before I hop on)

- No cable or internet in the new place yet (which is why I haven't been able to reply to as many comments, or check out your amazing sites this week!), but it does mean that the boy and I have been playing board games, catching up on some season 1 Entourage and generally nesting.

Don't mind me... just fixing my mullet!

{ Awkward: }
- I have had a iPhone for about 4 years now, and I still fail to hit the "dial" button about 90% of the time... so I stand with my phone to my ear for 5 minutes before realizing that I don't know how to make a phone call! Text messaging is going to be the downfall of me!

- Driving down a busy, street in the heart of Nashville, I almost hit a deer... my country girl survival skills must be rusty, because I freaked out (luckily the deer ran to safety in a nearby park)

- I am such a baby when it comes to anything that closely resembles "working out" (re: skinny fat), so when riding my bike I realize that I am exerting so much effort that the tops of my feet are sweating... that is NOT ok with me!

- Bringing 2 poop bags along on the walk, and the pug lays down 3 deuces... what are we feeding him!? 

- A typical evening at my place has been captured in the video below... I was doing a little rearranging of the bookshelf (have I mentioned how OCD I am about organizing!?), when Doug took it upon himself to defend me against the villainous Piggy Bank
(*Warning: if you are at work, turn off your sound or use headphones, this video contains barking)

How has your week shaped up? 
Any awkward? Awesome? Do share!

  10. Couple things...

    First..your last two posts didn't show up in my dashboard..dumb!  It's happened before where Blogger randomly decides to hide posts from certain blogs then they magically reappear a day or two later.  Weird!

    Second...we can TOTALLY still be friends even though you've never had Jack in the Box.  I'm not even sure how far east the chain goes (there are only 2 in Utah & they're both over 4 hours away from us).  It's my hubby's fave fast food place so we alllllways hit it up when we head to CA.  It's not too shabby as far as fast food goes..

    Thirdly...in response to your comment from my road trip post - it's actually my step-daughter who we went to see & whose bf we met.  Yes, that beautiful girl in the pics is my hubby's 16-year-old daughter.  Here are more posts about her if you're interested - http://cairelchronicles.blogspot.com/search/label/BG.

    Fourth...I was crying-laughing at the video of Doug.  Dogs do the FUNNIEST shit sometimes!  Oh & I'm with ya on not having enough poop bags.  That's the worst. 

    Fifth...LOOOOVE your outfit!! :o)

  11. Oh my goodness, I have been wondering how to make my blog show up as a link! I hope it works....I am SO computer illiterate.

  13. You *almost* got it... you should put what is inside here < http://www.fashionandbeautyfinds.blogspot.com/ > in purple
    The link you posted in there now directs to a unknown page on your site.

  14. Yoshi and I watched that video together, and we died. I love how in the middle of barking at the piggy bank, he looks at you like, "Seriously, are you going to help me or are you just going to video this crap?!"

  15. I love mint jeans! And I especially love it with navy (or coral!)

  17. Ahh, you look adorable! I LOVE this tank!  Um, ok your bf got a motorcycle?? My husband has been trying to convince me that HE NEEDS a motorcycle for years (see, we are twinsies). I told him I refuse to ride with him unless he gets me a pink helmet (duh) and I want one of those seat back things for comfort. Ha. He laughed at me.

  24. We ARE twinsies... I was a little skeptical about him getting a motorcycle, but is is very careful, and he follows all of my "rules"! And I am actually looking forward to hopping on the back after I find the perfect, stylish helmet (le duh!) hehe

  25. Oh my gosh, that is so funny! Torbin (our pug) is also terrified of my piggy bank. Like legit barks and cowers when he sees it. I wonder what it is with them?

  26. I know this post is older, but thank you so much for this tip - I'm going to borrow this for my blog too (if that's okay!) - I recently added Disqus and I totally cannot figure out how to find commenters' blogs, which is way sad because I love checking them out!  Thanks again for this genius workaround - I linked back to your tip here :)
