Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 16


When you're talking about someone and they walk in and hear it. 
Let me just put my foot in my mouth...I need no help

We've all got it, don't deny it.
But WHY would God invent such an ugly thing?
Cottage Cheese...blah...


When you know you're better off without someone in your life.  
Even better--when said person is now robbing the cradle. bahahaha

I swear it was probably created by a mega crepper, 
but it's so dang handy when you want to be nosey.
I know, I'm a creeper--but who isn't?

Until next time,

Time to Rest

I just finished a 13 1/2 hour work day, which was preceded by an 12 hour work day.
To say I am exhausted would be the undertatement of the century. 

I wish I could just crash for the next two weeks, but I can't.
Because I have to, somewhere deep within my soul, find the energy and peppiness to teach four nights of VBS.

I just have to make it to Wendnesday...
I think I can, 
I think I can,...

Oh screw it, let's be real, I'm gonna DIE 

Until next time,

Father's Day=Just Another Day to Me...

This blog post will be a little more on the personal side than my usual posts.

This time of year is always bittersweet for me...
My facebook friends start talking about how great their dads are and posting pictures of them and talking about the gifts they are going to purchase; all of this because of a little day known as Father's Day.

Father's Day, although proving to be important to 95% of Americans, means absolutely nothing to me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for those of you who have good dads--I know how valuable they are.

But, truth be told, my sperm donor is scum.
It's not just that he's a bad dad, it's the fact that he's not one at all.
He chose to not have me in his life--he didn't want me.

The only other time that not having a dad hurts is when I watch Father/Daughter dances, because I know I'll never have that.

This isn't to say that I want him in my life, because I don't at all.
If he was to call me right now, I'd hang up on him (after having a panic attack, of course).

Please don't think of this as a pity post--I DESPISE pity and pity parties, 
I just wanted to share my feelings and highlight the fact that I have the best mom in the world!  
She has been my mom, my dad, my best friend, and my rock.  
So, Happy Father's Day, Mom, to the best dad I could ask for!

I guess God decided that since I had such a good mom, I didn't need a dad too ;)

Who Doesn't Need to Pay for a Manicure?

This girl, that's who!!

Oh yeah--I'm good!!

It seems like my hand is awkwadly floating in this photo.
I guess I have the ability to make anything awkward, 
but we already new that :) ha ha

On another note...
Here's what my foot looks like now:

Disgusting, huh?

Note to self: 
walk very cautiously down stairs; 
if you don't they WILL hurt you :(

"And it's two bare feet on the dashboard..."

It's the middle of June and already 107 degrees?

I mean, I love summertime as much as the next person but that's a little too hot for me...especially in June!!

Here's to a scolding hot summer with my sky slider roof open...

Lana Lately

I admit, I have been neglecting my blog and I am ashamed...

It's no excuse, but I have been SUPER busy at work.
Our GM is no longer with us (I know that makes it sound like he's dead, so just to clarify, he is still alive), which means more work for me.  I clocked several hours of overtime this past week--I didn't even have time to breathe.  

It's really weird because the extra work I'm doing now is pretty much PR/Advertising stuff (what my original major was).  I forgot how much I enjoy doing advertising.  I've written commercials, designed ads, dealt with Co-Op funding, and helped plan our One Year Anniversary Celebration.  
So, even though I have been mega stressed this week, I still absolutely love my job.  Possibly, more than ever.

Oh, and my tumble down the stairs was the icing on the cake. lol.
Just to update you, my ankle looks horrible--the swelling and bruising have gone away, leaving what resembles to be a burn.  
Pretty sure I'm going to have a scar to constantly remind me of my lack of grace.  

BTW, if you haven't seen The Hangover 2, go watch it.  I laughed my butt off!

Until next time,

Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 15


Falling down the stairs at work...
in heels...
while carrying a large box full of paperwork and a cupcake box...
while everyone stood by and laughed.
In my defense, it had nothing to do with the fact that I was wearing heels--I was talking to someone and couldn't see where I was stepping.  
I made the fall as gracefully as I could. 
However, this was the result:

It's already bruised, swollen, and missing the top few layers of skin :(


The fact that I saved the cupcake I was carrying when I fell!

Finishing my to-do list after 3 days of working on it.  
Even though I already have another to-do list for tomorrow...ha ha

Until next time,

Awkward & Awesome Thursday, Edition 14


When the guy from my last Awkward post chased me out the church building and around the car to tell me his invitation always stands.    Umm...thanks...?  

I think the most awkward thing will be when he finds out I  1. Have a blog.  2.  Have been blogging about him.  Oh well, we'll deal with that if and when it happens. lol

Water bras.  This awkward moment was brought on by a girl I work with.  We'll let your mind wander...


Watching tornados.  Not the damage they cause, but how powerful they are.  I love tornado season--if I'm bored, I just watch storm coverage.  

White Water Bay trip on Memorial Day!  Got to work on my tan, cause we all know I needed it. lol

Driving my boss's Corvette.
I will admit though, I was TERRIFIED. ha ha

Until next time,
