Awkward & Awesome

I used to LOVE doing these Awkward & Awesome posts each Thursday and I've seen a few bloggers trying to revive it, so I thought I would join in today!

Awkward: Trying to get in my car after work and my keyless entry not working (I thought maybe I finally ran the battery dead in my fob) only to realize that it wasn't working because it wasn't my car. In my defense, it looks identical to my car! I mean, can you tell the difference?

Awkward: Walking into a bathroom to see two people having a personal conversation and you're like "I'm just here to pee...I swear I don't care about what you're discussing...carry on while I use the umm bathroom." haha

Awkward: Walking into work after lunch to hear (or at least think you hear) someone say "You want a cookie?" What else can you do besides turn around to get a glance at this weirdo (for the record, I did not want his cookie...I mean MAYBE if it was a cupcake. Kidding.)? When I turned, I saw some random guy with his window rolled down and he said "Are you Nikki?" I said no and hurried into the building. A few issues here...1. I might have a hearing problem, or food on the mind all day everyday. 2. Who is Nikki? 3. Why is this random guy driving around asking for her when he has no idea what she looks like? Craigslist Missed Connections, perhaps? 

Awesome: They are very close to starting our house--we were told we should have a slab within a few weeks! 

Awesome: Special K Red Berries. I could eat it all day everyday (back to the food on the mind from above) and still feel somewhat good about myself. It has fruit in it so that makes it healthy, right? 

Awesome: Our friends from Arkansas are coming to stay with us for the weekend and I'm so excited to spend time with them! 

Hope you all have a great weekend! 


  1. Yes! I love these posts! Maybe I will join in next week ;) That car thing is soo funny! I'm actually like paranoid of that happening to me, so I always look in the windows first of my car to make sure it really is mine. Also, I love your car. And I am obsessed with Special K cereal, I love allll of them, but the strawberry is a good old classic. Have fun this weekend with your friends!!!

  6. Those cars are the same. Totally not your fault!

  7. I've done this with my new car!!! I literally yelled at this dude to get away from my car until I looked at the license plate... -_- (fell off the earth that day).

    That's kind of hilarious that you thought he said cookie, but creepy as heck if he was looking for Nikki to be creepy.

    I can't wait to see the beginning of your house :) such an exciting moment!!!

  8. I hate when I go to a public restroom and someone wants to socialize at the sinks. If I am not in a hurry, I stay in the bathroom stall until everyone else has left!

  9. I have totally done the car thing before, don't worry!! And yay for getting started on your house! So exciting!

  10. LOL those cars look exactly the same! Honest mistake I think! :)

  11. Oh, I totally miss awkward and awesome! I might have to try to do an "awkward and awesome" post this week!

    and those two cars are exactly the same.

  12. Hahaha oh my goodness! The car and bathroom situation totally cracked me up! I have been in those exact situations and felt SO awkward! Way to laugh it all off ;)
