Awkward and Awesome Thursday!


Happy Thursday! I miss the last couple Awkward and Awesome Thursdays but I thought I'd start up again today. (The photo above was taken a while ago on my birthday weekend. I'm listening to an astronomy lecture at the library in the Huntington Library).



Awkward:
- While out surfing, I suddenly started thinking about sharks (hey, i just watched Shark Week!) and right then I felt something brush my toes and shrieked...loudly...then I realized that it was only seaweed.
- Removing my tights for dinner after work (it's always cold at work) then realizing that I didn't shave my legs...so I went to put my tights back on, only to find that I had made a run in it while taking it off. I seriously sat in the car for 5 minutes thinking what should I do? haha. I ended up just skipping the tights and hoping no one would notice my unshaven legs. Gross, I know.
- While altering a vintage dress, I accidentally made a wrong slit in the fabric so I ended up having to shorten it more than I would have liked to...but my husband said it's sexier now. Hmmm...not sure that this vintage dress is suppose to look sexy...but I'll have to make it work!
- Going to a karaoke bar with friends. And singing. You see, I can't carry a tune for the life of me and my voice is terrible! I use to be one of those that either had to be really drunk to sing or just sat there singing silently. Well, I got over that and stopped being so self conscious- it's so fun! Tad on the other hand is not shy at all.
- When calling my husband a guy picked up and I said "Hi babe!" and he replies, "Hey what's going on?" and then I realized it didn't sound like my husband and when I checked the #, I had dialed it wrong. I wasn't sure what to say so I just hung up!

Awesome:
- While paying a parking a meter, an old man stopped and told me that he alway loves it when a woman dresses up and then he actually thanked me! I told him thank you and that I try! It didn't come out sleezy at all and I took it as a true compliment.
- Having happy hour with my co-workers. So much fun and we decided that we were going to try to do it every 2 weeks.
- Getting these shoes in the mail and having them fit so comfortably!
- Reaching my first 100 posts! When I started blogging last April, I didn't realize how much fun it was going to be. Thank you all so much for reading and commenting, I really love knowing other people are enjoying my blog.

Here's to a hundred more posts! I love that picture of you listening to an astronomy lecture. It actually looks pretty retro because of the dress.

Hi Tammy,

Wow! 100 Posts. You have been seriously blogging to hit 100 posts in 5 months. Congratulations! You did say how awesome you look in the Take Action Dress. I must take note on how well it works for the Library.

I have an invitation for an in store event with your name on it. But I need an email address. Please reply to lauramartinsemail@yahoo.com. Kris will be there.
