Skirt: Chevron Stripe Maxi, Top: Banana Republic (old), Earrings: Etsy

-Sitting at a table with strangers and a woman telling you that she hates cats and rambles on and on about why she hates them.  I say, thanks I have two of them.  weirdo.
-The old man at the trail running the opposite direction yelling saying you started early today?  Wait are you talking to me?  He's old...  I'm pretty sure he thought I was someone else.  was that rude not to reply? I did at least smile.
-Returning from a walk with a co-worker during the afternoon work hours and your boss walks by and says 'nice shoes'.  think... think... I should be working right now at my desk not walking.  We sometimes take a late lunch to walk.  phew... crisis averted...
-The husband had to have a tooth pulled and the dentist put a cadaver (bone graft) inside the pocket and stiched it up. Amanda: Soooo you have a dead person stitched in your gum?  Joe: yep. gross...
-Mallory and I went out to lunch and as I prayed over our meal the server came over to fill up our water.  He filled one glass up and waited for us to finish praying to fill up the other.  Once I finished the server responded: Amen. cute and awkward all in the same
- Finding a mini toy police badge in your travel makeup bag when when returning from a trip.  I have no kids, I had no people in my hotel room, did the hotel cleaning people put the badge in there?  no idea... try explaining that one to the husband who was standing there when you found it.
-A coworker identifying a price tag left on your shirt.  thanks husband for taking that off while ironing.  sigh...

-Waking up in the middle of the night to a soft kitty snuggled up against your side.
-Deciding that 5:30am is too early to get up every weekday, so let's change it to 5:45am.  15 minutes is better than nothin'!
-Perusing through the creamers to find a limited edition Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor.  yum
-Opening the windows for fresh autumn air.
-Lightening a new candle for a yummy pumpkin scent.
-Making ice coffee in the afternoon from the mornings brew.
-Receiving a big fat fashion magazine in the mail!  yes please!
-Getting a text from a friend saying they miss you...

  2. YES YES YES! Pumpkin Spice Latte creamer is the shiz!

  3. haha yes definitely that is awkward dead person gum stitched up in your husband, um. why is my first question? and i assume it is staying in there forever? ahh texts from friends saying miss you are some of the best

  4. I can't tell you the number of times I've had a price tag on me!!!

  8. 15 minutes of extra sleep means I'm not a monster for the rest of the day. 15 minutes = life saver.

  9. So many good awkwards and awesomes. I especially love the prayer one. It could easily fit into both categories. And as always, your outfit looks beautiful!

  10. Me encanta la falda!:)

  11. Haha the Police badge story made me chuckle ;D

  12. hahahaha About the price tag left on your shirt, having a husband who will iron your clothes is all you can ask for. Checking for price tags as well would be the icing on the cake.

  13. Hi Amanda. Just found your blog! So cute. New follower. I'd love to do a button swap with you if you're interested.

    P.S. Totally agree on the pumpkin scent and pumpkin creamer. Can't get enough pumpkin right now!
