awkward & awesome

Today I thought it'd be fun to join in on my first Awkward and Awesome Thursday.


1. Having a total complete stranger ask to hold my baby. Luckily (for the guy) I'm nice and luckily (for me) he wasn't some cracked out hobo on the side of the street selling meth with his teeth falling out. whew!

2. Beginning to think that baby boogers on my hand is the norm. It's a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it. right, am i right??

3. Going in for a delicious baby smooch and getting spit up on. Yes, smack dab in the face. At least it was only a teeny tiny explosion nothing too catastrophic. A little water did the trick.


1. Getting better at going longer without washing my hair and learning how to disguise it. It's an art I tell ya. <----should this be under the awesome or awkward section, i'm not sure, but my hair is healthy and shiny :)

2. The massage that the Mr. gave me in the kitchen last night during our few minutes of alone time before bed. I'm a sucker for a good massage and I think he kinda likes me. Did I mention that I'm spoiled? ;) awkward for you, awesome to me!

3. Baby Ry falling asleep within minutes of being put in his crib. The kid is awesome, just plain awesome. 

4. Getting a free extra chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A because they got our order wrong! They are so nice-anyone want a free chicken sandwich??!

Happy Thursday!

  1. Oooo i am right there with you on the hair thing! I saw another blogger write about how much they loved their "second day" hair and all i could think about was how much i HATED it! But i must say i'm getting pretty good at disguising it as well! What tricks do you use?!

  2. so far i've only tried baby powder which works amazingly well! maybe one day i'll try the dry shampoo, but I'm pretty pleased for now! also i've found that it's better to not brush very often at the roots or maybe just in general less messing with it helps!

  3. oh man, I don't think I've washed my hair in ... ok, you don't want to know how long. but I've been sick, so I feel like that gives you 3 days at least.

  4. Thanks for the comment :) Loved this post!

    How weird that some dude wanted to hold your baby! You are a braver person that I am, because I wouldn't of let him hold my child!

    Happy Thursday girl :)

  5. Your awesomes are indeed awesome!! Especially the extra chicken sandwich Mmmm mmm! :)

  6. ha, oh gosh. baby spit up is definitely the worst when that happens. you are just too funny :)

  7. i am not sure what is more awkward. that someone asked to hold your baby or that it was a guy! i would expect a lady but a man. love it.

    and amen on the massage. props to the hubby!

  8. haha we were made to be friends! I wash my hair like once or twice a week ! I've been teased for it my whole life, but it doesn't ever look dirty or greasy!

    A guy seriously asked you if he could hold your baby??? wowza.
