Awesome: Having our own cherry tree!
Awkward: Parking under the cherry tree for two days.
My car literally looks like sh**.

And I love it when you leave your awkward/awesome moments of the week below in the comments!


  1. I get so excited every time I see a new awkward/awesome post come up! And why did the guy that hit your car with a pipe cuss you out? People are crazy!

    Awesome: Having a lady at a store acknowledge that I am pregnant (and not just fat).
    Awkward: Having said lady say in a kind of nasty voice, "Good luck handling two"

  2. Wait a minute - a guy hit your car with a lead pipe (how do you "accidentally" do that anyway?) and HE cussed YOU out? That's not awkward, that's just rude!!

    and yay, I made it into your post!

    Awkward: Standing on the bus, completely confused on how to use the Muni ticket.
    (no awesome, it was just awkward, but the bus driver was nice and showed me.)

  3. Awkward: I'm jealous that you and Charlotte & Katie are hanging out together.
    Awesome: That you and Charlotte & Katie are hanging out together.

    And I agree with Charlotte... How do you "accidentally" hit a car with a lead pipe and then have the gumption to cuss said car's owner out?? RUDE.

  4. Awesome: A realtor who thinks he can finally get our house sold
    Awkward: His first suggestion is getting rid of the green desk I bought & painted.

    Awesome: Fabulous gal helping to stage asks what we are doing with spare crib in daughter's room
    Awkward: long pause while trying to sneak glance at stomach area ... finally asking, uh, ah, is it something you have a need for?

  5. Awesome: Finding a 10x10 Public Storage unit near my house.

    Awkward: Hopping in the golf cart for the manager to drive me to the storage unit for inspection, having him almost drive straight ahead into a wall when he meant to back out of the parking space (what is harder than driving a golf cart?), then driving 20 feet to where the unit was located (he's been working there for a year!)
