What was Awkward and Awesome about your week?


  1. you are too funny! and those glowing puppy prints are awesome!

  2. You always make me laugh! Some of your things (like complementing people on photos they didn't take) would be things I would do. Oh, and I decided to post my own awkward/awesome post today. But here's a little extra one for you.

    Awesome: The whole awesome/awkward thing you started is catching on. Another blogger joined in on the fun -

  3. bwa haha... tambourine. rock it sister!

    the picture of the girl jumping is beautiful, especially her reflection!

  4. You have tambourine skills? I'm jealous. I don't really have any musical skills, besides a little vocal harmonizing.

  5. Two Birds - Thanks!!

    Jessica - Yay! I'm so glad it's spreading. Her cheese story was hilarious.

    Charlotte - Thanks! She was such a sweet girl!

    E - No, sadly, no tambourine skills. The host just doesn't trust me with anything else, I believe. Not that she should.... Like you, my only possible skill is in vocal harmonizing.

  6. Hahaha these posts are the BEST!! Too funny about making a friend and then she did a happy dance for you lol! Love that
