Awkward & Awesome Thursday!

One of my favorite blogs is Sydney’s over at The Daybook. She’s an adorable fashion blogger who hosts what she calls “Awkward & Awesome Thursdays” on her blog each week. They’re always so funny and make me laugh when reading them!
This week, I decided to link up. My awkward & awesome moments from the past week aren’t nearly as hilarious as Sydney’s, but I anticipate more to come if I remember to write these moments down going forward. I can be quite the clutz, and quite awkward at times. Though it’s all worth it in the end for the awesome!

♥ Showing up to “a couple of beers with friends,” only to realize that my only friend was sick in bed and it was a bunch of Marines blaring screamo music (thanks for that word, Erin!) and playing beer pong. I walked in, awkwardly looked around, kissed husband goodbye and walked out. No thank you!
♥ Busting out laughing while in the middle of a quiet theater watching “The Help,” all because of the following dialog:
“I think I’m going back to Sugar Ditch.”
“SUGAR Ditch?! You CAN’T you back to SUGAR Ditch!”
Because really? Sugar Ditch?! Even though it was quite awkward to have uncontrollable giggles in a silent theater.
♥ Trying on my bridesmaid dress for next week’s wedding, only to find out that it wouldn’t zip. Proceeding to panic while hauling ass to the store for some spanx and a bandeau to hold it all in… then finally getting it zipped after some makeshift tailoring (read: cutting up the lining) and having not one, but two people zip me up— but it does fit!
♥ The fact that there really is a place called Sugar Ditch. I Googled it. It’s in Tunica, Mississippi.
♥ Launching my new blog design and getting nothing but fabulous comments from you guys the first day. Seriously? Way to boost my ego, you fabulous friendsters. I needed that!
♥ Playing hostess to my family when they came to visit this past week, and baking a flawless Cheesy Baked Tortellini for dinner, a la Giada De Laurentiis. Nom nom nom.
♥ Edys Ice Cream on sale, 2 for $6. ‘Nuff said. (Could this be why my bridesmaid dress didn’t fit?)
If you post your awkward & awesome moments of the week, please do let me know. I love reading them!
