I think I have found an awkward friend in the writer of the blog, Awkward Things I Say to Girls.  It is a good one to read when I have one of those days where I am trying my best to be put together, but everything I do feels and sounds so ridiculously ridiculous that I want to go back to bed and start all over again.  Really, I think he and I might be kindred spirits, although he is a way better writer than myself.  I also think I could have enough material to start my own blog that is Awkward Things I Say To Everyone (Especially Boys), But Also Including Animals (1), Automobiles (2), and Coffee Pots (3).   Thanks Emily for passing this one on!

(1) With the exception of cats.  And reptiles.  And amphibians.  And anything slimy.

(2) I used to talk to my little red car and would give it love taps when it was having a rough time.  It usually sounded like, “Ok, little guy, let’s go…”  Weird-o.

(3) Mr. Coffee and I broke up last week, as we had been having a rough go for awhile and couldn’t work it out.  My new, red Mr. Kitchenaid is so much better looking, reliable, and intelligent.

Happy day

I truly hope you have a good one.

This is kind of lame, and I am a little embarrassed to even let you know that I did this, but not so ashamed that I will leave you hanging. Today I took a test that told me who my TV boyfriend would be. I know, I know, so grown up (1). Well, ladies and gentlemen, the results are in, and I am happy to say that the adorable Jim Halpert is my one, true TV love. Can you hear the bells ringing? Yeah, yeah, I am not really thinking that I am going to marry a purely fictional character, but maybe John would want to marry me. I am sure he is Jim times seven.

(1) I am even more embarrassed to tell you that not too long ago I took a quiz that gave me my Guy IQ. Well, I will just say that the quiz put me in the “not-so guy smart” category. Is there a way I can get a tutor to help me and my apparent lack of knowledge?

So this is my new favorite band. Going to see them Sunday. Very exciting.

Love these cute boys and their converse shoes.

And these P-town guys that play a piano flute and shake a jar of change. They put on a great show.

Off to make a cup of tea.

XO, me


Just funny

Shivering.  Tired.  Messy.  Giggling.

Doesn’t life just crack you up?

Happy Monday!
