Awkward and Awesome Thursday

It is awkward and awesome Thursday. I am just glad that it is Thursday and the weekend is coming. Hope everyone is having an equally awkward and awesome week!

~ Planning dinner in your head, getting everything ready for a nice crockpot meal that will be ready when you come home from work. Mentally giving yourself a high-five for being on top of things...till you realize that your crockpot exploded a month ago. You haven't bought new one.

~ Running errands before work that are making you late. You rush into a christian book store to by a ladies bible study book that you are a week behind in. You frantically search for the book, but they don't seem to have a "Bible Study" section. You ask the store clerk quietly stacking Bibles, he brings you right to the exact book. You pay, rush out and almost try to get into a black Fusion. It is NOT your black Fusion. Oh...and the book you bought? The Frazzled Female. Appropriate, no?

~ Colin has taken to rolling around the floor whining and fussing when he is over tired and wants his way. Or just because he feels like throwing a tantrum. Dramatic throwing himself around and rolling all over the floor. It is wonderful.

~ Getting dressed for work and liking your outfit...till you get to the car and notice your right pant leg is COVERED in cat hair. Your black pants covered from your grey cat. Not so hot.

~ My Husband and I playing an obscene amount of Farkle on our phones...and sometimes using the work 'Farkle' as a verb in our conversations.

~ Pulling your friend's son and than your own son's head out of the railing slots...barely.


~ Having friends from MI stay with us. It was good to hang out and let the kiddos play.

~ Shopping. With Friends. Without babies.

~ Colin's dance moves. They are killer.

~ Having my friend's kids be as naughty as my kids. I am not alone! ;)

~ Booking tickets to go home. I always look forward to it.

~ Having a zoo membership AND already having it pay for itself. We went twice this week.

Most awkward and awesome photo of the week:

I was cleaning the house, getting ready for guests. Colin was strangely quiet. I went to check on him and found this. He had pulled himself up on the trash, pulled out the empty ice cream container and was licking the life out of the lid. I did what any good mom would do. I grabbed my camera and took a picture. He was signing "more" frantically. Apparently, he liked it. So much for no diary, sugar, chocolate or nuts before one. I guess I am glad that it was an ice cream carton that he pulled from the trash,not a raw chicken container or something else.
Awkward~ My child ate out of the trash
Awesome~ It was just ice cream and his little signs for "more" were pretty stinking cute, even though he was covered in a sticky mess.

Tell me about your awkward and awesome week!

Love the picture of Colin! I am laughing so hard I am crying over here in MN. My 3-year-old is asking why are you laughing and why are you crying?

I'm a friend of Andrea's just making my way through your Awkward & Awesome posts!
