Awkward and Awesome: I Just Wanna Say..I Haven't Been Away..I'm Still Right Here...


-The number of times I've thought about shutting my blog down and calling it quits!

-The overwhelming feeling I get from trying to write content that everyone will enjoy.

-Comparing the number of followers I have with that of others who just started blogging-like yesterday! It's discouraging.

-It's almost my Bday and I don't have anything planned yet! Gurrrllll, get it together!

-The fact that Kristina from PrettyShinySparkly is hosting the Neon/Neutral edition of BloggersDoItBetter and I don't have an outfit picked out!

-I didn't participate in the lace craze on EverybodyEverywear on Tuesday. I'm feeling so out of the loop.

-I haven't done an outfit post in FOREVER!


-I did my VERY FIRST FEATURE on my blog yesterday. Read all about my thrifting soul mate Shana of ColorBlind by clicking here.

-BTW-I'm looking for more fun, thrifty, creative bloggers to feature for my 'Word on the Street Wednesday' segment. Shoot me a personal email to if you're interested!

-My sister received her Master's Degree yesterday. YAY!! I'm next!!

-It's cookout season. I loooovvee to eat! This is my favorite time of the year because I don't have to worry about cooking a lot. I just get to go plates at each cookout that I attend and I make it work for me!

-Me and the BF are having date night on Friday. Dinner and a movie. We really want to see Bad Teacher but it doesn't come out until next weekend so we are gonna see The Hangover 2. Uggh! We really enjoyed the first one but I've heard mixed reviews about this one. Has anyone seen it and if so please divulge your opinion....PLEASE! Other movie suggestions are also welcome.

Share something Awkward and Awesome with me...PLEASE!!!

  1. My awkward: My ex boyfriend and our newly non committed  "friendship", trying to figure out what that's all about and how I feel about it.

    Awesome:  My experience in blogging it's fun and intriguing.

  2. Oooh cookout season!! And let's not forget in the deep south, we've got crawfish season too! We're doing a crawfish boil for dad's day and I'm so excited!

    Here's something way awkward! Almost rear-ending the car ahead of me this morning only to have them pull up into our daycare and park right next to me. Embarrassing!

  3. I can empathize with some of your "awkward" especially the number of followers.  I constantly wonder how I can increase my numbers but then I realize just because people aren't following doesn't mean they aren't reading which is what I really want.  So please just keep posted...the followers will eventually catch on :)

    Lastly,  out of ten I would give hangover 2 a score of 5!!!! It was very predictable to me and the storyline was very similar to the first which now makes me think they should have just let the classic be a CLASSIC.  let me know what you think and Bad Teacher looks GREAT...I can't wait to see it

  4. Your awkward sounds like your guy needs some space to 'do him'..let him know that it ain't gonna fly like that. You and all of your flyness deserves the commitment-no if's and's or but's about it!

    And yes although blogging can get overwhelming at times (making sure to visit and comment on all of your favorites) it's quite relaxing for me! Sheesh what an oxymoron!


  5. OMG!!! I looovvveee the south...especially the parts where they have cookouts so huge that they look like block parties....crawfish boil? I'm in there!

    And your awkward is tooo funny and definitely embarrassing...just like your waiter being the person that you previously saw digging soooo far up his nose at the stop light!!!


  6. We ended up going to see the Hangover 2 and honestly I slept through at least 80% of the movie so that should let you know what I thought of it! My BF enjoyed it though-which was my main concern anyway.

    And you're correct just because people aren't following they may still be reading. It just makes me happy though to see that my numbers are going up ya know.


  7. I know what you mean about creating good posts people want to enjoy, I'm having a bit of writers block at the minute :( Keep going and don't get discouraged though!

  8. Hey!! Thanks for the encouraging words;-)
