Awesome and awkward


1. the weather as of late   uhm no   it should not be 102 in Virginia at 4pm
2. The storms we have been having, knocking out power.
Nick I were at our friends house with no power for 2 days during record breaking temps of 103-   We played cards by candle light and ate the contents of their fridge and freezer
3.  Why wouldn't you hang a rubber duck from the back of your truck?

4.  All of this crazy weather also produced some hail... so picture me and my coworkers sprinting to our cars to park them in the parking garage to blocks away... I was pretty awkward looking

5.  I got a paper cut last week and it had been bothering me for a few days, it just kept hurting and getting redder.  So I just continue to ignore it.  Well the Saturday of the heat wave/no power weekend my finger is killing me, the redness is traveling down my hand and is oozing.  AWESOME!  We decided to go to the lake to cool off so we stop at the only place open Kroger and grab some water and sunblock.  I popped over to the pharmacy to ask what to put on the thing. She takes one look and is like "you need to go to the doctor, like now"... uhm honey child... there is no electricity!!!  So Nick is freaking out, we googled a place to go who said to hurry and come in because they would be closer early. 

 I would just like everyone to imagine what it is like to tell the doctor you are there for a paper cut... 

Luckily the doctor was like "I am so glad you came in, this is serious, its a staph infection and it is on a tendon.

So life lesson:  Paper cuts can lead to staph infections- who knew!!??


1. Summer salads-  our friends who lost power grilled up all their food and sent it home with Nick and I ...  hello Omaha steak salad you taste divine

2. Hanging out waiting for fireworks to begin

3.  Both awkward and awesome.  Gia was like a lion waiting for prey when we busted out that steak.  Don't judge we do not normally let her hang out on the table but she just kept jumping right back up and inching closer and closer to Nick's plate.   He caved and eventually gave her a piece in her bowl

4.  Since power and water were out in the area, my coworker brought her dog to work and I got to hang out with this little cutie ALL day!!
Please excuse the nastiness that is my hair... I am ashamed :(

5. Birchbox!  uhm  loved everything about this box.  My favs so far are the stila bronzer and of coarse the Taylor Swift perfume
6. Eating cotton candy with my lover

7.  Hanging out with these peeps  Kenson and Ashley  (Kenson is Nick's cousin)

Any awkward of awesome moments this week?


  1. wow that must have been a massive storm to bring that tree down and then hail, geesh! hope the power comes back on soon

    1. It did thank goodness, I was dying without AC in all this heat

  2. We got the same box! Have you tried the self-tanner? I'm afraid that I will mess it all up and end up looking like Gia.

    1. No I haven't I am just as scared, I don't understand how a wipe wont get all streaky. Have you tried the cheek tint?
