Awkward & Awesome

--I just ordered Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis DVDs.  This is definitely a bit fat Awkward but I'm hoping that, at some point over the course of the 90-day program, it becomes an Awesome.  I'm not holding my breath.
--I came home from The Boyfriend's on Sunday night and carried my weekend bag, my camera bag, two bags of groceries, a bag with all of Molly's stuff, and Molly in her pet carrier all at the same time.  My neighbor, who rarely speaks to me even though I always smile at her, saw me coming up the stairs.  She said, "Got everything?"  And then just stood there watching me struggle up the stairs with all that crap.  Um, no.  I don't "got everything."  Can't you tell by the way I'm huffing and puffing up the stairs while trying to hold a pet carrier with a guinea pig popcorning inside of it???
--I know I always say work is super stressful but this was the week that beat all weeks.  I can't go into why but let's just say I didn't sleep for three nights in a row because of anxiety.
--My lunch on Monday consisted of a Slim-Fast shake, a banana, and a twinkie.  I've reached a new low...

--That twinkie I mentioned earlier?  It was pretty delicious.  Took me back to the good ol' days of elementary school.
--Bought a brand new shade of nail polish at Target last night.  It's a lovely shade of elephant gray that's just perfect for fall.  It'll make it's debut after vacation, since summer will officially be over for me at that point.
--After my Most Miserable Day of Work Ever, The Boyfriend sent me the sweetest, most loveliest text message in all the land.  I really love that guy.
--As of tomorrow night, none of this work crap will matter because I'm going on vacation Saturday and doing a whole lotta this:



  1. hooooray for vacations!! and i havent had a twinkie in YEARS. sounds pretty fantastic. xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  2. Good luck with the dvds! I am sure it will turn out to be an Awesome. :)
    I hope your job gets less stressful. Vacation will be wonderful, I'm sure.

    I love your blog! now following. :)

  3. i've been totally debating the tracy anderson videos, so i'll be interested to see how you like them. the awkward fat must go! and have a great vacation!

  4. what?? your neighbor sucks. and I want a twinkie AND gray nailpolish now!

    have fun on vacation, I'm uber jealous!

  5. I've always wanted to get the TA DVD, it looks fun and seems to produce some amazing results. Then again, she always says no woman should lift more than a 3 lb weight. So I think....what if I need to lift something over 3 pounds?

  6. I'm so envious of your vacation in paradise! But not of your bad work week - so glad the boy put a smile back on your face!

  7. I love your posts, they are so funny! I hope the awesomness kicks the akwardness's butt :) I've been debating the Tracy Anderson DVD's because her moves are so weird, but supposedly that's the basis of her whole workout thing... I dunno I'm more of a Gillian Michaels kinda girl... anywho, have a great time in your vacation!!


  8. Your neighbour sounds like a bitch.

    Is Tracy Anderson Gwyneth Paltrow's trainer? I remember seeing a video online of her doing some crazy arm thing where she made circles and then did some lunges at the same time. Or something. I just about got dizzy and fell over, just from watching, let alone trying it out! Hope you have better luck.

    YAY FOR VACATION!! Have a great time, can't wait to see some photos. xx
