Awkward & Awesome Thursday

2.02.2012

AWKWARD
- The Boyfriend gave me a new nickname this week.  Muffie Fuddlebottom.  I have no idea what goes on in that man's head.

- Confession time.  Within minutes of receiving the email about the Toms flats, I bought a pair.  I know, I know.  They're not exactly "budget friendly."  But I think the company's One for One policy is fantastic and with the exception of a 5 dollar dress from the thrift store, I haven't bought any new shoes OR clothes in about four months.  Plus, let's be honest.  We all know I'm gonna wear the shizznit outta those shoes once they arrive.  Can you tell I'm totally trying to justify this purchase?



AWESOME
- I finally got my hands on a copy of Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games series.  I'm only a few chapters in but oh my goodness.  So good!



- This Sunday is a big day for our little family.  Beside it being Super Bowl Sunday, it's also the one-year anniversary of the day we adopted Molly.  Since we don't know the actual day she was born, I'm just calling February 5th her birthday!

Molly, one week after we brought her home.  She was so little!!

  1. That is quite possibly the best nickname in the history of nicknames.

    You're a lucky girl, Muffie.

  2. I thought nicknames were supposed to be short and catchy? ;-) No need to justify a shoe purchase, it's simple really: there is no such thing as "too many shoes", that's it! Have a lovely day xo

  4. LOL! I spent all day yesterday trying to justify purchasing a pair of the ballet flats as well. I was pretty shocked at the price, not gonna lie, but they are soooo comfy and I know that I, too, will wear the shiz out of them (as I have my other Toms). I just can't decide which color!! :)

  19. Stephanie, I call the days we got our rescued dogs their "gotcha days" which I celebrate as if they were birthdays. Happy day, Molly!

    I love the new Tom's and I can't wait for the Hunger Games movie to come out. I loved the whole trilogy.

    P.S. Husband and I have a lot of odd nicknames. Sometimes we forget ourselves and have to explain to other people:)
