Awkward and Awesome.

I feel like I've been gone forever. But thankfully, my parents are bringing my camera to me this weekend! Yay! I've never done this before, but I thought it would be fun to do the Awkward and Awesome Thursday that Sydney from the Daybook does. Here goes my attempt:

-Having an annoying girl in one of my classes that I don't really like and texting Rob and telling him that I don't like her and that I'd really enjoy punching her in the face. Then going to my New Testament class and singing the song: "I'm trying to be like Jesus." Wooooops....
-Realizing that I'm engaged and I don't have friends. Except Rob. And maybe three other people.
-How ridiculously poor I am. I have a $1.77 to my name right now. Dang you, college. (thank goodness I get paid in four days)
-I'm a five year old and I hate going to the bathroom. I will wait until the last possible moment. This includes the pee dance and Rob making water noises to the point that I can't stand it any longer and I have to run to the bathroom before I pee my pants. Peeing is annoying ... I have to get up, go to the bathroom, undress practically, sit on the toilet, and do my business. Why can't I just be a male? They've got it easy.
-Having a meltdown over something silly and then telling Rob I'm on my period and he laughs and then says: "That clears a lot up."
-Snorting. I've become an avid snorter when I laugh. I already have a ridiculously loud laugh. Now snorting? Please plug your ears.
-BUNK BEDS. I am 20 years old and I have to sleep on a bunk bed. Getting up and down from that thing is a work out.

-Rob cooking. I get out of class at nine o'clock three days a week and he makes dinner for me. I'm a lucky girl. Who knew a man cooking was so attractive?
-My sister pretty much planning my wedding. Thank you Christie :)
-Getting to see my parents this weekend. I'm pathetic and I miss them even though I saw them a couple weeks ago.
-Thrifting the coolest blanket in the world for our engagements. Oh, and an awesome friend who took our engagements for free. Double bonus! 
-Being the happiest I've ever been. What love does to you, my friends. 
-Red lipstick. I've become obsessed.
-Rob forcing me to show my blog to our friends. Them loving it and making me feel really embarrassed but then feeling really cool about myself. I've realized I can be proud of this little bloggy of mine. I need to stop being so critical of myself. This blog is an achievement. Thanks for the boost in self esteem guys :)
-My New Testament class. I learn something new every time I go. I love learning about my Savior and the marvelous things that he did during his ministry. I'm so grateful for his love and sacrifice.


  1. I feel the same way about going to the bathroom. Always have.

  2. Wow, this is a fun idea. I might steal it myself :)

  3. Haha, peeing is THE WORST. I love that I'm not the only one. When you get your camera back, you should post pics of your ring!

  4. i love red lipstick, too! and your blog is absolutely adorable and inspiring. be proud missy :)


  5. HHAAAAAAA. I love that first one, I am so there. I hate when I leave church and then hear myself swear when I am only a few miles from the parking lot. I would love to try red lipstick, I am chicken.

  6. Totally agree with the bathroom thing. LOVE the red lips... they look awesome one you :)

  7. I was JUST about to agree with Bri on this! Such a hassle! Boys have life so much easier!

  8. That first 'awkward' with the girl? I've done pretty much the EXACT same thing right before going to chapel at school. It's equal parts awkwardly embarrassing and so ironic that I just want to giggle about it.

    And going to the bathroom SUCKS when you've got tights on. Or long dresses. Or anything that isn't shorts or pants, really. And long shirts. Jackets. I procrastinate it for hours.

  9. LOL I hate going to the bathroom - but mostly just in public or when I know a family member is in the next room over! So awkward!
    Great list :)

    I hope you'll be posting these engagement photos soon!


  10. I didn't know Rob could cook! ha! That was fun to read :)

  11. Great awkward and awesome's! And it's good that you love Red Lipstick because you look gorgeous in it!


  12. Hope this isn't creepy... I LOVE your blog! Even though I don't know you at all, I just love it! So stop criticizing it, please. :) So happy for you two! Keep up with the posts, I love them all.

  13. haha the bunk buds made me laugh! I've never had to sleep in a bunk bed but I can only imagine. Just found your blog love it!

    1. you are so happy and i love it. I am so excited to see your wedding!

  14. I love these posts! They always crack me up so much. Can I ask where you got your glasses from? They're super cute.
