Awkward and Awesome

~everything on the list is a link~
A celebration of all things Awkward and Awesome in my life for the week.  Enjoy!
  • My awkward moments always seem to involve some sort of clutziness... Example:  went bowling with my team from work after work last Thursday.  Only one other guy from the team was there, so I pulled up a stool to sit by him and wait for the others.  Attempting to climb up and sit, I managed to tip the stool OVER.  How does this stuff happen to me?
  • Someone managed to find my blog by searching for "zombie waiting in line".  What?!?  Another popular search is "uninspiring things", which hurts my feelings a little.
  • In classic Dana form, someone tried to pass by us in our row at the Rodeo last night.  I'll admit, I rolled my eyes when I saw her walk up because we had six adults and seven kids occupying nine chairs.  This could easily become like one of those little plastic puzzle games where you shift the little squares until the picture is sorted out!  Are you kidding me?  I was holding Lexi and as soon as she passed me, I lost my balance and began leaning forward, fearing I was going to tumble into the row in front of me with toddler in hand!  I shifted my weight and my brother in law grabbed my arm.  Next thing I knew, I'd landed with Lexi and myself sitting on the poor guy!  Needless to say, I was fifteen shades of red by the time I scooted back into my seat.
  • My kids are some of the funniest people I know.  I walked into the living room on Sunday night and heard Justus mutter, "I still live with my parents."  I asked Lexi to say the pledge of allegiance. It ended, "One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and my brother for all."
  • I got third place in bowling with my team from work.  It was only out of six, but still... I don't have much to work with in Awesome-category this week.  It counts!
  • Rodeo.  Twice this week.  Once for girls night and once with my inlaws!  (Do I hear one more trip with the kids?  I think yes. Have I told you that I (heart) rodeo?)
  • Enjoying the wonders of {} and
  • Planning a St. Patty's Day party for the fam tonight.  Pics will follow.  As if you doubted!
  • Double date with friends from church on Saturday.  The company and the food rocked!  ({count it}, that's two.)
  • Hubby asked me to read a book with him.  We're reading The Relationship Principals of Jesus on our handheld devices.  At.the.same.time.  He's brilliant, I tell you.


  1. Third place is good! You sure have broken in your new cowgirl boots! Sounds like you guys have been having a lot of fun.

  2. Well, if it helps on the blog search deal...I went through ten pages and couldn't find it under the search "zombie waiting in line" & the only reason it comes up under "uninspiring things" is because you have a post titled that. :)
