>Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Awkward:
– The little girl that walked into my shop this afternoon and yelled, “ewwww… it stinks in here!” Guess the smell of fresh flowers isn’t for everyone. 
– Picking up the dog from the groomer yesterday and hearing that she thinks your dog is “insecure and timid.” If you had to stand on a table with your head in a restraint every time you went to the salon, you probably wouldn’t be too eager to see your stylist either, lady. 
– Taking an order from a customer over the phone for Valentine’s Day, and being asked to come up with something romantic and original for his girlfriend’s card. 
Awesome: 
– That Valentine’s Day balloon behind my head in the photo above, which is in the shape of dice and says, “Wanna Get Lucky?
– The recent epiphany I seem to have had about floral design — as of this week, I think I’m finally getting the hang of it! 
The Pioneer Woman‘s free Photoshop actions (I used “Fresh and Colorful” on the photo above).
– Carrie’s recipe for X and O S’mores
Awkward AND Awesome: 

About Keira Lennox

I’m a small town girl from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style.

I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear.

  1. >And just what does one write when they're asked to be romantic for someone else? Because what I would write wouldn't come across like something a man would write. And your groomer? Jerk. :) I'm sure she didn't mean anything by it but still. Jerk.

  2. >Ahahaha!! Kids are so crazy. I totally did that very same thing at the cheese shop earlier this week. Prolly not as funny though. heheI'm so glad you liked the s'mores. They are fun and, although time consuming, really pretty easy to make. Thanks for the shout out! xo,Carrie

  3. >HahahaaaI am so laughing at the little kid!AND HOW DARE SHE say that about your dog ? !Ok, now I thought the ballon would read "Wanne get laid?" – I know how very unromantic of me.

  4. >Just catching up on Bloglovin' for the first time in a week or two and realised I've actually been missing Awkward and Awesome! Thanks for sharing the Photoshop tutorials – want to start posting some pics but must first learn how to make them look half decent…

  5. >Ahhh don't you love A&A Thursdays? :) I love that family photos link and that little girl comment is hilarious! I taught swim lessons in high school and the best part of the day was comparing all of the kooky things little kids said! owenandchelsey.blogspot.com
