It’s been a long time since I’ve done a Thursday Awkward and Awesome post a la’ The Daybook! Let’s get right to it, shall we?


– A recent Words with Friends game on the ol’ iPhone. I had the first move, and played the word murder. And then my opponent quit.

– The old guy behind me in line at the grocery store who told me I had “mischievous eyes” after commenting on each of the things I unloaded from my cart. You got me, sir. Nothing says “wild child” like a gallon of skim milk, piles of produce, a couple frozen pizzas, and Ben & Jerry’s. Rawrrr… 

– Forgetting that I had to change our window displays when I got dressed in the morning, then trying to shuffle around in a dress and oh-so-carefully move things around so as not to flash all of downtown main street.

– And forgetting to announce a winner for the jcpenney giveaway! Tomorrow, I promise.

– Realizing just how forgetful I am lately.


The Coffee House channel on Sirius XM.

– Not being the palest girl in Florida now that I’ve discovered the awesomeness that is Jergens Natural Glow. I loathe self-tanner — the smell, the zebra stripes, the oompa-loompa-meets-Snookie skin — but this stuff is a wonder lotion! The smell isn’t fantastic, but it gives you a really natural color gradually and doesn’t streak or leave your knees and elbows five shades darker than the rest of your body. Good stuff.

– GROUPON! We just ran one for the shop this week, and now I’m hooked. If you’re a small business that offers a product or service, I recommend it for bringing in a slew of new customers and getting your name out. Plus, their customer service staff is pretty stellar.

Honey Badgers. And Terra for always leading me to these little web gems on Twitter.

  1. Great. Now I guess I’m the palest Floridian in the state. I think I have a bottle of that Jergens stuff. So it really works? I might have to give it a try because my white legs are blinding and I insist on wearing shorts anyway. Haha.

  2. SO I don’t know if you know this, but I follow you on Bloglovin’ and I thought maybe you gave up blogging I haven’t seen you all month so I decided to come to your blog address and low and behold here you are! I think your new url or something doesn’t work in the feeds on Bloglovin’ so I haven’t seen your posts for a month or so! So sad! But I am glad to see you are still bloggin’ along!


  3. Your awesomes are my awesomes. Well, except the Jergens..yet. I’m a rather tan Floridian, but with it too hot to be outside lately, I may take up your recommendation.

  4. i love the primary colors here, and those yellow espadrilles are the cutest :)

    i got to help out with the window displays at our store today and i am so glad i went with jeans…because i usually end up wearing a skirt/dress. and groupon is awesome!!

    caroline – pictures & words

  5. Cute, Cute, Cute!!! And too bad you were not buying a new kitchen knife, that would have really freaked that old guy out!!

What do you think?
