Awkward & Awesome Thursday



This face. AKA me trying to get away from Jacob's foot.

This face. AKA me trying to get away from Jacob’s foot.

-Clicking the unlock button on my car keys to unlock the front door of our apartment.

-Running from our front door to the dumpster in my pajamas to take the trash out because I didn’t want to change just for that reason… As far as I know, no one saw me. :)

-Walking up to the car in the parking lot, only to realize it wasn’t mine when I tried the handle and it wouldn’t unlock.

-Trying to cook with butternut squash yesterday. How the heck do you peel the skin off of that thing?! Talk about a mess all over the place.

-Speaking of cooking, why do we ever use chicken thighs? If trimming the fat off of those suckers wasn’t the biggest wake-up call to hit the gym, I don’t know what could be. It was really gross. I think I’ll stick to chicken breasts from here on out…


So and So

My Storytelling class put on our “Buffalo Tales Storytelling Event” last week and it was a blast! We all got to share our favorite story we told from class and we got a great crowd!

-Receiving an A on my big research paper in my Communications Law & Ethics Class!

-Laughing with my husband and enjoying a nice dinner together this week:)

-Christmas break officially starts today! I kicked it off by returning from my last exam (it started at 8am!) and immediately snuggling back into bed for another hour. Life is goooooood.

-Speaking of Christmas break, although I’m picking up a lot of extra shifts at work, I will have about 50% more free time… and I’ve decided I’m going to use that time to get in the Word, exercise, get my craft on, and relax. Maybe even read a book or two for fun. The goal is to make this month rejuvenating.

  1. My little tip about butternut squash… if you cut it in half first, then microwave each half for a few minutes, either the peel will come off easier or you can just scoop the flesh away from the skin!

Tell me what you think!
