Awkward & Awesome Thursday

IMG_2578 edit
So I'm kind of thinking I may do these "Awkward & Awesome Thursday" things from the blog, The Daybook. I'm not 100% for sure but I'm thinking about it. Here goes!

+ My photography skills...sigh.
+ When you visit Park Meadows Mall for .2 seconds after a temple session in Denver...because your dad has to do a couple of returns. You go into Crate & Barrel and Anthropologie and leave with nothing. #sin
+ When my toes come out of my tights and nursery kids try to attack them.
+ When cleaning the second bathroom upstairs and thinking about the mans bum who sat on the toilet last. Thinking of that makes it grosser to clean the toilet seat and just so you know, his name was not Kevin, but was the prior owners.
+ Having our dishwasher leak all over, having a "dishwasher guy" come over and verifying it was a problem for awhile meaning it has been leaking for a long time and the prior owners failed to disclose it.  Also the water kind of damaged some of our cabinets. Not sure if this awkward but it is a bummer. Also, going to put your first set of dishes in the dishwasher and then realizing your big sized plates don't fit. The dishwasher is too short. And opening the dishwasher and realizing it hits the oven when it lays open... pretty much an awkward dishwasher.
+ When you realize you want to invite your doctor to come over and hang out, as in your rheumatologist who talks to you about your possible disease, ankylosing spondylitis (AS). More on that here.
+ When you are starting to recognize/know the employees at Lowe's because you have gone there so much...as in stayed there for over 6 hours in 2 days...

+ When Katinka watches me type this post and same with yesterdays. She seems to love watching my computer screen.
+ Unpacking boxes and finding all "new" winter clothes that had been in boxes the whole summer! Pretty much like a pre-Christmas. Oh, I forgot about that cardigan and that jacket, yes, and wow, I have a lot of purses!
+ Driving in the car and hearing songs you "Zumba-ed" to and then the choreography flooding your mind and your muscle memory.
+ Waking up 15 minutes early and Kevin bringing Katinka in bed to snuggle with you...awe. 
+ Ward temple session at the Denver temple. 
+ Dreaming you are best friends with Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl and then texting Kevin you want to name your daughter Blair because you like the name. ;) 
+ When you are illegally using some-neighbor-you-don't-know's internet to blog, as in right now... 
+ Because if you want to swap ads, email me, and I'll throw them your buttons up until the end of Dec. so you get a half of a month extra! I usually do monthly swaps...my email is: sloanbookblog@gmail.com
What do you think? Boring? Cool? Would you like to see more A&A Thursdays? Maybe I could do an outfit picture a week?


  1. Hahaha! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's affected when a song comes on the radio that I zumba-ed to :)
    And that is such a BUMMER about your dishwasher :( So sorry!
    You are gorgeous Ash, and I want your hair!!

  2. Haha! This was awesome! Too funny!
    I am also a victim to replaying Zumba choreography in my head ;)


  3. I love new seasons!! It always makes me feel like I have a million more clothes. I get so excited!
    Happy Thursday,

  4. The zumba thing made me laugh...I do the same thing.

    The dishwasher? Sounds like the nasty people that sold a house to my parents.

  5. absolutely love these thursday posts, I completely look forward to them!

  6. I've seen this elsewhere, it's pretty cute! Sorry about your awkward dishwasher. I'd give my right arm for a dishwasher...I HATE doing dishes!

  7. im liking the outfit post..the skirt is fierce!

  8. k that's seriously sucky about your dishwasher. Don't you hate when you don't realize that kind of stuff until it's too late! haha! And I loved this. I loved the one about cleaning your toilet. that is awkward.

  9. I love this! :] So many fun things! Moving sounds like SOOO much work! I'm excited to own a house someday but not super excited for all the hard work that comes with it! Haha. Also, I need to pack clothes away for the winter/summer months so that I can be excited about "new" clothes. I'm not sure why I don't do that already. Haha. I do always have fun starting to wear my winter coats though because I always find random things {jewelry, money, etc.} in my pockets!
