Awesome & Awkward Friday

Can you believe it's already October? This whole year is going by too fast. This is probably one of my favorite months to live in Houston as far as the weather is concerned. It's cooling off so that I'm not always covered in sweat and there are days with low humidity - a runner's dream.

Linking up with From My Grey Desk and Bargain Blonde to share my fave 5 awesome & awkward moments from the week. Check them out!


  • Great bodypump class this week. I upped my cling/press weight a smidge because my back has felt fine for a bit now so I think it's ready for small challenges.
  • Amanda did my bodyjam request. It was so much fun...but only the back half of it.
  • New Girl this week was amazing. It always is. The fluffer, winston's creepy stare, Tuff Romney? So good I watched it twice.

  • Dinner/the start of book club. I love when we get together - so much laughing and jokes being made even while covering some serious drama topics.
Starting at the left and taking it clockwise: Amanda (thanks for the photo), Mandy, Jess, Me.
  • I made these s'mores blossoms: 


  • Flat tire. Joined AAA. Waited for an hour and a half. 
  • I started to approach two different tables of girls that I thought were the friends I was meeting for dinner before realizing that they were strangers. Both tables noticed. 
  • Told my physical therapist about how squats were hurting again this week. He told me I shouldn't be doing those. I think that would have been something good to mention when I started seeing him back in August...or at least when I straight up mentioned doing them last week. 
  • About the bodyjam release I requested...turns out I didn't remember hardly any of it and it happens to be one that really irritates my shin splints. good call.
  • Remember that small increase in my weight lifting? I wasn't sore two days after when I had pole, but my back muscles were tired and didn't want to lift me to work on our new tricks. I love looking incompetent...great.
How was your week? Tell me something awesome & awkward about it!

    Serious drama topics?? I have no idea to what you are referring!! ha! Good advice given and I feel better today than I did yesterday!! xx

    1. Haha. I love it! I'll have to stir some up so I wwon't feel so lame!

  2. Awesome- the presidential debates! Love them. :)
    Awkward- while playing the hymns on the piano for church, my hymnal fell--in the middle of the song. D'oh.

    PS- your s'more blossoms look absolutely delicious.


    1. I can't believe that I missed the debates! I forgot to dvr :(
      Oh no! I hope you made a smooth recovery!

      Thanks girl! They were super delish!

  3. AAA is awesome, except for how long you sometimes have to wait :( but that s'more cookies look super yummy & I think would totally make up for a flat tire!

    have a great weekend!

    1. I agree...even if they do take forever! I would have changed it myself, but I was so worn out from my double workout day I didn't think I could muster the strength.

  4. Those treats look SUPER GOOD!

    1. Thanks! THey were a huge hit at work.
