Awkward and Awesome Thursday

-When you say goodbye to a customer, knowing they can hear you, and they say nothing. i'm just trying to be friendly. JERK.
Almost cutting my own bangs this week, and then remembering the awful experience i had last time i tried to cut my bangs....yeah...they did not look good. I have no pictures, thank goodness. but it was pretty bad.
-(from anonymous) when your 17 year old co-worker follows you around making cricket noises and daffy duck voices. eek.
-Talking about someone (in a good way) and they walk in on you, thinking you were talking crap about them. so awkward.
- sitting on the bus, listening to the bus driver sing this really weird song (which she apparently only knew the chorus, since that's the only part she sang...over and over again.) for 15 minutes. *in an awful country voice* i may be nervous but i ain't scared of youuuuuuuuuu. (or something like that. wtf.)

-breakfast with Megan today. Yay for best friend time:)
- getting my hair cut today. these bangs are driving me insane!
- road trip with hubby tomorrow to Vegas. I can't wait!
- I finally did awesome in my spanish class, and he did not correct me ONCE. Yes, I am patting myself on the back right now.
-General conference this weekend. I cannot wait to hear the words from our general authorities. they always say what i need to hear.

okay, so last night i saw the hunger games with the hubby at midnight. (do not read this if you have not seen the movie! i don't want to spoil it.)

overall, it was pretty good. but i think my expectations were a little high. i have been pumped about this movie since i found out they were making it. i tried not to watch clips in hope that i wouldn't ruin those special moments (rue dying, the reaping, etc). anyways, i tried not to judge when katniss didn't get the pin from madge (who isn't even in the movie) and i tried to be cool when she looked like a freakin' super model in the woods (when everyone else in district 12 was exactly how i pictured them, dirty, skinny, poor, etc). i thought the casting was freaking fantastic. loved everyone in it. her relationship with her mother was spot on, as well as her relationship with gale and peeta (love him). the unfortunate thing about the movie overall was that they sped through it. i couldn't even have feelings during some parts because they rushed through. they didn't necessarily rush for rue's death, which i appreciated. i thought that part in the book was beautifully tragic, and i was going to be so mad if they messed that up. I also felt that they left a lot out. so much...and at the end i didn't even feel like clapping with everyone else. A lot of these feelings came because we had obnoxious losers sitting in front of us and behind us. for example, when they shot back to gale during those tender moments between katniss and peeta the guy in front of us yelled (ohhh look it's jacob all over again) and i'm like really? really dude? don't even dare compare this story or any of the characters to twilight. (though i know he enjoyed some of the movie, he was totally crying with everyone else when rue died.) and then the guys behind us were making snide comments the whole time. i would never do that in a movie premiere. even if you don't like the movie, just respect of the other fans who paid good money to come and see it. if it's in the dollar theater, or there's not a lot of people around us i'm going to talk to chauncey and make comments on what we do or don't like, but not in a movie premiere. anyways, over all it was good, i definitely want to see it again, and own it, i just wish they didn't rush through everything.

i hope that didn't change anyone's view on the movie, like i said, i liked it. there were just some parts where i felt could have been done better. the book was so good, i just wanted the movie to be equally good. (but we all know how hard it is to turn books into movies.)

awkward and awesome thursdays

-the drama that has been going on at work. i swear sometimes people make some really dumb decisions.
- the conversations that go on with some people after they find out that i'm married and only 20. get over it. i'm young and i am married, big deal.
-leggings and pants. i know i say this like all the time. but seriously, they aren't pants and you will look stupid and awkward if you wear them as pants. (see picture above.)
- the moment when you realize its 3 in the afternoon and you're still in sweats and you  haven't really moved from that one spot on the couch. yeah. that's me right now.
-talking to people that clearly do not like you and they act like everything is fine. uh i know you dislike me, so don't be fake around me.
-a little sunbeam at church calling chauncey "papa". okay it was a little cute, actually really cute but kinda awkward at the same time, you know?
-knowing that you will cry during a movie that you haven't even seen yet. (does anyone else feel this way about the hunger games? or am i just a crybaby?)

- hunger games!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8 hours!!!
-the soundtrack to the hunger games. so good.
- seeing my parents this week, it was a short but good visit.
-doing some deep cleaning in the kitchen and throwing away things that have been there since i met chauncey. it feels good to have a thoroughly clean kitchen.
- teaching the sunbeams. it is so rewarding to see them learn and grow.
this blog post (really though, the whole blog is great. love it). thank you for saying everything that i've been wanting to see about this dilemma. you rock. (that is also where i got that awesomely awkward picture above.)

dear rude person,
i do not appreciate you telling me the divorce rates in people that get married young. i am aware of them, but i do not need to hear them from you. especially since i hardly know you. get a life.

dear allergies,

Please no.

These are some things that girls (or guys, but that would be a sad, pathetic sight) should just say no to:

-leggings as pants. Leggings are not, nor will they ever be pants. Ever. Even if you have a "nice" body, just say no.
- Mini skirts and leggings. Why did that even become a thing? It's not like wearing leggings will making your outfit more modest. 
-Sweats in public. Even if they are "cute" sweats (such as victoria's secret sweats). I would say the only exception would be if you're taking an exercise class or if you're traveling (in a car, not a plane). Maybe if you're like sick and have to go to that one class. But otherwise, please don't make it a habit.
- Uggs. They are awful awful shoes. Just don't.
- Crocs. Never. Please don't.
- Only wearing tank tops and having your bra show....If you don't want to be modest then fine, but at least keep it classy.

Anyways, those are just a few things that bug me, fashion wise. so yeah. If you do any of these things, i apologize. But really. Okay, have a Miraculous Monday!

awkward moments

Because I didn't do awkward and awesome thursdays, here's an awkward moment for you guys... :)

Last night at work a lady came in and told me this, "I know you don't want to hear this at your age, but you look too young to have a job!" So i guess she thought I was like 16...And then she saw my wedding ring. Awkward glances were exchanged and she walked out. So yeah. Awkward moments at work are always fun.

La la la....

Hey guys! sorry it's been forever. Chauncey and I were both pretty sick last week, he caught it earlier than i did so he got over it quicker. I unfortunately had the sniffles and congestion all weekend. No fun. Anyways, I'm really bored right now. I finished most of my hw and i'm just waiting for my Belly Dancing class to start. So i thought I would update you on what's going on in our lives :)

As I said, we were sick last week so not much happened. On Saturday I had my first sewing class (when I bought my sewing machine in December, it came with 4 free classes so we could learn how to take care of our machines as well as do a bit of sewing). I've always liked sewing, but I never had a machine of my own and when I did sew I usually had a lot of help, so it felt great to learn all of those things so I could do it by myself. When I got home I practiced some of the things I had learned, and then I found some scraps from a quilt that i made for Chauncey. as I was experimenting with stitching, I decided to make a little tote bag, just for fun. I was so proud of myself. It's really small, but it's so cute. I'll have to post a picture. I don't know what I'll use it for, but I was just proud of making something all by myself. Sewing is so much fun! Then I had an idea about making a jean patchwork tote bag. So I found some old jeans that didn't fit me anymore and I started cutting them up. I have the body done, but I still need to add the handles and the bottom. I plan to line it with a cute paisley  fabric. I can't wait to finish it :) The handles are made of the seams of the jeans. For each handle there are three seams, and I braided them together to strengthen them. Chauncey thought it was pretty clever. So when it is finished i'll post a picture. For now, here is a picture of my sewing machine!

I don't really care for the project runway stuff on it, but it is a great sewing machine and has all the functions and stitches I would ever need, plus more. I can't wait to get started on more projects :)
