Awkward and Awesome Thursday

As always, inspired by Sydney over at The Daybook

Awkward:
  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips.  Yeah, I jumped on this bandwagon.  They went on really well on my easy hand.  My other hand was a different story.  It was a complete disaster, and by the next morning, even my good hand had polish chipping off of it.  And then removing them was next to impossible.  The package suggests nail polish remover, but that so did not work.  I ended up using a combination of peeling them off with my fingers and biting them off with my teeth.  Yeah, it was not a good night.  I do have another package, so I may get brave and try it again at a future date.  But it will have to be way out in the future.  If you have used these successfully, any advice would be appreciated.
  • Carrot- FAIL.  As you can see from this picture, really, really fail!  Perhaps my soil was too compacted.  They are all twisted and small. 
  • Chocolate Dog Pile Goats Milk Soap.  I don't think this need further explanation.
  • The growing lump that Meatball has on his head.  He has a vet appointment this Friday, and I am hoping that she will telll me it is a large pimple and pop it.  And also a little nervous that she won't.
Awesome:
  • My first rose bowl of the year, made with roses from my garden.  I wish you could smell through the computer.

  • My favorite irises are blooming.  Ok, enough with the flowers.

  • Lily Aldrin's wardrobe on How I Met Your Mother.  It is amazing.  I might need to do a post about this one day.
  • The Hangover Part 2.  I know it is still a few weeks away, but I simply cannot wait!
  • Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine.  I know this has been out for a while, but I really love this song.  And the album is growing on me too.

I can't wait to see The Hangover Part 2 as well! Also love Florence and the Machine. Cosmic Love is one of my favorite songs by her. Your flowers look amazing by the way :)

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
