Silver Lining: awkward + awesome

July 25, 2013

awkward + awesome


+ last week someone sent us an anonymous package. Cool, right? Until it was a "how to save your failing marriage" self-help book. No note or anything. So I guess someone out there thinks we're on the verge of divorce? Sam and I looked at each other awkwardly... and then burst out laughing.

+ me doing zumba. enough said.

+ a friend hacked my facebook recently and updated my status. He said he found my facebook open on a fourth-floor computer lab on my alma mater's campus. I haven't been on campus for months...

+ last week I tried to make cookies, but somehow ended up with flour in my hair, one egg splattered on the floor, and a broken kitchen-aid, all within five minutes. And then I burned the first batch. You'd think I'd never baked before.


+ at school we each got an iPad Mini for our classroom. I've been downloading cool educational apps all week.

+ i went grocery shopping and came out $39 under our weekly food budget. What up kids. It felt like stealing.

+ whenever we go on road trips, Sam and I have this magical routine. It's called I fall asleep the whole way there and he wakes me up when we've arrived. Hashtag best naps ever :)

+ new facebook and bloglovin followers. It may seem silly, but it makes me happy.

+ a holiday in Utah celebrating when the pioneers first arrived in the valley. Anything that means a day off work and lots of fireworks is good with me!


In other news, I lost a hair-growing contest, we went ziplining, the people at the waterpark practically know us by name, and I grow a little sappy when I realize Sam and I have been married for almost two whole years. Follow along on my favorite form of social media @brookejanette. I usually follow back :)

Happy Thursday!
