Awkward and Awesome Thursday! Take 2

Hey! This is Awkward & Awesome Thursday!
It's where I post about awkward and awesome moments in this little thing called life!

And just some pictures of me being mostly awkward.
Target dress & sandals - Peppers "Nola" Eyewear

When you step out of your vehicle in a rush to just quuuuuuickly stop in a gas station to grab an Arnold Palmer for a beach picnic. That doesn’t sound really awkward, until I say that I notice my skirt was not covering my unders.  Instead my skirt was caught in my unders and let’s just say that ALL the gas pumps were being used at the time.  How ironic.  So….I was like, “Hello all you people! Here’s my back side! Sorry, but yes you DID just see that.”  Like I said though…we were going to the beach so “unders” was code word for swim bottoms. Thankful they weren’t the real things and maybe wearing swimwear made this experience better and not as awkward, yes?! …or maybe not!

Not awkward for me, but happened to someone VERY VERY close to me… quoted from a text I received the other day: “That moment when you’re at a restaurant with people you don’t know that well and you pull out “Chapstick” from your purse to put on your chapped lips…but, you realize your “Chapstick” is actually an unwrapped tampon that you raised to your lips… #thatjusthappened  #wahwah ” So thankful that was NOT me! ;)

Trying to take a nap, in your car, on your lunch… you find the closest, empty parking lot and recline.  Twenty minutes later you wake up from your nap, pull your seat back up, turn and look left out your window and notice a man parked right next to you.  Literally, RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR CAR.  Ummm…..there is a WHOLE PARKING LOT empty and he has to park right there and see me with my nap head of hair. Of course we made eye contact and I grinned (with possible drool and face crease), locked the doors, and slowly reclined back down to “napping position.” Just close your eyes, it helps. It helps. It helps. Repeat it.

You are walking into Walmart and see some people you know.  Mid conversation you notice that one of the men has “the barn door open,” “flies are coming in,” “close the doors”….you know!  Do you say something, ABSOLUTELY NOT.  Do you keep checking to see if it still is down, yes, but not trying to.  Awkward and I am sure that person will realize later.  Trust me….if it was a girl or lady, I would have said something. 


The email you were supposed to receive from your husband yesterday, but missed it until this morning right when you needed to hear it most. It starts with “I am totally in love with you….” and something about God smiling yada yada and your beautiful yada yada……I mean, it all makes sense now and you totally HAVE to have a great day then! ;) Too sweet babe.

Our wood floors are looking amazing, even though we are not completely done finishing them yet.  Those of you who have sanded and finished floors before can understand the awesomeness in being SO CLOSE TO COMPLETION! James has been doing amazing work and we can’t wait to sleep in our bedroom again.  The mattress on the floor for almost two weeks just ain’t cuttin’ it. P.S. I will have a post up soon to show the completed project!!! J

Tomorrow is Friday and that means SUMMER BBQ for lunch. Enough said. Nuuuuuuuuuummmmm.

I actually AM downsizing.  Not just words coming out of my mouth anymore.  I have probably 15 pairs of shoes that I am going to sell as of right now.  Some have been seen on this blog!  More clothes, accessories, stuff, stuff, stuff to get rid of, yes!.  But, one step at a time, right…and that means SHOES first!  P.S. I have all size 9, VERY gently used & NEW booties, heals, etc… If any of you ladies out there are interested in any,  send me an email @ and I can send pictures and pricing. J

I literally am just finishing this ice cream drumstick.  It was most definitely AWESOME!

Have an AWKWARD or AWESOME Thursday……..or both! J

just some stripes

Target peplum tank, Charlotte Russe jeans, Madewell skimmer flats, Target sunnies
Well, I hope your Monday has been a good one.
Just because it is Monday, doesn't mean it has to BE A MONDAY!
You know what I mean?! :)
Here's to finding joy in the day that gets a bad rap.
Happy good 'ol Monday to ya!

crisp. clean. and refreshing.

Target sandals, Eddie Bauer shorts, Old Navy tshirt, Dollar Store glasses
So, I must have this thing for blue and white, or something?!
Come to think of it, I must be obsessed. 

like our lovely home: white blocks with blue trim and shutters on the outside,
and all different shades of blue rooms on the inside with white trim!
like summer skies: our summer has been surprisingly full of clouds and rain,
but you know the NORMAL summer skies...white clouds on the blue painted backdrop.
I love this color combination, and I don't know why? 
like this outfit: which feels like pajamas that you can dress up with heals. ;)
Maybe I like blue and white so much because it's
crisp, clean and cool feeling for a warm, summer day!? 

More randomness:
Do you know what else is crisp, clean, and cool feeling? My mouthwash! And say my mouthwash is blue and then white too! You know?? when you swoosh it around your mouth while you count down the agonizing 30 seconds you have to keep it in there to kill all those germs. Usually by the time I get to 20 seconds, I'm foaming and overflowing at the mouth, and that's where the white comes in...ALL OVER MY FACE!  Gotta love it though.....'cause it's crisp, clean, cool, blue, AND white! 

Ok....randomness and tangent mind must mean it is the weekend! Ready for a weekend break,
................but never take a break from mouth washing, and brushing, and flossing for that matter.
Oh boy....I'm done rambling.

Oh, H&M. I'm downsizing! Why do you tempt me so?

Ok.  So....I have this deal with the hubs to get rid of HALF MY WARDROBE!!!  I KNOW!!  CRAZY!! But, totally possible.  It is nothing he is forcing me to do, promise!  I made this decision on my own, seriously! James and I talked about this officially when we were on vacation out west this summer (will post pictures of that road trip asap :) ).
James came to me probably two weeks after that "promise day" of mine and said,
"Babe. So, how many items do you have?" 
I was like, "Honey, what are you talking about?"   
", accessories, shoes, all of it!"
"Oh Yes! The promise. Let's get on that right away."
"Remember 50% of everything, hon."
"I know..."
Well, much has happened since then....but nothing having to do with getting rid of my things.   I haven't gone out purchasing, but I say that a promise is a promise and it has not been completed yet.  I will, I will!
All you fashionistas out there may be freaking out a little,
but if I can down size, N. E. ONE. can! Trust me!
So....all this being said....It just so happened that when I'm downsizing, H&M decides to start their "BUY ONLINE, not just in store" phase.  How ironic, right!?  Since I'm downsizing, I am just window shopping.  But, you see I have been window shopping H&M since.......well, a long time.  Now you've done it H&M. You just want to tempt me, don't you.  But I'm not giving in, just yet. 
If you are not me, and if you are not downsizing....
go right ahead and check out with these lovelies:

It's been a while...


Well hello there. 
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Tiffany and this is my blog about......

Yup.  I feel like I've been gone for a while.  Actually, let me rephrase that...I HAVE BEEN gone for a while!  Like exactly 25 days. YIKES!!  Life for everyone is busy, but we each experience different things at different seasons of life.  There has been good things happening in these last twenty-five days and then many deep hard-to-get-through times too.  Maybe one day I can write it down and explain it, but until then....I just know that God is good.  Life is a gift from God, so it is also good, because He created it....and I am thankful for each and every experience in the middle of it, because that is how we are shaped, molded, and built. :)  Cliche, sure. Truth, as well....YES!


From the very beginning of this blog called "TisforTiffany," I knew it would only be a PART of my life, and NOT my everything. 
(gasp....did she just write that out? :/ )  I confess!  I must say that consistency of posts everyday is definitely not what blogging is about for me.  There is no right or wrong way to blog, and that is what I really enjoy about it.  I enjoy being able to express and share funny moments, faith, and style here on the blog as often as my little creative mind desires and time allows.  HAHAHAHA! That thing called TIME!  Do you have some to spare!? :)

Blogging is a way for me to keep an online journal of all that creative juice that is bubbling up inside of me.  But man, I admit....sometimes it is bubbling and bubbling and bubbling WAY TOO FAST and I want to do it all. at. once.

That's when I have to...
Look around. 
See what I got.
See what God has already put right in front of me. 
See what responsibilities he has laid out before me.
See what he wants me to do with what he has given me.
And set some things aside for a moment.

So, anyways.....I'm back.  :)
