Awkward and Awesome....Never Say No to Pie

Happy Thursday! Is it just me or does it seem like this week is just dragging on and on? I just want it to be Christmas already! Today I'm linking up with The Daybook for Awkward and Awesome Thursday....because life is sometimes awkward but still awesome.

Awkward
1. Introducing people to each other when you've forgotten the person's name. Why does this happen to me all the time? The husband and I now have a system in place for this....if I don't know someone's name, I just say "Hi, good to see you! This is my husband, Jon" and then Jon says, "Hi, I'm Jon", shakes their hand, and hopes that the person then says their name. Totally works....most of the time.

2. Accepting free pies. The week of Thanksgiving, the realtor we used when we bought our house three years ago e-mailed us letting us know we could stop by his office for a free pie. Sounds good right? The husband totally made fun of me for RSVPing yes...but I wanted that pie! I totally thought I could just stop by, pick up the pie, and go. WRONG. I had to do a filmed...yes filmed!...interview about my experience working with him. Totally embarrassed. And totally unprepared. But....that brings me to my "Awesome"

Awesome
1. Turns out that free pie? Also included an entry into an iPad drawing. And guess who won? This girl! Totally worth that embarrassing interview!

2. I now have earned the title, "Best Wife Ever." Lesson learned: Never say no to a free pie.
