awkwardness

There I was, standing in Barnes & Nobles, Lila sound asleep in her stroller, and my mom and I laughing so hard we had big tears of mascara rolling down our cheeks. 

Last night, both Brian and my dad were working, so my mom and I decided to have a girls night strolling around the mall with Lila. Not looking for anything in particular but just to hang out. We went in stores and looked around but weren't really finding anything worth spending money on. We decided to stop in B&N before we called it a night and there on the main table was the funniest book I have ever seen.
I cannot even begin to explain the hilarious photos in this book. And it is so funny because we all have family photos like this. You know, the Glamour Shots. Or that one with the matching sweat shirts, splatter painted denim skirts and shoelace hair clips.

Just laughing over nonsense was such a great way to get over a stressful day when Lila was super fussy, I had a hard time getting work done at home and I just needed to let it all go. And as it turns out, the book comes from its very own website, http://www.awkwardfamilyphotos.com/. I hope it gives you a side splitting laughing session too.

Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.
