I think I stink at apologies

Yesterday in church we had a lesson on forgiveness. And it was very good.
During the lesson, we were asked to complete an exercise in which each spouse turned to the other and said "I'm sorry" for their respective offenses .. {whether big or small} that had happened during the past week. 

Husband turned to me, with a very scrunched up guilty face and said, "I'm sorry that I watched football too much on Saturday and that I didn't spend nearly enough time with you because of it."
Great apology right? He's sweet.
I said, "It's OK honey. I appreciate that."
And then it was my turn.
I said, "mmm. I can't think of anything I should apologize for."
Off to a great start ...

And then I thought of it.
"Oh wait, I know what I'll apologize for. Love, I'm sorry that when you didn't take me out on that date Saturday night like you had promised and looked me dead straight in the eye and crossed your heart about, that I got a little bit cranky."

Superb apologizing skills or superb guilt-tripping skills?
nobody knowssssss...

Elizabeth Benfield said...

ha! that is totally something i say.

Abbey said...

hahahaha! Sounds like some of my apologies..

Cute vest!!

Adelyn said...

Love the outfit today! I make the same stupid mistake all the time. :D

Cassidy Thomas said...

Hahah the stories about you and your hubby make me smile.

And the snow your having makes me jealous.

e.day said...

k i dont know why your header says "stuff about life that might not make you laugh". your posts always make me crack up instantly.

ACupOfJenn said...

That is definitely something I would say! Ps, where did you get that sweater vest?! I must have it!

Colleen said...

I'm the same way as you. I have issues at apologizing or even when I do it's sort of a guilt trip.

Bridget said...

i love how i can even see people walking across the back of the photo and you are still posing like a champ.

The Suburb Experiment said...

I like the person in the background of the one pic standing there checking out what you're doing.

I'm good at those apologies too. And my husband, bless his heart, does feel guilty. Which makes me feel guilty. So I guess no one wins. :)

Jennifer said...

I really enjoyed this post :) I'm sorry I got mad at you for not doing the dishes when you said you would. But I'm not really sorry I got mad at you. That's how conversations in my house go.

sisters4saymoreismore said...

ps. we are working on our "Sydney" bun's... trying to get all 4 sisters to do it (that sounded, kind of obscene... oops)

Ashley Hasty said...

Hahahahaha you're too funny! And that outfit is fab! It may be my fave so far!

Ashley @ Little Miss Momma said...

That's exactly how I say sorry...I will need to read this to the hubs later--he will get a kick outta it!

Heidi said...

Hahaha.

& I'm (once again) stealing this look from you. I have been stalling on how to wear my denim shirt & this is rockin' awesome.

Amber said...

Too funny!! I would have said the same thing!!
Also, you are rockin this 30 for 30!

kileen said...

so funny!! i love your red top that you paired on top of the denim. so chic and perfect for the upcoming holidays!!

Breenah said...

That vest would look too kitschy on anybody else, but you look fab. And, yeah, work on those apology skills :)

Lilly said...

Haha...you are too cute! Totally something I would say.
I could not in a million years pull off wearing that vest but you do is so perfectly.

amber said...

Your vest is SUPER DUPER cute!! Also, I think your apologies sound exactly like mine...I don't see anything wrong with them....lol

Sarah loves it all said...

I LOVE LOVE that sweater vest. It's amazing. It's like the "ugly Christmas sweater" turned completely chic and amazing.

Katie Aman said...

haha!! This sounds like me and my hubby! Don't you love church? I always feel so convicted after going to our services...not sure if that's a good or bad thing-but it means I have some things to work on I guess! Our service this week was on worry, and how we should just give it to God and not put it on our shoulders :) very good message :D
You look adorable as usual!! Love the vest!!!

Jessica Melanie said...

I love how you fold your belt over like that.. Sunday and again today!! Love love it..just thought I would let you know!

Noelle said...

Haha I love it because I am the same way! Us girls just don't have as much to apologize for... and thanks :) I am glad the Spirit touched you, I know it did me! I don't USUALLY cry like that...

grace said...

another super cute outfit- no surprise there... i love the belt like that and its such a great color. can't ever go wrong with gray. ever.

also, i'm posting your sf interview this week! i will email you the details when it goes up- can't wait!

Emma and Andrew said...

love love love the sweater, and the apologizing game sounds fun and smart to do weekly. but only the guy would have stuff to apologize for because us women are always right... right? haha jk

A.Co said...

LOL too cute - nice apology Syd.

A.Co @ A.Co est. 1984

PS - ummmmmmmmmmm is that sweater vest in your 30 for 30??? Something tells me it's notttttttt.

Sarah said...

I love your "apology" skills! I've been known to use them on my boyfriend maybe more than he would like! Hope you get that date of yours!

kenda said...

i literally laughed out loud while reading this. unfortunately i'm at work & my coworkers want to know what's so funny. i'd tell them, but none of them understands what a blog is.

Meg said...

Hi! I am a longtime reader, but kind of a lurker - so now I'm actually commenting. :)

I was just wondering - how do you do that cute twisty thing with your belts? I tried doing it based on what I saw in your pictures, but failed... miserably...

By the way, that is exactly how I apologize to my boyfriend.

Christina said...

Love the new layout. SO great.

Janeen said...

I like your blog (and the new layout). I change mine often too. Oh and I really like how you tied your belt. So cute!

Emma said...

love the vest.
i feel like a creeper but i just went through all your old posts. oh man i'm creepy.

Frances Joy said...

That story made my day. And your vest is super cute.
Win-win.

Cee said...

This sweater is so cute, perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

I probably would've answered the forgiveness question the same way, especially if I had gone second ;)

Dylana Suarez said...

That vest is just too cute!

Love your poses!

Amy Z. said...

haha you two are too cute! and I LOVE LOVE your vest! You've inspired me to go on Panache's site to go find the vest for myself, I hope they still have it!

elise said...

Um, you're hilarious.

Also, I wish I had your talent to create such cute outfits. I never would have thought to put those things together. You look so great.

Love and Stuff said...

My boyfriend is great at apologizing. Me not so much! ANyways I love the way you knot your belt. Still trying to figure out how exactly you do :)

Alessandra said...

both!
(hilarious, by the way)

Pam S said...

I love the sweater vest, it's so adorable I could cuddle it...and if you're wearing it I'm afraid I'd have to hug you too...sorry that's just the way things are. :D

I would go with both on the apology/guilt thing. I'm so glad I don't get asked stuff like this, I mean I do things that I need to apologise for because I'm only human but I don't always remember it until afterwards. Then it's too late and apologising just seems really awkward and weird...so I do it anyway and seem awkward and weird.

nmaha said...

I just found your blog. You crack me up plus I love the way your pictures are taken (eastman colour style). So I'm going to stop over regularly.

Enchanted Gardens said...

That's a cute little vest dear :))

Whitney said...

I'm so glad I found this blog. I love keeping up with your stories and your outfits are always perfect! Keep it up!

Alexandria said...

I call both. I'm also skilled in using powers of apologizing to get what I want. Heeheehee :)

Hope said...

Haha! If I were in the same situation, I don't think I could think of anything to apologize for either. Oh well, maybe next week! :)

Is that dogs on your sweater? It's cute!

O O N A said...

Waaaiit... I can't apology like that?? Well. Whatever. Ha ha just kidding and this is so true. Thank you for putting it to words :)

Ann said...

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

it's hard to be a perfect partner, isn't it? especially when you are supposed to apologize about something.
i love love this sweater layered over the denim. you look, as usual, just ridiculously adorable.

Keira said...

How CUTE are you?! I feel like only you could pull off a sweater vest this effortlessly.

And I definitely learned a lesson from this post when it comes to apologizing to hubs. Thanks ;-)

Linda said...

I am totally wearing this shirt today. :) You have good taste!
