Awkward:
- Pepperoni's. And what they do to Husband when we have company over
- That middle picture. Me thinks we won't be doing anymore backwards shots for a while.
- The fact that I still don't completely understand what #FF means on Twitter. That and all the other new tags that people come up with and suddenly everyone knows what they mean except for me.
- The fact that whenever the dog makes a stinky, alllll the boys suddenly look at me and say, "Syddneeeyyyyyyyyyy". What the crap huh?? Who made you all the stinky police? And since when have I ever smelled that bad in my entire life? I'll tell you when: 
NEVER. That's when. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, punks
- Sitting in a swimsuit, poolside, blowing my nose hardcore. All of the swimming mommies were gathering their children away from me like I was death itself or something. Not that I blame them. My nose did look like it was about to kill itself.
- This problem I have with my nails polish. See, if one nail chips off a little, suddenly they all have to go. But this is done pretty much subconsciously. So I'll be sitting there, and then I'll look down and be like, what the?? WHO scraped all my nail polish off? And why is there a sparkly mess in my lap? 
It's very confusing.
- Baby nephew wanting to touch the belly buttons of the lingerie clad mannequins in Kohls yesterday. Can't say that I blame him, they were perfect belly buttons.
- Speaking of belly buttons. They're awkward.
- K just picture for a second that one scene in Sleepless and Seattle with Meg Ryan and her boyfriend. And they're laying in bed and she can't sleep, and he's got his humidifier going and his water glass and his mile high tissue pile and he's snoring a little. You got it? OK.
So I'm Meg Ryan.
- The fact that I'm pretty sure my brother-in-law thinks I'm turning 18 tomorrow.
- I Twitter while I'm sleeping. Kind of like Twittering when you're drunk, except so much better because the outcome is like 10 times more embarrassing.
{Um. By the way, I erased it though, so nobody go running over there}
- The way I DIE for IHOP. It's literally like that scene in Elf when Buddy finds out that Santa's gonna be at the store that day. SANTAAAAAAAAAA!! I'm telling you. There's jumping up and down. Fist pumps. The works. Except, of course I'm screaming IHOOOOOOOPPPPPPPP!! As opposed to SANTAAAAAAA!! You get it?  Cause I want to make sure you got this. Two words: IHOP giftcards. Ready, go.
Just kidding. Husband would die.

Awesome:
-IHOP for dinnnerrrrrrrrrr!! OK. I'm done talking about it now.
- My life. Sometimes I feel like it's one gigantic stress ball. But then I go on Christmas break, and suddenly me and life are BFFs again.
- When husband refers to me as a woman. I still don't feel like one. But when he says it, it's totally hot.
- His giggle. Did you catch it in the video yesterday?
- The fact that my Mom is surprising us with a visit to Idaho when we get back next week! HOO. RAH. You can expect a TRX tutorial video coming soon. And maybe a cooking tutorial too. Because I used to make those when I was little. And then you poor the butter in and begin whisking, like so ...
- Skyping my family on Christmas Day
- The fact that I'm paying money to go see a western re-make tonight. We'll see if that really does belong on the awesome list
- Making it a new years resolution to take a tropical vacation with Husband this year.
BEST. GOAL. EVER.
- KOHL'S! Are you kidding me with that place? 70% off the cutest stuff ever? I could die.
Especially over the fact that they don't have one where I live. I'm suing.
- The two days of sunshine we've had this last week. And the sunshine that's coming in my window right now. And the days that are getting longer as we speak. Hallelujah.

IHOP and sunshine. It can't get any better than that! :) You go girl. haaha.

angiemcgovern said...

Um, so, most of your awkward list and most of your awesome list could be mine. Especially, IHOP. Oh, IHOP! I love IHOP! In an awesome AND awkward way, my husband doesn't get it. (i'm a new-ish reader, btw and i love your blog!)

ab-on-wheels said...

Yeah... pretty sure that nail polish thing happens to me all the time. I don't know why I can't keep my nails painted for more than a couple days. Annoying and most definitely awkward! :-)

Kassie and James Rew said...

LOVE khols! Seriously, half my closet is from there...
sales are always awesome!

shanners said...

love it!
take a tropical vacation....one of my new years resolutions too!! such a good one!!

HunDuddle Hussy said...

IHOP always gives me the runs. every. single. time.

Corinna said...

i noticed yesterday that the days really ARE getting longer. that was a reallllly exciting realization.

Becca said...

I live in Rexburg too! Did you know there is a Kohls in IF?
Get your bum over there and shop girl friend!

Nuha Sofiyan said...

Haha I love IHOP too..it's actually where I met my husband. AND I posted my wedding pictures today too! Glad your feeling better... the thing about mommies taking their kids out of the pool is hilarious!

My awesome is definitely celebrating my two year anniversary with my best friend

Awkward - eating everything in site when your at a friends house because....well I'm not sure why I did that haha

Taylor Marie said...

Love your outfit! Awkward and Awesome are great as always :)

Taylor said...

Sydney, I love you awkward moments...they are hilarious. AND your awesome. Seriously awesome. Life and I are friends again too and I always am more attracted to my significant other when he refers to me as a woman. HOTT.

I'm enjoying your posts thoroughly and laughed hysterically at your sideways video.

Thanks, Taylor

Meghan said...

I've been saving my awkward moment since last week:

The furniture delivery man saying he talked to my dad on the phone and then having to correct him that that was my husband.

rlutz said...

Such fun photos today...love your fur vest, I have been on the hunt fot one with no luck!
mmm...IHOP french toast!

Caley said...

I love Awkward & Awesome Thursdays. Please don't ever stop them. Thanks. Also, Is the Western you're seeing True Grit? Thomas wants to see it, I'm not so sure, will you tell me if it's at all a girl movie? Thanks. Also, they have a Kohl's in IF...did you know that? I rediscovered my love for Kohl's last week before Christmas! Awesome! Ok, this is now a novel...sorry. Have a great New Year and awesome birthday! xoxo

sbodier_1 said...

Love it! So the nail polish thing...I'm the same. One second it's all bright and shiny and perfect...next...GONE!

Andrea said...

lmbo, my one year old LOVES belly buttons, too!

Emily said...

Yesterday my husband saw a 6 year old kid in a restaurant sucking on a pacifier. I can't decide if it's awkward or awesome, so I'm just going with both.

marissa said...

haha i love that scene in sleepless! also any scene that rosie o donnell is in!

American Honey said...

Yay!! My favorite day!
Your outfit is way cute!

Mission: Life, Objective: Live. said...

So here I am at work, and I literally LOL'd about the fingernail polish awkwardness, and let me emphasize on the OUT LOUD part. Everyone is now staring at me..now THAT is awkward lol.

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE your blog? Seriously. I feel like we are BFF's. :)

Rach said...

I love Kohls and actually just went there yesterday for the giant sale. Came home with tons of sweaters and tops for work. I also stocked up on their undies (but sooo much better and cheaper than Vickie's). Love. Love. Love.

Natasha said...

super cute pictures, pretty girl :-)

your awkwards are funny :-D

cailen ascher said...

i <3 kohl's too. i did so much christmas shopping there. spent $200, saved $300 - complete amazingness.

Berni said...

Sydney, you are adorable! Awkward and Awesome Thursdays are so much fun to read :) Your blog really is a little gem.

milk tea + polkadots said...

You're hilarious! I was just going through some of your archives. You had DARK hair!

Question..how do you post process so many of your pictures?? Do you have a super fast way of doing them all at once? Or do you actually Photoshop them one by one?

Sarah Katie said...

each day just gets better and better as the sun goes down a tad bit later each evening.

Favorite Verses said...

A couple of weeks a friend introduced me to your blog. I am the simplest dresser ever (I am all about black, solid colors, simple, simple, and even more simple when I have the day off). So, I enjoy seeing the fashion to get ideas. Even more I love to read your upbeat, funny comments. You write such cute, clever things. Thanks for posting so often!

CessOviedo said...

haha you might don't like it but I think your back shot was cute! ... Your fur's so pretty and so is your watch! loved it!

http://blog.cessoviedo.com

Rachel said...

Totally the exact same way with IHOP. I wish I had an excuse to go there every.single.day. But husband is no longer in school (he graduated) - his school and IHOP were right beside each other. It was the easiest thing ever to suggest lunch, 'cause it was right there. But, no more. Sad day.

♔Reyna♔ said...

Love this week's Awkward & Awesome List! literally LOL. (that means Laughing Out Loud.) j/k. btw: that pic of you in the middle w/ just your back made me laugh. You reminded me of my son when he's intentionally ignoring me. haha. oh yeah, and Kohls, totally rocks!

-Reyna

Brandilyn said...

maybe we should have a road trip to the kohl's in IF together...but only if you start missing world religions/my company :) also, LOVE it when david says, "my woman." i don't know why.

Erica said...

Breakfast is the best meal of the day. Have you ever heard what the comedian Jim Gaffigan says about IHOP? He says he never feels like hopping when he gets outta there. It should be named I-can-barely-move.

My fav place for breakfast? Cracker Barrel. Try it if you haven't already.

O O N A said...

wait love the fur vest. it's faaabulous
and umm what's going on with this mobile version of your page? (honestly, it's annoying)

No Guilt Fashion said...

You now what is awesome? Awkward and Awesome Thursday. You are pretty awesome yourself!
No Guilt Fashion

Ashley said...

mmm...IHOP. I used to work a job where I didn't get off until 10 or 11 so my boyfriend and I would frequently have IHOP dates at midnight on weeknights. The crowds were always interesting but we've had some of our best conversations over those cheap pancakes!

Also, for my awkward week - I had a guy at the place I went to for lunch yesterday give me 3 forks. For my lunch. That I wasn't planning on sharing.

And then I joked about it with a family that was there. Then, today at work (I work at a zoo), I saw the same family. As I was eating lunch. So now that sweet family from Kentucky probably calls me that Missouri girl who eats all the time.

Hadar said...

I have an answer to your Kohl's dilemma! Kohls.com! haha I just checked my email and I got one from them, it made me think of you.

Kai.Mercado. said...

You seriously are so funny. I usually don't have the attention span to read long blogs but yours are ALWAYS funny and entertaning...i love it

Ashley said...

Yep.. pretty sure we could be best friends simply because you LOOOOOVE IHOP too!!! :) :) Best breakfast food EVER!
Came across your blog through hunduddle hussy. LOVE IT! I was on the fine line of dressing like a mom and thanks to you I've backed away :) ha!

Sarah said...

LOVE Kohls. Love your awkward and awesomes. Love that its your bday tomorrow as well as mine! Its awesome that the whole world throws a party for us, isnt it?

Petchie said...

Love you awkward awesome this week, so funny! and I also love your outfit, cute fur coat!

just watched your video tutorial and it was super helpful!! i'm starting to do some fashion posts on my blog too so i guess i'll move my legs more hahah!

isn't kohl's awesome!?!? they have some super cute stuff on a budget, esp. the lauren conrad line!!! :) happy new year!!!

Ashley J said...

You are seriously the cutest person ever!!!! I heart your blog!

Kristen said...

you're too adorable. i love reading your blog. let me tell you this past week i was without a computer and i was going crazy not being able to read all my daily reads. you're one of my favorites!!

Linka said...

I'm definitely all for the tropical vacation with the hubby!!! Every now and then you have to get a way!!

mandorin86 said...

Im glad i am not the only one with nail polish delusions and bothers. The joke in my house is howlong my nail polish will last and bets are made.

skeletonisland said...

Love your blog! I've been checking it religiously for a while and thought I'd let you know:)

Ihop is definitely the best place on earth. Pancakes=appropriate for any occasion, any time of the day.

Another great thing about Khols is their return policy. No restrictions, whatsoever. You don't need a receipt, there's not a certain amount of time that you have to return the item before, and you don't even need to have the tags on the item! I honestly wish every store followed this return policy. I would shop a lot more.

Bellesme said...

Hahah Kohls is okay =)
#FF means Follow Friday so people tell their followers others to follow, like if you want your followers to follow me you would put #FF @bellesme and @ whoever else you want.
The #blahblahblah just means like something you are kind of trying to trend. It makes you cool. I think.
I know what you mean about life, Christmas break is so awesome, I don't want to go back =/
Bellesme

Ramsey said...

I totally just called boyfriend up to ask him why the sun was had not set at 6:00 so that he could verify that the days were, in fact, getting longer. Yay for a personal weatherman!

Awkward: My sweet mom telling everyone about my blog and then people coming up to me with, "Soooo...I read your blog...it's really cute, what do you post just like pictures of what you wear everyday?" cricket cricket. What do you say??? Awkward [in that high pitched litte voice].

Natalie said...

My hubby works for Kohl's. He's the shoe supervisor (best position for a hubby to have...EVER!). I love it because I know when everything is going on clearance and he comes home with shoes for me! What could be better?? :) I am feeling very sad for you that you don't have one near you. This breaks my heart. Everyone should have one near where they live!!

krisandkel said...

What AWESOME (for Thursday) photos these are!! I don't think the backwards one is awkward haha

amy lapi said...

i did the same thing when i was little.. pretend like i was on a cooking show... but i wouldnt whisk butter i would mix things like flour and baking soda and "burn it like so"...

ShopGirlXOXO said...

lovin that vest!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i love these posts. i get so excited when they pop up in my newsfeed (is that what it's called? facebook is taking over my life a little too much). that's all, goodbye.

evelyn said...

I'm totally going to Kohl's! My seven month baby boy could use some MORE cute clothes. Maybe I'll find something for myself... We'll see. I usually don't.

Erin said...

belly buttons are SO awkward. agreed.

the hat is from walmart? i will have to check this out.

http://heyrecklessmind.blogspot.com/

Lindsey said...

Bahahaha Love it-Love it! Not sure about IHOP; gives me the run-a-roos too (whoever said it)!

Awkward: Inviting another couple over for dinner- and your hubbie only knows them. Inviting anyone over for dinner other than family!

Ester Jean said...

1. I going to see the western re-make tomorrow night!
2. (The theater is directly across from both an iHop AND a Khols, neither of which I have graced with my presence in a while, but only because it's quite a little drive for us...)
3. Pshh I think I was the first person to comment on your husband's giggle from the video post. C-u-t-e!

Ester Jean said...

I went to check because I don't like being wrong, and I have to say - me: accidental liar. I was the second to comment on the giggle. Hmmph. Still cute.

linsey grae said...

Syd, how cute! love your pictures! oh and I LOVE awkward and awesome thursday because I love awkwardness! keep it up girl!

oh and ps. Melissa[yourperfectpeace.blogspot.com] and I [ticadedios.blogspot.com] used your awkward tutorial for our photoshoot today. Check them out!

myedit said...

When you find out what #ff means, please let me know.
Awesome is having the balls to ask what the heck it means.
Awkward is being 27 and not being able to ask what #ff means. That's it.

Dylana Suarez said...

You look lovely! And I LOVE IHOP for dinner!

I do the same thing with nail polish. S tells me I only paint my nails because I enjoy scraping it off so much...

christina said...

this is just a general comment but, thank you so much for writing this blog. it really, truly brightens my day.

elise said...

I went to IHOP today! It was divine. I got the new cinnamon roll pancakes. Ooooooh my they melted in my mouth. If that is not what you ordered when you went, you now have a really legit reason to go back. Just sayin'. :)

Shawntae said...

I love me some IHOP and their eggs benedict!!

Love all your outfits. You are the cutest everrrr!!!

Happy New Year. XOXO

C said...

Happy New Year to you to!
mmm...pancakes!!! :)

(we dont have IHOP in Barcelona, now talking about dramas!!!)

Best regards!

I'm the same way about this Mexican restaurant where I live as you are about IHOP.

Rissy said...

IHOP is the bomb dot com!

No Kohl's? that is stinkerific how dare! I definitely don't go to Kohl's enough...

Can't wait for the TRX tutorial so I can go out, buy one, and know what to do with it

I like how you've got the exact pose The Hussy did on you (the bum one)

Feathers said...

I'm totally with you when it comes to IHOP. I live like three blocks away from one, and I just discovered that their french toast is so good, it might beat the pancakes. And they decorate it so cute for Christmas. And in warmer weather, they have a Susie the Pancake mascot that stands on the corner and waves at all the cars. My boyfriend and I always try to guess if it's a girl or a guy in the giant pancake suit. Which is awkward AND awesome.

There is totally a Kohl's in Idaho Falls.

One of my best friends, Nicole, totally does the same thing with her nails. It's hilarious to watch the process "Who took my polish?!" ;)
