Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, March 10

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Shoes: c/o Threadsence, Jeans: F21, Top: H&M, Glasses: UO, Sweater: c/o ShopMamie
 Awkward:
- The serious throat-clearing sesh that went down with a very ... erm, flemmy gentleman in the silence of the art gallery. 4 minutes straight I tell you - I timed it. That's how impressed I was.
- Minding your own business in the shower, just washin your hair and suddenly looking up to discover two little eyes peering at you from over the curtain. Less awkward and more pee-your-pants creepy. It's about time I got him.
- Someone I don't even know calling me "little momma". Hi-nice-to-meet-you-I'm-Sydney-don't-call-me-that
- Someone telling me about how kissing his girlfriend who has a small, blond mustache is awkward. And I was beginning to think I'd never know what that was like.
- Sitting, minding my own business, just homeworking away when someone comes up to me ... "um . excuse me. could you move? Like maybe 3 seats down? You're in our picture." Awesome. Now everybody just silently stare me down as I pick up my giant pile of books, and laptop and purse and coat and gloves and move three giant seats down. Could not have been a better moment for me.  
- Taking a nap at 8:00pm. This is not awkward, this is just dumb.
- Shopping one day and coming upon this awful, {awful I tell you} smell ... making a comment about it and yes, maybe a stinky face grimace ... and then this woman makes eye contact with me and tells me she's sorry. Tell me, HOW am I supposed to respond to that.

Awesome
- Having a Skype date with one of my best blogger friends, Sarah. {Yes people. She is alive and well}
- The 4 week school-end countdown that is starting right. now.
- The 10 hours Husband and I had in the car this past weekend. And I only napped once.
- Bisquick batter
-Also, Carmel flavored rice cakes. They kinda taste like sweetened cardboard -- and I'm totally into it. 
- Only waiting one night, instead of three to do the dishes. It was a "look honey!" moment. 
- Dry shampoo -- You guys were right. It rocks your world.
- Husband: "Just think how perfect that would be with some red heels" ... I mean. The man knows me.
- Realizing that I'm probably gonna look back and really miss school and this stage in our lives. And that deleting my little rant post was a good idea ... Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts.

Link up your Awkward and Awesomes here!!

thobeka said...

the last awkward was hilarious! i'm in the office and boss-man just gave me a weird stare 'cause i burst out laughing :)

Nikki said...

haha, some are really funny ^^ I always enjoy reading tour A&A post :) x


Nice shoes by the way ^^

s|c|s|d said...

i leave a trail wherever I go ... moving down 3 giant seats is not an option unless you have an extra 15mins to wait on taking that picture!
& I can't help but get excited about road trips ... instant nap time!

Leticia Oliveira said...

Perfect dear!!

jamie @ kreyv said...

My faves are the look you got from the stinky lady, carmel rice cakes (love those), and that your husband can accessorize your outfits. Now, that's a match made in Heaven!

Nuha said...

Instead of deleting your "rant" maybe you could have made it private to only you? That way you get it off of your chest and you can go back and read it later. But kudos to you for not posting it...it will only bring more negativity :) I always say I'm going to do a no-negative comments challenge (with myself..) I want to try to replace all of my negativity with something that makes me happy. I think I'll start...right. now.

Mrs. C said...

These are so great!!! And taking a nap at 8pm just happens....I've done a lot!!! Add some chocolate chips to your Bisquit batter...really awesome!!!!! Check out my giveaway!!!

Meg Lynn said...

Laura Eve said...

That outfit is super great, and I feel like Rachel in glee sported that shirt on some episode... anyway super great!

I need some of that dry shampoo...

Kirsten said...

As exciting as moving on from school is, you will miss it. Graduated from the Y in December, and there was an honest mourning period. But, the excitement of starting something new is great too. You know you will look fabulous doing it.

kristin said...

Take it from me. As much of a pain as it seems now, Once you don your cap and gown and say sianara to school, you will have nothing but fond memories left when you look back!

Dylana Suarez said...

I always love your Thursday posts! And you are so cute in dots!

Ash Att said...

Another awesome: realizing I've been stalking a girl that I have pictures with from girls camp (which are totally awkward)

Lauren said...

So when I first started reading the sentence about 2 eyes looking over the shower curtain. One, I thought you were going to say it was a spider and also thought, "thank goodness someone else gets attacked in the shower by spiders."(it happens a lot to me). Two, read more and found that it wasn't a spider because I then remembered that spiders don't have 2 eyes. Then I felt embarrassed a little.

Emma Mary said...

What dry shampoo do you use? I've been looking for a good one.

squidney flowers said...

Great look! How comfortable are those oxfords? I checked them out on the website and I'm thinking about getting the gray ones for my trip to NYC.

Thanks,
Sydney (we kinda have the best name in world)

Mckenzie Jean Lund said...

hahahhaha
the lady in the store. How gutsy was she to admit it was her! I would totally have chimed in with you commenting about how awful it was.....even if I was the guilty. one

my bad.

Natalie said...

really? Move three seats down? I think thats a bit inconsiderate. :(
I probably would have done the same thing with the terrible smell. Somethings you just can't help, and for me, facial expressions are one of them. :)
This is my second week linking up! :)

PS said...

That cardi is aMAzing, love your outfit Sydney! Thanks for sharing your great moments, I always chuckle reading A&A on Thursdays. One day soon I'll share my own - although I feel like my list will be a bit Awkward heavy...being in a YSA branch gives a lot of chances to add to that side of the list ;) haha

katou said...

Lovely ictures, and your cardigan is just gorgeous!!!

Laura said...

You are right about missing this stage in your lives...

Gentri said...

Love it! Love everything! ESPECIALLY your sideswept bangs!! That lady in the store was completely awkward, and those people who asked you to move could have at least helped. Sheesh. Haha!

Vasilieva said...

such a lovely cardigan

Meisha Marie said...

My #1 awkward for the week: Lady in the bathroom stall next to me answers her phone! Who talks on the phone at a time like that?!

love your a/a thursdays

Sidewalk Ready said...

Adorable look. Just full of great pieces!

I will never again scare Kai when he is showering. He super soaked me. Now who's laughing? Certainly not me.

BryanaEllen said...

Oh no! Your awkwards are very awkward, you poor thing.

Also, dry shampoo is amazing!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

ok....your hair is looking super cute. and these posts make me look forward to thursdays.

Haili Hunter said...

So I had this fabulous idea. (if you read this comment). Your outfits, especially this one, are so so so adorable. Original, and just fabulous. You should have a contest of some sort,and whoever wins gets to pick one of your fabulous outfits as a giveaway!!! :). Yes I know I'm geniius. :). Ps ya never let me know if I can feature you on my blog. Let me know! Aaronandhaili@gmail.com

Sarah loves it all said...

SYD! I ALWAYS know when you give me hyperlink love because I always think my follower count has broken. Ha! I love you. I wrote my "coming back" post and I gave you a little hyperlink love too. It's the best way to say you love someone in the blogging world right? You really are my fav. I'll pay you for your time later. NOW for my AWKWARD: Purchasing some innocent little treats for a work meeting and having the woman behind me slide her "feminine douche" so close to my treats that it gets RUNG UP on my receipt by accident. Yes it was voided, but YES I had to turn the receipt in for reimbursement. Lets just say I made good use of a black sharpie marker.

Better told in real life eh?

Sarah loves it all said...

P.S. you are beautiful as always. I personally love that you decide to switch up your hairstyle.

Mommyblogger said...

Boy you do have some akward moments! Ha Ha, you cracked me up.

Rissy said...

my bestie and I just discovered video chat on gmail.. she only lives an hour away but it is amazing.

My dad is a serial throat clearer... it's basically constant.

I wouldn't be surprised if that stinky someone in the store was my mom. She is known for that type of thing. Also Sarah is my cousin! Glad she's alive and well.

Red heels and caramel flavored cardboard? Now you're speaking my language! I have always wanted to dry shampoo but never got around to it. I'm now thinking that it could just possibly change my life. Here's hoping! And I am new to your blog and simply adoring it. Just sayin xx

Awkward: Catching someone pick their nose at a stoplight, then having them catch you staring.
Awesome: Having a root beer float for the first time in about two years.
