Awkward and Awesome Thursday!!

 Awkward
  • The lengths I'll go to for my current, undying craving for sour Jelly Bellys. First, I call the Chevron station. {normal people call gas stations all the time to quiz them on the status of their candy stock} They got nothin'. So I call Albertsons and Wal-mart. Both store's associates equally amused that they get to traipse down the isles hunting for my food-choice-of-the-day. Turns out, they got nothin' either. So now I'm getting desperate. Which is usually the part when Amazon pops into my brain. Amazon ends up rocking it in the Jelly Belly department, and I seriously consider the pros and cons of purchasing a 5 lb case of delightfulness. I think about husband's face when he finds out about the extraordinary plan I came up with, and I decide that I better think a little more. And that's when things got really serious -- I went to Jelly Belly dot com. That's right, www.jellybelly.com. I am ashamed.
    But I was delivered! Because Jelly Belly dot com has this special thing where if you type in your zip code, you can find out where all the little Jelly Bellys are hiding from you! And I FOUND ONE. One whole bag just for me. At a craft store. 
    *now would be an appropriate time for applause. or yaaay sydney's 
  •  The grocery bag husband brought home chucked to the brim with broccoli. I'm going to be peeing green for the rest of my life. *also an appropriate time for applause and yaaay sydney's
  •  That I can't tell whether it's baby or my chicken nuggets kicking me in the stomach. Probably the chicken nuggets.
  • Running into new friends while looking fabulous. "Hey! You're that one blog girl! I almost didn't recognize you in that huge Yellowstone t-shirt with chocolate on the front of it. With your hair like that ..." SO. For all those living in the vicinity -- how about we just keep those expectations at an all time low. With no signs of rising anytime in the near future. Sound good? Perfect. {or as our dear bachelorette would say, per-FACT}

Awesome
  • Iced herbal sun tea - yum!
  • My new green Hunters that are on their way! You convincing devils ...
  • Did you know that vegetarian dinners are actually really filling? Holy Smanoley - tomatoes and greens baby. and salt and pepper - the other major food group.
  • My new favorite deli does free deliveries ... whaaaaaa??
  • OK. Too much food talk. That means my time's up.

Joy said...

Is that your pee pee dance, girl? hehe It looks very familiar :) I love these posts of yours. I find myself making mental notes of the awkward things throughout my day. "Oh, that'd be a funny one to tell everybody" Cheeseballs, I know. I'll jump on the A+A Thursdays here in a minute. Thanks for the idea. xoxo

BL said...

That is my favorite maternity outfit of all time! You look so beautiful and hip - and you're drawing attention to your little bump without sacrificing style. Awesome.

It's the number one law of the Fashion Universe: When you look amazing you never run into anyone of note. But when you look awful you run into anyone you have met over the course of your life.

I have to admit, I wouldn't have thought to call the craft store for candy. Good thing there are product finders.

AJD ∞ said...

You are totally GLOWING in these photos. I love it. You're look FAB. That's right, I said it. & I don't mind the food talk. I may not be pregnant, but I feel like I am with all of this food I'm drooling over and ingesting at lightning speed.

Emily said...

You are so pretty! I love that you're finally getting hunters and you found your jelly bellys. I actually have your broccoli problem with asparagus. Anyway, the only time I see people I know (besides church, b/c that's a given) is when I'm wearing the same thing I wore yesterday and am in need of a shower.

Kassie said...

You're looking good!

Jelly beans is a good choice.

When I was pregnant I wanted pickles...three kinds...I got them all! Cravings are so weird, but good!

Copper Diem said...

I am proud of your jelly belly tenaciousness. but then again, i paid $50 to get the VIP tour of the jelly belly factory because i love them so much (hey, there were bean samples involved!) so maybe i'm biased.

Anita said...

Now you're making me crave those jelly beans! Especially sour ones... yum!

Fashionably Learning To Be said...

You look so cute! I love your witty posts ;). I'm so glad that you found jelly bellies!

Jen said...

That skirt looks so comfortable!

And I'm extremely impressed that you tracked down the jelly beans at the craft store. Awesome. :)

Sharon said...

I love my Hunters, you will too!! Great purchase!!

turn that frown upside down said...

Oh! Now you have me craving all sorts of things! Also, as usual you are adorable and make me smile - love that vest.

Tysie said...

I hear you on the Jelly Belly's - I too CRAVED them when I was pregnant! And regular Jelly Belly's would not do - they HAD to be SOUR!!! It's crazy right? I say go for the bulk order (or if there is a Target nearby, they have a Jelly Belly "wall of bliss" - LOL!

They will tell you what local stores have them? That's awesome! You need a target, they usually have them in bulk. I went to the factory last month and am so sick of them, because between 6 of us we bought 12 pounds. Darn those cheap belly flops!

hayley said...

you are so so cute- i'd like to squeeze you! AW mommy!

wildchild said...

so many yay sydney's! sounds like you're having a grand old time being pregnant. and you look cute doing it, so... awesome.

renata said...

i was just talkin about filling veggie meals, a friend was saying she couldn't eat just veggies, but i've been vegetarian for 6 months now and i have never ever felt hungry after a meal, evah!

You look way cute with that bump, ah! ;)

Susan Borland said...

mmmm, makes me want to buy a maxi skirt.
After becoming a new fan a few days ago, making my first bun on a tutorial with lipstain on in my bed at 1030...MY poor husband. I also read him the awesome and awkward things that happen to you. This time I just made him listen to running into the "blog girl" - as he walked out the door shaking his head I ran after him and said "SHE WATCHES THE BACHELORETTE, TOO!!!" I think we WILL be friends.

Btw - what are hunters?

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

heyyyy girl! - sorry i haven't been around much - been so busy with my Mom (cancer) ... i didn't know u were preggers - CONGRATS - i ALWAYS enjoy coming by here and seeing what ur wearing and the funny things u got to say ...

holtkamp said...

love your outfit! once again, it's one only you could pull off. and your bump is adorable :)

Michelle Xo said...

HAhaha I laughed at the big yellow Tshirt comment. I had someone at the mall recognize me from YouTube while I was walking around with a bun on top of my head, no makeup and breaking out. I felt really sexy and confident too.....

Kristin said...

You're so cute! I adore everything about your blog :) You have me laughing all the timmeee!

London said...

Your hair is getting so beautifully long! I'm jealous over here in short-mid land with nothing to do.

Sara B said...

haha you're awesome. and sooo cute!! love that little baby bump!!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

love your hair like that. i think you look best without bangs! esp with the cutey braid (or in this case, braid-ish thing).

oh and personally? i think veg. dinners are the best choices, usually. ESP when salt & pepper play a big role.

Pearl said...

Congratgulations!
I didnt know you were prego.
hottie mama to be.
ENjoy every moment of it.
It will fly by fast!

Kate said...

i have green hunters and let me tell you.... they're worth it! hooray for cute boots!

Stevie Leigh said...

You are the cutest pregnant woman alive!

Roxy said...

I don't know how you're still rocking belts! Once I neared the end of my 1st trimester, I couldn't belt anything anymore. If I loosened it enough to feel comfortable while sitting down, it would fall to my hips when I stood up. I was constantly adjusting so I just gave up.

You make that baby bump look good :)

Zelina Garza said...

you look so cute with a lil belly. I'm on the hunt for a maxi skirt just like that and in white :)

Mrs. C said...

Ok I loved you before but after the Jelly Belly adventure you just went up in my books! Super stylish preggers! Even if town people don't say so...lol.

Look how cute you are! I have been traveling and so busy I havn't done my blog hopping. I told some friends about you today and clicked to see that you had a bump...I missed the announcement, congrats!

Jessica said...

Don't feel guilty about the Hunters, girl! I bought myself a pair back in December 2010 after moving to Boston, and I wore them for like two months straight this Winter when the ground was slush city. Definitely worth the money, my friend!

P.S. I love your jelly belly story! That sounds like something I would do. Back in high school I used to drive to this Hobby Lobby 20 minutes from my house because it was the only place that sold my favorite pink wintergreen candy!

Amanda said...

We live an hour away from the Jelly Belly factory!! Such a fun place - with free samples!! Wahoo!

Corinne Chidester said...

It's not fair how beautiful you are pregnant.....
Ok, maybe it is. :)
Jealous.

kelseywilliams said...

Sour Jelly Bellys are the besttt! And I once did order a 5 lb. box of Gobstopper hearts (the ones they only sell around Valentine's Day) on Amazon because I just HAD to have them! Ha. Then two weeks later they showed up...

cait said...

I think you've got the cutest bump I've ever seen!

Pregnancy looks so good on you. And your hair is looking amazing. Love this outfit. So much.

Emily Maren said...

I love the jelly belly thing, You know you can visit the jelly belly factory where you can take a free tour and taste any kind you want and buy bags of irregular jelly bellys on the cheap. Sooo..think about that for your next get-a-way huh?

muffy_mouse16 said...

lol you have to be the cutest dressed preggo lady ever! I wish I could rewind 4 years ago and dress a little less "preggo"

Team Babb said...

I honestly hope I look as adorable when I get preggers :) You may crave those jelly beans but I crave looking at this stinkin' awkward and awesome blog every day!! ;)
Have a blessed day, ma'am!

You are the most adorable prego I've seen. Proud of you for getting the green rainboots. They will last forever and you can even pass that on to your mini bean :)

Tiffany said...

Do I get to say yaaay Syd now? Because, seriously, that jelly bean story made my day. And for reals, what's up with craft stores these days? You go in for paint and all you can find are ribbons, bedazzling jewels, and bubbles. because I plan to paint my room with bubbles and shiney stuff, thank you.

You are glowing in that third picture, and it really did make me smile. You look adorable!

Becca said...

Did you have to pee in that second pic? I hear that's a common problem in pregger people. (don't worry, it was a rhetorical question)

Also, I love this outfit! Looks so comfy, and that vest is pretty spiffy.

Also, you and your jelly bellys are too cute. Happy weekend, Sydney!

Good God! You look adorable!

JENN said...

So I'm officially going to place bets on you having a boy. Why? Because you are craving sour! I have an awesome 6-month-old baby boy and I craved anything and everything sour when I was pregnant with him. I was a cheer coach last summer & raided all of my girls' rooms at cheer camp for something sour to eat! Are you finding out the gender? We didn't but I knew he was a boy all along :o)! Good luck!

amyface said...

oh dear girl :) have you not discovered florences chocolates here in rexburg? they have a GINORMOUS selection of jelly bellys :) you should check it out! it's behind gringos. <3

i think you need to check on whether or not broccoli is good for you when you're pregnant. i seem to remember hearing something about it not being good for pregnant women!!!

Emily Camp said...

Oh my heavens! you're a bust up! But I totally get it! I just had a baby in Feb. and for the last two months of my pregnancy I had to have tropical Mike and ikes and skinny cow drumsticks EVERY SINGLE DAY. One day walmart had mike and ikes on sale so i think i bought about 10 boxes at once (i'm now paying the consequences)!
