Awkward and Awesome Thursday!!

Wednesday, June 15

Top: UO, Dress: c/o Shopmamie Boots: Hunter
Awkward:
- Flinging open the door the second the post lady and my box of Hunters got to my porch. "I've been waiting for you" has never sounded creepier
- The girls were kinda bigger than the corset top of this dress allowed for. You know what I mean ... that awkie underboobage ... but hey, I didn't have to wear a bra so what do I care? Besides. It'll be perfect for after the babe sucks their coolness away. Tear.
- This random guy sizing up my outfit yesterday says to me, "I bet you're a cat lady aren't you?" K. #1 Who are you? #2 I bet YOU'RE  a cat lady ... And you're not even a lady! BAM!
My retorts need some work.
 - Sleepwalking. To go "lock" the front door ... or rather unlock it. I am a sleeping Creeper McCreeperson. And poor husband. He's the sleeping Sherlock Holmes.
- The #$@! bugs that keep biting in all the wrong places. Bugs, it's cool if I itch my arm ... so feel free ... bite my arm. Bugs, it is not cool if I itch my armpit. Then I look like some kind of an orangutan. Oh yes ... a pregnant orangutan. The kind that people look at and say, "It's her again. The itchy one .... everybody ruuuuuuuuuuunnnnn." And then they run.
- Listening to "cool people" music and starting to dance. And then remembering this maternal bump I have growing on me. Apparently, "shorty" is not able to get lo, lo, lo anymore. Shorty will resume getting lo in approximately 5 months.
- Oh yes. And I wore this shirt twice in a row. I just moved three spaces, right into style blogging jail.

Awesome:
-  Walking around on a perfectly sunny day in my new green rain boots. Knowing that the SECOND an evil rain drop even thinks about falling, I have the ability to karate chop it in the head.
- Catching husband reading his daddy book. And HIM bringing up the topic of our birth plan and what kind of ENVIRONMENT we want in our birthing room. Who is this person?
- A freshly detailed car. What is it about them that makes you want to sit on a grocery sack with your feet in the air?
- When husband felt our babe move for the first time this week, it transformed the babe from an "it" to "the three of us".
- The campout we're going on tomorrow!! yipeeeeeeee
- This kid of ours is a crazy person when I'm hungry. That's how husband knows that at 2 in the morning, I will easily down two cheese sticks, a bowl full of cottage cheese and strawberries and a bunch of trail mix ... even if I don't know it. Of course, followed immediately by two pees, and a still tummy
= baby's happy

Haha when I was younger, I was partly still asleep and when I looked in my parents room to see if my dad was there, I didn't see him (even though he was there). So I went downstairs, opened the door and walked to my neighbors house. That was fun for my dad! lol damn sleepwalking

I'm always waiting for the postal worker to knock on my door when I'm expecting a package. I'm the most impatient person ever! Most of the time I'm right at the door just waiting for them to knock. I think it would creep them out too much if I opened the door right when they got there without them knocking first....

Petunia said...

You're hilarious! Fully enjoyed this post. And FYI, you make being preggers look way too cute! Love the dress :)

I used to hold whole conversations with people while I was asleep when I was a kid. Apparently I would even open my eyes. CREEPIEST EVER!

I'm so jealous of your Hunters. They're beeeeautiful. I may need to investigate a pair... after all, we get a lot of rain in London!

linda said...

It's so fun seeing your great fashion sense not skip a beat now that you're pregnant...you have a gift & we get to share in it, yay!

Charlotte said...

...I'm kind of scared of blogger jail, is it a terrible place where you're never allowed to look at Pinterest!?

*shudder*

Frannie Pantz said...

Your awkward/awesomes make my day happy! I am so excited to find out the sex I can barely stand it!!!! BTW-I think boy. You sound like you are craving the same things I did with my two boys. My daughter made me puke every single day.

Holly said...

i love this post! and p.s. have fun on your campout!!

Rissy said...

I love the pics where the baby bump is displayed! you look fantastic Sydney!

Why in the world would a guy say you look like a cat lady? I think the response of "you look like a cat lady" would have been AWESOME!

I eat at 2am and am not pregnant... what does that say about me.

And big aww to Tyson!

Awkward: Standing in the beauty aisle with tortillas, guacamole, cabbage, and a can of black beans in my hands while trying to swatch/test some new foundation I want. Awesome: I managed to only drop the can of beans twice. Discount?

Bellesme said...

Hahah I love al the pregnant awesome and awkwards.... =P
Bugs biting your armpit is hilarious- I laughed so much for that one my tummy hurt... "pregnant orangutan" xD
Btw that dress is cute! IT looks nice with the boots.

London said...

How on earth did you get a bug bite in the armpit? My hubby keeps missing the baby kicks. We just saw the little "guy" on ultrasound and Papa couldn't stop smiling. Luv it!

Beth Ann said...

Okay, um...wow!! Haha, I love these pictures! You and your outfit are so cute. :) And so is the baby bump.. ;)

Allie said...

I have the same boots in the same color!! But my pair are uneven :( one is taller than the other and the Hunter label is different colored too! So I have to bring them back...

Emily said...

Love your outfit! You'll have to let us know if you find a super cool campout spot. :) Glad you got the hunters! PS the itchiness could be worsened by your pregnancy. Might be worth asking your MD.

samnhal said...

Some random guy just said that he thinks you're a cat lady? How bizarre! Why would he even say that? Those hunters are so great!

Sweet Susy said...

the way you explained the cat lady incident made me Laugh so hard...BAM! lol...you look so pretty! Im glad ur hubby is preparing to be a awesome dad =)

genevieve said...

Aw, Syd! I'm loving those sweet boots! I couldn't bring myself to spend 100+ on rain boots, but I might have to revise that decision... They're practical, gosh darn it! Or at least, that's what I tell myself. Enjoy karate chopping those raindrops, lovely!

Laura said...

Awkward and awesome is the best thing about thursdays. no question. L x

Neris said...

LOve your outfit! So jealous of your HUNTERS... I need to get me some ASAP!

wildchild said...

goodness. he is just the sweetest husband to you :)

Michele said...

Random guy calling you a cat lady! That made me giggle, as did your retort.

I am so very happy/joyful/excited for you both! Scratch that...for all three of you! Cannot wait to see more of your little family as the weeks go by :)

brooke said...

i love wearing rain boots everywhere! especially church!

Kristin said...

You're looking so pretty and cute as a pregnant lady. Even with your underboobage. Haha. Made me laugh.

Marjorie said...

Can't wait to hear what your having! I wish I had rain boots :)

kirtley@ the ink hotel said...

I love it. Your husband is so sweet to you :)

Annie said...

You and your husband are wonderful, and how great that he's reading a book about being a daddy. It's not all intuitive - the mommy stuff or the daddy stuff and it's way cool that your wonderful hubby is taking such an active role right by your side! Man oh man treasure these moments because they go by soooooooo fast. I have a five-year-old and a fourteen-year-old. That translates to one starting kindergarten in the Fall and one starting high school. Yikes!!! I'm going to be a puddle of tears. And one more thing to share: being a mama is the single most amazing thing life can offer. Seriously. It's an adventure of the best kind: tender, loving, crazymaking, and INCREDIBLE. Joy, pure joy. That is what children are. My dad told me that so many people seem to think about parenthood in terms of the things they'll give up but for him the greatest realization was how much having children broadened his horizons in ways he couldn't have imagined before becoming a parent. I still remember every detail of the birth of my girls all these years later as if it was yesterday. You are blessed. Cheers!

Phil and Bri said...

Hey, I am a blogger and now 39.3 weeks pregnant. Love your blog and you are super cute by the way. As you take pics of yourself make sure somewhere on the post you put what week you are. Because looking back it is so hard to remember, obviously you could do the math with the date, but that is no fun! haha! I know you didn't ask for advice...sorry! haha!

Estell said...

You look amazing,you little baby maker! I hope you don't hate me for not doing awkward and awesome still. I can't keep up with the awesomeness >.>

Salina and Olivia said...

Its actually sad how excited I get when I see your awkward and awesome posts :)
You guys are going to be such an adorable and stylish family... can't wait to see how your non-maternity clothing throughout pregnancy turns out! So far... so good!

The part about shorty getting lo made me laugh out loud...at work. (Don't worry I was on lunch!)

Katya said...

At first I thought "why wear rain boots if it's sunny!?" but I slowly came to the realization that I'd probably put them on too, as soon as they arrived and maybe even sleep in them. So go you!

this time is a charm

Rachael said...

You are so not a cat lady!
Love how your dress really shows your bump! Of course that's probably why you wanted to wear it, but just supporting you in that decision.
That made me laugh about the 'getting lo lo lo'!
Oh, and your husband is funny. In a good way.

thedemuremuse.com said...

THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY!! I laughed so hard at the cat lady conversation. Oh my gosh, I need to go run and tell some dude he's a crazy cat lady now.

littlebitobsessed said...

Can I just say that I absolutely love your blog. You and your husband are just such nice and bright cheery people and reading this always brightens my day. You have inspired my to create my own blog about the house I am flipping. Thanks!

Madi Rose said...

I'm here at work at my own little desk, laughing to myself. That was funny. I laughed out loud making myself look like a complete freak. Thank you for that. :)

Sherrel said...

Diggin’ the rain boots

Genuine Lustre said...

Trust me. Your breasts will be so much cooler when they get a little nursing under their belts.

Taylor said...

OH MY GOODNESS! I haven't been to this blog in at least a month maybe more and I'M SO EXCITED to see that you're pregnant! This is beautiful! May God bless your little family! You inspire me and I'm SUPER happy for you! You guys will do great!

Hayley Laura said...

lol I know that after a long day of running around with my little one, I can always crawl into bed, relax and have a good laugh reading your blogs before going to sleep. SO glad you blog, since it's a great finish to a fantastic day being a mom. :) Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, although I know you will :P

Sarah loves it all said...

I love your baby bumpness. So sweet. And yes. That baby will suck every bit of oompf, sex appeal, youth, perkiness, etc. outta those girls. It's so worth it though. Nursing is seriously one of my favorite bonding things ever.

Jen said...

You are pretty much the cutest preggo EVER. Congratulations to you both, again.

Grace, Money Smart Fashion said...

I love how you layered the shirt under the dress to make it work! genius.

congratulations on the the pregnancy.

Desirae said...

hellien said...

I just got my hunter boot too! I know how you feel about them - now I'm super excited when it rains! Yay it's a rain boot day!
