Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, July 7

Boots: Hunters, Shorts: Gap, Top: F21, Denim Top: American Eagle
Awkward:
- We're just gonna be real here: How many times I've peed my pants. I laugh ... I pee. I sneeze ... I pee. Husband looks at me ... I pee. My laundry pile is NOT cool yo. A nudist colony is looking like the best thing since sliced bread right about now. Or maybe just a large diaper.
- My ability to sleep sitting up. It would probably freak anybody out if they came into our room at night. Namely, husband. But to defeat acid reflux, back cramps AND sleep at the same time. I consider it a proud moment.
- Having your car guarded by an army of sprinklers. Only to have them turn off the second after you make your flying leap through them and wet your pants YET again. It's not pee this time guys! Swear!
- Me and mister sniffles. Trying to sleep. We're one of those sexy couples right now. The ones with the humidifier blasting and 4923084 kleenexes piled around us while we lay there with our mouths open and cough pathetically. A cold AND allergies? It's like a dream. A big sexy dream.
- The swimsuit situation right now. My tots fall out of one, and my tummy out the other. Again, the nudist colony comes to mind.
- Saying something QUITE hilarious. Only to have the lucky recipient of this hilarity say "Whaat?" three times, until they finally hear it and say "oh" with a barely-there complimentary "ha".

Awesome:
- Not being able to feel baby move for a few days, lying on my back with a glass of water prepared to knead, massage and wait it out, and then feeling several strong rolls and kicks not long after. He knew I was worried, the little squirt.
- My belly button slowly turning into a flat swirl. Try and get in there NOW fuzzies!
- Expecting to go to dinner with some new friends for a few hours and then staying there for six. Its so bitter sweet to make such great friends with such great conversations, only to know that you're leaving in a few weeks.
- The BEST {kinda maternity} photo shoot we had with our fave yesterday evening. She's a genius guys. I can't wait to show you!
- Getting to hear the little guy's heartbeat again through my cousin's stethoscope.
- Husband rating my leg shaving time table. "Eh." he inspects, "you could probably go for a couple more days. Just leave it"
Isn't he the dreamiest?
- Only TWO more weeks till I walk across that stage and swipe my degree with an evil laugh and run off on the other side. I might even throw a "what now suckas?!" in there for good measure.

I have serious wellies envy going on right now! Adorbs. There's no hiding that cute bump now...you look AWESOME (but you know that!) and this is weird (pls don't judge) but in that last pic you look kinda like my mom did when she was young. Happy Thursday! :)

Glocal Girl said...

Pregnancy suits you! Congrats on graduating, everyone was always sad at mine but I definitely had your emotions of grabbing my diploma and going running in the other direction :) The future has so much in store for you! So cliche but true....!

Cheers,
Jeanelle @ Glocal Girl

debbiecutieface said...

Ugh, I pee all the time and I'm not even remotely pregnant...I can't imagine what that's gonna be like...

Ana @My (Newly)Wed Life said...

A husband that told you you don't need to shave. That's a keeper!

Your bump is really starting to pop! I'm super happy your little bundle starting moving around after I you started to worry. Also, your hubby rating your leg shaving is hilarious!

wildchild said...

Jessica said...

I LOVE your awkward and awesome Thursdays, i literally just laughed out loud...if I were pregnant, I would have peed a little at all your awkward, seriously you are too funny! As I am typing this I am reading your awesome and just laughed harder. Thank you for making my Thursday just that much better. :)

Tiffany said...

You are the most adorable pregnant girl!! Now peeing your pants, I did it the whole 8 months (my youngest was 4 weeks early), but mine was mostly caused from throwing up 2-5 times a day. Which was usually followed by uncontrollable sobbing. When it would happen because of sneezing or laughing, I didn't mind it too much!
BTW, Your hair ROCKS!

Alysson said...

you look so adorable!!! enjoyed your awkward/awesome lists! XO

Dude, A&A Thursdays are the best part of my week. I laugh out loud because I have so many of these things happen to me.

Right after me and my hubby got back from our honeymoon, we were getting back from church, and BAM, I had to pee REALLLLLY bad. So I got out of the car...and I couldn't hold it anymore. I guess I was a little loosey goosey if you know what I mean.
Pee was coming down my leg, on to the sidewalk, in front of our apartment. THAT was awkward. And I think we just laughed really hard. I can't even imagine what I'll be like when I am prego.

Alexandria said...

You never fail to make my day significantly more hilarious. Please, keep it coming.

Katya said...

The awkward and awesome posts are my fav! I love how you've inspired so many others girls to do their own. Now, I look forward to Thursdays! :)

Rachael said...

Cute photos! Love your shirt!
That's funny what you said about saying something funny and the other person not hearing it and then they give a lackluster response. That's happened to me.

E.C. said...

LOL! That last one made me laugh so hard :) Congrats on graduating girl!

LizMarie said...

I am a new follower and I simply think you. are. amazing. I literally laughed out loud while reading this. LOVE your personality. :)

Jenni Austria Germany said...

Joy said...

I freakin' love you, man. hahahaHA

Mary Kate said...

I had a good laugh about the fact everything makes you pee - It reminds me of being around my sisters during their multiple pregnancies. Anyway, cute outfit! I love the boots!

CessOviedo said...

Yay for the baby rolling and kicking that means he's in good shape, about the nudist colony, don't please, we love to see your mommy outfits!

Karri said...

Oh honey - you gotta get you a new bikini. Show off that beautiful belly while you can. I got the greatest maternity bikini from Gap. It sat under the belly in the best spot. And the top covered the ladies just perfect.

Rachel said...

You're lips POP! You look great.

tarynn said...

I've got a hot tip for ya! I always bought a long exercise top and used it for a bathing suit top. At TJ Maxx I had a lot of luck finding an inexpensive one. That way noth the belly and the girls were covered :) I also sport a bra underneath. good luck- a preggy girl needs her pool!

Leah said...

You look so beautifully pregnant. Your hair is getting super long too, love it.

Your baby bump is just so cute!

Sarah said...

Wow, your graduation is SO late! Can't wait to see a picture of you with your diploma in your hot little hand.

I hope I have such a great sense of humor about pregnancy when I have little ones :-)

samnhal said...

It's crazy how big your bump got in such a short amount of time. It seriously looks like you have a cantaloupe up your shirt. Now that would be awkward.

Krista said...

What a cute momma-to-be outfit! The shaving comment made me laugh out loud! And congrats on graduating! That's such a wonderful feeling :)

Congratz on the diploma swiping. Mwa ha ha ha!

The Michelle Show said...

You look beyond gorgeous, I can only hope my bump looks like that!

Have you tried panty liners to combat the peeing? I have been told many times!

AlishaLoren said...

Thank you so much for sharing your jouney with us - it reminds me of where my husband and I were just a few short years ago, waiting for that amazing first baby. So special and exciting. And you're looking fabulous btw.

Kelly said...

You hair is getting so long. Of course, you're pregnant! You look beautiful! Keep on keeping on, pregnant one!

Joanna said...

For the peeing thing - try doing Kegels! They strengthen the pelvic/vaginal muscles so you don't have that incontinence, and they are also the muscles you use during birth - so the stronger the better!

Adin B said...

I hear you with the pee-ing thing. LOL! I was sick like couple of months ago and I was like about to buy an adult diaper for peeing so much (TMI?). Sanitary napkins don't hold it anymore, but I still wear it everyday. Just incase. LOL! Pregnancy sometimes is just a weird experience, but fun and worth it. :) I am 5 months pregnant with my second child and it's a blessing. Take care!

Whitney & Devin said...

Love this post!!! Your hair is so long and lovely!! And your outfits are always inspiring!! Prego and all!

kristin said...

Orange juice gets them moving! It worked for me every time. About 30 minutes after you down a glass they start dancing around. I also had a home dopple ($75 on ebay) because sometimes I just had to check in, especially before the kicks started.

Caterine said...

hahaHA! i love it! so glad baby is doing great. Have you tried putting a plate on your tummy to see if he'll kick more? (my mom used to do that to us, she said it worked every time)

I LOVE you and your blog. I just discovered you last week and Can't stop reading. Pretty, and funny! Love, Love LOVE it!

Lindsay Dickson said...

I think we both need the thalassic coast striped flats. A must for mom to be!

hotpants™ said...

If you pee this much now, just wait until after the baby. It gets much worse. :)

Bellesme said...

Your top looks great for the 4th of July =)
LOL I saw your tweets about peeing.. oh god, I hope that doesn't happen in public =P
Btw, loooove your hair! it looks amazing (not that it doesn't always look amazing) but here it has such nice waves, the color looks nice and its smooth and shiny.

alex said...

Aw, your bump is way too beautiful!

Candice said...

Do lots of kegels!! It works wonders pre and post pregnancy ;))

geri e. said...

That whole sneezing/peeing conversation may have been my favorite moment of the entire shoot!!! (that or the crazy llama).

You guys are both awesome and the photos are beeeautiful—can't wait to get back and go through them all!!!!

dinamita.paquita said...

that is just pretty and lovely!!!

Angelika said...

Hello! I just got the wellies you are wearing. They are great BUT they have a very strong plastic smell... Is this normal? Did this happen to you too? Or should I send them back and ask them to replace them?

Thanks for getting back :)

Sofia said...

Most adorable pregnant lady ever. You win.

A Girl Named Miss Kate said...

YOUR SO CUTE!!! I LOVE YOUR SHIRT AND BELLY!!!

Alli said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE it. This was a hilarious post and I love your honesty. My favorite may be the Mr's rating of the leg shaving table. Seriously, when I'm pregnant (in years to come) I won't be WORKING to shave my legs. Leaning over will be so much work. Hah!

Hey!

I´ve a fairly new reader, just made it all the way here when I had to stop. And say. Really lovely blog! I like how it´s about life, not just your daily outfits like so many blogs nowadays. And the positive attitude really made an impression on me. :-) I guess you get this a lot but I just wanted to let you know. Great weekend from Finland!
