Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, August 18

 Jeans: Gap, Top: c/o Threadsence
Awkward:
- Husband's late nights and early mornings resulting in me and my camera being left to our own devices. A la crap remote pictures. Cheers.
- Being the small town people we are, driving through our neighborhood and waving at our neighbors. You'd think we would have been simultaneously sticking our heads out the windows singing show-tunes at them for all the looks they gave us. Fine, crabbies. No small-town action for YOU.
- Looking at ma-self NEKED {What. You do it. Just cause you don't announce it to everyone you know ...} and coming to terms with the fact that my baby is now the shelving system for my tots. This will probably mortify him in about 12 years, but for now, he can just leave the mortification to me.
So attention attention, YOU UNDER THERE. This is a public service announcement: Stooooop. Growinggggggg.
Sincerely,
Me, Senorita Top Heavy
- Spelling "THERE" as "THEIR" in my post yesterday. And nobody said any - thing. You guys, this preggo brain's specialty is bad spelling and grammar right now. Normally, something that is one of my biggest pet peeves. I died a little inside. Help a sista OUT yo.  
- Bashing a poor old man in the head with my belly at the post office yesterday. He was about to get angry, but then he turned around and saw my little basketball, so he decided to rub it instead. I think I wish he'd gotten angry.
- Husband's phone/alarm dropping behind the bed in the middle of the night. Waking him up to move the bed and get it. Watching him from the bathroom as he paced the floors staring at the bed for a good 20 seconds.  
Hon, you have to move the bed. Your phone dropped.
Oh .... right.
So then he moves the bed. Only to stand at the end and stare at it.
Poor guy. I don't even want to know what a midnight diaper change is gonna look like.
- Attempting to wear Heidi braids and a pregnant belly at the same time. Hi. I'm 22 going on 14. Feel free to keep staring. I love it.

Awesome:
- I would just like to take a moment to recognize husband for always putting the toilet seat down. *cue pre-recorded cheers and applause soundtrack. We each have our own bathrooms now {because THAT'S how much I love scrubbing toilets} and not once have I gone into his very own manly-man of a bathroom and accidentally dunked my bootay in the poo water. Because he's just that good. Here's to YOU my toilet-seat superman. Muah!
- Laying in bed with said superman last night and giggling at my rolly-polly stomach. Baby is startin to make waves in there ... he let us see his big head and little feeters last night. Can't wait till we can give them kisses.
- The tour I just booked to go check out our big jacuzzi tub, luxurious private room, and soundtrack of relaxing music . Ahhhh ... doesn't giving birth just sound like a vacation!? HA.
HA. HA.
- The Five Guys and Panera that are parked right next to each other just down the street. Oh the conundrum.
- Having dinner cooked and ready when husband comes home every. night. 
Booyah baby!! I'm a house-wife now. WHAT.
{I give it three months ...}

I love your outfit - you look hot! And way to rock the house-wife. Nice work.
Much love,

Ana Magdalena said...

you sure know how to rock that belly!

becoming teacher misty said...

Your hair, your lipstick...dreamy Fall look. You are simply glowing. :)

BiblioMOMia said...

Super. Hot. Mama.

I totally cracked up at the old man belly rubbing, too. Hands off, people!

London said...

Old man belly rubs are soooo awkward. I am going through much of the same. "Yes peeps, there is a baby in there." Your remote pics are excellent. I need to do more baby belly documentation for prosperity and will try to follow your lead. Here is hopeing.

Bree said...

A Five Guys just opened around here! First time trying it, eh it was ok. And expensive in my opinion!

Mish Lovin' Life said...

A) Love the lipstick
B) I noticed the error of "there/their" yesterday, but didn't want to hurt your feelings by correcting.
C) Seems I'm going to have to start shopping at Threadsence. Me likey.

MJ said...

pregnancy brain goes away ... but is then replaced with mommy brain. and that is so much worse :) pregnancy looks great on you.

Stephanie and Such said...

5 guys and Panera Bread are dangerous next to each other!! Man Rexburg must be growing :)

And your little belly is too cute!!!

wildchild said...

nicole said...

I noticed the THERE, THEIR (obvs), but I didn't want to make you feel bad! (It happens.)

My most awkward discovery this week: Wearing a very nice dress to work one day then realizing: I'd only shaved ONE LEG that morning in the shower. One out of two ain't bad, right? xo.

Lulu Frances said...

lol i sooo love ur blog and ur texts are awesome, not akward, btw :) :D loving ur hair!

CessOviedo said...

Reading your Thurday's post is the highlight of my day, your new place looks great!

EB said...

this outfit gets me excited for fall! your hair color is looking awesome :)

De España said...

Ha ha, I totally noticed the grammar/spelling mistake yesterday... that's one of my pet peeves too, but I only correct people if I feel like I know them well enough. One time I was on vacation in Florida with my family (where my mom is from) and I was walking down the street and when I passed someone I said hi out of habit and they didn't say anything. I felt stupid and realized that people in Florida aren't as nice as people in Utah. Or at least that person wasn't. I love your hair color right now - I didn't notice when you changed it but I think you look really cute brunette. Makes me want to go dye mine brown/auburn now. And you look really beautiful in those pictures even if they were taken with a remote.

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

HAHA- you crack me up!
Love the jeans.

Sydney said...

You sillies!! I didn't change my hair ... it's ombre! :) Still blonde on the bottom :)

tessica said...

Ya for putting the seat down!

Whitney Stanek said...

Another awesome is how fantastic your hair has been looking lately!! You're absolutely the most adorable pregnant woman ever!

Mrs. DeVore said...

Love the new hair, you look beautiful! and I have those same jeans from Gap, definitely my favorite pair.

Becca said...

You are so funny! hat's half the reason I read..you crack me up! {no pressure} Additionally, you look gorgeous preggers!

Miss K said...

adahliavolk said...

Lauren Margaret said...

We wave to EVERYONE and NO ONE WAVES BACK until we get west of Haymarket and then everyone's friendly again. Sad to say, but in Northern Virginia you kind of get used to no one being that friendly waving neighbor.

In other news, I'm jealous that you're near Five Guys and Panera. I gave that up when I moved from Alexandria to Arlington last month and I miss it. Waah. And Chipotle! haha :)

By the by, I *love* your hair :)

Lou said...

Sydney you are looking HOT.... So much so I think you are smoking (ok perv time over - sorry) As always amazing Thursday post and it is so good to read all the fun you and the bump are getting up to.

Emily said...

I love that you can rock the side AND middle part. Extremelyyy jealous over here. Love the pics and post as usual!

daer0n said...

Having your own toilet is awesome. I don't think however that my husband would scrub his would he had his own toilet, and being the clean freak that I am I don't think I would be able to live with the idea of a dirty toilet in our house LOL.

You look so gorgeous, the new hair color completely suits you and makes you look super glowy! Totally loving your outfit here, super chic!

Sabrina said...

seriously when I get pregnant I hope I look as amazing as you do.

I love love love the new do! You are totally killing the red.

Emily said...

You are one funny girl!

- I hated the uniboob/snowman look on myself. If there's a next time I'll try a more supportive bra/a belt for some visual separation.

-Glad you feel that way about spelling. It's so nice when pregnancy brain goes away.

-Yeah for husband and his good bathroom skills.

-Can't wait to see your baby either!

-Congrats on having dinners ready every night!!

Abby S.I. said...

Your funny! I love your blog…and prego with braids ROCKS! I'm doing it too, only I'm 33 with my second and rocking the 14 look. Who cares :)

Delba Cristina said...

old man at the post office? haha. creepy. I don't know what is up with people, but suppose when you're preggo that's like saying: "HEY everybody, who wants to rub my belly!?"

... but who doesn't like a belly rub? ok. I'll stop.
You are too hilarious :)

The Cisneros Family! said...

You should totally have a link up party for Awkward and Awesome Thursdays! That would be amazing, especially since I may or may not have made an entire post inspired by this genius theme......No! I'm not a loser! I just love your blog!

Jamie Lynn said...

Those dark lips and your swoopy hair are the perfect combination. The Threadscene shirt is just the cherry on top! &I am so incredibly glad this is awkward and awesome Thursday. I needed this to cheer up my day. So thanks :)

yourforever said...

Love this blog! I've been reading for a few weeks and even pointed my readers (the few that I have) over to you yesterday. I know they will love it. I almost didn't recognize your post yesterday with dark hair! I've added you to my blogroll and saw the Idaho stuff - my best friend Nicole (Jaegerman) Ward went to BYUI but was probably a few years older than you.

Dani Ploscik said...

I look forward to reading these every week, and THIS week I finally joined in! I added my own on my blog. You're so hilarious... thanks for the laughs!

*kayla* said...

Sydney I think Husband is right, you have never looked more beautiful!! Love this post, love the lipstick.

AV5848 said...

You look great!

Question- are you having a natural water birth? I know you said you changed your whole thought on epidural and that business, but I didn't realize you were going the natural right. Will you not be going to the hospital? My cousin did the water birth, she said it was an amazing experience.

Just curious!

AJD ∞ said...

Okay, I realize your hair is ombre, but only seeing the brown is throwing me off! It also explains why I didn't recognize you in yesterday's post. Whew! Ombre is tricky.

eliza jane said...

Ummmm you are too cute! I just started reading and love your awkward/awesome! Awesome is kind of sort of my favorite word. My blog says so... www.jeffandelizajane.blogspot.com

Haleigh Barrett said...

your hair looks so dark! I saw your tweet. I hope there's still some blond in there! I miss it! you seem to like it though. your dark outfit/make-up/hair suggests a new pattern. love the awks! you're too funny!

Shay said...

Hello dramatic bangs! You look amazing! Love that shirt!
Also, I'm sorry about the spelling error. It happens to the best of us. Does it help that I didn't even notice?

Kristin said...

Love the dark lipstick!

genevieve said...

"Attempting to wear Heidi braids and a pregnant belly at the same time. Hi. I'm 22 going on 14. Feel free to keep staring. I love it."

Alaina Teuscher said...

Seriously? To be pregnant and look THAT good. Totally jealous! Very beautiful and sexy for a woman expecting! And I didn't even recognize you with the new color/style...but it looks AWESOME!

Ashante said...

I will now try my hardest to hold you accountable for the spelling of "their", "there", "they're", "you're", and "your". Seems like many people spell those wrong and I feel your pain 100% Helpin' you out sista! :)

Lainey said...

Um...you are probably the chicest mom-to-be in the world. I love the dark lipstick on you.

Лидочка said...

Ok, so you have to tell me the name of your lipstick!! I've been looking for a shade like this forever!!!
