Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, September 1

 Shoes: YesStyle, Leggings: Target, Poncho: H&M {sweet gift from Linda!} Earring: Vanessa Mooney
Awkward 
- This fantasy I have about installing a miniature crane in my bedroom to haul me from my bed to the bathroom. I would just wear overalls all the time. And that nice little crane hook would fly me like a bird ... back and forth to the throne with ease. Best Idea Ever Award?? Right here people.
- Squeezing myself into my chambray button up. Only to have it burst open the second I sit down in the doctor's office waiting room. EVERYONE! Look at meee! I'm wearing my big ugly mommy bra today!! see?? No really ... FEEL FREE TO CONTINUE STARING. Lady ...
- My equilibrium that is no longer equal. It's not uncommon for me to bang into like five walls as I come down the stairs.
- Speaking of stairs. We have four sets in our house. That's fun.
- Talking on the phone to someone who has a heavy accent. I could really use another language in my repertoire around here. Because all the versions of sorry, could you repeat yourself ... erm ... five more times for me? ain't cuttin it. 
- Pregger brain power running dry. Thus asking husband what awkward things happened to me this week. He says, "Jeeze ... at your stage? ..." Then I told him he could shut it.
- A shower that routinely changes water pressure on it's own accord. Oh ... here's a little trickle for ya to wash all that shampoo out. That's right, come closer ... closer .... BAM! Fire hydrant water pressure right in yo face you sucka. bahahahahaha! {because I'm pretty sure it does laugh}
Shower 1 Sydney 0

Awesome
- Um. My leg hair has stopped growing? Weirdest and best pregnancy perk ever!
- The paintings that are FINALLY finished! And don't you dare say that a kindergartener could do em cause they took me like a million years. And I'm sensitive.
- The sweet reassuring comments I recieved on birthing for this past little while. Your postive experiences and encouragement mean a lot you guys. Thank you!
- Cocoa Krispies. I won't even tell you how many bowls I've had this week.
- Walking down the street and actually getting a wave from a neighbor! Amazing!
- The three hours I get to spend in the doctors office today taking a glucose test. Yipeeeeee

Happy Thursday guys!! And happy September!

Alison said...

The paintings are beautiful! And definitely not like kindergarten...at least third grade. I kid, I kid! Mostly out of insecurity...because no one would want to see the "paintings" (I use that term loosely) I would come up with. Awkward, for sure!

You look great...I'm so glad someone is bringing the poncho back :)

So fun to read and I love your paintings!

I had my 1 hour glucose test today--good luck with your test! I wish I had your pregnancy perk of no leg hair--it's getting difficult to shave and my husband actually let me leave the house the other day with hairy legs!

Susan Borland said...

Sydney,
CUTE outfit!

Since I'm a new-ish follower and I'm sure you have told us before, what kind of work does Tyson do? Are you planning to work after [naturally] having your sweet baby boy?

Hearts,
suze

soanthro said...

Hahah Sydney your posts are quickly becoming the highlights of my Thursdays. Too funny and adorable. And your outfit is just awesome!! xx

Lacie said...

Surprisingly, the glucose stuff takes like flat 7Up and it's not all that bad :)

I love Cocoa Krispies. When I was pregnant, it was all about chocolate shakes. Yum.

KaceFace said...

I'm preggo right now also and I was telling my husband I need a trapeze bar over the bed, but a crane is even better! Haha
LOVE the paintings!

highheels2flipflops said...

I laughed out loud at the awkward shower story. Awesome.

Ms. Megan said...

I love your art work + your pretty outfit!! You are so stylish girl!

Maria said...

Isnt pregnancy hair the best! I get a great head of locks and then the hair just stops growing in the "wrong" places. Awesome. and I also was addicted to all kinda of chocolate cerals while pregnant:) Yum!

These posts make my week. The perks of pregnancy and the awk/aws of it all. Your paintings look great and I too am in love with stunted leg hair growth. Hubby reaches out his had to rub my leg and I don't have to pull away because I forgot to shave. Love it all!

Linda Rose said...

yea! looks so good on you! hope you're enjoying it!

You are so BEAUTIFUL! ahh it kills me! Also those paintings are absolutely amazing! I can't wait to see more!!!

Leah said...

The paintings look great! And I hope my leg hair stops growing while I'm pregnant too, seeing as you probably would start having a hard time reaching past your belly to shave at some point.

girliegalz3 said...

I love your blog!! I read it faithfully everyday...I can't wait to see what you post!! I love your fantastic style and attitude, and you and your husband are too cute!!! I noticed one little thing today on your awkward and awesome Thursday post...the misspelling of the word received. Only reason I am mentioning anything, is because last time you had a misspelled word, no one said anything...and you commented on it!! I think it was in another awkward and awesome post too!! Too funny!! I think the word was "their" or "there". hahaha... anyhoo I love your blog and keep doing what your doing... your great at it!!! Thanks, Courtney

monkeyandsquirrel said...

ohhh i just picked up my bottle-o-glucose juice this morning at my check up. i get to down that bad boy in 4 weeks, before my next visit. i've heard it's quite delicious... don't you wish there was a sarcasm font?

Newlymeds said...

love this post! and I love your paintings! I think they are great!!

Miss Heath said...

So your paintings are awesome! So now all you have to do is sign them! I did not see your pretty name anywhere on there... Give yourself some credit love! You deserve it!

Amber said...

My cereal go to choice--fruity pebbles! I swear I eat a bowl each night before bed! It's getting ridiculous!

Style-Edition said...

These photos are stuning! You look amazing and a poncho seems like the perfect pregnancy outfit!
PS - I love your awkward/awesome thursday posts :)

Cassi said...

The paintings are strikingly beautiful. Seriously! And if I was in the Drs office at the same time as you, I would have lent you my scarf to cover your mommy bra.

amber said...

amazing job on the paintings lady!!

meg @ a is for awesome said...

1) Obsessed w/ the poncho. I need one. 2) My leg hair ALSO stopped growing, and I'm due in Nov. with a boy. Best pregnancy perk ever!

katie [the bright life] said...

oh my poncho...cuuuuutest. love the paintings too! xo, katie

ps. is the no-leg-hair thing a bad reason to decide it's time to have a baby? probs, but i'm considering it.

lynn said...

Attempting to live up to one of your last requests from your readers, I wanted to point out that in your third bullet point for the AWESOME category, you spelled 'received' wrong. Love these posts though -they always make me laugh.

meesh said...

girl, you are stinkin' adorable! seriously, i don't think any preggo could rock a poncho like you. also, i pretty much died laughing at your awkward and awesomes today! especially the shower commentary. basically rocked my world haha. and i'm lovin on your paintings as well, so don't even think of being self-conscious. love you girl!

Mmmmmmm helllooooo pregnant chic! Or awesomely awesome Indian-goddess lady...? Either way. Love it.

Jessica said...

ok thank you! I thought i was crazy!!
I'm 33 wks pregnant with my second son...and my leg hair has totally stopped growing! I only have to shave like every two weeks if that it barely shows!
I didn't notice this the first pregnancy though, but probably because I was too busy working!
wierd prego thing, but love not having to shave!!!

ashleygreenwood said...

Yea your bun is back! you are looking beautiful as ever! Sorry about that shirt incident happens to the best of us! :)

Vanessa Marie said...

Sydney your painting are beautiful! Are you selling your paintings??

Emma said...

LOVE the paintings. Wish I were creative like that, haha!

Also, you're adorable :) Outfit photos look amazing!

Jennifer Rod said...

I love this look on you!

Lace and Tulle said...

YOU LOOK SO PRETTY!! LOVE THE OUTFIT!

meag said...

oh don't we love that 3 hour glucose test. i had to do it twice, disgusting and boring. but good luck to you! do love your outfit (as usual)

Stephanie said...

Everyone says the glucose test is nasty...but I secretly LOVED it! It just taste like someone put too much sugar in kool-aid. On the up side, they let you pick which flavor you want! I love the paintings, but think the colors are kind of depressing, just my opinion though, they are still beautiful and I'm sure they fit lovely in your space!

KatherineBlayre said...

You just crack me up. And btw, I do really like your paintings. People are quick to assume that art is easy and it's not at all! I can barely do stick figures!
You look so wonderful and truly have a glow about you.

Katy B. said...

I've tried doing paintings like that before, and well...they would be under my awkward section for Awkward and Awesome Thursday. (If that makes sense.)

Anyway, I guess I'm just trying to say that I love the paintings!

Leah said...

My legs totally stopped growing with my first baby (a boy)! Also, everyone around me said that my hair would get super thick and full while pregnant, but instead it all fell out, practially at least. This pregnancy (I'm 11 weeks) My leg hair is growing super fast and my head hair isn't falling out. I'm thinking maybe its a girl this time? Anyway, loved your Awkward/awesome, hilarious as always!

danica said...

The shower story made me laugh! Sorry your water pressure is being annoying.

I think the paintings came out great! :)

I have a grand idea! You should host a giveaway and giveaway those paintings. Because you rocked them!

M said...

Dear, Sydney. You are too cute. I'm excited for your family and the arrival of your lil lemon drop.

<3 M

P.S. You misspelled "received" and "positive" but I think that just adds to your cuteness.

Julie said...

Lack of hair growth is a super bonus in pregnancy:) A little downer...all of your hair that didn't shed during pregnancy on your head will all start falling out after birth. Don't worry though, you will only feel like you are going bald, not actually going bald;)

Julie

Jamie said...

Those paintings are beautiful! & you look great. I wish I looked that good while preggers. :)
