Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, September 22

Boots: Hunter, Leggings: Target, Button-up: c/o Panache, Blazer: Nordstrom, Glasses: Target
Awkward:
- Leaving my cart for a bit to go grab an item down the aisle a ways. I come back, toss the item in my cart while looking at my list and keep moving down the aisle. Only to look down and see someone else's purse. Sure, just inconspicuously grab your stuff out of someone else's cart and walk quickly back to your own ... head down. Move legs .... move! move! move! That's normal. I'm sure the security camera footage on that one is fantastic. 
- The most uninhibited little boy coming up to me in a check-out lane, "Can I touch your baby?" and gave it a little pat. It was actually really sweet. The awkward part was when the mom saw where he was and loudly ushered him away like I was a giant germ or something. And then we stood next to each other ... in a longgggggg line.
- Our neighbor's afternoon delight. We're gonna leave it at that. It was slightly traumatic. And now I know to close my windows at about 3:00.
- Realizing that jerky is probably not the best snack to bring to church. Here let me just yank on this piece of meat and breath on you with my teriyaki breath. Isn't that nice.
- Walking out of a restaurant restroom w toilet paper stuck to my foot. Really? THAT just happened. 
- Trying to get stuff out of our bottom Tupperware cupboard.  It's like a dance. An awkward elephant grand-plié dance - where you can't breath. And your knees crack when you stand up again. It's lovely. 
Awesome:
- The older lady that came up behind me and said ... "It's a boy in there isn't it? That little sucker is straight out the front." I'll just ignore the fact that my belly is now a "sucker" and give her props for excellent baby-prediction skills.
- The little day-trip we're gonna take this weekend. Between work, an evening class to prepare for the GMAT and playing in his football games, I haven't hardly seen husband all week. And I am NOT sharing this weekend.
- Having enough energy to do Walmart AND Target in one sitting.  It's a pregnancy miracle!
- Texting my Grandma. Never thought I'd even say those words.
- AND because an awesome list is not complete without the mention of food ... this week we're gonna go with waffles. Because syrup is dang delicious.

You never disappoint Sydney. Is it just me, or are your pregnancy "awkwards" getting way more AWESOME? LOVE IT. Made me LOL.

dailydoily said...

Haha. Awesome. I love these. :) I hope you have a great weekend.

Kassie said...

Aww...sweet little boy wanting to pat your baby. Sometimes parents are weird about such things. I once had a mom pull the cover over her baby after I looked at her child. It was so strange to me!

And waffles and pancakes...used to love them, but after being pregnant they make me sick! :S

Sandy a la Mode said...

LOVE your boots girl!! and i have that blazer too!!

Dani said...

Love your blog! And the little boy who asked if he could touch your baby, so precious! Just started reading (after I HAD to find out who this girl was that everyone pins on piterest) and couldn't believe you guys are from Idaho! I go to BSU! Anyways, love the blog, and your outfits, but duhh! :)

Alivia said...

Oooh now I need waffles. Oh bother.

Kota Behemota said...

love your Thursday's posts!!! :D

Deveny said...

Back when we were at BYU-ID we had a newly wed couple who's afternoon delight was pretty much heard through the entire 3 floors...their window was open. Lovely. And then we had people above us in our apt complex that were so ahem..loud.. that our friends across the courtyard would hear them! It was the most awkward thing of my life. Shudder...

Teresa said...

You are so stinkin' cute I can't stand it. :)

I love your lists! The "afternoon delight" had to be the best this week - hahaha!! (Better than your own being awkwardly interrupted though, by YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW, which happened to me recently! I was ashamed. ;)

k.rahn said...

Ahhh that toilet paper thing has TOTALLY happened to me, too! (Also at a restaurant.) My sister just started cracking up at me and said, "I didn't know that actually happened to people in real life!" Sadly, I can confirm that it does.

Kristen said...

Hunter Boots are a must this time of year! Love them! And I am in love with your hair, still to this day, you have awesome hair ♥

Kara said...

That's great he's taking a GMAT prep class. I made the mistake of not taking one, and it showed in my score. Whoops! But best of luck to him, it's a tricky test!

JessicaLynn said...

Sydney said...

Oh yes waffles.
I'm always afraid of walking out of the bathroom with toilet paper on my foot so I always check now. It's a little ridiculous.

christine said...

You always make me laugh :) love your blog!

genevieve said...

The fact that you texted your grandma is BEYOND awesome.

Look at you being all adorable and pregnant! Loving that outfit.

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Hahaha! You are so funny! It's totally awesome that your Grandmother knows how to text! I am so lucky my Gramma knows how to use her cell phone for talking! :)

Ashley said...

So glad closing the windows helped! I've been woken up when staying in a hotel room before. I'm still traumatized!

I love waffles too, especially with warm maple syrup and berries. Yum!

e.r.a. said...

BOOTS!

a girl with a smile said...

Hahahahahahahaha

That is all.

mangala said...

Loving your blog..first time commenting...when i was preggy, my only high point was (especially during first and second trimester, as i had a severe case of morning sickness) was belgium waffles with maple syrup. YUM!! They used to sell it here in costco..Have fun :)

Ashley said...

Your post always makes me smile. I always ask myself if I can come up with a list of awkward moments for my week and I can't do it...I guess that's because I'm a hermit :p lol!

Lace and Tulle said...

LOL!! you really just made me laugh!! great post!! you look so pretty!

Lauren Margaret said...

"Texting my Grandma." - HAHA! I text my Grandma too. It's. Awesome.

Lindsay R said...

The shopping cart story wins. That is awesome. And syrup/ breakfast foods always sounded so good. You look so good!

Lindsay

Erin said...

you look so so so cozy

Bec said...

Seriously, how do you look that good pregnant? I know you're probably uncomfortable a bit but how do you look that freaking great?! I don't have to work around a baby in the front and I don't look close to this stylish and gorgeous. Clearly I'm underachieving. Way to work it Syd.

elise said...

A&A Thursday is bliss. Seriously, I love it so much! I'm way happy that that older lady predicted your baby and that your grandma texts now.

Shamini said...

yummy ! waffles ... syrup ... hmmm !
oh and the shopping cart story... i know that ! i'm actually kinda used to doing that... because whenever am looking at something, Mr takes away our shopping cart, and am like ok this in, this in, this in... and when am about to move, i realise that there's someone next to me, looking at me with those weird eyes ! Oh man! sorry i'm not kidnapping your shopping cart ... !
xx

melissamevans said...

I heart your awkward Thursdays..I need to start documenting my awkwardness, on my blog...I find that I may be laughing at myself far too often not to share : )..Your site is a daily read of mine...and waffles YUM!!

..it's on my list of things to eat too.

New York Lover D. said...

I want a pair of Hunter boots! They are so cool :)

Michelle said...

Oh Sydney, girl you are so funny!!!!! I laughed so hard about the shopping cart, but how funny is the neighbor delight one, that sounds familiar to me around here!!!! Loved this today!!!!!! You look Amazing as Always!!!!!!

Mishiee said...

There was this one day I went to the doctor's office and realized upon going to the bathroom Id been walking around with my top inside out all day. And no one had said anything. I thought that was embarrassing enough for one day, but noo... after walking back out down this long hall to the waiting room my sister pulls me aside and tells me I also had toilet paper stuck to my butt apparently.

Mhmm, I'm a genius.

That little kid sounds so cute!

CessOviedo said...

Your grandma must be the coolest one, that's really awesome! I've taken the wrong cart oo, lady didn't took it so well though, loving your sunglasses!

Did you already pull a winner for the Threadcase bag? I haven't seen a winner announced yet. Just wondering.

Alyssa Wilke said...

i love teriyaki beek jerky. but dang, it does give me bad breath too...

alex said...

Texting your grandma?! That's good stuff haha.

Emma Frances said...

You are hilarious! And that little boy touching your belly is adorable. The rest is awkward of course! :] Also, I can't believe you texted your grandma! I don't believe I will ever be saying those words!

Nastassja said...

I look forward to these. They make my day.

richardberry said...

In my opinion not only Thursday every day of the week could be awkward by your efforts.

Kimberly said...

Haha these posts are funny...I'm sure the mom was just super embarassed that her kid did that! A lot of pregnant women don't like random strangers touching their belly and she was probably worried that he made you uncomfortable. I'm sure it was nothing personal!

HAHA I love your awkward moments! I always get such a good visual picture in my head... especially the one about you taking the wrong cart! ha Totally something I would do!

Also I don't think my grandma even knows what "texting" is!

*** KITSCH *** said...

Disfruta de tu embarazo, es maravilloso!

mi hijo también me daba muchas y grandes patadas dentro de la barriga... y ahora con dos años es pura energia!

Brandy said...

Love your blog and Hunter boots :)

Megann Monday said...

I always love your Awkward and Awesome list! :) LOL at that wrong cart moment. Wondering what the security thought about that. And wow, what a cool grandma you have! Your list just made my night :) You're awesome, Sydney!

DNA (designers+artists) said...

Haha, the toilet paper item made me chuckle. Happesn to everyone. And waffles + syrup are so damn good. :)

You are one of the few stylish and presentable pregnant people I've yet to lay eyes on. You are a great inspiration for pregnant women who hate typical pregnant clothes! Spot on :D

You are quite possibly the chicest pregnant woman I've ever seen - major props. Also, the awkwards are hilarious (sorry, but it's true!). Rock on sister!

Mommyblogger said...

Oh LOL- Your awkwards seriously crack me up! Your so funny :)

Texting grandma is the coolest thing ever. Props to your granny!!!

Southern California Chic said...

Thats so funny! I'm only brave enough to walk to the other side of my front door to check the mail {technically I can just open, lean out, and around.... } in my robe!! I think this is the first time I've ever commented on your blog, but I really enjoy reading it!
XO Lucy
PS: I used a picture of you in my post yesterday, but I TOTALLY linked it to your blog... Hope that's OK?!?!

The Presutti's said...

New follower! You are gorgeous!! Congrats on your precious baby! I love this post, all of it so true and so cute! Can't wait to get to know you!

brittany said...

I love your awkward and awesome posts! Sometimes I wonder if there shouldn't be a third section called Awkwawesome. I think most of everything you post on the awkward list would belong in that category instead :)

I've been reading your blog daily for some time now and you've inspired me to jump in and give my own a try! It's still a work in progress, but:

Hope you had a great weekend!

kELLO! said...

i've been stalking your life. (but does it really count if it's public?) and comparing our bellies. i'm 30 weeks. with a boy. and he's sticking right out in front and everyone asks me if it's a boy, too :)
also. my husband is preparing for the GMAT. ugh. never did i think when we talked about it would it take up so much of his time. boo. and to think of it only getting worse when he's actually in school? geesh.
and eggos may not be as good as waffles, still similar. and i ate three for breakfast this morning... or everyday for the last month...

Chantel said...

Youre adorable. I love that I came upon this blog:))

My name is Susan Hazel. said...

Girl, you make pregnancy look so chic. Love those Hunter wellies!
