Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, October 20

Shoes: c/o Nine West {Martina}, Jeans: Gap, Button Up: F21, Sweater: F21, Necklace: c/o Pree Brulee
Awkward:
- Can I just generalize and put "my body" here? The non-sleeping, the walking, the bending over, the breathing, the cramping, the tummy itching, the contracting, the ... other stuff, the creaking, the shaving {or lack thereof}. Shall I go on? No. You're all done? Me too.
- Becoming so relaxed during a hypnobirthing session that I completely lost all self awareness and full on open-mouth drooled. Sprawled out on the couch, huge belly and all ... it was a flattering moment, let me tell you.
- Aaaaand. That's all the awkwards I remember. Thanks brain. You're really killin' it right now.
Awesome:
- The fastest trip to the salon I've ever had - an hour in and out. Plus it was 25 bucks. I've never been a good coupon clipper. But Groupons ... Groupons I can do.
- My habitually long evening showers. There is nothing more blissful right now than hot water pouring over my neck and back every night. Probably not so blissful? Our water bill.
- Waking up to rain, an open window, a dim room and a husband who's not motivated to get out of bed just yet {which never happens}. Oh, the cozy.
- The gigantic rainbow colored bruise on Tys's calf from a football injury. His awesome. Not mine.  
- Looking forward to a wonderful weekend out of town with my mom and sisters ... while Tys stays here and sets up the nursery
- Getting to slip on a new pair of heels for a minute- even if it's just to sit and work. Makes me feel like my old self again.
- Going over to a girlfriend's house for the evening while our husbands work late. Bonus: she cooked dinner AND gave me some extras to take home for Tys. I realize that this probably makes me look like the most pathetic wife, but hey ... I guess I'll claim that title right now. In a few weeks, maybe I'll be as awesome as you Lauren ;)

You're glowing! Seriously, I don't know how you have the motivation to look so adorable and cute when preggo! I lounged in sweats and tank tops and just looked frumpy.

Christine said...

I love your pregnancy "awkwards", they definitely bring up pregger memories for me. :)

You look fabulous {as always} by the way :)

JenLynn said...

Your look today is so gorgeous. A combo between the messy hair, idyllic makeup, and simple but appropriate outfit.

Stacy said...

Wow I like your new...or changed hair. My sister fell asleep when she was baby sitting once and when the mother woke her up there was a huge puddle of drool on their light grey suede couch. ha ha this is reminiscent of that.

Rissy said...

you are totally awesome no matter what else you do besides growing a human inside your belly! that will suffice on the awesome wife front for awhile I'm sure : )

Gee pregnancy sounds glamorous.. haha but you still look that way in the pics!

Haleigh Barrett said...

long showers are the best! I'm grateful I don't have to pay for water in my apartments. Just gas. So hot showers love to crank up that gas bill. worth it!

Bloggin in PA said...

Awkward: random stranger commenting on your belly...

lori said...

the pregnancy awkwards always make me laugh. still looking fabulous, mama!

Fashion Flirt said...

Love the look of the books on the wire rack... I have the same one (wire rack, that is), and NO idea what to do with it. Now I know!

Alyx said...

Those shoes are rockin'. I think I would topple over if I was wearing them while pregnant, but you work it!

Acacia said...

your blog? amazing. your outfits? amazing. your photos? amazing. your posts? oh. don't get me started i like them. a lot.

Ashley said...

I love the cozy-in-bed-with-a-boy-doesn't-normally-do-that feeling, it's top 5 for me :) Glad your awesome list outnumbers your awkward list!

DiamondsandTulle said...

You look gorgeous as always! Groupons? My sisters and I are all addicted! Sounds like you have a great weekend planned! I played along with A&A today too if you want to check it out. :)

-Crystal said...

You are the cutest prego! And taking leftovers home to your hubby doesn't make you a bad wife! At least you were thinking of him! lol

Shug in Boots said...

Hey! I want a friend to cook for me and give me extra to bring home for Anj. Oh wait, I'm not preggers and have no legitimate excuse to get that treatment. But, it is fun to go over to a girlfriend's house while hubs is otherwise occupied. Never get too old for fun with girlfriends. :)

Marjorie said...

your gorgeous! love these thursday posts.

marcella said...

you look stunning

Mary Kate said...

I love your outfit! You look soo great!!

Kathy said...

Your tummy is just the cutest! (The rest of you too, of course.)

I love Groupons! They make me spend more than I might otherwise, but then I get to feel like I'm treating myself when I actually don't have any free cash for spending.

Hang in there, pretty lady. Your babe will be here sooner than you know it.

Kelsey said...

My favorite part is the belly sticking out in the last picture. :) So cute!

m+b said...

You are simply stunning! And your second awkward happening made me laugh hysterically!

ali said...

jennawinters said...

Love your hair blonde. You are sure a cute prego too! I was doing some creepin' and in one of your old posts forever ago you said something like "this picture is from when I was blonde, don't worry it won't happen ever again" or something like that. HAHAHA Well I am glad you did it's flattering on you!

Mr. Taylor and his Lady said...

oh my gosh, you are simply glowing. of course, the sunlight seeping through the window also adds to the dramatic affect. you also just look so much older. like a momma now...but a hot momma! so beautiful!

I LOVE LOVE this outfit. I want to copy it somehow (hopefully I have something similar in my closet). I have especially loved following your blog lately... it's been really hard for me to dress my pregnant body this time around, but your outfits are always so cute.

eryka {from abcde} said...

i hope i look as chic as you do when im prego!!! love the hair!!

Marie @ Lemondrop Vintage said...

But you will look back on every minute with a smile (ok almost every one) And putting on the shoes to feel yourself is a wonderful idea! Have to do it now and then.

Happy Hour said...

I wanted you to know that I was a faithful reader until like May? I don't know. Life happened, the computer and I grew apart, and then the semester started, and everyone knows how that goes. But I had a free moment, and I checked out my blogger feed for news. I saw a thumbnail from one of your posts and thought, "Sydney! I haven't seen something fabulous in a while!"

So naturally, I followed the link. Did you know that you're pregnant? Because this kid just found out...Congratulations! :)

Rachel said...

i cannot wait to see this little one.

you are glowing, love.

Verity Kae said...

oh.ma.gosh. your hairs look so fabulous! that little chunk baby has a good looking momma!!!!

dailycostumes said...

Since a few weeks I'm following your lovely blog and I'm ALWAYS loving your outfits! I wish I could take a peek into your closet:) How often do buy new clothes? Do you spent a lot? I'm so into leopard print shoes right now! You look radiant! Lots of greetings from Germany, xoxo!

Sarah said...

Awkward: looking at all of your old outfits and posts for a ridiculously long time. not creepy, just awkward.

Awesome: realizing we grew up in the same town of little old Clemmons!

I'd say my awkward is also an awesome, too.

The F Girl said...

I remember those times with a belly so big bending over means falling on your knees and getting out of bed seems like an exercize. It had it's charm (I mostly decided to just laugh about it, that was better than feeling frustrated) ;-)

But you look lovely. Have a wonderful trip!

Katie said...

ohh your hair is looking FABulous! Groupon is the best.

Amy (Oh, My) said...

You look amaaaaaaaaaazing, girl. Gosh darn I hope I look half as you when I've got a big prego tummy :)

You are more stylish being pregnant than I could ever hope to be not pregnant! When I was pregnant I wore big unflattering clothes. Not great for the self esteem. You are give me some much needed inspiration! You go girl!!!!

Julie said...

Katie.Daily said...

Though I'm not pregnant, I have started to really appreciate that importance of a long, hot shower on my stress levels. Cheers to that!

You're probably one of the most gorgeous mamas-to-be that I've every seen! And a very stylish one at that. I love your Awkwardly Awesome series; waking up to a cool rain is one of the best things ever... well maybe not on a work day LOL.

Casariego Family said...

You look adorable!!!! Love every moment that you have right now! You will be wanting to push your baby back in, in about 2 weeks! haha

yvo said...

im so excited to see your baby!

yvo said...

im so excited to see your baby!

Kelsey said...

Your hair looks great! Are you seriously still rocking high heels? I had to give them up once belly got to be a certain largeness. Plus the pregnant clumsiness does more damage when it's paired with heels. And even now heels make my back ache later in the day... FYI my son is just in his diaper right now. He had trouble getting off his sleeper pajamas (don't know why he suddenly wanted them off) so I helped him out. :) Yes, we're getting dressed soon... Anyway, I saw your mom wrote that you're 4cm!! That's great!!! I hope everything goes well! Love you! :)

thegirlkyle.com said...

You look fantastic! I see you're starting to have contractions... hope Baby comes soon!

hello poppet said...

please please please let me know how you get on with your hypno-birth. i've been looking into doing a course myself and would love some real-life insight. and by the sounds of it, you're about to give it the full-blow test.

hope everything goes wonderfully and you're at home with your wee boy very very soon.

Scrappy Gifts said...

You are just glowing! So beautiful. Good luck with everything.

Sarah-Anne said...

ohhh, goodness. i want to look like you do when i'm preggo because GIRL! you are rockin' that belly. :)
