Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

Thursday, March 8

Shoes: c/o Frock Candy, Pants: c/o Windsor, Jacket: Old Navy, Sunglasses: Target
Awkward:
- The exact same ritual I go through every time someone asks me what my name is.  
I'm Sydney. 
Well hi Tiffany, nice to meet you. 
Oh no, it's Sydney. 
Cindy? 
SYDNEY. Like in Australia.
One of these days, I'm just going to save myself the trouble and legally change my name to Sydney, like in Australia Poulton. It's nice, right?
- Naked pregnancy pictures. Stop showing them to me world!
- Loading Everett's car seat into the middle of my backseat after hefting a barbell for an hour. It's the grunt heard 'round the parking lot. More like the three grunts. Somehow the first two never quite make my arms work.
-  Standing in line and getting hit in the back of the head with a paper airplane from an anonymous pilot. So I retrieve the paper airplane from the ground and stand up to return it to ... oh that's right ... no one. No one is there to take the stupid airplane. And everyone's looking at me like, wow that's really unfortunate and embarrassing. So I take that paper airplane and I SLAM DUNK IT IN THE TRASH CAN.
-For me, meditation has the same effect as a massage: it feels good, so it makes me smile. So there's the teacher at the front of the class right? Scanning her glorious sea of serious and thoughtful and meditative yoga faces ... and then she gets to me, eyes closed, just smiling away like an idiot. So she announces people, announces to the class that somebody is having a good time. After which I pick up my shovel, dig a very large hole and throw myself in it.

Awesome:
- Baby eyelashes tickling my arm as he sleeps
- Making friends with a 50 year old woman who just moved here from Holland. Who happens to be hilarious.
-  73 degrees today! I'm wearing sandals man!
- Listening to Tyson sing when he thinks he's by himself.
- The curious fingers and eyes that helped me cook and eat pancakes yesterday.
- The beautiful weekend I have ahead that has absolutely nothing to do with being sick and everything to do with spending lots of time with my boys.

Anna said...

Love the instagram pic of E 'helping' with the pancakes. :)
ps. could you be referring to Jessica Simpson naked pregnancy photos, perhaps?

Charlotte said...

Sometimes, old ladies are the funniest people to be around! the name thing must be annoying, but then it's a good name so maybe that's the price you pay

Also, I love those wedges and those jeans look so awesome on you!

Ugh I hate naked pregnancy pictures! Especially ones where the guy is in there all shirtless too. some people seem to think this is beautiful but I think it is seriously creepy. Haha, glad to hear I'm not alone!

Like carlotta, I die every time I read these two. Sometime in the near future, I'm seriously going to print them to read whenever I need a laugh.
xo.

basiccravings said...

I always do the "Sydney, like Australia" line. Or, I just say, yes, sure, my name is Cindy.

Candace Stevenson said...

hahah to all of this. But expecially naked pregnant pictures. No one's tryin to see yo neked prego body.

Britty said...

Amazing pants. I bought a rust pair and a blue pair after being inspired by your "how to wear colored jeans" post, and the yellow ones are just THAT much more fabulous!

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

First the yellow skinnies are killer, second, I love your hair-movement (great modeling effect) and third... I wanna feel his eyelashes tickling my arm while YOU sleep!!! XOXOXO 3 more weeks!!!! EEEEPP!

Lindsay R said...

the paper airplane is my fav... hahaha the fact that there is no one there to claim it is slightly odd. looking good as always.

Lindsay

Lindsay said...

First, I'm in love with those shoes!! Second, I'm on the phone daily with my job and it never fails, I say, "Hi this is Lindsay".. and I get "Hi Wednesday"...whaaaaat? I dont get it.

The Bombshell Next Door said...

Awesome pants!!! :)

Chelsea said...

The awesome part about the awkward heft of baby car seat is that by the end of this you'll have rockin' Madonna arms! Fantastic outfit - I'm so loving colored denim right now. Perfect pop of color.

Syd, I'm a devoted reader. I love your blog, and I'm happy that you I'm one of those who is afraid that #Kony2012 might be doing more harm than good. That might not be the case; getting the word out and educating people is certainly important when it comes to things like this. But the more I read, the more I think #Kony2012 is not only not helping, it's probably hurting. There's this article: http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/03/07/guest_post_joseph_kony_is_not_in_uganda_and_other_complicated_things And you can find a good aggregation of information here: http://www.whydev.org/​a-readers-digest-of-kony-20​12/. I found this article (an opinion on each side) especially helpful: http://ht.ly/9w3cb.

Kassie said...

Love your pants!

I think loading a child in a car seat always involves grunting....there is no way around it!

Jennifer said...

Syd, I'm a devoted reader. I love your blog, and I'm happy that you care about helping people. That said, I'm starting to think that #Kony2012 might be doing more harm than good.

Kim said...

Um so yeah... did you just have a baby or did you fake the whole pregnancy and shove a pillow up your shirt for a couple months. You are smokin girl!

Elisha(: said...

your gorgeous!!

Samantha said...

I bought these yellow pants a few weeks ago from Windsor! SO CUTE! And incredibly comfortable!! I need the aqua ones now, too... :)

mai said...

LOL! love awkward & awesome thursdays.

&& those are some fabulous yellow pants.

Krista Lynn said...

GMA was talking about that video on the news this morning! I'll have to watch it - it sounds like it's been inspiring to actively make the world a little bit better of a place.

Pancakes sound so good right about now...

Sarah said...

My husband and I watched that video yesterday.... Seriously changed my perspective so much on the world we live in. Never realized how naive I was as to what goes on outside my little bubble of comfort. Thanks for sharing. And on a lighter note, you look amazing as always!!

Lacey said...

I think your name is super pretty as it is, so please don't change it to --as.in.austrailia.-- :) That happens to me, people mistake me for Lucy. I like how all the slam dunk was in ALL CAPS :D

p.s. you are probably the bestest meditative person ever and the whole class is jealous ; )

Aline @ Tamed Musings said...

You sound like such a fun person :)
I love your blog, by the way.

Danielle Celeste Couture said...

You look so cute and fresh. i love your awkward. I never say this EVER but LOL :>

Lottie said...

I love you shoes so cool! As are your pants!

A I can relate to your paper airplane--three boys dropped something on my head and everyone was laughing--awkward and then I spent the next twenty minutes checking my hair--smooth!

LT said...

Where do you go to meditation? I'm looking for a place in the DC area.

Love your blog!

Love the yellow pants! I'm so into colored pants for the spring/summer! I just bought a pair of red skinnies and I can't wait to wear them!

Check out my blog!

I am seriously in love with the colored pants trend this year- I have red & green & now I want yellow! They look adorable on you :)

You look amazing! You need to do another hair tutorial! I am loving how you are styling it lately and am interested to know exactly what you are doing!

Oh my gosh I love this outfit!!! I need yellow pants and those shoes asap!

NP said...

I just have to say it is so refreshing to read your awkward moments...it makes me feel like I'm not the only one who has these!

Thanks for sharing! They always make me laugh!

Sierra Oblad said...

Love the pants! I just bought shoes that are the same color

People always get my last name wrong (Oblad) because I have an Australian accent. They always think I'm saying "Orblad." So, I feel your pain with the name thing.

DiamondsandTulle said...

LOVE this outfit Sydney! I'm wearing yellow jeans in my post today too, but I'm seriously tempted to go get another pair after seeing this bright, cheerful yellow on you! Sounds like you have a great week ahead!

Ashley said...

That car seat is seriously heavy after a gym workout!! They should have someone help us moms out to the car.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Ugh, people get my name wrong too, both is saying it and spelling it. I say "Hi, I'm Krysten" and I've been called everything from Kirsten to Kristine to Kristi and everything in between.

And don't even get me started on how they spell it wrong...

Kelly Brooke said...

can i please (please) look this amazing after having a baby? oh let's be real, can i just look this amazing period?

Alex and Andrew Sorensen said...

oh my goodness I always get the name thing! I must say mine wired or something cause people ALWAYS think I am saying Alice when I say Alex. I guess I need to really emphasis the x. Love the yellow pants by the way. I really want some mint colored ones :)

you are the cutest. i love your outfits and i'm dying over these yellow pants aaand your gorgeous hair. hehe at least your name doesn't rhyme now...everytime i tell someone my married name "brooke cook" i get funny stares or interesting questions and comments. it's real fun

Great color pop! I swear every post you get skinnier and skinnier. You look great!

SydneysHome said...

I'm another Sydney so I have that exact conversation at least three times a week! My sister is Sommer, so occasionally, people follow up the name discussion with the question "Were your parents hippies?" (Most certainly not.)

mom24orsinis said...

I always get "Becky?"...Aaaa, no, it's "Megan"...

I just have to comment back to Charlotte (in love and with a total smile here)...I'm guessing you are still in your 20's (?) because, believe you me, 50 does not equal "old lady" unless you are still a long way from it...you'll see when you are my age, with 4 little kids, that 50 is a WHOLE lot younger than you used to think it was...just with the benefit of more money and more wisdom :)

Now "Cindy", dear, stop working your perfect body out so you don't disappear on us...you look lovely just as you are...or keep working out, just promise to eat doughnuts when you're done :)

Mama Bear said...

Your "Awkward" paper airplane ending in a slam dunk in the trash.... definitely should of been put in the "Awesome" section because really... your recovery was simply AWESOME. Love it.

Maria said...

Hahha the last one of your awkwards made me laugh so hard. And I feel you about the name thing, I have to say my name is Maria as in (MA-RE-UH) not MariE.

Along Abbey Road said...

Well don't you look sassy today! LOVE those pants. And I need to hit up Target for some goods. It's been too long.

I like the name change idea. It would look awesome on a driver's license.

Where do I get a 50 year old friend from Holland?! I vant to spreken ze Dutch language.

Agreed on the naked pregnancy photos. :|

HannahHannah said...

Hey Sydney do those pants from windsor fit well? I am usually a size 6ish sometimes a 4 and I want them so so badly! But I don't want to get them off the website and them be too tight :)

Jenni said...

Hey Sydney! I'm an advocate for Invisible Children (and I've been reading your blog for months, I love it), so I was so excited that you posted our Kony2012 movie! There's been all kinds of stuff going on lately, questions about the movie and whatnot, so if you have any or get any, I'd love to answer them!
Thanks so much for supporting Invisible Children,

Jenni

Hilary said...

I have to agree with the naked pregnany pictures...and even the showing the bare skin belly pictures. I mean who really wants to see that! It might be worse though when people are wearing lingerie and being sexy. There's just something wrong about that. At least keep it to yourselves.

Miss Kenzie said...

i LOVE yellow and those pants are fabulous!

hahahaha, oh man all those are hilarious and cute!

Hilary said...

Oh and i get the name thing a lot. Usually it gets spelled wrong. Or someone doesn't know how to say it. Or they just start calling me by some random name that doesn't even sound like it...Lisa, Haley, Heather, Whittney...it goes on. It's Hilary, people, Hilary. Not 2 L's but one. Im not a double loser. (at least thats what i keep telling myself ;))

lavidalarosa said...

I have a name-introduction dialogue too:
"Hi, I'm Teale"
"Jill?"
"No, Teale, like the color"
"Is it spelled the same way?"
"No, there's an E on the end"
"Oh, so it looks like Tealie?"
"Yes, I get called that a lot"
"Is that your favorite color?"
"No..."
"Oh, how did you get your name?"
"My parents."

Marianne said...

hello you look amazing!!

Charity said...

My name is Charity. People frequently make a disaster out of my name, too: Chastity, Chelsea, Carrie, Cherry, Colostomy (just kidding on the last one) ;)

Taylor said...

Omgoodness I totally feel you on the name thing! "Hi, my name is Taylor" "Tara?" "No, Taylor" "Oh Kaila?" "TAYLOR. Like a last name or boys name." "Oh so Tyler?" "Humph, nevermind."

Also...I need to whip out my own yellow pants. Happy happy yellow pants.

Simply Valorie said...

People always think that when I say "Valorie" I said "Vanessa," "Victoria," "Valencia," or any other V name. Clearly, people don't listen.

These were so cute! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. :)

chelsea lyn said...

those yellow pants are faaaabulous!

pintsizedmama.com said...

This made me laugh today. I can feel your pain. Whenever I try to put my infant carseat onto the stroller, I struggle for a few minutes and look extremely uncoordinated. It's nice to hear that other mom's struggle with carseats too :)

Emily Krajniak said...

Agreed. That played out cover pose is so passe. Also, the new Elle cover is so photo shopped I think we can safely categorize it as a cartoon rather than a photo. Am I right?

As told by Gretchen:) said...

Love the outfit. So simple and so chic

Awww, love this! And the first one made me laugh.
My name is Natalia, so I'm always getting Natasha, Natalie... what? It's Natalia! Haha, so I totally get it. But my sister and I seriously LOVE your name.
Also, speaking of my sister... okay, I don't even know if you read all these, but she's 10 years old, and loves your blog. Like, goes to it every day, pretty much stalks your twitter to see new pictures, and tries to dress like you. It's adorable. So, do you think maybe you could do me a huge, huge favor and leave a comment on her blog? I just know it would make her day... no, it'd be like, the highlight of her life. I don't mean to spam you or anything, but if you wouldn't mind just posting a little comment or something, I know she'd love it! Her blog address is:

Yup, I'm Bethany so I'm usually called Brittany instead. Because of this I really, really resent the name Brittany.

If it's not Brittany it's Melanie or Stephanie, or of course the ever popular Tiffany.

Don't let it bug you too much. Some people, they wouldn't get your name right unless you were named a number or something. And maybe not even then. :)

I love your yellow pants!! They look great on you, just like everything else you wear. I want a pair of colorful pants so bad. I go to school at BYU-I and our teacher was talking about your husband today and about how he is a great example about someone who really worked hard to get where wanted. You guys are such an awesome couple, and I love reading your blog! Great inspiration.

Oh thank you for believing the naked prego pics are disturbing as well! I mean do you really want to look back some day with your child and say "Look at mom, that's when I was pregnant with you. Oh and by the way I'm naked!" No, no you do not want that to happen.

you're so stinkin' cute. love the blog.

1. I LOVE your yellow jeans! Colorful jeans/pants are on my shopping list.

2. Your yoga story made me smile. Why can't someone smile and meditative at the same time!

3. Have a fabulous weekend! I came home to VA to surprise my mom for her birthday...but I seem to have left Spring in SC. Although, the weather is gorgeous here (just not as warm and blossoming).

Lisa said...

My daughter is 7, and her name is Sydney and I have the same frustrations as you do. Actually, I had a lady in the grocery store ask her name (she was about 2) and she said "Cindy" I said no, it's SYDney...and she said with a disapproving look on her face "Oh. I like Cindy better....hi Cindy!"

Mortified and shocked.

Have a great weekend !

Jessica said...

I am obsessed with those shoes. Love, love, love!

Cindy Marie said...

i have that issue too.
except people ask if my name is sydney
or cynthia
and if i correct them, they call me the wrong name anyway.
sheesh people!

Love the outfit! I feel ya on the name thing. Padgett is a toughie:

hi, my name is Padgett.
Pagent?... No, Padgett
Patches?... No, Padgett
Patrick?... No, Padgett
Can you spell that?... P A D G E T T
Oh great, Pagent, nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you too.

In public situations - take out, dressing rooms, I always use Emily. No use in going through that 2 minute dance.

Courtney B said...

Those yellow pants look amazzzing on you! I know you have thousands of comments/emails but I NEEEED to know what the fabric is like with those jeans. Are they thick or ultra thin like most colored jeans? I have been having the hardest time finding a pair that don't show off every detail of... our underwear :) You know what I'm talking about.
Oh, and I'd appreciate it if the material was sturdy enough to hold in my flabby thighs, haha!

Sarah Jones said...

You're just so awesome. I laugh out loud and smile ridiculously every time I visit your blog.

Thank you

Trinnah said...

LOL @ the name thing! People are funny. It's kind of like when they totally butcher your name at Starbucks. :) I love the yellow pants! Looks amazing with those wedges. Also, I totally agree on the naked pregnant pics. My sister took a picture of my lounging in our hotel once (and I had just pulled up my shirt a little to give my belly breathing room) and my niece was like, "Can I post it on facebook?" I had to snatch the phone from her hand and say noooooooo! LOL.

I freaking love your blog! I found it when I was searching for cute pregnancy looks (now you're all over my Pinterest, thank you very much. It's called Pregnant & Fabulous, by the way... which you were.)

You're even more fabulous post baby. Thanks for the inspiration. I have a toddler and just announced my second pregnancy to the world. (Well, blog world, but who's counting)

New follower, new reader here!

HI Sydney, I am also Sydney, and I found your blog through my bff Sara. I was just going through some of your posts, I love your writing style, and your style, btw, but I had to comment on this particular post because 1) People always call me Tiffany and I have NO clue as to why and 2) I also get the Cindy? Answer: No, Sydney, like Australia.

Though, I think I'll start using the "Sydney, as in Nova Scotia." line more often. Happy blogging! I'm very much looking forward to following you. :)
