Awkward & Awesome Thursday


Ah 24 weeks....And yes, I'm wearing a Motley Crue shirt.  (This my friends is dedication and love for my husband and his musical interests).  I caught wind of the idea for Awkward and Awesome Thursdays from Sydney over at The DayBook and couldn't help but jump on the bandwagon.  I don't think that it's an every week thing, but expect it a little more frequently in the future.

  • The looks I am still receiving from random strangers "Is she pregnant or just built larger." Let me give you some advice here, if you a) don't know me, b) aren't sure, or c) a and/or b, you probably shouldn't be asking anyway.
  • My insistence to continue wearing non-maternity clothes until the bitter end. Pregnancy jeans are probably the best invention EVER from a comfort perspective, but I may have a few more casualties in the closet department shortly which means more maternity wear. Bitter. Dagger.
  • The weather.  Dear Mother Nature, Could you please decide already if you want to be summer or fall?!  I prefer the latter, if you are counting votes. Thanks C
  • The look a sales clerk gave me when she realized she owned the same dress that I was wearing as a maternity dress (note: it's not a maternity dress) Poor, unassuming sales clerk: "I have that dress too! Did you get it at Banana?.....I didn't realize it was maternity" Me: "Yes I did and it's not, but it worked so I went with it." PUSC: "Oh, I guess I should hold on to it then?" After she got off of work, she marched right back to BR and returned the sucker.
  • Hubs and I finally agreeing on not only a name, but a nursery theme And we are both still standing with no scars, wounds, and the house is still in one piece. (Whoop.Whoop.)
  • Actually ordering the nursery furniture and bedding
  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes And Baby Mac loves them too...just sayin'
  • VT's win over Miami last weekend Thought it totally elevated my blood pressure (something that the doc strictly prohibits), it was a great game! GO HOKIES
  • Halloween/Fall Decor This brings my obsession with pumpkins to a whole new level.
