awkward and awesome tuesday

So full disclosure - this is a post series that one of my favorite blogs (The Daybook) used to run but no longer does.  I miss it, and I thought it would be fun to start it up again on my own blog.  I even tried to rename it, but Awkward & Awesome is just too perfect.  Hope you enjoy it, I'll try to keep it up ! 

I always travel with my little Gatsby dog in tow on work trips to my hometown (where our offices are.)  Well um, I accidentally LEFT HIM THERE leaving the office last week and didn’t realize until I was ALL the 90 mile way back to St. Louis.  I blame pregnancy brain.  Luckily, my parents were able to watch him for a few days.

Darrell makes chicken to take for lunch at work all week every Sunday night.  Usually I love the smell, even being vegetarian, but this week I was on the verge of throwing up the entire time it was in the oven.  I'll be sequestering myself in the bedroom with candles next Sunday.

When my husband gets home from work and says “um, did you get dressed today?”  No…..no that didn’t actually happen.  Oops.

People I don’t know all that well calling me “little mama” after they find out I’m pregnant.  No-my-name-is-Mary-thank-you-very-much.

Getting up to pee a record-breaking 6 times last night.  Is this training for when the baby is actually here?  


The big pile of snow we got in St. Louis this week.  So gorgeous.  So Christmas-y.

Cyber Monday sales lining up with my second trimester.  The deals I’ve gotten - I feel like I have some semblance of a maternity wardrobe now, and it’s not all Target and Old Navy - I got some fancy stuff too.

These brownies.  So decadent, and so delicious.  They were intended for a holiday party Darrell was attending alone, but he forgot them.  More for me!

Festive dates with friends.  On the list: the lights at Botanical Gardens, The Nutcracker, and a trip to the ice skating rink (where the above pic was taken last year.)  (ps-it's from my friends super cute blog!). Those pink cheeks!

Discovering an old Christmas album from my childhood, now constant rotation.

Darrell reading our baby book of choice.  The cutest.

Cuties.  Yes, the little oranges.  I easily eat 5 or 6 a day.
