Birthday Blog Candy and Embarrassing Moments!


In honor of my ......ahem.....29th birthday.....I will be offering some spooky Blog Candy! It includes: Making Memories 6x 6 pad of Halloween paper and brads, Daisy D's buttons, Orange Fun Flock, and two stamps.
What do you have to do? Tell me your most embarrassing moment. I could really use some giggles at the moment. I'll tell you mine...just so it is fair. Course I have many to choose from....but here is one! I was teaching my 5th grade students a few years ago when I had to leave in the morning for a doctor's appt. I swung my arms over my head to get my jacket on. (The students were watching me at this point) When one of my students raised their hand. They proceeded to tell me that I had a hole in the arm of my sweater. So being the nice teacher that I am, thanked them and continued to leave for my appt. I had one of those big loopy, chenille sweaters....remember those? Well, when I got in my car to check out this little hole.....it was a HUGE gaping hole in the armpit! This entire time thinking it was just a tiny little thing! One would have thought I would have felt a breeze coming though there or something! So I went to the doc's office and proceeded to call my MIL. (She lives close by). I told her what happened, of course she was laughing hysterically on the other end....she is very supportive that way.....and brought me a new sweater. When I returned to school, the kids noticed my change in clothing....I told them I was too cold in the "holy" sweater!




So share those stories, make them up if you want to...I won't know the difference! I will hold the random drawing on Monday night. (September 10th.....My birthday!)

Love the holey armpit story!
One of my many, many embarrassing moments, was whilst sitting in a doctors waiting room, you know when you could hear a pin drop as it's so quite. My darling Son,(who was around 3years old at the time), decided to shout at the top of his little voice, 'Mum, you've got diarrhea!', not sure why he said that, as i certainly didn't, and where does a three year pluck that from? ground open and swallow, was what came into my mind. After that every time we went to the doctors surgery, i made sure he had a large bag of sweeties to keep him quiet.LOL. Hope this makes you smile.:)

Love your story :) Let's see....embarrassing moment...Gesh, I've had sooo many....hard to pick just one! :) When I was a kid, my mother used to do that "pretend to trip" routine...She'd do it at least once a day and always in public and typically when I had a friend with me. So this one time I decided to try the fake trip...can you see where this is going...yep! Fell flat on my face on the cement..my face was all scratched up for days! And this was the day before my big birthday party :( Oh well....life goes on! :) No more fake tripping for me...I'll just trip naturally from on.

i worked at a furniture store that opened at 10:00. we would get there at 9:00. we never opened the doors early so we would have to go in at the warehouse side and jump onto the dock about 4 feet to get up. (why they never put a stair there is beyond me) so one morning i had a lovely nice long jean skirt on. kind of tight so not a lot of leg lifting space. well, all the warehouse boys were up on the dock waiting to be let in. so here i go to jump the dock and ripppppppp my skirt ripped all the way up the back. yep passed my undies. that sucked. i was holding the back of my skirt (i never even made it to the top of the dock) walked backwards to my car to go home to change. the teased me for years!

Gee...mine goes back to 9th grade. A senior I had a big crush on gave me back a mitten I must have dropped on the way into school. I thanked him and turned back to my locker, thinking it was still opened. It wasn't. I banged into it face first and almost knocked myself out. My compassionate friends roared with laughter - all day!

Wife2TJ said...

This is such wonderful blog candy!!! I hope I win it. lol! :-)

I was just asked this question and shared this story...

I have done many silly/embarrassing things. One I remember off hand is-My dh is a twin (identical) when we were first dating, it was hard for me to tell him and his brother apart (very early in our relationship) I went sat next to his brother thinking it was him, and put my hand on his thigh. His wife looked at me laughed and said "Wrong Twin" I must have turned red as a tomato. I was so embarrassed.

Now I can easily tell them apart and haven't been confused since, but I still look back and have to laugh about it! :-)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!! -Samantha

I was in a hurry to go to Thanksgiving at my MIL house. I grabbed my dress and slipped it over my head and rushed off. I arrived and was getting ready to go to the table, when someone pointed out that my dress was inside out. It was one of the sheer type that you wear a pretty slip with and all the seams were on the outside. I went in the other room and turned it the way it was suppose to go. LOL

Cathy said...

Happy 29th Birthday. Hope your day is the best ever!
One of my emarassing moments...
When I got to work I had to different colors of shoes on, of course they were the same style. I went around all day like that. I did survive, but I do check everything 2, 3, sometimes 4 before leaving now. Thanks for a FUN chance.

Jen said...

Happy Birthday!!! I swear I have had way too many embarrassing moments in my life to pick just one......LOL But here goes. I met my husband on a blind date that I did not want to go on. My HS sweetheart had broken my heart and swore I would die. My friends trying to be ever so sweet set this blind date up, my one GF says to me this is the guy your going to marry........Say what I was 19 and I was going to marry my HS sweetheart anyways!! That day I told mom I wasn't going, oh yes you are she said!!! She hauled my but out to buy all new clothes, even shoes. So I go to the party, walk in and meet John immediately think what the heck was my GF thinking. I'm out of here, but hence of course I don't have a ride home yet........Grrrrrr So I start talking a bit to John, he brings me a beer, which I totally can't stand, but really didn't want to hurt the poor guys feelings. So I sip it all night long. Finally I can get ready to get out of there, and I go walking down the driveway, carrying my still half full beer, and slip down the driveway, falling on my butt, all while dumping the beer down the sleeve of my new leather Jacket!! I told my mom I didn't want to go. I was so mortified, but I was sure John wouldn't call, but sure enough he did, probably good thing because he proposed to me in December, just 3 months after we met, and we've been together for 15 yrs. and have 3 beautiful children. Great blog candy crossing my fingers I win!

CAKVD said...

Hi! I love the goodies you are giving away - I don't have any halloween scrapbooking stuff yet! My most embarrassing moment was when I was a football cheerleader in high school. It was parent's night (the biggest game of the season). It had been raining, so the field was wet. At halftime, the cheerleaders were to run out into the middle of the field and do a cartwheel while their name was announced over the loudspeaker. Well, I was running too fast on the wet ground and I launched myself into the air and fell and skidded a good 15 feet on my butt!! I got up with mud and grass dripping off my yellow cheerleading skirt just as they announced my name!!! Oh, and my friend's parents videotaped the whole thing!!!
Thanks!

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Thanks for the laugh Michele!

Too funny that we're having blog give aways the same weekend and I asked everyone to share their silly and ridiculous moments!

You know what they say about great minds! :)

Happy 29th ! :)

Rhonda said...

These stories are making me laugh! I wish I had a really funny one...
Once one of my young boys lifted up my shirt when I was talking to several of my uncles at a family gathering!

Pat S. said...

Hi Michele!
Happy Birthday to YOU!!!

Thank you for offering such neat Halloween candy :)

My most embarrassing moment happened at school. It was PE day (gym class) so I wore a skirt & blouse...easy to change into gym clothes. Even wore a half-slip under my skirt...quick and easy. Trouble was...I pulled on the sweats before I pulled off the skirt. When I got out in the hallway, my "friends" told me to look down...I had forgotten to pull off the half-slip with the skirt! There is was, lace and all, hanging over top of my sweats :)

Elaine said...

My story is kind of silly. I had just been shopping and trying on clothes at a nice little store at the mall (I shop there regularly) but had not been in for a while and all the sales staff was new. Well I give them a run for their money when I'm in because I like to do one big shopping trip each season. After about 2 hours of trying on clothes, I bought a bunch of stuff. They were going to steam/press and package it all while I finished up a couple of other quick errands in the mall. I went down the way to another store and tried on a coat and looked in the mirror and shrieked....I had not taken off the necklace that I tried on with my outfits at the other place. I ran back and told the gal at the counter what happened and she started laughing - she said most people wouldn't bring it back and that it was nice for me to have done so...I thought at first that I would keep it but then thought I'd never stop feeling guilty about it, and it wasn't right, so I took it back...If I had not just spent $600 dollars there, I would have splurged for the necklace. ;-)

Angel Wilde said...

I have a few of these stories. One time I was walking through a department store with a friend for quite some time before she asked me why one of my pantlegs was "lacey" at the bottom. I was quite embarrassed to discover I was dragging a pair of panties hanging halfway out the pantleg of my jeans! OH MY!

scfranson said...

One morning I was in a huge rush to leave the house with my family. Having to get a baby, toddler and older child ready along with everything we needed I was really in a hurry. Finally I grab my purse and walk to the door where my hubby laughs and asks me if I was planning on wearing a shirt today ! There I am in my bra with my purse over my shoulder. Happy Birthday !

Happy Birthday. Well there are so many, but I think the most embarassing ones happen to you when you are a child, I was walking home from school with friends (was very skinny as a child - making up for it now) was in parochial school so had on a uniform with a half slip. OK enough said, skinny, half slip, safety pin to pull it tight at the non existant waist, pin opens and slip starts to slip, after several attempts to keep it up over a couple of blocks, lossing the battle, it just slipped down and hit the ground, well you would think it was made of metal, since as soon as it hit everyone's eyes were on it. What else could one do, listened to the laughs and just kept walking. Wonder who has the slip today.

Cindy Vernon said...

First of all happy birthday! I work at a high school and I unfortunately have to get up very early because of a long commute and have many bad wardrobe experiences getting dressed in the dark. I have worn mismatched socks, two different shoes, clothes that don't match ( in the dark, navy blue looks just like black!) and of course I've worn clothes inside out and backwards. My students never fail to notice and needless to say they think I'm a little odd :)!

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

ok the most embarrassing moment was when I came out of the shower and my hubbys friend came over.. ya.. I came out of the bathroom to wlk to our bedroom and ya.. serprised us both! I didn't come out of the bed room till he left! lol

Awesome blog candy! Embarrassing moment --- my son and I were at Target. He was very gassy. He let out the loudest fart ever and everyone smirked like it was me when my daughter calls..."Mooooom, gosh!" I was horrified! I am not kidding, it was my 1 year old son! :) Happy Birthday!!! Lisa K

Betty said...

Yummy candy!! Embarassing moment was when my daughter was 2. I brought her in to work to show her off to my boss and co-worker. Everyone was saying to her You are so cute!!! she got mad and said Shut-Up. That was so embarassing!

Princess Matilda said...

I don't know how to pick just one embarrassing moment. I have so many of them. I've been walking and talking to people and walked into poles. I went to work once with one navy shoe and one black shoe. Oh, wait, in April, I went to work with my shirt inside out. I had no clue until I was in a meeting and a co-worker asked me if it was a fashion statement or an accident. I almost died laughing.

Jane said...

Hmmm...does thinking some old man is your husband and wrapping your arms around "his" waist count as an embarrasing moment? ;-) We were at the zoo with my Aunt and her bowling league from out of town. I walked up to my husband (I thought...was just paying attention to the yellow shirt) and wrapped my arms around him and said "I love the prairie dogs" and this gruffled voice said "I love them too". I looked up and about DIED! And of course my dh, my aunt and all of her friends had a good laugh at my expense (and the old man probably had the closest human touch he'd had in awhile! LOL).

I had the most embarrassing thing happen just the other day. My hubby and I went to our son's football game on Friday night. During half-time, I stood and turned around to talk to a gal behind me...meanwhile, my husband took it upon himself to pester me...a poke here, a poke there, just being annoying. So...what did I do? I reached behind me and slapped him (not hard...just a "quit bothering me" type of slap on his arm), but I didn't even look...and not only did I do it once, but I did it TWICE...OMG...would you believe the cheerleaders were walking behind me at that moment? Yep...you guessed it...I actually slapped a couple of cheerleaders on the arm!!! I wanted to crawl into a hole...but it was sad to say, I turned around and begged forgiveness and said, "I was trying to hit my husband!!!" Was my face ever red!!! Hope you enjoyed the laugh...sad to say it's TRUE!!!!

Alexandra said...

Happy happy Birthday Michele - I can't believe you are giving away such awesome candy on YOUR special day! It really is great! Hmmm....I have had a few embarrassing moments but here is one I will remember for a long time. While in Iraq, the bathrooms were coed little trailer things (we also had portajons). So, here I am with all my gear pushed up around my ears visiting the facility when this young man who worked for me came banging in the stall I was in (no locks) and I am sitting there in all my glory! And, he just kept staring and stuttering, I am so sorry, I am so sorry while I am sitting on the toilet! I wanted to die but asked him to please just shut the door! I don't think he ever looked me in the face again and I know I avoided him as much as possible! Sheeesh! Thanks for the chance at some wonderful candy and I hope your birthday is special!

MEM = I went Downtown for a night on the town with my hubbie. We found a parking spot right in front of the restaurant which had an outdoor eating area on the street. As I stepped out of the car my purse opened and a tampon fell out. I went to grab it and saw a sailor sitting at a table just watching me, knowing exactly what happened. Wanted to die!

Julie Masse said...

Fabulous candy! Hope you had a great birthday!! Ok, embarrasing huh? I know I have them but at this hour I can't think . . . :)

Happy 29th for Monday :) I've been 29 for a couple of years now!
I (like everyone else!) have a bazillion embarrassing stories, but this silly one popped into my mind first... I had been invited to a neighbours party. And on the night it was on I just plain forgot about it. I must have been feeling a bit unwell that night (I very rarely go to bed early!) as I'd had a shower, got in my (very bright stripey pink) pajamas and curled up into bed. I'd just fallen asleep when I realised that I'd forgotten to go so I popped on my pink dressing gown and went to apologise (what?? what I thinking???? I don't think I was thinking). They made me stay for the rest of the party dressed in my bright pink jamies and dressing gown and slept on hair! I felt like the biggest fool! I should have just phoned her!! What can I say? I'm a goose!!!
hugs
Tracy

Happy birthday to you. My daughters birthday is on Monday too. I used to manage a bar. One night my husband (boyfriend at the time) came to see me. When we were closing he said he would stop and get a pizza and meet me back at home. I finish cleaning up and left work. We live out in the country so when I saw a car ahead of me I figured it was my husband. ( who else would be on our small town highway) I decided to step on it and try and catch him. So I pop over the top of the hill, only to go flying by a policeman. Needless to say I was pulled over, but when I told him why I was trying to catch him, he laughed and told me to slow down. Thanks for the chance.

Okay, here is mine: A week before my wedding I moved in the apartment we would share after the wedding. Then I went home to my parents to prepare for the wedding. During this time, my husband moved his stuff into the new apartment. So after the wedding & honeymoon, there were boxes to unpack, wedding gifts to open, and thank you notes to write. I stopped taking gifts out of their boxes and just writing the notes about how much we liked it, etc. Weeks later, after the apartment looked like a home, all thank you notes sent, I opened a wedding gift box that promised a small lamp inside. The couple had placed their gift inside this box. It was a pewter stand and candlesticks with wooden fruit. I had thanked the couple for the lamp that we so enjoyed...ugh.

rebecca said...

I have too many of my own, so I'll share one that involved me but was more embarrassing to my dear Mother. I come from a large Catholic family, so my parents used to split going to the Sunday early and late Mass so they made sure all of us kids went, too. I had just started to dress myself and was very independent even way back then. I fussed around in church, as all 3-year olds will do and there were nuns sitting in the row behind us. They kept making tsk-tsk noises, so my Mother thought it was because I was distracting them from their devotions. When Mass was over, I ran outside ahead of everyone and bent down to pick up something on the sidewalk. It was then my Mother discovered I'd forgotten to put on my panties. I was subjected to "clothes check" for some time after that. Happy Birthday. I've sure enjoyed all the funny stories.

stampingranny said...

Happy birthday! Yummy candy, how seet of you! Gosh as everyone has mentioned, through life we go through plenty of moments we would rather forget, and hope that others do too! On that comes to mind is we were invited to a swankie black dress dinner party, I spend lots of time on the hair and makeup thing ans DH even wore his cologne! (Rare) We arrived at the party and only saw a few cars. We thought perhaps we were just early and not fashionably late! Well we went to the door, and guess what? Wrong day for the party! OMG I wanted to die! We didn't know these people very well and it was surely embarassing! Never got invited back either! LOL! Opps! We have since seen these people at other parties and they were pleasant! Guess we just aren't on their "guest list" anymore! Deb

Peggy S said...

Happy Birthday! We can be whatever age we feel!
One of my embarrassing moments is when I was in my teens I was in an orchestra where the uniform was white button down shirt and black skirt or pants. Well after making a pitstop in the restroom before the performance, I forgot to zip up the back of my skirt. I basically flashed everybody until someone kindly informed me! Weird I didn't feel a draft ! :)

sari said...

happy birthday!!! You wanted something embarressing... this happend to me about 6 years ago.. i had and appointment to the gynogologist...not a dream thing... but something we women have to do, evry now and then... Well my time was about 10 o'clock. I had taken a shower in the morning, but wanted to "freshen" up. Took the towel and used it and put it in the laundry... came to my gyno, that with my luck was a man... there i was with my legs up in the air when he commented : Oh, we have made us extra nice today... I was wandering what he ment with that! Well, came home and my daughter came from school, she was going to a party and she ran to me and asked, mom wheres my towel?! I wondered what towel? She replied: The one i have all the glitter on ( She had a towel with diffrent kind of glitters and stars etc..) I had used that down there..OMG!! I must have sparked like a discoball..... That was the last time i went to that doc.....

My mom and I were doing some last minute Christmas shopping at a very large and very busy mall. I was 16 or 17 years old. We split up to accomplish more faster. I had to tinkle soooooo badly I had to stop. After that quick stop I RAN to meet mom in the parking lot - I was late, and we were on our way to a Christmas party straight from the mall. I was dressed up. I had a stack of packages so high I could barely see and was concentrating on not bumping into people more than anything else as I ran. Unlike you, I felt a breeze but thought it was from my running. Well, ah, I had tucked my skirt into my pantyhose so not only was my butt showing, but the skirt frilled around it like a chicken. I saw people looking at me but thought, oh they are amazed at my running skills in heels with all these packages! Yes, I am amazing!!!!

It was mom who let me know. I wanted to DIE and was on the erge of tears but she just laughed. To this day mom calls me chicken butt.

Shabbychick Junk said...

OMG! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL! I think you should keep all the goodies for yourself and make us more halloween eye candy with it! :)

I have lots of stories too but I'll tell a Chicago one since you're from there. I was in CHI with a bunch of girlfriends and we went out club-hopping. I couldn't last the whole night and decided to take a cab back to the hotel. This guy had been sort of hitting on me all night (I wasn't interested in him), and he walked me out to the cab. The cab got there, and being a little drunk I didn't realize how freakin TALL your curbs are. I stepped off in my high heels,did a face plant in the street and skinned the HELL out of my knee. The dude stood there and said, wow, that must have been embarrassing for you. I shot back at him, "Not really, I'll never see you again anyway."
I still have a scar on my knee...ripped through my panty hose and was a bloody mess when I examined it at the hotel room! Don't tell anyone, ok?

Shh-Shh said...

.. My "moment" was about 16 yrs ago..I still blush when I recall it! so here goes blushing and all!! I had just moved in with my boyfriend (now hubby) We both lived & worked in manchester, and both had a bus to catch to get to work..As usual I had made us both late (Im was not the best time keeper)So we had to run to catch the bus.Picture it me in my smart uniform ..in those days I was so well put together!! (what happened) down to matching underwear and sexy lace top holdup stockings..Why do I mention this..well whilst runing for the bus one of my lovely lace top stockings deciced to fall down!! wrinkle by wrinkle!! At the time i was quite a shy girl ..so you can imagine how horrified I was.. My other half just made it worse by laughing hysterically!!!

LIZZEE said...

I went to work with a Navy Blue Shoe and a Black shoe and we were in a meeting I was up talking when I came back my co-worker kindly pointed otu I was wearing two different shoes.. I wanted to crawl under a rock.. Needless to say at lunch went and bought a pair that matched

I have had so many embarassing moments because my children just don't know when to stop but I guess we will go for one that happened even before children:) I had broken the wiper arm on my car when I was 18 or 19 and my brother and I went to the local wreckers and got a new one. The old dirty guys had seemed to be awful nice to us there and went out and got it for us and even installed it into my car for free!. I was totally amazed. So I had paid and we had left...as we were driving away I had comented to my brother who it only 18 months younger than me and a real smarta@@ decided to mention that it might have been because the buttons on my dress had popped open and I was giving them quite the show the whole time I was there! Need less to say every time I go there I wear sweaters now.

Kristine said...

I work at a daycare, where we wear scrubs. We have alot of shelves high up that we use for storage. One day I jumped up to knock some kleenex down off of one of those shelves, well, not only did the kleenex come down, but so did my pants, while a parent was standing there watching me! He has yet to let me forget that one. I believe my shirt was long enough and I reacted quick enough he didn't get much of a show, but enough to be embarrassing!

Stampin' Meg said...

Haha- love the sweater story-somehow I think we all have one like that in our past!
Happy birthday to you!!!

ktstamps said...

Happy Birthday Day! It is it amazing how many embarrassing stories you have teaching school. OMG! You have to be able to laugh at yourself or you would not be human! Great story about your "HOLY" sweater! LOL!
When I was in my first year teaching, I had to teach sex ed! When every day I had to talk about body parts, how to, lots of sex acts...you get the picture. I had a flip chart talking about the female anatomy. We were getting ready to take a test when this young 12th grader said, “I still don’t understand where my clitoris is?” I was already three shades of red…what could I say. I showed her on the flip chart and asked if she understood. She, of course, said “NO!” Therefore, I had to say it…if you ever over wipe after you go pee and you get a little jolt…that is your clitoris! She turned red, I was REALLY red, and the class went silent. (What could I say?) After class, I asked her if I answered her question. She said “YES!” and left quickly. About 5-7 years ago, I saw her and we talked about that class situation and just laughed so hard we could have wet our pants. Again, have a great day! (I want the blog candy! *wink*) kt

Jan Scholl said...

When I had my daughter no one had given me a shower or anything like that. I had no close girlfriends or whoever does that sort of thing. It was okay as I preferred shopping at Goodwill etc. It was the early 70's and we had tons of school bills. So we went one night to hubby's boss house and they gave me a gift. I dont like presents to begin with (not comfortable with the concept but I love to give them) and I am blabbering about how I hate pink for girls---and I open the box and there is a beautiful pink frilly dress with blue birds embroidered on it. It was gorgeous! But it was so pink!! I think she wore it twice. But I always waited after to open gifts in private or found a way not to be in a position to get any (its another quirk I guess me not liking to recieve gifts)

I have tons of other embarrassing stories-most caused by my kids-but one is enough.

Manic Mom said...

Wow, just found you from Dawn. Your stuff is so cute!!! Will be back to read more later!

Ijsbeer said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a nice one!

I have too many embarrasing stories. I make a fool of myself all the time:P And the worst ones are simply not fit for print. My illness has removed any sense of coordination I ever had which leaves a lot of fun episodes, in particular for my friends. As when I take a sip of my glass but miss on my mouth and poor the whole thing over me. Often in a full cafe! Now I know its because of my illness I can laugh of it.

Let me tell you one from when I was a kid..We where living in Denmark at the time and often went to the Norwegian Church there so we would learn Norwegian and not just Danish & English (I'm from Norway). So they had their anual christmas party and I was 5-6 years old maybe. While we there I "lost" both my parents and could not find. So I was getting hysterical when I saw someone wearing my fathers pants. I was so relieved to finally find my father and ran towards him and give his legs a thight hug. I was small and didn't reach much higher. I was sobbing and telling him how I had looked everywhere for him and how nice it was too see him again. Only to look up and be morrified as it wasn't my father after all! I cried even harder of course and my father ended up finding me. They all laughed when they found out what I had done. Lol. I think I was bright red the rest of the day.

Deb said...

this is a great idea, it is so funny to read everyone elses embarrassing tales. One of the many of mine, was when I was quite small we went to visit my aunt and uncle in their new house for the first time. We kids all went out to play at the playpark nearby but I went back on my own. Wnen I went back into the house I was suddenly disorientated, it was in darkness and the room was the opposite way around to the way I left it. I just stood there speechless looking at all these strangers who were watching tv with the lights dimmed. Then a lady got up, realised what had happened and took me back to my Aunties house, next door! It was a while before my brothers and cousins stopped laughing at that one!
Happy birthday, wish I was 29 again!

Bevie Pearl said...

When I was in High School, during swim class, Ijumped off the diving board and into the water I went...
The only problem was that the top to my bikini bathing suit...popped off.
It was an all girls swim class...but the instructor was a male.
Today it would be a very very embarrassing moment if I even thought about wearing a bikini.
Happy Birthday, my dear friend.
Isn't it fun to be 29 again?
Love,
Bevie Pearl

Happy Birthday!!! Well, my most embarassing moment to date just happened last night at a dance. I saw an older gray haired woman who looked to be about 65 dancing with a younger man about 38-40.They were dancing with a little blond girl and as they danced, I was filled with happiness thinking this was a mom sharing a wonderful moment with her son and his daughter. I was thinking how happy I will be to share these moments with my boys when they become fathers. I stopped by the woman's table and said, "I just loved watching you all dance. Is that your son?" She said, "No actually, that is my mate of 20 years." With egg on my face, I said,"Oh, isn't he lucky?" And she replied, "No, he's the lucky one!" To which I replied, "You're absolutely right." As I slinked away, I thought, "You go girl!" LOL!

Otter said...

Oh what a great blog candy!!! My most embarrassing moment...Walking through the store with a crying baby and a son yelling at the top of his lungs..."Mom she wants your milk!!!!" There I said it!!

My freshman year of high school I played on the JV basketball team. On this particular night after the JV game the girls varsity team also had a game. So while the varsity team was warming up the JV team showered and got dressed before the varsity team would come back to the locker room right before the game.

The head coach and team would come down and then one of the student managers would go back up stairs to get the MALE assistant coach and let him know that it was okay to come into the locker room. Can you guess what happened?!

Well somehow the student manager didn't notice that I was still getting dressed, so she went up stairs to tell the assistant coach that the coast was clear. My locker just happened to be right next to the door, like only 2 feet away at the most. So when the assistant coach came in he saw me bent over in my bra and panties pulling up my jeans! I'm talking full view of my turquoise underwear! (I'll never forget!)

I actually think he was more embarrassed than I was. He was also my history teacher and I swear he couldn't look at me in class for months! LOL!!!

Hi! I just got thru browsing back thru March '07 and I love your blog ... not to mention your latest blog candy offer!

I once picked up the same pair of shoes in navy, black and beige ... and ended up wearing one of each of the black and navy pairs in to work! It was spotted by at least a half dozen kind folk who felt it was their duty to let me know of my error! Sheesh! Now I keep navy at one end of my shoe stash and black at the opposite!

later, alligator!

My most embarassing story is something I will never forget. I think I will forever be traumatized. I was about 14 years old. I was at a bowling alley. For some reason I was wearing a long skirt. I went to the bathroom and was walking around for a while. After about maybe a half hour (the memory makes me feeling it is was about 4 hours) I had an older gentleman tap me on the shoulder. He just pointed at my rear. Apparently my skirt got stuck in my pantyhose and I was walking around all that time with my undies and rear in full view. Like I said, I think I am traumatized. I haven't worn a skirt or panyhose in about 10 years except for funerals or weddings and then I am extremely careful.

O-kay, but this is gross as well! I was a secretary to the director of systems engineering for a large computer company. Every quarter we would have a lunch and everyone would bring something. I made coleslaw. Well my boss invited HIS boss to join us for lunch that day. I was sitting with a friend of mine directly across from both of them. Well, my boss asked who made the coleslaw and I said I did. Not 2 seconds later his boss reaches up and pulls a huge long hair out of his mouth and says, "Well, I think this belongs to you then." As you can imagine I wanted to disappear. I was so embarrassed!! Everyone including him thought it was funny, but I just felt humiliated! I would always find somewhere else to be if I knew he would be stopping by.Well that's it. I have more but this one just sticks out for me!

ONE of my most embarrassing moments was when I was grocery shopping with my son. He was around 5 years old. I had him in the cart as I was shopping. I saw these little Hot Wheels type cars so I took one and gave it to him. He screamed for 2 aisles "I don't want this, I have enough toys!" Totally NOT a normal kid! And I don't think he is yet!!! LOL Anyway, I had to go put the car back where I got it from and he was fine. Strange boy!!! LOL

One of my most embarrassing moments - which one should I pick. The one that really sticks in my head was being on a mini break holiday at a place called Center Parcs which has an indoor pool. Towards the end of the long weekend my hubby decided to tell me that my black swimsuit, which was supposed to be covering all my wobbly bits after not long having had my first child, was actually worn away at the back and quite see through. All weekend I had been walking around in a swimsuit which was not leaving much to the imagination of all the other bathers as to what sort of state my bottom really was in after childbirth. I wondered why all those people looked so green!!! LOL!!

My most embarrasing moment.... my mother in law had boughten me the most HORRIBLE shirt for my b-day and I decided to give it way to the salvation army, with my 6 year old daughter watching the whole time... a few weeks later my mother in law asked if I still liked the shirt and I said Yes, whereas my daughter proceeds to say " Mom, if you liked it why did U give it way????" I turned red and did not know what to say.... Thank Goodness my MIL still talks to me! OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES!!!!

I was at work wearing a skirt, which doesn't happen often. I was walking down the hall and before I realized it, my slip was on the floor around my ankles. One of the men from a different department was walking behind me. I quickly grabbed it, looked at him and said " Bet you don't see that very often!" and continued to my desk! Of course everyone in the office laughed about it for days!!

Hi Michele!
Happy Birthday TODAY!

Thank you for offering such neat Halloween candy :)

An embarassing moment for me was at Thanksgiving a few years ago. I was supposed to take corn pudding to a potluck style dinner with some folks I had met recently.

I had promised to have lunch with my sister the same day.
No problem...I would just cook the corn pudding in Sis's microwave.

Little did I know...my dish was too big to go in her microwave.
And, her oven had just developed a problem and wouldn't come on at all.

I ended up taking my corn pudding "in the raw" to the potluck. Everyone was very gracious about having my corn pudding for dessert, after it had time to cook :)

Apart from the fact that I fall down on a regular basis.....when I was young (19 or 20) I was at a party and flirting (shamelessly) with some boy. I was drinking some sort of mixed drink (rum and coke or something) and it was in a short glass, lots of ice and two of those short really skinny straws. So, I'm leaning into the guy and talking very "suggestively" and I lift my glass up to take a sip and one of the straws goes UP MY NOSE! ACK!

Love your story! When my daughter was younger we were out to a chinese restaurant and she wanted some money to put in the fountain and make a wish. I gave her some money and then when she put the money in the fountain she turned and looked at me in this loud voice and said "Mommy I Wished that you would get a boyfriend". At the time I was single. I think everyone in the restaurant turned around and looked at me. I must have turned every color under the rainbow. She was proud to have done that for me. I just hugged her and sit back down.

Great candy! One of my most embarrassing moments would probably have to be just a few months ago. I was in a huge hurry to get to work (thank GOD it was on a weekend). Got dressed, drove to work, worked for a couple hours, and never realized that I had my tshirt on INSIDE OUT! One of my co workers was nice enought to point it out to me 1/2 way through the day!

Most embarrasing..can't believe I would share this online. When I started my cycle, as a child, and properly put it in the trash...my poodle decided it was fair game..all over the bathroom. My brother who was 2 years younger learned about the cycle of life....

many more as an adult..but I always will remember that...ugh

Happy Birthday by the way! Have a fab one!!!

l..one, of the many times I've been embarrassed, was when I was working retail and had to give a early morning talk on dressing for success and how to present a professional image and afterwards realized that I had worn two different shoes throughout the presentation!!! I was in a hurry at 6am and wasnt sure which shoe to wear then got side tracked and had left the house- Very humbling!!!
