  1. Well, embarrassing myself is something I do at least once a week. I say it keeps me humble! But once I ran up to a young man at a mall all ready to hug him hello only to realize once I was close enough that he was a total stranger-a little too eager to hug me right back. Oh, well. Just one of the many! Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. My most recent boo boo. I bought all of the My Little Shoebox Groovy Collection and used a whole bunch of it during NSD. Well, I went to do my acrylic car book to go along with my brand new punch bug, and I can't find the paper. I am freaking out because all of the pictures of Bethanie's Hippie Birthday Party are also in the bag with all the Groovy paper. So, I give up and go to the store and buy all new paper and embellishments. Come home the next day and remember the really SAFE place I put it. So, now I'm having a blast making my acrylic car book and have enough paper to start a new store. Wait my room is a store, but ya know. LOL
    Have a great day and thanks for the give away.
    Have fun on Vacation Heather. You deserve it. Does Kat have to go swimming? LOL
    Hugs,

  3. Thanks for the giveaway! My embarrassing thing is, I don't have a Cuttlebug yet but I bought one of the folders hoping I could emboss with my old QuicKutz tool, or a rolling pin or something. So far, no luck. -- Devanie

  4. I use a power wheelchair to get around and I had just left the swimming pool at the Y. It's easier for me to go home and get dressed afterward so I just wear my swimsuit home. I had a towel under me and it apparently was hanging down too low and caught my wheel and began pulling me out of the chair. I somehow stayed in the chair but really messed up my toes. I ended up having to go to the DOCTOR in MY SWIMSUIT! I was SOOO embarrassed to be sitting in the waiting room in my wet swimsuit, no shoes, no make-up, wet hair, you get the picture! Good news-toes were just scuffed up and not broken. I am going to invest in a cute cover up real soon:-)

  7. There are sooooo many! I called my husband and asked him what "year" of gas I should put in my new car?! Hey, I was raised by a single mom--it's not something that ever came up as I was growing up!! He will NEVER let me live it down, and the whole family gives me a hard time about it! Oh well, at least I make people laugh! :) thanks for the chance to win!

  11. At my 4th of July party, I called my sister's mother-in-law the wrong name (and it was the name of the new wife of my sister's father-in-law.) WHOOPS

  12. This incident wasn't recent, but I was in California on vacation and it was our last night at the hotel. We hadn't been in the pool yet, so decided to go for a swim, I got in and it was too chilly so I decided to go over to the hot tub. The hot tub was full of people and I being self conscious and over weight wanted to hurry and get in. There was a man sitting by the steps, so I decided to go on the other side and not use the rail. I steped down and did a flip into the hot tub. The olympics were going on at the time in Utah and the people in the hot tub were from Utah. They all scored me a 10! My most emberrising moment ever. Thanks for the great giveaway, I'd love this cart. Shari (cricutrookie)

  13. The last thing that embarrassed me was when I got home from work and figured out that my blouse had come unbuttoned and I had stopped at the store so not sure how long it had been that way.

  14. Waited outside the mens' restroom for my kids to come out...apparently they left before I got out of the women's restroom - which I found out after I entered the men's restroom looking for them - HA!

  15. Something embarrassing....
    I sent a bulk mailing of a forwarded
    email that I got to everyone on my
    mailing list. And now I've received
    several disappointed responses.
    Saying they couldn't believe I'd send
    something like that. I NEVER send
    forwards for this very reason! I'm
    so sorry I did this time and promise
    to never do it again. :(

  16. My most embarrassing moment was at my children's school for a very crowded event. My son wouldn't stop pulling on me and as I was walking, he pulled really hard and I flew through the air and landed hard on the ground in front of the entire school. No one said a word or helped me. I think everyone was so shocked that they didn't know what to do. It turns out I totally ripped my labrum in my shoulder and have to have surgery this month. :(

  17. I can't think of anything really embarrassing that happened recently..... BUT when I was in high school I had lots of mortifying things happen to me. My favorite story happened when we went to see the Phantom of the Opera. I wore my best dress and high heels-- a rare occurrence! We were meeting some of my friends there and my family arrived early. We went to the Mezzanine level to check out our seats. I decided to head back down to the lobby to see my friends when they came in. On my way down the stairs I realized that they were in the lobby. I got excited, lost my footing, and slid down the stairs. I guess I like making an entrance!!!

  18. One of my most embarrassing moments happened when my new boss went to the Ash Wednesday service at his church. He came in with something black (ashes) on his forehead. Not being Catholic, I thought it was just dirt. I went in his office and told him that he had a smudge on his forehead. He said, it's Ash Wednesday, Donna. I tucked my tail and left the room in a hurry. I was so embarrassed. I don't work for him anymore but every year on Ash Wednesday, we call each other and have a good laugh!!

  19. I just tried on my bridesmaid dress and realized that it was cut too low (in front of her fiance) and part of my bra was showing! I was mortified!

    Have a wonderful vacation! I am going on the bachelorette's party tomorrow night and we're going white water rafting during the day and just having girl time at night! It should be a blast!

  20. The first thing that always comes to mind is the time I was in NYC for an interview. Hustling through Times Square, my foot completely slipped out from under me (I HATE heels!!) leaving me laid out flat in the middle of the street. Luckily the walk sign was still in my favor but not a single person offered to help me get myself up or pick up my stuff- instead they all just looked at me like I was a complete oddity. Definitely a very uncomfortable/embarassing situation.

  21. I was attending a conference when a break in the day enabled me to visit the shop on premises. While standing in line to make a purchase, I waited behind a customer as the shopkeeper assisted another client. When that transaction had finished, the shopkeeper turned to me and asked if she could ring my goods. I quickly responded, "Oh no, this gentleman is ahead of me." As we were all wearing nametags for the conference, when the gentleman turned to look at me, I could clearly see that his name was "Nancy". She was not a gentleman afterall!! I decided that apologizing would simply make the situation worse, so I opted to pretend that nothing had happened. My beet red face, however, gave away my embarrassment.

  22. Ok I am follower #926... getting closer! :)
    Just last week I went to Wal-mart to pick up one of the new Lite cartridges and a couple of other craft items because I had some gift cards I have had for sometime and needed to use. I also needed to pick up some other house hold items as well. When I got to the register I handed the girl the gift cards then proceeded to slide my payment card. Well, come to find out you can't slide your payment card BEFORE she does the total or it won't take off the gift cards. The problem here is the total was $133 and I had $75 in gift cards that did not go through. (Hubby would not have been happy if I walked away w/o using the gifts cards) So... in order to use the gift cards, the cashier had to call a manager to cancel the transaction, then take EVERYTHING out of the bags and re-scan all the items. She said it was no problem, but when I turned around and saw the line behind me I about DIED. I KNOW what they were thinking and all I could do was apologize the entire time!! I will never EVER do that again.
    Hope you have a great vacation!

  27. I would have to say my most embarrasing moment was when I went to back into my driveway, had the truck in drive instead of reverse, and went forward and hit the car parked in the street in front of me, the worst of it yet, was my neighbors were sitting on their porch and saw the whole thing, talk about embarrasing, OMG! I can only imagine what they are saying now, I do laugh a little about it now though! Thanks for the chance to win the cartridge, would love a chance to win it!

  28. My embarrassing story - I made tuna casserole one night for supper. It is one of my family's favorites! Everyone commented that this was the best I had ever made it and how delicious it was! As I was cleaning up the kitchen after everyone disappeared, I found the cans of tuna that I had set out to add to the casserole, UNOPENED!! I forgot to put the tuna in! There was no way that I was going to admit that I forgot the main ingredient, so I just lifted up the top layer of cheese and sprinkled the tuna underneath, then laid the cheese back down. (Of course, I did this when no one was around!) No one ever found out! Whew!!

  29. HI! Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing cart!! I am a grade one teacher and the little darlings often get tongue tied and call me "Mom" by mistake. Well, one of my little sweeties lives with his Grandma because his Mom passed away a couple of years ago. We were working together on finishing a writing assignment and the little dollie called me "Grandma". I was mortified (I'm not really all that old) and I said "You didn't just call me that!!!" He laughed and said sorry but I reminded him of her. Not sure whether to laugh or cry over this one!!!!! I know using the Summer Vacation cart would make me feel much better about the whole thing!!!!!

  31. Some furniture moving guys were bringing a new bed and I didn't get the message stating what time they were coming, so I was waiting for the call & figured I was safe to take a shower. Of course they showed up then, so I answered the door in a towel. When I turned to walk away about to the bathroom to get dressed, I thought I was holding the towel closed, but I was actually holding it open over my butt! I just hope they were turned away walking to the truck at that same time! I was mortified!

  32. My embarrassing moment was 4th of July. We were roasting marshmallows and I am very anal about cleanliness and not having the marshmallows burn or catch on fire. Well I had 2 on my stick and I looked over at my son and said hey you are about to burn that be careful! He looked at me and said like you? Of course mine was on fire. I did not realize how quick they go up in smoke...My son was so happy for getting me and all of our friends were laughing at me all night. It was funny but embarrassing for sure. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  33. My most recent embarrassing moment was in church a couple of weeks ago. I have a 20 month old little girl who likes to pull down on my shirt and bra and grab my boob and say "Be bo boobie" (she was breast fed for the first year). Well at home I just usually brush her away, pull up my shirt and keep going about my business. I was holding her at church while I was standing in the hallway, talking with a friend. There were many people going through the hall at the time and my daughter pulled down my shirt and bra and says "Be bo boobie." Just like always, I just brushed her away and pulled up my shirt.....later realizing that she had pretty much exposed me in the hallway and who knows who might have seen what. :o

    Thanks for the chance to win this cart. I would love to get one, but I haven't had much success at finding it locally.

    Hugs,
    Amy ♥

  34. I was helping with a wedding this weekend and it was for some dear friends! I was in the kitchen and it was very hot and I was sweating up a storm! I love the movie "Fools Rush In" with Selma Hayek and Luke Perry. One of my favorite parts is where the parents of the Luke Perry's character are in a boat on a lake with the parents of the Selma Hayek's character near Las Vegas. Selma Hayek's character's parents are from Mexico and Luke Perry's character's parents are from New York. It is fiendishly hot and the parents from New York remark that the white people are melting. The groom is from India and I love him dearly while the bride is from the United States whom I also love dearly! Well, I was quoting from the movie since I was so hot and I said, "The white people are melting." The bride's mother started laughing and I said,"OMGosh, I didn't mean it like that!" I was so embarrassed! Thank goodness none of the guests from India were in the room! I would have felt terrible as they are all so sweet and probably would not have understood that it was a quote from a movie! Definitely a case of open mouth, insert foot!

  35. This was only embarrassing in front of my family and a stranger. I used to be a bartender I quit about a year ago to stay at home w/ my kids. So anyway I get this phone call from a guy I thought I knew, telling me I was his favorite bartender and he was always impressed at how great I was at my job. And he just opened a bar and wanted me to come work for him. After thanking him 100 times, he finally convinced me to take the job part time. He then proceded to call me by someone elses name. He had called the wrong #. I was sooooo embarrassed. Needless to say I'm still a stay at home Mom. lol

  36. I really can't think of anything embarrassing but I guess I am horrible at keeping my scraproom clean and when people come over I forget to close the door. The look of horror when I tell them it is also the guest room is priceless!

  37. I just walked around all day yesterday with my zipper down. when I realized it we already went grocery shopping at Walmart of all places and to the beach with the kids.

Yup....I no longer were strapless anything! ;)

  39. I am on holiday too! My most recent embarrassment happened a few days ago while we were at the Magic Kingdom. We were getting ready to go into the Pirates of the Carribean ride and I was trying to make sure that all my 4 kids were together. My ds Jake stopped to look at something and I went to hurry him along by grabbing his shoulders and ushering him to catch up with his siblings by taking him by the shoulders and gently steering him towards everyone else. Well it WASN'T JAKE!! Oh I was so embarressed! I know those people thought I was probably trying to steal their kid but with 4 of my own I have enough believe me! LOL I apologized and then quickly left caught up to my own family, Now waiting for me to catch up. LOL!

  42. An embarrassing story - here is one just after I gave birth to my twin boys (17 years ago)
    You know how they tag you and your babies to make sure there is no switching. Well in my case I had multiple tags on. One for Baby A and Baby B. That is how they label them when it's multiples. So I had just been handed one baby and then he was put back in his bassinet. The next baby was handed to me - and I said "you already gave me baby B". The nurse politely corrected me she had not. She showed me the foot and wrist tags to match. That is the only time I have ever made the mistake!

  43. Can't follow you. It tells me this blog doesn't exist when I click on the follow button. Can't think of anything embarrassing right now but I am sure I have done something. Maybe it was so embarrassing that I blocked it from my memory. Would love to win this cartridge though.

  44. I would LOVE to have this cartridge! What a sweet mistake for you to make for some lucky blog follower!

    I've done many embarassing things in my life, but can't think of anything recently... I did realize that I had my shirt on inside out over my swimsuit when we got to the lake on Saturday! Oops!

  45. Just the other day, I got too involved in my scrapping and burned dinner. Never noticed the smell, never heard the timer!!

  46. I have never bought the same cart but I have bought the same Cuttlebug folder, stamp set, sticker set, etc. thinking I needed it for a project but then finding it in my stash so I must have bought it on the previous trip to the store for that "project" that still has not been done. My most embarrassing moment was my DD did something really funny at a party and I started laughing so hard I started to snort. It became silent and everyone looked at me and then starting laughing because of my snorting.

  47. So, I really wanted to get some candy, but I REALLY shouldn't have been getting any candy. I dug up as much change as I could and paid for a bag of swedish fish and a bag of sour patch kids in all dimes and nickles! LOL! The girl at CVS wasn't very amused.

  48. Great giveaway! I would LOVE to win a summer vacation cart! As for embarrassing things, hmmm, unfortunately I do lots of embarrassing things all the time. Usually involves spilling some type of food or beverage on myself. :(

  49. My most recent embarrassing moment is when I passed loud gas in a business meeting. I just bent over to reach some paperwork and it slipped out. I turned beat red!!

  53. We were at Raging Water last summer waiting in line to get on the bus that would take us back to the parking lot. I had a bunch of stuff in my hands, towels, bags, and a kid. So the bus comes and as I was stepping in, my shorts dropped to the floor leaving my underwear exposed to everyone. My shorts were really loose and I really couldn't hold on to them as I was getting on lol I guess I gave everyone a show

  54. One of the most embarrassing moments - Oh, to pick just one! I was at WalMart. My little girl had to go potty, and of course I took her to the bathroom. She was sitting in a stall, talking up a storm with me. I looked through the crack to make sure she's Ok, and to ask her if she's done - right when I look another person comes walking through the door. I looked over at her and she gave me the most terrible look. Once she figured out that my child was in there she smiled. I didn't think how it must look - a lady staring in through the crack of a stall. Oh, well. Anyone that has been around children understand how it is. :) Thanks so much for a chance!!!

  55. My embarassing moment. We are at the 49ers football game, and the guy behind me spills a full beer on my head and down my jacket and back. He apologized multiple times. I turned around and said "next time give me a hot dog to go with that beer!". It was a cold night in San Francisco, and I was really cold the rest of the night. We had to take the crowded bus back to BART and the whole time I smelled like beer and apologized to the people sitting near me.

    Thanks for the laughs ladies.

  56. When my first child was a toddler, I joined Weight Watchers and lost quite bit of weight. My usually- self-conscious self was feeling very confident and sassy. I went shopping and purchased new clothes to fit my fabulous new figure and then took my son to playgroup in my new outfit. I walked in the door, fell right off my platform espadrille and flat on the floor in front of everyone in the room. So much for feeling cute and confident!

  57. I went for a sonogram today and brought my CD that they will record images for me. I was amazed I remembered to grab the CD case and even told her that, but then when the technician went to open it, the CD was not in there. I must have left it in the computer at home. Just another thing to blame on my "baby brain."

  58. I had all three of my grandchildren at the public pool for July weekend. I am 53 young. I walked up to the side of the pool to tell my grandson I would be right back with the food to get out and dry off.

    I was wearing flip flops and the kids were splashing water. My flips flops got really wet and I slip and reach for watch ever I could to try to stop my fall and push this 82 year woman in the pool and as she was falling she grabs to brace her fall and the life guard fell in too.

    I began to say I am sorry and getting in the pool to pull the old lady out and feeling like such a fool.

    The worst thing is, if there could be such a thing is the old lady was not there to swim, so she was fully clothed.

    My grandchildren would not even sit with me after that, they were ashame. I felt so bad.

  59. Thanks for the chance to win. When my son was small, we were working on potty training. At the time we were renovating a bathroom in our home. I was so intent and otherwise occupied that I failed to notice that my 2yr old went potty in a display toilet in the showroom. I found at by him tugging on my pant leg , then proudly announcing that he was a good boy and used the pot! LOL!!!

  62. Most embarrassing thing lately....let's see. I guess it would be when at 9:20 in the morning one of my precious 6th grade math students told me that my pants were unzipped. She was very discreet, and oh so sweet about it, but it had obviously been that way since I left home 2 hours before. Nice.

  63. I was checking out cartridges on e-bay, because someone had given me an e-bay gift card (yippee), well anyway, I just typed in Cricut carts and I impulsively bid on the first one that was listed at the top, won, and did not get to buy the cartridge I actually wanted, til later that is;) Thanks for the chance to win.

  64. My most embarrasing moment happened when I was dating my husband. We went on a picnic and were playing catch w/ a softball. I was running and didn't see the mud hole, slipped and got covered in mud. The good news was, I had a basket of laundry in the car that had some clean clothes in it. The problem was I was covered in mud. The solution, go down to the creak, undress, wash off and put on my clean clothes. Once in, I realized I didn't have a towel or a blanket, nothing. When I heard my bf/hubby coming, I yelled "Honey,bring me something to dry off with". When he didn't answer, I yell out again. Nothing. I decide to brave the elements...right into the arms of a sherrif...ugh, imagine my surprise. Better yet, imagine his. :) I don't get to live that one down.

  65. i was so embarrassed when i was at the library. i had went to college with a young girl who works there. i hadn't seen her for a while and i asked her when she was due.

    she said she had had the baby 3 months ago...i was mortified.

    she was wearing a top that looked like a maternity top and she still had her *baby* belly.

    what do you do? i apologized over and over and she was very nice but i wanted the floor to open up and swallow me.

    i have never ever asked anyone that...no matter how obvious. which is sad b/c it's almost as embarrassing to seemingly not notice and remark on a blessed event like that...sigh!

  66. Ok, true story. I'm retired, live in Florida and wear Birkenstock sandals most of the time so I have them in several different colors.

    The other day, I left the house to run errands and it wasn't until I got home later in the afternoon, that I realized I had on one navy blue sandal and one light beige sandal. LOL

  67. I was meeting with a dentist and his staff to do a working interview. Everything went great during the working interview, the staff was great, the doctor was so kind I was ready to start the fill in position as I was walking out to get into my car, I opened the car door got in and was looking for my keys in my purse and as I was looking around IT was not my car, the car next to me was gray as mine was too. The worst part about it I parked by the front office window and they all were chuckling at me and my embarrassment. I backed out of doing that job, I found a more permanent position.

  68. So..... I was walking down the stairs at a hotel and my heel of my shoe caught the corner of the step and I fell down the stairs, when I got to the bottom my face fell right in my pocketbook. Oh it was a sight I'm told!!!! Oh and I haven't bought two of the same cartridges yet!!! I don't think it would be something impossible for me to do however!

  69. This story has already been told - but I'm so glad that I'm in good company! Recently, my husband dropped me off at the grocery store while I ran in quick to get a few things. He was waiting outside in the car, but when I came out, I got into someone else's car that looked just like ours! The man driving was very surprised.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  70. If I could get more organized, maybe I would not buy things I already have! Perhaps when my children are grown, I can get it together.

  73. I was recently bidding on a cart on Ebay. The final seconds counted down to zero and I realized I had bid on the wrong cartridge. I already had that cartridge. I thought that I would have to purchase it anyway. I emailed the seller and, thankfully, they were able to cancel the transaction. Whew! I did not want to end up buying one that I already had.

  74. Do I really have to tell an embarrassing story and relive it all over again? Okay, a long time ago at a school dance, I tripped over some electrical cords and fell flat on my face in front of everyone at the dance. Of course, I got up and walked away like had happened. :-) I was sooo embarrassed and I am sure I was talked about the entire night and the next Monday at school.

  75. OK - don't laugh. Recently in a Pilates class, I wasn't feeling well, and some gas slipped out. I was mortified.

  76. Oh my, embarrassing myself is something I do quite easily! Perhaps the most recent was at our annual Fourth of July party. One of the annual events includes a cherry spitting contest. With 100 pairs of eyes on me it was my turn to spit. I spit and nothing came out, or at least the cherry pit didn't come out. Everyone had a very good laugh.

  77. Gosh - I went to work with one blue shoe and one black shoe. I didn't realize it until I noticed my manager looking at my feet and smiling!

  78. I lost my keys at the store!! Well--okay, THOUGHT I lost my keys. I searched my car, searched the store, sent my husband in to do the same, gave customer service my phone number in case they showed up. This went on for at least half an hour until my husband called my cell phone and said "Just come out to the car". Of course, there they were hanging from the driver's side door. True Story!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  79. This embarrassing moment happened very recently and it was at my son's expense. He had what we thought was a spider bite on his leg, so I took him to the local clinic that was opened on a Friday night. The doctor decided it was extremely infected, so he gave my son a shot that was supposed to numb the area. I am not sure it worked. The doctor started to pack his leg with guaze and I mean a lot of guaze! As I was watching my son clench his fist in pain, I guess I must have fainted because a moment later I heard the nurse yell get a wheelchair. I was wondering what was wrong with my son. Then I realized it was for me. The next day he had to go back for a re-cehck and I was announced as the lady who fainted. I am sure glad I wasn't the patient. Who know what would have happened. I think I will stick to papercrafting!

  80. My most embarrassing moment was at a hockey game a few years ago. If you've seen the movie "Princess Diaries," then you know the scene where Anne Hathaway accidently falls on the bleachers. Well, while I was climbing over a row to get to my seat...I did the exact same thing. Only this was in front of over 10,000 people (we were in the lower section of the arena). I wanted to find a place to hide for the rest of the night. And boy did it hurt. :)

    Thanks for the chance to enter! Good luck everyone.

  81. Oh I have had so many embarrassing moments. While at a restaurant one time I headed out to the car first while the family paid the bill and went and sat in the backseat of our red car. When another family came up to their red car I slowly realized that nothing in that backseat looked familiar. They didn't have a sense of humor! I'd love to win your giveaway and no I don't already have it!

  82. I was checking out at the craft store and was in a hurry because I stopped in on my way to work, I swiped my credit card and it was taking forever so I said to her "this is really taking a long time" She looked at me and said "Yes it is, all you have to do is hit the green enter button!" I was really embarrassed that it was me holding up the transaction!

  83. Embarrassing, I am a mother of two. My oldest Anyce, 3 and my youngest Zayden, 2 months. So, needless to say Im still getting adjusted to having two children. I walked around like a zombie for awhile. Im no longer a zombie but I have my mommy moments!!! Well, I was pumping( I breastfeed) and fell asleep while pumping. My daughter comes in wakes me up and says "mommy, your just like a cow. Can you make me milk too" I was so embrassed b/c my husband is just standing thier laughing.

  84. It was on a Wednesday and I was interviewing for a job at the fire department where my husband worked. The Chief told me he would be doing the notifications on the following Tuesday (almost a week away). The next day I went to work at my department and at about 6:15 in the evening, my cell phone rings. I recognized the phone prefix as being one of the numbers where my husband worked, and since he was on duty that day, I knew it was him calling me. I answered "Hi, buttface!" and it was the Chief calling to offer me a job!!! Oops...I still go the job though. Heehee. The Chief loved that story and told it at my graduation from our fire academy and again at the Christmas party. LOL!

  85. Just a few days ago, I tried to get in the WRONG CAR at grocery store!! Talk about embarrassing!!

  86. This spring my allgergies were causing a cough from a little tickle in my throat.
    I am a grocery store cashier so I have to talk a lot, and of course no one wants you coughing on their food. I was going through my fair share of cough drops.

    Well I had just popped a "Halls" and was leaning forward slightly adjusting the till. Apparently my mouth was watering more than I realized because when I opened my mouth to say hello, I drooled.

    Which is WAY worse than coughing.

  87. Let me preface by saying I work in a hospital. When I was entering a patient's room late in the evening, the lights were all off. After I stated who I was, I asked if I could turn on the light and said, "Watch your eyes" The patient kind of giggled and I didn't think a whole lot about it. She held a normal conversation with me, I did what I needed and got ready to leave... then I noticed on her communication board that the patient is blind. And I tell her to "watch her eyes" Wow... talk about mortified!
    Can't wait to go back through and read all of these comments! Good luck getting 1000 followers- not too far off! :-)

  88. My most embarrassing moment was when I was pregnant and being asked by a shop assistant when my baby was due I returned the question and asked when hers was due only to discover she wasn't pregnant! I slunk away after muttering apologies.

  90. Well I can't remember something really recent but I do remember not to long ago, I had a small Circle my windshield. I was driving in my moms car and next to us was a car with a huge crack in the windshield so my mom turned to me not really sure what she was asking and asked has your crack spread. We could not stop laughing after I turned to her with wide eyes and said excuse me. LOL esabatine at gmail dot com

  91. I wear a smock where I work. I had worn a blouse that day that snapped up the front. When I got off work, getting in my car I took off my smock and accidently grabbed my blouse and unsnapped the darn thing right out in the parking lot. I felt like an idiot...

  92. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to win this cart. That is so nice that we can take advantage of your mistake of buying the same 2 carts.

    One of my most embarrassing moments, I went bowling one time in a skirt and the floor was wet.....can you imagine what happened next... yep!!!

  93. I was shopping with one of my daughters, we left one store & drove several miles to the next one, as we were walking to the second store I realized I didn't have my cell phone which I had just used at the first store. We looked through my purse & the car & couldn't find it so drove back to the first store. We were parked next to where we had been before looking under cars etc. My daughter started to change her daughters diaper & started laughing. My phone was in the diaper bag inside a diaper with the ringer on silent.

  94. We went out to eat with the family - all four kids. The 2 with autism have been oil and water since birth. In the middle of the crowded restaraunt my son got upset at his sister and started making a gagging/throwup noise becauseitmaqkeshis sisternuts. Shethen starts yelling "call 911, John has to go to jail" which makes John pretend to gag louder and longer which makes her yell,etc... I wanted to hide or disappear or laugh out loud.

  95. My dad passed away 16 years ago, and I TREASURE the pictures I have of him. Well suddenly my favorite picture that my Aunt had sent to me was gone. I tore the house apart, finally emailing her and asking her to send me another copy of it if she could. Last week I went to look through my childhood scrapbook, and lo and behold there was the "missing" picture already scrapbooked. GOOD GRIEF! LOL!
    thanks for the chance!

  97. Well, I haven't bought two of the same carts but I've purchased way too many doubles, triples and sadly even quadruples of other items! On vacation in Florida, my almost 6 yr old DD wanted to go out further in the waves but we went a little too far and a huge wave crashed down on us... pulling my bottoms to my knees but I was so panicked about the water coming up over her head I had grabbed her and was holding her up in my arms till I had surer footing and couldn't pull my bottoms up for what felt like forever! Thanks for such a fun give away, have loved all of the stories!

  98. Thank you for this "challenge". I have loved reading these. I teach engineering classes and had one class of about 150 students (mostly male). One day I was wearing a bra that has a little hook/clip in the front rather than the back. It also has nice smooth molded cups. As I pointed to something on the board, I felt the clip open and the nice molded cups started moving apart toward my sides. As if that wasn't bad enough, as a woman in her mid-fifties, some of my body parts tend to head south if not supported. So..., the "girls" did just that! I can't imagine what my students thought as one pair separated, heading toward my sides, while the real set started heading toward my waist. Needless to say, I grabbed a page of notes and held it in front of me for the remainder of a class (which I cut a bit short).

  99. I have a 4 year old little girl and whenever she is acting silly I always tell her "You're Crazy!"
    Well one day when we were paying at the grocery store and I stuck my tongue out at her trying to make her laugh and she looks at me and then looks at the clerk and says "Sorry, my mom is crazy and nuts!" OMG I felt like a child!

  100. I have done this many times and it is embarrassing every time. I will be shopping with a friend and she walks away. I then continue the conversation with a total stranger. I then look around and the person is looking at me with utter confusion. I think it may have something to do with old age.

  101. My embarrassing moment was when we went to visit a water park in Texas one year...I was being really brave and wearing a 2 piece suit (which I rarely do) I was coming down a water slide and the top completely came off!!!!! This is all in front of adults and little kids...and to make things worse...I am not small in the chest!!! UGH!!! I was horribly red...and not from the sun!

  103. I was in a hurry to get to the bathroom at a Kmart store, (not my local Kmart). I went in and stepped out of the stall and a man walked in. I thought poor guy, he walked into the wrong bathroom. I washed my hands and walked out... to find out I was the one in the wrong bathroom!!!! yep...to make it worse later in the store the man was with his family and they all turned and smiled at me. Oh geesh!

  104. These are some great stories, ladies!

    The other day I was outside watering our garden and when I went to cross over the fencing, my pull string tie on my shorts caught one of the fence polls as i was crossing over and I fell over it. It caught me off guard, scared me a bit and I quickly pulled myself back up and looked all around
    hoping nobody saw me take that fall! Ahh yes, one of those moments!

    Thanks for the chance to get a copy of this cart! I'd love it! ;)

  105. Don't feel bad. I went to take my physics board the other day. I decided that I better use the restroom before I go into to start this two hour test. I get back go through the directions with the man walk into the testing room (with all the other people) sit down at the computer start taking the test. I reached down and great I just walked down the hallway into the office, into this room with toilet paper stuck to my pants. Talk about embarrassing.

  106. Today after I had our carpets cleaned I looked down and my nusing pad was showing out from my v-neck shirt. There's no way the guy didn't see it! He probably had no idea what it was. ;)

  107. When I was at my friends house my tummy started rumbling. I thought that I could quietly relieve a little discomfort and pass gas while she was in the kitchen. Well I had no idea the toxicity of the gas. She came out soon than expected and I noticed that she was looking in the corners and had a strange look on her face. Well she went to the bird cage to make sure it was still alive and I finally had to tell her it was me. So embarrassing. I hate being so gassy. : (

  108. This didnt happen recently...I was going to this one church and had to use the Ladies room. I was coming out of it and didnt know that my dress wasnt completely down. How embarrassing! A lady had told me what the problem was. There were men standing nearby too.

  111. I came out of the grocery store, buggy full and couldn't find my car... I was so upset I called the police thinking it had been stolen. As I sat there with my ice cream melting, and tears streaming down my face, the cops show up and ask me to describe all kinds of things, how long I was in the store, did I lock my doors, things like that. When the cop asks me what I kind of vehicle I drive I quickly respond a silver dodge neon, and then quickly correct myself to a brand new blue trailblazer that I bought earlier that morning... the cop took the remote out of my hands and hits the panic button, it was about two aisles over, I had had such a hectic day I couldn't even remember I had bought a new car... The cop really wasn't sure what to say to me, but he did help me put the groceries in my brand new SUV... :)

  112. One of my most embarrassing moments was when I tried to exchange my worn jeans thinking they were my husbands new ones (he needed a different size). I wasn't looking closely, put them up on the counter and asked for the other size. The clerk suggested that I should be in the women's department and I was really puzzled. I thought he was a little "off". I had the receipt and insisted that it was for the men's dept. Then I read the tag on the inside...a few sizes smaller than my husband. We all had a good laugh.

  113. I was visiting my brother they other day and asked him where the poster I gave him for Christmas was and why he didn't have it hung! It fit his personality so well I could not imagine that he didn't like it. He acted like he had no idea what I was talking about and I felt a bit put out and made it clear to him. Yesterday I was cleaning out the spare room closet and guess what I found the poster tucked away safely as to not get bent! Opps guess I didn't wrap it with the rest of the gifts. The good news is I have part of a Christmas gift ready for this year already! I hope he forgets our conversation by Christmas time :) How embarrassing!

  114. Thanks for the chance to win. I think my most all time embarrasing moment was when we were renting a house and I was on the toilet and the toilet tank broke shooting water every where. I was so embarrased that I had to call the landlord and tell them that I broke the toilet

  116. Thanks for the chance to win!!

    I don't get embarrassed too often but the most mortifying one ever was when my pants split right down the middle in highschool!! I had to beg a friend to let me borrow their sweater to tie around my waist until my now mother in law could bring me some sweat pants. To make things even worse this guy that liked me decided to pants me in front of everyone during lunch. I think that will forever be the most embarrassing thing. Everything else I think I can just laugh off.

  117. I took my jeans off in a cemetery. Yep. I found out exactly what it would take to make me rip my clothes off in public. Long story short, after several hours of helping my husband set a headstone for a family member, on the day before Halloween, knee deep in mud, with more rain threatening to fall any minute, we were worn out. After loading all the tools and scraping all the mud off, I had one more stop to make to put out new flowers at another grave. While replacing the flowers something crawled up my pants leg and started biting me like crazy. I could not get it out so the only logical thing to do was ditch the pants, squeel, and dance around like a mad woman in my granny panties. My husband was laughing his head off and I looked up and realized we were about three blocks away from the state highway with cars buzzing by.

    Thanks for hosting the contest.

  118. Hmmm...I have to pick JUST one?! Well, one that sticks out in my head is when I was walking down the stairs to my train station, and one of my shoes fell off and rolled all the way down the staircase. I almost rolled right along beside it, but I grabbed the handrail just in time! Two people also on the stairs were quick to try to come to my aid as I started to fall...but giggled too as they watched my shoe roll. UGH!

    Hope your vaca is awesome!

  119. I have a TON of embarrassing moments, one of which was the first time I ever met my (then future) mother-in-law and she said something to the effect of not liking parties. I called her a liar, with the same air as if she was my best friend saying she didn't like chocolate. I had forgotten that although I felt I knew extremely well from all the time my now-husband and I had spent talking, but she barely knew me from Adam. Thank goodness she was completely OK w/ me calling her bluff and laughed all the more about it b/c she actually LOVES parties.
    What I have found is that when we can be transparent about our mistakes like Heather, we show are humanness and people like us all the more because of it!
