Dressing Room Blunder

 
Recently, my husband and I decided to head up to Khol's, as I needed some shorts and sundresses for this terribly hot/humid summer.

Normally, my only mishaps in the dressing rooms are not being able to get a shirt or dress off; I get stuck, I laugh out loud, end up getting the garment off of myself without tearing it, and all is well.

This time, however, was almost utterly humiliating. No, I didn't get anything stuck this time.

I tried on a few shirts while still wearing my pants, but I wasn't wearing a bra because the cute little sleeveless top I was wearing that night did not need a bra with it. So, after trying on all of the shirts, I grabbed my purse and the clothes and opened the door to the dressing room. Just as I stepped out, I realized I had no shirt on. Yep, nude above waist. No bra. No shirt. Naked. BOOBS!!!

I quickly ducked back into the dressing room, locked the door and laughed hysterically. Oh yes, it doesn't take a lot to amuse me. If there were other women in that dressing room, I'm sure they thought I was a nut case and perhaps I was. Perhaps I was.

Thankfully, my husband and I got through the rest of the night with no other mishaps.

It Happens

Remember the scene in the movie “Home Alone” where the boy (Kevin) is walking alone and carrying two grocery bags.....and then the groceries fall through onto the ground?

Memory..............

Since I was born in 1978, I grew up in the 80's and early 90's so I consider myself pretty lucky. There were SUPER cool toys back then!!

I always had fun toys growing up, thanks to my mom (and the era, ha ha). We had dolls, games and other fun stuff. I have so many great memories of playing with Cabbage Patch Dolls, Smurf game, My Little Ponies, Popples, Pound Puppies, and more!!

One memory recently popped into my head and I admit I still miss this item I had as a child.

My Little Pony Hide n Sleep

A Hide n Sleep is a tent that you put on your mattress, with a sheet attached to the bottom, so your bed is a tent!! My sister and I both had one but I think I loved mine more. I love small, cozy spaces and to me it was like hiding. I would pretend I was camping (funny because now I hate camping), pretend I was in a boat, etc.

That's one of my favorite things that I had growing up!

Did You Know Part VI

A few more interesting tidbits about ME!!

I am a very scheduled person. In fact, some would call it OCD. I have a need to know schedules weeks, sometimes months, in advance or I feel like I'm going crazy!! I have a calendar on my phone; I have a date book for my daycare and a date book for events outside of work. I am also very organized and love to keep track of what is going on and when. I think I'd make a great Event Planner!

I love castles. I'm fascinated with them because they're beautiful and huge but also because of secret passageways and dungeons, tunnels etc. I've never visited a castle but that's on my Bucket List.

I absolutely cannot stand when someone talks to me while I'm vacuuming, in the bathroom, or if I just went to another floor in the house (ie, I run upstairs and they call after me). My husband does this all of the time. I CANNOT HEAR YOU!!!! And it's annoying.

Did You Know Part V

A few more fun facts about ME!

I have a phobia of taking baths!!
Yes, you read correctly. I have a phobia of taking baths. I take showers, I'm not a scum, but cannot take a bath. I took baths as a kid and loved them. I'm not sure when this phobia began and I'm not exactly sure if I'm scared or if it grosses me out.....but I cannot stand it therefore I don't do it.

I'm afraid of the dark!
I can sleep in darkness but that is because my blankets are “protecting me” [eyes rolling]; but I hate walking through my house when it's dark (ie, turning the lights off downstairs and walking upstairs if there are no lights on upstairs), I hate blackouts, etc. I'm not afraid of ghosts, I'm afraid of murderers!

I don't “cry” while peeling/cutting onions.
Sometimes, but not all of the time, my eyes burn and feel like they're burning out of my head, but I never tear up!

I am OCD when it comes to clutter.
I cannot stand clutter. I throw things away and put things in their place but the OCD part is that I throw things away hastily (ie, important mail or papers or receipts) and down the road when we're looking for something I remember I tossed it. OOPS!!!
