What is the one of the most embarrassing things you have ever done?

I’m sure….whatever it is….I can top it.

By a mile.

Almost.  Every.  Single.  Day.

Seriously.

I could be my own reality show.

Daffodils-arrangementLast week I was running late for church.

I was running late because I started watching this whole thing on CBS This Morning about Bette Midler and how she was playing this famous Hollywood agent on Broadway and the agent was fabulous and so 1970’s with these amazing glasses and she knew everyone and Bette wrote a whole play about the agent and how all the stars would come running when she lifted her little finger and I kept waiting and waiting for CBS This Morning to tell me what happened to the agent and where she is today.

Except they never did.

*sigh*

And all that waiting was for nothing.

And so of course, I arrived to church late.

And frazzled.

With really cute lipstick on.

As soon as I walked through the door my husband saw me from across the room…..

…..and came running towards me.

At a full sprint.

Really.

It was amazing and overwhelming at the same time.

Just like a Hallmark Movie.

Bookcase_Display

It was like he couldn’t wait to get to me.

Like he had been separated from me for weeks or months….instead of just an hour.

I think I even heard the music from Chariots of Fire in the background.

He was getting closer and closer…..almost in slow motion…..arms outstretched.

I smiled and waved and waited.

Because that’s what the girl does in the romantic movies.

Daffodils

And when he finally reached me…..he scooped me into his arms.

Just like in the movies.

And if it stopped there…..it would have been perfect.

Except it didn’t.

Because right after he hugged me and wrapped his arms around me…..

….he reached around and grabbed the stray piece of toilet paper hanging off the back of my dress.

Classic.

*sigh*

Thank you….thank you…..me and my embarrassing self will be here all week. 🙂

    Oh goodness! Bless his heart for looking out for you. I can totally relate as we closed on our secon house eight years sgo; I too proceeded to walk out of the bathroom with toilet paper trailing. Thankfully only my husband saw it and caught it. Embarrassing indeed. LOL, now I always stop by the mirror after I wash my hands and check the front and back for any loose tissue.

    oh Karianne, you are so decidedly poetic! And how sweet of him to notice!! Two weeks ago I went to church wearing my shirt on inside out.... the only person to notice... my dear sweet friend who sits behind us in church!! Yes, I went through all of Sunday School with 25 middle schoolers and 3 other adults, walked through the building greeting numerous people and no one, I repeat NO ONE mentioned that my black 3/4 sleeve t-shirt was on inside out and that they could see the seems. I later asked my husband and my friend whom I sit beside in Sunday Sunday why they didn't mention it.... their answer.. "Oh I didn't even realize you had it one inside out!" Yeah! LOL Have a wonderful day!! And I am so glad you had such a wonderful time at the 400 mile yard sale! I LOVE the cake stand!!

    What a knight in shining armor you are married to!!! Lucky girl. That's true love. And speaking of love where did you find that fabric for your pillows and drapes?? It looks so beautiful and matches a rug I have perfectly.

    What an awesome husband you have!! He totally saved your day. :D One Sunday I fell flat on my face in front of our pastor. Problem was too high heels and this was the day after he had made a wisecrack about how high the women wear their heels and someone was going to get hurt. I had assured him that we knew what we were doing. Pride does come before a fall though, right? ;)

    Hahahahaha! A good and great Monday story to get the week going!! You are one adorable girl......married to an AWESOME husband!! Thanks for the Monday Giggle!

    You are too funny! It's usually on my shoe! I love Bette Midler, so I would have been late too! Your photos are gorgeous!! Thanks for starting my week off with a smile! Hope your week is great!

    Karianne, you're so loveable; not wonder your husband always comes to your rescue! :) This is such a cute story, and I love that you can laugh at yourself; that is one trait that really helps us get through life, isn't it? I have some funny ones to tell on myself, too; it's so good to know we've all done something like that at some time or other. The first time my husband and I ate at the Macaroni Grille several years ago, I accidentally went into the men's restroom. Yep. As I recall, the names were in Italian, and I don't speak Italian, "Capiche?" I came zipping out of there pretty darn fast, let me tell you. My hubs just grinned and shook his head. :) Thanks for sharing your funny story and for starting my day off with a big smile! Hugs to you, Denise

      Denise, I did that but it was in a Super Wal-Mart. I walked in thinking the gal at the sink looked awfully masculine but barely gave her a glance as I rushed to the stall. Then as I was washing my hands I realized that I was in the wrong restroom. The guy at the urinal (who unfortunately came in while I was in the stall so he did not know a woman had invaded their space) was hugging that thing to save his life. I just acted like I was supposed to be there, washed as fast as I could and did not bother with a paper towel, just high tailed it out of there. My cousin who was outside the restrooms waiting for me had cruised as far away from the doorways as she could and still be visible when I emerged. She was laughing. She said she had not had so much fun as she did watching shocked and appalled men leaving a bathroom. I am extra careful to view the signs now on restroom doors.

    I want you to know I can't wait to read what you post. Your stories have so much life in them. Have you ever considered writing a novel? I'm new to blogs and some that I read are good...some not so good...but yours is great!! Thank you for taking the time to make us smile. P.S. I'm an over the road trucker... I own and operate an 18 wheeler hauling cattle. I was in a truckstop in Sweetwater Tx. It was very cold out and I went into the woman's restroom . I had a heavy jacket on that I didn't remove. When I came out I had a line of toilet paper that I had used to line the seat trailing behind me. I was walking around the store like I had good sense. Thankfully one man was kind enough to tell me. Of course he was laughing the whole time. It only took me a second to go back into that restroom.... The walk out of it and back to my truck took forever!!!!

    You are too funny. At least your husband husband tried to save you from totally embarrassing yourself. I too am always running late for church. My husband and boys hate it. So sometimes I drive myself. My loving husband never told me that I had a huge bugger in plain view and that I had lipstick all around my mouth. When I got in the car and saw what I looked like I wanted to strangle him. I don't know if I was more upset about the bugger or the fact that I looked like a clown. This particular Sunday that is happened, I was talking to everyone after the service and my loving family just stood there watching me look like an idiot. Now I always look at myself before I go into church. I love all the milk glass, honeysuckle and day lilies. You take the best pictures.

    Haha... reminds me of the movie "Smokey and the Bandit". I read a lot of blogs, but be sure of one thing, YOU HAVE the MOST ADORABLE STORIES!!! You are Blessed Karianne & a Blessing! ;-)

  11. Image for Sherry Sherry

    OMG! Classic for sure! At least your husband noticed it was toilet paper and didn't think you were starting a new trend....he knows how much you like white. Funny stuff! Have a wonderful day :-)

    This is so funny! I think your husband did a great job saving you. I have worn 2 different earrings, not once but twice. One time in a hurry to go to a lunch tea, I grabbed into my earring supply. I had thought I arranged them according to color and also hanging or posts. Oh I had done that alright. They both felt alike so I popped the into each ear. While at the tea a woman said "do you know you have two different hanging earrings on?" I started laughing and took them off to check. Sure enough completely differs other than they were fish hook. Then while visiting my daughter in California I brought two different pairs of pearl posts. Trying to pack light, lol. Anyway we were out all day, had dinner with her friends had a lovely time. When we returned to her home I I began to get ready for bed and took off the two I realized one pearl was white and the other cranberry. I couldn't stop laughing, I asked her did anyone notice this? She said oh yes everyone did I told them you were making a new fashion statement. So you and I could be in that show together. One day we"ll discuss "tripping on air" a whole other chapter. I love your blog and stories, keep them coming you do a fabulous job! Hugs!

    You have topped any embarrassing moment I've ever had....thank goodness. What a sweet husband to save you at just the right time. It is like in the movies!

  14. Image for Mah Mah

    Happy Birthday to me! Once again I laughed out loud and still have a smile on my face. A wonderful way to start the day.

  15. Image for Marilyn Marilyn

    I think your husband is great! Just wondering--did you ever Google that Hollywood agent? Thanks for sharing. I love your milk glass!

  16. Image for Candace Bertalan Horner Candace Bertalan Horner

    Oh man that is unreal!!! What a great guy you have. My husbands spends half his time laughing at my goofy blunders, I am in high hopes that they are endearing and not too ridiculous!! on a side note, I can't get through a Sunday morning until I hear those opening notes of CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood. It's because I know that 12 miles away, my dear 85 year old Mom is listening to the very same thing... Happy Monday **redfaced hugs**

    You are one lucky women to have a husband like that! Thanks for sharing - you are too funny and for the smiles!

  18. Image for Patricia Krank Patricia Krank

    You do have a great hubby KariAnne. I'm not sure that mine would've noticed! It's good to see that there are several of us who've had the trailing toilet paper experience and that we can laugh about our foibles :) Blessings to you, Patti@OldThingsNew

  19. Image for Lori Lori

    Too funny, I have tears in my eyes! Don't know where you found such an observant man...my husband would never notice!

  20. Image for Karen Karen

    Such a funny story. Thanks for sharing. Kudos to your husband! BTW, the agent's name is Sue Mengers and she died in Oct. 2011. I love Bette Midler - I've heard she is terrific in the play!

  21. Image for kelly@mysoulfulhome.com kelly@mysoulfulhome.com

    My Mom's friend once had that happen in restaurant...I was there. It was a long trail of tp...like the train on a wedding gown! Too funny Karianne!! Thanks for making me almost spit out my tea!! Laughing so hard, right now as to what was going through your mind & his at that very moment! Hey wait a minute though I want to go to that 400 mile yard sale...please do tell about it... AND, I have the same fabric as your yellow & grey, but in the red, citron in my studio!! We ARE soul mates!!! Motto to remember from this experience "always look behind you"! xo, Kelly

    Church goers wipe too, and since it was a Sunday in church I would fully expect them to just say Bless Her Heart and add a silent prayer. Bliss

    I love how you write! Soooo funny. I've had plenty of those days myself. When I was in 6th grade I was in a pageant (I know I could stop right there because it's so ridiculous) and for some reason I was walking down the isle in the auditorium to sit down. I felt like I looked soooo good. Sixth grade, panty hose, short skirt... I was strutting!! My dad, who just happened to be sitting in an isle seat, called me back to him. I bent over to hear what he was saying because he was trying to be quiet. I bent over a little closer and he said "your skirt is tucked into your panty hose". Seriously?!? I was bent over with my butt all perked up with my skirt tucked into my panty hose?? I slowly ran my hand over my butt releasing my skirt, stood up...shoulders back and strutted the rest of the way down the isle to my seat. To this day I run my hand down my butt to make sure that my skirt isn't tucked into anything!!!

    Soooo, apparently you are the daughter I never knew I had because...when I was full term pregnant our cousins flew in and wanted to go to a hot spot on the water for drinks. I begrudgingly went along and had to cross the dance floor...every five minutes!...to reach the ladies room. On the last trip I returned to my seat trailing toilet paper from beneath my enormous maternity dress! But wait! There's more. We had to leave our church building and cross a side street to get our kids from Sunday school each week and one Sunday I stopped in the powder room on the way. Sauntering down the walk, talking it up with those walking along, we waited for the guard to give us the go ahead. Then across the street, thru the courtyard and into the building I went BEFORE some kind stranger with an alarmed looked grabbed me to tell me the hem of my skirt and slip where tucked into the waistband of my panty hose!! My entire fanny was exposed for all to see!! In a church of thousands no one dared tell me until that kind angel whom I will thank when we all get to heaven.

    The ole' toilet paper hanging from your dress gag. Did they fall for it too? Everyone knows we do that just to get laughs. THAT is the ONLY reason. (and I'm sticking to that story) btw, I have the same exact white round Italian platter on your mantel hanging above my kitchen sink. :-) xxoo

    I have never cut my daylilies and put in a vase. I thought they would droop immediately because they are, well, day lilies. Did you singe the ends or anything? By the way, you owe me a new wardrobe for all the shirts with spit coffee on them. Perhaps you should have a on line store that carries Thistlewood bibs for we loyal followers to put on BEFORE reading. Or put a disclaimer at the beginning of the post "Warning Erin Kaven, this will cause you to soil your shirt". Love ya.

    Ha...Karianne.....Like you I too am blessed with a hero for a husband...He has been my knight in not so shining armour.( I really need to clean his armour) it is a little on the dull side...Well i say it has "patina" because he has had it for sooooo long. A few years ago one of my husbands co-workers lost his father......Our plans were to meet at the funeral home for the viewing and service...Well, I got there and went in the room where the deceased was on display(?) Not knowing him really at all I saw the grieving widow and went and gave her my condolences, wondering the whole time where is my husband? After I fluttered around the room like the social butterfly that I thought I was, still not recognizing ANYONE, I saw my husband down the hall talking to a man, I went staight to him and was like "where have you been? I don't kmow anybody in there....YEP....I was at the WRONG funeral.......Bless his heart, he just shook his head and said "Don't worry Love, I'm sure nobody saw you......Lord, I love that man.....BTW...You make me smile everyday....You are so much like the rest of us...and my favorite blog ever....and I don't "do" blogs......But I "do" yours.......Blessings to you and yours......Amy

    The story is hilarious but the pictures are causing my heart to flutter--as usual. You may be the reason I have to take heart meds, but I love the opportunity each time!

  29. Image for Cynthia Cynthia

    Great post, I was waiting for the end with anticipation but did not anticipate that for sure! That is a similar thing that would happen to me. The pictures in this post are beautiful! Cynthia

    I may have you beat. My parents lived two blocks away. I was 8 months pregnant and decided to walk over to visit them. I walked into my mom's house and she went pale. I had walked two city blocks (full of people) with the back of my maternity sundress stuffed into the back of my underwear.

    ROTFL! I don't think we entirely understand the humor in life until we've done this. My TP story was in Aachen, Germany. I had a cute little sun dress on and was feeling so pretty. I went down 2 floors to the bathroom in the building. (Olllllld building.) When finished, I walked through these 2 floors of dining rooms and bar to come to the door to go back to our outside courtyard table. A waiter, 1/2 way across the room hissed at me, "Fraulein!!! Fraulein!!" I, with a somewhat annoyed attitude turned around to see him frantically gesture at my legs. Looking down, I found not only had I tucked my sundress into my undies, but I had a TP tail all the way to the floor. I'd just floated through an entire restaurant like that. I immediatly sat down in the doorway and began to laugh. Shaking my head. Another lesson learned not to feel too big for my britches. My BF at the time was pissed. I got rid of him. I also got to work one night, 1/2 way through looking down at my shoes. Which were not matched. I just laughed. I'm so grateful I don't get embarrassed over honest, silly stuff like that. Life's much more interesting!

  32. Image for Val Val

    Thanks. I have been down and out today and this laugh has made things better. Now if I can just get over my jealously of your mad decorating skills. :) Have a good day and thanks again.

  33. Image for Regina Regina

    Karianne, you make a Rainy Day and Monday just THAT MUCH BETTER! :) Bless you. And I watched that story too, except I just live 2 blocks from church! LOL

  34. Image for Denny Wood Denny Wood

    This is KariAnne's husband. I knew that I needed to act quickly before she turned her back to the congregation. I was rather proud of my effort. Fortunately I can do a few things right...this blogging thing is another story!

  35. Image for Tanya Tanya

    Thank you for sharing your humbling moments with us, I have spent far too much time thinking I was looking pretty good that day only to find a long piece of toilet paper stuck to my shoe. Priceless. Hugs to you friend, have a wonderful week :) xo

  36. Image for Nancy Carr Nancy Carr

    I love you. We must be related. I do silly things like this and just laugh at myself. Your post and comments have given me so many out loud laughs today. Thank you sooooo much.

  37. Image for Maurina Maurina

    Well, I can think of something even MORE embarrassing. And that is moving to a new town at 16 years old, and going to church with the family ( of course late) and running into the bathroom and then walking up to the very front pew because that is where your Dad decides the whole family should sit ( all 7 kids, and you are the last one in line...walking embarrassingly late up the aisle,) and then a kind older lady taps you as you sit down and informs you that your skirt is tucked into your underwear. So your whole bottom has been on display for everybody. On your first day at a new place. When you want to make a good impression. ( And did I mention being 16? ) Not a good memory----but at least there is always a most embarrassing moment to recall should anyone ask:)

  38. Image for Lynn Lynn

    When we were newly married, we went to a church-sponsored marriage retreat. Before one of the early sessions, we ran to IHOP for pancakes. Back at the retreat before the morning session started, I walked in smiling and waving to all my friends, saying 'good morning' and being downright full of myself. It wasn't until we had a break between the morning meeting when I went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror that I realized that my teeth, tongue, mouth and lips were vivid blue from the blueberry pancakes/syrup I had had at IHOP. I asked my husband why he hadn't told me my mouth was blue and he said he thought I already knew!

    I love to read your stories and look at the beautiful pictures at the same time. You never disappoint! How amazing that your man has "got your back." ;) Thank you for the inspiration to smile! ~k.

    Ha ha ha just a stray little piece ???? How about a trail of say........-a foot-.........on the bottom of the cutest pair of high heels as you try to sneak back to your seat at a dinner theatre!!!!! Oh my it sure was embarrassing at the time but I laugh out loud every time I think of it now !! Thanks for the chuckle and I'm sure glad to know I'm in GOOD company :) Kathy

    Hahahahaaaa... snort.. hahahahaha!!! Tears in my eyes here :-) Oh KariAnne... Too much ! The milk glass is wonderfully beautiful, but the mental picture is priceless. Hugs, Gee

  42. Image for Abbey Abbey

    You created some awesome suspense there! Definitely lucky that he caught it so quickly, but yes, that's embarrassing! :) I feel like I have MANY in that vein but at the moment I'm blanking....will come back and share once I remember!

  43. Image for Sandy Sandy

    I thank you for your post today and the sixty-five comments that followed. I sat here laughing with tears falling as I read, and it was the sunshine that lifted my spirits on this wet, gloomy day in Ohio.

  44. Image for Mal Mal

    Too funny!! I have just discovered you today and am so glad that I did! You are a hoot, and thanks for the hydrangea/coffee grounds advice.

  45. Image for Sarah Sarah

    Oh, how funny. Yikes toilet paper. Me?....grabbed my coat, purse and jumped in the car to hit the grocery. Parked at the end of the long parking lot. Jumped out, walked the long aisle in, grabbed a cart and was 3/4 the way through the large produce dept when I hear..."Hey lady, you have a coat hanger hanging off the belt on the back of your coat." Why did I not feel that in the car as I drove? How did it hang on so long? I could have finished shopping and gone through checkout if it weren't for the very "Jerry Lewis, hey lady!" What can ya do....I just had a great laugh over the brussel sprouts.

  46. Image for Patty O Patty O

    Oh Karianne - you do have a way of telling a story! And...I'm so sorry about the TP. It could have been worse...you could have had the back of your dress tucked up in your pantyhose...with no underwear on...like Julia on Designing Women when she was modeling in a style show. :) (I know, I know...yours is real life, hers was just for tv...however, I do know a woman this happened to at a work function...and no it wasn't me.) Have a better day!

  47. Image for Cindy Cindy

    You're right, I can't top that, so I won't even try.:) Your grey and brilliant sunshine yellow is beautiful, I love it! Your blooms are very lovely. My day lilies are orange, not a colour that I can really put anywhere in the summer time. Now if they would wait for Fall, they would be lovely. Cindy

  48. Image for Judi Judi

    Thank you for the deep belly laugh...I almost snorted too! You are such a hoot & just what a rainy day in central ny needed. My most embarrassing moment happened on my summer honeymoon near the ocean when we decided to go to the boardwalk & take advantage of a water slide. But what happened when I went down the slide wasn't so awesome when the crisscross top on my swimsuit was blasted with water like a fire hose. Then I stood up without realizing that the suit wasn't where it should have been. Good thing we would never see any of those people ever again. Of course, my dear husband wasn't quite as kind as yours...he just started laughing!

  49. Image for gina gina

    well, it's official. you sealed the deal with this post. we are connected you and I. when I saw the title of this post, I was convinced you live in my mind! yes, there are millions of other shared references I find on your blog that relate to me. like line hung sheets, little house on the prairie, and many more. But this one really hit home. when my 12 year old son was little he would ask daddy to kiss mommy "just like in the movies!" :)

  50. Image for Tina Tina

    Your stories are the perfect mix of Lucille Ball and Garrison Keller (Lake Wobegon author)!!! I love all THREE of you!!

    Having seen this before, I know how hysterical it is. Bette would have rolled on the floor... Your husband must adore you (and always in anticipation of your antics).

  52. Image for Colette Colette

    I just laughed out loud! Such a cute story, embarassing yes, but one you will tell for years! Thanks for sharing, I needed a good laugh.

  53. Image for debi debi

    he he he!! Cute story.....nice to know that none of us is alone in the game of embarrassing situations. Maybe that's why it's so funny when we see it happen to others, because we have all 'been there, done that'.

    Oh, honey. I hear you. Thank God for husbands and good friends (and husbands who are good friends!). Those photos are absolutely beautiful. PLEASE say some of that greenery is faux. Or do you have that must luscious greenery there for the cutting??

  55. Image for linda linda

    Ha Ha! Too funny...but I can top it...well...sort of....it was a looong time ago...I was in high school...I'm talking a long time ago...we wore dresses and skirts to school then...with slips and everything. I was very small...quite tiny actually...and I wanted to be cool and wear a half slip...I borrowed my sister's...it was too big and kept falling down...so I would go in the bathroom and try to roll it up and then just as I saw a cute boy I had a crush on...the slip fell down around my ankles!! Yes it did!! Cool girl that I was...I stepped right out of that slip and kept walking ...I was devastated...but guess what...a couple days later...he asked me out! By the way...I love your blog...so honest and wonderful and you are a natural!! Keep em coming!!

  56. Image for Sheila Miller Sheila Miller

    OMGosh, that is just the funniest story I have heard in a long time. If we lived in the same town, we would have the biggest collection of milk glass ever. I have a huge tote filled with white vases. I never use them, just collect, scrub and put them in the tote. Thank you, Karianne!

  57. Image for Zolane Zolane

    I...LOVE...THIS...STORY!!! You are delightful, KariAnne, and a great storyteller. And what a dear hubby. I was all set for the Hallmark ending and instead got the "real" one :) We could definitely be great friends, drink sweet tea, and share our most embarrassing moments.

  58. Image for Gwen Gwen

    All I can say is your lipstick looked awesome for this special viewing. :) Oh but I love all the photos. They cheered my day. I even passed them on to my 25 year old as she is just starting to decorate her house. I loved it all. Each photo!!! Thank you.

    When I read about your "tissue issue" it reminded me of only one of my embarrassing church moments. I was listening to the sermon. As usual I was wearing a small silver cross which I seldom take off. My girlfriend gave it to me during a very stress time in my life. I mean she took it it right off her neck and put on mine. That's only one of the reasons is so special to me. Anyway, I felt something unusual. I thought the clasp on my necklace had broke. No such luck. The underside of my bra had broke loose and was climbing up my neck. All I could do was keep my hand in place and wait for a song or or something so I could make my way to the ladies room and remove them both. Luckily,no one saw my moment and I could laugh about it.

  60. Image for Sally Sally

    Oop! IF you just heard something, that was ME laughing outloud! I realize that your hubby had good intentions, but stop and think how many FEWER people would've noticed the toilet paper if your hubby had not been sprinting across the room to reach you to remove it. Wow. Further proof that [plain and simple] sometimes things really just don't turn out like we think they will. LOL Love ya girlie! I love that you are REAL enjoy to share that story.... ALL the stories! Love 'em. Keep 'em coming! ~Sal

  61. Image for Jeannie Jeannie

    Oh, KariAnne, you truly have found your knight in shining armor. God bless him. I have just found your blog, but it has become one of my top 3 favorites. I adore all your stories, and your house is a wonderful reflection of your decorating talent. Love, love, love!

    Well this ONE time I got invited to do a G+ hangout and was super prepared with my pillowcase to demonstrate how to dust a fan and was ready to go an hour before it started but something was up with my email and I COULD NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME find the link to the hangout. I checked G+, email, FB, everywhere and got so flustered and frantic I was breathless when at the very last minute I found it! And then I admitted to everyone watching that I don't shower every day. Sigh. So hopefully you can laugh about the toilet paper incident... eventually. ;-) I'm sure you handled it with grace!

  63. Image for shirley@housepitalitydesigns shirley@housepitalitydesigns

    You can always count on your "knight in shining armor" to rescue you!!....loved it!!...and love those milk glass pieces!!

    My most embarrassing moment came in college. I was babysitting for a sweet family. The girls were tucked in bed. All was well in the house. So, I drifted off to sleep there on the couch. A really sound sleep. When the husband and wife got home, they woke me up. Too bad I didn't know that both of my legs had fallen asleep. I bounded up, frightened by them waking me up. And, proceeded to fall to the ground and take an entire sofa table with me. Including the lamp and all of the pictures. They actually had me back to babysit again :)
