ooooh no... Kids say the darndest things right?? One of the most embarrassing things that happened to me was when I was younger... When I would laugh really really hard I would fart!

My Mom loves to tell the story of how, as a baby, I let out a huge burp in a nice restaurant. (These days I try to keep 'em a bit less conspicuous ;)

I think most of my adult life embarrassing moments have been blocked from my mind as I can't come up with one. When I was a kid, I was so quiet all the time so when had to speak, I was always embarrassed and even more so when I had to talk to a boy. I think even my hair turned red from all the blushing ...

Kris B said...

I have a whole lifetime of embarrassing moments! The most recent, not reading the sign on the door and walking into the men's bathroom! Lucky for me it was unoccupied!

Christine said...

I went to a disco with some friends and in one area there was karaoke. My friends wanted to sing a Britney Spears song, but I didn't want to.
So they didn't stop persuading me. When we were on stage and sang I realized that my voice was The only one that could be heard. The other microphones were turned off!

Lillian Child said...

Kids and grandkids say the darndest things! I was publicly chastized by my THREE year old grandson when I asked him what game he was playing on his computer ... he just rolled his eyes and said, "Grandpa, it's an iPad, not a computer". Silly me!

cm said...

Great topic ~ and hard to narrow down one from the slew I can draw from. Most embarrassing come from my teaching years, esp. calling students by the wrong names, not just once, but for days on end! Thank heavens they were good-spirited about it! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity and the day-brightening, smile-making conversation.

Indy said...

Great cards...DT ladies! Embarrassing moment...I was in Cedar City with a bunch of friends. We were picking up some stuff at Walmart. Of course I had to go to the restroom. So I go zipping in the restroom on the right and come across MEN! The men and women's restrooms were in the reverse order than the ones at my local Walmart! Yikes!

MiamiKel said...

Oh my goodness, such inspiring talent - you girls are starting my day with a huge smile seeing these charming cards! And your big bum comment has me rolling!

I have many most embarrassing moments - but the one that stands out most recently was 'auto-correct' ... I'm in a group of christian women and thanked them for listing me ... only it typed - and posted - "thank you for lusting me!"

Took awhile to get over that one! xoxo

Carol said...

Kids say the darnest things as I have had my grandchildren do the same! But you just got to love them!! I have not had an embarrassing thing happen to me in so long, that I can't remember any from even being a child. It must be my quick charm that I learned from my hubby that makes every moment funny and not embarrassing.

Tracey McNeely said...

Love this new set, the Cows are the cutest.

{Chrissie} said...

Hmmm... I have embarrassing moments all the time!!! Probably when my son came into my work and told my boss, "Oh, I've HEARD about YOU!" I was mortified because I've never said anything bad about him at all (he's a really nice, older man)! So, when I asked my son about it, he said, "Well, all I meant was that he had a cool dog!" WHAT??!! I had to explain it later to my boss so he didn't think I was saying anything bad about him! EEK!!!

{Chrissie} said...

I also just shared this fabulous post on my FB page!!! Thank you for such an awesome Birthday Celebration!

Amy Kolling said...

Ummm....lots of embarrassing moments here but I'll share one!

So I'm a dialysis nurse who works with patients at several hospitals. The ICU at one hospital is brand new (like 2 years ago). So a few months ago, I needed to use the bathroom and went to use the bathroom I'd always used for two years to only find out it was occupied. So I waited. Then I realized when a man came out of it and a woman came out of a door right next to it (and that there were the man sign next to one door and the woman sign next to the other door), that I've been using the men's bathroom for TWO years!!! Oh well.....it was just as clean as the women's bathroom!!!

Chris D. said...

Just had a drs. appointment last week, and before going, I was making a card using glitter. As careful as I was not to get it on me, it was. All over me. The doctor must have thought I had stripper dust on me! LOL! Thanks for the chance!

Shannon J said...

I think there are too many to count! But i think the one that tops it off was when I was when I had my 3 year old niece stay overnight with me. The next morning I took her to story time at the library...without realizing she wasn't wearing any pants! Just underwear. I still don't know how it took me so long to notice!!!

Heidi Brawley said...

OMG that is hysterical!! Love the cards shown today!!!Soo....for an embarrassing moment....I was at work and I just walked out of the bathroom and started walking down the hall and I hear this guy say " Oh I like Blue Underwear!" I stopped and turned around then felt behind me....Ya I was wearing a short country skirt and I got the end of it caught up top of my underwear when I pulled them up! OMG!!!!!!! Totally Embarrassing!!!

Well, as we age, controlling the emmisions of green house gasses can be a challenge! I'm sure you know what I mean...

Pat said...

My most embarrassing moment came b/c of my son! He was only about 6 or so. A friend of mine that was in the midst of a divorce came over and she brought her new boyfriend so that we could meet him. My son quickly went upstairs, grabbed his Bible, and read to her the following:
'Thou shall not commit adultery."

I wanted to die!

snappy scrappy said...

Love all the cards. My embarrassing moment was when my then 3 year old son kept loudly pointing out that the check out girl had a big belly (she wasn't pregnant). He kept saying it...louder and louder as I kept trying to distract him...brutal. I couldn't say anything to him about it until we left the store...I didn't want to embarrass the lady any more.

Great new challenge!!! Lets see...which moment can I share... oldest dd was about 5 and we went to dinner at a friend's house..we brought salad and my daughter promptly told the hostess that we brought salad because my Mom thinks your salad and dressing last time were really bad... I don't think I said "bad"...but may have made a comment...need to watch what you say in front of your kids... oops!

Sandy said...

I have a horrid time placing faces, which often leads to embarrassment. One of the worst times -- I met my son's preschool teacher for the new school year at open house on a Thursday. That Sunday, she visited my church, and I went up to her and said "You look familiar. Do I know you from somewhere?"

kim.scrapper said...

I have had many but one that stands out for me was I was attending my cousins wedding so fo course I was dressed up and wearing a nice dress. I thought one of the guys in the band was super cute and was hanging outside with a group of friends when they were on intermission trying my best to make eye contact when to my horror, I looked down and my slip was around my ankles. Quick thinking, I stepped out of it, picked it up and walked quickly away....lol The cards are all super cute today, tfs

Meghan said...

Lots of embarrassing moments to choose from in my life but the one I can remember right now is walking into a men's washroom and there was a guy in there! Eeek!

Cheryl Bux said...

Nice to know I'm in good company here! LOL Probably my ALL TIME worst embarrasing moment happened in 1971 during my Grade 1 Christmas pagent - I was the barfing angel! Thankfully, there was no Youtube yet! LOL

Mary-Anne V said...

Oh way to many embarassing moments I would like to forget...one that happened recently was walking into a meeting and asking the pastor if the Religious Ed director was there and she was sitting right next to him... lesson learned:open your eyes!

Kaylee Snyder said...

Kids are so funny sometimes. They never seem to know how to filter their words. I was super embarrassed last month. While I was teaching my honors science class, a box arrived for me. My students all begged me to open it, so I did. It was a box full of cow eyes set up for dissections. I screamed and through the box-eyes went everywhere. The kids still tease me about it.

Edwina said...

I am the only girl of 4 children. There were lots of times that were embarrassing moments for me. My most embarrassing moment was when i was a teenager. We were at Burger King. my middle brother took a package of ketchup bent it then hit it with his fist. It went all over me. in my hair, on my white sweater and dress. then i had to go to go inside the grocery like that. I am still upset about that one after 35 years. Edwina Brown

I love that cow set. Having lived on a farm my whole life, this set reminds me of when it was icy out, my brothers and I would grab the cows tail and slide on the ice while the cows run; I would always fall on my butt!

Suze said...

I have lots of embarrassing moments but one that comes to mind is putting my top on inside out....and only discovering it at the end of the day. Had to wonder how many people had noticed and been too polite to point it out!

Leeann Krebs said...

I have quite a few but the one that pops up in my mind is the time when my darling daughter was about 3 years old and was paying more attention to my mother at a check out line as I was paying for my things. As I was heading for the door, I found her chasing me and yelling "Mom, you have to pay for that!" The security guard looked like he wanted to search me before I had to prove to him that I did in fact pay, thankfully he didn't look further than at the receipt. Needless to say my daughter and I had a long talk about stealing and how I would never do that because I know how it can hurt people!

Leeann Krebs said...

oh no @ the cow eyes, ew! haha

(P.S. I have your linky on my blog)

This is so funny-- When I was in High school I worked for a dept. store My sister came in with my niece who was approx 1 1/2. Sis and I were talking and did not realize that my niece decided to take her new potty training skills to the potty chairs on display and then she said I am a "BIG GIRL"
I ended up buying the potty chair for my niece.

EEK! I love this stamp set. I have a COW stamp fetish. :D As for my embarrassing moment, it has to be the time in high school that I decided to run for secretary of my senior class. I was very shy and no one really thought I could do it. We had to make a speech in front of the whole student body which was about 4,000 students. UGH! Let's just say that all I could remember was my knees knocking and my words slurring. I don't think I had an intelligible word in that whole speech! My poor sister was mortifies. :D I did learn from it though. We definitely won't DIE from embarrassment, we just FEEL like we will. :P Thanks for a chance to win.

One of my most embarrassing moments: Quite a few years ago - while wearing a big circular skirt to work - I had to cross the main street in town to go to a different office. As I got right in the middle of the street, the wind caught my skirt and blew it up and over my head! People actually started honking at me! LOL!

I was once absentmindedly walk into male washroom while waiting for my flight. Once I came out from the cubicle, there are few people (actually men) around but I did not realize and go on for hand washing! Then, I started to feel something is not right as these people (men) started to stare at me. When I got out, I only realize it is a MALE washroom! I walk back to my mum (this happens while I am in high school) and absentmindedly told her that I just walk into a male washroom just now! Thinking back, I feel so embarrassed now!
