Humiliation Deserves a Prize

Everytime I go to the beach, I'm reminded of a time that I was there laying out with two friends. We were in high school and just like any teenagers, we felt the need to soak up as much sun as possible. Of course, we wanted the tan but more than that, we desperately wanted to meet some guys.

(I mean, everybody's seen the beginning of Grease, right? Aren't you supposed to find love at the beach???)

We had a good setup, all lined up in a row, radio on... you know the drill. Anyway, after a while we all looked up to see if it was starting to rain. All three of us felt the raindrops on our tummies at the same time. Well, no rain and no raindrops - just a bird that felt the need to relieve himself right as he flew over us. (Kerrie and Kremsa, do ya'll think about that everytime you go to the beach?)

Nothing like a little bird poop on your belly to make you feel like love is just around the corner.

I really don't consider that my most embarrassing moment at the beach though. I think this next little gem will take that prize. Kerrie and I went to the beach with her parents. I think we were probably in the 9th grade. We had been floating on our floats out in ocean (yes, there used to be a time that I actually got in the ocean) and before we knew it, we had gotten out too far.

It was a little tough getting back - the waves kept pulling me under. But I perservered, minus my float, and made my way back to the beach where Kerrie's parents were. As I walked up Kerrie's Dad said, "Hey Jill. Your boob is hanging out." Lovely.

So in honor of my humiliation, I'm having my first ever GIVEAWAY!!! I saw this bag at the beach and just knew that some of you out there in bloggy world would love it as much as I do.

I so thrilled to get mentioned on your blog so many times lately. Funny thing is I was telling the girls the story about your boob when we are at the beach in May-ha ha ha. Oh, and I got pooped on by another bird at Disney World. This time in was in my hair-yuck-while waiting in line to meet Mary Poppins. Ok, here is a funny beach story-remember the boys that threw the pickles on our patio at the beach. This was the time we took NKTOB pics and hung them in our room while we were at the beach. Does that qualify me for the giveaway? I think that purse is really super duper cute!

I'm going right now to put it on my blog. Cute purse!!!!

It took me three minutes to stop laughing at your post, and then I read Kerrie's comment. I interupted Chad history channel show, and I can't even stop laughing now. He is so annoyed. I want that awesome purse, but more than that, I want to hear more about this incident! I am a bag person too. Chad makes fun of me because I have so many, but there is never enough when cuteness is on the line!!!! Let's hear it for excess! Woo Hoo!

Hi there! Came here from Wendy's blog :)

That bag is adorable!! And so big, big enough to carry the sippy cups, snacks and pacifiers that must come with me where ever I go!

I blogged a few months ago about an embarassing beach moment involving my three year old...

Jill, you are a riot! Too bad I don't have one single embarrassing beach moment. Not one! Every time I'm there I look fabulous, and I move in slow motion like Bo Derek in '10'. Yep, that's me. Toned, tanned and graceful.

That was way too humiliating!!! Sorry! I would have died and never gone to my friend's house again! Didn't know you were Mama Hen's sister! How funny is that!!! Great give away!

Lianne said...

I loooove the bag! So cute!

I don't really have an embarrassing beach story, other than I had to wear a bathing suit whilst I was there a couple of weeks ago. Does that count? : P

Rebekah said...

Oh, I would love to win that cute, cute purse, Jill! I need something cute like that! It looks like it would match a lot of different things. What a fun idea!

Miss Jennifer said...

Oh the famous boob popping out. Happened to my mom once, does that count as embarassing for me, 'cause it should.

Love me some beachy looking bag!

Kremsa said...

I seem to have flushed the birds peeing on us at the beach. I tend to do that with things I would prefer not to remember. I cannot believe I did not know the ultra-embarrassing Mr. B story. I thought Kerrie fainting in the shower in high school, and him having to help her was embarrassing, but at least he was her dad. I feel for you even now. Well, you know I am not a purse person, but I just had to comment. We leave for the beach Saturday. I will let you know of any embarrassing moments. Love ya!!

I'm a friend of Wendy's and I love your bag also. I have never been pooped on at the beach, but I've been pooped on everywhere else! The birds have gotten me several times, including at Universal Studios where you can't just change clothes. And my children have pooped on my numerous times...I think that should count. Thanks for including us in your giveaway!

Ok I love the bag. And let me just share as you know I took my niece with me to Florida this time and we went to the beach. She is so not needing a 2 piece suit but she had one on anyway. I was not happy cause you know I am picky about how things look when I am a heavy person and she is bigger than me everywhere. We play out in the water for hours finally start to leave and as we do a wave hits her knocked her down and he top came undone. oh the horror. I grabed her a towel and bout that time a lil boy walked up and handed her the top and the pads that she has to use cause one boob is smaller than the other. We both turned more red then we were already and grabed what we could told Rob, Dad, and Ryon to grab the rest and I took her out of there. Now I think I will check her clothes for my approval from now on before we go anywhere.

i reckon that MammaHen would just love that bag.
i personally dont have much need for one.

once when i was at the beach my chest got exposed too.

Darren said...

Well...I have never had a boob pop out before. But I did have my shorts pulled down in the 7th grade while standing up on the church bus at a beach youth camp.

Laura Fox said...

That is an awesome bag!!! I LOVE the colors and would love to have it.
