Snapshot Thursdays 3 pictures from my week to give you a peek into my daily lifeWelcome to Snapshot Thursdays. Please join me on  Instagram  to see more pictures I share all week long.

By sharing today’s photos  I am hoping to find at least a few fellow klutzy soul mates out there who can share in my pain and benefit from my findings. The rest of you can all just laugh, well actually klutzy people can too, it is okay, I have totally been there and done that (America’s Funniest Home Videos is full of people just like me).

water glassThis is the type of glass I drink out of at home. Not only does it hold a lot of liquid but it is also very heavy and thus hard to tip over. That second fact, is the main reason I use it all the time. I might be 40 but I still have not out grown spilling my milk, or water, or in the case of last weekend when my husband and I enjoyed a weekend getaway, cranberry juice.

Cranberry juice on the hotel wall, cranberry juice on the hotel couch, cranberry juice on the hotel floor. And this spillage happened at 7 am in the morning while my cleaning expert hubby was still sleeping in the bedroom of our hotel suite.

I blame it on the flimsy plastic hotel cup. I swear I barely touched the thing and wham it was everywhere.

I blotted, I rinsed, I blotted some more. I apparently blotted so hard it woke my husband up who was sleeping in the other room.

spot shotHe immediately sent me to the grocery store across the street for carpet stain remover. I picked up Spot Shot, and a Starbucks caramel macchiato with a sippy cup style lid (those are great for us 40 yr old klutzy people) ran back to the hotel room and watched my hubby work magic on the stain. The stain was gone is seconds.

Man that stuff really works! (warning though it does have a strong chemically odor to it).

If you love knowing your not the only quirky couple out there then you will enjoy reading The Antelope In The Living Room just as much as I am. I picked it up last week when I saw it free on kindle through instagram (I follow Melanie Shankle and she mentioned it there). I am only a few pages in but already have laughed so hard that my husband shushed me, because he was trying to enjoy his own book next to me on the couch.

So make me feel better. What has your klutzy side split?

    I spill all the time!! Love adult sippy cups! Especially tervis tumblers with lids! My
    Moms jokes my dad and I need bibs because we can’t go out to eat without dropping food on ourselves either! True story we both drop food on the exact same spot on our shirts!

  2. haha Your story had me laughing only because I could relate. I dislike flimsy cups. I’ve spilled so many that I, too, drink with a lid.

  3. Love it – I spill and especially food – I even wear a “bib” out at restaurants!

  4. My husband uses the same heavy glass mug. I actually have one of those reusable plastic wine glass sippy cups. You might want to buy one for your next hotel stay.

    • I am thinking of getting a canning jar style sippy cup just for that reason. My husband and I have also decided the can of spot shot is coming with us next time we head to a hotel. LOL

  5. Your glasses look very similar to mine! I don’t like plastic cups, but it is just because I am a creature of habit. I have my favorite glasses at my house, and I use those if at all possible.

    Have you checked out the photography course from Craftsy? I was intrigued.
