Less-Than-Graceful Moments

Sometimes Gracefully

Happy Monday! We had a busy weekend over here in Minneapolis…filled with friends, sunshine, and a whole lot of apple donuts. Those things are divine, I tell ya.

If you need a little MondayΒ pick-me-up, here are a few of my “less-than-graceful” moments from this past week and weekend! And if any of you have an embarrassing moment {orΒ moments,Β in my case…}, feel free to share! A little awkwardness can go a long way, I always say…. πŸ˜‰

  1. Being stuck in a one person bathroom five minutes longer than I needed to be due to the door being a “pull” rather than a “push”….thanks for the sign, people.
  2. Walking across a blow-up air mattress is harder than it looks. Tripping and falling while trying to walk across a blow-up air mattress is harder than it looks as well. Especially for your knees. So much for “mattress padding.”
  3. Β You know you’re a great host when you fall asleep while watching a movie at 8pm with your guests and then drool on the couch. Real classy, Grace. That’ll encourage them to visit again…
  4. Eating three apple donuts in one hour. Although, that may be moreΒ impressiveΒ than embarrassing…
  5. I’ll do anything for a group photo. Even startle a teenage girl committing a little “PDA” with her boyfriend in the middle of the apple orchard. Totally worth it.

Our weekend was jammed packed entertaining friends from out of town, and every moment was marvelous. There’s just so much to share and tell when you’ve been apart for so long…I was gushing with stories. Friendship is awesome.

I hope your weekends were relaxing! I’ve got some apple orchard pictures to share later this week, so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

    PS – Did I ever tell you my maiden name is Beckman? People ALWAYS mistook it for Beekman!

      Get out of town! That’s so funny! I’m sometimes mistaken for Beckman! What’s the deal, people?! πŸ˜‰
