Surprises and Mess Making...

Did you know, that when you turn your Keurig on, wait for it to heat up, put the little K-Cup in, and push the brew strength button to start, you should have already had a mug under it ready to catch the liquid gold?
Apparently I was oblivious to this fact yesterday morning before school.... 
Which instead of a joyful cup all ready to go, to aid in keeping up with five three year olds all morning, I ended up with a puddle around the machine, and a dripping mess all over the floor.
Did you know it was going to be school picture day that very same day. I didn't.
So, when I arrived at the school I work at yesterday morning, I grabbed my cup of liquid happiness (thankfully there was time to clean up said mess, and try again...), my bag, and headed to my class. And lo and behold, I find a sign on the door announcing class picture day.
Which means a group picture with the little kiddies.
On the plus side to this surprise, I had actually taken some thought and time into my outfit for the day. Usually it's just grab whatever is clean and wrinkle free.

The shirt if from Loft, purchased two years ago at the end of season...
The skirt is a Goodwill find from last week...
and I was pretty excited at finding it. I think white skirts are a summer wardrobe staple, and my old one, well, I recently discovered it has a big ole' hole near the zipper.

These shoes are another Goodwill find, but from three, maybe even four years ago. But this is only the third time they have been worn. I have no clue why. Because I love the vintage appeal they have. Maybe it's the color that is hard to match. Any hoo...
Don't ya just love messes and surprises? Even when they happen before 8 am? :P
When I can laugh about them, and smile and move on, I do. :)
Any surprises or mess making of late?
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. My mess recently happened at 6:15 in the morning. I was making my husband's lunch for work and grabbed the jug of orange juice to pour some into a smaller container. I always shake it first and when I did this the lid flew off and showered me with orange juice. Too early for such a mess!I love your outfit especially the shoes. Hope your class picture went well.

    1. Oh my goodness! That is too early for a mess! :D And the class pic did go well. :)

  2. So, so, *so* cute!!

    You had me laughing over the Keurig mess ... I haven't done that yet but I hope I remember you if ever it happens! Also, your chickies are so cute and I love that they are in their "big girl" coop now. Very grownup.

    I was super surprised by finding three huge (somewhat vintage) frames the other day and one darling basket ... all for free! Our city has a yearly cleanup so folks toss out things they don't want anymore for pickup. We had fun cruising town "junking" and I'll be pinteresting some cute projects to do with them. Oh, and we made a bench!! A lovely, fun, diy bench. It's so great. I rave about it all the time ... and it really isn't that amazing (although I think it is :) .

    Anyways, I'm loving your outfit and the recent posts!

    Love and blessings!

    1. Oh! That does sound like a fun event! And I am sure your bench is amazing. :D

  3. I love this outfit. It is something that I would totally wear and my favourite colours as well

  4. Thank-you Rebecca! I think it's one of favorite color combos as well. :D


Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE to hear from you all out there. Just please remember to keep everything kind and Christ-like. In the words of that wise papa rabbit, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". :)
