    There have been a number of times when I’ve accidentally thought out loud at inopportune moments but decided, afterward, that I’m glad I said what I was thinking. :)

    love yellow and ChocoLove, a Colorado company! most of my faux pas are incredibly embarassing, and not normally something I’m happy about afterwards, but I’ll work on improving that!

    Faux pas, you say? Attempting to climb the Lake District’s highest mountain wearing some pretty floral shorts and my pink gym trainers. Made it though! x

    Faux pas… I’m notorious for showing up to a party on-time when everyone else knows to show up late (at least all my friends). Faux pas-ish. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m more of a commit a faux pas then spend the next three nights mulling over my mistake and wondering if anyone is going to invite me over again….listing it in an awesome yellow journal would probably be the better habit. Love this box!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Allison said:

    Such a happy round up! Hope I win :)

    I think your blog is full of sunshine! So a box full is just perfect. Happy five years!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Katie said:

    This one is my favorite! I want it! My girls would freak over the toy camera. Well, actually, they would fight about it and after a few days Greta would win and then she’d hoard it in her doll stroller or carry it in her purse.

    This has been a fun week of giveaways. You kept everything very true to you. I love it!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Sarah said:

    This is the prettiest one yet! Love it!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Netti Confetti said:

    I once fell into the christmas tree in front of the entire family of my then-boyfriend. Sure it was more me being … well … me, but I am making it count. I was insanely embarrassed at the time, I would hide in the toilet for an hour. But in the end it turned out to be the most entertaining bit of the day if not the whole of christmas. It’s good being able to laugh about yourself. clap clap clap

  • On February 21, 2013 , Riley said:

    I am IN LOVE with this “X in a box.”

  • On February 21, 2013 , alison said:

    I would love a little box of sunshine, especially since we’re expecting yet ANOTHER big snowfall here in WI over the next few days.

  • On February 21, 2013 , Jessica Thiessen said:

    My faux pas wins them all (so I should also win this awesome box). Friends of ours were telling our close group of friends how her mom was just diagnosed with pancratic cancer and had weeks to live. It was super emotional and we were praying together and… I farted. I had no control. I couldn’t even hide it or try to pass it off as my husband’s. But it made my friend laugh even just for a minute or two in one of the worst moments of her life. Faux pas for the win.

  • On February 21, 2013 , Allison said:

    My friends and I were all hungover this morning (drinking on a work night….major faux pas), but, celebrating a goodbye party on a Wednesday is fun and unexpected.

    Super fun give-away, love it.

    In high school, there was a boy that liked me and kept calling me. I did not feel the same way. One day the phone rang and I answered it. “Is Jen there?” Oh no! It was him! Say you’re not here. “No, I’m not” I replied. He never called back.

  • On February 21, 2013 , Catherine Cragun said:

    One time I told a boy that I think about doughnuts daily. Is that a faux pas? He seemed to think so!

    Love your blog!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Sherri S said:

    My faux pas usually are speech related when I open my mouth! I can’t remember the word I used once with a boss, but it had a TOTALLY different meaning than the word I meant to use. He is also an English professor and uses my ‘faux pas’ word use as an example in his classes to this day. Whoa is me! I LOVE all your boxes and would be thrilled to win any one of them.

  • On February 21, 2013 , Kathy said:

    My faux pas I made and liked: I wore fairly casual sandals to interview for my first real job while I was in college—I didn’t own more professional shoes and didn’t prioritize shoe buying for the interview—and to this day I’m grateful I got the job anyway and wish I still cared little enough about job interviews to not buy fancy new clothes for them!

    Who doesn’t need some sunshine? I know I do! I think one of the faux pas I made & liked may have been when I was at church & totally got caught up in the service & kinda got the feeling that the lady in front of me needed a hug. So after the service I went up and asked if I could hug her & then did so. Little did I know that she had been feeling lonely & had just prayed to God to send her someone and that she just missed people & really needed a hug. So it worked out for the best, when I was worried that she would think I was some strange chick just hugging folks all willy nilly during cold & flu season, lol.

    Ohhh, what an adorable idea! I LOVE your website, and I adore the sunshine in a box! I am in dire need of a little sunshine in a box right now!

    I am the queen of faux pas! Things just seem to jump out of my mouth before my brain even realizes that they are on their way out (let alone APPROVES of them)!! It’s nearly an every day occurrence! I can’t pick just one, and I don’t know if I ever really “like” it – but at the end of the day, I think it just makes me honest, genuine and relatable! At least, I hope that’s the case!

    Thank you for doing a give-away! And such a beautiful one at that! <3

    I am late to my own birthday party almost every year. Total faux pas. BUT it’s almost always because whoever volunteered to drive me (because, hello, it’s my birthday- I’m getting tipsy!) has prepared a little pre-gaming for me. So I end up sipping champagne with one or two friends a little longer than intended and when I get to the “real” party all my friends are SUPER excited to see me. YAY!

  • On February 21, 2013 , Esmee said:

    I love this so much! Oh My Goodness! I have had so many embarrassing situations in my life and now i can even remember one!

SO EMBARRASSING! Anyways, pick me, pick me!

  • On February 21, 2013 , MaliaLa said:

    This week’s faux pas had to do with my two pet chickens, 7-month old laying hens. One of them, Watts, is quite crow-y and loud when she wants to be, and I was ignoring her late in the afternoon because I thought she was just testing her voice, or maybe trying to scare other birds away from their feed. Dusk came & went, and I know they will go into their coop on their own, so I go close the coop door before I go to bed. The winds were blowing like crazy, so the sound of the metal ladder lightly banging on the side of the house I chalked up to (1) Early on, Watts pecking at the ladder, because she likes to knock on things to see if I am home, and (2) In the late evening, the winds whooshing from over the mountain. When I went to close the coop door before midnight I realized there was only *one* chicken, Lilu, in the coop, and Watts was nowhere to be seen. I paused, then went to turn on the outside sideyard light, thinking, well, maybe she got over the wall into the backyard. Light on, I glanced down the dark walkway, saw the glint of the metal ladder on the side of the house…and Watts, my lost chicken, standing up on top of it. In case you don’t know, chickens cannot see in the dark, which is why they go to roost at dusk. She got up there somehow (maybe helped by a strong gust of wind), and as dusk fell must not have been able to figure out how to get down. She was probably stuck on the ladder, making that light banging sound as she paced in the dark, for nearly 6 hours. I felt HORRIBLE, and she was all cozy and grateful, instead of squawk-y and peck-y, when I went to get her down. Thank goodness my chickens are so forgiving :-)

    Either I’m naturally clumsy or I am just clueless faux pas feels like an everyday routine for me. I can’t even remember each one. But the biggest I have ever done is wearing socks with sandals, fit flops actually. Whaaat? It’s cold outside and I don’t bother tying up anything! Anyway thank you for the giveaway! It’s amazing!

    When I was about 6 or 7 (totally old enough to know better) I went out to dinner with my parents. After I was done eating my meal, I literally licked my plate clean. Our waitress must have seen me, because, much to the horror of my parents, the chef came out and thanked me for my appreciation and comped me a dessert.

    Hi Melanie, My faux pas happened at a work party. My boss’s elegant wife walked in and I was going to greet her by kissing her on the cheek like the French do. I accidentally planted one solidly on her cheek as if she were my grandma. How embarrassing!

    Faux pas are a regular thing in my house – but seem to happen even more often when you are an expat. It usually involves wearing the wrong outfit to an occasion or pointing something out that most people would keep quiet. Just part of daily life at this stage. Loving the sunny box!

  • On February 22, 2013 , Grace Ann said:

    When my husband and I were dating, we (I) used to call my cat a “pig in a cat suit” because he was a bit round. Well, I think it was the second time my husband met my parents we had them over to his house for dinner and he called me a “pig in a girlfriend suit” in front of them. Not my own faux pas but pretty funny. Luckily I could take the joke. We are happily married now and joke that way with one another all the time. It makes for lots of fun! I love your blog! And the yellow box of sunshine would be perfect to brighten up the dark days here in Stockholm!

    My favorite faux pas:
    When studying abroad I assumed that this amazing man I met in the corridor at Uni would be one of the painters and decorators, as his coat was covered in paint. – It tuned out he was one of my tutors!!

    When not teaching, he painted portraits, hence the paint, and after the whole course was finished he asked me to sit for him. Then I asked him to teach me how to paint. That was 8 years ago. Three years ago we had a daughter and 8 months ago we had a son. :)
