Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Just Call Me AL

My man LOVES this stuff! Since Hannah was little she has referred to A1 Sauce as Al. We always keep a big, Sams Club super sized, bottle in our refrigerator...until tonight that is!

As of right now, Al sauce is dead to me! This afternoon I had a Youth Search Committee meeting and then evening worship. Well...since my family was at a Super Bowl party, I went to my meeting and like the good preacher's kid that I am...I, I really hate to admit this to the world, I...skipped church in order to go to HEB for groceries for the week. I know, I'm sorry!

Anyway, on my way back into town I stopped and picked up my girls from the party and we headed home to put the groceries away. Mr. Incredible was watching the game with friends and we were headed home to enjoy girlie things like watching a chick flick or something fun like that.

Well...that didn't happen. Hannah was helping me put things in the refrigerator when IT happened.

I reached for something on the top shelf and accidentally knocked the

Super-sized Al Sauce over. In slow motion...it seemed...I screamed....'"NO!"

The next thing I hear is my youngest child saying, "It's in my eye! It's in my eye!" We were covered from the top of our head to our feet in Al sauce!

I thought that was the worst part...oh no!... that would be too easy!

I hear Rachel start laughing ...more like rolling on the floor in complete hysterical laughter....saying, "You should see yourselves!"

Then she said, "Look at the ceiling!" Not only were Hannah and I covered in sauce, my kitchen island, my refrigerator (inside and out...'cause...hello the door was open), the cabinets, pantry door, and the ceiling were nicely coated too.

How can one bottle hold so much stuff? We cleaned everything up as much as possible and then I had to call Mr. Incredible to come home to help with the ceiling.

That was a fun phone call to make. All I heard on the other end of the phone was hysterical laughter...and then he sweetly asked if his precious...bottle of A1 sauce was okay?

Excuse me???? No, it is not okay, but I quickly explained, "I feel confident that you can ring out my hair and refill half the bottle. Come home...please!"

Good news! The kitchen and the ceiling are fine and I have never been more attractive to my husband ever! Oiy...just call me "Al!"

Oh my! I laughed so much at this... it amazes me when you spill something like that how much there seems to be in the bottle!

I am glad it came off the ceiling...for a moment I was worried you were going to say it would not come clean :)

Congratulations on the Top Blog! I was so excited to see your blog :)

Oh, this is too funny! Sorry, Kristi, hate to laugh at your expense, but it is just funny. Reminds me of the time my daughter broke a bottle of hot peppers in our pantry. They didn't hit the ceiling, but everything else (including her) was nicely coated. What fun it was trying to get a scared 2-year old not to rub her eyes as she was crying (her little finger had all the juice from those hot pepeers on them!).

Have a great week! :)

Okay, when I read your post - I felt for you knowing how many times I've done something so similiar. Then, I got perturbed at your hubby and mine for laughing at you because that is what would also happen here.

Then I saw his jersey and realized he was a Cardinals fan. He is now forgiven. My hubby on the other hand, is not. (He is a steeler's fan.) Our home is divided on the subject of football right now. ;)

Thanks for the laughs! I'm truly laughing out loud! I hear some steak sauce is good for the hair or was that mayo? :)

Oh my friend! This sounds like the stuff that goes on at our house LOL. Too funny. I have to tell you though. When I saw the header to your post I started singing the song, "if i can call you Eddie, Eddie if you call me you can call me AL!" Do you remember that song or am I being a complete doofis? LOL.
Love you my friend.
Thanks for the song stuck in my head. Ha! Ha!
