. . . for Lauren and Lauren: A Car is a Car

February 12, 2013

A Car is a Car

tee: target   dress & necklace: kohls   leggings: jcpenney  boots: dsw 

One thing that I know absolutely nothing about is cars. 

Ask me to identify a car and I can tell you if it is a truck, an SUV or a normal sized car.  Along with the color. And that is about as far as I go. 

The other day I stood outside a car that was not mine, wondering why my remote was not unlocking the car.  Grey car.  Normal size.  Thought it was mine. 

Turns out, not my car. 

But the worst case of car misidentification was when Chris dropped me off at Kohls one time and was waiting in the car.  I think it was raining a little, which helps my failure to pay attention to detail a little more excusable.  

But probably not a lot. 

I ran outside, opened the door of "my car," sat in the front seat and noticed a Burger King bag in the center.  While about to say "You really went to Burger King while I was in the store?" I looked up first and noticed a man that was not my husband.  

Awkward.  

"Oooooh.  You are not my husband.  Oops." 

Even more awkward was backing out of the front seat to see his wife waiting outside the car.  

Maybe I should at least pay attention to the details of my own cars.

hahaha! too funny...i've done the same thing before too...i can NEVER remember where i park either. i can often be found walking in circles around the wal mart parking lot, pointing my clicker at random vehicles and saying curse words when the lights dont come on.

LOVE that mustard tee! cutest preggo girl ever!

Hilarious!!

Brianna Tucker said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha that is to funny. At our first apartment there was an identical car to mine. It was royal blue and a hyaundai so there are many of those. I sat outside of it clicking the clicker before I realized it wasn't mine.

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha that is hilarious!! Yes you should probably learn at least your car a bit more haha! Loving the bump!! It's growing more and more each day!!!

Bethany Reine' said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh my gosh!too funny!! it's the adult equivalent of a child hugging the leg of a complete stranger when they think it's their mommy. so so funny!!

Kaara A said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

At least you didn't come behind said man (not in a car) and squeeze his shoulders saying 'hey babe' to realize its not him and he doesn't think it's funny! Lol so did this at the soccer fields!

Jodi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

OMG that is TOO funny! I would have died. What are the chances of doing that! Haha! I guess you learned your lesson and will probably pay more attention now.

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hilarious! This has happened to me multiple times. I have both 1) gotten into a car that someone else was in. They said, "Hey!" And I said, "Um..." then ran away. 2) I got into a car that wasn't mine, and the people were sitting RIGHT IN FRONT OF IT eating ice cream and staring at me like I was crazy. Which I am. Crazy. You are not alone!

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

lol.

Kerrie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha wow. I'm pretty bad at this too, definitely stood outside a car trying to pop the trunk over and over this week, only to realize mine did pop, just on another isle. But I've never gotten into a strangers car. That's awesome ;)

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Bahaha my dad did this one time and the passengers in the car he sat in thought they were being carjacked. So funny! I've definitely tried my remote dozens of times before realizing THAT silver car wasn't mine.

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

One time I unlocked a car and started it. I looked down and my CD case was gone. I thought someone had broken into my car. Until I noticed the smell. I looked around and it was not my blue 87 Toyota Tercel, but a different blue 87 Toyota tercel. I got out and ran to my own car. Yikes!

Suzanne Bruce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

These pics are going to be so invaluable!!! Can you imagine showing your child every day they were in the womb? I am so happy for you!!!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Great color combo! I'm horrible with my car too but in the sense that I never, never remember where I parked. I'm aimlessly walking the isles searching for my white car....

Vanessa Uttaro said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh no, haha... but I've totally done that. ;)

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha this story is clearly amazing!!!


and looove the new fashion pics....oh hey baby!

Deirdre said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have totally done that too...and then there's the humiliating looking around hoping no one saw you...eek!

Cheers to you and the bumple.

Lauren said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Loving the pops of colour! xo

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Bahahahahahaha........that is HYSTERICAL! My hubby and I did that once in a parking lot and same thing we got in and noticed a food bag that wasn't ours but thankfully the owner wasn;t around!!(He should really lock his car doors!) I really like the color combo in that outfit, giving me some ideas!

Head to Toe Chic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha that cracks me up!! love the color mixing in your outfit :)

xo,

Whitney said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahahaha this made me laugh so hard! I ALWAYS forget where I parked, which is super annoying. One time in college I parked somewhere different than I normally do and after class I was walking around in the complete wrong parking lot looking for my car. I actually thought someone stole it because it was no where to be found. After awhile I just stood there because I didn't know what else to do and then finally I remembered that I had parked somewhere else that day!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The tee over the dress is one of my favorite looks. So versatile!
I can usually identify my car...if I can find it. Finding it is where my problem lies...

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha! Love this story!! And you are looking adorable! :)

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look great! And I have the same car problem!

So funny...and embarrassing! I've "lost" my car several times, forgetting where I parked, wandering aimlessly. It happens! How are you wearing short sleeves in the snow!?

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That is the funniest story! I've talked to strangers thinking they were my husband, friend or sister but never jumped into a car thinking it was my own! The poor man must have been shocked!

Love your outfit! How can you wear short sleeves when it's cold out? Even inside I would be freezing! The only time in the winter I could get away with short sleeves is when I was pregnant- maybe you are experiencing the internal heater? Or do you always run warm?

readeatcreate.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOL...I can't even imagine! I bet your husband never lets you live that one down. Hahahaha :)

SO funny! I've done something similar! I had to go on business trips to different cities in one week and had different rental cars each time. Well the second trip, I kept trying car after car after car in a parking lot because I couldn't remember for the LIFE of me which rental car I had that day! So embarrassing but very funny now :) By the way, your baby bump is ADORABLE!!

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh my goodness - that is TOO funny! Can't believe you got in the wrong car...I would have totally done something similar :) I LOVE...LOVE this outfit Katie! The colors look great together and it's just SO cute!

Brooke Houston said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That is sooo freakin hilarious! What a great story. I've done the same thing. I've tried to unlock two different cars thinking my key was broken or something. They were my same car, but totally different colors... talk about oblivious!

Helene said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hahaha, omg your story is so funny. I can't believe you actually got into the car. The best part was you were about to yell at Chris for getting burger king, hahaha.

You are looking GORGEOUS!

This is hilarious! I once watched my sister get in the car that was in front of me while i was watching. And there only two cars in the driveway. And they didn't even look a like (well, besides they both had 4 doors).

Sandra said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hee hee! That is TOO funny! It's never happened to me but I can just imagine getting into the wrong car!
