It was a typical Monday morning. You know the kind I mean--the kind of morning when it feels like everything that could go wrong does. But little did I know that my beloved breakfast would betray me.




Like many mornings, I started my day by checking my email. Once my inbox was empty, I jumped into the bathroom to get ready for the day. After I finished making myself look somewhat presentable, I headed into the kitchen to make myself something moderately healthy for breakfast (since I still hadn't forgiven myself for eating a mountain-high plate of chocolate chip pancakes over the weekend).



Smoothie bowls are a great option for breakfast! Not to mention there are about a thousand different kinds you can make if you look on Pinterest long enough. Lately, I've been on a strawberry/blueberry/almond/granola kick. But that's beside the point.

Once I made my way into my kitchen, I turned on my "productive morning" playlist on my phone and started washing and chopping up my strawberries. Adam popped into the kitchen to say hi in-between his work as I was finishing preparing my smoothie bowl.

The time that I spend while I make breakfast is a short span of time that I use to think about stuff that isn't all too important. Interestingly enough, on this particular morning, while I was arranging my smoothie bowl, I was starting to wonder if Snapchat decided to take away that amazing flower crown filter they put up for Coachella this year. Mid-thought, while I was pondering if I hadn't truly taken advantage enough of the flower crown filter, I felt my ankle twist and turn underneath me in slow motion.

Before I could process what was happening (or for that matter why I am so clumsy I literally trip over my own feet), I was already lying on the ground on my back. It wasn't too painful. But, it didn't take me long to realize that I had a huge smear of smoothie bowl all down the front of my top. What an epic fail!


How I use Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover to Save a Shirt



Step 1: I tell myself "Calm down! The world isn't ending--it's just a stain! #firstworldproblems"

Step 2: Use a clean paper towel to wipe away any excess food from the stain.

Step 3: Grab my Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover!


Step 4: Simply follow the directions on the back of the bottle and Shout® Trigger Triple-Acting Stain Remover uses its formula to cling to, penetrate, and lift away tough stains! It works to break and remove the tough stains that my smoothie bowl tossed at me.


Step 5: Send a Snapchat to my squad with as many crying face emojis as I can, and tell them all about the epic fail that I just had to fix all by myself!




PHEW! What a mess!


Now that things are back to normal, let's all take a second to admire this emoji face mask that I designed. Oh! And I've made the emoji mask a free printable for you to grab right now! YAASSS!

  1. Nooo! I hate when that happens! Smoothies and smoothie bowls are my favorite way to start the day. Acai is really popular here in HAwaii and it stains ANYTHING it touches, so I always have to be really careful :(

    1. Yeah, you're right! Acai does stain pretty bad. I've been fortunate enough to get about almost all of my stains resolved (it's been years since I had to toss a shirt due to a stain!)

  2. YES! I use Shout on everything. I have two messy little boys and we'd be trowing away a lot of clothes without Shout.

  3. So many things I want to say! First, baaaad smoothie bowl. Second: Share that playlist!! Third, hope you are ok! (that should have been first, sorry!) and Fourth I LOVE THE crying emoji. I'm going to print it for work.

    1. Ha, thanks Terri! I'd love to share my playlist--I'll have to figure out how to do that :D And I hope you all get a kick out of the crying emoji mask at work. I bet it will be a hit!

  4. It's nice to meet another person who trips over their own feet. It's a good thing there is Shout for people like us and our ability to make messes.

  5. You have a great way of curating a post. I so wasn't expecting the cleaning liquid to come into the article. That was pretty smart of you. Hope you are alright though now!

  6. Oh no! I struggle with clumsiness too, girl. You aren't alone!

  8. Now all I can think about is making myself a productive morning playlist.....lol! I'm glad you are ok and it sounds like the Shout helped you out a ton with that darn smoothie bowl mess :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sounds like something I'd do! If I managed to keep myself clean my one year old would find someway to get me instead. Never fails lol

    ReplyDelete
  10. It never fails when I cook pasta sauce that it splashes up on my shirts. Don't even have to trip and fall with it! I love Shout spray and wash! That crying emoji mask is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for the reminder about Shout- I've been using another stain remover with diminished success lately so maybe I need to try Shout again!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha. So cute. I do this ALL the time (which is one of the reasons I avoid wearing white).

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh no! LOL. Gosh - it always happens on white. At least the bowl looked great and delicious while it lasted.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have never used SHOUT before but I am curious now. I do have a lot of shirts from my hubby that have been stained. If SHOUT can save them then I will definitely use this product consistently!

    ReplyDelete
  15. First of all, I love this mask printable...so fun! And I could definitely use some Shout in my life because breakfast disasters are a regular occurrence over here lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep, I've had that happen before many times. And it usually happens when I am SOOO hungry and in a hurry.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Awesome post. I didn't see the shout spray coming and the story kept me reading. :-) Plus a smoothie bowl sounds amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm so glad that you were able to get the stain out and that you're okay! I also love that this all occurred while pondering the Coachella snapchat filter, LOL.

  19. Is it possible to live without Shout? I don't think my laundry room has ever been without a bottle. Can you believe that I've never actually had a smoothie bowl? It looks like a good way to start the day though!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We love Shout! My son is five and he's messy (ok, so am I!). We've rescued quite a few clothes from the brink of ruin with Shout :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love using Shout for stain removal. It seems like their stain stick was sent straight from Heaven! Also, I have never had a smoothie bowl before. I will have to try one.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Your smoothie bowl looks great! It's such a shame that it got on your shirt but it's awesome that you were able to avoid any permanent stains. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. My husband is the stain master in our house. I don't know how he does it or what products he uses but there has not been a stain he can't get out. Maybe ever.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can never trust myself to wear white! Seriously, it never fails. Love this post :)

  25. That was an absolutely hilarious and original way of introducing Shout! My children are wondering what I'm laughing about.

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG this was funny! lol.. like many of us we weren't expecting Shout to come in the picture. I thought this was really clever lol... I haven't really used Shout, but I will have to get one because on occasions I drop food on my clothes unintentionally of course and sometimes its hard to remove the stain. This looks like it really works and its worth trying out.

    Thanks xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  27. Look at least this was a real life scenario. I am clumsy too sometimes you gonna make a mess!

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's the worst when you get a stain at the beginning of the day during breakfast! Thank goodness for Shout! Also, now I'm craving a smoothie bowl!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is so me! I complain all the time about the messes my three kids make, but in reality I am just as bad.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Living in Maine we use a lot of blueberries in our smoothies - those stain pretty bad. But, with kids, I am used to not wearing white, I am much more a gray/black person now :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't mean to laugh but that is something that happens to me all the time. Now I just need a crying emoji to go with. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love a great smoothie bowl! Having 2 little kids I can say I have never used a product more then I Shout! Life saving and game changer!

    ReplyDelete
  33. hahah this is hilarious. sorry your shirt was a mess but at least your smoothie bowl is beautiful. my breakfast never looks that nice

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hahaha, sounds like me on a daily basis! I've learned to make friends with things like Shout ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am super clumsy too and when I spilled oil right on the front of my brand new birthday dress that I'd only worn once, I finally went to the store and invested in a good stain remover. Then I was going through my cupboards and found that I had some Shout already-UGH! Haha, well at least now I'm well stocked. I'm loving your super cute crying emoji. lol

    ReplyDelete
  36. Loved this story! sorry to hear about your smoothie bowl! This always happens to me, one time I was grabbing the eggs to make omelets and well I trip and all of the eggs cracked! I wanted to cry so badly!! Specially because cleaning eggs is a mission lol
