Bouncing Back From Laundry Mishaps #BounceBack

bounce We’ve all been there! You’re nicely dressed and out somewhere and something lands right on your shirt. While this seems to happen to my husband more than me it has happens to us all.  Every season we try and take new family photos. Living in Oregon it’s so beautiful here so the scenery makes for the perfect backdrop. Two years ago we went to take a spring family photo so we all got dressed up, hair done, the whole nine. We headed all the way across town to a beautiful park that we knew would have plenty of blooming flowers.

Did I mention it also rains a lot here in Oregon? Just as we were heading down into the park, camera supplies, dog, and kids in tow Brooklin who was two at the time eyeballed a giant muddy pit. The two year old in her couldn’t resist and in she went, totally destroying the custom dress I had just gotten made for the occasion.

family photo drama

We all left the park that day a muddy mess but we ended up just laughing it off but our clothes were not soft and definitely not fresh!! Later that day after showering again, changing, and attempting to retake a spring family photo. I look back at this photo and always remember our messiest laundry mishap! Luckily with a product like Bounce I can easily bounce back from messy and even stinky laundry situations into something fresh and soft!

Bounce offers me everything I need with softening and freshening, plus providing static control and lint and hair repellency. There’s nothing more embarrassing then walking into my dance class every week in an all black ensemble with white dog fur all over it.  I’ve done that and I’ve quickly learned how easy I can avoid embarrassing laundry moments!

    I’m the queen of laundry mishaps. I won’t even list them out. I don’t want to show off 🙂

    I have tried to look at the glass half full, and remember that if things don’t go well today, there is always tomorrow. #BounceBack

    I’ve tried to adapt he attitude that tomorrow is always a new day to start fresh and make it even better than the day before. I always tell myself that just when I have it bad, someone else has it twenty times worse.

    Oh boy. If you only knew! I’ll share the most recent ‘bounce’. My husband and I decided about a year and a half ago to close our business and pack up our lives and move from Ireland to the United States. It’s amazing how much is involved in that! We are finally on the other side with a few hanging details (like his Green Card!), but nearly there!

    I bounce back by reminding myself that I am tough, and a survivor and I have family, friends and faith to help me through.

    I bounce back from the hard moments in my life with the help of loved ones and supportive friends, and by maintaining a positive attitude.

    I rarely get embarrassed – life’s too short to worry about what other people think. But there was one incident I can recall when I went dancing at latin dance place. I hadn’t planned on it so my shoes were really too wobbly for dancing. But my friend talked me into it. We danced. My shoe slid out from under my heel and I fell on my butt in the middle of the dance floor. I slid between his legs and flew all the way to the edge of the floor. My dress was up around my waist. Then I coudn’t get up! I bounced back by laughing about it – in fact I laughed so hard tears were rolling down my face.

    My husband and I have bouced back from several life changing events by sticking together, love and laughter.

    I bounce back by getting out more and enjoying each day

    When I am feeling stressed or just having a really hard time in my life. I plan a special day with my son where we just hangout and have fun doing whatever we feel like. It just helps remind me how lucky I am to have such a great son and that nothing in life can overshadow that.

    I love bounce. I really do not have an embarrassing laundry moment.

    My granddaughter made me a jar that everyone wrote something on little papers and when I am feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders I open that jar and turns the tears off every time!
