2018 Blooper Reel – 50+ BLOOPERS from Coming Up Roses

Happy last day of 2018. What a year. It’s had its high points…and it had some low points. For every glamour shot of life, there’s a whole blooper reel in the background. So without further adieu, let’s bring back THE POST that I anxiously await all. year. long. Namely because it’s by far one of YOUR most favorite posts, and I aim to please. Even if it’s at my own expense. 😉 I look high as a kite, I look drunk as a skunk, and I look…just bad. But last year’s bloopers were one of my most read posts pointblankperiod, so let’s go at it for round three (remember 2016’s?) and all end the year with a solid chuckle.

Cheers to never taking yourself too seriously and always finding the time to laugh in 2019.

Here we go…it’s BLOOPERS TIME!

Now let’s play “caption this” in the comments section, and re-caption any of the above bloopers. ? I’ll be spending the rest of the day pondering my actual IRL bloopers of the year, and doing some intense goal-setting + analysis. Also mommying a newborn. Send help. And coffee.

Really tho, I really value the gift of being able to laugh at yourself. So hopefully me making a fool outta myself on the internet is somewhat motivating to help you do the same. Errr – to just laugh at your own bloopers more, and not take life too seriously. ?

What were your biggest “bloopers” of 2018, and what are you most stoked for in 2019?

Let’s make it happen in 2019.
