A Failure Friday

Come on, admit it.

You have had a project or recipe or something fail while you are building your home in progress. Anyone? Anyone? (Name that movie.)

And while I love, love, love all of the linky parties (in fact, I'm linked to some now) showcasing our project "wins" - you know that once in a while there are some project FAILS.... And I think that's OK. In fact, I think it's more than okay, I think it's fabulous. Who wants perfect projects all of the time?

So what better way to start the weekend than to laugh at some of our attempts to build a home that maybe didn't go as planned.

I'll go first, but I'm HOPING some of you out there will send me something I can use for next week's A Failure Friday.

Okay, I'm NOT a baker. I've had some successes, but mostly they turn out this way. This was my attempt at a German Chocolate Cake for my husband's birthday. No, don't adjust your computer monitor, it is that lopsided. Don't ask me why - I have no clue. It just ended up that way. We laughed, took a picture for posterity's sake, and ate it up. (It did taste good, which is what matters I guess.)


  1. I love your blog! I stumbled across it while I was blog hoping. I wish I had a pic of this skirt I made for myself. Once I got it all done and on it looked like I had made a pioneer skirt from my grandma's curtians! Now I can laugh about it, not so much then!

  2. "Buehler? Buehler?" "Voo-Doo Economics." I heart Ferris Buehler's Day Off!!

  3. My biggest fail was chicken noodle soup in the crock-pot. It was back before kids but I still remember it. The problem was the recipe called for a noodle that was not a quick cooking noodle. Well back then I was not sure how that worked so I used regular egg noodles and let them cook for well lets just say too long. I went to check the soup and well it was mush. I tried to save it by getting all mush out but well that did not work either. So I called DH very upset and told him to bring supper home(Yeah Burger King!). I wish I had a picture of how bad it was but I don't. I like the idea of fail friday. I might add that to my food blog. I have a few recipes that fit that. :p
