Were you in the Santa Maria Macy's today?

If so, then maybe you saw me make a complete idiot out of myself!

The "up" escalator was out of order, so I had to take the yucky elevator to the second floor (in hopes of finding some Martha Stewart muffin pans.) Well, when I was ready to leave I got on the "down" escalator (which WAS working) and as I started going down, I noticed the big Martha Stewart emblem above some Christmas stuff that I hadn't seen yet. I love looking at her things and I thought, how hard can it be, I'll just go up the four or five steps of the "down" escalator (as opposed to riding all the way down, hiking back to the elevator, etc.) AND I FELL. My shoe and purse went flying, I somehow managed to scramble up and grab them, and kept pressing on towards that dang Martha Stewart sign. I think I stumbled again (it's all a blur to me now), but somehow I managed to make it up and quickly dashed over to hide behind some merchandise. No one saw me, thank goodness!

Needless to say I'm completely sore--my hand and legs got scraped up, my ankles hurt, and I seriously think I nearly lost a toenail. I guess that's what they mean when they say, "shop till you drop!" (Also needless to say, I really enjoy Martha's line at Macy's--perhaps a little too much.)

no way! that's pretty funny, brianna. but, can i just say that it's totally worth it for martha stuff. i haven't seen her new stuff at macy's yet, but i'm dying to see it. it's a good thing macy's isn't in ag. my kitchen cabinets would be even more overstocked than they currently are and we'd have no money.

Ha, Ha!!! Poor Brianna. I wasn't there, but had I been I would have been laughing hysterically and feeling really guilty about it. Falling on an escalator has to hurt! Yikes. So, why are falls so stinking funny? =)

Rachel said...

I would of loved to be there to laugh with (at) you. Are Martha muffin pans better than other muffin pans?

I was there and I saw the whole thing. I'm proud of you. This is exactly the reaction I was hoping for when I introduced my new line at Macy's.
Good things,
Martha

I LOVE IT! Isnt it amazing how often we try to save a few seconds and end up making it take even longer or worse!!! Hope you feel better...being sore is no fun!

One time I fell on my buttocks on a patch of ice right outside my high school.

Your fall was worse.

Oh bummer...I tripped on a crack in the sidewalk when I was 7 months pregnant, I had an alaby though to try to save me and he missed, so down I went, but I saved the belly, so that was good. Hope you recover from the scrapes and embarassment:).

Thanks for the dr. reccomendation. We're keeping him on what he's on right now and then at the end of the month we go for testing, so I'll see who my ped. reccomends and mention that dr. to him. How is the new medicine working for Kaitlyn? Doesn't parenting get so different when you have some sort of health difficulty?

first of all, i soooo wish i could have been there to see this! ha! i love how you hid afterward! way to fully throw yourself into the shopping experience.

second of all, santa maria has a macy's?! where?!!! is it at "the mall"? i thought the mall only had gotschalks and robinson's may. (ahhh... reminiscing about our "mall" trips together... we seriously need to do that again!)
