Like, Whoa

Who's a grumpypants?



Remember when you were young and your parents would ask you that question and you would yell back (some variation of):

"I AM NOT A GRUMPYPANTS!"

Because, yeah, that was totally convincing of the fact that you were really in a fantastic mood. Obviously it was your parents' attitude that needed some shaping up.

I can't wait to ask my kids that and watch their heads explode.



So yes, this whole post has just been to admit I've been grumpy lately. (Not depressed though, thank goodness.) I will admit that it's funny to see how bad of a feeling-hider I am. In that second picture I thought I was smiling at the time.

Off to an extra long yoga session. . .and then what? What do you guys do to de-grump?

When I'm grumpy, I don't try to get over it. I embrace the grumpy. And then, eventually, I do get over it.

And, grumpy or not, I love this outfit on you. And fully support your grumpiness.

Wearing a skirt as a dress? Very cool! I am the quintessential grumpypants I'm afraid, I set the bar very high for that title.

I love all your grumpy layers. An extra long yoga session sounds wonderful. When I am a grump, I do an extra long workout followed by a massage...ahhh!
Have a good weekend!

You might be miss.grumpy pants but you still look adorable! I've taken photos when I'm annoyed and I put on a big cheesy smile- my pout is not cute! Love the fur, adorable dress and denim!

Drink copious amounts of alcohol! :) I kid! (or do I?!?!?) If I was grump I'd call my amazingly awesome sister for a cheer up :)

Sorry you are grumpy. I can empathize. I like to make people do strange and awful things to make me feel better. Like one time I made my best friend wear her dirty dance pants on her head for a whole car ride when I was mad. It worked. I felt much better. Cocktails are also very helpful.
But you are having a really good hair day. Does that help?

Grumpy moods totally stink. I work out and than work out some more or I reorganize things.

Love the vest.

Absolutely nothing! I keep on nagging (mostly at my poor bf). But after 20 minutes of grumpiness, I'm usually ok!! And in the meantime, I'm trying to persuade him, how right it is to nag when you do it for the right reasons!! And my grumpy look is far more scary than yours! You're still cute! :)

The Closet Shopper said...

So funny. I'm totally transparent too when it comes to my moods. I'm glad you're NOT a grumpy pants.

I love your outfit. Does that help? I have no idea how to get out of grumpy moods. Sleep usually helps me.

xo,
Tracy

HAHAHA! OMG, I can totally relate! I am SO not a morning person and I take my blog photo in the morning...I cannot even count the number of times I've thought that I was smiling and I was actually grimacing.
