Skippy Says: A Talent Of Epic Proportions (OOTD)

I got some pretty disappointing news yesterday, and spent the better half of the morning sulking. I kept the pity party going pretty strong for a while because I'm really good at that. I take after my grandma in that respect; a woman who used to say something that translates roughly to the equivalent of "once I stick my lower lip out, I won't suck it back in for a while." But then my mama brought me some cherries (my favorite) to make me feel better, and a few hours later my papa brought me some Russian pickled tomatoes (my other favorite) to help as well. God bless them, they know the way to my heart is through my stomach. And they're willing to take a break from work in the middle of the day to go out and make their way there. I want to be just like them when I grow up.

  7. I've had my heart set on a skirt like this since I ruined one I got in a thrift store. Sorry you were feeling crummy, but I'm glad your family was there to make it better. Sometimes just having someone there to care can make a big difference.

  10. Aww sorry about your crummy day :( I always cheer up with food too - chinese food and chocolate help me feel better!

  11. Reason #10,132 why you're my blogging soulmate: the way to your heart is through your stomach. Methinks we would get deliciously chubby together with a tasty mixture of mashed potatoes and... more mashed potatoes.

  12. That necklace is beautiful.

    I'm the same way. Once I'm in a bad mood, I just decide I'm in a bad mood and sulk and act a little cranky, and then the next day I'm over it instead of still trying to pretend everything is fine.

  28. When I was younger, I was told that you should never wear blue and green together, but you definitely proved that "rule" wrong! :) I love your skirt and it's great inspiration to wear more of them even in the winter...I always chicken out when the temperatures drop! :P
