. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Crabby McGee

October 28, 2012

Crabby McGee

Two posts in one day?  I couldn't possibly leave you with just this post from earlier, so here's another:

jacket: old navy (similar)   dress: francesca's (similar)     boots: dsw (similar)   scarf: made my my sister

Want to know a way to NOT turn your spouse's bad attitude around?
Call them Crabby McGee. 
or Crabby McCrabster. 

On occasion Chris would call me that when he is joking around about my bad attitude and it can go one of two ways. 
I may just laugh and it could slightly improve my mood. 
or it may have a high possibility of making me even more crabby. 

Either way I have to say that last week I just may have won an award for being ultra crabby at home and at school.  
The fact that it was dress up each day last week (crazy hair = crazy kids) and we had a power out and one half day of school.  That my friends, is a recipe for a crabby teacher.  

However, I am well aware that I am in control of my attitude and sometimes I wish that wasn't true.
It is much easier to be crabby and annoyed than choose to not let those things get to you.

So this week I'm working on putting away the Crabby McGee and having a better attitude! 


Hope you have a good start to the week!

Oh my goodness - I had a Crabby McCrabberson last week as well - it had to have been the theme days at school. Here's to a better week!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I've been in a crabby mood this weekend :( Glad to know I'm not alone!

Love your cutie outfit!

I'm the same way when it comes to being notified of my bad mood. It's either funny or sooooo not funny. It happens to us all. The great thing is- youre determined to have a different week!

Danavee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

HAAA! I say "grumpy mcgee" all the time!

Katie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am not looking forward to Halloween at school, with it being in the middle of the week and a full day of school. I should dress up as a crab!

Kait said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

When Dane makes fun of me while I'm angry it goes one way...south. I immediately get more irritated even though he's only joking around!

LEIGH said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yeah making fun of an angry person is not helpful! But it's fun to talk about later!

Alana Christine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

lol. I'm pretty sure that would make me more angry, too! It's easier just to ignore bad moods than to point them out.
Hope your week is great!!

Kacie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOVE that scarf ;)

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look adorable in this outfit! And my husband does the same thing. He calls me Grumpy and he always says "you need to relax". We all know that telling someone to relax only makes them more agitated! Haha, so don't worry, I am right here with you! :)

Love your infinity scarf, SO CUTE! :)

aki! said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Aww. My boyfriend always make me laugh when I'm upset. I do think upset is different than crabby though!

Meg {henninglove} said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

i definitely have those days and seriously it just takes my husband to call me out on it to realize how bad my attitude is. good for you for committing to change this week!

Helene said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

such cute boots! and i didn't mind the money post giveaway! haha

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I totally understand how a hubby's teasing could lead one of two ways when you're crabby! I've scared myself sometimes;) Hope you feel in a better mood soon!

Janna Renee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh how I know what you mean! Our hubby's can put us in a better mood or simply make it worse depending on what spot we are in. I am happy that when I was crabby this morning, the hubby was super supportive and made it all better.

Abbey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Look at you, you over achiever ;) I always think if I post more than once a day people won't see the first one, but I've read you should post 50/month... Don't know if I have the time for that though. I love the red and denim, it's super cute!!

I get into the same moods. We call it Hangry at my house. It's a lot about blood sugar levels for me.

Lily Marek said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is adorable! I've been wanting a chunky red infinity scarf like that. Love it!
