Pink Pouty Pants

This is how I felt yesterday.

Pouty. For no good reason either. My general stress level sits at about an 8.5 naturally, but coupled with PMS, the fact that my skinny jeans do not a skinny me make, and some upcoming big career shifts, I was exceptionally irritable.

I posted this on instagram last night and got the sweetest (some quite humorous) responses:

I mean I laughed out loud at several of these comments. Cheers ladies, cheers. And thanks for making me feel a little less pathetic while drinking wine by only the company of my dog.

Ok so what had happenedΒ yesterday was….

The emotional roller coaster began when I got this email from sis, and literally had tears running down my face I laughed so hard. Why? I don’t know, it was either the iced coffee or my lack of sleep, but I just thought this was the funniest thing ever. Plus if you know my sis, her delivery is just hysterical.

That is funny, right? hahahha.

Well, then I got into a little tiff with a company I felt wronged by over some charges, so I got a little sassy, and then I felt bad, and then I cried. HA.

It is SO not like me to get snarky, but I did, and of course being that my middle name is “i’m sorry” I wrote another email apologizing this morning, and am now at karmic peace. We came to an agreement, and I even got a thank you from the company for my apology. All is right in the world. πŸ™‚

I really do enjoy companies that really make sure their customers are happy. And while I know they were cursing me yesterday, and saying damn this overly pink chic-I appreciate that they took the time to make me feel like I was taken care of. I will remember that for all my future business endeavors, to go the extra mile to make sure my clients/customers are happy.


OH. and then I cried AGAIN to the boyfriend. Not kidding. cried again. Over nothing. Literally. He laughed at me and hugged on me whilst we watched Catfish. So romantic, I know.

Sheesh, I’ll try and get it together! haha. Happy Wednesday!!

    Everyone has those days! At least you made it through and can laugh about it today.

    But the question everyone is clearly dying to know the answer to…strawberries or raspberries in your wine?!?!?!?! lol

  2. Cara says:

    Those hormones will do that to a girl. Hope your week gets better!

  3. Ohhh goodness it sounds like quite the rollercoaster of a day! I hope that today is better and treat yourself to another glass of vino just because πŸ™‚

  4. I've definitely been there… the worst is when you're crying and you have no idea why you're crying so then you cry even harder πŸ˜›

    Hope you enjoyed the whole bottle last night hun, if not you should finish it tonight πŸ˜‰

    P.S. Adding fruit to your wine makes it even yummier and prettier.. great pick-me-up when you're blue/stressed.

    Feel better pretty girl! It's tailgate time on Saturday! Go CATS!

  6. I had a day like this yesterday, too! Maybe not quite as dramatic, but it was for the birds. I received the same spam email about obesity, too!

  7. Being preggo I have these days often!! Ha!!! Hope today is better for you!

  8. Girl, preach. This is normal, as far as I'm concerned. My medication is beer and phone calls to my girls who have known me since puberty hit. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

  9. Tiffany says:

    I had a weepy week last week too. My poor boyfriend said, "Honey, what's the matter? You have no reason to be crying." So I cried more. Ha!


  10. Brooke says:

    Oh man, I relate so much to this post!! I had a complete meltdown this morning right before work, it was not pretty!! At least you had wine [with strawberries?] & a good boyfriend to cheer you up!! πŸ™‚

    I think my boofran has gotten used to a twice monthly "I think I just need to cry." He either starts the shower for me to lay in for an hour, or leaves me alone in my room. God bless the man. He's a saint.

  12. Kate Milton says:

    I cry way more than is normal. I recently moved into a position at work that is SO stressful and where I have to actually say "No" to people – it eats me up inside. Usually Thursday, I have a breakdown at home and let it all out by pathetically drinking wine alone with my doggie LOL πŸ™‚

    Wine always makes everything better! I feel ya girl πŸ™‚
