Things That Make Us Grouchy?

July 29, 2015

Hello Fabulous Friends! Each week I scour my archives and the Internet to find positive, fun, distractions. Distractions that, if only for a few minutes, take the weight of the world off our shoulders (and my waistline)! 

Time for another edition of Things That Make Us Smile! 

However, this week I want to deviate and celebrate Grouches, beginning with the incomparable Groucho Marx.  

His name may be synonymous with a negative emotion, however he gave us one of my favorite quotes on happiness and the power of positive thinking:   

This is a quote I keep in my phone. Since my phone is always in my hands, this quote is literally at my fingertips when I need it. 

I have the power… say, repeat if needed.

Groucho Marx and his famous Marx Brothers were pioneers of deadpan comedy, starring in Vaudeville, Broadway and movies until 1949. True classics: 

Will you remember the password tomorrow?

Onto my second grouch. How anyone resist this fuzzy, green face?   His name may be Oscar the Grouch, but is he really grouchy? 


Oscar has been the inspiration for some adorable baby photos and toddler Halloween costumes:

 How cute is this little Pudding Pop? What a little doll!

Let’s hope he isn’t having grouchy dreams


 Trick or Treat gets extra smile-worthy when you see a little tot dressed up like Oscar.

Or could dressing them up as grouches as babies mean they will grow into grouchy adults?  

Maybe they need a hug?

 A grouchy hug is better than no hug at all. 

 They say if you kiss enough frogs you will find a handsome prince. What happens when you kiss grouches?  

However, honey, the idea of kissing a grouch is not a license to wear this outfit to bed ok?    

Smiles! Think Happy Thoughts!💋~Miranda
