retiring the kissy face

these islands were once panama’s jail.
well, lock me up.  pretty please.
so.  here’s the deal.  i don’t know why i revert to the strange kissy face. 
some people look really cute doing this.
but not this girl.  
I guess i do it hoping that maybe it’ll turn out cute.  but knowing it won’t.  
How’s your kissy face?  I wanna know.  
mine’s going into retirement.  
 Hope you all had a perfect wednesday!  
We’re off to a baseball game.

    I personally like the kissy face. I tend to over do it in photos though, especially after a few drinks, whoops!

    It looks cute on you, too. I promise!

    I like the kissy face on some people, although, other people go over the top with it. You are good with it.!

    Beautiful pics! I also make some sort of strange face whenever the camera goes off… no matter how hard I try to stop it still comes out-ha!

    oh i had to retire the kissy face in high school after i had 3 horrible pictures with it. my best friend loved taking pictures like that so she would do that face and i would just smile. haha

    um, i love the kissy face. its classic. cla-ssic. i was known for it in pictures my freshman year of college. but unfortunately mine went in to retirement about a year and a half ago. but i'm keeping it in my pocket because we all know how things come in and out of style like that…

    My kissy face is terrible, but unfortunately, that doesn't stop me from doing it, too much. 🙂

    Yours, on the other hand, is quite fabulous. In fact, it pretty much rocks. I think it would be hard for you to look bad…even if you made the ugliest of faces. You're soooooo pretty!

    I don't do a "kissy face" actually. Mine is more of a "pouty face" and I do it because I don't like how I look when I smile! I feel like smiling makes my face look big or something haha.

    You're just always traveling aren't you!?

    out with the kissy face in with what i like to call mary-kate and ashley olsen's "prude" face. apparently when they smile for pics they say "prude" and get that little lip pucker.

    love the new design of fairy tales! can't wait to see you next week! love you

    I've never been able to pull off the kissey face. Ever. And when I've tried, it's resulted in the worse cringe-worthy photos ever!
