Mini-Haul: Forever 21 Accessories & a Carrot

Mark and I had a fun cities trip yesterday because, well, anything including IKEA meatballs has to be fun. We didn't do too much shopping but I did pick up some cuties from Forever 21 that I wanted to share with you!

The necklace is so cute! It's a metal little collar, but it looks sooo dainty.

And these little nail stickers! They aren't the best ever, kinda chipping already, but these were only $1.80. Compared to the almost 10 bucks for Sally Hansen, I'm totally fine with the tiny chips! I want more more more!

AND THE BEST CARROT FRIEND FROM IKEA! Ikea's stuffed toys are the best and this giant carrot is a welcome addition to my little collection.

What I Wore to VOTE!

Election Day makes me feel about 100x more patriotic than any old 4th of July, and I definitely choose to dress as cheesy and literal as possible. Stars & Stripes - Red, White, & Blue!

I'm a little more than anxious today, so I'm going to lay on the couch, refresh Twitter, watch CNN, try to crochet, but mostly just fret and wait! For those who know me, my political views are preeettyyy, preeetty obvious - and if it gives you any clue, I did tear up a little while I showed my Minnesota Nice by VOTING NO TWICE. ♥

My voting trophy and my tiny little polling place in the country. I went at 10:30 this morning and I was voter number 78! Great great great!

What did you wear today? The colors of the flag? Slogan shirts? Comment and show me, I want to know!

(A note: please don't tweet or instagram pictures of your ballot - might be illegal and we don't want to lose any votes, now do we?)

Adventure Time Happy Halloween: Maddy as Finn the Human

Okay, okay, okay. I KNOW that my very lovely, dear friend Kelly-Anne had the ultimate grand supreme Adventure Time family costume this year. (Check it out here, if you haven't seen it yet. It's been officially endorsed by AT, even!) BUUUUT - I did my part in honoring Adventure Time by dressing as Finn this year. I had to work all day and didn't really go out, but I love Halloween too much to not dress up at all, right?

Adventure Time Finn Costume

Work was fun, but very boring. I mostly ran around with my sword and took pictures with my coworkers all day. Here's me & one of my best gal's Klea as a Toddler in Tiara. (I told her she looked like a raver kid.)

I was under a little constraint due to our dress code, buuuut I think I did okay for a casual costume. I mean, Finn isn't too tough! I definitely took my own suggestion from my Outfits That'll Make You Say: Like, What? post with the hoodie and sneakers.

Sweet Emily was an awesome Day of the Dead skull and I had fun making her pose in creepy places around our store.
