Sunday was a FUN day

So despite the fact that my Sunday began on a shitty note about Lenny, I didn't want to go home. I had driven through a god damn snow storm for this blog meetup so it was going to happen even if it ended up being just me and Krysten. Thankfully... Anna and Amy joined us. And because they blog anonymously I won't link up. Anyways. They were so awesome, cute and nice. The four of us had a super fun time at the Mall of America.

Krysten and I had talked on Saturday how we both want to get red lipstick. We have tons of other shades but we've never gotten a good red. And every self respecting girl needs a red lip once in awhile. We ended up stopping in Sephora and we got this lady who was overly eager about makeup. Which I suppose is good...she's probably on commission. Anyways. She puts a different shade of red on each of us. The experience of having someone else put makeup on you is weird. Amy wanted foundation and the lady wanted to take all of her makeup off. Which hello--- no girl is going to let you do that. Jesus. While she was inching away from sales lady pushing the $60 spray foundation, Krysten and I snuck a picture. Which is APPARENTLY a huge no-no inside the store. Nobody told us why and I think it's a bit ridiculous. So check us out in our illegal, hooker-lipped glory:
We ended up not buying lipstick because Dior lipstick is $30 for a half tube. Which is insane. I'm sure there is more expensive out there, but neither of us have that kind of money laying around for lipstick.

So we moved onto other stores. An alarming trend we noticed was that almost every store had what I'm going to refer as Russian Chic. Like this hat and the matching mittens? All I need is a long coat and those hideous boots behind me and I'm set as a Russian hooker. Well I'll need the $30 lipstick but I feel I can pretty much pull the look off. I don't think I have to tell you that I basically felt like I had a dead animal on my head. Gross feeling.
 Well then we went into Ragstock and found, what I consider, to be the motherload of awesome hats. This my dear lambwhores? Is a hat meant to look like an elephant. Because when you think winter you automatically picture an elephant.
But we pretty much all agreed that it looks like a small but chubby penis and some unfortunately spaced balls.
Anna had to leave us early so she missed my elephant hat shenanigans. :( Sad day. After walking the entire mall a few times we decided to part ways since Krysten had a work meeting and I had to drive back to Superior. So we snapped a quickie picture:
 Amy, Krysten and Me

It was a fun afternoon. We've talked about doing this monthly after the holidays and I think that would be super fun. We'll have to rotate or something because it's a bit of gas for me, but it is still fun. And these girls were super fun to shop with. But I'm convinced our next gathering NEEDS to be a sex toy party because that is hilarious and fun. And awesome. And could you just imagine the pictures? Girls-- it needs to happen. :)

You girls were looking so good and I really and truly am glad you went to get some joy in your life after the events prior to it. You needed a break. I do hope the rest of your week goes your way.

anywhos - sounds like a fun day. Did you make it to Ikea?

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

At least the Sephora lady didn't try to talk us into buying anything. That would have been awkward.

Anna @ The Owl & The Phoenix said...

Girl, you can link me up if you want to! I don't really mean to blog anonymously per se =)

Did they say something to you at Sephora about the picture?? Weird! I'm so bummed I had to leave early - hopefully my stupid back will be all better by next time! So glad I got to meet you three though =)

Also, I'm totally up for a road trip to Soup Town. I haven't been up there since I graduated in 2003. I miss it =(

It DOES look like a penis! BAHAHAHAHA!!!

Aimee said...

First off, I am super super sorry about Lenny., I have 2 cats of my own and 1 dog and I would be devestated if I had to put any of them down. :(

Looks like you had a lot of fun over the weekend. Thats awesome how you met up with bloggy buddies.

Makeup is super expensive. I spend way too much money on foundation, blush, and eye shadow. everything else I buy cheap so $30 for 1/2 a tube is ridiculous!

LOL @ the elephant/penis hat.

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

OMG! Love the penis hat!

Oh, My Darling said...

Oh my! It's wild how much you two look alike!
