Mia in our fabulous conference room!
So, Mia and I are both at APRA. Our eyes met, she loved me immediately, and I was totally not lame. (Okay, she's completely awesome and nice enough to hang out with the old lady.)

Carpet of horrors.
Important thing number one that I've learned here: when I have to listen to people talking into microphones 10 feet away from my head for hours, it gives me raging headaches. Two: Mia calls my blank face my bitch face, which is exactly what it looks like. Three: convention food can actually be good, although it is all made up of salad, cherry tomatoes, and chicken.
Top-ANA, Pants-White Stag, Necklace-self-made, shoes-TOMS.
Also, protip: the Mall of America is big and H&M is a very seductive store. But I am easily seduced by cobalt blue things (*cough TARDIS cough*). 

I now have blue suede(ish) shoes. Am I not awesome?

I had read that H&M's sizing was strange, and I can fully attest to that. They had a very sad little corner of plus size items, but this regular large burnout tank fit me perfectly.


  1. Oh, you met Mia! And Mia met you! I am so insanely jealous right now. Also, I love blue shoes and those are fab!

    1. See, if you really loved us, you would have become a researcher and come to Minneapolis solely to meet us. BECAUSE IT'S YOUR DUTY.

  2. You look splendid in peacock teal. Ah, H&M ... I have been to that store exactly once in my life, but I understand the allure. :)

  3. Ahhh, I'm so glad we met! It definitely made the conference side of the trip more exciting, and you're truly rad. I hope we're able to hang out again at future APRAs, or even outside of work functions.
