Another Sick Day For Me… ๐Ÿคง

Last night was pretty bad, but fairly early I’d managed to shower, get dressed up cute, take care of Mametchi and have breakfast.

Then I did some chores and and headed out to Michaels and Aldi. I felt far FAR sicker than I looked, lmao.

I got permission fromย Christopherย for Starbucks and a cake pop. Yay! ๐Ÿญ๐ŸŒˆ

In the late afternoon my coughing started in earnest. Most of the time I get sick, this happens –cough with a dreadful, deathly taste to it. It began maybe seven years ago and comes back whenever I get sick. X-rays and tests show nothing serious but itโ€™s always exhausting. I hope this time it wonโ€™t last too long.

Anyway after I went out I felt too sick to keep walking around soon after, so my husband had to pick me up. But I did manage to get a few cute things:

Some socks and thumbtacks and some crayon clings for my window. I accidentally broke one of the clings though. ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ’”

Stuff Keeps Coming! ๐Ÿ˜…

Hereโ€™s something that arrived today. A wonderful, kidcore-y pin by innaboxdesign! I especially love the Furby and Tamagotchi featured in it! This is going to go on the front of my denim jacket.

Another patch came today, from kindersticker on Etsy:

It seems I have six patches left on the way. Some are from UK, some from Thailand and some justโ€ฆ shipping really lateโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜” I donโ€™t want to start arranging any of them on my jacket until they are all here.

Tama Update! ๐Ÿฅš๐ŸŽ€

Heโ€™s all grown up! Also, I got him the carousel room. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒˆ

By the way guys, Iโ€™m sorry if my tama spam gets annoying (same for toy spam in general recently) but Iโ€™m sick with a cold and one of my older ratties is pretty close to the end every day, today was the worst yet, this is all that is keeping me from despairing.

Eating and drinking has been hard today. Iโ€™m doing my best.

More Fun Mail ๐ŸŽโœจ

While I was at my momโ€™s, my utterly lovely package from belsartworld on IG arrived! ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒˆ It was full of special little touches that made it really unique and best of all there was a free pin?! What??? ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• I canโ€™t wait to decorate my denim jacket with it all. Thank you Bel!!

โ€ชLast thing to arrive while I was gone was a package that, while not delayed, I feared lost โ€”itโ€™s showed on my daily delivery digest but had never arrived. It finally came, and itโ€™s wonderful! Thank you also for the freebie sticker, fairy_cakes!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•โ€ฌ

Button pins from geeniejay on IG also arrived!! I love them! ๐Ÿ’•โœจ

As well as my crayon patch from CloverHare:

Not that much stuff left to come in the mail now… Canโ€™t wait to iron and sew everything onto my jacket! ๐Ÿ˜

Megaplex 2019 Wrap-Up

I’ve been busy having fun at Megaplex! It’s the last day of the con for me, so… time for a wrap-up!

Yesterday I got to go to the Crayola store with my friend Snow. It was actually our first outing just the two of us so it felt pretty special. I got a pretty nice haul:

A cute plate, freezer blocks for my Crayola lunch bag, a lanyard and a pen, a cute metal tag, an adorable little plush-blanky crayon, pink crayon socks, a very colorful cup and a patch for my jacket although I forgot to include that in the photo. ๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’•

Snow and I had lunch at a little noodle bar in the Florida Mall.

It was really good! Iโ€™ll have to check if thereโ€™s one down in Pembroke Pines.

Look how cute my new bag is!! Itโ€™s lovingly handmade and featuring a print designed by my adorable little friend Kitty (AKA Blankit). You can still go to her table in the dealerโ€™s den tomorrow and get your own!

She has several super adorable designs! Also featured in this photo are nerd badges by Madshy who has an amazing variety this year, this is literally the best her table has EVER been, go throw your money at her!! Youโ€™ll find her right next to Blankit.

The badge in the middle was done by ColbyHedgey on FA who isnโ€™t vending but has the absolutely cutest art ever and you should also be throwing your money at her for commissions! Sheโ€™s fantastic!!

It was apparently this doggoโ€™s birthday judging by his hat.

Itโ€™s ok, pup, getting older itโ€™s not that bad.

This was actually the first photo I took during this con, of Maplenut next to some of the biggest mushrooms Iโ€™ve ever seen!

For reference, Maplenut is like 18โ€ tall. I was impressed.

Here is Maplenut on another photo from Thursday, when I was waiting to give everyone their badges!

I got another chance at a photo with Pacopanda this year!! ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ’• So happy to have it to add to my wall! Last time we got a picture together it was really dark because it was poolside (Paco was in-suit) so I wasnโ€™t able to include it with the others.

I wish someone had seen my reaction to this poster by Madshy when I first saw it. I stopped on my tracks like 3 times going likeโ€ฆ is that? Noโ€ฆ butโ€ฆ IS IT?! IT IS!!!!

I absolutely lost my shit in the middle of the hallway. I still canโ€™t believe it! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• Here’s a close-up:

I received an 11 x 18 copy that I canโ€™t wait to put up for display! This was part of my prize as one of the winners of the โ€œI love Megaplexโ€ contest. 

I found a rather questionable page in one of the coloring books that Blankit brought alongโ€ฆ

I had lunch with Drake and Mwako before decompressing for a few in my room prior to the Littles meet.

Photos at the Littles meet aren’t allowed, but this was my outfit for it:

I donโ€™t get to wear this outfit too often. Itโ€™s a bit too โ€œLittleโ€ for most settings so I usually only wear it to meets, and those are rare. But I like it a lot. I should wear it more at home.

Outside the meet, I got to take a photo with Jessica and Lexxi to add to my wall!

After the meet, I got changed, and we went to The Knife for our usual goodbye dinner. Thank goodness, Kitty is just tall enough to eat here!

This dinner invariable makes for an utterly amazing evening. My favorite part of this con hands down!

I have a lot of goodies to share… I will be doing that over the next few days. Now it’s bedtime, tomorrow will be a long day (and a LONG train ride!)

New Sweater For A New Friend

Had to roll up the sleeves, but my new friend has some clothing they like. The outfit I had planned didnโ€™t work for them, they looked so uncomfortable wearing it!

Still looking a bit frumpy but I ordered a cheap paci that Iโ€™m going to customize so they can wear it.

Moon Landing Oreos? Yes please… ๐Ÿช๐ŸŒ™ ๐ŸŒŸ
