Mall of America Finds

Mall of America_1_0

So during our trip to Minneapolis we stopped by the Mall of America again so I could do some shopping! Yay!

It’ was my third time there and I STILL don’t think I’ve seen everything that mall has to offer!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the place it is THE largest Mall in America.

It literally is the “MALL OF AMERICA”. Haha.

It has a theme park in the middle with rides, an aquarium, mini golf, multiple food courts…it’s just humongous!

And ladies, there is NO Sales Tax on clothing or shoes! Can you believe it!!!

Thank the baby lord Jesus right?

Well I just wanted to share with you guys some of the cute stuff that I found there since the shopping selection can be kind of limited at times in Hawaii as well as ridiculously overpriced.

First I went to this store called ‘Garage’ and I was immediately drawn to it! I ended up buying 3 things so I think I did pretty good.

First I found these adorable shorts that fade from light blue to white. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a weakness for short shorts!

And after being in Minnesota for 3 weeks I am ready for some warm Hawaii weather!

Usually I don’t like cut off shorts because they tend to make legs look a little bit thicker where it is cut off but Mark convinced me that it looks okay so I thought I might give it a go.

And lately I’ve been getting into long sleeve button down shirts and I thought this one was just perfect for the summer weather. I especially love it because it’s 100% cotton and it breathes pretty nicely.

Sorry the picture is sort of blurry on this one but it really is quite adorable in person. This sheer top is perfect over a bikini top or a regular bra!

I think they tried to sell me a tank top to wear under the shirt but…

AIN’T NOBODY GOT NO TIME FOR THAT!

After that I went in to Lola. I was so surprised that they had it in MOA!

I used to go to Lola when I was in Vegas and that was about it. I didn’t think they had set up shop anywhere else.

They were having a super sale just like everyone else so I got this basic green tank top that was $20 for $5! Score!

Everything else in the store was either for warm weather or too sparkly for me. But I’m happy with what I got!

And how can I go into any mall without going into Tillys!

I usually go to grab cute underwear and Metal Mulisha clothes but this time I found a cute top instead.

I’m pretty picky about floral prints but I thought this one was pretty calm and not too out there.

I’m not crazy about the back with the butterfly looking cutout but I’ll live with it.

I think I have a new outfit for school! Yay!

Speaking of which, I need to figure out where my classes are this semester…Hahaha.

I don’t think I even know. Hmmm…

And we went to Lindt to get some chocolate for the family like we always do!

But this time Mark wasn’t feeling too well so we headed back to the hotel pretty early but I still had a blast!!

The Unicorn may be down for the count but don’t count the Twolves out just yet!

A lot of fans were heartbroken at the loss of Ricky Rubio for the season, (and to be completely honest, I wasn’t one of them). I mean they call this a blog right? I’m being honest, don’t shoot me for it. But where as a lot of fans gave up hope of the Timberwolves being playoff contenders this year, I didn’t realize why everyone gave up so easily. Yes, Kevin Love can’t carry the whole team by himself. Yes, they need another young amazing point guard but was it quitting time already? I mean, I’m not even a Timberwolves fan but I wouldn’t give up on my team THAT quickly. Dear lord, it’s just one rookie. If you hold so much weight on just one player, you know there’s something wrong with how players are valued. It’s a TEAM effort people. Otherwise every game would be a 1 on 1 of every teams best player. What? Are we supposed to believe that a single player carries the whole team? (Not unless you’re Lebron James!) Haha. But anyways, the Timberwolves are doing just fine and everyone is pulling their own weight as well as supporting the rest of the team LIKE HOW A TEAM SHOULD BE. Of course they’re not going to be Championship contenders but we all know only a few select teams are even close to that. We watch the NBA to support the game as well as our favorite teams and players but this isn’t the end of the world. With this super compact season, players are getting injured left and right. I mean now we have 2 masked villains in LA. The Mamba and the CP3? Haha.

AS LONG AS THEY WORK ON THEIR FREE THROWS and keep up the team work, they will be fine.

 Kevin Love was struggling in the first half and his shooting was 5-13 but as he made his way into the second half of the game he managed to turn it around into shooting 11-23, not GREAT but better than where he was at the start of the game.

And surprisingly Pekovic has been playing well the whole game making 24 points (11-17), 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.

Ridnour needs to watch the number of turnovers he makes every game…AND Pekovic…needs to watch it both on the fouls and the turnovers.

And as a team they’ve made 14 out of 22, 3 pointers, pretty good.

Love + Pekovic was a great matchup against Nash + Dudley

Steve Nash had 10 assists today. Too bad Amare is with the Knicks now… but Nash has always been amazing with assists, too bad it takes more than that to get a ring. Sucks but it’s the truth.

So basically, Timberwolves fans don’t fret. The season isn’t over yet.

You WILL lose to the Lakers this Friday making it a 19 straight win for the Lakers against the Twolves but that one was inevitable, Rubio or not. But they have an easy week up until they play the Thunder.

They play the Jazz on Thursday and they’ve been better than them so far so I’m sure it won’t be that big of a deal. As long as they keep up what they did today and play a good game then there shouldn’t be a problem in winning.

Oh and because this is somewhat related…

Kevin Love helped released the new Octopus at the Aquarium they have at the Mall of America.
(I’ve actually been there, it’s pretty neat. That place really is the biggest fuckin mall in America, dear god).

And the Octopus’ name is K-Love. Huh…

Oh well. Kevin Love fed it and gave it a basketball toy. Now we just need to wait 20 years for the octopus to grow to a ridiculous size so it can rape Kevin Love for releasing him into captivity. Sounds great. Maybe we should make a movie out of it.

Hollywood! I have an idea that doesn’t involve Jim Carey! Or maybe…

PATENT PENDING! Hahahaha.

What’s the point of this blog entry?

Never give up on your own sports teams.
