Adventure Time!

Last weekend we had a debate tournament at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. The tournament itself wasn't the best ... Sarah and I competed in front of our favorite judge first round and he ended up giving us bad speaker points because he thought we were ~less than~ sweethearts to our competitors. As a result we placed toward the bottom of the bracket throughout pre-elimination rounds. In the end we went 3-3 (you need at least a 4-2 record to advance to elimination rounds), losing 3 competitive rounds against really good teams. Even though we didn't win as much as I would have liked to, we performed really well. I am proud of us and looking forward to the next tournament.

Usually the UPS tournament is the same weekend as halloween so it has always been a tradition for teams to dress up together. Even though the tournament fell a week short of halloween this year our team decided to continue the tradition and dress up anyway! :) As a team, we were the cast of Adventure Time -- my nieces would be proud.

Sarah and I were Marceline and Princess Bubblegum. 
Those characters fit each of our personalities comically well so everyone thought it was fantastic. 
In all seriousness, this is probably what we were going to wear that day anyway. 
I wore a pink Lilly Pulitzer Lori dress that I bought this past summer during the Endless Summer Sale  for wayy cheap. I also wore a pair of pink tights and a Princess Bubblegum crown from a local halloween store. The Lilly dress is one of my favorites. The back is cutout which I think is what makes it so amazing. 
Every time I wear this dress I just want to spin in circles and frolic through a daisy field.

For those of you who don't watch the show, here's a picture of Marceline and P-Bubbs. 
They're basically Sarah and myself.

The entire team did a fantastic job with their Adventure Time costumes!

In the end I will definitely look back on this tournament weekend and remember how adorable our costumes were. Not that Sarah and I weren't as successful as we should have been. And that's what matters, right? :)

ALSO! I am super excited about the American flag costume that I will be wearing today on actual halloween, sooo look forward to those pictures!

What are your halloween plans and what are you planning on dressing up as??
