Just Another Mimi Monday

It’s Thanksgiving week! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (I’ve already started prepping my dishes) and in true glutton fashion, I’ll be going to two dinners this year (so thankful for my family and friends). The first dinner starts at 4:30pm, so on this Mimi Monday, Mimi is modeling what I’ll look like by 7pm this Thursday.

I can’t wait for Ad Girl and the Bear graphic novels, Ad Girl and the Bear merchandise, and of course Ad Girl and the Bear movies. Hello Hollywood! This is the new Sex and the City (sorry, Girls just depresses me and The Carrie Diaries doesn’t even have SJP’s stamp of approval). Just for fun, Ad Girl drew an avatar of me—maybe I’ll even make a cameo in a future story!
