Get out and vote!

I wouldn't consider myself a particularly political person, I don't normally push my opinions in public forums, so I'm not going to do that here.  But please, please, get out there and vote today!  Hopefully by the time this is actually posted I'll be wearing my "I voted!" sticker with pride.

(Edit: apparently they aren't giving out stickers this year in Chicago.  How will people know to congratulate me on fulfilling my civic duty?!)

And now, a series of amusing America-related photos from back in the day.  Warning: I haven't always had red hair...

My grandma decorates her yard with many, many flags for the 4th of July each summer.  That outfit I was rocking, yikes!

For the 2008 election, we made political candidate cookies.  Here, see Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton.  I believe we used a snowman cookie cutter for Hilary, hence those hips.  

An amazing blanket my sister made for my brother to celebrate that he was no longer an ex-pat.  Just a regular Pat.  


  1. Hahah I love that you have so many photos for your past political moments. I'm voting after work tonight and they better give me a freaking sticker!

  2. I'm really jealous of your sticker, Kristina. I voted with an absentee ballot and didn't get one. Boo!
