nuestra señora de guadalupe



that's right, 
i own a light up virgin.






ok,
so here's the story -- 


a couple of years ago 
i saw a light up virgin mary in a 99¢ store.

obviously, 
i wanted it. 
immediately.


but, 
because i'm lazy,
i figured i had time.
i thought no one would realize how awesome it was
and it would be there later. 


it wasn't.





the next year, 
i searched for my virgin mary
to no avail.


bummer.


actually, 
let's be serious,
every time i went back to that 99¢ store
i looked for that gorgeous, spectacular virgin mary.



she was never seen again 
at least not in brooklyn.
until last weekend,
when i spotted her in a store in mexico city, 
high above all of the other crazy light up christmas decorations.



i was not going to let this opportunity slip by again. 












spectacular.











added bonus -- 
 she is up just in time for our lady of guadalupe's feast day.





such a rockstar.
