On my brother's last birthday, the Big Niece was disappointed that there weren't any balloons when she woke up.
When I told her that my birthday was coming up, she declared that there should be cake, balloons and loot bags. While I was able to fulfill these requirements, my little birthday dinner still didn't manage to pass muster as a "real party" as far as the Big Niece was concerned.
Well...I tried...and aren't those balloons just adorable? :p
It was the movie that got me interested in the Shopaholic series. What can I say, me likey Hugh Dancy...nevermind that this series has 'guilty pleasure' written all over it given the archaic gender roles and formulaic writing.
Bought and read all the books while I was in the Philippines last summer and signed up to be alerted when this one was released.
Am not done yet, but it's a fun read so far although I think the characterization of Minnie seems off age-wise.

Got a free trial subscription from LOVEFiLM. First round of DVDs arrived the day after I registered.
Depending on your subscription, you get to borrow a certain number of DVDs per month. Probably won't subscribe because I don't like that they count the individual discs in a box set.
Love their envelopes though. You send the DVDs back in the same envelope they arrived in after tearing along a perforation to remove a section and pulling off a protective strip to expose the adhesive. What can I say, I'm easily impressed?!
Don't normally use nail polish mainly because of my obsessive handwashing. Besides, I suck at applying it, but have been practicing recently.
The Big Niece is at a point in her life where everything should be cute and beautiful. Case in point, last week she told me that we couldn't be friends since I wasn't pretty because I wasn't wearing a dress. When I showed her my freshly painted nails the other day, she declared that they were pretty and that they should be like that "all the days."
