Party Favor

My daughter Leah went to a birthday party last week. It was a swim party at the Y. They rented out the pool for the night and had about 15 girls, as well as friends of the older sister which included Steph. It was a pretty cool evening and had rained most of the day so I wondered if they would cancel the party and have it on the rain date but it cleared so the party went on.

Leah and Steph both had a wonderful time. I haven't taken them swimming all summer so far. Work and bad weather have held us back. I hope that we can go soon, my lack of a tan is really distressing.

When Leah came home from the party she opened the party favor bag. It had a Louis Vuitton handbag in it. Yes, you read correctly... a LOUIS VUITTON! My first thought was that it had to be a knock-off, but by every indication it is real. And they gave them to 15 little girls. The purse is really cute with smiling flowers on it. It is the perfect size for a little girl. In other words, way too small for me. Leah has never used or needed a purse at this time but once Laurel and I raved about it she was pretty happy with it and would not let Laurel borrow it.

I checked on Ebay to see if I could find the purse and I did. Someone is selling a used one for $300 and has 1 bid so far but it has not reached their minimum. I am seriously considering recommending that Leah sell it. She has been asking for a new DS because her top screen is broken and she wants the new Harry Potter computer game. With $300 she could buy both and have money left over.

Party favors have become really crazy lately. Does anyone agree with me?

By the way, if you are interested you can follow me on Twitter. I have 4 followers so far and I only know one of them. Weird, huh?

Twitter, huh? You know, it would be immensely helpful if you posted a link.

Eh, what do you know? I found you anyway.

For the good of the order:

Yikes... I knew it had been a couple months... but I didn't realize you'd gone this long without posting.
