I've always wanted an LV piece in Damier, but the opportunity never presented itself. So my birthday came and went on Wednesday. (I don't feel any older in my mind!) Got a couple LV books from co-workers, Tiffany jewelry from siblings, invisalign from DH (we paid the entire balance this past Monday and I still don't have them on yet! ush: Ouch! They're gonna hurt.) But still... No birthday cake or brown boxes for me. I'm supposed to be on a purse ban until November, so I actually thought I wouldn't get this at all, especially when I knew it was limited to Hawaii and Japan. Until two wonderful ladies contacted me... When I laid my eyes on her this afternoon, I knew it was meant to be!! I'm glad I am on a purse ban and didn't just pick up another messenger-style bag. There's been quite a few threads already, so sorry if y'all get bored of the Sophie. But I'm just soooo excited!!! Yay! Happy birthday to me! Thanks MJ and Joie for remembering me! Ms. MJ, I owe you two boxes of Beard Papa's cream puffs now! P.S. DH totally thinks tPF members have lost it. He meet Ms. Joie today and knows my "friends" are real people with DH's just like him.
