So I went to LV in Atlantic City, and was so excited when I came across The Batignolles Horizontal. I have to say, this purse is awesome! It's big enough that I can use it as a diaper bag, (Throw in a few diapers and such). So I am retired from singing until I have my baby, then I'm going to join a new band. (The money is really good!) And I was going to save for it. $710.00 is not expensive for the size of the bag. I had $200.00 saved before I quit my last band, then in a matter of days-I spent the money on my kids! I am so depressed because I am filling in for a band and making $500.00 cash for 2 hours of singing, and the rest of that money was going towards my purse! *snif* I don't like for my kids to want things, so I break down and buy them everything I can! I called my mom, and was so upset because of the spent money! (LOL!) So Here is the good news! I went to the shore for the weekend to my summer house, and my sister met up with me to give me my prenatal massage, and I was telling her how my money is gone-and how I'll never see that purse until I start singing again *snif*, well my sister proceeds to tell me that for my birthday (This september-it's the big 3-0). :cry: My mom feels bad because I keep spending my money on the kids, and For my Birthday present I'M GETTING MY PURSE!!!!! I can't wait!!! I am so excited! (And I won't ask DH for money for my purses because he pays for everything-so my money I make is what pays for my habits!) (He's Director of Operations for Phillips Van Heusen-so I have to hear the "I know how much it costs to make that purse speech! LOL! But sometimes he will break down and buy me something!) So I figure I'll take the $500.00 and buy something else! Like the wallet to match! LOL! Then to top it off, I saw on TV from this company in California "I dream of Cake" a LV Purse Cake! Well they don't ship cakes, so I found a Baker here that does pretty much the same thing, and asked them if they could replicate this cake So I am still waiting for my estimate from them! This party is going to be awesome!! Has anyone done the cake idea before?? If so, can you share pics with me? I would love to see them!!
