...when I got home from a SIX and a half hour drive in the snowstorm from the airport, after I missed my flight due to the TWO hour drive there because of traffic. Thank GOODNESS she came to brighten my day and my DH was there to sign for her - A few days ago I thought to myself, Self, you better get yourself on some more BG 08 waitlists, because I decided I was in love with the color and really didn't want to miss out. So I called BalNY and they said, oh they're here, what do you want? So I said a City please and they sent me one! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! Here she is: pretty stiff right now of course - leather pretty good - more smooth, less crinkly/chewy, can't wait to break her in really well, she will look 04 smooth, I predict... Color is wonderful, a warm pink with lots of lilac undertones - I'm a pink gal and I think this one's perfect... She will go back in her box until my bday in February Happy Holidays, Everyone!
