I am going to give this to my friend today and hope she likes it! She doesn't have time to go online anymore so I know she won't see this blogpost:)
I am STILL waiting for this little lady to come! It is almost hilarious all of the things I am trying to do to get her to come. I ate almost a can of pineapple yesterday, a really spicy pepper, Mexican food, tons of raspberry tea and I have been walking on the treadmill everyday! Any other suggestions to get this little lady to come?! Well have a great day! I will post soon:)
