Best Early Birthday Present EVER!

While I usually like to celebrate my birthday for the entire month of July (and first couple days of August), when I got a message from longtime friend of the show (that's my new Wendy Williams thing to say now when referring to the blog), Erica, saying she had a birthday present for me -- I decided to role with it.

Summer sangria on a rooftop patio with one of your favorites would have been a good enough birthday present- but no.. she had a wonderful surprise for me.

OMG!! I lllllove Emily Giffin! Erica and I had played book swap last year when we traded 'Love the One You're With' and 'Something Blue' <-- other amazing reads from Ms. Giffin! But then she said to look open it up..

(btw, sneak peak of the Jade nails I tried out this week via Sephora 'Read my Palm')

AAAAAHHHHHHH! Emily Giffin signed my book! That means we are best friends!! I'd almost bought this on the Kindle... but I'd much rather flip through the pages knowing I have the author's endorsement :) Thank you thank you Erica, you made my upcoming train ride to NYC this weekend even more exciting! Book review to come shortly! Now if only I can get Mulder and Skully to sign a dvd of the X Files for Erica's birthday...

I just finished that book, it's awesome! Hit way too close to home for me on soooooo many levels (you will see why) so I had to devour it and then delete it off the kindle! Ms. Giffin (aka the woman I would like to trade lives with) did a signing at the pru, Yes, I semi-stalked her! Enjoy!!!

everyone keeps talking about how great e.griffin's books are - I'm so curious to start reading them!

that sangria looks delish and I LOVE that inject wendy williams references into regular, ordinary conversations. too funny.
