072023 I Was In Shock & New Arrivals!


Well, I had the SURPRISE of my life this past Saturday night.  Seriously…I think I am still in SHOCK!

As many of you know, I returned from Mexico last week and then worked all week.  And Friday night Indiana had a show in North Hollywood.  It was a late night!  I had to work all day Saturday and Sandy, Val and the store gals wanted to take me out for a birthday drink after work.  I did not WANT to go.  I was exhausted.

On the way to meet them at Gigi’s, I got a text from Sandy that said….

“Are you coming to GiGi’s?  I can’t stay long because I have the dogs.  Doug is in SF.  Cindy and Robin are here with me.  Susan & Peggy can’t come.”

I was like, Seriously WTF?  I said to Val, “I don’t want to go…do I have to?” and she said “Oh come on, it will be a quick drink.”

So, I walk in the door and it is dark, but I see balloons and a lot of people.  I don’t think anyone said “Surprise”, but BOY was I surprised!

Thank you to everyone who showed up.  It was beyond epic.  As I was walking towards Sandy while they were singing Happy Birthday she said I looked mad and I think I even punched her arm.  LOL!  Here I am with Sandy and Kelly after I calmed down :)!

I don’t know how Sandy pulled it off, but I had absolutely NO CLUE!

There were so many friends, consignors and customers there…it was awesome!  I will share more details and photos in the big ezine at the end of the month, but for now here is group photo.

Well Sandy was telling me about all of the people that she invited and she said, “I text your kids and they never got back to me.”

My response….”Oh well, typical.  They never text me back either”.  Then I turned around and who was walking in?  Houston, Indy, Emma, Grandpa and their friend Alex.  JOY JOY!

Sandy even made home cooked food for the entire party!
