Monday, September 22nd, 2008

On Friday I went to one of those jewelry parties – Lia Sophia – where I swore I wouldn’t buy anything. But when I won a ten dollar gift certificate for earning the queen of diamonds card during one of the “get to know the company” games, I decided to buy these earrings. I really don’t […]
