I had a great friend who setup the whole thing. She spent a bit more than I wanted, but it turned out great and wondering distant relatives (our aunts and uncles) understood that we are happy and we have a wonderful supportive community.
Before that I had my nails done for the first time and I have to say I really like having my nails done. They don't wear too well on me, but they are fun. I never really understood the whole sex in the city reinventing your look thing, but I have to say I understand it now and I intend on putting more effort into my looks.
