In Which Lisa Drops the Ball....

Yesterday was Laura's 30th birthday.

Want to see what Laura did for me for my birthday?

Yeah.

She and Stacey pulled an all nighter to get it done in time.

For the record, it's not like I pulled a 16 Candles and totally forgot. It's more like I was out of town all weekend, took the red eye home Sunday night and didn't plan ahead.

Big old Lisa FAIL.

Luckily, we've got some amazing friends who totally made Laura's day yesterday.

Friends like Elana Johnson, Shannon Messenger, Kimberly Derting, Suzanne Young and Beth Revis. Friends that are doing THIS for us.

Friends like Sarah, who sent Laura this slideshow presentation (she did it way better than I could have, anyways).


























On top of that a couple of amazing reviews for Liar Society popped up yesterday here and here. Best 30th birthday present EVER.

So...wish my poor, neglected, middle sister Happy Birthday in the comments. Sorry I suck.

Sincerely,
The worst sister EVER

I can't believe Elana dyed her kid's hair. That is freaking awesome. But why does Shannon look so bored? It's probably a good thing she left Hollywood behind.

Also, in that slideshow, what kind of cocktail is it that you too are slurping out of watermelons like donkeys at a trough? I want some!

Oh. And Happy Birthday Laura!

Happy Birthday and welcome to the club! When I turned 30 I remember thinking, "Man. Now I really have to be an adult. That stinks." ;) Hope you had a great one and that your sister makes it up to you!

Happy Birthday, Laura!!!

Those are a lot of drinking pics. I'm just sayin'.

Because I love you and in honor of your birthday, you may want to consider looking into one of these options.

The Lindsay Lohan Pickled and Purloined 3-day seminar.

Charlie Sheen's upcoming bestseller, Three Sheets to Nowhere(just a hit show and lots of money).

Hope you had a great birthday!

I'm loving the vlogs dedicated to your book! :)

And I'd totally support your pink hair change, but Twitter is not letting me change my avatar - technology is not always my friend *sigh*

I'd say happy birthday, but a bunch of people have already done that, and I prefer not to be unoriginal.

Happy Kwanzaa!

(Was that inappropriate? I kinda hope so.)

Thank you for your hard work to collect and organize, to share with you a lot about the fashion thing, and this is very useful to me.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
