The Winner of the Giveaway... An Hommage to an 80's Classic.

Let's see if you can follow my brain travels on this one:
(I apologize, first, that you even have to try.)
This August, I will be turning 40.
The other day I was at a party store and stumbled upon the "Over the Hill" aisle.
"Wait.  Is 40 over the hill? Isn't it 50?  Is this me?"
It can't be.
It totally is!
It had to happen sooner or later.
So, when I reflect on my life, my brain waves always travel to the 80's.
It never fails.
One of my faves was Sixteen candles.  (It's a classic to ME!)
Long Duck Don is forever engraved in my frail little mind saying, "Sexy Girlfriend!"  That's what my friends and I called each other for years.  Somehow, it evolved into "Sexy American Girlfriend"!

My thoughts and quotes from my past tend to get materialized into my jewelry.
It always happens.
My gift to one of the MANY Sexy American Girlfriends out there is this little treasure.
Wear it well, LARAINE!!!!
I can't wait to see you sportin' this around town!
(And I may just be a Sexy American Girlfriend, but I am NO photographer!)

I was so in love with Jake Ryan. I was thinking that I should watch this classic with my girls, then I maybe not. I see it a little different now as a mom. Hiking next week?

you couldn't have picked a sexier, more American friend of girls than Laraine. Way to go!

And 40? really? where are we going for your birthday? (I'm dead serious)
