Memoirs of a cousin
One important essential for an 11 year old girl is a plastic, fake Birkin from Marshalls for $5.99- SCORE! So deliciously tacky.
Monday we went to the Shedd Aquarium which was fun, but SO crowded. We enjoyed the Shallow Seas 4D show. The glasses were very Devo.
Lily is half Chinese (from Taiwan), so Monday afternoon we went to Chinatown in Chicago. Lily has been teaching herself Mandarin Chinese (the child is brilliant) so she wanted to go hang with her peeps and try out her conversational skills. She was totally able to talk to the store owners and our waiter at Joy Yee Noodle (Joy Yee is awesome by the way) and she was so proud. My husband and I were blown away. I told her if she becomes fluent I will take her to Taiwan. Keep your fingers crossed, because cousin Jenny totally wants to go to Asia.Here we are with the Year of the Monkey(posh) statue in "New Chinatown".
She wanted a traditional Chinese dress, so we found "the perfect" one then I put her hair in buns, complete with chopsticks and she looked beautiful -like a little Geisha.....even though Geishas are Japanese and not Chinese, but still she was SO CUTE!!!!!
Lily makes me laugh and I needed that this week. I am very thankful she is here.
Today our agenda includes pedicures (with my beautiful new gray polish from Dear R-thanks R!) homemade pizza, a trip to T.J. Maxx, and the premiere of Top Chef tonight. Good times!
Have a beautiful day.
