I was sorry that Brook couldn't make Anita DiMauro's surprise birthday celebration at Mandalay downtown. We had dim sum, of course, Anita's favorite, and there were women from Anita's past and also women from MADD.
We had an incredibly good time ... Carol said we should all bring gold jewlery because Anita wears so much, so I brought gold chewable bracelets from Baby Showers, and some wonderful things from Lanikai Bath and Body: an "our lady of guadalupe soap", a Tahitian Gardenia Body Butter, a green frgg candle and a loofah gardenia soap.
Happy Birthday Anita and thanks for all you do for MADD.
P.S. We all agreed to meet in Kailua so they could see the new store.
