fun tag :)
1) YSL Parisienne
2) I don't think I have one, I'd have to think about it some more.
3) Paris, of course!
4) I'd say my 16th. I just had a few friends over and we hung out, and since it wasn't such a big production it was so much easier to enjoy.
5) I'm not much of a cook. I'm know in my family for being the best at microwaving popcorn, talented, I know.

You got a surprise party on your sweet 16? Thrown by your boyfriend?? That is, like, every 16 yr old girl's dream. I don't think any of my high school boyfriends were capable of organizing to throw a surprise party. Amazing.
