Shopping went a lot longer than I planned. When the dust cleared early this afternoon, Xiu had spent over $1000 between her and us. She has heels, flats, dressy clothes, casual clothes, her own makeup, and even fake nails. She has the clothes now to look like a debutante or a girl gone wild depending on our mood. Things went so well that I made her order her breast forms today. We even took her to Chinatown to shop for a few things traditional to her Chinese heritage. The shop was recommended to me by a Chinese salesgirl who said there was absolutely nothing wrong with playing up the mysterious Asian woman thing because it drives some guys wild. She's figured out it's not ending at Halloween. I really liked that one, but she still doesn't get just what she's in for or how much power she's given us.
