HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DUFF!
Hope your Birthday is wicked awesome!
In other news, we've had a great couple of weeks here with some fantastic special events and some extra awesome visitors! Last Friday we were so thrilled to have Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky drop by and visit. Duff and I met Nikki last year at the Crybaby premiere on Broadway. She mentioned that she'd love to come see the shop someday and we're so glad she finally did. She helped Duff work on some cakes and was her adorable and hilarious self. We love you, Nikki!
And now, for the last installment of....
