Years ago, my best friend Lisa said something I never forgot: “I wanna be on The Price is Right!”
So for her birthday this year, I decided to help her knock this item off her bucket list. I clicked out of www.barneys.com, clicked into www.priceisright.com and put 4 tickets in my basket. Careful what you say around me, people. I might hear you.

But the true hidden treasure in this trip was that moments after pulling out of the parking lot, Vivi finally fell asleep. Praise God!
It lasted 28 glorious minutes.
