A perm in our host family's salon: RD$500

 Supplies for an epic cake: RD$300 (time and talent donated by the chef).

A crowd to help celebrate: 5 minutes of mentioning a party, and 20 minutes to let the word spread.

Grilled cheese and Coke to feed the crowd: RD$300 + 20 minutes of cooking.

Assorted presents: RD$400

The smile on my goddaughter's face when I threw her possibly the only birthday party she has ever had: absolutely priceless!

Halfway through the preparations, my host sister mentioned that if I ever have a daughter, I'll probably dote on her a lot. I don't know where she got a crazy idea like that.
