Though apparently the accent over the o was missing in bon fet, I chose this because of the commma before Lisa, and the exclamation mark. Showed the enthusiasm I was looking for though both answers were the same. Also, the explanation was sincere and showed the friendliness I was looking for. Thank you for taking the time for your explanation.
