So, if I back up several years... my roommate from college from my sophomore year became one of my very BEST friends. One of our favorite conversations was finding out we both LOVED American Girl dolls when we were little... we would laugh and reminisce about which dolls we had, which outfits we had, furniture, etc! We would talk about looking through the catalog for what seemed like hours at a time!
So... guess what she sent Katelyn???? That is right... an American Girl doll to look like her... blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin! And a rose petal outfit to match her room!!!!!!!!
My husband thought I had lost my mind!!!!! I handed him the catalog and told him TO GET READY because this was going to be the talk of our house in a few years!
I know you think I am crazy but since I have been pregnant, I have been trying to decide which birthday I was going to take Katelyn for a trip to LA or NY to visit the American Girl Store and attend one of their fashion shows and tea parties... take her doll to the hair salon, etc! I know I will have no problem talking Sara Grace into joining us for this excursion... honestly it will be an excuse for us to re-live part of our childhood again!!!
The best part is that one day I will be able to show Katelyn these pictures of when she was the same size as her doll=)
