I can feel myself losing control the second I enter the store. I have always loved dolls and having a little girl has allowed me to relive my doll obsession full force.
I went on a small spree there a few weeks ago to get Pickle some Christmas presents and I couldn't resist a matching doll/Pickle Christmas outfit. Point blank: There's nothing cuter on the Earth than a little girl and baby doll in matching outfits! Case in point:
So Pickle and "Bitty Baby" got all gussied up and we headed over to American Girl for lunch today to meet my friend and her two little girls.
One of the fun things about having lunch there is that they give you little high chairs so the dolls can sit and "eat" with you. Of course, Pickle marches to her own drum and immediately dismantled the high chair, leaving Bitty Baby draped across my purse in the boothwhile "Meow-Meow" got the royal throne:
Through the majority of the lunch, she amused herself by pouring water from the big mug into the little mug.
And occasionally giving her doll a drink.
And Meow-Meow got some too. What's with the expression on her face here!?!
They have a little game on the table--a box filled with questions to discuss while you're waiting for the food. One of the questions we got was "What three celebrities would you like to be friends with?" I thought this was a fun question! Mine would be:
1. Gerard Way (big surprise, right?)
2. Oprah Winfrey
3. Michelle Obama
Who would yours be?
It was so much fun having lunch with my friend and getting our girls together. We don't see each other nearly enough and we have vowed to do it more often. Here we are (why do I look so squinty??):
And here's the whole gang:
One funny thing--my friend's four year old had a hard time with Pickle's name and called her "Ostrich" through the whole lunch. "Do you like your cookie, Ostrich?" It was SO cute!! I think Pickle has another nickname now!
Ostrich all dolled out on the way home!
P.S. I added the "Follow Me" feature to my sidebar. I'm not totally sure what it's all about--but I'd love if you would follow me!
