My new American Girl doll arrived today! I decided to sit in the driveway and read a Sherlock Holmes mystery while waiting for her to arrive. Because reading about a British genius will make the mail arrive sooner.
So, isn’t it cool that it’s Leap Day? I always wished that I had been born on February 29th . . . (btw, who else saw today’s Google Doodle? I almost died from the cuteness of it.)
Anyway! Are you ready to see who I got?
Drum roll, please . . .
Here’s a hint: she’s a Beforever doll!
Everyone, please give a warm welcome to . . .
Yes — as so many of you correctly guessed, I bought American Girl’s 50’s doll, Maryellen Larkin.
Since I already have a doll with “Mary” in her name (I’m looking at you, MJ), I decided to rename her Elise — Ellie for short.
Wave hello, Ellie! :)
She is so beautiful, and I’m super happy that I got to add her to my collection.
The Happy House of AG doll count has been upped to twelve! O.o
I love how innocent she looks. ☺
Can we talk about her ponytail? ‘Cause it’s just super cute.
Do you have Maryellen Larkin?
