Goodbye, Dolly + FSTG Giveaway Winners!

31

Sad news on the nostalgic doll front. I’ve just learned that Kirsten, my favorite American Girl doll, has been “retired”. :(

I think the sub-head on this article pretty much says it all:

“Parents and young adults left upset, while kids move on to newer dolls.”

It’s so true – I’m genuinely sad for Kirsten! She was always my top AG because her name was so similar to mine and she was a pioneer girl (hello, IowaLiving History Farms!)

Sadder still, after reading the article I now know that Samantha was retired last year! How could they discontinue Samantha? I feel as though she was the rock of the American Girl clan. I actually never owned an American Girl doll (too expensive) but read the books cover to cover, many, many times. What is this world coming to?!

Aaanyways. :) I may have gone a little overboard on the packing front. My bag went from this:

I just pulled the main flap over and pretended that it was all closed up. ;) She’s now sitting patiently amongst my work out bag (there’s a gym where we’re staying!) and toiletries bag. All we need now is Ben. Doot-da-doo…come on Ben! I’m ready to get this party started!
