Lallie has SERIOUS American Girl fever. We've been getting the magazines in the mail for a while and she is like me with the Lilly Pulitzer or Pottery Barn magazines. She carefully scopes out every single page over and over again picking out all her favorite outfits. She's asking for one for Christmas (uh-oh).
Lallie has never been much of a doll girl. She loves her tiny princesses that are 2" tall and oh-so-much-fun when we step on them and get stone bruises. But lately, she's been pulling out her bigger dolls and playing with them. Recently her friend Kayla brought over an American Girl doll and Lallie has been obsessed since.
So after much discussion with Husband, we decided it was time (that and the fact that she's going to the American Girl store in January with a couple friends for Kayla's birthday).
I called the American Girl store. Can you believe that they do not make a light haired, light skinned, green eyed doll? She asked me if strawberry blond was close enough and of course, I said no. Lallie has very light blond hair, so blond it was silver when she was born! There's not even a custom order for say $10 more!
That's okay. We discovered the newest doll, Caroline has aquamarine eyes and has a Dutch background (I think).....so that works.
American Girl has free shipping until the 20th (code PF29096), so I went ahead and ordered the Caroline doll, the accessories and hair pick/brush. She also wants a doll carrying case, a set of pajamas and a masquerade ball dress and setup (all items she's been talking about for months). She also wants Caroline's ears pierced. All combined, that's like $300!!!!

I figured if she's good and treats it well, she can get the ears pierced and pick out one outfit when we go to the American Girl store. Thereafter, she can get other items on special occasions.
What about the little girls in your lives? Do any of y'all have American Girl obsessed little girls? Ah, my little Lallie is growing up!
Happy Thursday Y'all!
