I was at Houston Memorial City Mall twice last week and my husband was forced to go three times. Poor Daddy. The third trip was because on the first of two trips, I did not have American Girl Doll school supplies on my list of wants at all, only Miss Caroline. I refused to even look at anything that was not about Caroline.
However on the second visit, while I was checking out with four blue Caroline coats, my sweet Personal Shopper Nancy, allowed me to share with her the exciting news that Hope Faith is going to Kindergarten and how that will change so much of our lives and American Girl Doll Store visits. I cried as I said to her she will not be at the store when the doors open on the 27th for the debut of Maryellen. For the last two years that is where you would find the three of us. (2013 new Bitty Baby collection and 2014 Beforever Launch). We got Samantha, a second Addy and an Addy to give away. We love both dolls dearly and had to have matching girl dresses. But, with school starting August 24th, it will be impossible to be at Maryellen's launch. It is heartbreaking. So, to make a long story shorter, we left with our many wonderful memories.
Then I realized there's no way Hope Faith can start Kindergarten without an American Girl Doll Backpack, Messenger Bag and Pencil bag.
So back to the Store Daddy had to go. Later we found out Hope Faith's God-Mommy drove from another city for the same reason, our American Girl Doll has to have her School Supplies. So now she will have two sets for school.
Hope's God-Mommy picked the Purple collection, we picked up the Turquoise. My Baby was waiting at the door for Her Daddy. I will stop here.........
P.S. We rate them 100 on the quality of their school supplies. Mother, God-Mother, Daddy and Daughter approved.
