A Special Surprise

My husband told me last Tuesday he was going to take me to a special surprise. I was kinda nervous but I went along with it. The next morning we woke up and got dressed and hit the road. I started seeing Dallas signs, we live about 2 hours away. He drove and drove and all of the sudden i saw this store!

It was The American Girl Store! I love their dolls. He knows this. He made me bring my camera and we walked up to the window.

This was one of their window displays. I have never been to an American Girl Doll store. All my dolls are second hand.

This was another display. I couldnt wait to go inside!

There was a whole bunch of these dolls, they come in different skin color, hair color and eye colors to match one up to look just like you!

I thought this doll favored my aunt.

This is Kit. I have her at home. She is from the 1930's.

This one is Addy, she is from the late 1800's. Her hair was so amazingly soft. I really liked her dress and her look.

This is Julie, she is from 1974.

This is Rebecca, she is Russian. I think she is dressed like a flapper here. I liked her as well.

This one is their newest doll, she is doll on the year. I think her name is McKenna. She is in gymnastics.

This is Molly and her friend Emily from the 40's. I liked the both!

This is Kit and her friend Ruthie from the 30's. Love the clothes! Especially Ruthie.

From the 1800's Marie Grace and Cecile. Marie grace has long amazing hair and her additional outfits that you can purchase are adorable.

We went upstairs and they had a bistro you can eat at and they had a hair salon where you can bring your doll to and they can do their hair and pierce their ears! These are some cheerleaders in a display.

This is a cute display of Kit and her friend doing laundry.

This is Julie from 1974 cooking out. I love her hippie looking dress and hat.

My husband told me that I could bring one doll home with me. He said to pick anyone of them I wanted. I was born in 1973 and since Julie was from 1974 I decided I wanted to bring her home with me so here she is!

Julie hanging out with her friends! After we left the store we did go to the Bass Pro shop and I took some nice pictures there but I can do it in my next post since this post had tons of pictures. Then we ate out. What a treat. I thought it just showed me how much my husband loves me and he so wanted to please me and he knew I would love going here. I am so lucky and blessed!
