The second week of December my husband and I traveled up to the Kansas City area to visit our families and it just so happened that our birthday (We were born on the same day! He's about 6 hours older than me.) was the day after we were planning on coming back. I did get a gift card from my in-laws but I hadn't planned on going to the KC store just because we really didn't have the time. But my husband, being a total sweetheart, made some time and took me there the morning we were leaving KC as a birthday surprise.
I wasn't sure I was going to get a doll but if I did it was between #58 and #26. In the end my husband chose and I walked out with #58 and a bunch of clothes to review in the next couple of months.
You'll have to excuse some of these pictures. There was NO way I was going to wait till we got home to get her out so the unboxing took place in the car!

For now she's loving the Plaid Party Dress and so am I! It's adorable.
Now back to Charlie! And her gorgeous curls:
Have one more for the road:
