American Girl

This weekend was one full of memory making! I don't remember when I came up with this idea, (I think it was from Sheridan) but I decided that Scarlett would skip a 5th birthday party and instead we would take a girls trip to Dallas and the American Girl store. I asked my mom if she wanted to join us and then the fun began.
arriving at the Westin Galleria
Scarlett loved the hotel room :)
but she was THRILLED to finally be at American Girl!
If you know Scarlett, you know she loves animals. Honestly, if we had never mentioned the dolls, I think she would have been perfectly content to get this little puppy and nothing else!

with her new dog, Honey
She got the "Just Like Me" doll. She wanted to name her Flower, but since we don't live in Hollywood I helped her come up with some types of flowers that worked better as names...

here she is with Lily
The only disappointment she had the entire trip was that we did not take her ice skating. Honestly, she's not that good on roller skates and Mom wasn't about to go out there with her. I haven't ice skated in forever so I didn't really want to risk it either...maybe next time.
snug as a bug in a rug
If you ever plan on visiting Dallas and going to American Girl, I HIGHLY recommend staying at the Westin Galleria. They have a cheaper rate if you ask for the American Girl package and they give you this cute bed for your doll and also milk and cookies!
that is a "daddy size" glass of milk-but she loved the fancy glass
headed to lunch the next day dressed just like Lily

it was so fun to be able to do this with Mimi-retirement is awesome!
me and my girl
(ps-Jaime made my cutie patootie tank top...check out her site!)
she loved her appetizer of fruit, muffins and yogurt

It was a wonderful trip, and I am so glad this is how we chose to spend Scarlett's fifth birthday. I am thinking and hoping we can do something really special every 5 years...maybe by her 10th birthday I'll be ready to let her ice skate-ha!

Thank you for sharing with me the phrase about sorrow. It's so true.
