Hello, My bucket list friends! I hope you are all enjoying this last little bit of 2017. During This time of year there is a lot of gift giving going on and as silly as it may sound it’s important to not leave yourself off the list. As the year winds down, I want to do my best to end it on a good note, so I decided to treat myself by crossing off a bucket list item and making one of my childhood dreams come true.
When I was in elementary school I loved looking at the American girl catalog and I really wanted one of the dolls, but they were a lot of money, so I got the mini dolls and enjoyed reading the books and for a while I had moved on. As I’ve grown up I have learned that it is important to remember, that even if you are no longer a child it is not too late to make your childhood dreams come true. After debating if I should spend the money or not I choose a doll from the American girl website. I picked the truly me doll #23 her hair is lighter than mine, but they were back ordered on the doll with the darker hair, so I went with the beautiful #23 doll. I was so excited when she finally arrived! I got her out of the box as fast as I could, and you know what? I think I was just as excited as I would have been if I got her when I was a kid. I knew I had to give her an awesome name, so I turned to the internet and I looked for some unique and fun girls name. After searching for a While I chose Clover as her name. I think it fits her very well. Having my own American girl doll is a dream come true. I’m so happy that I crossed off this list item. To be honest this has been a stressful week but getting Clover gave me a major happiness boost and I’m ready to have a Merry Christmas with Clover by my side .
