I have a problem.
I was at Kroger today, picking up a birthday cake for my mom since tomorrow's her birthday. When I was in the aisle with the birthday candles, there was a display with the birthstone Barbies. Since I'm still just waiting for my birth month, I ignored them and continued on. Having picked up candles, I turned back around and saw another display with Fashionistas. I'm walking towards them and I see the price is $7.99. And I'm like, "Oh, it's probably just for the birthstone ones and they put these in the wrong place." Nope. Wrong. Kroger was selling Fashionistas for $8. That is the cheapest I've ever seen them. Prior to that, the least I'd paid was $10. I have no self restraint. I picked her up immediately--mostly because she should match Audrey's skin tone much better than the body she's on right now. And she came home with me. I've been in love with this dress since I first saw her months ago. So a new body for Audrey and a new dress for the wardrobe. Score!
Also, my first reroot is coming along pretty well. It's taking a while, but I watch Merlin while I'm doing it. And I'm having fun anyway. I'm really excited about this doll I'm making. Possible picture updates on her soon to see the progress. :)
