We won, we won!

Actually, ME won...TWO American Girl dolls, Kit and Ruthie!!!

We entered a drawing at B&N about a month ago while we were browsing the store (American Girl gives dolls away at B&N stores when new movies or dolls come out)- we saw the two dolls, thought "wow, that would be cool to win, TWO dolls!", filled out the form and put it into the box. Done. The boys even kissed the form for good luck- they reminded me of that today...

Today we get a phone call from B&N from the Public Relations department- I thought about a recent purchase I had made. WRONG! She proceeds to tell me that she's in charge of the American Girl doll drawing...and I yell, "WE WON????" and she says YES! I yell to ME and then SHE starts yelling (the woman on the phone was laughing)- we were SO EXCITED!!! TWO DOLLS! Worth about $200!

So we went to pick them up right away (we got there about 15 minutes after she called) and ME played with them all afternoon. Tonight they sleep in the elaborately plush doll bunks, courtesy of Ms. Margaret...the best doll sleeping arrangements in the house! Next week we go to Atlanta with some of our bestest girlfriends to the American Girl doll store to celebrate ME and her friends S and A's birthdays- we can't wait to take the dolls, it's going to be so fun!
Can you tell that I'm as excited as she is??? :o) If they had had AG dolls when I was a little girl, I'd have been a HUGE fan!

I love the AE dolls. I have Molly and an American Girl of Today. I work at a bookstore now and I'm having fun discovering all the new dolls and books that have come out since I was little. Congrats and Enjoy!
