I know. I know. I hear what you are saying. It’s Tuesday. I shouldn’t be posting on a Tuesday. But it was brought to my attention by another fabulous blogger that today is National Barbie Day. Can you believe Barbie has her own day? I must admit I’m still having a little trouble wrapping my head around the idea. But she has been with us a very long time and she looks so much better than I do. So not fair.
But like most young girls, I played with Barbie. I can’t deny it. The guilty proof is there in print to forever haunt me. *coughs* What were we thinking with that horrid 70’s hair? Gag! (Psst, let me tell you a secret. Barbie was never my favorite doll. Nope. I would save all my allowance for a little doll called Dawn. I would find her or, later her left overs in boxes titled Barbra’s Fashions. The Dawn Doll stopped coming off the assembly line after 3 successful years). So sad. But that’s another post.
Now my daughter has just come into the age of Barbie. It’s her new-found love. Her Barbie Dream House could kick mine to smithereens and back again if I still had it. The improvements they have made are something else!
While what few dolls I have left from the collection my sister and I had sat in a box in our garage, my daughter’s dolls scatter all over the floor, spreading like a disease into every room and space of our home.
But sharing these pictures and ridiculous facts was not why I am posting on this crazy birthday of sorts. Today I wanted to bring attention to two fabulous bloggers in my life and their posts honoring Barbie. They have said everything I would have had to say, only better. I wouldn’t try to put something together that would compete. These fabulous bloggers and their reads are:
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed the 70’s me and the walk with Barbie on her special day. ;D
