Peaches and Cream

When I was little, I was a pretty typical girly-girl. My sis and I looooooooved Barbies, Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Ponies, and baby dolls.

On my 5th birthday, I received my very first Barbie Doll as a gift from my parents. She was a BEAUTIFUL Peaches and Cream Barbie. I loved her soooooooo much! She was my favorite Barbie for years. I literally loved on her and played with her until she started falling apart.

The other day, Chris and I were at the store, and guess what I spotted? THE PEACHES AND CREAM BARBIE DOLL, re-released with a few updates, but overall pretty much the same. My heart literally started beating harder the second I saw her.

Chris thought I was NUTS (and yeah, maybe I am) when I made him take my photo with her in the store. If I still had a paying job, I so would have purchased her.
When we got home, I begged my husband to get a crate of my old toys out of the attic so I could see if my original Peaches and Cream Barbie was in there. She was! My Mom knew which toys were our very favorites, so she saved several of those for us.

Here is the original Peaches and Cream Barbie... complete with a torn dress, ratty hair, and a bald spot.

I saw her in Wal-Mart one day and totally thought of you!

I don't remember you liking My Little Pony's at all...

I wasn't very onto Barbie but my cousin was. We used to fight over that one. I saw Peaches and Cream in the Barbie catalog that is for collectors and I freaked out and called her ASAP. We were like little kids on Christmas to know our favorite Barbie was back.
