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.
