In other words, expect the unexpected. I had planned on getting a new, handpicked by myself doll or two direct from AG but that changed a wee bit. ^^ Believe me when I say this was an intense process. LOL
|(American Girl - Sonali Matthews)|
Quite a curve ball from what you all were expecting, yes? I know you were expecting #58 and possibly Rebecca, so was I! I never in a million years would have thought I'd be the owner of this absolutely gorgeous girl! I'm soooo EXTREMELY happy.
After seeing soo many photos of Sonali and her beautiful chocolate skin with long dark hair, I was to the point of creating my own Not!Sonali using a re-wigged #47. I was actually going to pick up #47 from AGPLA this month because let's be honest, Sonali's secondary market prices can almost be as bad as Kanani or McKenna's. But when I happened across this beauty on eBay and I knew she was mine. It was the LONGEST 6 days waiting for her auction to end but when it did and I was the winner... I was beyond happy! I can't even explain how estatic I am about this girl.
It's without a doubt, I'm super happy because my collection is COMPLETE! (For now... I think... LOL... Don't judge me. ^^) It feels good knowing I'm finished in terms of adding new girls. Now I focus on other things, like the blog I spoke about not having the doll yet but her whole world has already come together. Yep, Saleen has a blog all her own. Don't worry though, the other girls will pop in from time to time. ^^
This was why I've been silent for the last week. Didn't want to spill the beans! I'm sooo happy right now!
