Happy birthday, Barbie!


Today she turns 50, but I swear she doesn't look a day over 25!

Say what you will about the unrealistic expectations set by her, ahem, assets....I loved Barbie as a little girl and I am none the worse for wear. I spent many blissful hours making up elaborate scenarios for my Barbies to act out. My most vivid Christmas memory is of the year my sister and I got the magnificent three story Barbie Dream House, complete with spiral staircase and elevator. My Barbie lived the glamorous life - a hunky GI Joe husband, a limo, a pool, a stable and the largest Barbie clothing collection known to mankind.

On second thought, maybe Nate does have Barbie to blame for my shopaholic ways....

Did you hear about Tattoo Barbie? I think they're taking their ideas a little too outside of the box now...don't think I'd ever buy that one for Grace!

Yes happy birthday Barbie! Though, have you seen her new body and 'assets'? I liked her the way she was, I mean how else are her clothes going to stay up? haha
