A brand new American Girl doll!

Hubby and I went on a roadtrip to Seattle WA 
August 26 to 28th, 2017. We hadn't been there for a while and he suggested it, so I went along for the ride. LOL! Of course we checked out Nanea Mitchell, the new AG 1941 doll just released. We missed the special event, but they didn't give out any freebies. 

I was interested to see her in person. She is very cute, with a different face mold, and different eyes. 
I really liked all of her clothes and accessories.

Here she is in her meet outfit with her little shopping bag which is reversible. 

This is her pretty school dress and shoes, which also comes with a hair clip with her name on it, and a special pin with Remember Pearl Harbor on it and a small pearl. She has a cute shop but it was nearly $300 US so of course I didn't buy it.

I didn't buy this outfit either, although I wanted the ukulele but it was sold out!

The bathing suit and fishing set.

I loved the PJ's so I did buy them.

Her Hawaiian dress.

Nanea, the one I bought, at the Best Western in Alderwood, where we spent 2 nights.

I must be nutty to buy yet another AG doll, but I really enjoy my collection. They make me smile.

Here she is, all ready for bed!

We spent some time by Lake Washington nearby. This is a very lovely spot in the world. I'm so glad I live on the West Coast of NA. I can visit whenever I like.

This is tradition; taking a photo of me outside the AG store with my purchases. Our Canadian dollar is still not doing too well, but Robert did get a great rate through Coast Capital, so it wasn't too bad.
But I had to control my spending, as I haven't sewed anything and sold it in a very long time.
We had a lovely get-a-way.

Lucky you...a new doll! Nanea is beautiful, but I must resist. I MUST! I really don't have room for many more dolls, and I want to focus on enjoying the ones I already have. Oh, who am I kidding...I'll probably NEVER stop bringing home new dolls! I look forward to seeing more of your new Nanea. Congratulations!

Thanks, Angela! She is really cute. I have her beside my computer desk, wearing her school outfit with the pearl pin. I just love her. She is quite different. It's nice to have a change. I love the historical dolls best.

Me too! I think Samantha will always be my favorite because she is the one I used to drool over in the AG catalogs when they first came out, and she is the first one I ever bought. Now I have many of the historicals...I really like Felicity and Caroline as well. Something about having the history to tie in with the dolls makes it so appealing.

Yes, I agree! I wish they would make a 1920's doll next.
