I Want the Barbie Life

Christmas Miracle.jpg

I want the Barbie life because that babe has everything!!!! At the ripe age of 54, I have rediscovered my love of all things Barbie. Why? Well, I spotted a Barbie a few months ago while poking around a very cool, funky and eclectic antique shop on Cape Cod. I don't know what made me do it, but I purchased her for three whole dollars and it's the best money I've ever spent. I have had so much fun because I lost my original Barbie four decades ago. Well, lost isn't really the right word. My Mom gave my original Barbie to a family friend and I've never forgiven her for it. This past Christmas, a miracle occurred when Ken returned to Barbie's side after an approximate 40 year absence. I found Ken in an old, dusty box full of Christmas decorations in my attic. He had been in that box for four decades and I had no idea. I just always figured he went out for a pack of smokes 40 years ago and just got lost.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.jpg

Barbie has some buddies who appear to be eyeing each other. I love their fish net shirts. I found these at a truck stop in Texas, of all places, while Mom and I were headed to Florida in January. I seriously thought about buying at least one of them, but not for 20 bucks each. I don't like the shirts that much.

Barbie has a few habits she really needs to work on in 2015.

Just chillaxin after a long day of shopping with the girls in Ruidoso, New Mexico.

Barbie loves her new beanbag chair.

Lookin' really cute in her mini-skirt, but she only has one shoe. She lost the other one at the dueling piano bar in the Depot District in Lubbock.

Oh no!!!! She had just a little too much fun.
