I have some good news and some bad news.  The good news is...EMMA GRACE ROBERTS (the MyAG #41 from the Doll Wardrobe) IS HERE!!!!! YAY!!!!

The bad news is...MY HUSBAND WON'T LET ME OPEN HER UNTIL HE GETS HOME!!!!  He's even considering making me wait until Christmas!  He's killin' me!! :}

This morning he told me he wanted me to wait to open it since he wouldn't be home.  Right after UPS dropped her off, I called him to let him know she was here. 

Me:  "Hi honey...there's a package here at our house."

Hubby: [with mischevous grin] "Oh, that's nice!  Who's it addressed to?"

Me: [scowling reluctantly] "You"

Hubby laughs (in a nice way)

Me:  "Are you almost done?"

Hubby:  "Sorry, only on my second stop."

Me:  SIGHHH!!!

Hubby: [laughs again] "See you later, Babe.  I love you!"

Me: [sighing again] "I love you too!"

I called my mom to gain some sympathy.  Her encouraging words were:  "You know, it's a federal offense to open someone else's mail."  Har har.  I love my family.  (Can you sense the sarcasm?)  (Okay, I really do love my family...but they are all big teases!!!)

I'm going to go completely nuts!!!!!  The package is just sitting there, begging to be opened!!  But I will show that I have self-control.  He did technically win the doll (although I only entered him because it was an extra chance for me to win!!), :) so I will wait.  I can be patient.  Really...I can...maybe.

It's going to be a long day...

It was hard for me to NOT beg my mom in 2009 to let me open up my doll three weeks before Christmas!!! In fact, it was the SAME doll!!! :D

Hi Miranda! Thanks for commenting. It was really tough to wait, but Emma was well worth it. Isn't she just the most beautiful doll? I love her sooo much. :D Glad you have one too.
