I have two confessions:
1) I used to be a super-duper, major Barbie fanatic when I was younger. I had SO many different barbies, ken dolls, barbie clothing, etc. I used to enjoy playing Barbies with my cousin, Jennifer, especially, and we could play for hours!
2) One of my Barbie dolls was a Michael Jackson doll. (I'm also not ashamed to admit that I used to have a serious crush on MJ...back in the Thriller days. I mean, who didn't??) Anyway, the Michael doll was very cool with his red jacket, one white glove, and shiny socks. He had a little stand that helped him stand up and even had a microphone he could carry in his hand. So funny!
While Emily and I were discussing how we each used to have one of these cool Michael dolls, she referred me to her sister's recent blog post celebrating Barbies. I laughed so hard when I read it and it brought so many memories back. If you were also a Barbie-fan, I recommend you checking it out, too, and enjoying a short trip down memory lane. (Even if you missed out on having the cool Michael doll.)
