A couple of months ago, I was telling my husband that one of the local museums was having an AG tea party and inviting people to bring their dolls for tea. I told him that I almost considered going, until I saw that the admittance was $25. I could buy another doll with that, I'm not paying that for a silly event. My husband told me that I could've taken Calista and Bob to the event. I said "Bob is gone for the summer, remember?" My husband cracked up laughing and said "I like it that you're so consistent."
On Tuesday, we were in the car and my husband said out of the blue "Well, it's the first day of Fall, do you know what that means?" I thought about it for a few seconds and didn't know what he could be referring to, so I said "No, what does that mean?" He said "It means Bob is back!" I cracked up and said "Yeah, Bob is back."
Well, Bob may be back, but Calista is not there. Calista is currently spending as much time as she can on Biloxi Beach.
Wednesday, she spent the day in New Orleans.
I will let Calista describe her trip when she's ready to post her next diary entry. I just wanted to tell you the story about my husband, and also to show you these cool beads that we got while in New Orleans. I saw the ones below and I immediately thought that the instruments attached would make pretty decent instruments for some of my dolls.
When I saw the beads below, I initially thought that the footballs would be way too big for 1/6 scale dolls. I was going to give these to someone as a souvenir. But when I posed Calista with these, well I think she looks adorable holding that football and I'm afraid that I'm going to have to keep these for myself, also.
I just have to take a moment to express my appreciation for my husband. Not only does he listen to me talk about dolls, he actually keeps up with the storylines that I write, and he encourages me to keep doing what I want to do. And as if that weren't enough, he has no complaints about me bringing a doll along with me every time we take a trip. He smiles as we walk along streets, eat at restaurants, spend time on the beach, etc. all while having a doll along and snapping photos. He did protest a little bit about me bringing my laptop on our trip. He knew that I'd be working and blogging while on vacation. :)
