Birthday

So, this weekend, I celebrated my birthday! I'm 13 now! Cool!
Anyway, I was surprised with a trip to Florida - Disney World, to be exact! I went there on Saturday and we were going to go back on Sunday, but it was raining, so instead, we decided that it would be the perfect day to take a trip to AGP Orlando! It was a bit far from Disney, but not too far, so we went!
I had such a good time, and I was so excited to get to go! I wasn't planning on getting anything (after Cyber Monday, I'm pretty much broke XD), but my aunt bought me......................................................
                             GRACE!!!!!!!!
I know, I'm kind of freaking out, but there is a lot of reason to, right? Along with Grace, I got an AGP shirt from Orlando (the AGP exclusive) and Kit's Photography outfit (I didn't like it online, but in person, it was stunning and bright!)
It was between Grace and Rebecca, and I chose Grace, just because I knew right away, as soon as I saw her in person, that I loved her. I was right! I now have 15 dolls, which my parents say is my limit (which is okay with me - as long as I got Grace!).
Grace may not look that amazing on the website, but in person, she is the best GOTY ever. Take my word for it; you need her.
In celebration of getting her, I did a small photo shoot just to give everyone an idea of who she is and what she looks like in person. I am already planning a photo story to welcome her, but with my busy schedule, the lighting in my house being pretty bad lately (overcast winter days), and all that stuff, I do not know when I will get the story up on the blog. 
Here she is! Grace has decided to "grace" our presence" XD She is just so, so, so stunning. The main attraction for me is her freckles (I love freckles and her freckles are slightly light like mine and in the same places too - twins! XD)
A profile sort of view of her face. The way her freckles dot across her nose and cheeks is SO cute! Her teeth seem a bit bigger than the other dolls.
More of Grace's amazing face.
This shirt I got a while ago from the "Create-a-tee" activity at AGP really fits Grace's personality.
Some shoes.
I  must admit that online I was never the biggest fan of Kit's photography outfit. While I still don't think it is completely "1930s", it is still really cute, bright, and cheerful for a modern day girl. Grace looks great in it!
Grace's hair is brown with blonde-ish/dirty blonde highlights throughout. It is so unique and stunning, and if you look closely, the highlights can be seen running throughout this braid on the side of her head.
The top of the dress is really cute.
I love the print of the dress. It is bright and cheerful, but not too bright, if you know what I mean. XD
A better view of the print!
The cut around the neck of the dress is cute, and suits Grace and the others very well.  
She comes with a charm bracelet (I originally thought you had to buy it separately, but thankfully, that was not the case.) The dog "BonBon" charm is really cute and probably my favorite out of the charms (a suitcase, postcard, heart, and macaron).
Grace with a bow.  
The sweater with the photography outfit is a nice and soft cable-knit. It slings easily over her shoulder when she is not wearing it.
And looks very cute when she is.
Grace is so, so special and I love her so much. I also really love the new outfit I got and I'm excited to incorporate them into some really cool photo stories that I am planning/working on.
Do you have Grace? Do you want her? Why or why not?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
