Barbie Dreamhouse Surprise!

Today  I'm  sharing  a  post  that  seriously  gave  me  SO  MUCH  JOY  putting  together!  My  cheeks  literally  hurt  smiling  so  much  as  I  edited  these  pictures  and  relived  this  night  with  my  girls.  I  hope  you  guys  enjoy  it  too!

I  remember  as  a  child  always  wanting  a  Barbie  Dreamhouse (they  knew  what  they  were  doing  when  that  named  it  a  dream  house  that's  for  sure)!  And  while  our circumstances  growing  up  meant  I  never  got  one,  it  felt  that  much  more  special  surprising  my  daughters  with  their  own  Barbie  Dreamhouse!

When  the  girls  were  old  enough  and  we  had  the  space,  I  talked  about  it  with  my  husband,  and  we  still  weren't  totally  sure  they'd  love  it  -so  we  bought  a  smaller  dollhouse  just  as  a  test  run.  They  still  love  that  house,  but  it  was  clear  that  all  three  of  them  couldn't  play  with  it  at  the  same  time  -it  just  wasn't  big  enough!  

So, after  a  year  with  that  house  we  decided  to  get  a  Barbie  Dreamhouse,  and  let  me  tell  you  I  do  not  regret  it!  I  was  worried  it  would  be  too  big  (it  stands  at  4  feet  tall)  -but  that's  actually  what  makes  it  fantastic!  All  of  the  Barbie dolls  they  already  own  (who  are  beautiful  shades  of  brown  with  hair  ranging  from  straight  blue  to  tight black curls  - love  the  Barbie  diversity  out  now)  fit  in  perfectly  - from  the  bed,  to  the  couch  (that  converts  into  a  bunk),  to  the  pool,  car,  and  more!  And  my  daughters  all  have  plenty  of  room  to  play  together! 

Love  so  many  parts  of  this  house,  but  a  few  of  my  favorites  are  the  pool, slide,  the  elevator  (that  works  and  fits  4  dolls!),  and  the  little  details  like  the  grass  out  back  and  the  painting  of  the  back  exterior  complete  with  string  lights  and  all.  And  what  I  loved  the  most  is  the  wonder  and  imagination  I  see  in  my  girls  as  they played  for  hours!

We  decided  to  make  it  a  full  dine  and  watch  party,  so  we  enjoyed  some  of  the  Barbie  Dreamhouse  Adventures  Netflix  show (again  -LOVE  the  diversity)  and  also  played  with  our Barbie Ultimate  Kitchen playset - love  that  you  can  create  all  types  of  food  using  the  safe  Barbie  dough  it  comes  with,  and  even  hear  food  frying  on  the  stove  top  or  the  oven  timer!  It  was  perfect  to  play  with  as  I  got  dinner  ready!  Once  we  got  her  sisters  to  bed  Liv  and  I  cuddled  up  on  the  couch  and  spent  some  time  playing  with  the  Barbie  Dreamhouse  Adventures  app on  my  phone  - something  that  definitely  didn't  exist  when  I  was  a  kid,  but  was  such  a  fun  and  creative  game  to  bring  the  Dreamhouse  to  life!

Thank  you  so  much  for  Barbie  and  Mattel  for  partnering  with  me  for  this  project  and  helping  some  of  our  dreams  come  true!
