Planning For Boston | Updates and More

Hi!

I will be going on a trip to Boston a week from today! Every year, My mum, sister and I go down to Boston for an extended weekend to do lots of shopping, eating, and of course to watch the Boston Marathon {Yes I was there in 2013}. I am super excited, and since I won’t have time to get most things ready during the next week, {I have school} I have started getting preparations.

One of the things that I need to do is pick which doll to bring with me. Last year I brought Winnie, and this year I thought you guys should vote! Here’s a list of my dolls for reference:

  1. AviaAvia with exclusive sunglasses, wearing exclusive dress, hair is in twisty pigtails
  2. AmandaOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  3. RaynOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  4. WinnieOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  5. ClementineOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
  6. Summer101_1377
  7. Julie {no picture}
  8. Katie {Hopscotch Hills Doll} {No Picture}
  9. Josefina {no picture}

Okay so that’s the list of dolls I could bring. I probably won’t bring Julie, Katie or Joesfina, but you can vote for any of the other dolls! Just comment below. I will take a TON of pictures of my trip, especially with the doll I’m with. I will be able to reply to your comments and like posts, but I won’t be able to make any posts, so I will schedule posts to go up during that time. Also, my parents are going away for a week in two weeks, and I won’t be at my house, or able to reply to any comments. I will reply to all of the comments later on.

Is there any specific thing you would like me to get at the American Girl store? Is there anything you’d like to see pictures of? Let me know in the comments below.

New Year, New Photos

Hi!

A while ago I took photos of 3 of the girls (Winnie, Rain, and Clementine). They are in Holiday outfits, but the clothes fit all the winter. It is snowing today, so I thought that this would be a fun post!

Plans for the future

Hi!

This post is going to be all about my plans for the future on this blog, plus a TEENY bit of updates. But it won’t be boring. And it’s important that you read.

I have recently started posting more on my personal blog, Thinking Out Loud. I would appreciate it if you could go check it out!

filler for blog

Since I got Lea, I’ve decided to keep most of my doll stuff else were, and only keep the things I am going to use out, because my room is being eaten alive. I am hoping that I will be able to build a dollhouse over the summer, but don’t count on it. It may not happen.

I have kind of shifted personalities a bit, so I’m gonna introduce you guys again:

Super Awesome News!

Hi!

I have some news for you!

But first, my Christmas Haul

Pippaloo

Yes! I got a chocolate cake, gelatin, and two different cookie sets! They’re so cute! I’m definitely in love with these sets, and they will make some great photostories.

Ahugeonesie

I got a SUPER comfy fleece Sock Monkey onesie! It’s a bit of an obsession…

I also got a reflector, and a light box for my photos.

I got a bunch of Twisted Peppermint scented items from Bath & Body Works

Now for the big news!

Yesterday I ordered Lea’s Exclusive collection, with her ears pierced. It will come in 6-9 business days, and I’m dying!

Christmas Rush

Hi!

 

LCD Merry for blog

How have you guys been doing? What’s on you wishlist? I want to know! Here’s mine!

Pippaloo

  • Ever since I was first introduced to Pippaloo on Etsy, I have LOVED their food. It is so well made, and very realistic, and the many bloggers I follow love this Etsy shop.

American Girl Items

  • This one is sort of a given, seeing as I am always seeking out items to use for photostories, and this blog is about American Girl Dolls.

Socksfor blog

  • I love socks. They are amazing, and as Dumbledore once said, “One can never have enough socks” That’s the truth. I especially like ones by American Eagle.

Ahugeonesie

  • I want to cuddle up in one so badly! Every year, we open our Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve, and wear them to bed! It’s a really fun tradition.

I do have more items on my list, but these are the huge items that I want. I also want to reach 25 followers, and I’m only two people short. Tell your friends, because when I reach 25 followers, I’ll start working on a giveaway!

Doll Lasagna!

Recently I made some doll lasagna!
Today I’m going to tell you what I used!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • First I made the actual lasagna noodles from sculpey
  • Then I cut up and eraser for cheese
  • And also felt
  • Then I glued it together!

It’s really that easy!

Also, I’m on Day 2 of D.C., which means that I am going to a museum, followed by dinner with my mom’s friends!

Packing List! mini travel series

Hi!

A while back American Girl had a super useful packing list, and I have uncovered it! You can find it HERE. I like it because you can personalize your list, and it has a checklist format, and that is really helpful to me. I am using it for myself, as well as for my doll that I am bringing with me!

The doll I am bringing with me is Winnie, because my aunt {who we are going to see} is the one who gave her to me!
