My New American Girl Outfits- A Photoshoot and Reviews
Oh, my goodness! I LOVE all of my new outfits! I’m going to show you pics of my dolls wearing them and also do mini reviews! Let’s start with Kaya in the Purple Peacock PJ’s.
Okay, can I just say adorable?! Kaya look so pretty in purple and I have a feeling she’ll look good in a lot of dark colors. She also looks good in bright colors 😉
Here’s a close up of the shirt. When you just glance at it you can’t really tell that it’s peacocks on there, but when you get up close and study it, it is very noticeable. I think this shirt is really cute!
Here are the slippers. They are a lot different from the other slippers I have, being not as stiff. These ones are kind of floppy. They are very soft and oh, so cute! I rate this outfit 5 (out of 5) stars!
Now moving on to Saige in Saige’s Sweater Outfit!
I couldn’t resist putting her next to her Painting Set! She looks so cute!
This is actually a very pretty outfit and will be great for mix and match!
I love that the tank top has a cool design on it instead of being just plain. Something strange, is that it only velcros halfway down. The sweater is very soft, but can be a little difficult to style just right. Other than that, it’s perfect!
The sandals are adorable and will go with so many things! The jeggings are really nice, but since they are so tight, they are kind of hard to get on. Once you get the feet through they are easy to slip up 😉
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars.
Moving on to Annika in the Cozy Sweater Outfit!
Annika is SO excited to finally have this outfit! She had her eyes on this for quite a while (doesn’t she look so cute?!?) 😉
This sweater is very soft and easy to put on. I find it a little odd that this also doesn’t velcro all the way down the back.
This headband is so cute and easy to slip over her head as it is pretty stretchy.
The boots are adorable!! I love the little buttons on the side!
These boots were very hard to pull on over the pants. I was working with them for a long time until I finally got them on.
The leggings are very cute and easier to slip on than the ones in Saige’s Sweater Outfit.
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars!
Now, Caroline in the Frosty Fair Isle Outfit!
Ooooh, my gosh!! Caroline looks so beautiful in this outfit! Her light hair and eyes with this outfit just makes me die!
This has got to be the softest sweater EVER!! When I took it out of the box I was like “Oh, my gosh!! This SOO SOFT!!” I really want a sweater like this 😀
This is a really nice sweater and I absolutely love it! I have nothing negative to say about it!
These boots are amazing! They’re really floppy, but hard at the bottom. They are super easy to slip on. I love the little snowflake dangles (“Let it go!” LOL!)!!
The leggings are really cute, a tad hard to get on, but not too bad 😉
Okay, the headband is cute, but it is SO hard to get over her head! It’s not stretchy at all which makes it even harder to get on. AG should’ve made it stretchy, that would solve everything 😉
I rate this outfit 4.5 (out of 5) stars. If the headband fit better, it would be a 5!
Kirsten in the Western Riding Outfit!
Kirsten looks so sweet in this outfit!! I really love her in red 😀
The shirt is SO cute!! Look at the face on that horse!! It is so sweet! 🙂
The skirt is adorable! I love that it’s jean and that it has fringes!
The boots are so cowgirl-ish and cute! I just know that the girls will be wearing this outfit a lot when they take care of the horses 🙂
I didn’t even notice that this outfit came with a bracelet! How cute is that? I really like that it’s braided!
This outfit is 5 (out of 5) stars! No complaints at all!
Well, that ends our Photoshoot and Reviews for today! Don’t they all look adorable?? Here’s a question for you; Who do you think looks cutest in their outfit?
My American Girl Birthday Shopping Spree!
Hi girls! I had such a fun time yesterday at the AG place and spending time with my family! My mom and I left to go to the AG Place at 10:00 AM and got there at about 11:10 AM. We took our time and covered every inch of the place. It was so much fun!! So, let’s begin looking through the pictures!
Online, Isabelle’s Bar & Beam looks kinda big, but it’s actually pretty small! Which I guess it has to be, LOL! 😛
Isabelle’s Pajamas and her cat. I think Isabelle is so much cuter in person!
I love this outfit!! Pictures don’t it justice!
LOOVE THIS SET!! Why is it $64??? UGH! 😕 😛
Pretty Isabelle 🙂
That tutu is cute!
Pretty birthday display 🙂 (I love the doll on the right!)
Look! It’s Annika!! She looks so pretty!! 😀
Okay, can I just say ADORBS?!?!
I LOVE this doll and outfit!!! 😀
This is just such an amazing display!! Can you see all the tiny Easter eggs??
I can NOT tell you how I excited (and shocked) I was to see the Western Riding Outfit there!! It’s not online anymore, but it was in the store!! YAY! 😀
Just look at how cute that is! 🙂
I love Isabelle’s Coral Sweater 🙂
That is such an adorable hairstyle! I should’ve studied it more 😕
Those two look like they’re having a lot fun 🙂
A cute classroom display 🙂
The other side has the Gala Party Scene! I need to get that someday 😉
I love Isabelle’s Studio! It is so cute! I was a bit disappointed when I saw that the dress form was solid and not squishy…
Julie’s Car is amazing! I think that the doors should open, though 😛
So pretty!! My mom said she’s gonna buy Julie, but I said, “No, you can’t! I’m gonna buy her someday!” LOL! 😛
I think this outfit is really cute!!
And so is this one!! I don’t like the headband, but everything else is adorable 🙂
Oh, gosh! This is also so much cuter in person!
I don’t really care for the colors of this outfit, but the detail is absolutely amazing!
I love Caroline 🙂 (and I need that dress! 😛 )
Her hair looks so pretty!!!
This outfit is just beautiful!
Another ADORABLE Bitty picture! 😀
This set up is really cute!
I LOVE this set!!! I was dying over everything about it! It’s adorable!
I really love this doll! She is so cute 🙂
The new Rainy Day Outfit is so cute! I just really want that coat, but I do not want to pay $24 for it 😛
Here’s me standing in front of Kaya’s section 🙂
Kaya’s Deerskin Outfit. It is actually cuter in person, too. I have just never paid much attention to her which, yes, it’s pretty sad 🙁
I LOVE her horses and her saddle!!
Kaya is so pretty! 😀
Kaya’s Pow Wow Dress of today. She looks so pretty in blue! I also love her tepee 🙂
Trying to find which doll looks perfect! Yep! I bought Kaya!!! 😀
After looking through practically EVERY Kaya doll (No joke!) I finally found the perfect one 😀
I had put too much in my bag, so I had to take some things out. Here’s me trying to decide which outfit to get over the other!
I was trying to decide between the Western Riding Outfit and the Weekend Fun Outfit! It was SO hard to decide!! I had planned to buy the Weekend Fun, but when I saw the Western Riding, I wanted to buy that because I was so sad when it wasn’t available anymore! It was a super hard choice to make, but I finally went with the Western Riding Outfit 🙂
Finally, I was ready to check out 😀
I’m going to give you a list of what I bought as I haven’t taken pictures of everything yet. 😉
1. Kaya Doll and Book
2. Steps High- I had to order her because she was back ordered, but at least I got free shipping 🙂
3. Sparks Flying
4. Frosty Fair Isle Outfit
5. Western Riding Outfit
6. Purple Peacock PJ’s for Kaya 😉
And my mom and dad also gave me two AG outfits!!
1. The Cozy Sweater Outfit (SOOO EXCITED!!)
2. Saige’s Sweater Outfit (YAY!!)
I’m SO happy with all of my stuff! And here are a couple more pictures of me and Kaya:
I opened her in the car and just about died! She is absolutely beautiful and her hair is AMAZINGLY soft! No other doll has hair as soft as hers!
I love her so much!!! 😀
When we pulled into our driveway I put Kaya back in her box, but I decided to be silly and become an American Girl Doll myself! LOL! 😛
Okay, now you all have to see this beautiful cookie cake that my mom made me!!
Look how pretty it is!!! I did not know my mom was so good at cake decorating!! Thank you for making me such a pretty cake, mommy 🙂
I had such a great birthday!! My mom made french toast, hash browns, and sausage for dinner (my FAVORITE breakfast!), then we sat around a bit, played Apples to Apples, and hung out some more! It was SO much fun!
And I want to thank you ALL for the birthday wishes! You’re so amazing and I’m so lucky to have friends like you! 🙂
Look for another post coming later today! 😀
Off To the American Girl Store!
New AG Historical Character??
Okay, just saw a link to this video on Facebook and it’s wondering if this new doll is going to be the new HC from the 50’s(I’m pretty sure her name is going to be Grace Thomas. AG trademarked that name 😉 )! Whatever doll it is, I think she’s ADORABLE!!! Okay, I’m dying over her cuteness right now! And a few of her outfits are really cute, too!
I have removed the video link, but you all may continue to share your opinions and thoughts of the new HC 🙂
Okay, tell me your thoughts!
You Named That My American Girl!
YAY! You gave this beautiful doll a name! All of the name suggestions were great and I thank you so much for submitting them!
But, a doll can only have one name and her name is……..
Thank you Ella, for submitting such a lovely name! 🙂
Thank you all who voted! This was SO much fun and I will be doing another one very soon 🙂
Elijah’s New Shirt
“Hey, everyone! My mom took me to the mall today and we looked in the Lego store!! I wanted a lot of the sets, but we didn’t buy anything. Anywaaaays, we also went in the Build-A-Bear Workshop store and I got a really cool shirt! My mom wanted to do a photoshoot of me, so here we go!”
“Isn’t that a cool shirt?? I really like the colors blue and green. I think they’re my favorite colors. But I also like red and black and gray and- oh, back to the photoshoot!”
“Another real cool thing is that it has a hood!”
“I think this is a cool picture, haha!” 😛
“Well’p that’s all! This shirt was $7.50, but mom had a coupon, so it was only like $2!! Bye for now!”
How do you like my new shirt?
Elijah (mom helped, too!)
Samantha Is RETURNING!
Oh, my GOSH! The rumors were true!! American Girl just announced it on their Facebook page:
“Time to celebrate, Samantha Parkington fans—your favorite is coming back this fall! Our Victorian-era character’s return is just one of the exciting changes to our historical line. Stay tuned for more details…”
I can hardly believe it!! I know what I’m saving up for next!! 😀
Also, they have said that there’s no news of Nellie’s return. A little disappointed about that, but oh well 🙂
Are you excited for Samantha’s return? Will you be buying her or any of her collection?
My American Girl Photo Album
When we purchased from American Girl in December we got a coupon for a FREE Shutterfly Photo book in an American Girl Design!! My mom just finished it last night and placed the order!

My Doll’s Valentine’s Day Party
Hi everyone! Happy (late) Valentine’s Day! I hope you all had a great day! 😀
I’m going to show you some pictures I took of my “kids” at their Valentine’s Day Party.
They all had such a fun time together! Every time I walked by the room I heard laughs and giggles! 🙂
“Have you tried the punch, Kanani? It’s really good!” Saige asked her sister.
“No, I haven’t. I’ll have to try some!” Kanani replied.
“Are you going to eat something, Samantha?” Kanani asked.
“Hmm.. I think I’m going to have a slice of that cookie cake!” Samantha said with a smile.
Annika, Marie-Grace, and Cecile were talking together in a corner and Addy went over to see what they were talking about.
“What are you three talking about?” Addy asked sweetly.
“We’re talking about all the amazing songs in Frozen and how we wish we could sing like them!” Marie-Grace replied. Them three are the singers in our family, so they talk about songs from movies a lot. 😉
However, Addy also likes the songs from Frozen, so she decided to join their conversation.
On the other side of the room, Eli started on his second cupcake and Lissie reached for a truffle, but got distracted by what Rebecca was asking Elijah.
“I just realized that I never asked you when your birthday was!” Rebecca said.
“You didn’t? It’s on November 5th.” Eli replied.
Josefina and Caroline were talking together and Kirsten made her way over to the table with a slice of iced lemon pound cake. Yum!
Everyone ate practically all day. Yes, I made an exception. After all, it’s a holiday! 🙂
Then they passed out handmade valentines. And at night they got in their jammies and watched Monster’s University.
They have all been talking about how much fun they had yesterday and how they wish they could do it all the time. I told them that it doesn’t have to be a holiday to have a good time together. It can be any day at all! Remember to enjoy your life with family and friends and make memories that will last forever 🙂
Did you and your dolls celebrate Valentine’s Day?
New AG Spring Release!
AAAAAAH!!! Okay, I just had to let out that excitement 😛
AG just came out with a whole new release and I am obsessing over everything! I’m going to show you a few of my favorite items, starting with Historical Characters 🙂
Kit’s Candy-Making Set- Oh, my gosh! That is one of the cutest sets AG has ever done! If it wasn’t $64, I would buy that!
Rebecca’s School Play Set- This is such a pretty costume! The colors are great on Rebecca! But, seriously, AG? Why is your favorite price $64 right now? 😕
Kaya’s Jingle Dress of Today- It’s. PINK! I love pink!! I am SOO happy to see new items for the Historicals! Especially for Kaya, since her collection is so small. And sadly, this is $64, too…
Caroline’s Hairstyling Set- SO CUTE!! If you go on the site and see this piece in her hair you will love it!! It’s $18 and I really think I’m going to buy it 🙂
Rebecca’s Hairstyling Set- A curling iron!! I really want this set, too! It’s $20, so I’ll have to think if I’m going to buy this or not 😉
Now on to the My American Girl stuff!
Rainy Day Outfit for Dolls- Well, the entire set is $58, which is just too much. So, I will probably buy the coat by itself for $24. The coat would probably be the thing I use most from this set anyways 😉
Happy Birthday Outfit and Accessories for Dolls- SO CUTE! I love the little present and the tiara! And since it’s almost my birthday, I think I should buy this, Hehe! The whole set is $48.
Dining Table and Accessories- This is actually really cute, but I like the chairs better without the cushions. The table and chairs are $95 and the accessories are $34.
Egg Decorating Set- OOOOH, my gosh!! How much cuter could this be?!? It’s $32, but it is SO cute that I think I might be buying this! I probably won’t have enough money to buy everything, but it’s still fun to dream, LOL! 🙂
Now let’s move on to the Bittys!
Twirly Tiered Dress for Dolls- This is such a sweet outfit! I really like the silver with the pink 🙂 This is $28.
Beach Chair- This is for the Bitty Twins, but I wonder if it would work with the 18″? It is really cute! This is $26.
Sun and Sand Play Set- This is absolutely adorable!! I LOVE the little floaties (or water wings, hehe!)!!! This set is $28.
Now there also a few new books that I like!
The Traveler’s Tricks: A Caroline Mystery and A Growing Suspicion: A Rebecca Mystery- These both sound really good! Don’t know if I’ll buy them, but I definitely wanna read them someday 🙂 They are each $6.95
Doll Photo Shoot- This is such a cute kit!!! I REALLY want this!! This is $21.99.
Be sure to check out everything new from AG HERE! And be sure to explore the site a little because not everything new is under the “New” tab 😉
What do you think of the new release?
