One year ago today I started my blog. Time goes by so quickly! I still remember that day as if it was yesterday. I was super excited to finally have a blog and I couldn’t wait to do my first photostory! When I look at posts from the very beginning and then look at the ones from now, it makes me so happy to see how far I’ve come! I did not expect to have so many readers and commenters and I get so happy when I get comments saying things like, “I love your blog!” “I check your blog everyday!” “You are so good at photostories!” It’s comments like those that inspire me to keep going! Without all of you LHOAG would not be where it’s at today! Thank you all SO much! You’re all such amazing friends! 🙂
My blog is so important to me and I love doing it! You may or may not know, but about 2 weeks ago we thought that my blog had been deleted. We couldn’t visit it. Every time we tried it said the website could not be found. Immediately my mom started to do some research and see what was going on. After a while we read that once a blog is deleted, it can’t be brought back. That means EVERYTHING I’ve done would be lost!! I was crying so much. I really believed that my blog was gone and that all of my photostories, pictures, everything was gone. If you had seen me crying you would’ve thought that I just heard someone died. But after hours of being worried and crying, we finally found the problem! It was our router and all we had to do was unplug it and plug it back in. I was overcome with joy!! I was so relieved and happy that my blog was still out there! I thank God that everything turned out alright 🙂
I have some big plans for this year on my blog! One of them is on my Contact Form! You can now attach 3 pictures to your emails for me to post on “Tell Us Tuesday!” It’s basically the same thing as From A Friend Friday on AGFan- send in a maximum of three(3) pictures with a description. You can start sending in photos now! I will post them on Tuesday 😉
Now, I thought it would be fun to show you my stats!
I currently have:
And for the grand finish-
You are all so awesome!!! Thank you for all of your comments! I LOVE reading them!! 🙂
This is not the last post of the day, look for a GIVEAWAY coming up soon!
Hello everyone! It’s me, Annika and I’m here to tell you something that happened just this morning…
It was quite a normal day. I was reading a book, Elijah was watching a show, and Samantha was just about to start cleaning (as she always does).
“Eli! What are you doing?” Samantha asked with a disgusted look.
“Whadd’ya mean? I’m watching Spongebob!” Eli replied, he thought it was pretty obvious.
“Look how you’re sitting!! You look disgusting!! Can’t you sit the right way?” Samantha asked.
“But I’m comfortable!” Elijah protested. He looked over at me and I could tell that Samantha was annoying him.
“Eli, why don’t you actually sit in the chair instead of slouching your entire body in it?” I said and nodded my head “yes” so he would know that I wasn’t teaming up with her, but just trying to make her calm down. With a sigh, Eli changed his position…
But his feet were still on the table. Samantha looked at me and pointed to his feet. “It’s okay, Samantha.” I said and she started cleaning.
After a little while I thought I heard a strange yelp. “What was that?” I asked. “Hm. I dunno! Probably one of the neighbor’s dogs.” Eli replied.
Then Kaya walked in the room saying, “Come on, it’s okay! Good boy!”
It was a little puppy!! Oh, what a sweet face!
Me and Elijah got up immediately, but Samantha didn’t even notice that a dog was in our bedroom. “Kaya, where did this dog come from?” I asked.
“When I went outside to get the mail I saw him just walking in the street. He was all alone, so I brought him inside with me.” Kaya explained. Oh dear! A stray dog with no collar!! Mommy was not gonna be happy.
“Kaya, you can’t just bring a stray dog into our house!” I was going to say more, but then the little puppy walked over to us and Eli started petting him. Uh-oh! He can’t start bonding with him!
“Elijah, stop petting him! He probably won’t be staying and if you bond with him it will be even harder to leave him.” I tried to explain, but he just continued petting and talking to the puppy.
By now, Samantha had noticed a dog was in here. “Oh, my gosh!! Kaya what did you do?! We can’t have a dog!! I need to get mommy!” Samantha said. She freaks out a lot 😉
Then he looked up at me with those adorable little puppy eyes. How could I not pet him? He was one of the cutest dogs I had ever seen! “Aww, good boy!” I said as he licked my hand.
“Eli, you know mommy probably won’t let him stay, right?” I said.
“Why not?” Eli asked.
“Because we already have a kitten, two horses, and two foals. Plus there’s all of us she has provide for. It would be a lot to take in a puppy.” I explained.
“All right, what’s this Samantha tells me about a pupp-” Mommy paused when she saw us with the puppy. We all waited for her to speak. “Kaya, you can’t bring in a stra-” She paused again as she looked at his face.
“Eli, I know how much you want a dog, but- well-” She sighed. “I’m gonna go get a box.” Mommy said.
“What for?” We asked in unison.
“For the puppy. He’s gonna need a bed to sleep in.” She replied with a smile. Apparently she couldn’t resist his face either!
Eli couldn’t be happier!! He finally had his own dog! Pepper is the perfect dog for him! 🙂
Yep! I got Pepper and the Pet Hiking Set when they went on sale on Jill’s Steals & Deals for about $12 or $15!! I have wanted him for awhile and I’m very happy to have him! He is my first AG Pet 🙂
Do your dolls have any pets?
Well, this is pretty exciting! I’ve never done a Throwback Thursday before, but today I really felt like doing one!
This was my table at my first craft fair in May of 2010. I only knew how to make beanies and ruffled hats. I wasn’t even making bonnets yet!
And this is my table at the last craft fair I did in December of 2013. Now I have mostly outfits and costumes! I think it is so neat to see how far I have come in my crocheting. I can’t wait for my next craft fair in May! I’m sure Anna and Elsa will be a huge hit! 🙂
Now it’s question time!
How did you like this post? Would you like to see more Throwback Thursdays?
WOW! I am SO shocked that this happened, but we have a 3 way TIE!!
Obviously she has to have just one name. Do you know what this means? We have to have another voting! Please DO NOT vote for more than ONE name. When you do that I can’t count either of them. That is the main reason we have a tie 😉 So please take your time deciding. You have to be absolutely sure of what name you like best for her. Just pretend that you are getting this doll. You wouldn’t give her two names, right? You’d have to choose one perfect name 🙂
Okay, here are the names:
And….. VOTE AWAY! 😀
The last day to vote is Friday the 21st.
I can’t wait to see who will win!
I’m sure you are all wondering what “Bokehful” is, so let me explain that real quick.
Bokehful is an App that I have on my iPod. You open a picture and you just tap or swipe across a certain area and hearts or dots or any of the other shapes they have, will appear! It just makes some pictures look so pretty and fun! I used Bokehful on the last picture, so you will be able to see what it is 😉
Saige just looked SO pretty that I had to do a photoshoot of her! She is wearing her Sweater Outfit, but without the sweater. It was too hot for that 😉
She looks so sweet in this picture!!
These sandals are just so CUTE! I want them in me size! 😀
I brushed her hair out, but I didn’t curl it! It looked really pretty just like this 🙂
Her beautiful blue ring. I think this picture came out so cool!!
I LOVE these black and white pictures!! 😀
I absolutely LOVE Saige!! She literally has to be one of the prettiest dolls AG has ever made! I’ve been giving her a lot of attention this week 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot!
Which picture is your favorite?
My dolls are gonna have their little party today and Saige wanted to show you how everything looked before it started 😉
They are gonna eat sliced green apples, cucumbers, and celery sticks! I helped Saige make the place mats, napkins, and napkin holders this morning 🙂
“I hope you all have a great day today! Oh, and one more thing…”
“If you’re not wearing green today, then I pinch you! Hahahaha! Just kidding! Bye for now!”
