Guys….. I’m 18.
Yep, you read that right. The 14 year old girl who started a doll blog is 18 today and still happily blogging with her dolls.
It’s been so weird lately thinking that I’m gonna be 18 – that’s when you’re considered an adult! So this is very strange for me. I don’t feel like I should be 18, but I am, and in a way – I can feel that I am. It’s just super strange. XD
It’s also been scary thinking that I’m gonna be an adult now. I know things won’t flip like a switch and the adult thing will be a process, but it is kinda scary thinking of the responsibility and everything. It is exciting, though, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for my future! 😀
I had planned to do a birthday photoshoot today, but I got really distracted this morning and need to get ready to go out with my mom, so I’ll leave you with this picture of the lovely Jocelyn – the doll who looks most like me 🙂
Thank you all for being my friends, for encouraging me, being a huge support and motivation, for just being awesome and sticking with me for all these years! I’m so grateful to have you all as my friends! <3
100 FOLLOWERS & Jordan’s Birthday!
*jaw drops* *gasps* OH MY GOSH!!!! I REACHED 100 FOLLOWERS THIS MORNING!!! :O
I can’t even begin to thank you all enough! Reaching 100 followers has been something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and now it’s finally happened – I don’t even really know what to do now! XD
You all are such huge supporters of this blog and many of you are my good friends – THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! *virtual hugs*
I feel like I’ve made a lot of speeches lately, thanking you all for being awesome and for following my blog, so I can’t really think of anything to say besides – Thank you. You have no idea how much this means to me and how excited I am about this! Your comments, prayers, support, everything, means the world to me and it’s why I’m still here today, so thank you for that 🙂
A giveaway will be coming this June sometime to celebrate, so be on the watch for that 😉
Now, on another note, today is Jordan’s 23rd birthday! I’m sure you all know Jordan, I’ve talked about him a lot on here, but in case you don’t, he’s my awesome older brother 🙂
(I obviously didn’t know where to look in this pic XD)
Jordan, you are amazing. I’ve probably told you that a million times before, but it’s true.
(that’s Jacob, my oldest brother, photobombing a lovely picture – oh well XD )
You’re such a loving, caring brother, and I thank God each day for you. You are always so natural with everyone you’re around, and I think that’s why so many people love you – you’re just yourself and that makes others more comfortable to be themselves, too.
(Ugh, my hair XD)
Your humor and energy has turned so many of my days into happy ones. Like the other day when you stole my phone and we were running and laughing all around the house (wait – that was yesterday, wasn’t it? XD ) – that was the start to a great day for me. You literally have made so many of my days great and turned me into a happy, fun mood.
And, Jordan, I can’t tell you how happy I am that you found your true love (she’s the one to the left of Jordan, in case you didn’t know 😉 And that’s my sister Jen on the far left, and Jacob next to her). Seeing you happy with someone, makes me so happy and excited for you. You’re getting married in like – a little over 4 months!! That’s crazy to me… I’m gonna miss you so, so much, but now I’ll look forward to your visits and enjoy the time you’re here 🙂
You have a good heart and I know you will be a great husband to Aaryn and an awesome dad to your future kids. I love you, Jordan. Don’t ever change.
Happy Birthday! 😀
A Birthday Wish~ A Photoshoot
Hi there!! 😀
Sooo…. How many of you know what today is? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! I am 17 years old today! Isn’t that crazy and weird? XD
So the plan for today is that we’re gonna eat lunch and then my mom and I are going clothes shopping! We’ll come back and celebrate with a Star Wars themed birthday (I’ll probably be posting pics of the decorations and stuff later) and instead of a cake we’re going to stack up some Krispy Kreme donuts and have those. So yeah, I’m really excited!! 😀
Now, let’s move on to the photoshoot, shall we? 🙂
Does Kiara look adorable or what? I love her hair 🙂
I love the lighting on this one 🙂
And this is probably my absolute favorite!! I just love the closeup on my camera 😀
Well, I gotta go now! My Grandpa (AKA Papa) is here for my birthday as well 🙂
Donuts or cake?
Happy Birthday To An Awesome Brother!
Today is my older brother, Jordan’s 22nd birthday!! 😀
Jordan is seriously awesome! I’m so thankful for the great relationship we have and I pray that it will never weaken! Jordan is super crazy, absolutely hilarious, and makes the best faces. He is also so sweet, loving, and caring. He also gives awesome “Jub hugs” as me and my mom call them!
I have so many great memories with Jordan. From being so bored that we are just lying around in the living room watching weird PBS Kids shows, just waiting for Word Girl to come on (we loved that show!), also me wanting to play with him and he drops on the floor saying “I am paralyzed” and me having to drag him (literally!) around the house. We have chased each other around the house, slamming doors to get away, and played several LEGO video games together. Jordan has always made me die laughing. He sleeps in the craziest positions on the couch and lip sings to songs so dramatically! XD
Aside from being super crazy and hilarious, Jordan is also super caring. He loves to give hugs and he’s always there to make me smile (even when I’ve been mad at him. I can never be mad at him any longer than a minute cause he just makes me laugh!). He’s always been himself everywhere he goes and he loves the Lord!
Thank you, Jordan, for being such an amazing brother! Happy Birthday!! 😀
My Birthday Haul~ 2015
Hey everyone! Thank you all so much again for all of your birthday wishes! I had a really nice day and I got some great stuff!! So I’m gonna show you what I got (remember, I’m not bragging at all. I just know that a lot of peeps like to see hauls, and I wanna show you cause I’m excited 🙂 )!! 😀 Oh, and there are some non-AG things mentioned in this post, too 😉
Two of the things I got are the Birthday Accessories (sorry if I’m wrong about names. I really cant remember what these are called 😛 ) and the Birthday Outfit! And oh, my goodness, I can’t believe I’ve had Saige for 2 years! It seems like she JUST came out!
Here’s the front of the birthday card. Coconut is so adorable!
And here’s the inside of the card 🙂
It actually opens! So you can actually put little things in there! 😀 Oh, and sorry about my pants in the picture LOL! 😛
The little bracelet is really cute, too!
I am so in love with this crown!!! I’m gonna be using this a lot, I’m sure!! 😀
These shoes are ADORABLE!! I love the little rhinestones!! 😀
The skirt is really cute, but I’m bummed with how short it is.. Eeks. It says happy birthday all over it and has pretty flowers 🙂
I love the birthday cake on this shirt!! 😀
The sleeves are super cute, too! 🙂
Oh! And here are the stick-on earrings! Aren’t they cute?? 😀
I haven’t opened them all yet, but they all have pieces that are great for mix and matching 😀
This was my favorite of the OG outfits! I love the colors of it! 😀
The shoes looked way too big to me at first, and when I compared them to AG shoes, I wasn’t sure they were gonna fit properly, but surprisingly, they fit perfectly!
This purse is SO cute!! I love it!!
Here’s a closeup of the pretty, ruffly vest and you can see the brown belt included, too 🙂
My complaint with this outfit is that the sleeve ripped. So now I’m rolling up the sleeves so it isn’t noticeable 😛
I LOVE this bow!! It’s SO pretty!! I know I’ll be using this A LOT! 😀
I got the Bruno Tsum Tsum!!! Isn’t he ADORABLE?! 😀
I was so loving the sky outside!! 😀
Okay, so I also got a caramel leather jacket with a grey hood, a black duster jacket, a white ruffly tank top, a shirt that says “Warning: I know all the words to Frozen and I will sing them to you.”, some money, and ONE other BIG thing that I am saving to show you for another post! PLUS there’s the other big thing that I bought which is coming on Wednesday!! EEEEK!! I can’t WAIT to show you these two things!!! 😀
Have a nice day! 😀

Fun In The Sun with Friends Photoshoot
So, on the day I got Clara I went over my friend Emma’s house so we could play with our new dolls and stuff. While I was there I took some pictures of Clara and of Emma’s dolls!
Isn’t she SOO adorable in this outfit?!
Clara is just too CUTE!
She’s “Queen” of the Rock! LOL 😛
“I know you don’t like walking on rocks, but this is a cute picture spot, Clara!” 🙂
My friend, Emma had enough money to buy 2 dolls! She got MAG #33 who she named Sloane and she also got Isabelle! Oh, my, I love Isabelle 🙂
Striking a silly pose 😛
Clara and Isabelle pose for a picture, too 🙂
Best friends forever <3

My American Girl Shopping List For May
So, I will be going to the AG Store again in May with my friend Emma for her birthday shopping spree and I have been trying to figure out what I’m going to buy. I finally got it all planned out and I thought it’d be fun to show you my shopping list!
Weekend Fun Outfit- $30
Easy Breezy Outfit- $28
Rainy Day Coat- $24
Plaid Party Dress- $30
And last, but not least-
The MAG with Layered black-brown hair and brown eyes!!! I decided it would be cheaper to get a doll that looks very similar to Jess, than finding a Jess online somewhere. Now, you’re all probably wondering what I’m going to name her, well I am naming her…….
ARWEN!! I’m not exactly naming her after Arwen in LOTR, but just because I think it really suits her. 🙂 I’m not sure what her middle name will be just yet, any suggestions?
So, my total is $222.00 (plus I should try to have a little extra 😉 )!!! I hope I can do it!
What do you think of my shopping list?
P.S. Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to enter to win my One Year Blogiversary Giveaway! If you haven’t entered yet, there’s still time!
Also, if you’d like to send in a picture(s) for Tell Us Tuesday please get them in soon. Send them to me using my Contact Form. Please remember to include a description. Your picture has to be 2MB or smaller. It won’t let you send in pictures that are bigger than 2MB 😉
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! 😀
