I hope you enjoyed getting to know me better and that you have a great day! 🙂
Wow. You are a lot like me! I hope to one day, by some random fluke, run into each other at the LA American Girl store! I’ll hopefully be going there on October 18th. 😀
Oh, that’s so cool that we’re alike! That would be really fun to meet in person! I usually go twice a year, but it’ll probably be just once next year in May. We’ll see, though 🙂
I love New Zealand! My aunt, uncle, and cousins lives there. I recently visited and stayed at there house for half a month, and then we rented a van and drove around to see the sights another half of the month. It’s amazing there, and there was sheep EVERYWHERE! Seriously, you couldn’t go for 30 min without seeing some sheep.
Ooooh, that is so neat!!! You’re very lucky to get to visit there 🙂
I don’t live near the AG store in LA, but I’d love to go there someday and meet both of you! 😀
That would be amazing! 😀
I’m a lot like you too, Jaclynn! I’m such a procrastinator, I love pink and purple, I love old TV shows (I watched 3 episodes of Little House on the Prairie today!!)….and so much more! Donuts, journals, dolls, and friends/family are awesome! And I’ve never been to Starbucks (GASP) but my family is going to try to go there for breakfast soon because we have gift cards. 😉
Oh, YAY! We are a lot alike! 😀
Oh, my! No Starbucks??? You must go soon! If you aren’t allowed to have coffee (because of the caffeine), but still want a coffee flavor, get the Decaf Coffee Frappuccino with Whip Cream (if you like that 😉 )! I get it ALL the time and it’s SO good! 😀
Ooh, awesome! 😀 Thanks for the recommendation!
You’re welcome! 😀
Two thumbs up for Lord of the Rings!!! 😀
YESSSS!!! I’m a Lord of the Rings lover too! And I was homeschooled all my life (it’s super awesome!!) but this year I’m going to a traditional school. And what’s funny is that I will be using mostly the same books as I would for homeschool. But as my mom always says, “child by child, year by year.” And she says if I think this school is right for me, then I stay. If not then I can go back to homeschool. 🙂 I’m pretty excited though. 😉
YAAAY!!! LOL! 😀
Oh, wow! I’ll pray for you as you adapt to that change in your life. I hope it’ll all go well, but as your mom said, you can always go back to homeschooling 🙂
That’s good that you’re excited, though! 🙂
Omg :O We have a TON in common. I love little house on the prairie! Although I like the books better. I wish they made the show exactly like the books. I think that Mr Edwards looks more like Pa in the books.
😉 And I love cold weather! Where I live, Summers are tooo hot. We could cook donuts on the asphalt if we took the notion!
With Much Love,
That’s so cool that we have a lot in common! LOL! Oh, I personally like the show better, but the books are really good, too 🙂
Laumonzo – LOVE it! 😀
Oh my goodness! That IS hot! LOLOL! XD
It is very hot here 🙂 We make the Coke business go up! 😉 The show is pretty good, I will say that. Although Nellie is just.. *cough* a trifle bit on my nerves. xD
Or! LaurManzo. Or AlAura? o-o heh… we will never know 😛
Also, I HAVE been to starbucks, but only once or twice :c I like my own coffee 😉 French Vanilla= perfect.
With Much Love,
i love i love Lucy and andy griffith!
Yeah, those shows are great! 😀
I love Andy Griffith! Barney is like the funniest/dorkiest TV character ever! Lol, and I love I love Lucy! My favorite episode is the one where they are in Paris and the girls want special designer dresses… I don’t know the name! ( do you know the one I’m talking about?)
Yes, donuts are the best dessert, next to ice cream cake, maybe. Haha!
Learning German sounds hard. I had a friend who lived in Germany for a year or so, and she knew some German. It always sounded kinda like she was gargling, LOLOLOLOL!
LOLOL! I know, right?! We’re now in the season where he’s not in it anymore and I’m SO sad!! It just isn’t the same without Fearless Fife 🙁 ;D
Oh, yeah!! I LOVE that one!! The name of it escapes me at the moment, but yeah, I totally know which one that is! 😀
Yeah, German is REALLY hard and confusing, but I still have a lot of learning it! LOLOLOLOL!!! I know EXACTLY what you mean! XD
Yeah, I don’t exactly like the new deputy as much as Barney, but he is pretty funny.
My fav part of that episode is where the girls are like, ‘ omg, that was so embarrassing!! And then the famous designer shows up the next day wearing the same thing!’ So funny.
Then I admire you for persevering with German- that says a lot about you. How do you say hello in German?
Yeah, I actually didn’t like him LOL! But there were a couple funny things that he did 🙂
Yes! That part is great! XD I just love when Lucy is on her hunger strike LOL!
Awe, thank you! Well, one way to say it is “Hallo!” But you can also say “Guten Tag!” which is “Good Day!” I think there’s another proper way to say hello, but I can’t remember at the moment…. Guten Tag might be the proper way. I’d go get my notebook, but I have to stay in this room to keep an eye on Ella 😉 There are so many different ways to say things. There’s proper and improper, masculine and feminine, the same word that means something different/pronounced differently – it’s crazy! 😛
I don’t have stage fright, but that’s probably because I have been dancing in recitals since I was 2 or 3 (I’m 10 and a half now). Although, if I have to read something in front of my class (homeroom or advanced level reading) I get really nervous, even though it’s usually with a group, and last year in 4th grade, I was friends with almost everybody in that class, and two of my VERY best friends were in that class.
I like Dunkin Donuts better because I don’t like coffee and the nearest one is like, 45 minutes away, across from my neurology clinic. I also like the show Scrubs, and I can watch it because my mommy says I am mature enough, but I can’t watch it in front of my 7 yr old brother. I also like the Big Bang Theory (show) and my favorite scientist is Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Sorry for talking so long!
Hey there! I did ballroom dancing for 6 years (and while I loved it all, Cha Cha, Rumba, Waltz, and Tango were my favorite). I love purple, teal, and blue, OUAT is one of my favorite TV show, and I as well have a leather jacket obsession. I tend to procrastinate, I have crocheted since I was 7, and, while I don’t like coffee itself, I love Starbucks for their Double Chocolate Chip Frap (with a shot of peppermint).
If I’d have kept up with my doll obsession as a teenager, or had access to website building, I’d like to hope that I’d have had a wonderful website like this one. As it is, I am back into dolls now, and couldn’t be happier. (My bf, TechGuy, even supports this “habit”)
Oh my gosh, that’s amazing! Every time I watch movies like Pride&Prejudice or Sense&Sensibility, I just die over the dances! They’re beautiful 🙂
Yes! It’s so nice to know another Oncer 😉
Awe, you’re so sweet! Thank you for the compliment 🙂
That’s great that you got back into dolls! I always love when that happens 🙂
Which Pride and Prejudice are you watching? My favorite is the BBC version (6 hours, but so good!)
I think I may want to create an Emma and Hook set of dolls… I have the red jacket already. Have fun at the MaryEllen Debut.
I watch both the movie withe Keira Knightley and the BBC version! I like the movie because I feel it’s more well made, but I also like the BBC version because it has so much more to the story 🙂
Oh. My. Gosh. That is such an amazing idea!! If/when you ever make them, please send me pictures! 😀
Thank you! 🙂
Do tell us a few of your nicknames! *sits back and kicks legs up on table* We’ve got time. LOL!
LOLOL! Okay, here’s a few of them:
Fluff Bucket of Fluff
Jaclynn Packlynn Pumpkin Patch
Aaaandd I’ll stop there! LOLOL! 😀 XD
Hahaha! I have a bunch of nicknames too, XD, though usually everyone calls me ‘Madi’. 🙂
More! More! My nickname rhymes w/that, can you guess what it is?
Hmm… No I can’t guess! What is it? 😉
My brother is learning German! I do French myself though. Almost every Saturday my family eats homemade pizza while watching Andy Griffith. We love that show! What is your favorite episode?
Oh, that is so cool! I love learning German and would also like to learn French sometime 🙂
Awe, how fun! I’m not sure what my favorite episode is, but I really like the one where Goober joins the marines, Citizen’s Arrest, any episode about Opie, and also practically every episode about Barney. He’s so hilarious LOL!
French is really hard because they don’t really pronounce the ends of the words so you don’t know if it’s plural or not.
I love the one where Gomer joins the Marines! It was so funny when he snag with the bucket on his head! I think Gomer is better than Goober. Have you ever watched Return to Mayberry? I haven’t but I really want to. It’s about when Andy comes back to Mayberry 20 years later and everybody is old and stuff! I hope I can watch it soon!
Wow! This is a long comment, but if you are like me, I am sure you wont mind. 🙂
Oh, yeah. I’ve heard French is really hard to learn. German is pretty tough, too, but I still enjoy it 🙂
Oh, my gosh, I know!!! Now I wanna watch that episode! LOL! I like Gomer a lot more than Goober, too 🙂 No, I haven’t, but I’ve heard of it! I think my dad watched it once. We haven’t seen all the seasons yet, so we will probably watch it after that 😀
LOL! Nah, it’s fine. I don’t mind long comments 🙂
DEEEE!!!! I WANNA TALK!!!!!!XD
LOLOL!! We just were! You said you had to go! XD
I have a question. How do you make blogs? Like how do you make the websites? I wanna make my own.
There are many different blogging platforms to use. There’s WordPress, Blogspot, Blogger, etc. All three of those are free to use as well 🙂
I use WordPress and it is super easy! Just go to wordpress.com and it will take you through all the steps from creating an account to getting your blog made. If you have anymore questions don’t hesitate to ask 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂
By the way, did you have to pay for anything?
To make the blog? Yes, I did just because I wanted my theme to be completely customizable and I have to pay for my blog name monthly, but you don’t have to do it that way. You can do it all completely free 🙂
We have a lot in common!
Let’s see….I love dolls (I wouldn’t be on this blog if I didn’t), I love to sing, I love acting but I also have stage fright (even though it’s not very bad), I’m also a majorly huge Disney fanatic, the things I love usually turn into large collections, I want to be a published author, donuts are amazing, Starbucks is amazing, Frozen is awesome, I love pink and purple (but especially purple),TSUM TSUMS ARE LITERALLY MY ENTIRE LIFE (I even have a whole Instagram account dedicated to them, it’s @tsumtsumsforever if you’re interested), I want to go to London and Paris (and also Disneyland because I’ve never been there, I’ve only been to Disney World), I love little kids, Han, BB-8, R2-D2, and Yoda are the best, and yes, BB-8 is the cuuuuutest. I have recently became obsessed with him. 😉 R2 was always my favorite, but now I’m not so sure….and I’m sure after I see The Force Awakens in a couple weeks I’m just going to be even more obsessed with BB-8.
Yeah. We really do have a lot in common. 🙂
Oh my goodness! We do have a TON in common! And I’m gonna have to check out your Instagram account because I am obsessed with Tsums! 😀
Thanks for commenting, Annie! 🙂
P.S. R2 used to be my favorite, too, but man, BB-8!!! 😀
So, back in December I said we had a lot in common, and we still have all of that in common….but now we have something else in common.
AND THAT THING IS THAT I SERIOUSLY LOVE ONCE UPON A TIME. I watched the first three seasons in less than a week, which is seriously a record for me because it usually takes me a longer to get through three seasons. I finished the fourth season the week after, and then I started to watch the fifth but Emma as the Dark One was a little hard for me to watch at times. I took a break from it for a couple weeks and on Saturday I started watching it again….I was caught up on everything by Monday afternoon. 😉 I also totally ship Rumbelle and most definitely Outlaw Queen. OUTLAW QUEEN IS LITERALLY MY FAVORITE AND I DON’T KNOW WHY I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Captain Swan is also great, but I don’t love them as much as Outlaw Queen and Rumbelle.
And also BB-8 is the cutest thing ever. I am currently going through a BB-8 obsession that has been going on since late December. He’s just too adorable to handle. 🙂
OH MY GOSH!!! YAAAY!!!!
OUAT is SO GOOD!! I totally understand about Emma being the Dark One. This season is very dark and some of it is disturbing. I was glad when I found out that she wasn’t being completely bad, though! And thank goodness she isn’t the Dark One anymore 🙂
YES OUTLAW QUEEN!!!! It makes me SO happy to see Regina happy! They’re just so cute together and AGH!! *dies*
Yeah, Rumbelle is amazing. I just feel so bad for Belle. And isn’t Robert Carlyle (the guy who plays Rumple) an amazing actor?! He’s so good at acting as so many different people and it’s just amazing! He can make you feel so bad for him when he’s in trouble even though he deserves it. I have such a love/hate thing going on with him XD
Oh, my goodness. Little BB-8. <3 XD
I know, OUAT is AMAZING!! I had already fallen in love with it after seeing the first two episodes. And then I was totally hooked on it (and still am, honestly). 😉 It was nice to learn that Emma wasn’t being completely bad, and I was so happy when she wasn’t the Dark One anymore.
YES OUTLAW QUEEN IS SO CUTE!!!! *also dies* I also really do love seeing Regina so happy, she’s changed so much since the beginning of the show and I love that.
I feel bad for Belle a lot, too. I actually really like her for some reason, I’m not exactly sure why though! Robert Carlyle is an amazing actor, he really is good at acting as many different people! And I totally agree with the love/hate thing with him right now. Sometimes he’s great, but other times I can get really mad at him. XD
BB-8 is my favorite. <3
Yeah, I love looking back at how much Regina has changed. I still love the flashbacks of her being evil, though! Gotta love the Evil Queen! XD
I love Belle, too! Her accent is so amazing! 😀
Yeah, like right now I’m mad at him, but I still feel bad for him, too! UGH! That naughty Rumple XD
Yes. *heart eyes* XD
