Hi everyone! Recently I was going through some old pictures I took from like 2009-ish, and I thought it would be fun to show you all
First off, this is a picture of all my stuffed animals (at that time) set up on my floor as Spirit preached to them about the Prodigal Son. I called it Beanie Church 😉 Oh, and you see that little white goat down there that’s tied up? Yeah… He’s bad so he had to be tied up to keep him from going crazy. Kinda funny that his name is Fred the Friendly Goat, isn’t it? XD
I took this photo of Beth around Christmas time. I think she looks so precious
O_O Did that really used to be all I had? I can’t even remember what that was like! XD Oh, just an FYI for those who don’t know, but Addy and Josefina are my sister’s dolls 😉
I played Little House on The Prairie/country a LOT when I was little. Here we have Felicity and Addy doing some mending 😉
Kirsten making some eggs (OH MY GOSH HER HAIR!!! :O )
Josefina tending to the baby
This was another time when I was playing “real life”. Felicity, Addy, and Caleb are all playing with cars on this mat I had, while Kirsten, Kendra, and Josefina play with their dolls
Beth looking all sweet
And for a bonus, this is a picture of my room after I cleaned it all up. It looks so different now. O_O I’ll have to show you guys what my room looks like now sometime 😉
Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a stroll through memory lane with me! I love having these pictures to look back to
Do you have photos of things you used to play when you were little?
I was having a heart-attack last night (not literal, I was just SUPER excited)!!! My dad was asleep in the other room and I was trying SO hard not to yell and scream over everything!! LOL! 😛
***Note: Picture credit goes to American Girl***
Okay, so are you all ready to see this awesome release?! Good! Let’s get started! 😀
Rebecca’s Seashore Set $48- I’m sorry, but I don’t really like this. It looks way too modern to me, and those boots literally look like boots that girls wear today. I will say that the chair is cute, though
Alrighty, ready to move into MAG? Me too!!
Shimmer & Lace Party Dress $30- This is SO CUTE!! I love the color and how lacy it is! 😀
Pretty Pink Tutu Set $28- Again, it’s cute, but I won’t be buying either of them You can also buy both of them in a set together for $62 😉
Sunshine Gardening Bench Set $68- This is adorable!! It made me realize that I don’t have a doll that likes gardening yet! Hmm…. I wonder what doll I want could fit that role…. 😛
Now onto the Bitty Babies!
Now for books!
Doll Pets $24.99- THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!! I love this!! 😀
Alright, so that was the entire release (except for the girl’s sized clothes 😉 )!! I am VERY happy with this release!! And A LOT of new items have gone on my wishlist!! I think my favorite item in this release is Samantha’s Gazebo. I can not get over how amazing that is! 😀
What are your thoughts on the release? What was your favorite new item?
P.S. SO sad that Josefina got NOTHING new
Sometime last week, my mom and I went to the thrift store just to see if they had anything doll-ish there. We checked the back first, where they have stuffed animals and sometimes dolls, but didn’t find anything interesting. Then we went to the front to look at the dolls that are behind the counter- we found an Our Generation Doll and a Bitty Baby!! We were going to buy the Our Generation Doll, but realized that it wasn’t that much cheaper than buying it from Target, so we passed on her (but yes, we did buy the Bitty Baby!). As we were looking around, still trying to find an AG doll, I looked down and saw………
Mia’s Bedroom Furniture!!!!!!! I nearly had a heart-attack!!! Unfortunately, it was $99.99. Too much money for us to spend.
But, when we bought the Bitty Baby, they gave us a coupon for 50% off anything that was only good to use Tuesday or Wednesday. So on Tuesday we went and I was hoping that the furniture would still be there! This time we went straight to the counter and there it was. I told my mom that I could put around $30 towards it, that way she would end up only spending $20- it was a deal!
So here it is!! We bought it for only $50!!! Mia’s Bedroom Furniture was originally sold from American Girl for $125 and included the chair, mattress, and pillow. All is included, except for the pillow. We also looked it up on eBay just to see how much it was selling for- I could easily sell it for around $300, but I’m keeping it 😛
The chair is so adorable and I love the roomy desk area!
The door to the closet/cabinet has a mirror inside and four shelves. This is a great piece of furniture for storing things! 😀
I have always loved this set and thought it would be such a neat thing to have, so I am VERY happy to have this!! I had a lot of work to do on it, but I am very happy with the way it turned out. I will be posting more photos of it all new and clean tomorrow and pictures of the Bitty Baby will be coming soon as well 😀
What do you think of Mia’s Bedroom Furniture?
I’ve noticed a few blogs have been taking family photos of their dolls, and I’ve always wanted to do that, but because I have so many, it would take HOURS to get them all ready, so I never did it. But- it is time to stop being lazy, LOL! 😛
Back row, left to right- Addy, Josefina, Felicity, Kirsten, Rebecca, Kanani, Marie-Grace, Caroline, and Saige.
Bottom row, left to right- Beth, Annika, Kendra, Cecile, Caleb, Samantha, Jeremy, Kaya, Mickey, Jess, Minnie, Clara, and Janie
I took a family photo of all of my AG dolls (including my sisters) on Saturday and I think it turned out great! It was so neat to see them all set up together I was going to do a family photo that included everyone in my doll family, which would include MyTwinn, Disney Toddler Dolls, and other baby dolls, but I didn’t have room anywhere to get a picture of all of them! So maybe some day I’ll get a family picture of my non-AG dolls 😉
Who is in your American Girl Doll family?
So, this morning I went on the AG website and I saw that they had new items. Of course, my heart started pounding immediately from excitement! 😀
But to my surprise, it didn’t feel like a whole new release as there are only a few new items. Let’s take a looksie
Sunny Isle Outfit and Tote Set- Okay, I love the hat, like the shirt, and don’t like the shorts. A little too printed for me 😉 This set is selling for $52 OR you could buy just the outfit for $28 and the Tote Set for $24
Beach Chair Set- This is adorable!! I LOVE the food!! 😀
This is selling for $48
Sunny and Sweet Swimsuit- Oh, doesn’t she look adorable?! I love the ruffles on the swimsuit and the big floppy sunhat!
This is sold for $26
Beach Snack Set- AWWW!! That food is SO CUTE!! Look at the little banana and the oranges!! And I adore that coconut cup!
This is sold for $20
Beach Sun Shade- What a cute idea! I love this!
The price of this is $TOOMUCH.MONEY LOL! 😛
This is $38 😉
So, what do you all think of this release? Will there be more coming out soon or is this it?

What AG dolls do you have?
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! 😕 😛
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
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! 😀
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?
Around Christmas time my friend, Emma went to the AG store with her BFF to get Saige and she was kind enough to send in pictures from her trip! So, here is Emma:
Saige’s adorable painting set, and her sweater outfit which I got.
Cute scene, but her pigtails look really funky!
I love these!:(
Her skates and muffs are sooo cute! I got them and they are well worth the money. Actually, I think they aren’t very pricy for all that it has. (Jaclynn here! This is a very cute set! Much better in person )
Sorry that it’s blurry! They look so sweet, though! (Oh, I LOVE this pic!)
I LOVE Caroline’s coat!
I love this scene. (Me TOO! 😀 )
I LOVE THIS DOLL!!!!
I lovelovelove this! (So CUTE!)
I want one in ME size!
Oh my gosh. This is too cute for words. (Awww!!)
Hope you liked them! We had a great time…and I got my beee-utiful Saige!
Thank you SO much for sharing with us, Emma! Your pictures were great!
Look out for another guest post coming soon!
Have you ever been to an AG store?
