Bitty Baby

Photos From The Past

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 :)

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
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 πŸ˜‰ 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

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
I took this photo of Beth around Christmas time. I think she looks so precious :)

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
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 πŸ˜‰

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
I played Little House on The Prairie/country a LOT when I was little. Here we have Felicity and Addy doing some mending πŸ˜‰

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
Kirsten making some eggs :) (OH MY GOSH HER HAIR!!! :O )

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
Josefina tending to the baby :)

TOSHIBA Exif JPEG
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 πŸ˜‰

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?

Amazing Thrift Store Find!!!

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!

image

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 πŸ˜›

image

The chair is so adorable and I love the roomy desk area!

image
On this side, it has two drawers that open and close, as well as a little closet/cabinet.

image

The door to the closet/cabinet has a mirror inside and four shelves. This is a great piece of furniture for storing things! πŸ˜€

image
The bed pulls out and the mattress unfolds to fit on the bed. It can also be pushed in, and the mattress velcros closed to make a seat :)

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 πŸ˜€

What do you think of Mia’s Bedroom Furniture?

Family Photo :)

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! πŸ˜›

image

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 πŸ˜‰

Who is in your American Girl Doll family?

New Summer Items!

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! πŸ˜€

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 :)

Summer_Outfit

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 πŸ˜‰ This set is selling for $52 OR you could buy just the outfit for $28 and the Tote Set for $24 :)

Beach_Chair

Beach Chair Set- This is adorable!! I LOVE the food!! πŸ˜€
This is selling for $48

Bitty_Swim

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_Shade

Beach Sun Shade- What a cute idea! I love this! :)
The price of this is $TOOMUCH.MONEY LOL! πŸ˜›
This is $38 πŸ˜‰

So, what do you all think of this release? Will there be more coming out soon or is this it?

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!

image

Online, Isabelle’s Bar & Beam looks kinda big, but it’s actually pretty small! Which I guess it has to be, LOL! πŸ˜›

image

Isabelle’s Pajamas and her cat. I think Isabelle is so much cuter in person!

image

I love this outfit!! Pictures don’t it justice!

image

LOOVE THIS SET!! Why is it $64??? UGH! πŸ˜• πŸ˜›

image

Pretty Isabelle :)

image

That tutu is cute!

image

Pretty birthday display :) (I love the doll on the right!)

image

Look! It’s Annika!! She looks so pretty!! πŸ˜€

image

Okay, can I just say ADORBS?!?!

image

I LOVE this doll and outfit!!! πŸ˜€

image

This is just such an amazing display!! Can you see all the tiny Easter eggs??

image

SO CUTE!!!

image

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! πŸ˜€

image

Just look at how cute that is! :)

image

I love Isabelle’s Coral Sweater :)

image

That is such an adorable hairstyle! I should’ve studied it more πŸ˜•

image

Those two look like they’re having a lot fun :)

image

A cute classroom display :)

image

The other side has the Gala Party Scene! I need to get that someday πŸ˜‰

image

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…

image

Julie’s Car is amazing! I think that the doors should open, though πŸ˜›

image

So pretty!! My mom said she’s gonna buy Julie, but I said, “No, you can’t! I’m gonna buy her someday!” LOL! πŸ˜›

image

I think this outfit is really cute!!

image

And so is this one!! I don’t like the headband, but everything else is adorable :)

image

Oh, gosh! This is also so much cuter in person!

image

I don’t really care for the colors of this outfit, but the detail is absolutely amazing!

image

I love Caroline :) (and I need that dress! πŸ˜› )

image

Her hair looks so pretty!!!

image

This outfit is just beautiful!

image

Another ADORABLE Bitty picture! πŸ˜€

image

This set up is really cute!

image

I LOVE this set!!! I was dying over everything about it! It’s adorable!

image

I really love this doll! She is so cute :)

image

The new Rainy Day Outfit is so cute! I just really want that coat, but I do not want to pay $24 for it πŸ˜›

image

Here’s me standing in front of Kaya’s section :)

image

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 :(

image

I LOVE her horses and her saddle!!

image

Kaya is so pretty! πŸ˜€

image

Kaya’s Pow Wow Dress of today. She looks so pretty in blue! I also love her tepee :)

image

Trying to find which doll looks perfect! Yep! I bought Kaya!!! πŸ˜€

image

After looking through practically EVERY Kaya doll (No joke!) I finally found the perfect one πŸ˜€

image

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!

image

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 :)

image

Finally, I was ready to check out πŸ˜€

I’m going to give you a list of what I bought as I haven’t taken pictures of everything yet. πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

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:

image

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!

image

I love her so much!!! πŸ˜€

image

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! πŸ˜›

Okay, now you all have to see this beautiful cookie cake that my mom made me!!

image

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! πŸ˜€

New AG Spring Release!

AAAAAAH!!! Okay, I just had to let out that excitement πŸ˜›
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 :)

F9445_main_2

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!

F9450_main_2

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? πŸ˜•

F9452_main_2

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…

F9457_main_2

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 :)

F9496_main_2

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 πŸ˜‰
Now on to the My American Girl stuff!

F8028set_main_2

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 πŸ˜‰

F9174set_main_2

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.

F7956set_main_2

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.

F8148_main_2

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!

F9262_main_2

Twirly Tiered Dress for Dolls- This is such a sweet outfit! I really like the silver with the pink :) This is $28.

F9322_main_2

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.

F9336_main_2

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!

F8242_main_2Β F8299_main_2

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

F8288_main_2

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 AGΒ  HERE! And be sure to explore the site a little because not everything new is under the “New” tab πŸ˜‰

What do you think of the new release?
