2 Years Ago Today…..
…. I started this blog!! Yep, today is my 2 year blogiversary!!! It is crazy for me to think that 2 years have already passed. It feels like I just started my blog and I got my first few comments and posted the video on how to curl Saige’s hair. Time certainly flies!
I would just like to take a moment to thank each of you for being such amazing friends and loyal readers of my blog! You all mean so much to me and I thank God for you all each day. I wish I could meet you all in real life because you’re all just the sweetest, nicest girls! 🙂
So many new blogs have started since I entered the blogging world, and yet so many have left. Whenever I see a blog leave, it just makes me want to cry. I know I am not the best at posting regularly and I know that TUT pretty much failed because I was so forgetful about it, but I really want you all to know, that I am trying very hard to be more responsible and organized with my blog and I really hope that by the end of the year, I along with all of you, will see a change in that area.
My blog is such a huge part of my life and I just love making posts! Even though you might not see me post for a week, I still absolutely love making posts and I will be posting for many years to come! I know I will never grow out of dolls and it’s so crazy and exciting for me to think of what my posts will be like when I’m 40! I hope that my posts will remain just as fun and entertaining for you all as the years go by 🙂
Now for a couple little announcements!
1. I am starting something called “A Few of My Favorite Reads”. So at the end of each week, I will share some of my favorite posts that I read during the week on other girl’s blogs.
2. I’m starting another thing called “PIC of The Month”- PIC stands for- Play, Imagine, Create. This will be posted monthly and it will be a super random story with my dolls where a few things won’t make sense. It’ll be really fun!
3. I am having a……. GIVEAWAY TODAY!! I’ll be giving away an outfit/costume that I crocheted, so be sure to check back later this afternoon! 😀
I hope you have a great day!! 😀
Interview With The Stars of The Crown Reclaimed
Join us for an interview with the stars of The Crown Reclaimed! I will type in this color, Kiara will answer in blue, Jenna will answer in red, and Riven-Delle will answer in pink.
Question #1- What was your reaction when you first got the role of playing Allie/Monica/Corinne?
I was SO excited! I had auditioned to play Allie, but I saw a lot of other girls there auditioning and I just got so nervous and I didn’t think I would get the part, but then they told me “You got it!” And I was like- YAY!
Okay, please don’t think this is weird, but I actually was like one hundred percent sure that I would get the job, so it wasn’t really a surprise for me, but I was still super excited and I just couldn’t wait to begin!
I felt really nervous, actually. I had auditioned just to try it out, but I did NOT think I would actually get the job. So when they told me that I was going to play Monica, I just froze and said, “Wait, what?” I was overwhelmed with excitement and shock and for a brief moment I was like, “Should I tell them I changed my mind?” But I didn’t and when I met the rest of the cast, I just knew that it was meant to be that I get the job because if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have made all of these wonderful friends.
Question #2- How do you get along with the rest of the cast?
Oh, my goodness, I just love them so much! Riven-Delle and Jenna are just awesome. They’re so sweet and we have had a blast filming this together.
I don’t even know where to begin! Kiara and Jenna are two of the most amazing people you could ever hope to meet. We have all shared so many laughs and tears together and I am just so thankful that we all made such good friends.
We all get along so great, it’s been a real pleasure getting to know them. Our friendship has grown so much since the first day. We’ve all been so supportive and we’ve just always been there for each other. It was really hard filming the last few scenes because we knew that it was all going to be over and we don’t even know if there’s gonna be a third movie, so saying goodbye was really hard.
Question #3- If there is to be a third “movie”, what would you hope/expect to happen?
Well, I would want Allie to get reunited with her dad. I can’t tell you how upset I was when I found that she doesn’t get reunited with her dad, I was like “This is not acceptable! I protest!” Of course I wasn’t serious, but I AM really sad that they didn’t get reunited.
I don’t really know if there’s something I would hope to happen, except for Allie and her dad being reunited, but as for expecting, I don’t really that know that either. Corinne obviously got what she wanted, she’s an agent at a detective’s agency and that’s great, so yeah, I’m not so sure. Maybe Corinne could turn bad again or something…
Oh, they just need to be reunited! I don’t even have to say the names because I know everyone knows who I’m talking about. That ending was just terribly awesome. I mean, leaving everyone clueless as to what happened that’s so rude, but cool and I just loved the ending, but I also really didn’t like it. And um, I do know that the director is considering making another “movie”, but she isn’t entirely sure, so that’s why she ended this one that way so that it leaves an opening for a new one in case she gets an idea for a sequel.
Last question! Do you feel like your character was in any way like you?
Oh, yes! Totally! Allie is like literally me! Like everything about us is the same, except I’m a little more happy than she is. But yeah, we’re like the same person and I think that may be why I got the role of playing her.
No, not at all! Corinne is way too like, tough and focused, and I’m just not that way. We are both extremely opposite!
No, me and Monica are so different. Like we’re both quiet, but Monica is quiet because she’s a detective so she’s very concentrated and she’s got a lot of things on her mind. But I’m quiet because that’s just the way I am 🙂
Thank you all for your answers! We really enjoyed hearing what you had to say!
That concludes this posting day! I hope you enjoyed it! 😀
The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 10~ The GRAND FINALE
“Ugh! There’s nothing here!” Corinne said in frustration. We’d been looking for hours, and so far there was no mention of me in any of the books.
“Just keep looking! There has to be something here.” I said, not wanting to give up.
“Hey! I found something!” Monica exclaimed from a nearby desk.
“What is it?” I asked as Corinne and I rushed over.
“It’s the royal family line! I found Josh and his wife, Angela and under them it says, baby girl, but no name.” Monica pointed out. “Well, now I have my answer, so let’s get back to the palace!” I said, and we left.
“Stewardess! I have the answer to your question.” I said, bursting into the throne room.
“Please, leave. Before you waste both of our times.”
“My mother, Princess Angela, gave me no name when I was born! My name is Allie, and I will say it once again, I’m the rightful heir to the throne! Back away, now!” I said forcefully.
She stared at me for a moment, a look of disgust on her face. Then she stood.
“Your throne, Your Highness.” She said in a fake kind voice.
Slowly, I walked over and took my seat on the throne, Monica and Corinne smiling on.
The days turned into months, and I found myself thinking a lot about my father. I wondered what happened to him, and if he was safe. I realized how much I longed to see him again, so I called Uriah into the room.
“Yes, Your Highness?” She asked when she stepped in the room.
“I need you to get a message to Agent Corinne for me, please.” I said. If I was going to find my father, I needed Corinne to assist me. I was going to do whatever it takes to see my father again….
*In our world*
“Agent, this letter just came for you.” A man said.
Corinne read the note and a smile spread across her face. “Get me my hat! I’ve got a new case that requires immediate attention.” She called out and ran out the door to fulfill Allie’s requests.
*pant, pant, pant*
“GET THAT MAN!” “Where’d he go?” “Let’s check over this way!”
STAY TUNED! Check back in one hour for an interview with the stars of TDH Season 2: The Crown Reclaimed!
The Disappearing Heirs Season 2~ The Crown Reclaimed: Part 9
To my surprise, many of the people believed I was the lost princess, and the next morning, several of them turned out in front of the palace yelling “We want Allie!” “Give us our rightful queen!” “Allie! Allie!”
“Stewardess, you see who the people want! Don’t you want to give them who they are asking for?” I shouted, so she could hear me over the people’s loud voices.
The stewardess looked on at the people, her eyes wide. She clearly didn’t know how to respond to this.
“I am who they want! And that is because I’m the rightful heir to the throne!” I said, pointing my hand to the crowd.
“I don’t care who they want! You have no proof that you are the lost princess!” The stewardess shouted back.
“Actually, I do. You do know about the royal birthmark, don’t you?” I asked.
“Yes, of course! What of it?” She asked, sticking her nose into the air.
I climbed up the wall and pulled my hair out of the way. “Look at my neck.” I told her, and when she did, her eyes grew wide again.
“This is ridiculous! It doesn’t mean anything! You could have just put a mark on your neck!” She yelled.
“You’ll have to do something far greater in order for me to believe you are the princess. Tell me what your name was when you born!” She demanded.
I froze. I hadn’t even known I was given a name when I was born! The only name I’d ever known was, Allie.
“Ah ha! I knew you weren’t the princess!” She yelled and walked away.
I slowly turned my head to the crowd. “Why wouldn’t Josh have told me my real name?” I wondered.
Corinne and Monica looked at me, their faces bewildered.
I came down and asked, “Corinne, do you remember my dad saying anything about my real name?”
“No, I don’t think he mentioned it.” She replied.
“I thought so.” I sighed.
“Well, maybe he doesn’t even know! Maybe your mother died before she had a chance to tell him!” Monica suggested.
“Yeah, that would make sense. My mom died shortly after I was born and my dad wasn’t home.” I said. Then I looked around for Adella. “I’m gonna see if Adella knows anything about my real name.” I said.
“Adella, do you know what name I was given when I was born?” I inquired.
“No, I’m afraid not. But perhaps you could check the library! There are many books in there about the kingdom’s history that I bet even the stewardess doesn’t know about.” Adella suggested with a smile.
“Oh, that’s perfect! Thank you so much!” I said and Corinne, Monica, and I headed for the library.
That concludes this part! Look for the GRAND FINALE coming next!! 😀
