My Trip to The AG Store- 1/1/17

Hi guys! I had a great time at the AGP yesterday, and took a lot of pictures. I went with two of my friends, and the car ride was super fun (even though my dad was singing Let It Go :P)

*excuse the quality of the photos, please. As I’m sure you’ve heard from other bloggers, the lighting in the AG store isn’t very good.


This was my first time going to the AG store with my camera- so I felt a  little conscious as I walked around. I saw someone watching me take pictures, like “Wow, she still likes dolls?! Isn’t she a bit old for that?”

Yeah, I’m old, ok?

First picture of the day, in Downtown Chicago walking to the store.

Here she is, Gabriela McBride!! She is beautiful, but honestly I am mad that this is the FIRST African American GOTY and she’s not even new or original. They spent so long developing Grace Thomas’s and Lea Clark’s stories, why couldn’t they do that for Gabriela?
I’m in love with Melody’s hair.
Samantha looks like an angel ❤
My friend’s Josefina doll and the one in the store. (It took a while to get this photo because my friend’s Josie has loose limbs and I couldn’t stand her up.)
Brooke and Josie. (See what I mean? Josie looks like she’s keeling over and throwing up.)
Wow, Grace needs to eat more. It looks like Kit’s been starving her.
The Wellie Wishers are really cute! Willa’s my favorite.
Here’s a better photo of Gabby. They were doing a raffle to win a free doll! (I didn’t enter, though.)
Brooke and Brooke. (Is it just me, or does my Brooke look chubby?!)
O.o
The only reason I would buy this set is for the apples and the Uno game.
My friend and I couldn’t stop looking at this doll. She’s so pretty! ❤ I took wayyy too many photos of her.
“Who’s this weirdo?!”
#66 is also GORGEOUS. (even though she looks like she’s eating her chin in this pic.)
Sorry for that gross visual xD
LOOK AT ALL THOSE DOLLS O.o
Tacky green shirt… :3
Another picture of #44. She looks amazing in this.
Creepy doll bangs…(I told my other friend to buy them as a prank/present lol)
AHHHH IT LOOKS SO REAL ASDJFKL.
This coral skating dress is so cute.
 Anyone else mesmerized by her eyes?

Leaving the store! Here’s where I noticed that me & Brooke were kind of matching. Black shirts, colorful pants (mine were army green), and brown boots. 😛


I did buy something small at the AGP! I’ve been wanting it for a really long time.

At first I was devastated because I looked for it everywhere in the store and hadn’t seen it yet. When I checked the availability for it online, it said ‘not available in this location’. I refused to give up, and found it way in the back of the store by the AG restaurant.


REVIEW: STRIPED HOODIE FOR DOLLS

AAAAAAHHHHHHHH.
IT’S SO CUTE.
The sweater is really awesome quality, and it’s lined with fleece to keep my dolls warm.
Yeah, I changed Brooke. I thought this outfit would look better with the sweater.
i didnt want that to rhyme i swear xD

(my brother came in just as I’m typing this. He grabbed Brooke and flipped her in the air. Brooke fell facedown on the bed. Sigh….)

And she fell right after I took the picture, too.
The star on the back.
The hood!
it’s all good in the hood LOLOLOL
I have to say, I’m impressed. I thought the hood would look really bad, but it looks good-great, in fact! AND, there’s no weird slit!
 The sweater zips up like a real human one would. ❤
(we’re kinda matching again, haha.)

Overall, I would definitely recommend this sweater, and it’s well worth the price!


Did you go to Gabriela McBride’s debut? Did you buy anything?

Adios, mis amigas!

Oh, Hey There, 2017!

Hi! I WILL be at the American Girl store tokay for the new GOTY Gabriela Mcbride’s debut. I’m going to the CHICAGO LOCATION. 

Is anyone else going to the Chicago location today? Let me know- I’d love to meet some of you guys!!

HAPPY 2017🎉🎉🎉

Fresh Breeze, Fresh Start

I KNOW I’M BAD AT TITLES, OK.
Explanation: It was really cold outside when I took these pics, and the ‘fresh start’ refers to a new year. 🙂
I recently had a sleepover with my friend, and we went outside to take some photos of her Josefina doll. 

We just used our phones for the pictures, but they turned out really good!

Bloopers 😛
My friend’s little brother was helping us with this photoshoot- he was the one who put the scarf on Josie. XD


Happy New Year, everyone!!! You can visit my other blog for a new year’s post. #shamelessselfpromo

OK, Christmas is over people, it’s official.

And in the world of the AG fandom, we’re officially excited for the GOTY, the GOTY release on January 1st, and the sales, Sales, SALES!

I’m going out on a limb here and guessing you’re going to the AG store sometime soon, most likely in 2017.

I’ve been to the AG Place a few times, and when it is really, Really, REALLY Crowded, it can get stressful, and you can even get anxious to leave!  

And that should never, ever happen.  The AG store is an American girl fan’s DREAM!

So I thought about some tips and hacks to make you and you doll’s experience at the AG store a great one!

So let’s just get right into this post!

Before you go, you should…

Before you go to the AG store, it’s a great idea to have a plan.  I mean…

Guest Post: Too Young to Write?

I know I JUST posted something, but this post was too good to NOT reblog. I knew I had to do it “write” away. 😛 Okay, I’ll stop with the puns! Now read this post.

Reveries

Hello guys! Today we’re having another guest post. It was written by Miss Libby Beth, who … I just met. I mean, I feel like I just met her, but I kinda know her from YWP NaNoWriMo.

At least, I think I do … but I keep getting people mixed up. I even mix up ‘famous’ NaNo folks. I suppose that’s because I’m not on there often enough anymore to know who’s ‘famous’!? XD

Anyway, you can find her blog (The Author with an Allergy) here. Be sure to check it out for more posts like this one.

{Oh, and I added some comments in … just like this! Sorry, Libby. I’ll remove them if you want!}

I Thought It Was Punny…

Ruthie, the family’s eldest sister, sat in a corner of Rutvi’s room, clothed in layers of sweaters and vests, swaddled in a blanket drinking hot cocoa and reading a book.

She was enjoying the solitude of a chilly Saturday morning.

Yes, I emphasized was. She was enjoying… until Saige came along.

The redhead took one look at her sister’s outfit, shrieked,

covered her eyes,

and collapsed on the floor.


Ruthie bent over her, trying to figure out what had happened.

Finally Saige sat up, and Ruthie sighed in relief. “Saige! Are you ok?”
“You nearly gave me a heart attack, but yes.” She replied.
“What? Why?”
Saige shuddered. “Your…your outfit! It’s hideous! Those pants look like they’re from the 1700s!”
Ruthie crossed her arms over her chest. “It’s cold.”
Brooke plonked herself right next to her sisters. “I heard some commotion. What was that about?” Saige explained the situation. Brooke rolled her eyes. “I can’t believe I’m related to you-you’re both so dramatic. Honestly, Ruthie, Saige faints all the time.” Ruthie giggled then shook her head.
Brooke whispered something into Saige’s ear. “I think we both know the solution to this,” she continued after a while. “A makeover! We’ll get Ruthie in a cozy but cute outfit, all right?”
Then it was Ruthie’s turn to roll her eyes. ” You have got to be kitten me.” She said. As if on cue, Praline stalked into the room.
Suddenly, Rutvi picked up Pinkyfuzz the Monkey and tossed her at Ruthie.  
“Quit monkeying around!” She yelled.
But they couldn’t. Ruthie’s sisters watched as she  pulled her blanket around her again-

and started to read.
Without looking up, she said, “I really would, but my weekend’s all booked, ok?”
Brooke and Saige turned away, disheartened.
 

“It’s too bad that she has to bee so busy.” Saige commented. Brooke nodded.


A LITTLE WHILE LATER

“SAIGE! SAAAAAIGE! Do you know where my soccer ball is? I can’t find it!”
“No, but you can read my book if you’re bored! I think you’ll get a kick out of it!”
“Thanks…but even so, I wonder where it is…”
Brooke murmured. “Hey, I can look under my bed, where the rest of the Things Not Seen must be!” Brooke exclaimed, tucking her own book under her arm.
Saige answered, “Okay, hopefully you get Lucky & find it!”
“Thanks!”Brooke smiled, sprinting to her room.
“What are Sisters for?”

 EVEN LATER…
Ruthie walked into the living room, dragging Blossom the Bear behind her. “I’m so beary hungry.” She complained.
Brooke laughed. “I’d think you’d be, after all that reading. Orange you glad I made cookies?”Ruthie pumped her fist and went away to find them.


*COUGH* *COUGH* *COUGH*
Saige rode in on Gingersnap, wheezing. “What’s wrong??” Brooke asked, alarmed. “I’m not feeling so good, and my voice is kind of horse. I thought riding Gingie might help.” Brooke replied, “Aww, okay. Hope you feel butter.” As she spread the very same stuff on her toast.
But suddenly…all the dolls looked up as Rutvi cleared her throat. In her hand, she held a fistful of grapes.

“You guys have made a bunch of corny puns today, and you’re not that grape at it.”
She griped. “Okay, we’ll stop now.” Saige coughed, holding back laughter. “Only if you post these pictures, though.” Rutvi relented, and walked away to find her computer. “Thanks for being so undersitting!” Brooke called. “Under…what?” “We would say understanding, but you’re sitting. Soooo…”
Rutvi shot a warning look at her dolls before continuing her post, but laughed inside all the same.


Whiskers on Kittens & Warm Woolen Mittens- an AGPS

The first snow of the season has finally arrived! Here are some pictures of Brooke braving the cold with her loyal feline friend, Praline.

🎶raindrops on roses…whiskers on kittens…bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens…🎶

I love The Sound of Music! ❤

Yes, it was snowing as I was taking these photos. And yes, Brooke fell.

 

 

Here she is after she fell. FROM A HEIGHT.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m semi-obsessed with headshots of Brooke.
Byeeee!
