How do your dolls celebrate their birthdays? And are your dolls your “daughters”, because I pretend that mine are my adopted girls! 🙂

You’re An American Girl Fan If….

Image

You find yourself spending way to much time watching AGSMs on AGtube. (and you know what those abbreviations mean!)

Image

“I have to clean my Room” really translates to “I have to pick up, and re-organize all of my AG clothes!”

Image

You are constantly on the look out for Doll sized items…and I mean constantly! 🙂

Image

You probably have a collection of way too many American Girl doll catalogs, and you are proud of the fact that you have the ‘January’ issues of when the GOTY’s came out! 😉

 102_2450102_2449

You freak out when someone gives you or you find original American Girl catalogs (or anything that is “old” AG! haha) . And you might be freaking out right now realizing that I have the AG catolog of when Kit was introduced! (Thanks to my sis!)  🙂

102_2445

If you can crochet or sew, you typically use this talent for making AG clothes and accessories!! 🙂

102_2452

Most of the books that you own are American Girl doll books.

102_2454

You have played almost every single game on the AG website! 

102_2455

You have memorized every GOTY and their years, and You know every single HC charterer. 

102_2456

You cry every time they retire an AG doll! 😦

102_2453

 

And lastly, you typically don’t have money to spend because it’s in your American Girl doll savings, because you are always trying to save up for “one more doll” 🙂 Or it’s gone because you just blew it at the AG place, or you just made a big AG order.

And a bonus…. You know what:

GOTY, HC, MAG, AG, AGSM, AGPS,AGtube,(etc).. mean. And you use this “Language” with your family members and they look at you like “Huh!?”

Yeah…you’re an American Girl fan..or maybe an American Girl Geek! 🙂

Casual Chic Outfit Review!

So yesterday when I got home from music lessons, I was so happy and surprised to see that my AG package had arrived! I wasn’t expecting it to come until Wednesday-Friday! Instead of telling my mom about my lessons, I went straight to opening my package! It is my FIRST item i have ever bought straight from AG! Most I have gotten off of Ebay, Etsy, or a friend has an old outfit she has given me. I am thrilled with my purchase. So lets get on to the REVIEW! 😀

My AG

Brave

So it comes with the BRAVE charm, it is really cute. And I hope to get a MY AG doll someday (soon) and then I can use her necklace! 🙂

Shoes

The shoes are SO cute! But like every AG outfit, they are very difficult to get on! But they are really sturdy, and they would be really great for traveling in, because they won’t come off easily, like other shoes. i wasn’t sure about them, when I saw them online, but as soon as I pulled them out  of the box, I was in love! They are now my favorite shoes!

Pants!

The pants are super cute! They are made from corduroy, and are pretty soft! 🙂 Where it Velcros it looks like  how real pants close! The back of them have elastic, so they are really easy to get on, and they look great on Felicity, and i think they would go well on any doll!

Sweater!

So the main part, and possibly the reason every girl wants this outfit! It is SO cute! The detail AG has put into it is incredible! So it doesn’t have any velcro on the back, like I thought. It slips over the head. The three little buttons on the front, REALLY WORK! Although I won’t be using them often, just because I don’t want to wear them out! 🙂 

Polka dot sleeves!

Also, I thought that the polka dots were screened on, but they are knitted in! That is so awesome! Great job American Girl! 🙂back

Here is the back, nothing too special. Except the hood, and it fits the dolls head really well!

La Hat!

And also, the HAT!! And let me say Oh My goodness, you haven’t experienced American Girl doll cuteness unless you have seen this hat! It is really well made, very high quality! 

La hat #2

It fits my dolls really well, and it will go with a lot of other outfits. Again I wasn’t 100% sure how I would like the hat, but it’s one of my favorite parts. The little buttons on the sides just make it perfect! The material is really sturdy, and I feel life it’ll last a long time.

 

GET IT!

 

It was really funny, as soon as I pulled the My AG box out of the shipping box, my mom was like “Wow!” and then when I opened it and lifted the tissue paper my mom told my dad “Well, you get what you pay for!” and you REALLY do! I HIGHLY recommend this outfit, it is on sale NOW for a limited time while supplies last, for 50% off! ($17 plus shipping) If you are thinking about getting it, GET IT! It is the cutest outfit I have seen from AG in a while. You won’t be sorry that you bought it. I give it a 10 out of 10, and it is well deserved! It is really good quality, and you and your doll will be happy if you get it! Hurry, IDK how much longer it’ll be around!! I Love this outfit SO much!! 🙂

I hope you liked my review, when ever I make another AG purchase I can do another, if you all want? I hope this review helped! 🙂

Have a great day!

The American Girl Story: Episode One

Dear Diary,

Since this is my first time writing in you, I feel like I should introduce myself. My name is Marie Merriam, I am 15 years old.My mom is a doctor. I live in Utah. And something incredible has happened to me! So awhile back I tried out for the Seattle Art Institute, and I have been waiting for what seems like forever to get a letter that let’s me know if I got in! What’s my talent?? I want to be an actress! I take acting lessons at my community theater. so what was so incredible that happened to me? Well, I have to tell it from the beginning, which starts last Friday, and it was valentines day!

 

Image

I Got home from my acting class at 7 pm. As usual. I noticed a note on the door it said:

Image

Since it was Friday night, I knew I could stay up for her. I went to my room to check on my dog, Coco.

Image

Image

And we decided to go to the living room and watch TV, the only thing that was on was an award show celebrating Dollywoods most  rememberable dolls of the year!  I thought it would be fun, since I am a BIG fan of Parson Sisters!! And they were one of the featured celebrities, because they both won awards! Quinn, won an award for best Musical Roll Model! And McKenzie got an Award for Best Actress! They are both so incredible, why am I talking so much about them? Well, you’ll see! I just have to show you some photos from the award show!

Image

This is Quinn. She is a very amazing singer! I have all her albums!

And here are some pics of her incredible dress! I wish I could wear it!! 🙂

ImageImageImageImage

And This is her sister, McKenzie…

ImageImageImage

And this is them together,

Image

Oh my gosh! I would LOVE to have Quinn’s hair! 🙂 

Theinterveiwer asked them what they would be up to next, and they said that they are going home, and spending time with their family! “I wish I was their family” I thought!

So I was watching the awards show, and it just ended,my mom came in. And before she hugged me she handed me a red envelope addressed to me!! 

Image

“hun, this arrived for you earlier today! I couldn’t wait to give it to you!” Mom said.

Image

I WAS EXCEPTED!!!!!! but they spelled my name wrong! 😦

Image

I gave mom a big hug, we were both screaming, and laughing, and crying! It didn’t dawn on me, till now, that I would have to leave her.

Image

“Mom, I am going to have to leave.” I said, with tears in my eyes.

“Yes, but you will be back for holidays, and I will most certainly visit you!!” she said cheerfully! “Besides, this is the start of your dreams coming true. and we aren’t going to let it bring us down!” she added.

“But where will I stay? it said in the letter that all the dorms are filled.” I asked her.

“Don’t worry, I have that figured out too. I have never met her, but I have a sister who lives in Seattle. And she said that she would be more than happy to have you stay with their family.”

“What!? Really? But I didn’t even know you had a sister.” I said

“Well things weren’t good between us. Till now. She is starting to write me more. But there is something you need to know.”

“What?” I asked, almost not wanting to know, it was the way my mom said it that frightened me.

“They have two daughters, their names are, Quinn and McKenzie. Or as you know them, the Parson Sisters!”

I couldn’t believe, did my mom just tell me that the Parson sisters, are my cousins!?!?!?! I had so many emotions running through my mind!!! 

“Mom! I have to go shopping, get some really cute clothes. i have to be fashionable for them!” I siad.

“Honey, you leave in two days. We will have to go shopping tomorrow. And pack Tomorrow. That’s a lot to do!”

“I know, but I am going to one of the biggest art schools in the country, and staying with some of the biggest stars in the world! I have to look my best!”

“Alright,we’ll go shopping!”

Image

“ugh, so much to pack!” I said.

Image

I plopped down on my bed, and my mom came in and gave me a present.

Image

Image

*gasp* “A cell phone??”

“Well, the scool will be providing you with a laptop, but I thought you should have your own cell phone so you can call me anytime!” she said.

Then she finished helping me pack, I knew that I was leaving the next morning, so I enjoyed every moment i was spending with my mom.

I have to go, But I will write soon. and finish the story, and then update you with my latest news!

Till next time!
