Sorry this is late but things have been crazy around here I have been lucky for the internet to work long enough to post this. I think it was interference from the hurricanes and a solar flare the sun sent us combined that has been messing with the internet. So I am not going to have much to talk about on this post just what we did on Saturday, September 9, 2017. We had a picnic and walked the trails at our Weir Dam it was fun and peaceful. We have some pictures we took when we did our walk. This is all I really have to post about because it has been really hard for me to get on the internet. We also have more people here in our little city because of the hurricanes they opened the camp grounds at the race track for hurricane evacuees to stay. I hope everyone has stayed safe and we are saying prayers for everyone affected by the hurricanes. Just a heads up I am going to cancel everything for this week and start fresh on Sunday.

Sorry I haven’t posted the weekly blog for last week, the COM or FFM but we have had issues with the internet and the only things that were post were the posts I had scheduled. Hopefully the kinks are worked out of the internet now but I’m not sure. We are going to just say they are cancelled and I will post a few things in here as to our adventures last week. We went to the park Friday and I took some pictures of our fun. I am behind the camera so I’m not in any of the pictures. The mini doll we took with us is Apple Jack (AJ) she will go on some adventures with and so will some of the others also Ponies and some Barbie’s too. We all had a blast Dad, KayKay, Bubba, AJ and myself. Here are the pictures I took.

We did not have anything for the FFM and I am not going to be posting a COM for this month. We also didn’t get any votes for the FW for last week. I am going to start doing in store reports for 18″ doll items. This will be starting at the end or middle of September and will be once a month. It will be called ISR standing for In Store Report. I will go to stores like Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby, Tuesday Mornings, Kohl’s, Toys-R-Us, and other stores near me. Sometimes the items will just be doll sizes items not really made for 18″ dolls but can be used for them. The ISR may also replace the FFM but not sure just yet. The book for September will be or October as well because it is taking longer to read. So I will talk a little about it in September BOM and finish talking about it and let you know my opinion in October’s BOM. Please don’t forget to vote for our FW, please vote for the WYL, and please answer the WQ. I hope everyone is well and this is all for now. As always we love you all and have a blessed day.

Ok yes I know it is Thursday not Saturday but I am having to do the WB early this week because the race is in town this weekend and the internet will be hard to access during this time because of all the extra people here. So if I miss something this week I am sorry but I will put it in the next WB.

 

First here is the winner of this weeks FW it is Anthony he looked so handsome in the outfit that everyone said hands down it was him.

Here are a few new things from AG. 1. The new Boy body book. 2. A few leaked items. 3. Nanea’s grocery store leaked.

AGI made a craft I had requested a few days ago. Sadly I’m not in the shout outs but I can’t wait til I get some printer ink so I can make this craft for our dolls. Here is the link to the craft:
http://www.americangirlideas.com/diy-american-girl-lol-surprise-doll-blind-bags/
Let me know if you try it and what you think of it?

AGI also done another craft I had been wanting to make but just don’t have the space for it right now and I love her version of it. Here is the link to the craft:
http://www.americangirlideas.com/diy-american-girl-dollhouse-science-lab-classroom/
Do you like this craft? Let me know in the comments.

I got this info from AmericanGirlNew.com.

We have been busy with our first full week for KayKay being back in school. KayKay has open house at her school on Tuesday I have pre-scheduled the BOM post to go up and I am half way through this months book and will probably finish this week. AJ starts the 10th grade on Monday. That sentence made me feel old. LOL.
Now for the winner of FW. This week we had a few confusing votes because a few of you combined the names of the dolls when placing your votes. A few of you only liked the post and didn’t vote. Please remember to comment which doll you vote for or I will not know and please make sure you type the correct name so that I don’t get confused as to who you are voting for.

Thanks and the winner is Snowy.

I hope I didn’t sound harsh and if I did I don’t mean too. Also can you please comment on the BOM, ROM, and COM I would like to know your input and if you enjoy the posts. I am going to start doing a Weekly Question (WQ) post and I will put it up on Sundays starting tomorrow. Please comment to it I would really like to get to know all of our Fans/Followers. Below is a revised schedule. Thank you all and that is all for this week. As always we love you all and your support and have a blessed day.

Here are a few things I have found this week:

This is the American girl press release.
http://news.mattel.com/news/american-girl-debuts-custom-doll-and-apparel-making-experience-with-never-before-released-options-and-over-one-million-design-combinations

I found more info on the new Create-Your-Own line.

http://lissieandlilly.blogspot.com/2017/07/create-your-own-custom-american-girl.html?m=1

My fellow Blogger Small Dolls in a Big World posted this and I can’t wait to find out more about the new GOTY for 2018.

http://smalldollsinabigworld.com/new-releases/goty-2018-luciana-release-day-tee-leaked/
Some BIG news was discovered today!
Instagram user Poppets and Posies has found a release day tee on Ebay for the Girl of the Year 2018: Luciana Vega!
There have been several rumors floating around that the next GOTY is interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM. The author of  GOTY 2018 has written several books/series with characters interested in STEM as well. This shirt tops the cake. Luciana’s character/storyline will be connected to outer space in some way, whether this be through astronomy, or space travel. You can really tell that even though the graphic is a heart, it’s not super GIRLY, like most AG clothing. I hope this means that her collection will be focused more on STEM projects and such.
The name Luciana originated in Europe, or more specifically Rome. It is a popular name in Spain and Italy. I wouldn’t be surprised if part of Luciana’s family used to live in Europe!
I felt as if this was a little early to be finding clothing items for the next GOTY, but we actually have found very little so far compared to years before. I’m excited to see what leaks the future holds.

More info from a different blogger about GOTY 2018

http://poppetsandposies.blogspot.com/
Who is Luciana? Where is she from? What will be her themes, stories, and adventures? Her wardrobe and accessories?

Could this tee be for Luciana?

In favor for it being Luciana’s tee is that the building facades look like the old style “Spanish” facades from places like San Antonio. The stars, while an American Girl nod to their own logo, also point toward this tee depicting Texas which often uses the star in its logos and themes.

Two big states for space industry are Florida and Texas, but considering we recently have Maryellen from Florida, having Luciana’s story set in Texas makes a whole lot of sense!

Finally, with a big thank you to “dollsbetweenus”–Luciana is Spanish origin and means “light of the moon.” How perfect! It all seems to fit together that perhaps is Luciana is not only of Hispanic and/or Spanish heritage and that she loves space, space travel, astronomy–but that her story takes place in a state where Spanish and Hispanic culture is so integral to its history.
Luciana Vega. Space theme. 2018.

The author of the GOTY 2018 books is Erin Teagan, a children’s book author who holds a masters degree in science (unspecified) and has worked in a biochemistry lab.

On our side of thing here at home in Tennessee we have been getting ready for school to start back and it starts on Tuesday August 1. I cant believe how early they start beck now. Ok so this week we had to go get KayKay’s school laptop ( it’s her first year with it ) and was only supposed to take 90 minutes, but ended up taking us a little over 3 hours from start to finish. She also now has a school issued backpack for the laptop so no new backpack for school this year. When we get some new school items I will post pictures.

On the American Girl side of things I am a little upset with the way I get catalogs from them. I have to constantly request the catalog and when I did at the beginning of June when I was seeing the new one on different blogs with the cover that had the Create-Your-Own cover and the one I received was for March 2017 issue. then I sent them an e-mail about it and they sent me a July 2017 catalog but it is different then the one I was hoping to get. I will post pictures but I still have not received the newest Create-Your Own catalog and I don’t understand why I keep having to request them. Does anyone else have these problems? Should I send another e-mail to AG? Let me know your thoughts on these 2 questions. I also want to request everyone comment on our FW blogs to vote because I am no longer getting votes.

I want to request that anyone that prays to pray for my cousin he is very sick and in the hospital. He had just lost his wife and then he all of a sudden got very sick. His blood pressure and tempeture keeps going high then really low and they are not sure exactly what it is. Last thing for this week is there was no votes for FW so I don’t have a winner. I will talk to you all soon and hope everyone has a blessed day.

 

Here are the pictures of the catalogs I received.

7-15-17 Hi everyone. I hope you have all been doing ok. We had to change things around this time for the WB because we went on vacation to go camping. We had so much fun and I am sorry this is later than I had originally planned but we ended up staying an extra night on our trip and then when we got back the internet started acting up. Well even after all that we still got to post so that’s a good thing. So our camping trip was so much fun. When I say camping I mean no electronics and a natural except a little boom box, tents, flashlights and propane grill. We had a 12 person tent for the 4 of us to share, and a shower tent that we use as and outhouse. We ate hot dogs, hamburgers, and smores. The guys chopped wood for our fire and KayKay fished, she caught a few sticks but no fish. KayKay made a fire pit for the dolls that looked like ours. She also got to feed ducks. I hope you enjoy the pictures and videos.

7-22-17  Hi Guys this weeks WB is going to have everything I missed while we were camping and having internet problems. Some of the stuff in this part of the post you may have already seen but never hurts to post it so everyone gets to see it all.

I found a few posts on AGNews that were interesting here they are.

Most of the pictures from the next part are from my fellow AG blogger Living A Doll’s Life. They posted some cool new items from Target, Micheal’s and Hobby Lobby. I also found some information on the new OG boy doll that was posted on Instagram by thejaysquared. I also found a leaked photo of Nanea’s Mini doll I don’t remember where I got it though because I got it before we left for Vacation.
