Just Between Friends Event

Today at the Mesquite rodeo Just Between Friends held their semi annual resale event where families tag and price their own items. All they have to do is drop the items off and the volunteers will run the sale. The sale started Thursday so by the time we went today there was a lot of items already sold. My mom and I went to the sale to see about toys for her daycare which we were able to find some that we wanted. I also had an alternate motive for going... looking for American Girl items. Which I was semi successful with! I found a Bitty Baby Christmas dress from several years ago and Bitty Baby crib plus many American Girl books. The crib was over priced to me at $75 and they had two sets of the Kaya book series for $5 per a book which was also to much for me for being used. I ended up getting the Bitty Baby outfit for $6 and a Kit coloring book for $0.50. I was really happy to get home to try the outfit on Jessika and find that the outfit fitted her. It is hard now to buy old American Girl books because I most of them but I will still be on the look out for more items in time to come.

The outfit came with the dress, hat, tights, and a little rocking horse.

Tackling some crazy hair!

This past Monday one of my mom's workers asked if I would fix her daughters dolls hair, but I was about to leave to head back to school. She knew I would be home today so she brought the doll over. At first I thought it would take forever but luckily it was not too bad, but it is the worst hair I have had to brush thus far. The daughter said she wanted Marie Grace's hair in a braid and that was easy enough! When she left to pick up her age sent us a video of her daughter excited about having Marie Grace's hair done!

Every time I see a little girl who has a doll with extreme tangles it makes me appreciate my mom making me wait till I was 8 years old to get mine. Before she bought me the cheaper Walmart/Target dolls to show that I could take care of an American Girl doll. It would have been nice if I did get them younger only for the fact that I would probably have more dolls.

Here are pictures of what I bought at American Girl Denver. I am glad that the store still had the Real Me outfit promotion!

American Girl Denver

 My brother being goofy :)
  My mom called my dad to see if he would let me buy a doll for an early birthday present... he said yes!
 I love the lighting

 This is the only Denver shirt... I wish they had more.

 I love these swim suites!
 Meet Jessika!

 Here is the birthday party the workers were setting up for.

Yay I got my 24th doll today! She is my first non Historical or Girl of the Year doll! I named her Jessika after my best friend when I was younger. Since this doll came out I have been wanting to get her for about eight years, but every time I get a doll I pick it because typically she is going to be retired that year. We got to the store 15 minutes before they closed so I was not able to go through out the whole store but it is much smaller then Dallas, and they do not have a party room. This means they have to hold private parties in the front of the store. The staff of the store was very knowledgeable on the products which I appreciate being an older collector (at the Houston store one worker called my Ruthie doll Rebecca). The mall that the store is located at is beautiful and unique!

Spring Break

This is very unexpected, but my family and I are in Denver Colorado! That means we will be going to the American Girl Denver Store! We have been planing to go this week but with the snow storms my mom was worried but instead of going through Kansas we went through New Mexico. Not till yesterday did I even realize that we would be in the same city as an American Girl store I have not shopped at! I brought Samantha and Saige with me to go to the store... usually I bring all of them to new stores for our first visit but are suburban broke down in January and we are borrowing my granddad's mini van because we only have small cars. My sister is a senior and is interested in going to CCU next year, so tomorrow and Friday we are touring the school. We are going to head back home on Sunday. Thankfully I only have school on Tuesday and Thursday, so even if were get back early in the morning on Monday I don't have school like my siblings.
