A Bit of Rambling + Some Deep Thinking

Hi guys! I've been doing a bit of thinking lately. I've been talking about getting either Truly Me #61, or #21, and obviously have been having quite a difficult time deciding :). That got me thinking even more...I'm a doll collector. Okay, it's bit of an obvious and redundant fact, I know. First of all, as much as I love AG, I also try to have a bit of variety in my doll collection. So, I have a few Gotz dolls, a couple OG dolls, a Madame Alexander doll, and four AG dolls. Don't get me wrong, I adore AG dolls, and they are probably my favorite doll brand, but they are just quite expensive. Of course, they are really well made, but honestly, I'm fairly certain that my Gotz dolls, although perhaps not as appealing to some, are better made than AG dolls, and less expensive. (Apologies for such a long run-on sentence!) In addition to that, I've been getting a bit...annoyed...with American Girl. I'm not really going to discuss that here, especially because this blog is mostly about AG. Because of this, and the fact that I want to have my doll collection vary, I do not plan for my next doll to be AG. DISCLAIMER: I am NOT saying that I'm not getting any more American Girl dolls; on the contrary, I plan to get quite a few more. Seriously, I adore those dolls. But, as I said, they are quite expensive. So, I'm probably will not be getting another one any time soon (unless I receive one for Christmas). I love all dolls, and I really want my doll collection to exhibit that. *Looks at all of the nonsense and rambling that I wrote*. Sorry for rambling on so much, I think that I mostly wrote this to get my thoughts out, and to make certain I knew what I was doing. So, you actually read all of that gibberish above, congratulations! Oh, and additionally, I want to thank you all for continuing to visit and comment on my blog, in spite of my long absence previously. I really, really appreciate it, and look forward to each and every comment I receive. Seriously, they make my day. Anyway, I once more apologize for all of my rambling. I hope everyone has an amazing morning/afternoon/evening, depending where you are in the world :). What's your favorite doll brand, besides AG?

P.S I apologize for any spelling/ grammatical errors that I may have made, it's been quite a long day :)

A Long Awaited Photo Shoot

Hi everyone! It finally stopped raining long enough for me to take some pictures! Goodness, it certainly is quite hot and humid! I love the sunshine, but I could really live without all of the humidity :) Anyways, on to the photo shoot:

Yep! Felicity is the doll I won off of ebay so long ago!




She is such a pretty doll! She has such gorgeous green eyes! 










 




Richard...What have I told you about photo bombing?


Um, excuse me!?!


Guys....

What do you think you all are doing!? XD, for some reason they think that a camera in my hand is a signal for them to rush over. 






I don't know what it is about this picture, but it just really makes me happy! 






Here are some bonus pictures that I took: 

The clover was just to pretty to not take a picture of them!


And of course, even more pictures of chickens, cause why not? XD


Anyhoo, those were all of the pictures. There were quite a bit more than I had realized :). Oh well XD. Oh, I updated my "Meet the Dolls" page (meaning I replaced most of the horrible quality pictures, removed the horrendous spelling and grammatical errors, and added Felicity :) I also added a "Meet L.Rose" page, so you can check that out as well :) Enjoy the rest of your day!

P.S So, guys, I could use some suggestions. Do you think that Truly Me #61 looks to much like Felicity? I'm contemplating getting her, but I'm unsure if I should or not, since she looks similar to Felicity. I also really want #21, so more reasons to be uncertain XD. The problems of doll collectors :)

My AG Doll Wish List

Hi everyone! I really wanted to have gotten up a 'real' post by now, but unfortunately, that just didn't happen. Hopefully, I can do a photo shoot this weekend, and redesign my blog, especially the 'Meet my Dolls' page *cringes at the horrible quality of the pictures, spelling mistakes, and grammatical errors*. Anyway, I really wanted to post, so I decided to show you guys the AG dolls that are currently on my wish list :).



Honestly, I kinda wish I would have gotten Julie before Beforever, because I really don't care for her meet outfit. But, Julie herself is such a beautiful doll, it doesn't matter :)





Once I saw Maryellen for the first time, I knew that she would have to join my doll family some day.







Wow, those are a lot of dolls! Currently, I have enough money to buy one of them, but I honestly can't decide on which one! The problems of doll collectors :D
I hope everyone has an amazing day!

Really Long Time, No See

So...like the title of this post says, really long time, no see. I cannot believe it has been a year since I have posted. I feel so badly for not even commenting on any of your blogs, I'm so sorry. I did start a new school, so of course I was busy, but then life got much more hectic. I'm not going to go into to much detail, but I got diagnosed with a chronic illness, POTS. That whole ordeal has been quite stressful. Like I said, I'm not going to go into detail with that here, but...I started a new, totally different blog, The Ramblings of a Bibliophilic Hobbit. That blog will mostly be about writing, literature, and other randomness, and I will go into more detail about my illness there, since this blog really isn't the place to do that. There aren't any posts yet, as I haven't much time, but everything else is set up. I did end up having to stop dancing, due to my POTS, and in addition to that, it seems that I went through this phase of reluctance to even touch my dolls. It was pretty horrible. But, I'm back now :). Let me just say, thank you all so so so much for all of the supporting comments everyone has left. I cannot believe all of the support I have gotten from you guys, just, thank you. I'm hoping to be able to re-design this blog, and start actually posting again in a week or two, hopefully. And (fingers crossed) I'm going to start commenting on everyone's blog again! I'm really behind on all of the AG news, I really need to get caught up XD. Again, thank you all so much for all of your prayers!

Updates

First of all, I'm sorry for not posting on here, and not commenting your blogs for awhile. My life has been very hectic lately. I have just started going to a private school this week, and I still haven't gotten used to the new schedule. I'm going to take a a week or two break from my blog, and will most likely not be able to comment on any others. I am NOT stopping for good, just for a couple weeks to get used to my new schedule. I have a whole lot of ideas for when I start up again, but I will probably only be able to post on the weekends until Summer. I can't wait to start posting again, and I will try to comment on other blogs, but I can't make any promises. I'm sure you all understand. Please pray that I get used to all the changes in my life.
