Hola! I’ve missed you guys! However, I have some sad news. I’m going to be leaving this blog. I am so sorry, but with school, sports, and friends and family time I just don’t have time. Dolls aren’t my passion as much as they used to be, and I need to focus on other things too. Thank you to all of you who have supported myself and this blog, it means a lot to me. Never stop doing what you love. ❤️
Goodbye, so long, adios, see y’all later.
Hello, dear readers! It’s Madison! And today I am super excited because I am doing...the Avocado Tag! The wonderful Jewel tagged me! Thank you so much! Also, thanks to Anna Regina for making this tag! Let’s get started!
Do you like Avocados?
YES! I absolutely love guacamole. 😛
What was(or is)your favorite childhood toy?
American Girl Dolls!
How do you usually wear your hair?
I usually wear my hair down with a little side braid.
Would you rather fly, have super speed, or super strength?
I would love to be able to fly!
What is your favorite movie?
I love Wonder, all of the Star Wars movies, all of the Harry Potter movies, and Sing!
What is your dream career?
I would love to be some type of writer or do something with animals!❤️
What is your favorite color?
Sorry, those are the only people I could think of who haven’t done this tag yet. If you want to do it just let me know in the comments and I’ll add your name to the list!
American Girl is retiring tenney, Logan, Z, and Gabriella! I learned about this from Jewel. I think it's okay that Gabby's leaving because her year is up. However, I will miss the other dolls. How do you feel about this matter?
I hope you guys enjoyed this tag! Have a magnificent rest of your day!
“And I’m Caroline.”
“Today McKenna and I are going to compose an outfit for Josefina! We will take turns choosing a piece to put on her outfit.”
”Yep! I can’t wait to see how this goes.”
“Great! Let’s begin!”
”Wait a minute! Now?”
“First, let’s begin with Josie’s shirt. The purple fabric will bring out her eyes!”
“My turn! Moving around is easy in these athletic shorts!”
“As you can see, vests are in style right now.”
“That’s why I had to include one in Josie’s outfit!”
“My turn! Who doesn’t love a soccer jersey?”
"McKenna! How DARE you cover up the vest! It looked perfectly fine before!"
Josefina gulped, clearly uncomfortable. "Why don't we all come down..."
Caroline waved her away, still concentrating on McKenna. "Quiet Josie."
"ANYWAY, let's accessorize."
"Doesn't she look so glamorous in this pink scarf?"
McKenna rolled her eyes. "Let's move on to shoes! These boots are the bomb!"
Josefina winced. "Guys, can I please take this scarf off? All of these layers are making me sweat!"
Her older sister shook her head. "Quiet Josie."
"WAIT A MINUTE!" Caroline gasped dramatically.
"I almost forgot Josie's shawl!"
After that incident, McKenna whipped out a hair brush. "Lets do this!" she cheered.
"Now let's get out all those tangles."
"Oh McKenna. You really do have no sense when it comes to hair. I, on the other hand, do. Take a look at this!"
"Boom." Josefina sighed. Guys, can we be done now?"
This will be perfect to cover up those flowers." McKenna put the hat on. "The outfit is complete!"
"We did a great job!"
"Yah! Josefina has never looked better!"
"Hey McKenna, do you wanna go grab some ice cream?"
"Totally! Let's go." Caroline and McKenna walked away, satisfied.
Josefina gaped, trying to process what had just happened.
Saige strolled into the room. “Hi Josie!”
“Wow! You look..nice?”
Josefina laughed. “Yes. Absolutely glamorous.”
I hope you guys enjoyed! Happy August! Do you have any plans this month? Tell me in the comments. Bye!
It was a peaceful Sunday afternoon. Grace was playing with her doll. Everything was going perfectly...or so she thought.
”Awww, you look so pretty, Gracie!” Grace smiled at her doll, satisfied.
“However, I absolutely cannot have you walking around without shoes!”
Grace looked around, determined to discover the perfect pair. Finally, she found the perfect pair...boots!
“Okay Gracie! Let’s put this boot on! Woohoo! Let’s do this!”
”Wait one sec Gracie, I need a drink. Oh come one, you can wait one second!”
“Okay! Now that I’m hydrated I need to put the other boot on.”
“Uhhh...where is the other boot? I can’t find it? I don’t suppose you’ve seen it Gracie? No? Okay, it was worth a shot. Now there is only one girl left who can help me...”
“Grace!!!! I came as fast as I could! What is it? A fire? A broken leg? A tarantula?”
“Worse...I can’t find Gracie’s shoe!” *cue gasps from the audience*
“Seriously? You made me leave my ice cream sundae...for a missing doll shoe? I need to get back to it before it melts! I’m coming, Chocolates -Vanilla Swirl!”
“No, Saige! Wait! This shoe is from my favorite pair of doll shoes! I need to find it....I need you. Please?”
Saige sighed. “Fine. I’ll help you.” Grace cheered, satisfied. “Yay!!!! Then what are we waiting for? Let’s do this!”
The search began!
”Definitely not here!”
"Not up here!"
20 Minutes Later...
Grace and Saige both sat down, discouraged. "It's no use" Grace moaned. "We'll never find that shoe!"
Saige got up and patted Grace's shoulder. "You know what, we looked the best we could. That's all we could do. I'm sure it will turn up. I'm going to go finish my ice cream sundae. See ya!"
Grace smiled weakly. "See ya." As Saige left, Grace decided that Gracie would need to choose a new pair of shoes. As she picked th doll up, Grace gasped, her mouth hanging open upon what she saw beneath Gracie...
The Missing shoe!!!!!!!
When Grace saw that shoe she didn't think:
Thank goodness I found you!
Instead she thought:
It was under Gracie the whole time? Saige is going to kill me!
Saige stopped short. "Oh no wha-"
She stopped short when she saw the missing boot in her sister's hand. Grace followed her gaze. "Oh yeah, I found the missing boot! It was under Gracie the whole time! Crazy, huh?"
Saige's face was red with fury. "THE. SHOE. WAS. UNDER. THE. DOLL'S. HAND. THE WHOLE. TIME? MY ICE CREAM SUNDAE MELTED FOR THIS" Saige roared. Smoke was practically coming out of her ears.
Grace swallowed hard. "umm...sorry about that" she gulped.
"Is anybody going to put this shoe on me?"
Hey guys! I hope you all enjoyed this little photostory based on a true story, like the title said ;) In other news, I'm going back to school on Friday, so I’ll probably only be able to post once a week. Wish me luck! Have you ever lost a doll item? I would love to hear what it is in the comments! Have a terrific day!
Hello! I hope you’re having a lovely day! Recently I went to the beach on vacation and Kanani tagged along!
(sorry for the bad quality!) Here is a picture of Kanani all ready to go!
The hotel I was staying at had some beautiful scenery, so I decided to take a photoshoot of Kanani. I hope you enjoy!
This sign is so colorful!😍
Have you ever been to the beach? What is your favorite vacation spot? Let me know in the comments! Have a spectacular day!
Hello! How are you doing today? My name is Kanani Akina, and I got tagged by the amazing Maryellen from All Doll'd Up to do the Ag Q&A Tag! Thank you so much Maryellen! I was super surprised that she nominated me, and can’t wait for you guys to get to know me better!
Shall we begin?
1. Which one of your sisters do you not get along with? And why?
Well, because I’m the oldest and take care of my sisters, I have to get along with all of them. However, when Saige was on that tap-dancing phase(when I say that I mean all day, everyday)all of us were a little annoyed.
2. Do you have any doll friends outside of your family?
I recently had a really nice conversation with Janet. She is so sweet!
3. What’s something that your human does that annoys you?
When she shakes me to see how loose my limbs are. I mean, I can still stand up, now give it a rest!
4. What’s your favorite movie?
Sing all the way!
5. What’s your most favorite toy that you own?
I do love my Hula Hoop!
McKenna: It’s true! She’ll spend hours outside with that thing!
Hey, this is my interview! Goodbye!
I had a blast! Thanks again, Maryellen!
-Gabby from All American Girl
-Isabelle from Ag and Me
-Michelle from The American Girl Spot
-Crystal from American Girls in Alaska
1. Which one of your siblings do you get along best with?
2. What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
3. What genre of music do you listen to the most?
4. If you could meet any movie character, who would you meet?
5. If you could time travel what time would you go to and why?
I hope y'all liked my post! Have a great day!
Over and out,
Jewel is hosting a giveaway on Doll Notebook! She is generously giving away a beautiful Cinderella dress for 18inch dolls. You should totally enter it! If you do, good luck!
“It is I, your favorite Simply AG sister, Caroline!” *cue the applause*
“Today I will be teaching you how to look your best during Summer.”
“But first, I will need a model. Please welcome.........”
“Miss Kanani Akina!”
“Are you ready Kanani?”
“Then let’s get on with the show!”
“First, let’s tackle the shirt. I would do a cute tank top. I recommend light/pastel colors, because they’re so much fun!”
“Now it’s time for the bottoms. If you have a flowy shirt, like Kanani’s, I would pair it with shorts, not a skort. Denim jean shorts are sooo in right now, you can never go wrong with these babies!”
“Shoes time! Because there is yellow in the shirt, I am going to go with these yellow and orange sandals.”
“Done, done, and done!”
“BUT WAIT! People, do not click out of this post because we are not-I repeat, we are NOT done!”
“If you have a printed neckline, I strongly suggest banning necklaces so your outfit doesn’t look to busy.”
“However, improvising is always an option. Take this headband, for an example.”
“Just wrap it around your wrist twice and bam! A bracelet.”
“Finally, lets get on to the hairstyle.”
“Make sure to brush out your hair to remove tangles first.”
“You can also spray your hair with a little bit of water to help tame crazy strands.”
“Its usually depressingly hot in the Summer so you might wanna wear your hair up...just a suggestion. Except, of course, when you have a really good style in with your hair down, like I have in now. That’s when I will make an exception.” ;)
“Today, I am making a little braid at the top of Kanani’s head.”
“After that, just make a regular braid and weave that tiny braid into it.”
“Secure the style with an elastic. Feel free to add a clip to the bottom of the braid, like Kanani.”
“Ta da! I did an amazing job! Kanani, darling, no need to thank me. The look on your face will be thanks enough.”
“Well, I hope you guys are now notified on how to look absolutely awesome in the Summer.”
Wow. I should have known something like this would happen when I let Caroline take over today's post. Oh well, I hope you guys still liked it. If you did, don't forget to leave a comment and a follow! Have a good day!
Hey guys, what’s up? I recently got nominated by Jewel to do the Blue Sky Tag. Thank you so much!
What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Salted Carmel all the way!
Do you prefer to chill with others or by yourself?
Are you afraid of heights?
When I have a harness on or if there’s a railing, no if I’m not 100 feet up. If I don’t have anything to keep me from falling...definitely. *winces at the thought*
What are your 2 favorite movies?
2. All of the Minion/Despicable Me movies
I know that was two, but I still can’t forget about the Star Wars and Harry Potter movies!
What is your favorite TV show?
Cooks Vs. Cons! It’s on Food Network.
Read or write?
Jewel don’t do this to me!!! Uhhh... no comment?XD
What song have you been listening to lately?
Better When I’m Dancing by Meghan Trainor from The Peanuts Movie. I know it’s old, but it’s so upbeat and fun!
Do you have a hidden talent?
I’m a good poet!
Are most of your friends around your own age, younger, or older?
I’d say around my own age. However, my friend and I both love little kids. We always give them hugs and say hi to them!
How do you feel about Star Wars?
I feel that George Lucas was a genius. I love everything, from the Wookiees to the E-Woks. From the Millineum Falcon to Darth Vador. Luke and Han and Leia, oh my!
Do you like cats or dogs better, and why?
Dogs, no doubt. Actually, I’m allergic to both but not as much with dogs as I am with cats. Also, cats kiss and claw at you. Dogs give you kisses and shake your hand. After all, they are man’s best friend! ;)

Now on to the 4th of July part of this post!
A long time ago on this day, our country gained independence from Great Britain. Here is a patriotic photoshoot of Grace. Enjoy!
The Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key
Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave,
O’ver the land
of the free
and the home of the brave?
OOh, this is probably my favorite photoshoot I have done yet! Grace was a great model:) Have a terrific day!
