One: Quinn and I have started a magazine-Plain Fab-and our first issue is out. Be sure to check it out here!

Two: Claire (my awesome online friend) is trying to reach her goal of 40 followers before she has her one year blog-aversary. Please take the time to follow her at Claire's Curiosity! Thanks!

Third: I have posted 3 polls on my side bar asking reader's what they think the GOTY of 2012 will look like. Be sure to vote as I am will repost these polls towards Christmastime and it will be interesting to compare the answers.

Thanks and have a great day!

(oh, what I got from the AG Place will be up soon- I did it a little differently this time {but much cooler}, so it's taking longer than usual.) :-)

My Trip to the AG Place Denver!

Hey everyone! Here are some photos from the trip!
This is a very small store, but it was so cute and a great afternoon activity! 

When you first walk in the front doors, they have what they consider a 'book section' with selves of books and mini dolls, this is one of them. 

The Kanani section was very small, but they had this very cute Shave Ice Stand display! Also, there's a sign in the corner of the display that says that you can only purchase 3 Kanani dolls... Hmm....

They kept the MAG dolls in cases like these! 

AG set up some many cute displays! I especially like this one. 

Here's another one- again, adorable!

The new dining set looks very cute in this display!

Here's a Kanani sign that I took a picture of with. I know I look weird, but I had I stood up, my head would have been touching the top of the stand.... :-(

Then, on the other side of the store, is where they have the Historical Character items- like this cute school locker set for Julie!

I love Molly! I hope she won't be archived soon...

This is a great little set for Kaya! I love it, but unfortunately, I have no room for a teepee.

I love the little Josefina loom set!

Now, for the Creativi-Tees. This is such a great idea! Each of the T-shirts is $10. I purchased one! Here's how it works. First pick a shirt and a transfer (above).

Then, the AG Stylist places your tee on an iron thing.

She puts the transfer on the tee.

Then, she 'irons' it on!

Afterword, she takes the plastic off of the iron on, and it's done!


Here's a photo of all 3 of us! From left to right, Kayla, Quinn, and me!

I will post what I purchased later!

Gone on Vacation....

Hey girls! Tomorrow I will be leaving for vacation- and I will visit the AG Place! I may be able to post from my mom's laptop, but there may not be the usual amount of posts. I am taking Felicity and she will, well, I don't want to say much, but she will go to the doll hair salon! I will take tons of pictures and be sure to create a video and update my Flickr when I get back. 

I hope you girls have a great week!
~Gabby :-)

ps. Also, I am lifting comment moderation for the time being, but please be nice and follow the comment rules. Thanks!

AG Place Anyone?

Hey girls! I am still coming over shock about the amazing Harry Potter movie I saw yesterday (I will post about that later) but I got over it enough to write this AG Place post.

I am over excited to visit the one in Denver! I am not sure when yet, so that's why I am not inviting any of you to come and meet me, is because I'm not even sure when I'll get to go!
So, here are some questions that I have for you, I would love, love, love if you would reply to me!

  • Have you ever been to the American Girl Place Denver? Did you enjoy it? What was your favorite part?
  • Have you ever been to any American Girl Place? Did you like it? What was your favorite part?
  • What did you get at an American Girl Place? Do you have any 'What I Got at the AG Place' or 'AG Place Tour' videos? Please leave me a link if you do, I would love to see them!

A Mini-Scavenger Hunt! (photostory!)

Hey girls! The last time I posted a photostory is well... I don't know when... but here's one for you!

"Hey! Do you girls want to do something?" Kirsten asked, gesturing towards all of her sisters.
"Like what?" Kaylen yelled while listening to her iPod.
"Well, I was thinking a mini scavenger hunt. Come on girls!" Kirsten said.
"Okay girls! Here's the scavenger hunt! You need to find something old, something new, and something borrowed..."
"And something blue?" Felicity asked Kirsten
"Well... We'll get to that. Anyways, let's get started! Everyone gets 5 second to find something old," Kirsten said all of the girls set off.
Kaylen grabbed her old hat.
Kaya motioned for Coconut to come over. Coconut had been there since Kirsten came to Gabby's house. That would make her old right? Kaya thought.
Felicity took Kaylen's old Build-a-Bear that she has received a couple years ago for Christmas.
The girls all walked back within in 3 seconds with their items. 
"Great job! Now, let's move on to something new!!!" Kirsten announced. Before she could say anything else, the girls dashed off!
Felicity immediately knew what to get. She took her pony's Patriot's rope and led her to Kirsten. She was knew right?
"Awesome, Felicity!" She wrote what item she had found on the poster.
A second later Kaylen and Kaya appeared with a headband and a stuffed hamster they had received for Christmas.
"Great job girls! Now for something borrowed!" Kirsten said.
Within seconds they returned with items. 
"Oh great job," Kirsten said, her smile faltering. "And you took stuff of mine," she brought back her smile and continued. "Okay, now for something blue. This is really easy," she mumbled under her breath.
"Really easy?" Kaylen asked. Then they looked down and it all made sense.
All of the girls fell onto the ground to claim the rug- it was blue!
"Ah..." Kirsten giggled. "Nothing like seeing your sisters face-plant themselves onto the floor."

Need Advice?

Hey everyone!

So my friend Quinn and I are starting a magazine! It will be on the internet so every one can have access to it, and a subscription is not required. Anyways, we are having an advice column, but there's one problem, I have no questions to give advice too! If any of you are experiencing friendship troubles, worries about vacations, or anything like that, I would really appreciate if you would send your questions to my email address: No info is required about you- not even your name! This would really help me out tremendously and make our magazine even better.

Thank you all!

Old or New: (another) This or That?

Hey! Here's another This or That- about furniture. Enjoy!

Just Like You/My American Girl Beds
On the top is the new Bloom and Bedding  and on the bottom is the Curlicue Daybed. This or that? I honestly don't know, I love the bed in the bottom one, but I think the top bed has cuter bedding. So, I guess I will have to go with the Curlicue Daybed!

Flip Chairs
On the top is the Green Lounge Chair and on the bottom is the Floral Flip Chair. This or that? I like the Green Lounge chair better- it's looks so much more comfier!

Tables Sets
On the top is the Sweet Treats Table and on the bottom is the Dining Room Set. This or that? I totally prefer the top set- it looks much higher quality and it's way cuter!

Food Stands
(I know these aren't the same, but they are very similar!) On the left is Kanani's Shave Ice Stand and on the right side is the JLY Concession Stand. This or that? I prefer Kanani's Shave Ice Stand- it's very bright and fun and looks very high quality.

So what do you prefer?

Let's just take a moment and remember the people who gave their lives to make a America. (and they also put American in American Girls!)
