Hi everyone! This is Katie here, and I have some big news.
I made a new blog for the dolls.
Yes, I did. I am very tired of this blog, and I couldn't post while school was in session. And I didn't like the way I've managed this blog. And I didn't like how it wasn't exciting. I didn't like much of it at all, to be exact! I have grown so tired of it! It's so boring! So, I have created a new blog where all ten of my dolls will be posting. Here is the link: http://summeradventuresofag.blogspot.com/
The link will also be on the sidebar!
The new blog will:
Be FIFTY times better.
Have MORE posts.
Have MORE pictures.
Be more attractive.
Be more organized.
I will move all of the links to other blogs that I have on my blog list to the new blog also. It's going to take me a while to get the blog perfectly polished, but probably only 2 days at the most. Here is what I will be doing:
-Finding a good background. -Making a header. -Fixing the fonts. -Creating a blog list. -Deciding whether or not the blog will be for all of the dolls or just one...
I would really appreciate it if y'all spread the word that I have created a new blog for the dolls. I promise I will post more on there. The new blog will be awesome!
P.S. I am still going to buy a surprise doll! ;)
UPDATE: I have just realized that I will have the surprise doll be the author of the blog, but for now the blog will be The Summer Adventures of 10 American Girls.
I, Katie, will be making a brand-new, ten times more awesome, American Girl blog! Yep.
But guess what? It will be written by a new mystery doll I am going to be getting, and I will post the link on this blog once I receive the doll. The blog has not been created yet, but will definitely be created VERY soon... I almost have enough to buy the doll I really want.
I'll give you a hint about the doll: She's not a Just-Like-You.
Yes. Maybe I'll post once in a while, but not as much as I used to. Why? Well, there are a number of reasons:
1) I am bored with this blog, it's not what I wanted it to be.
2) I don't have very much time, what with school and family and friends.
3) I have pretty much outgrown American Girl dolls. The only doll I will continue buying things for is Rebecca, and possibly Molly. I might buy Emily, but she will be my last doll if I do happen to buy her.
BUT, I will still be on YouTube, and still keep the blog's email running, and I have another blog, a book blog called Rainy Day Reviews. I talk about books I am reading, books I am wanting to read, stories I'm writing, and a lot of other literature-related topics. I usually post about once every two weeks, but I'm going to hopefully start posting once a week, on weekends.
So, yeah, I might buy Emily, but she'll be my final doll unless I miraculously get back into American Girl again.
I am terribly sorry it's been so long since my last post! Please forgive me! I am doing lots of schoolwork these days, and Pioneer is doing tons of schoolwork too.
Pioneer doesn't get home from school on weekdays till almost 5 PM, because her school doesn't get out till 4 PM, and then doesn't usually get on the bus till about 4:20, and then the drive to her house is 15 minutes long, then she has to finish her homework and catch up on her writing. She just mumbled about how she wishes that school still started at 8 AM, not 9 AM, which is the time her school starts, so that she would get home an hour earlier because if your school starts at 8 then you usually would get home at 3 PM. She would much rather get up an hour earlier than get home an hour later.
Pioneer is also mad because the school cheerleaders are selling carnations for students to buy for other students for Valentine's Day. How pointless.
Sorry this post sounded "angry", we're just stressed over school.
So, the point of all this is to say that we don't have time to post. I might be able to post once on the weekends, but don't expect a post very often. :'( I'm so sorry I can't post, I am so mad, I just don't have time.
Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've still been trying to get into the swing of the second semester at school.
So, on Christmas Eve Kimdale's Christmas Choir sang at the Christmas gala. That picture is of me in my choir costume, the wool skirt was super itchy! We sang, "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing", "Sleigh Ride", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "Forsty the Snowman", "Walking in a Winter Wonderland", and "I have a little Dreidel". It was really fun!
After we finished singing, we all ran back to our dorms, got our pajamas on and grabbed our pillows and blankets, and then ran back to the choir room, where we had our own little party. Our choir teacher put in the movies 'Elf', 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer', and 'It's A Wonderful Life' (I requested it since it's my absolute most very favorite Christmas movie). She gave us cookies, milk, and other treats to eat too while we watched to movies.
We stayed in the choir room till midnight, and then we all went back to our dorms. I had a sleepover with Mia, and we set out the cookies for Santa with Pioneer. :)
It was probably the best party I'll ever go to! I had so much fun!
Well, I've got to go now, but I promise to start posting more often.
P.S. Do you like my background? Purple is my favorite color, in case you didn't know.

Hi! My name is Mary-Lucia Kenelly, but please call me Lucy. I'm an American Girl doll Just Like You #34. I have straight auburn hair with bangs, dark brown eyes, and light skin. I attend Kimdale Academy for Young Ladies, where I am in the school's choir and captain of the volleyball team. I also love acting, but not as much as reading and writing. I want to be an author when I grow up. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
