HOME! (and... The Return of Doll Trek)

We are HOME!!!

Tintin was reunited with Captain Haddock and Snowy:

We drove 14 hours yesterday. Note to self: NEVER do that again!
I listened to some music.... finished The Fellowship of the Ring.... Started Two Towers.... Read some Sherlock Holmes.... tried to keep Mom awake by playing Mad Libs (ever heard of Wolfgang farfegnugen Mozart? Or the song, "Yankee doodle went to town, riding on a toe nail, stuck a feather in his button, and called it ham bun?") .... and tortured Tintin.

"Ai ai ai ai ai! Put up your sword!"

"My name is Tintin Montoyo, you killed my father, prepare to die."


"Snowy! Bite through these ropes! Oh yeah, Snowy isn't here because someone wouldn't let Abbey take along more than 2 stuffed animals!"

We got home around 9 PM. It was great to see my dad again and Rosey! We missed Rosey soooooo much. She stayed with a friend while we were gone. They took very good care of her. =D
The first thing I did after saying hello and bringing the stuff in from the car, was to dress my dolls in the outfits I got at American Girl Place New York City; I wasn't allowed to take a doll along on the trip. This morning I did a photoshoot with them and their knew things.

Addy's Plaid Summer Set:

This dress is absolutely beautiful. It is worth every cent, except maybe the bow which I'm not quite sure what to do with. It's very wide and very short. The boots that came with this outfit are adorable!

Speaking of adorable... Kit's Reporter Dress!

Next to her birthday dress, I think this is my favorite Kit dress. It is so cute! The shoes are the best part of the outfit. I think they are the cutest doll shoes I own! Again, the headband I'm not sure what to do with... It doesn't fit the doll's head and just pops off, but I was kind of expecting that. If you are considering this outfit, do not hesitate to buy it! It is worth it (just for the shoes, hee hee).

Josefina's Dress and Vest:

Josefina's accesories:

Emily's accesories (1940's; I don't have Emily, but the sweater looked cute on Ruthie in her meet outfit! And Ruthie and Emily's stories are only 10 years apart so the dress styles aren't too different.... And yes, those are the school desks that you can sort of see!)

AGPNYC black exclusive tee:

I kind of went crazy with the pictures...

Some of you may remember Doll Trek from my third or fourth blog post.
Well..... It has returned.

The original video can be found HERE.

And here is a preview a certain Hobbit:

Reconize him? You should if you are looking forewards to The Hobbit movie!

And now I bid you goodbye. Do you have any big summer plans?

P.S. Like the new look?


  1. Hi! Okay, first of all, your photos are gorgeous! I don't have an American Girl doll anymore, but I had Molly since I was nine and I loved her till she fell apart (hence the reason I don't have one...) My favourite outfit is probably Josefina's.
    Anyway, I'm responding to your comments on my blog because I wanted to make sure you'd see them.

    About Sherlock and all that. Wow! What a well-thought-out comment! It really made me smile, AND it made me think. I'm glad you wrote in. That's a really good point about how Holmes could be a villain without really trying; he used to scare me when I was younger and I first read the books. But I love him regardless, as you pointed out...

    As for inflicting your opinions on the world, more people ouught to do that if they were as logical as yours, haha.

    (obviously this is going to be a pretty long comment as well.)

    On to the second one:
    Thanks, I love Treasure Island as well. I like to find books with pictures in them. I'm like Alice in Wonderland; a book without pictures is boring. (well, not always).

    Yes, there is a Firefly movie called Serenity. I'm kind of a sucker for science fiction. I just watched it and it was amazing, but kind of depressing as well. Another one of those 'ambiguous morals' type stories. Mostly because the main characters are smugglers and outlaws. Oh well...

    Thank you again! (about the dress). I feel like a huge nerd for 'playing dress up' like that, but I suppose I am one anyway.

    Well, anyway. I found your blog when you followed me, and I love that you post so many photos. I seriously don't know how you do it. I'm far too impatient. Your trip (yeah, I'm snooping through all of your old posts) looked like so much fun. I've never been to any of those places, but it was cool to see them from far away :)

    Yup, this is long now. I won't take up anymore of your time. Have a lovely day!

  2. It's a Hobbit AG Doll! Pippin, if my memory serves true (which it frequently does not)
    Lots of pretty pictures! :D
    And glad you've survived the roadtrip!
