Hello all! :D
Two weeks ago my family went to AGP Kansas City to celebrate Juliefan’s birthday!
Juliefan was planning on purchasing Maryellen with her birthday money at the store, but my mom and dad surprised her with the doll before we went. She was so excited, and plays with her a TON. So if you see photos on Instagram of a Maryellen doll, you’ll know where she came from. XD
Anyway, I took the camera (and Jamie) and snapped a few photos while we were there. :)
Let’s just say Jamie was not impressed with Gabriela. I made her a little name tag that said “Hello, my name is Jamie,” that I stuck to her shirt. I think she looks pretty cute.
New 2 piece swimsuit and beach accessories.
V neck pink hoodie! Catlover02 purchased this while we were there. Now that I see it, I really wish I had picked it up. ;)
While AG’s big end of the year sale had ended, they still had several “wrapped” winter outfits on sale!! I got the Merry Magenta outfit for $23! I was pretty excited! They also had the White Ballgown Store Exclusive, and Enchanting Winter Outfit. They were 40%. :)
The new daybed set up. :)
New hot air balloon pjs! :D
Gabriela’s new pjs! I really love her kitten size.. it’s pretty accurate. The face is still a little scared-looking, but the size.. *dies*
Amaya went for a little ride.. XD
Gabriela’s main display! :D
Gabriela’s dance case and Sparkling Sequins outfit.
Amaya also made a new friend! :D
Some of the new mix and match pieces! Juliefan ended up picking the pink skirt, and our mom bought the adventure tank and boho shorts for Darica. :D
The Truly Me display. Don’t all the simple boxes make it seem peaceful? *sighs happily*
One of the strange things was, at the store, the main wall usually used for the GOTY display was filled with Truly Me dolls and accessories. I’m guessing they’re saving it for Tenney Grant next month. ;)
Those are all the photos I took! The two things I purchased at AG were the Merry Magenta Dress, and the Slow Cooker Set. I’ve always wanted the adorable food set, and since I knew it was probably going to retire soon, I’d better snatch it up. It has tons of adorable pieces, I’ll probably do a review on it sometime in the near future. I actually almost purchased Rebecca, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to yet, so I didn’t.
We also went to Hot Topic, where Catlover02 and I bought some Star Wars pops. I got Sabine, and Catlover02 bought Hera, Ezra, and BB-8 that was supposed to be exclusive to one of the big Comic-cons!! She was really excited. :) I also got a surprise Pusheen plush that ended up being the one I wanted – Pusheen holding a cookie! XD
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the photos and hearing about our trip! :)

I might be making a custom doll… ;)
P.S. Please tell me I’m not the only one stoked for Saturday – STAR WARS REBELS. SABINE. KANAN. THE DARKSABER. *dies* *fangirls*

A custom doll?? Now I’m quite curious. XD
Ha ha.. yes.. XD
What was that about a custom? Who’s making a custom?
Wow, you guys look like you had a blast!! I love AG. *sighs happily* ❤
Thanks, we did! Me too. *sighs happily with you*
How fun! I hope Julie Fan had an awesome birthday! :)
I didn’t know you wanted Rebecca! ;) DollBaker24 has her, and she’s a super gorgeous doll! :D
I enjoyed seeing your photos of the AG Store! :)

Awesome! Can you review the stuff you got please? Thanks!
Thanks! Hopefully, I will! :D
Also, I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. https://sewsweetdollies.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/the-one-lovely-blog-award/comment-page-1/#comment-163
Aw, thank you! That’s so sweet of you. :)
So cool thanks for sharing!
That looks like so much fun, Hersey! (Is Hersey reserved for Jaclynn and Emma or am I allowed to call you that too? ;) Either way is fine. :D )
Congrats on getting the slow cooker set! I got it for Christmas 2015 and I love it. :) And I don’t watch Rebels but I probably should, haha. XD
Thanks Grace, we did have a lot of fun.
Unfortunately, Hershey is reserved for members of the Secret Society of Desserts.. XD
You should watch Rebels! You would LOVE it. *dies of fangirling*
What is the Secret Society of Desserts?
It’s a secret. XD JK. The Secret Society of Desserts is a fun name Jaclynn and Emma came up with for us 4 friends (Emma, Jaclynn, Catlover02, and me). The members all have dessert names. :D
Rebecca is an amazing doll. She looks nice in basically whatever you dress her in. :-)
Ooh, thanks for sharing. :D
REBELS!!!!!!!!! I’m excited too, even though we haven’t caught up yet. but every friday we watch a movie or something, but recently we’ve been streaming Rebels episodes. tonight we’ll start with ‘an inside man’ and get 3-4 episodes down before we have to go to bed. :P
I LOVE REBELS!!!
(we always end up yelling at Ezra, and in my day dreams, he gets slapped a lot. XD )
CAN DARTH MAUL JUST DIE, FOR HEAVENS SAKE?
ok, I’ll stop now. :P
Most crazily, Mahar
(Mahar is my star wars name. Mahar Casan. :P )
Oh, yes, a fellow Rebel fangirl!! :D That’s awesome!
I agree, he’s been alive for far too long.
Right? :) what would your star wars name be? (it doesn’t work for some people though. I have one friend, where her name would be Mcdsp. poor thing. XD
I don’t know, I’ll have to figure it out! :) Aww! LOL. XD
Oooo, a custom doll! Very interesting!
Oooh! I loove the slow cooker set!! XD XD
Anyways… Looks like fun! Yes I like the good old AG boxes, too ☺
Me too, it’s super adorable! :D Thanks, we had a great time. :)
Great post! You were thinking of getting Rebecca? I didn’t know you wanted her XD oh, I got the slow cooker for Christmas! I love it. Isn’t it just so cute!? Me… Plus doll food… *dies*
P.S. Tell Juliefan I said happy birthday!
I don’t really want Rebecca, but I like her eyes and face mold.. ;) Did you see the secret message at the end of the post? *hint hint*
Yes! I’m so glad I finally purchased it, all the pieces are adorable! :D
P.S. I will! :)
Looks like you had a great time! Jamie’s outfit is adorable and her name tag is perfect.
Thanks Xyra! <3 :)
Hot Topic and AG store, my type of shopping day
Looks like you guys had tons of fun! I died when I saw the picture of Jamie and Gabriela xD I’ve never been to an AGP, but I’m going to AGP Minneapolis in March :D! Congrats on everything you got, btw!
Also, is Star Wars Rebels good? I love regular Star Wars, but I’ve never thought of watching it.
Oh, Rebels is awesome. Some parts are boring or cheesy, since it’s a kids show, but I am a huge fangirl of it. The characters are awesome (Kanan and Hera.. I ship them!). Right now they’re on a 3-4 week break between episodes, and I’m just like AUGH! XD I need more Rebels!! So yeah, if you aren’t scared off by my crazy fangirling, you should totally watch it! :D
We did, LOL! XD Ooh, that’s awesome! Thank you! <3 :D
I wish I could go to an AG store soon…. Their are so many things I want to get!!!! Also, happy birthday Juliefan!
Where is the secret message? PS. I love STAR WARS!!!
I found it- CUSTOM!!! AHH!!!!! Congrats:)
After you make the custom, could you maybe give some tips on how to make a custom? I want to make one bad…… :)
I most likely will! :D
Hi American Girl doll Artist! I’m a beginner photographer, so I’m looking for a good camera to use. I’d love to hear what camera you currently use and your recommendations. Thanks!
Hi! I use a Nikon 7.100 camera with 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lens. :) This camera is a little high on the expensive side, so if you are looking for something less expensive, this isn’t for you. I don’t have much experience with Canon and other cameras, sorry. :) Best wishes on finding the perfect camera! :D
I LOVED your pictures! That Hello, my name is Jamie tag is AWESOME. XD
I watched Star Wars Rebels before, but I really like Clone Wars! I don’t watch either very regularly, but I love catching up on episodes whenever I visit my BFFs in Texas – they really love Star Wars. :D I was SO SAD at the end of Clone Wars when Ahsoka left, but I heard she’s in Star Wars Rebels! Is that even true or am I just crazy and am totally wrong on my Star Wars “theology”? XD
LOL! XD Thank you! :D
No, that is true! Actually, *SPOILER* in the finale of Rebels, Season Two, Ahsoka battles Darth Vader. Some people have replayed the episode and have spotting Ahsoka walking away from the fight, but the episode never really flat-out said Ahsoka lived. *END OF SPOILERS* So all the Rebels fandom is kinda living in suspense. XD Catlover02 and I are crazy fangirls of Rebels. Like we enjoy Rebels as much as the movies. 😍 😂
Hehe! You’re welcome! 😄
When you told me she battled Darth Vader, I was like, ooh, cool! And then I was like “WAIT ANAKIN WAS HER MASTER! THAT’S SO SAD!” And then my face was like 😱😱😱 LOL! I reeaallyy want to see more of Rebels now! 😂
LOLOL!! 😂😂 Yeah, it is really sad! 😔 But awesome at the same time, y’know? XD Rebels is just.. augh. *dies*
Ahhh I bet the fight scene was awesome 😄😄😄 Anakin / Darth Vader and Ashoka are some of my favorite characters in the Rebels and Clone Wars shows… I really want to watch Rebels now 😂
You will watch Rebels. *Jedi mind trick* We watch season 1-2 on Amazon (you purchase the episodes/whole season) and watch season 3 (in progress) on DisneyXD.com. :)
I… will watch Rebels. *goes off to watch Rebels* Do they have them on Netflix?
I bet they have the DVDs, but not available for instant streaming. :(
Ah, okay. :( I will find a way to watch it! 😄 *thunder and lightning as she shakes fist* Feel my wrath, Netflix. You should get Rebels.
LOL, great! 😍😂
Will you be posting soon?
