The Guiding Compass – Part 2

The door opened slightly, and a timid-looking girl appeared in the doorway. Her dirty blonde curls matched her tan complexion and reached the waist of her brightly colored tribal print dress. With one of her hands she clutched the embroidered strap of her burlap messenger bag and in the other she held a camera. Its neon pink strap dangled from it, unused. She had set down beside her an American Girl shopping bag. It was obvious it was filled with {Read More}

Review: Playful Polar Bear Pajamas

When the polar bear pajamas were first released, I thought they were adorable and I knew I would probably add them to my doll clothing collection sometime. The rest of my sisters were ordering a few things with free shipping in September, I think, and I decided to buy these pajamas. I was going to save them for Sarah to wear on Christmas morning, since that’s  her birthday. But I really wanted to get them out and so I waited {Read More}

Retired AG Items I’d Like to Obtain Someday

I love stalking Ebay. It’s really fun, and I feel like I’m looking for treasure, and I have to find it first before anyone else does. There are some things on Ebay I’d like to add to my collection someday, and here they are. 🙂 Note: This is NOT a wishlist, just a fun list. 🙂 Kanani’s pajamas. These were originally $24, and they sell for about $5 more on Ebay, which isn’t bad. I love the blue color on {Read More}

Packing Up – A Photostory

“I was just thinking,” Isabelle said to Kanani, “That since Mom is so busy with school and packing, that we should try to pack some of our stuff ourselves!” “That’s a great idea!” Kanani said, “Let’s start right away.” “What are you doing?”  A head popped up in between them. “Augh!” Isabelle exclaimed, surprised. It was Jamie. But Jamie was wearing sunglasses, which made her all the more prone to scare someone. “You look like a spy,” Kanani said, laughing. {Read More}

My Bucket List By Kanani

Hello world, this is just a fun, random post. Mom said I could post all by myself, with no help. How cool is that? Anyway, I was wondering what a bucket list was a few days ago, and Grace told me all about it. So I thought to myself, I should make one. My Bucket List: 1. Go to Hawaii. I’m pretty sure it won’t happen this summer,  but I’m still hoping it will happen sometime in my life! Ah, it {Read More}

Results for the Kanani Poll

Here are the results for that Kanani poll I had in this post. Question: Do You Have Kanani? No, but I really want her! : 15 votes No, but I don’t really care.: 3 votes Yes, but she’s a little trashed: 2 votes Yes, she’s in mint condition: 1 vote No, one of my siblings does though: 0 votes. Well! Let’s just say that if AG decided to bring back Kanani or make a Beforever Hawaiian, they’d make a mint. {Read More}

To Send, or Not to Send…..

I have wanted Kanani’s hair to be curly. Ever since she came on December 9th, 2013, I have wanted her curly hair back. She came right before lunch, and after I ate, I raced up stairs and combed through Kanani’s rough hair. I twisted a section around my finger, and I convinced myself that it was curly. But it wasn’t. Eventually, I combed out her “curls”. Next, I tried a makeover. Take that times four.  4 makeovers, and not a {Read More}
