American girl store

While in the Windy City we went to the American girl store.

It’s a pretty cool place for little girls or the young at heart.

It’s amazing all the accessories one can drum up for a doll.

Does your doll appear to need to play an instrument?

Not to worry, you can get her this fine guitar

Or This lovely violin. There is also a piano or cello. Yes much to choose from. Your doll can also get skiing, figure skating or soccer gear and out fits, you name it they’ve got it.

The good thing about the location is next door is the lego store.

So if the guys get bored they can escape.

We let Charlie pick out her doll, she chose Saige the American girl of the year.


We like to sew

This year the urge hit to sew, sew things like doll clothes. Than we got our daughter an American girl doll.

Yes she wanted it but it was also me living threw my daughter. I wanted one as a child, my favorite past time was playing dolls, I was never into Barbies (they were taboo in our household) but into my rag doll Megan which my aunt made, I liked baby dolls too. I know I would have loved an American girl doll. In April my in laws arrived for a visit and along with them came a sewing addict. Yes my husbands mom has become some kind of sewing fiend. It was perfect timing really. She is extremely talented and a good teacher so with her help she has set me on my way. My mom had taught me too but it’s been a few years and I was a bit rusty. We made a couple of outfits together.

Here is one we did, PJ’s.
Of course she did more than a few on her own.

Here’s one if her amazing creations.
Since she has left I have been trying to figure out some patterns, figure out the sewing machine and  just finding time to sew period. It has now finally come together and here is my creation!

I made two of these one for each daughter (we plan to get an America girl doll for my older daughter too).  I like to go into my sewing zone and turn some music on or put on some language courses and sew away.

My sister in law from Canada is a very talented sewer too and she has a sight called Archer’s and you should check it out!


Yep, it’s official now I’ve hit the 3 0 There is this e-card floating around the Internet that has this quote that goes like this “I’m thirty but I still feel twenty…. Until I hang around with twenty year olds than I’m like no, never mind, I’m thirty.” That sums up how I feel about my age.

I had a good day. Had like a double party. My sister and her family came over and we had lunch/dinner than everyone showed up for study and it was a party all over again. I am blessed, God is good. The one draw back is my family from Honduras was here and they flew out early this morning so knowing they were leaving was a bit, no majorly depressing, but am thankful they were here as long as they were.

Wedding ring

I lost my wedding ring a few months back. My optimistic self thinks it will turn up or at least that is what I did think but now I am thinking it maybe gone. Maybe, I say, it could still turn up but until than. . .

this will take its place. I really like it and it only cost 9 bucks. I got the idea while looking in the jewelry section at Walmart and I saw this and you know, who would even know its a fake besides me? I really love my fake!!!
