Ellie Went to the Tower of Americas!

Heyyy, people of the earth!

 I’m finally posting this Maryellen went to the Tower of Americas last summer when I went to San Antonio to visit my grandma! We also went to the Alamo and the River Walk, but I don’t have any pictures of those because a) I was like freaking out what if I dropped her in the river and I would have to take a dip in a green river filled with duck poop and algae. Oh and I guess Ellie would get wet too b) I would lose Ellie and my iPad and stuff so yeah you get the point.

So um, I guess I’ll let Maryellen take it from here…..*sighs at her absolute craziness*

Hola, my loyal subjects! It is Queen Maryellen here, the Empress of Everything. As Emmie probably already told you about the excursion I took a few months ago I will skip the intro and get on to the post, shall we?

This is a view of the Tower.

This is me and Emmie at the top of the Tower! The elevator ride was a bit scary (I’m claustrophobic) but it was worth it! You can see all of San Antonio from up here! It was really windy! Photo credit: GMa M

After looking out the windows we made our way to the Charthouse cafe. I begged Emmie to let me stop at the Grabber machine! I didn’t get anything, sadly.

So, I guess that concludes this little post! Sorry that it’s so short – sadly, we lost the majority of the pictures because SOMEBODY took so long to post this thing. *glares at Emmie* Well, anyways, we decided to bring back the random edit! Who wants Whatcha Wearin’? to come back as well? NTTM?

The Random Edit!

Random Word of the Day: Anchovies! (Very random indeed.)

Random Fun Fact of the Day: A shrimp’s heart is in its head! (Weird and very random!)

Random Thing I Did Today: Thou art watched Captain Underpants whilst thou eateth chocolate-covered popcorneth.

The Super Bowl: A Mini Photo Story + WE HIT 100!!!

NO. WAY.

Untitled design.png

SAY WHAT NOW??? I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You guys are so awesome! *hugs everyone* MARSHMALLOWS FOR EVERYONE! Wait, not everyone…*takes insulin shot* ok now I get my marshmallow! XD We’re going to have an AWESOME blog party next weekend, on Saturday, February 17, 2018 (exact time TBD) More details in tomorrow’s post!

Anyways…I thought it would be fun to do a little photo-story! Enjoy!

~In the POV of Maryellen~

IMG_2284Today is better than Easter. My birthday. Or (dare I say it?) Christmas.

IMG_2263 2.JPGWhy? Because it’s Super Bowl Sunday.

IMG_2264 2.JPGI race in to the living room at 5:00AM, a countdown until the game airs already ticking away in my head. Twelve hours to go.

IMG_2265 2.JPGStanding there, in all of its wonderful glory, is the coveted…

IMG_2266 2.JPGSUPER BOWL.

IMG_2267 2.JPGEvery year on Super Bowl Sunday, Alexandra decorates a bowl in a superhero mask and a cape and fills it to the brim with M&Ms. Then, all the other dolls have to guess how many M&Ms are in the bowl and put it on a slip of paper..

IMG_2269 2.JPGAnd the best part? The person closest to the total amount wins the ENTIRE BOWL of M&Ms! And bragging rights. Don’t forget the bragging rights.

IMG_2270.JPGWell, you see, dear reader, that I have never won this glorious treasure before.IMG_2271 2.JPGThat’s about to change.

I have a secret strategy, you see, that I am afraid cannot be disclosed. So, shoo! I need to get to work here!

 2 hours later…

~In the POV of Alexandra~

IMG_2272.JPGI arise at an early hour, to get up and defend the Super Bowl. I just can’t keep certain somebodies from stealing M&Ms or trying to pry the number out of me–This year, the number is 82, but shhh!

IMG_2273 2.JPGI walk in to the living room.

IMG_2274 2.JPGMy jaw drops in absolute horror. My face turns white in shock.

IMG_2275 2.JPG“WHERE. IS. THE. SUPER. BOWL?!?!!”

~In the POV of Maryellen~

IMG_2276 2.JPGIt had taken a while to get all of the dolls to get up early, but all of the votes were in. Then, when everyone went back to bed, I struck.

IMG_2277 2.JPG“WHERE. IS. THE. SUPER. BOWL?!?!!” I hear Alexandra exclaim maniacally. I have to stop myself from dying of laughter.

“GUYS! WAKE UP! THE SUPER BOWL IS GOIMG_2278 2.JPGNE!!”

IMG_2279 2.JPGEveryone comes rushing out of their room. “What do you mean?” “Huh?” “What?” “How could this have happened?”

IMG_2280 2.JPGThis is my cue. I strut in to the room with a mischevious smile, chocolate smeared around my lips.

IMG_2282 2.JPGI hold out a sheet of paper with my guess on it.

IMG_2283 2.JPG“Well,” Alexandra says. “I guess you win!”

IMG_2284 2.JPG“I already did!” I lick my lips.

Take our poll: It closes tomorrow!

 

I May or May not be Starting a New Photo Story Series!

Greetings, People of the Earth!

And just like that, Christmas is over.

It went by really quickly. All of that waiting, and the day finally came. And the day passed with the blink of an eye. And then it was New Years and things.

So basically, now I’m bored.

So, when I’m bored, I start thinking. And when I start thinking, I think about a) AHH THIS COUGH IS SO ANNOYING WHYYYYYYY THIS MEIDCINE IS SO GROSSSSSSS b) If it’s so cold WHY CAN’T IT JUST SNOW AGAIN jkagjerithdjfhaadsafsksjaskdj c) Ohh I have an idea for da blog!

And so, I’m spending these cold, rainy sick days (maybe I could have made that sound less depressing) working on this stuff!

iu.gif
See look even Darth Vader is excited

So we may be starting…

A new…

All I have to do is finish up the parts, wait for those props from Etsy to arrive, take all the pictures, build the set…yeah, I’ve got a lot to do.

Christmas Collab Day 6: Z and Lissie’s Egg-cellent Egg Race

Elloh, epole fo eth artEh!

Word jumble, which is my recent obsession. 🙂 Here’s another puzzle:

maChiss si ni VENSE YADS!!!!!!!

Christmas is in a week! I can’t believe it. Anywho, on with the post!

(PS Emmie Awards voting will be up tomorrow.)

.

“I’M SO BOOOORRREEEDDD,” Felicity groans.

IMG_1825.JPG

“Why don’t we open today’s advent?” Z suggests.

IMG_1826.JPG

“Oh, yeah, duh, why didn’t I think of that?”

IMG_1828.JPG

The two girls slowly pry open Day 6.

IMG_1829.JPG

“Have an Egg Race,” Z reads.IMG_1830.JPG

“Six geese-a-laying,” Felicity hums quietly. “Here, I’ll get some spoons.”

IMG_1831.JPG

“Wait, what are you doing?” Lexie asks.

IMG_1831.JPG“Having an egg race,” Z replies as she scampers off with an egg carton, but Alexandra stops her.IMG_1833.JPG

“I’m not letting you get egg yolk all over the floor,” Alexandra says in a mom-like tone. “If you guys are gonna have an egg race, then you guys better do it outside.”


“Aww, C’mon, the lighting is terrible outside,” Emmie groans.

IMG_1834.JPG

“What was that?” Alexandra asks. Z replies with a shrug and races off to find Felicity.
IMG_1836.JPG

“Change of plans, Lexi says we hafta move outside.” Z. explains.

IMG_1835.JPG

 

 

 

 

“Ok,” Lissie replies.

IMG_1837.JPGOnce they are outside, they set up the eggs. “3…2….1….GO! Felicity is in the lead!” Felicity yells in her best commentator impression. “But Z. is coming up in a close second! And oh…oh…oh…Felicty DROPS the egg!”

IMG_1839.JPG

“I WIN!” Z. yells triumphantly.

IMG_1840.JPG

“Wait, who is that behind Z.? Could it be…another player?”

IMG_1841.JPG

“MARYELLEN!” Z screams as Maryellen dumps her egg on to her head.

IMG_1845.JPG

“He he!” Maryellen giggles mischievously and scrambles off.
IMG_1846.JPG“I’m gonna go hose myself off…”

IMG_1847.JPG
She turns it on, and nothing happens. Felicity takes her foot off the hose.IMG_1848.JPG

“AHHHHH!!!!” Z shrieks as the hose sprays her in ice water.IMG_1853.JPG

“At least we’re outside?”

Duh-dun-dun!

Christmas Collab Day 1: The Un-pear-able Treat

Hello, people of the earth!

Today is day 1 of the collaboration with the fabulous EnniMorgan! Her post will be up later this evening. I’ll be posting tomorrow, then she’ll be posting the next day, then I’ll be posting the day after that, and so on.

So, let’s get started, shall we?

Please ignore the fact that Alexandra is not wearing underpants…

“What’s that?” Maryellen asked, pointing to the foam cut-out in Lexie’s lap as she and Isabel walked in to the kitchen/living room.

“It’s an advent calendar. Emmie made it for us.” Alexandra propped the “advent calendar” on the couch.

Isabel shot Ellie a confused look. “What’s that?” She mouthed. Ellie shrugged in reply.

“It’s how we’re gonna countdown until Christmas. Each day, we’ll open a flap and do an activity that the flap reads.”

Alexandra flipped open Flap #1. “What does it say?” Maryellen asked eagerly.

“Make a pear-related treat.” Alexandra read aloud.

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO MEEEEE, A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEE,” Isabel sung loudly.

“Oh, I get it. Let’s look up some recipes.”Maryellen said. Alexandra flipped open the laptop and browsed through recipes.

la dee da.png

“This one looks good,” Maryellen said.

“I’ll preheat the oven!”

“I’ll gather the ingredients!”

“I guess I’ll do the baking,” Alexandra ran off to the counter.

«1 Hour Later»

Maryellen pulled the tray out of the oven, expecting to find rows of perfectly browned apple-and-pear crisps. Instead, she found a single lump of stringy, burnt pears.

“What’s that?” Alexandra asked.

“Ummm….our pear crisps.” Maryellen hesitantly took bite, which she immediately spit out. It tasted Terrible with a capital T!

“Wait, how high did you set the oven too?”

Sorry this is blurry!

“Uh, 3,760 degrees, like the recipe said.”

“No, the recipe said 376 with a degrees sign! That little O at the top means degrees!”

“Oh.”

Alexandra facepalmed.

Z’s Media Kit REVEIW

Hello everyone! Welcome to American Girl World! Today I’ll be reviewing the Z’s Media Kit from American Girl! This is ironic, because I am taking pictures of a photography studio in my new photography studio! XDD

You can see Victoria and Emily up there!

The front of the box has an image of the product with Z standing next to it, the Z Yang Collection logo-thingy, and some camera illustrations that look like they were done on a chalkboard. The back of the box says: Ready, Set, Record! Z’s Set features a working studio light, functioning clapboard, a megaphone, booklet, award, tote bag, and a reversible screen featuring a Seattle scene.

aw

It was fairly easy to assemble. The instructions were very detailed, “Short stick + long stick”. Thanks, AG.

Here’s it all put together! The screen is a really good quality fabric, though it comes folded so you might want to iron it. The scene is really cute! The studio light requires 2 AAA batteries. I am a bit upset they only included one studio light, as one light creates a lot of shadows and you should usually use two or three lights.

The reverse side is a green screen. The only problem about this is you would need editing software to make it work in your videos.

It also came with a megaphone, a booklet, and a “Z. Awards” trophy.

View of the booklet.

Even in the book it says to use two or three lights.

And of course, Z has her clapboard!

***NOT SHOWN: Purple tote bag

Overall, I really liked this Set! I don’t think that it is worth $60 though, Maybe more around $45. The only thing I would really change is having two studio lights, but other than that the set is adorable! I 1000000000% recommend this set and I am really excited to see the Doll blogging community use this!

Thanks for reading!

Victoria the Dreamer | I Got a Free Doll?!

Hello, my loyal marshmallows!

It is I, Emmie! Thanks for stopping by! So……My neighbor was getting rid of some of her doll collection! No, she is not an American Girl Doll. But, even though she is not an American Girl, I think she is beautiful. At first I thought she was creepy but know I really like her. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MRS. P! Now, for the reveal!

WARNING: If you are creeped out by dolls that are not American Girl, then you probably shouldn’t read this post! She’s actually not that creepy, but I know pediophobia varies, so, be careful….

Meet…

VICORIA ELISABETH BLOOMSBURY!

IMG_1394.JPG

(Sorry for bad lighting!)

She has curly blond hair, bright blue inset eyes, painted lower lashes and synthetic upper lashes, A porcelain face with beautiful paint, a gold locket and a matching bracelet. Her early 1900’s style outfit is a teal blue color with puffed sleeves and lace. She has bloomers, rose-embroidered tights, and shoes that have little roses on them. Her headband is coral tulle shaped like a flower.

IMG_1395.JPG

Here is a back view^

She is 11 years old and likes playing with her dolls, embroidery, drawing, and singing. She is from 1905. I don’t think she is going to be part of the doll family because of her difference in size, and she is very fragile and more of a collector’s doll.

IMG_1397IMG_1396

A side view^

I think she is really pretty! What do YOU think of Victoria? Comment below!

IMG_1167

I have been working nonstop on the script for Forever! I feel like I have too many of the same sounding scenes…so I have to work on that…and then there’s costumes….and sets…plus I signed up for 9999 photography contests and then a book to beta-read (hi Enni!)…HELP ME!!!!!

Any ideas for Forever? What do you think of Victoria?
