We're Back!

Hi, everyone! It's me, Cali! This morning at 1 am (after a long time of driving) we arrived back safe and sound at our home in Florida. Sunny and I had a great time at the AG B&B and the Great Smoky Mountains. We took SO many photos that not even a quarter of them could fit in this post. Also, Sunny and Marigold both got new dolls at the AG B&B and guess what... they want their own blog! As if! I know for a fact that I am the ONLY doll to get a blog around here. Anyways, other than that, they seem pretty nice. Elana "Lanie" Drew Holland is GOTY 2010 so you probably know her (this is Marigold's doll) and Chloe Sage Hawthorne (Sunny's) is #25! Here are some pictures of them:

Sunny also got the following doll outfits:
1) Safari Sundress
2) Wilderness Outfit
3) AGP Exclusive: Vacation Outfit (Jane's)

Marigold got some doll clothes, too:
1) Sweet Melody Outfit
2) Outdoor Play Outfit

To see some more photos taken on our trip, click here. Not all of the photos are in the videos yet but the ones taken at the AG B&B and in Helen are. Hope you like them!

More posts introducing Chloe soon. Have a great Wednesday! :)

Off To AG B&B

This is a scheduled post due to the fact that Sunny's laptop's internet only works in her house. So, by the time you are reading this, I am off on our way to the Smokies and American Girl store. All of us are very excited about the trip and we can't wait to go to the AG store, especially! Sorry for such a short post, just wanted to keep everyone updated! :)

Have a great weekend!

Packed and Ready!

Tomorrow Sunny, Marigold, and their parents, and Felicity and I are on our way to the AG Boutique & Bistro Atlanta and the Smokey Mountains! Woo-hoo!
As you can see, I am very excited about the trip (I even get to miss a day of school!). Unfortunately, though, this means no posts (except for a scheduled post tomorrow) until Wednesday. :( But when we do get around to posting, you'll see a post with a TON of pictures and a link to a photo album or video of all of them.
Below is a quick snapshot of Felicity and I posing with our suitcases. We brought along a bunch of clothes and hair ties but we'll probably get one or two outfits at the AG B&B. Also, rumors have been going around FMSG that a new doll or two might be coming back to Florida with us...

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great weekend! See you in a few days! :)

So, I've been reminding myself to tell you all how it went with Jane. Let's just say she wasn't very forgiving at first.
"I am so, so, SO sorry I bragged about going to the American Girl store," I said, truthfully after lunch the day after the argument.
"Yeah, right. I bet you loved shoving it into our faces that Sunny chose YOU!" Jane shot back, crossing her arms across her chest.
"I seriously didn't mean to. I was just answering your question!"
"Oh, whatever."
"I mean it, Jane. I'm sorry."
"How do I know? People say they're sorry all the time and half of the time they're lying!"
"I'll prove it. When I go to the AG Boutique & Bistro I'll pick you up something special, I promise."
"Of course! You're one of my best friends, Jane."
"You're my best friend, too, Cali. I guess I did overreact a bit."
And then we hugged and made up! I am SO glad Jane isn't mad at me anymore. Being angry with someone is no fun AT ALL.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

A (Late) St. Patty's Day Post

I'm really sorry for not posting on St. Patrick's Day. I was totally planning on it but, unfortunately, life caught up with me. So, everyone, here is a special St. Patrick's Day photo taken of me in my green dress and with my St. Patty's Day Beanie Babies. Happy belated St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Rose's Spring Photo Contest

Time for our Rose's Photo Contest entry! Unfortunately, no pictures I had seemed to feel, well, spring-y. But to my pleasure I did find the perfect photo to represent Crazy for Cali in her contest.
To me (and all of my friends at Frosted Meadows) spring is enjoying the outdoors and all the fresh greenery with loved ones. :)
Thanks to Roses are Read for creating this contest. We had a lot of fun entering!


P.S: A post about how it went with Jane should be up Friday or sooner. Thanks!

A Little Drama

The title pretty much says it all.

Yesterday at lunch Jane, Noelle, and I were sitting with Gwen, Piper, and Shannon (who now are the best of friends) and were chatting with each other about Spring Break and report cards.

Jane- So, what's everyone doing for Spring Break?
Noelle- I'm going to sleep over with Madi on Friday to go see that new Alice in Wonderland movie.
Gwen- Omigosh, I really want to see that! I'll probably be seeing that over Spring Break, too.
Piper- Shannon and I are thinking about going camping. (Piper was smiling when she said this but Shannon didn't look very thrilled)
Jane- That sounds like fun. Cali and I have been camping before, right, Cali? ... Cali, we haven't heard what you're doing???

Well, you see, Sunny told me to not brag about going to the AG B&B Atlanta around the other dolls too much. That's why I was TRYING to not join in with the conversation but when Jane goes all "why aren't you talking?" it's hard not to boast a little bit.

Me- Um, I'm going to the American Girl Boutique & Bistro, remember? With Sunny and Mari.
Noelle- No way! You are so lucky, Cali.
Me- Uh, thanks?
Gwen- Be sure to take LOTS of pictures. We want to hear all about your trip when you get back.
Shannon- Definitely. I bet it's amazing!
Piper- Of course it is, Shannon.

Jane was the one who wasn't saying anything this time. I glanced over at her and noticed that she was just staring at her macaroni cheese and moving it around with a spork, angrily. No one else seemed to notice so I just let it go. Right now I am deeply regretting that decision.

I thought (like any other argument we'd gotten into) Jane would get over it and we'd hug and laugh about the situation. Well, I guess I thought wrong because for the ENTIRE rest of the day Jane avoided and ignored me as much as she could. She was acting like it was my fault I got chosen to go to the AG B&B.

I told Noelle about how Jane was acting and she said that the "little green monster" can get the best of people. I knew what that meant. Jane was jealous. She was mad because she couldn't go to the AG B&B with Sunny, Mari, Felicity, and I. Now I felt terrible. That was exactly what Sunny suspected would happen if I talked about going on the trip too much.

So now I am in this big heap of trouble with Jane. Noelle said that Jane was thinking about going back into her AG box and mailing herself all the way to one of the AG stores but I'm smart enough to know Jane would never do that. I guess I am going to have to let things work themselves out. Today is a new day and just maybe Jane will be over the whole American Girl Boutique & Bistro thing. I am crossing my fingers that she will be!

Sunny has been messing around with her new phone A LOT lately. I guess you could say that this is a good thing because she figured out how to upload the photos from her cell phone on to the computer. All of the photos were taken at the pond in our backyard or a nearby park. Here are a few of the best photos:

Both of these photos were photoshopped with Picnik. Which one do you like better???

We were thinking about submitting one of these to Rose's contest but we aren't sure yet. To see more photos of Felicity enjoying spring click this linky. :)

Sunny's New Phone

Life has been boring here... for me, anyways. Today Sunny got a new cell phone (she used to have a Rumor) called the Palm Pre. It is AWESOME. I know that this has nothing to do with me or AG dolls but there's really nothing else for me to talk about other than school. Plus, her new phone is really cool and it takes really good photos! She wants to post a picture of me she got off her phone soon... if she can figure out how to do that...

So that's her new phone! I love the case. :)
On another note, I have been thinking quite a bit about what I should do for my picture for Rose's Spring Photo Contest. I'm not sure yet but I have a few ideas. Now I'm just waiting for the perfect spring afternoon!
Well, that's that for updates. Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

It also is quite close to spring! Although it's been rainy off-and-on here in Florida I can definitely tell spring is just waiting to arrive! :)
