Did you know that Jenna is an Anne of Green Gables fan?  Well today she, Alexi, and Portia are reenacting a scene from the movie:

There she weaves by night and day

A magic web of colors gay

She has a heard a whisper say

A curse is on her if she stay

To look down on Camelot

I picked up all the new BeForever outfits a few weeks ago, immediately after they were released.  Now they’re all on sale for about 20% off.  Sigh.  But these photos I took may benefit some of you who are thinking about grabbing these items now that they are on sale.  I was gonna post a really clever story about all of them, but I ran out of energy.  I’m pretty sure I have pneumonia, because everything inside my rib cage is aching as if I’ve done hours of heavy lifting (I haven’t).

So enough complaining, and on to the photos I took a couple weeks ago!

Ivy in Julie’s coat and beret:

Kirsten in Julie’s skateboard outfit:

Mia in Julie’s Maxi Dress:

Kailey showing off Julie’s new sunglasses (she dropped Julie’s tie-dye bag behind the TV…I think I’m gonna have to punish her):

Lindsey in Julie’s Funky Flower Outfit:

Ruthie in Kit’s Springtime dress:

McKenna with Kit’s new overalls and chicken:

Isabelle in Rebecca’s bathing suit:

Julie in her holiday dress and egg chair:

Nellie in Samantha’s Special Day dress:

Felicity in Samantha’s dress:

Chrissa in Samantha’s travel set (and Samantha’s old dress):

Saige in Samantha’s Flower Picking outfit (and the hat from her hairstyling set):

Addy’s new dress:

Marie-Grace in Addy’s sewing dress:

Kaya’s new shawl outfit:

There are some really great outfits in this set.  My first thoughts were “nice, but I wish they didn’t cost so much.”  The sale prices make them just about right.  Not exactly a bargain (like $55 Julie doll from the today show), but a fair price.  I wonder how long these “limited edition” outfits will be around.  I’m also surprised Caroline and Josefina got left out for this release.  Are they on their way out?  While I would be sad to see them go, I hear we’re getting new historical characters soon!  We’ll talk more about that later.  So long for now!

So, I bought Jenna a boat.  Technically it’s Caroline’s boat, but I bought it for Jenna.

I got the boat for half price from the Today show steals and deals!  I also got a Julie doll for my coworker’s granddaughter, who will be turning 11 in June.  $55 for Julie and her patchwork outfit!  I’m so excited that I got in on these great deals; I know a little girl who will be so so happy.  And, Jenna gets a boat!

Jenna loves boats because of her hometown Lunenberg, Nova Scotia.  Let’s flash back 18 months or so:

In July 2013, Jenna and I visited Lunenberg, Nova Scotia and other destinations in Maritime Canada.  Lunenberg is one of Nova Scotia’s gorgeous natural harbors.  The Bluenose II, the boat on the back of the Canadian dime is docked in Lunenberg (though it was in the shop when we were visiting).  Of all the trips I’ve been on, this one is still my favorite.  To quote the Anne of Green Gables movie, “years from now I’m going to look back on Green Gables as a beautiful dream that will always haunt me.”
