Hello!  Today I have just a few photos of Maryellen.  I got her on Thursday, August 27.  I found out about a special preview one hour before store opening, which worked out because I had to work that afternoon.  I would have risked being late to work if I had to wait until regular store opening.  On Maryellen’s first day, staff were dressed up in 50s dresses.  And so was I:

Molly dressed up too.  Of all my dollies, she seemed most excited to meet Maryellen.  I imagine a teenage Molly liking Maryellen’s stuff too.  Poodle skirts, jukeboxes, and diners, oh my!

I got most of Maryellen’s things.  I did not get the sofa bed or the TV (I might have if the store had the TV in stock).  I also skipped the poodle skirt because I already have one.  But then I read Maryellen’s book and her friend Karen copies her and also wears a poodle skirt on the first day of school, so now I’m considering buying a copycat poodle skirt!  I bought the diner even though the store didn’t have it in stock, but that way it was shipped to my house for free, so I didn’t have to carry it up to my 3rd floor apartment!  I haven’t had much diner playtime yet, but I hope to soon.

Here are some photos of the gang dressed in Maryellen’s clothes:

And how ’bout a pajama party with Maryellen’s living room furniture?

I think Maryellen’s collection is off to a nice start, but oh I hope we get more.  I’m terrified that Maryellen will follow Caroline’s pattern, and we will get 2 more outfits before she retires in 3 years.  Oh I hope that will not be true!

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!

2 days to go!

I’m going to American Girl the day after tomorrow! And some girls get to go today!  Happy Girl of the Year day! At 2 days to go, we are at Girl of the Year 2013 Saige.  Saige might be my favorite girl of the year, but it’s hard for me to pick favorites.

Saige is still celebrating the holidays in her fancy dress:

And this is a photo of Saige the day I got her:


And Saige and I went to balloon fiesta in Albuquerque last October:

Okay, it’s late, and the site isn’t quite cooperating, so I’m gonna sign out.  Adios!

I really like Kit’s new outfits, but they seem more 50’s than 30’s to me.  But what do I know, that was decades before my existence!
