Update

Hey guys.
So for now, I think I'm just going to take a break from this blog.  It might be permanent, I'm not sure, but I think I'll make a blog just for like myself and stuff :)  Thank you for the people who have stuck by me even though I've been breaking so much.  I hope you can still go back and enjoy the posts I've had before <3 And maybe someday I'll return for good!
But for now, bye!  I'll update you guys if I end up making a blog just about myself! :D

P.S. Be sure to check out the AGDS Weekly and our 2 years blogaversary posts below! :D

AGDS: 2 Years Blogaversary!

So, a lot of you probably didn't even know this, but today, February 16th, AGDS is celebrating being 2 years old!  So, join our celebration! :D

I can't believe how long I've been on here. Time really flies.  It seems like just a few weeks ago that I was joining the AGFMB and creating my blog.  I've made so many awesome friends through American Girl, and even though there's been struggles, and I've taken breaks from this blog for way to long, I plan to keep posting and not take a break for more than 2 weeks, unless it's a serious issue.
This is seriously the longest I've ever kept a blog for.  Normally I just delete it a few months later, but I stuck with AGDS. 
Thank you everyone, for being so supportive and such an amazing group of girls!  I've been through so much and I wouldn't ever redo my decision to create this blog!  Even though I've taken many breaks, a lot of you have still stuck with me and that means so much to me.  I know everyone says this, but I'm telling the truth.
Thanks for your support!  I couldn't do it without you!
~Hope~

Happy Valentine's Day + Behind the Scenes of our Party!

Hey girls!
Happy Valentine's Day!!  I hope you all had an amazing day, and I apologize this post is so late!
Caption That Doll #14 Results + new picture will be posted tomorrow (or Monday, depends), but either Sunday or Monday!  Normally I will post it on a Saturday, though! :)
Anyways, here's a behind the scenes peek at our AGDS Valentine's Day Party!
Molly handed out the cupcakes and worked behind the table for the party.  Each holiday, we rotate and this time it was Molly's turn!

We used our DIY's in the Valentine's Day video and used the same adorable table to hold our goodies and decorations! :)

All the dolls got the little bags and they each made Valentine's for each other. :)

After the girls got their snacks, the sat down and chatted.

Mallory couldn't resist an adorable little cupcake! ;)


"Time to exchange Valentine's!" Molly declared after everyone had finished eating.

Everyone then began to exchange Valentine's ! :)
Overall, it was a great Valentine's Day!  I hope you all had an amazing day, as well! :D

Caption That Doll Picture #14: Top 3 (4?) Captions + Poll!

Hey guys!  So here are my 3(er..well) favorite captions from this week!  I think this is the hardest time I've had (so far) picking only three, because all the captions were great!  And since I had so much trouble, I had to go with four!  Since it's my first week, I figured it wouldn't be a big deal if you had to decide between four! :)  The poll will be linked below!
The first caption is, Madison's caption! :)

Mallory: SAIGE! The Valentines party is supposed to be perfect! You are RUINING IT!!!!!!!!
Saige: But...but...but..
Mallory: UGH! You are SO disappointing. On so many levels. *flounces out of room angrily*
Saige: But the Valentines Day party ended! I'm taking the decorations down because it's all over!

The second caption is Anonymous A's! :D
Mallory: SAIGE! YOU TOTALLY RUINED MY FAB PARTY! HOW DARE YOU?! I LIKE, TOTALLY WANTED IT TO BE LIKE, PERFECT! UGH!
Saige: Mallory! It's not my fault you knocked the decorations down!
Mal: Uh, Moi? Knock something down? I don't think so darling!
Saige: Ugh!

The third caption is Katie's
Saige: Ugh! My dress is too poofy! This Valentine's day party was supposed to be the best! You ruined it with your disco music!
Mallory: It's fine, I love it! And, I love disco music. Who doesn't?
Saige: I wasn't talking to you! This dress doesn't fit me right. By the way, no one likes disco music.
Mallory: Uh, well, who were you talking to?
Saige: HOPE! SHE'S THE ONE TAKING THE PICTURE! Ugh.

And lastly, Sophia's caption!
Mallory: Okay, who did it?
Saige: I don't know, but I do know it wasn't me! *fidgets with dress nervously*
Mallory: Saige! You ruined it!
Saige: Uhm, oh, I heard the oven! Your cookies are done.
Mallory: Cookies! What were we talking about?

Here's the link to the poll! :) http://agdsctdp14.questionpro.com
Good luck girls!  Winner will be posted Saturday!

Ruthie's Birthday
Ruthie's birthday is on the 12th, and she said she didn't want a party.  But honestly, who doesn't want a party?  So, guess what?  We're throwing a SURPRISE PARTY for her!!!  :D
Valentine's Day
Whoooo's excited for Valentine's Day?  I sure am :D Mal and Saige are throwing a party, and I'm pretty excited.  I volunteered for the snack committee, but apparently I can't because I'll eat all the food!? -_-
Anyways, have a great week!  Cya in 2 weeks :)

AGDS Weekly-1/12/15

Hey everyone, it's Kit and welcome to the first official AGDS Weekly!  We did this several months/a year ago, and I'm excited to bring it back!
So, a lot has happened this past 2 weeks I'm excited to share with you!  :)
First of all, events this month:
Jan 1st-New Year's Day
Jan 5th-Mallory Monday #1
Jan 12th-AGDS Weekly 1/12/15
Jan. 19th-Martin Luther King Jr. Day & Mallory Monday #2
Jan 26th-AGDS Weekly 1/26/15
So, onto this week of AGDS!
Mallory's Cousin
Mallory is really excited because her cousin Bella Thomas {Grace Thomas} is moving back to the United States from France this spring/summer.  {Meaning, Hope is going to get Grace!}
Holiday Highlights
We all had a great Christmas and New Year!  The day before Christmas Eve, one of Saige's friends had a big Christmas party.  It was really cool--I kinda got kicked out because I ate all the chips {oops}.  On Christmas Eve, we all slept in and made pancakes--I put red and green frosting on mine {some thought it was gross, but it's delicious :P!}  Then, we did all of our holiday traditions--listening to Christmas music, in our Christmas PJ's all day, looking at Christmas lights, watching Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate and going to Christmas Eve service. 
Christmas Day was awesome as well!  We woke up, opened presents and hung out together the rest of the day.
On New Year's Eve, Mallory had an awesome party and we stayed up pretty late!  {past 12:00}
Overall, the holiday's were great!  How was everyone else's holidays?
Your reporter and writer,
Kit

Heyyy everyone! (:
I hope you all had lovely Christmases!!  Here is my 2014 Christmas Haul {just my American Girl doll things}.  If your interested in things I got from my family, then read below the pictures!
Just want to make a quick note  that I am certainly not bragging.  I am very, very thankful and blessed for everything I got.

So all the clothes I got are from Sophia's My Doll's Life {www.doll-clothes.com}
Here's the first top I got--this adorable blue rhinestone sweater!  I looove this so much.

The only fault is it isn't zipper or Velcro, so I literally had to strangle Kit to get it on :P {sorry, Kit}

Random, but these green socks came with the order as well {it was like spend $30/50 more and you get these}

Next, I got this adorable pink ballet style top and these adorable floral pants.  And the pink Ugg-style boots!

The top (:

The top & the pants


And a bottom view!


Here are the boots, these are soooo adorable!

Last of all, this adorable light brown suede zipper vest.

AGDS is back! :)

Hey everyone!
Yes, AG Dolly Sisters is {finally} back!  After neglecting this blog for too long, I've finally decided to make a reappearance.
I've planned out my posting schedule for the entire month of January.  Some new "events" I guess you could say are going to be added on to the blog, so I'll explain them below! :)

First of all, my new header!  I really love this and I've been trying to make one for a long time, so I finally decided to edit one!  You can see it above!
Second off, a posting schedule.  These are the days I'll be posting.
I'm also introducing a new video series--Mallory Monday!  Every other Monday Mallory will post a new video for her online "blog series" Mallory Monday.  Mallory Monday is not really going to be a show or anything--more like video updates from Mal--fashion, makeup, doll DIY, tags--videos like that.  The Monday Mallory doesn't post her videos will be AGDS Weekly.
 
Guess what's back?  Caption That Doll picture!  The next picture should be up in a week or two! :)

So that's all!  I made a Christmas Haul video, but it's having some technical difficulties so I might just take pictures and upload those!
Thanks!
~Hope~

 

~My Opinion: Grace Thomas GOTY 2015 & her Collection~

Hey everyone! :)  So to start off January, I've decided to do a "my opinion post" on GOTY 2015--Grace Thomas and her collection.  Let's get started! :)

So, here's Grace!  I looove Grace, and she's on my wish list of dolls (only 1 other, MAG 35).  Grace's story is fairly unique, but I absolutely adore her collection!  When I purchase her, I plan to rename her to Bella.  Since she's French, she's probably going to be Mallory's sister or cousin.  And her side bangs?  ADORABLE!  Her meet outfit?  ADORABLE! 

Here's Grace's baking outfit.  This is really cute, but probably not on my wish list.  For some weird reason, the cupcake pattern on the blue shirt is upside down?  I love her apron, though!  So that's a maybe!

I love, love, love her pajamas!  I love the light blue color, and her bangs look really cute in the side ponytail. This is on my wish list!

Grace's City Outfit.  Well, done Ag!  This totally looks like something a girl would wear today!  I love the white collar under the red sweater.  And her shorts?  Cute!  This is for sure on my wish list!  Couldn't you see Saige or Mallory wearing this?

This is pretty cute!  The only part I really like is her dress, her headband looks like something you'd find at the dollar store and her sandals are okay. :)

Grace's travel coat. Kudos to Ag, this is only $28!  When I saw it I expected some crazy price like $38!  Honestly, this coat is so adorable!  I love the light blue color!

Grace's baking set.  This is so cute, but I've seen one from Our Generation for $16-20.  This is $68.

Grace's French bakery.  This is sooo cute!  But it's $500.  WHAT?! 

Grace's French bulldog. Aww, I love the bow!

Grace's bistro set.  This looks like something that would be great for stop motioning!

Grace's travel set.  This is adorable!

Grace's pastry cart.  Um, not a big fan.  What's with all the curly cues?  This looks way overdone.

Grace's Paris accessories.  I love these! (:
Overall, her collection is cute and I love the blue!  It's definitely not as pink and overly girly as usual.  Bravo, Ag!  I love her collection!
