The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

Birthday Gift Review #1: From Sarah and Lucy

Okay, lemme vent for just a sec before I get started on this next wonderful review! The computer is CRAZY slow. It is literally DRIVING ME CRAZY! I am very aggravated at the internet right now. Yes, I'm thankful, but I'd be more thankful if it was a bit faster.... no, a LOT faster. Yesterday (I'm not kidding or exaggerating) it took about four hours for sixteen-eighteen pictures, and then from 12 to 6 or 7 for about 30. AUGH!
Okay, I'm ready to start.

Birthday Gift Review #4
This wonderful, amazing, awesome gift was from Lucy and Sarah.
Most clever gift ever. Ready?
Yup, everyone knows I'm a chocoholic, including Lucy and Sarah. Believe it or not, that was over a week ago and I still have some left. There were over fifty of those things! I forgot to count at the beginning but.... See that little glass jar that is the perfect size? She stuffed it with chocolate and it seriously took me several minutes to pry them all out. I mean, to help the situation (of course, it was to HELP the situation), I had to eat a couple, but.....
Plus, the washi tape is Light4theLord's FAVORITE color, and my third favorite!

Ahhhh... beautiful chocolate. It's lovely. It's delicious. It's dark chocolate, what else?
I love chocolate: from white chocolate to milk chocolate to 85% dark chocolate.
Oh, and the wrappers are my second favorite color. *grins*
I got to model the dress (though it looks much better on Elly. She tried it on several days ago, along with MY new birthday necklace), with fits perfectly! It's a satiny-emerald green dress that is just PERFECT! It's like, one of the only green things we have. Us dolls have about three green things that I can think of, and for some reason, all the others are really tired of this one green dress that's so pretty. Julie told me it's because it was one of the beginning dresses and everyone had to wear it so many times that it got tiresome. It's pretty though!
Side view.
My. favorite. shoes. ever.
I'm trying tons of outfits with these! They're like, miniature L4TL boots! They don't have that slit in the back, they zip of the side!
Tan, the color that goes with a lot of stuff...
Fluffy! Yes, winter-y (though it feels like spring outside. pictures coming soon!) - I'm totally taking these on the ski trip!
Front view.
Aren't they just ADORABLE?!?!!

I love them so much! Thank you, thank you, thank you Sarah and Lucy!

Thanks so much for reading this! Totally go get those boots from Hobby Lobby, 'cause they're great. I got some pictures of Katie in them, but I'll have to show you those later!
P.S. And yes, I'm working on the signoff.


  1. What's your favorite color, Madi? For some reason I thought it was the same as L4TL's (Turquoise right?). Looks like a very nice birthday present! :)


    1. Pink! I LOVE pink! I love ballet, my camera is pink, my ph- I mean, one of my birthday gifts were pink, and I just LOVE pink! And of course, I love my bracelet - I'm posting about it soon, but I'll just let you know that I chose the pink and gray one. It's so pretty! THank you, thank you!

  2. I love those boots!! Did you get them from hobby lobby (Marigold Market?) I have some a lot like them. Here's the review if you want to read it.
    I always put the shoes on opposite than you have them, so that the zipper is on the inside of the doll's foot. It looks good like that though.

    1. I think so, 'cause there's a tag that says Hobby Lobby. I love them! I never thought about that, but I just love them any and every way! I had never found your blog before, so farewell so I can go follow!
