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…

McKenna Shoots For the Stars!

A review on the American Girl movie McKenna Shoots for the Stars

Hi Guys! This is my first movie review, so I'm going to be kinda critical.... BEWARE!!!!!
Overall, I loved this movie, but there were some parts that I didn't like as much. Duh!
First of all, Jade Pettyjohn plays McKenna, and she was really good. I love all the actors and actresses in this movie: they were ALL really good. They got into character. But, Jade looks NOTHING like the McKenna doll. Agh!
1. She doesn't have the same caramel colored hair as the actual doll, Jade's hair in this movie is a reddish blonde curl...
2. I think they could've done better (the makeup section) (not the casting people).
Even this picture looks more like the McKenna doll! Here's the actual doll:
They don't look very much alike, other than the clothes. That's one part that I didn't enjoy: she has curls, while the doll has slick straight caramel colored hair. And, in the movie, Jade's hair has more of a red highlighted tint to it that the soft golden brown that the doll does. Other than that, though, I like her role and acting. She was a great fit!

This gorgeous young lady, Ysa Penarejo, played Toulane Thomas and did a wonderful job!

The movie itself was awesome: the gymnastics was amazing. And I would advise this to any AG lover or gymnastics lover!!! I'm not going to tell you about it, just rate it as a 5 star production.
