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…

A Week in the Life of the DOTM, Madelon McCormick

 Madi's Musings (A Journal) - Day 3, January 18, 2017
Before we left, I brushed my teeth as though my life depended on it.
I paced nervously around the room...

I think it got on Light4theLord's nerves.
"Just sit down!" she told me.

I sat down.

For a few minutes, that is.

I squeezed my eyes shut. "I wish I could just get it over with." I whispered. I began pacing again.
I nearly jumped when I felt a hand on my shoulder. The assistant-lady-person told me to come on back.
Once back there, I sat stiffly in the starchy white chair.

"Just lay back and relax." The lady told me. Ha, are you kidding? Relax?!


I looked into the mirror... and found it wasn't as bad s I thought.

Well? Do you like my new braces?

"Oh, and don't forget your headgear." the orthodontist assistant lady handed it to me.
*facepalm* Noooooo!!!!
"Yes ma'am." I took it meekly.


Personally, headgear is VERY bothersome. Annoying. Frustrating. IN THE WAY. But anyways... on the way home we stopped and I got..
DELICIOUSNESS! And all because I got braces (lucky me!). I think I'll be on a sugar high. Cheesecake brownie, ice cream...


PERFECT for my almost numb mouth.

It. Was. Great. (and I didn't have to share!)

*cries* It's gone...
Well, tomorrow is just.. school. I might skip a couple days but still post 'cause my party is on Saturday and we have to get ready for it. I'm excited though! I've come up with something else I need - a camera bag! I'm really hoping to get my own blog. Name ideas?
So far:

Where the Sky is Always Blue
Here, There, Everywhere
 I'm also hoping to partner with Julie, Amy, and Light4theLord to make an Etsy shop this summer. THAT'D BE SO MUCH FUN! Anyways, I'll see you soon! Maybe not tomorrow or the next day, but soon! Saturday's party is in the afternoon, so I probably won't post pics for a couple days. I AM excited though! 'Cause I get to wear the traditional pink birthday girl dress! 
I'll do a Q&A soon!

  1. I hope you do start an Etsy shop Madi! That would be so neat!

    I hope your mouth feels better soon! I literally laughed out loud about the brushing your teeth like your life depended on it! I can relate! :D

    Also, I have a question for you- Will you tell us about your past on the blog?


    1. Katie, you're so sweet! I think it'd be fun. Thanks... it's still pretty sore. I'm currently living on mashed potatoes, smoothies, ice cream, and chicken soup. Light4theLord said it's only for a couple days (thank goodness!). :D I think everyone who has ever been to the dentist or orthodontist has done that at least once in their life! :D
      I've been thinking about that. I'm not really sure if I want to remember all of that, but I'm almost sure it'll be one of my first posts. Ya'll deserve to know, even if it is kinda sad. But I'm happy now! :D I love my new family!

  2. You've been nominated! Click this link to know more!

  3. Awesome! Madi looks super cute with braces. Also, I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award.


  4. Ah, braces! And the headgear...I really did not like my headgear - it had the neck strap AND a bonnet type strap. ARGH! So glad that is over. :) Take care of those teeth and braces!

    1. Ah, yes. I'm not sure I like it either. It's rather uncomfortable... :D Light4theLord has the one over the head. She says she thinks it's even worse. I will!

  5. Madi, you look GREAT in braces! I hope you feel better soon! I literally laughed out loud at "I got... DELICIOUSNESS!" XD LOL!

    Ooh, that would be so cool if you started your own blog, Madi! And an Etsy shop would be AWESOME! 😀😀😀


    1. Thanks! I'm feeling a bit better.. :D IT WAS! Well, I think I'm completely sugar-ed out. Cheesecake brownie, the DELICIOUSNESS, cheesecake, ice cream, chocolate (at my party), cake today, and I still have an entire box of dark chocolate Hershey kisses. I'm dying for tomorrow to come so I can legally have my own blog!! Yay! I'm really seriously thinking about that this summer!

    1. Thanks! I'm feeling MUCH better! Anyone with braces can relate! :D I'm glad you think so, because I'm not too sure of myself.. :D

  7. I have braces Madi so I can TOTALLY relate. Well, just another excuse to buy the ag Braces set! BTW, are you going to announce the DOTM soon? I probably won't get it, but if I do, I'd like a little time to prepare my posts. ;D

    1. Exactly! I think we're planning to soon. You are actually almost tied for first place, Paisley! I didn't think about that, but I'll make sure Light4theLord knows!

  8. I love Journal posts !!!! Are you going to more of Grace's journal soon ??????

    1. I'm so glad you like it! No, Grace left Dolls N' All early last year and returned to her home so her journal may or may not happen again. If it does, it'll be a while.
