School Time!

Hi everyone! It's Rebecca again! Well it's been one week now since I've been in my new home. I'm still loving it! My Dolly Mom is so great, that I didn't even argue with her today when she told me it was time for school. Well, I knew I wasn't actually going to school, but since a new school week had started, it was time for me to dress the part. Here I am in my "School Outfit"!

I really like this outfit! The sweater is such a pretty blue color. It is nice and soft! It also matches the picture on the front of the second book in my historical series, "Rebecca and Ana" about me and my cousin. My Dolly Mom read the book and said she loved it!

My Dolly Mom did say that the bow that came with this outfit was difficult though. It came in one long ribbon and she had to tie it in a bow and attach it to my hair using a bobby pin. She wished that it came already tied into a bow with it's own clip.

Here is my dress without the sweater.

The boots are really great too!

Well, I better start studying since now I have the perfect outfit for it!

Maybe someday my Dolly Mom will get me my School Lunch and Accessories (hint...hint...:-)

Hope to see you soon (when I am not at school that is!) :-)

Shopping Therapy and Enjoying Nature!

Hi again! It's me Rebecca! Although Friday had really nice weather, the weekend was rainy and rather dreary. I was sort of disappointed with it being my first weekend out of the box. :-(
My Dolly Mom said that I needed some "Shopping Therapy" to boost my spirits. So we went online and decided to order some new things.
I actually really needed this item. It's a hair pick for my hair. The brush I have works fine and my Dolly Mom knows how to style my hair so it looks really pretty. However, it appears that this pick may make styling my hair even easier. I guess we'll see!

We also decided to order two dresses that were great deals on sale! They were 50% off the original price!
First we purchased this "Brocade Holiday Dress"

We also chose this "Sweet School Dress"!
I know the two dresses are not part of my historical collection, but I really enjoy dressing as a modern girl too. Plus, who can pass up such great deals?
Later on Sunday, the weather cleared up a bit and I was able to go outside. I saw some pretty daffodils!

I also saw what I think might be mini lilies. (Not actually sure of the accurate name for this flower???)

I also met some fun frogs! Of course, they are not real frogs, but they were still fun to see!

Despite the weather, all in all, it was a great Sunday! Talk to you soon!

Casual Friday!

Hi again! I've been having fun in my new home. Here I am, just stopping to smell the flowers!

Here I am outside again. Can you tell that I am smiling even more than I was the other day?

My Dolly Mom told me that since it's Friday, I can be more casual and time travel to the present day. She picked out this pretty floral top and denim capri outfit for me to wear. I LOVE it!

I decided to add a hat from the American Girl set that my Dolly Mom bought at the store the other day. I know it doesn't exactly match my outfit, but I think it makes me look so cute!

I'm having so much fun and looking forward to the weekend! I'll talk to you soon!

Meeting New Friends!

Hi! It's me Rebecca! I'm back again to tell you more about life in my new home!
Yesterday when I arrived, I met one of the other American Girl Dolls who live at my home. Her name is Marisol and she told me she was the Girl of the Year in 2005. Wow! That was a long time ago, but she still looks great! She welcomed me to my new home and said she hopes we can be good friends. I hope so too!

My Dolly Mom says that Marisol looks a lot like me. I have to agree. We have the same shape face and the same color hair. However, Marisol's skin is tan and her eyes are brown. My Dolly Mom says even though lots of dolls may look like me, I am still very special and unique. No other doll is just like me! :-)

Today I met the rest of the American Girls who live in my home. They said they recently all got dressed up in their original meet outfits that they came with so they would be ready to "meet" me! It will take awhile for me to remember all their names and get to know them. My Dolly Mom says I can spend some play time with one of them each week so we can get acquainted. I'm looking forward to that. Here is a photo of all of us together. I was really excited to meet them!

More adventures with my new friends are coming soon. I can just feel it! Talk to you later!

My First Post

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I'm an American Girl Doll! I am so happy because today I was bought from a store and brought to my new home. I'm so excited to be out of the store and with my new family! Here I am in my box when I first arrived. Can they hear me asking them to let me out? I can't wait!
Here I am with the lid open. You can see the book that I came with.
Finally! I am out of the box! It feels so good to be free!
Here is a close-up of me! Can you see the happiness in my face?
My new Dolly Mom also bought my accessories.
Here I am wearing them!
My Dolly Mom also bought my Lace Dress and School Outfit. I haven't tried them on yet, but I hope to soon!
She bought me some modern clothing that was not part of my collection, but I love it too! I'm looking forward to time traveling to the present day and being a modern girl from 2014!
I also got a cool pair of sunglasses. I know they don't go with my historical outfit, but I couldn't resist trying them on. I think they make me look like a move star!
Hope to talk to you again soon and tell you more about my dolly adventures! Love, Rebecca
