Blogger Recognition Award!

I've been nominated for this award.



Shout Outs

The following wonderful bloggers nominated us for the Blogger Recognition Award:


What's Supposed to Happen



  • Tell how your blog got started and give a bit of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate bloggers to receive the award and notify them on their blog. No tag backs. (Sorry to the creator I am only nominating 6 bloggers.)
  • Post the Award, add it to your blog, and link back to original. (You can grab the picture by right clicking and saving as.)



Blog Inspiration

I guess it all started when my friend sent me a email that had a link to Fun with AG Fan. I checked out the blog and found very interesting. I started to think that maybe i would like to start a blog. So, with the help of my sister and a friend, I started my blog, and it's still going.

Advice to New Bloggers

Others have given the same or similar advice, but good advice is worth repeating. 
One piece of advice i would give to new bloggers is.....
When you start (well actually i still do this) go to other blogs and comment. Maybe in your comment say 'Hey, could check out my blog?' It really does work, and i wish you luck.

Who do I nominate?

Melody?

(Info and pictures from Doll Days and on American Girl Wikia)

Hey everyone, i just read on Doll Days that the new historical doll 2016 is an African american girl named Melody Ellison. Anyway so her 3 book covers have been leaked!
 'No Ordinary Sound' A Melody Classic Volume 1, is the first volume of Melody's series. It will be included with the Melody doll when she is released.
NoOrdinarySound

The first book is called 'Music in My Heart'
























The Second book is called 'Never Stop Singing'

They say that the doll, Melody, might have dimples, so that will be so cool! I can't wait to see her.

Here are some of the characters that are mentioned in her books.

  • Frank Porter: Melody's grandfather.
  • Cousin Tish: Melody's older cousin.
  • Cousin Charles: Melody's older cousin.
  • Valerie: Melody's cousin and best friend.
  • Bo: The Ellisons' family dog.

Friends and Other Characters

  • Sharon: Melody's best friend.
  • Diane Harris: A fellow member of the church choir
Personality and Facts
Melody's whole family is involved in music in some way.
Melody's family nicknames her Dee-Dee; her grandmother calls her "baby chick" (as she calls all her grandchildren chicks).
Melody, along with singing, likes gardening.
Hope you enjoyed the info!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2016 is finally here which also means that Lea Clark is now here!!!!!!!!!!! I came home yesterday! It feels really good to be home! My little sister had gotten into all my doll stuff and that took along time to clean up. #siblings On the way home my mom stopped by Label Shopper and we got to shop, and that was so much fun. Then when I got home, my grandparents and my BFF and her family were there to welcome me home :) One sad thing is that i can't play sports or recess for about 4 weeks! Noooooooo! My BFF came over today and we painted our nails and ate food! Well, that sums it up for now! See ya soon :)
