Meet Julie!


No, we didn't get yet another pet, lol. Julie is Kaylee's new American Girl Doll! A little while back, I won a amazing giveaway for an American Girl Doll and full wardrobe, so we decided to take a day trip to go the nearest store and let Kaylee pick out her own doll. (I am super late getting this post up; we actually went back in March.)


Surprised and excited to get a bunch of beautiful new doll clothes in the mail.

After weeks of anticipation, and a long car ride, she finally gets to pick out her new doll friend!

The AGD store is such a magical place for a little girl who loves dolls.

Too excited to decide which one she wants, lol.

Finally made a decision.

She picked Julie, the doll from the 70s. She came with a book called 'Meet Julie' and we also got her pet bunny and some hair supplies.

She wanted to take her out of the box immediately, of course.

Very eager to get her new doll friend home and read all about her!

She wanted to change her into this outfit as soon as we left.

This outfit was part of the giveaway and was made by Eden Ava Couture. Kaylee said it made Julie look "sooo famous."

Julie's pet bunny, Nutmeg.

So cute.

Kaylee didn't understand why he would be named Nutmeg, since real nutmeg is apparently stinky and gross. xD

We read a couple chapters before bed and Kaylee hangs on every word. She loves that Julie has a history and personality and everything. We need to order the rest of the books asap though; I really don't want to read this one over and over, hahah. 

Watching a movie with Julie.  (Frozen, of course!)

We were trying to think of something special to cheer Kaylee up after she was in the hospital for meningitis, and getting Julie was just the thing! 

Kaylee loves dressing Julie up. She got so many outfits from this awesome giveaway that we had to get a wardrobe just for doll clothes! This beautiful outfit was made by xoxo Grandma.
