She Was an American Girl

Sadie says, “Good morning!”

She also kindly requests that you all send her packs of chicken jerky, but I told her not to hold her breath on that one.


I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!

I just checked the weather and apparently evening thunderstorms are expected in our area which makes me oddly happy. I love nighttime rain! It makes being lazy on the couch feel perfectly justified.

I think I may have to make a crock pot dinner this evening to go with the lazy and cozy theme!


Breakfast this morning included two breakfast staples.

Two whole wheat waffles plus two fried eggs seasoned with salt and pepper.

Syrup was added to the waffles once the eggs were consumed. Syrupy eggs just don’t appeal to me. (This coming from the girl who loves egg and jelly sandwiches…)

American Girl

Yesterday I received an awesome catalog in the mail.

American Girl!!!

Okay, so it wasn’t sent to me exactly (it was addressed to the homeowners of our rental house), but it landed in my hands and nostalgic feelings filled my heart.

I used to love American Girl dolls.

I was the proud owner of Samantha.

I received her as a very special gift when I was younger and cherished her! 

For those of you who may be in the dark about American Girl dolls, they are dolls that were first created in the 1980s that portray girls living in various times throughout American history. The dolls are sold with books detailing their random adventures.

I loved my Samantha doll and remember feeling so excited when the American Girl catalog would arrive in the mail.

One thing I remember about Samantha? I thought she had the most beautiful hair, but it took me years to finally take the bow out of her hair and actually play with it. I was so worried I would ruin her fancy ‘do that, in retrospect, really wasn’t that fancy.

Question of the Morning

  • Was there a certain toy you absolutely loved when you were growing up?
  • Did you ever own an American Girl doll?
