Last Saturday (Feb 2) was Daynie Muffin’s 8th Birthday! EIGHT people!! Where does the time go??
I decided to surprise her with a trip to the American Girl store to pick out her very own doll!
I rounded up some fun friends & made it a girls trip!
I wish muh girl over at busy bee + the beard could have made the trip too!
That’s okay…we have some road trips on the horizon with Hippie Santa & the Gnomester.
We strategically packed up my white chariot..& hit the road!
long exhausting day of travel an hour and a half we decided it was time to get our Mexican on & stuff our face holes with MexHikano goodness.
When we finally made it to the AG store…to say these girls were excited is an understatement! They were not amused they had to stop for a photo op!
WELCOME to the American Girl store..home of the overpriced & overrated! Every little girls dream…every mom’s nightmare!
When we first got inside we made the whole crew take a bathroom break…where we saw these on the stalls…
Yes…that would be to hold their dolls while they tinkle. O.M.G.
Off to find “the perfect doll that looks like her”
$120 later…mission accomplished!
Next..we headed up to the salon to get her dolls ears pierced..a gift from one of her friends!
It was a little disappointing that they didn’t do it in front of her & make a big production..like the hair salon. The girl just grabbed the doll & went through a door to the back & reappeared not 30 seconds later & handed the doll back. None the less Daynie was ecstatic!
The store is HUGE! Way bigger than I was expecting!
We also met up with muh sista & her girls for a hot minute while we were there!
After this pic…we were all ready to go…Daynie just HAD to go to the bathroom! She could NOT hold it a second longer! And when we got in there…I figured out why…
Fun times at AG..the girls didn’t want to leave!
And then this happend:
Avery is actually an awesome little gymnast! They have a whole collection of her hand stand pics. I thought this was a totally adorable addition!
Then of course…monkey see monkey do! All the other girls joined in on the tricks!
Kendal & Kinsley (her doll)
Daynie & Ginger started out with the splits…but then Daynie realized it’s been a little too long since she’s done them & couldn’t make it all the way down. LOL So she moved on to the back bend.
Issa & Avery is in the background.
And YES YA’LL…this is all taking place right in front of the AG store. WE BE COOL MOM’s LIKE THAT!
A unanimous vote by
everyone the girls was made to skip the mall & head to the hotel for some SWIMMING!
The magic buttons of awesome:
I think the girls loved the pool almost as much as the AG store! They had it all to themselves & had a blast!
While the girls were swimming…me & another mom went upstairs to put together a little surprise & wait on the pizza guy!
There was a mixup with the room at the hotel…we were supposed to have a two bedroom suite that had a kitchen & table..ect…but SOMEHOW our room was given to someone else even though I reserved & paid a month before! Ugh! ANYWAYS…the hotel gave us adjoining rooms. But because there was no table we had to improvise! I think it worked out ok!
I got the American Girl party accessories here. The cupcakes were from Walmart. Big ones for the girls & mini ones for the dolls. I love that I was able to order place settings & goody bags for the dolls too!
While we were setting up upstairs…this was happening down at the pool…
DBJ..Don’t be jelly muh friends are more awesome than yours!
We chowed down on some pizza & then the girls swam some more while the grown ups at “grown up time”
Then it was back to the room to PARRTAAAAY!
We quietly sang Happy B Day to Daynie…
And then she blew out her candles!
Then it was time to get our AG craft on!
I got tickled at how serious these girls were about their dolls! Especially Issa who layed out their clothes for the next day!
Daynie’s doll ready for bed!
The first thing the girls did when they got up the next morning was get their dolls dressed for the day!
Daynie was excited to show me the milk cartons. That’s the kind they have at school & she is obsessed with the cheesy jokes. She tells them to us when we eat dinner together & we just crack up!
We had a FLIPPIN AWESOME trip!
Daynie is still all about that doll too!
After nearly a week of begging…yesterday I took her to WM to spend her bday money on some stuff for her doll…
