Mini Adventure #12

Field Trip and Pizza Party


Felicity, Holly, Rebecca, 2 or more

First Stop

Look at all the cute little animals!
So cute!
Which is your favorite?
I don't know if I can choose. (pauses in thought) The monkeys.
The hedgehogs.
I like the kitty.
Do you see there are three ponies? One for each of us.

Second Stop

What a big bunny!
I wonder why it is sitting in a chick shaped nest?
I bet it's the Cadbury bunny!
(giggles)

Lunch

That was fun.
Yeah, it was!
All the walking really made me hungry.
Pizza and a hot dog?
I told you I was hungry.
(laughing)
Looks like pepperoni.
I love pepperoni pizza.
What do you think you'll do after lunch?
I think I just want to hang out and read.
Anyone for ice cream?
(laughing)

Xyra Notes
Hi! The treats above are all miWorld (2 Dairy Queen packs and the pizza pack). The foods in that line seem to be the right scale for the minis, but the other accessories are not as good. I found these at one of our local Targets, but haven't seen any miWorld there lately.

Hope you are having a nice day. Visit again soon.

Mooving Into the Family

Garnet Arrives

Kaya, Melody, both

What's that over by the lilac?
I'm not sure. Let's check it out.
(walking closer)
Oh, my goodness! It's a calf.
She's pretty! I wonder where she came from?
Such a lovely color.
So red, like a garnet.
That's a perfect name.
Yes!
I may call her Nettie.
(giggling)
Kirsten is going to LOVE her!
(giggling)
KIRSTEN!


Best wishes. Come again soon.

Happy National Dog Day!



Have you hugged your dog today?
Melody and I took ours outside to play.
We were bowled over.
It was so much fun!

You know, if you don't have a real dog...
You can still celebrate with a plush puppy...
Or by drawing a puppy.
Just have fun today!

Share Your Chair 2

Reader Photos Plus


Haley, Kaya, Kirsten, Lanie, Melody, 2 or more

Reader Favorites


Flo sent us a photo of Marie-Grace in her favorite chair.
Doesn't she look comfy?
Yeah, lots of space to stretch out.
I love her outfit!
So, Flo told us Marie-Grace's favorite chair is dad's leather recliner. It's the best place for watching cartoons and other shows...but only when dad isn't home.
(giggles)

Nonna sent Anna on her favorite chair.
It's a fold out like our green chair.
Yes, but has a wood base.
Nonna says this fold out is from Battat and converts from chair to lounger to bed.
I don't blame Anna for liking that one.
Yeah!

A New Favorite


I have to show you are newest chair. 
They've seen it before.
Not really.
It was in the Shakespeare's Secret review.
I know, but now they'll get to really see it.
Okay.
May I continue?
Sure, sure.
Thank you.

Okay. So we found this at a yard sale. An awesome overstuffed arm chair.
Super comfy. The pillow is attached so it doesn't get lost.
We need to get a foot stool and it will be perfect.
I hear Xyra has a few ideas on that!
Cool. 

Xyra's Note

We'd love to see more of your favorite chairs and invite you to send a photo with model and caption to melodyq2000@gmail.com  Personal information is never shared; just the photo and caption. :)

Best wishes!

Model Monday: Kirsten

Summer Fall


The official first day of autumn is September 23, 2015. That means we have just under 1 month of summer remaining. Not summer vacation (or holiday), but the actual season. At our house, we really try to hold onto that since Xyra says time flies too quickly we shouldn't rush even though the grocery stores have had Halloween candy out since the end of July. Anyway, I wanted to throw together an outfit embracing summer and fall. I hope you like it.

The Shoot
















Which is your favorite photo?

The Details


Yes, this is me, Kirsten and not Melody in the shoot. I borrowed her rectangle glasses (AG retired). Thought they'd look cool. The do, but they are also prescription. Luckily not strong enough to bother me, but I won't be borrowing them again. (giggles)

Haley's white meet outfit top goes with everything!

The skirt is from Silly Monkey. I love the colors and it fits well. We were recently window shopping Silly Monkey and found another awesome outfit. 

I chose the orange flip flops from Ivy's Rainbow Romper (AG retired). They bring out the orange in the skirt.

The OG Boho Beauty belt is perfect with this outfit. I should have grabbed the purse too, but it wasn't as handy.

Finally, jewelry. The bracelets are Lanie's from her accessories and garden outfit (AG retired). Melody lent me her watch from the Urban Accessories (AG retired). The wishbone necklace...Xyra found it in her desk and doesn't remember where it came from. (giggles)

Hope you enjoyed this installment of Model Monday! 

Stop again soon! Have a nice day!
