Goodbye, 2015.

Why hello.
Happy New Years!  Am I the only one who can't even comprehend that 2015 is already over?! It just doesn't make sense. This year has raced by like American Pharoah. (Horse reference... Let me know if you understood it.) A ton happened this year. For one thing, I started this blog. I started this blog in late Febuary. That means this blog has been around for... Let's see... NINE WHOLE MONTHS! What in the world? I've come so far in these months. All thanks to YOU! Thank you so so much every single one of you.
Another awesome part of this year: I got Tuesday!!! For those of you who don't know who that is, she's my horse. Otherwise known as my pride and joy. You have no idea how OVERJOYED I was when I finally after YEARS of dreaming of having my own horse, I got her. It happened so fast! Suddenly, my dream had come true. Now, although I'm still having trouble with her, because to be honest, she can be a bit much for me to handle, I will never regret buying her. She is literally just... *sigh* Tuesday is my dream horse.
I also moved! Moving was a huge thing for me, another great, wonderful, unbelievable thing. When my parents divorced, things were complicated. We lived in a house that was supposed to be temporary, but for lots of personal reasons, we stayed for 6 years. That may not seem like long, but I was 5 when we moved in. When we finally left, I was 11. There's a big difference there. Our new house is literally what we have all dreamed of. We have 4 acres to run around on, a fireplace for winter nights, a nice fenced area for our Labrador, a big game room, everything we ever wanted. I am  endlessly grateful for our house, I love it!
Oh and, I started middle school! That was tough, but it's getting better! I'm trying to make new friends, and my grades are staying great. My teachers are really nice, and school is starting to be kind of fun! Middle school is certainly not what I expected, both in bad and good ways. But that's ok. I'm sure it will get better.
Overall, this year has been really, really great. Tons of awesome things have happened, and I loved it. I hope that 2016 will be even better. I cant wait to see what this next year holds.

Chat With Me!

I'm on another boring road trip.
Wanna chat with me? I think you all know how to do this by now. I hope I get some participants! I'm awfully bored.
Conversation starter: What did you get for Christmas?

Christmas Dresses

Hello there.
So umm, let's ignore the fact that I haven't posted in a month.
Last week I had midterm exams. I did pretty good. Two 100's in Reading and World Cultures, plus all my other tests were A's, excluding Math, which I got an 82 on. I got the highest score on my English exam, with a 96. Do you guys have to take midterm tests?
Today I'll be posting my doll's Christmas dresses. So uh, here's the pictures.

First up is Molly looking adorable in Emily's Christmas dress. She's wearing some white tights along with plain black shoes.

Next is Emily in a Frozen-inspired "Elsa" dress I got for Christmas last year. For shoes she's wearing Molly's ice skates, which I think are pretty cute.

This photo is not of best quality, but anyway, this is Saige. She has a cherry print dress on, along with some short grey boots with fringe. Not the most holiday-like, but she still looks darling.

Kit is in her own dress. (Which I adore!)

I absolutely love Ruthie's outfit! She is wearing Isabelle's rosette leotard, tights, and tutu, with some silver flats. This is just sooo cute! :)

I love Isabelle's too! She is wearing her Sparkly Dress, with a cute silver hair clip and Kit's slippers... (I was running out of nice shoes by now.)

Ugh... Such a blurry picture. My photography skills are extremely rusty, my apologies. This is a dress from a local doll boutique. It's very pretty and I like the red, it has a holiday feel to it.

This is NOT a good angle... But anyway, Gwen is wearing another dress from the local boutique. I love the design on the skirt. ;)

And that's all! I hope you enjoyed this post! Please comment who's holiday outfit you like best!

Quick Question

Hey guys, quick question,
How many of you would like to see a Sunshine Dollies Instagram? Idk if any of you have Instagram... But if you do, and you'd like to see my dolls on there, let me know! I think it'd be really fun to have a doll Instagram, because then I could post quick pictures on there when I don't have time to type out a full post. (Which I often am.) What do you think? Would you like it if I made a Sunshine Dollies Instagram?

P.S: Nobody has entered in Dolls With Style! I guess a lot of you are just, but I was a little disappointed. The theme was Sweater Weather if you'd like to do it now.

Edit: Got one! @TheSunshineDollies

What's Up? - November

So, I've come up with a new post I'll be doing called "What's Up?".  This will pretty much be a summary of anything interesting or significant that has happened throughout the month. I'll be doing this one in no specific order, just stuff that happened that pops into my head. I'll probably stick Kathryn's "A Tea and a Read" in here somewhere too.

First random thing that happened, I fainted. I was getting a bunch of vaccinations, 4, and apparently one of them had a side affect of "light-headedness". I was fine at first, but then on the way out of the doctor's office, I started to feel dizzy. I sort of mumbled, "I feel funny." and next thing I know I'm laying on the floor with a pack of nurses staring down at me. That incident has earned me the nickname, "Fainting Goat" from my older brother.

I got detention. I didn't do anything horribly bad, I was just late to my science class. That landed me in a room with a bunch of really creepy 8th grade kids. I'm not even joking, they were horrid. You wouldn't even believe how awful those kids were. Once, a janitor walked by, and someone crumpled up a sheet of paper and THREW IT AT HIM. And then, like 5 minutes before the end, another guy got up and said, "This is stupid, I'm done." and he just walked out, while the teacher screamed at him to sit back down. I didn't even realize people like that even went to my school! That was the most miserable hour of my life.

Earlier this week, my cousin Olivia flew in for a visit. We're really good friends, (We call each other "Frousins".) and so I was really happy to have her around. Here's a link to her DeviantArt account: Click Here

This was just yesterday, me and Olivia found a lizard on the window in her grandma's house. We caught him and kept him for the day. It was so cool! He was actually REALLY CALM! He walked around with him on our shoulders and when we couldn't hold him we kept him in a little terrarium thing. We named him Raptor, because his head reminded me of a velociraptor's. We think he was a "Green Anole" because he could change from brown to green.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving! Woo hoo! I spent the day with Olivia at her grandma's. We ate turkey and potatoes and pumpkin pie and green beans and cookies and... well, just a ton of food. It was pretty fun!!!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells, fa la la la la, la la, la, la.
Ok, so Christmas didn't pass yet, but it's just around the corner! I'm looking forward to the music, the lights, family, a break from school, decorating, our Elf On The Shelf "Macy", and once again, FOOD! Ha ha! ;) Who else is excited for the best holiday ever! Of course, that is, if you celebrate Christmas.

A Tea and a Read
Currently drinking: Just a plain glass of ice water

Dolls With Style: 1

Have you seen Bella's new link-up, Trendy Moment? It's super fun! There's a weekly theme, (sparkly, cowgirl, etc.) and you have to create an outfit based on that theme! I figured, it'd be super cool to do a doll version of the game! My doll version of Trendy Moment will be called Dolls With Style. Once again, full credit of the original idea goes to Bella. Now, are you ready for your theme? This round, the theme will be... Sweater Weather! Here's our example:
Please excuse the low-quality photo.
Isabelle is wearing a red sweater from Grace's City Outfit, thick grey leggings from an AG winter set, and AG black boots.
Now hurry to go find your "sweater weather" outfit, snap a picture of your doll wearing it, do a blog post on it, and comment a link to you post! It's super fun and quick, this only took me about 15 minutes! Have fun with it, I hope you'll participate!!!

Life In The Saddle

While I'm not super active on this blog, I am going to be posting quite a bit on another blog! Go to my horse blog, Life In The Saddle! I'll likely be posting there at least every other day. Right now I only have 4 followers on that blog, but I'm hoping some of you will go add yourselves to the four! It just got an awesome design by Kathryn at In The Depths Of Dreams. (She also did The Sunshine Dollies and Wild Among The Flowers.) She did a wonderful job, much better than I could ever do! So, go to Life In The Saddle to see more posts from me, and to check out the great design Kathryn did!

Ramblings, Updates, and...Other stuff.

Here I will pour my random thoughts over the past two weeks that have made me think, "I should post about this."

My Halloween was not the best. I was dressed as Maleficent, which was actually (in my opinion) a pretty cool and non-boring costume. I went to go trick or treating with my friend, and a group of her friends. We went to about 3 houses and then- BAM! It's pouring. We were two blocks away from my friend's house, so we had to walk through the storm, with water up to our ankles. My costume makeup was running down my eyes and by the end of the walk I looked like a zombie. Yeah, not the greatest day of my life.

Halloween Dance
So,  My friends convinced me to go to the school's Halloween Dance. It wasn't horrible, I mean, it could have been much worse. I danced at the beginning even though they kept playing songs like whip-nay-nay-whatever that everybody but me knew the dance to but me. After like 30 minutes, I just stood in a corner and ate cookies while everyone around me socialized. It was pretty fun though.

Yeah, odd subtitle, I know. I think I'm getting a cold. I'm all stuffy and bleh and bleh. Got a nasty cough too. I'm just really congested.
Also, my friend Brea from that post I did way back in April, (this one) Is dealing with her kidney cancer again. I hope and pray she'll be alright!

So I may or may not have posted about this but there have been 3 cats hanging around at my house. They're feral, but they are slowly getting used to us.
One of them died. He was a little black and white kitten. He climbed into my mom's car's engine and well.... you can guess what happened. I was really, really upset at first, but I'm ok now. Rest in peace, nameless kitten.
The remaining kitten's mother sort of left her. After her first kitten passed away she just left and din't come back.
We trapped the last cat yesterday. We had her in a little dog cage and were feeding her. She actually calmed down after a while and would tolerate us petting her. She even purred a little. <3 We let her go last night, and she's been hanging around on the porch, though she won't allow anyone to approach her.

On the subject of blogging, er... Don't have much to say. I'm not posting much just cause of school and such, but I'm not on break or anything. Go check out my latest fav new blog here: Riding In Style.

Lastly, how are you doing? What's been happening? I would like you to compare your past week or two to the following:

A type of weather
A food
A drink

Mine would be: Cloudy, Bagel, Unsweet iced tea.
It's just been sort of boring, not bad, but dreary and bleh.
Bleh is the word of the day.

Doll Halloween Costumes

Hey guys!
I think I'm fully back to blogging. I've been posting so little, and my dolls have been sitting in a corner, collecting dust. But-- I've realized how much I miss dolls, and blogging! So I'm back, and today I'm showing you my doll's Halloween costumes!! :)

I'm just now realizing that these photos are really blurry... Sorry about that! Anyway, Molly is dressed as a fairy, the dress and wings are from Build a Bear, and her candy bag is from her Halloween outfit. I think she looks really cute as a little yellow fairy!

Emily here is an ice princess! Her dress was made by a local doll clothing boutique, and her ice-skates  (Which I wish were shown!) are from Molly's ice-skating outfit.

Saige is up next! She is dressed as Princess Laya from Star Wars. (Sorry if I misspelled her name, I don't really know much about Star Wars.) I think this is cute, but I'm a little disappointed in how her hair turned out.

Kit is dressed up as a nerd. I love this costume! She is wearing Molly's glasses, Molly's meet sweater, some AG jeans that I have no clue what set they belong to. She is also holding a ribbon from the science fair set and has some plain converse-like sneakers on.

Ruthie is a ballerina! I love this costume as well! She's wearing Isabelle's tutu, Rosette Leotard, and Isabelle's pink tights. Her hair is in a high pony tail and I just think she looks adorable!

This is Isabelle, looking fabulous in her hula-girl costume. ;) She is wearing a grass skirt from Molly's Halloween outfit, a Hawaiian bracelet from the same outfit, and a swim top from an AG set that I forgot the name of, but you probably know what it's called. Cute isn't she?

Second-to-last is Grace as a equestrian, looking ready for her next horse show. This is all from an AG English rider set.

Finally this is Gwen, as er a-- Fail of me being clever. She is supposed to be a Black Widow spider. The red sweater is meant to symbolize the red markings on the spider's belly but umm... Well I tried on this one, ok? The mask and sweater are from Molly's Halloween Costume set, the shorts are from Grace's City Outfit, the jacket was in Isabelle's accessories, and her shoes are Molly's meet shoes. Do you think this is a hit or miss Halloween costume??

That was the last costume! I hope you enjoyed this post! Please comment and share what your favorite costume was! I just want to say thank you to all you wonderful readers and followers of my blog, you mean a lot to me. There would be no point of posting on here if no one read my posts! I have 33 followers at the moment and that's just... Wow. Thank you all so, so, much. Bye for now!

Defying The Laws Of Homework

Today is a great day.
I have defied the laws of homework.
In math we had the (rather easy, ;D) homework of writing 4 division word problems that used fractions or decimals. This is what I wrote.

Vacation Pics!

Here's some pictures I took yesterday! 

 This is the view off the hotel room balcony.
 Me on the boat.

We spent all yesterday on the water, fishing. Sadly we didn't catch anything. :/ oh well! I'm still having fun!

Chat With Me!

Chat With Me is here!
I suppose you already know what to do!
Comment away!
Ask me anything, tell me anything, I'll reply right away!
I'll be watching for comments and we can well, chat!!!
Have fun!

Discussion starter: Tell me something about you! It doesn't have to be amazing, just something interesting that you want to share!


I'm very happy right now. We're going for a weekend away, I can't say the exact place but it's in the U.S. and it's a beach. I'm hoping to get some nice photoshoots!
I wanted to bring Gwen but I'm not going to, because I left my doll brush and water spray at a friend's house a week ago, and I'm not going to risk messing her hair up...
However, I am bringing Kit! She was the perfect choice since her hair is super easy to fix without a brush!
Lastly, it's a 5 hour drive, so I might try and do a Chat With Me! I know though, that most people aren't out of school yet. (Me and my brother skipped school today, so we have time to drive.) Please comment on this post as you become available! Once I have a couple people I will start a Chat With Me!
Other than that... Thanks for reading this post! I guess I'll add... Hmm... Oh I got some new boots!

Since I'm on my phone (mobile blogger) the picture might show up in a weird place... That happens a lot. Sorry! They might look crazy colorful to some of you, but where I live there are worse boots than that. I refused to get any with rhinestones. Finally, to finish, don't forget about the Chat With Me!

So umm...
It's been over a week since I posted on here.
My main excuse is school...
Homework, specifically. I've had NO free-time at all, for the past 2 weeks. And at the off chance I get some, I just want to sit down and do nothing.
Do any of you feel like school controls your life, even when you're at home? Any tips on how to handle this? How I can balance schoolwork and still have time to do other stuff?

Autumn Breeze - A Photoshoot

A quick photoshoot-

So when I took these photos Emily wasn't alone in the tree...
I had to climb up there too,
and as difficult as it is to climb up a tree while holding a doll and your phone,
It's harder to get on.
I ended up clumsily falling out of the tree into a pile and leaves and then catching Emily as she fell after me.
Not fun.

The pictures turned out okay though, kind of. 
Honestly, Emily isn't that photogenic. She's pretty, but she just does not look good in photos!!! Bleh. Anywho, Sorry for my lack of posts. Just one word: School.

Favorite photo?

Promise I'm Alive!

Hey there.
I'm so sorry about my posts lately. My last photoshoot was like a month ago. It's just, I've been REALLY busy, I don't get out of school till 4, then I do homework and well... There's just not enough time in the day to fit a photoshoot it. By the time I've done my homework and chores after school, I have to eat dinner, take a shower, and go to bed. I really do nothing else. I'm trying, I really am, but I can't help that I get loads of homework! Just know that I'm trying to post, it's just not really working.

Sincerely, Tenley
