// Golden Days //

Featuring Miss Parker and random lines from Panic! at the Disco’s “Golden Days”.

Oh don’t you wonder when the light begins to fade?
And the clock just makes the colors turn to grey

Forever younger growing older just the same
All the memories that we make will never change

We’ll stay drunk, we’ll stay tan, let the love remain
And I swear that I’ll always paint you

Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!

I bet they never even thought about
The glitter dancing on the skin

The decades might’ve washed it out
As the flashes popped like pins, hmm

In the summertime
In the summertime

Time can never break your heart
But It’ll take the pain away

Right now our future’s certain
I won’t let it fade away

Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!
Golden days!

It was really gorgeous this evening, so I took Parker out to the treehouse and snapped some photos in the dying light. I love flower crowns, and Parker looks lovely in hers. I like how the yellow stands out against her hair.

I balanced Parker on a tree branch for some of the pictures. That was kind of terrifying. She didn’t fall off, though. I guess balancing dolls on uneven surfaces is a skill I’ve acquired over three years of blogging. 😉

How do Titles Even Work

I took these pictures when we got some snow earlier this year. And as I have absolutely zero motivation, I never got around to posting them. But on this dull Sunday (I kind of hate Sundays, but we won’t get into that right now), I finally overcame my laziness and put together a post for you, my lovely readers. 🙂

I know I photograph Savannah too often, please don’t hurt me.

Yeah, I stood in the middle of the road to take this picture. It’s true, I lead a dangerous life.

Have you guys gotten any snow this year? It snowed this weekend, but it was only about two inches, and melted pretty quickly. Honestly, I like watching the snow fall more than I like playing in it. It’s so peaceful and relaxing.

Sidewalk Chalk

So I haven’t posted since January . . . sorry about that. I don’t even have a good excuse. I just haven’t had many ideas, and when I do get one, I can’t find the motivation or energy to pull it off. But I finally took some pictures this evening, and even though they’re a bit blurry for some reason, I wanted to share them anyway.

I really like doodling with sidewalk chalk. Sadly, any art skills I might posses don’t seem to transfer to chalk, so my “art” looks like child’s scribbles. But I had fun doing it, and I guess that’s what really counts.

Parker still doesn’t have a personality. I haven’t thought about dolls very much since January (which is how I ended up missing the news that Tenney, Logan, and Felicity had been released).

I’m so sorry for the huge break I took these past few months. Blogging is something I really enjoy, and I don’t plan on quitting.

New Girl

I really was not planning on buying another doll. But as I do not have much self-control in the AG store, a new girl came home with me yesterday.

Please welcome Parker (#40) to the HHOAG family.

I haven’t quite figured out her personality yet. But I believe she’ll be fourteen, with a love for the paranormal. I’m not entirely sure, though.

I almost got #64 instead, but I fell in love with Parker’s short hair.

I also bought the Tropical Print Dress from the new mix-and-match set.

My dad bought the Blue Sandals for me.

Would anyone like a review of her? Maybe a comparison between Parker and Ivy?

I got a pink hoodie and jeans.

And the Geo-Print Shorts.

That’s all I got at the D.C. store. I’ll probably do some reviews.

Anyway, please welcome Miss Parker.

Christmas Eve

I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve already! I also can’t believe that I didn’t ask for any American Girl stuff this year. I’m just happy with my collection at the moment. The only dolls I’d really like to buy are Felicity and #64.

Anyway, I took some pictures of Ivy by the Christmas tree. Enjoy. 🙂

I was playing around with the settings on my camera and got these two shots.

Are you hoping to receive a doll tomorrow? If so, which one?

I absolutely love Savannah’s new beanie and knew that I had to get some pictures of her wearing it. I’ll be posting a DIY for it soon.

My dad cut down a tree in our yard. It looked pretty neat, so I decided to take the photos there. The branches bounced up and down as I walked over them and the wind kept pushing Savannah over. But I still managed to get some photos.
