When The Going Gets Tough...


...the tough go shopping?
Today really felt like spring, but I wasn't quite ready for shorts yet, so I slipped on my favorite pair of jeans, from the Ready for Fun set. After school today Harriet and I were chilling out at her place when she got one of those new AG catalogs for us to look at. I wanted to see if I could find a new formal dress for the open house coming up. She had her eye on the new yoga outfit and the permission slips for summer camp -- which will be held at Pine Lake this year.
"What about the new Spring Party outfit?" Harriet said, eyeing the model playing the violin in the dress. "I think it would look real good on you, you know, bring out your eyes."
"I dunno," I whispered. "It's cute but a little too -- I dunno, too dressy. I'm talking about open house, not the prom."
"Right." Harriet nodded. Then she saw the new softball outfit and we both said "Kristy" in unison.
Kristy's still suspended from school because of that fight with Madisyn Baker a couple days ago, so I haven't seen her and neither has Harriet. And she's gotten to the point -- Kristy, that is -- that she still isn't talking to me. I tried calling her on the phone, and when the director goes to get her she screams and yells "I don't want to talk to her!"
So we looked through the new catalog to see what we liked, and to get our minds off of this crap. I decided I liked the new PJ set and Harriet wants to try yoga. Sometimes I think Harriet is from a different place and time.

I like the outdoor outfit. In California, winter doesn't last long, so its already time for shorts. Quinn likes the yoga outfit too. She's been doing yoga with her aunt for a little while now. The new party dress would be way to frilly (and tight!) for me. But it is kinda nice though, if you go for that sort of thing.

Hi, I've been reading your blog for a while....its nice (well...not nice, but its interesting and nice to read....is kind of what I mean.)
I'm Rose, a JLY #2. I have glasses too. I used to have the exact same glasses as you, but then I got new ones. We haven't gotten the catalog, but I hope we do soon! We've just looked at stuff online. We really like the bunk beds and the Camp outfit, too.

Oh Haley, how funny...yet right...you are!

That should be the motto for all AG dolls: "When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping!" Lol

YOU"RE GREAT!

A new catalogue already? We got a Chrissa pamphlet, but that was back in January.

It was feeling like spring last week, but now there is SNOW all over the ground. Yippee, just what I wanted!

I'm really loving that new yoga outfit, too.
