Anyone besides me and @HeadshipRegent have AGs? 

As I said over in the JRod thread, I have a gang of *ticks on fingers* 21. I think. Yeah, it's 21. 

In order of appearance in the house:

Marisol "Mari" Campbell (Marisol Luna, Girl of the Year 2005)
Elyse Joubert (Truly Me #49)
Eden Duarté (Adora Friends Wicked Witch of the West)
Gracie Mae Edwards (Marie-Grace Gardner turned modern with a hair-straighten and pincurlectomy)
Zoë Williams (My Twinn Adopt-a-Friend who has had an eyeswap and new wig)
Kanani Akina (Kanani Akina, Girl of the Year 2011)
Caroline Abbott (Caroline Abbott turned modern by straightening the ringlet curls of doom)
Quinn Delaney (My Twinn Adopt-a-Friend with a hilarious misaligned eyebrow that makes her look like she has resting bitch face)
Maryellen Larkin (Maryellen Larkin, has stayed historical)
Abeni Odom (Truly Me #47)
Siobhán Luna (Truly Me #46)
Imogen Brady (Maplelea Taryn)
Addy Walker (Addy Walker, has stayed historical)
Lea Álvarez (Lea Clark, Girl of the Year 2016)
Tamaya Qupac (Our Generation Tamaya)
Rebecca Sevier (Saige Copeland, Girl of the Year 2013)
Sonali Matthews (Best friend to Chrissa Maxwell, Girl of the Year 2009, and released as part of her collection)
Willemina Vogel (Maplelea Brianne)
Nanea Mitchell (Nanea Mitchell, has stayed mostly historical)
Cai Forsyth (Truly Me #4 with Samantha's wig... this is going to change)
Vada Morales (Grace Thomas, Girl of the Year 2015)

As for girls I want? I still have a freakin' list, even if I don't have the room.

American Girl-wise, I want this year's Girl of the Year, Luciana Vega (and she ALMOST came home from Seattle with me, let me tell you internets), I want Kaya'anton'my, and my last truly GRAIL doll I want is Cecile Rey. (I kinda have a deep love of the Sonali facemold). If I ever get caught up financially, I have a plan to make a Create Your Own doll in a dark-skinned Addy mold with a red pixie cut and blue eyes.

Other brand wise, Our Generation put out this GORGEOUS new Beekeeper doll and I fell in love the moment I saw her picture. Here. Gawk in awe. Those freckles!!! Irregardless of space, she's coming home the moment I find her. I also want Maplelea's Saila, cause she's stunning.

I love your doll's names! I don't have any AG dolls, but I have some of their STUFF. If I had unlimited money I'd have every piece of furniture and accessory in the store. I was just really enjoying the Airstream camper, and especially it's outdoor cooking accessories. Some of my doll-collecting friends do have AG dolls, and so we go to the American Girl store a couple times a year. I especially want the typewriter, right now. I think my 1/3 scale archaeologist/author needs it for his desk. Which I also need. So many projects, so little time.

That Airstream is AMAZING. I love it so much. If I only had the room...

Also, Nanea's shave ice stand is adorable.

My daughters have them, and I live vicariously through them and buy all the things.  Thankfully, my husband doesn't complain.

I’m not a doll collector, but I have an our generation doll for sewing purposes - friend’s daughter, has one so I check sizes and fit on mine before sending clothes for the doll (with matching outfits for the person). My Pinterest is creaking at the seams because I’ve pinned so much stuff for 18” dolls!

I know it's been FOREVER since anyone posted here, but I figured I'd necropost this thread because...

I have TWO American Girl dolls on the way!

This past weekend I got to hang out with my friends again finally, and we masked up and went to the American Girl store. I was good and did NOT buy anything, but everyone else did, including two of them buying dolls. I kept saying "I really want one, but I don't $110 want one right now..." 

Then I went on shopgoodwill.com and there are tons there. So for just over $80 shipped I have Julie and one other I can't ID yet on the way to me, plus some clothing that comes with them. It includes Julie's outfit with the flared two-tone jeans and peasant top! 

I really like Julie as-is, I think. The other one I couldn't get a good enough look at but she seems cute. Unless she's stunning in person (or somebody rare, which is unlikely) I'm thinking I might try customizing her. I'm looking forward to having them around to dress and display, since the resin dolls are kept away from light behind curtains.

Turns out I got Julie and Nicki! They need a scrub and Nicki’s hair is a bit rough on the ends, but they are in very good condition for used played-with dolls!

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
