Out to Lunch

I made The Keeper feel pretty bad she didn't take me out last week, so when she and her husband had some time to themselves this week, they invited me along.

They took me to one of their favorite hangouts for lunch!

The Keeper had chicken quesadillas and they looked pretty good...

But I opted for a burger. It was awesome!

It was really a nice outing. I think they need to include me more often, don't you?

What did you guys do this weekend?

The best news EVER

Hey guys!
A few days ago, I was so mad at The Keeper.
Can you believe she went out without me!?
Something about "spending the day with just her husband." Whatever.

I can't complain too much though...She felt bad and I got a new outfit out of it.

I like it. It matches my eyes.

Yeah, I know...I'm not wearing shoes.
I avoid them as much as possible in the summer.

The Keeper also got me a new laptop.

I'm pretty excited about being able to write posts on the go now.

I was starting to forgive her with all my new gifts...
and then she told me The Best News EVER.

I mean seriously, this news has me so excited, I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep for weeks!

I get to go on a trip! And not just any old trip. I'm going somewhere special.
Here, I'll give you a hint...

Yep! You guessed it! In September, we're going to Disney World!
This is definitely the best news I've ever gotten in my entire dolly life.

Anyway, I'm off to plan and dream about my trip (and maybe find a Mickey Mouse shirt if I'm lucky.)

A Wedding!

I am so excited! Today I am going to a wedding!
I've never been to a wedding, but I imagine it's just magical.

Now, if The Keeper would just hurry up...I'd hate to be late!

Oliver's Story

This is Oliver.

The Keeper bought him a long time ago when she was just a young girl.
(And long before she knew what an "artist bear" was.)
She spent all her saved up money for him...$60 is a LOT of money when you're a kid!
She bought him at a craft show in Texas when she was on vacation.
Her mom thought she was silly to spend so much money on a stuffed animal,
 but she knew she had to have him.
When she looked into Oliver's eyes she knew there was more to him than there was with her other stuffed animals.
He was a Someone.

She loved Oliver very much and always treated him with great care and respect...
But one day he developed a hole right in the middle of his foot pad.
He was leaking pellets everywhere!
 The Keeper was so sad and so was Oliver.

The Keeper did the only thing she knew to do; she carefully placed Oliver in a bag and took him to her grandmother.
Her grandmother warned her that she didn't know how to properly fix him,
but The Keeper didn't care.
She said as long as his hole was patched, she didn't mind what it looked like.

Now The Keeper's grandmother is a very kind lady, but she is also a very busy lady.
 I suspect she put Oliver away and forgot about him.
He disappeared for many years and The Keeper lost all hope of ever seeing her dear friend again...

Until today.

The Keeper's grandmother found Oliver and repaired him right away!

Poor Oliver is very embarrassed by his patches. He thinks it makes him look ugly.

I told him he was being silly. I think his patches make him even more special.

We love you, Oliver...

...patches and all.

Happy 4th of July!

First of all, I'm excited to report that The Keeper's husband took pity on us
and bought an inexpensive camera to use until she can afford a nicer one.
It's really not a bad little camera, so I won't complain!

Our town did their big firework show last night.
I was so excited to go this year!
The best part? I managed to talk my best friend, Scribble, into going!
She hates leaving her work in the art room so I was thrilled she agreed to come.

We decided to get to the park early to get a good spot.


We decided to grab something to eat.
I went for a traditional 4th of July treat...

Scribble decided she needed something to beat the heat.
I told her she better eat it fast!

We spent some time together, just enjoying some nice conversation.

Then we decided to lay back, relax, and wait for the sun to go down.

Happy 4th of July!
Hope you guys are having a great day celebrating!

My dear friends,
I am so sorry for the delay in my postings!
I was so excited to start introducing you to all the resident dolls here,
but I ran into a temporary snag...
You see, my keeper's camera gave out on her and she says she simply doesn't have the money to replace it. It'll be September at least until we get a new one!

I hope in the meantime you will be satisfied with my Instagram pictures!

Today I am getting ready to go to a bridal shower tea party!
Doesn't that sound exciting?

What wonderful adventures have you been up to?
