Madison’s 15th Birthday Party at the American Girl Store Dallas

My 15th birthday at the AG store in Dallas, Texas was by far the best day of my entire year.

I’ve just entered into a phase where I absolutely adore the color solid pink, so I literally squealed “it’s so pink!” about fifty thousand times throughout the day.

My best friends can testify. XD

In fact, I took this picture right as I squealed my first “it’s so pink!” of the day.

Next to pink, I’ll squeal over the American Girl star logo.


And the beautifully pink and girly Beforever sign.

This font looks like Butterfly Kids, but I’m not exactly sure what it is.

When I was editing this picture, I thought of a joke about it being my celebration day, but I edited these a month ago so I’ve forgotten it. XD

Everything is so pink and girly.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย Why can’t my mealtime surroundings look like this?

That’s actually a great idea. I’m going to find one spot in the house where I always have my meals and Madi-fy it.

There’s me and my two best friends!

This friendly young man challenged Ellie to a skateboard duel. Ellie would have loved to say yes… but she didn’t have a skateboard.

I took this picture right as my party was starting, and my mom and the waitress were like… where did the birthday girl go?!

I can’t even express how many times I squealed “it’s so pink and girly and pretty!” during my party.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

I need to make an American Girl menu and tell my mother what I’d like for breakfast off of it.

Notice Ellie’s party hat? They actually gave us the wrong kind of doll party hats.

Look closely… They gave us the Bitty Baby party hats!

This is my best friend’s doll McKenna…

And my other best friend’s doll Caroline!

In the back, you see our waitress Laura. She was super nice.

I’m a sucker for AG souvenirs. I kept the little ribbon elastic things that were used to hold the napkins together.

I have this picture as my computer background right now. It’s just so girly, pink, and it says American Girl on it. I couldn’t resist!

I’m such a little kid. XD

My best friend’s hand holding the pink lemonade: my favorite drink in the world.

About halfway through the party, I realized I had taken fifty pictures of pink lemonade but not one sip.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

My favorite appetizer ever. If you ever eat at the AG place, never pass up the pretzel bites! They’re amazing!

And because I’m such a nerd, I kept the AG logo paper that’s holding the bites.

For real.

Honey mustard sauce is my favorite dipping sauce in the world, and they had it! Cheese goes awesome with pretzels too, and they also had it.

I’ve never had a happier day.

Time for gifts from my best friends!

Thank you, my best friends ever!ย โค๏ธ

For my 13th birthday party in 2016, I actually asked the waitress if I could take the conversation starters home.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

You can’t.

But my best friends and my mom and I had fun using them until our food came.

I got the Butterfly Penne Pasta. It was so good!


Man, that hat. I proudly toted it all over the entire store.

(And I wore a pink shirt.ย ๐Ÿ˜)

I took home all the flowers in the ice cream, too. I now have, like, seven of them. XD

Here’s a cute hairstyle for dolls you can make with the flowers.

And my birthday gifts from American Girl! I’ll post about them (and everything I bought at the AG store) in the next post.

Our lovely waitress Laura! She was so nice and politely allowed me to take a picture of her.

That ended my absolutely perfect birthday party (besides strolling around the store and buying things).

After that, I played at my best friends’ house, then got Chick-fil-A (my favorite!).

I felt like God had given me a birthday present too, because I had so much energy and my knee felt amazing the entire day. With the amount of inflammation in it right now, I’m usually very fatigued all the time and unable to walk without pain.

But my birthday party was the most perfect day ever, and in the midst of a terrible summer vacation full of trials and having to trust God, I’ll forever look back on that day and smile, because it was just beyond perfect.

And pink.ย ๐Ÿ˜„

Coming up next: all my souvenirs and purchases from the AG store… plus a new mini member of the DWOD family!


Health update:

For all you amazing people who have cared so much, I’m sorry for the entire month without an update!

Because my body is battling arthritis, I have constant fatigue. Autoimmune disorders like arthritis are the hardest sicknesses to fight because your immune system is attacking your own body, and it’s extremely taxing.

I have tons of great ideas (*squeals excitedly*) and even a “secret” project I’ve been working on. (Check out theย new homepage to see the announcement! It’s called The DWOD Digest, but it’s not officially launched yet.)

Despite all the exciting plans I have, I just don’t have the energy to come back to blogging at the moment.

Thankfully, there are answers. I’m learning to relax and trust God and my parents as they care for me. Things are only getting better from hereโ€”I see a day soon where there is no more arthritis for me!

I’m coming back to full schedule just as soon as possible. It’s only a matter of time before my physical body gets the memo I’ve been labeled “messed up” for believing: Jesus is still in the miracle-working business!ย 

I’ll see you soon!

(Because obviously an update of my face was important too.)

    1) I don’t remember where/when, but my mom actually bought a set of those little conversation starters that came on a key ring! I don’t remember much though. . . we don’t have them anymore.
    2) I was going to have my tenth birthday party with my sister at the AG store, that had been our dream for so, so, so long! But, I was super duper sick, and so I couldn’t go D: I was really upset. I hope I can have another chance to do that, though, some of my friends still have AG dolls, none of them really enjoy them any more. D: (one is scared of them lol)
    Maybe I’ll have to invite Julia over to do that for a birthday sometime. . . *wink wink wink*

    I’ve never even BEEN to a proper ag store- just this tiny holiday one at the mall.๐Ÿ˜ž
    My new goal: maybe send you a birthday present next year. If I don’t forget. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
    Just turned 16 this August. โœŒ (panics๐Ÿ˜ฑ)
    Also I got my hair cut at a hair salon for the first time in my LIFE. It was cool. But I really had to trust the hairdresser because as soon as my glasses were off she could have cut my a mullet and I would be completely unaware.
    (Pssst, summer is oooooooveeeeer)
    (The heat doesn’t want to leave)
    (But summer vacation is over and that’s the point I’m trying to make)
    Most crazily,~Olive

    P.s. I need to come visit you and we can be absolute little kids together because why not.๐Ÿ˜

      Aww! โค๏ธ I always try to send gifts to my online friends too, but I seem to forget more often. XD

      Ooh, what does your hair look like?

      Well, technically we have like four more days. XD I’m both sad summer is over and excited for the majestically cool weather of fall.

      (Writer nerd moment: my family laughs at me because I casually described the weather outside as “majestic”, “adventurous”, and that it had a “breeze carrying the crisp promise of fall”. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

      P.S. Please do! I need someone to be a little kid with me! XD

        Well, it looks like how my mom cuts it, but improved. But it could just be me thinking that.๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I got it cut an inch or two above my shoulder, and then the edges naturally flip out, AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH THATS HOW I’VE HAD MY HAIR CUT SINCE I WAS-
        7??? 8??? I don’t even know….probably 8 or 9. My memory is a peice of cheese.
        And unfortunately I don’t get my hair cut as much as I’d like, so I seem to spend a lot of time with it just past my shoulder length, and the edges don’t flip when it’s that long.๐Ÿ˜•
        (Ahhaha, that’s funny.๐Ÿ˜†)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADI!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜„ *throws pink confetti*
    I’m sorry to hear about your arthritis. You should try seeing a natropath; they can be expensive, but really helpful! They talk about the things you eat and stuff, and advize you on what you should eat and not eat for now to help you. I know that helps my dad. (You can avoid things that will give you inflamation, and then slowly get to reintroduce them) (and sourdough bread is awesome; it’s different from other kinds of bread, and you can make it at home. There’s sourdough bread, sourdough french toast, sourdough waffles, and sourdough blueberry pancakes are amazing ๐Ÿ˜œ) (Natropaths also are great if you break any bones, like I did last December)

      YAY THANKS JULIA! *collects pink confetti*

      I’ve actually been to see multiple natropaths and have been on many natural protocols and elimination diets. So far no luck. I’m currently on another really gross, really restricted natural diet… we’ll see how this one works ๐Ÿ˜‚ I agree, though — I totally prefer natropaths to traditional doctors!

      Thanks so much again, Julia!

    I’ve gone to the store a couple times for my birthday, though we didn’t have the bistro dinner/lunch thingy. Also at the time the closest store was in America, 3-4 hours away. But now they built one in Canada in the middle of a bookstore that is closer so I’ve gone there more often.
    Great post! I always love the effort you put into your posts as you don’t rush to post them. I hope you knee starts to feel better and you can walk around pain free. Hey, if you ever need to exercise, ask your mom to make you a jug of pink lemonade and you have to walk from your room to the kitchen without stopping. There’s your motivation to exercise!
    I’ve never really been a pink girl. In fact, I don’t own any brightly colored shirts unless you count light blue. I’ve always been a black and white kinda gal. Anyway, I hope you start to get better and can work on your blog!

      Haha that’s genius! My doctor told me to swim to exercise, so maybe after I make a couple laps around the pool I’ll have earned some pink lemonade. ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Ooh, black and white are such dramatic color combos. I like ’em!

      I hope you make tons of new friends soon! When I moved states, I had a bunch of online friends to keep me company until I met some real-life ones. โค๏ธ

    Madi, so glad to you’re back! I read your blogging break post a while back, and I was curious to see how you were doing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your 15th birthday looked like a total blast! Pink is the best color ever. XD I’ve celebrated a birthday or two at the American Girl store, and it’s a pretty fun place for parties!

    Have you heard of Andrew Wommack? He explains the Word in a simple and down-to-earth way, and shares scripture to back up what he speaks. I personally have been blessed through his book and videos titled, “God Wants You Well”. There are so many other great teachings about God’s word on his website as well! If your heart is open to healing, definitely check him out! ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. LOVE the new blog look!

      (I apologize for the late reply!)

      Aww, thanks so much for stopping by! And hahaha yes, pink is the best. XD

      Ooh, I love Andrew Wommack’s ministry! I actually believe in divine healing and loved his God Wants You Well series; I’m just still walking my healing journey out.

      Thank you so much for commenting!

    Pink! I know this is waaaaay late but, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Iโ€™m glad your knee felt better during the party, it would have been the worst if it was hurting the entire time!

    You are always in my prayers!

      You know, that’s funny, because when we were little we used to call Chick-Fil-A “Chick-Fil-Ahh” (as in “ahh, how relaxing”) because Mom did it to be silly once and it just stuck. XD

The girls my age like to talk and they know my name but I don’t know All of there Names! ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ I’m sooo shy! I’m not really but… I don’t know. I have pen-pals but I don’t talk about things like this. I’m helping on Back Stage Crew This Weekend for the church play! It’s Anne of Avonlea!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ One lady at our church side for one play they turned away about 200- to-300 people!!!!! I think that was for Anne of Green Gables.!

      I totally get that โ€” it took me a long time to make friends when I moved too! Maybe you’ll be able to talk to that nice girl more often.

      And that play sounds awesome! I hope you have a ton o fun!

    I guess we’er friends in a way. We haven’t really talked about it, correction I haven’t really talked about it! But now she has a boyfriend that she liked, I like him too…he’s nice and cute.. but he’s hers’ now and plus he is 2 years older then me. At this church there are more boys my age…not like I haven’t talked to them. Because I haven’t talked to any boys…but one or two!! Not that it matters I mean I’m 15 and I’m thinking of being a police oiffcer so no room for guys antill I have my feet off the ground. ( I still haven’t really told my mom or dad, if ever! I kind of know the answer, “No way, Absolutely Not! Not happening!!” I’m still trying to come up with a way to have a answer for them. Not looking good. ๐Ÿ™ And being the only daughter/ girl in the family doesn’t help my case! ๐Ÿ˜ One reason not to faver the fact! ๐Ÿ™ There is other things out there but not what I want.

      I’m so sorry for my late reply to this, Janae! How are you doing now? I completely understand about the guy thing. No room for boys for me, either, until my career is in full swing!
