The Runaway Princesses Season 1, Episode 4

Hey readers... again. This is my second time posting today, I know I'm weird, but you'll be happy to know that this is the next episode of The Runaway Princesses! These photo haven't been watermarked at all so, I will please ask you to not COPY. Let's get started, because I do not have a lot of time to post.

  It had been a long day, and I had finally fallen asleep.

"Oh Elsa only if you were as powerful as the queen, then you could stop her", Belle taunted while Elsa was fast asleep.

Belle quietly pulled on her pajama's without making a sound, she didn't want to startle Elsa.

Belle walked over to her vanity, and placed a dull brown bobbie pin that kept a lock or hair out of her face.
I jolted awake, as a frightful image came into my head. I looked over and saw Belle fast asleep in her bed. "Okay, that was strange", I whispered, as I started to walk toward the kitchen.
I was going to grab a glass of water when something caught my eye.
The paper said:
X Ariel Kithens
X Emily Kithens
Isabelle Kithens
X Kirsten Kithens
X Kit Kithens
X Maria Kithens
X Rebecca Kithens
Ruthie Kithens
X Samantha Kithens
"Oh, no", I said as I dropped the paper..
I finally decided to go back to bed after I had partially recovered from what had just experienced.

 I pulled the covers up to my waist, and closed my eyes, however I did not fall back asleep.

 I heard Belle get up and walk out of the room.

 I sat up, continuing to listen to the sounds of Belle moving around.
 I glanced over at Belle's bunk, and noticed that she had indeed gotten out of bed. 
 I thought to myself, Belle, what are you up to?
I walked over to the enormous door that I had thought Belle had entered earlier. I hesitated, then without realizing it, I opened the door.

Faction Before Blood

Hey everyone it is June, I am finally going to post The Runaway Princesses today! I know I'll be posting two different things this morning, but this is important, so I have to get out of my brain. Today I am sharing my love of reading, Divergent, and American Girl all in one post, so it will be... AWESOME!!! I am headed back to school tomorrow so blogging is going to start slowing down just a bit. Before I forget what I am going to type, I'll start.
 This is a poster for my favorite book Divergent. If anyone doesn't know Divergent is a book about five different factions or cities in a dystopian society:
Abnegation: The Selfless/Feeds Factionless
Dauntless: The Brave/Protectors 
Erudite: The Intelligent/Scientists and Government
Amity: The Caring/Farmers
Candor: The Truthful
The main character, Beatrice  lives in Abnegation. Each year for every boy and girl at the age of 16, the city distributes an aptitude test, this test decides what faction they move onto. Three or more results mean that he or she is Divergent. That is the most I can summarize about the book, I don't want to give anything away!

In the poster Kit is supposed to be Beatrice, Kit is wearing all of the faction colors:
Abnegation: Light Gray or Beige- Kit's sweater
Dauntless: Black- Kit's shoes
Erudite: Blue- Jeans
Amity: Red and Orange- Kit's shoes
Candor: Black and White- Kit's Tank Top and kits shoes.
Faction Before Blood: Faction comes first.

So that is my poster for Divergent! Feel free to comment below! Please do NOT copy photo
Thanks for reading!

Yet Another Random Post

Hi! So, school starts on Monday for me and on Tuesday for June. This means that we will probably only post once or twice a week unfortunately. However, for a "celebration" of the last week of summer, I am going to post one ENORMOUS photo shoot with Lissie, Molly, Nicki, and Cecile. They'll be wearing summer-y outfits and the like. Anyway, just thought I would let you know so you wouldn't think we dropped off the face of the Earth or something ;). Also, June and I will post a very lengthy review on BeForever next week-end. Au revoir mes amies! (I'm in the mood for speaking French right now :))
Your very random blogger,
P.S. I thought I would give a sneak peek of my summer-y photo shoot. I didn't put our water mark on this photo so please don't use it without asking. :)

Be-You-Tiful Award

Cassie from Call Me Crazy nominated us for her new award, the Be-You-Tiful award! Thanks so much Cassie! Here are the rules for this award (we got this straight from Cassie's post. You can see it here.

  1. Draw or take a picture that represents (at least) 7 different things about you (your personality, hobbies, etc.) and explain it.
  2. Ask Ten Questions
  3. Answer the questions the person that nominated you asked
  4. Nominate somebody
Here is the photo I took:

I took this photo because:
~I love photography.
~Cecile is in the photo because my hair is curly just like hers, just a different color (you can see our look-a-likes on the "About Us" page.)
~Cecile is wearing jeans and a t-shirt because I despise wearing dresses and skirts. ;)
~The sewing machine represents my sewing machine in real life. I got this little one for Christmas many years ago, and it is a nearly exact replica of my sewing machine. I chose the sewing machine also because I love sewing. 
~The mini Felicity doll represents my love of dolls and American Girl. 
~The small quilt block hanging over the chair represents my favorite colors (lime green and purple :)) and also represents my love of sewing. 
~The book sitting next to mini Lissie represents my love/obsession for reading. (If you are wondering, the book is a mini Felicity's Surprise) 
 Now for my drawing/photo:

--I drew a picture because I love drawing! 
--I drew the American Girl star because I love AG!
--The girl in the drawing looks like me.
--My dress is light blue because that's my favorite color.
--The drawing of me is wearing a dress because I love wearing pretty dresses.
--Isabelle is holding the drawing because she represents my love of dolls and is my (kind-of) look-a-like.
--The girl in the drawing is reaching for the star like Sleeping Beauty reaches for the spinning wheel. I drew this because I love fairytales. 

Now for our answers to Cassie's questions!

1. What is your biggest obsession?
Ginny: Hmmmm.....I've got a lot. I guess I'll go with reading. Or American Girl. I dunno, one of the two. 
June: American Girl and Frozen. More AG though. 
2. Favorite flavor of gum?
Ginny: Well, I don't chew gum a lot, but when I do, it's usually one of the Extra Dessert Delights, so I'll go with that. 
June: I LOVE Extra Lemon Square, Raspberry Cupcake, and Watermelon.
3. Outdoors or indoors?
Ginny and June: OUTDOORS!!!

June: Sorry, but no. I'm an artsy girl :)
5. Do you ever want to buy a CD, but keep questioning if you should because of the album cover? 
Ginny: It's been a long time since I've bought a CD myself, but usually if it is (please don't judge :D) One Direction or Kelly Clarkson, I'll listen to it. 
June: CD's are a waste of money, and EWWWW to One Direction XP
6. Why isn't there a word that rhymes with orange?
Ginny: Because orange wanted to be a loner. 
June: Because people are weirdos. 
7. Do you ever say a word so many times at once that it doesn't sound like a word anymore?

8. Do you have a pet, if so what is it?

Ariel Photoshoot + Emily Photoshoot

 Hey readers, it is June! You were probably wondering were I have been lately and if I would EVER post again, but hey I'm here now. These photos were not edited besides watermark, so the lighting might be terrible. Enough writing, lets get to the photoshoot:

Ariel's Photoshoot:

 I really enjoyed this one of her in front of our playhouse.

 Not a huge fan of this one, Emily has a photo that is almost the same as this one (hopefully better).

 This one I think is my favorite...

 No changed my mind, this is my favorite

Emily's photoshoot:

This I think is one of my best photos ever taken!

Her eyes are flawless :)

My sweet little Emily

This one is better taken than #2... maybe

Tilted this one just a bit

She is right by the raspberry bush (on the left)

That's the end, feel free to comment on which photo you like the best!
By the way, my sister and I got an award, so we will post that later today.
Camera Nikon Coolpix S3500
Dollie Clothes: AGP Minneapolis doll shirt, AG skirt, and Emily's accessories.

The Unnamed Photo Series: Season 1, Episode 1

Hey! Long time no blog right? Anyway, the premiere for my new photo series is finally here! (I did not mean to make that rhyme, but it's kind of catchy XD) Anyway, I still need help figuring out a name, so I would love it if you would give me ideas in the comments. :)
The hospital door snapped closed behind me. I reached for my small, crimson bag hanging on the plain yellow hook.
It had been a long day at work; there were many injured people filtering in in a constant stream. I hurriedly turned around, wishing to get home as soon as possible so that I could remove my nurse's uniform. Just as I was about to hop off the porch, a strange sight stopped me in my tracks. 
There was a girl, probably not more than seventeen years old, running along the edge of the small meadow. I watched her expertly choose where to put her feet as she ran. 
Out of curiosity, I watched her pick her way quickly along the retaining wall.

She leaped off of the wall, and sprinted toward me. However, it did not seem as if she was running to me. 
She reached a large tree and to my horror, began to climb. 
"Wait!!" I yelled. She continued climbing and I dropped my purse and began to run towards her. 
She reached a small point where a large branch met the tree trunk, and I saw her starting to reach for a dangerously skinny branch. She grabbed the tree branch, and I started running towards her faster.

The branch snapped, and I saw her fall.

She hit the ground, and I heard a dull "thunk."
I finally reached the spot where she lay. I gently turned her over, and could feel her taking deep, heaving breaths. Relief flooded over me.
I helped her up and dragged her towards the hospital, with her still unconscious.
I know you all are wondering if she dies because of her fall, and my answer is no (thankfully). Anyway, what do you think so far? I'm sorry the photos look so bad. It was really windy the day I took them, and so it kept knocking Molly and Lissie over. They each faceplanted into the grass about three times each. Also, don't forget to give me ideas for the name!

One more thing, June and I literally finished watching the Isabelle movie ten minutes ago. I actually enjoyed it. McKenna's movie and Saige's movie seemed too cheesy to me. However, I think the Isabelle movie realistically only had a few cheesy parts (the lunchroom dance at the beginning being one of them). June and I also thought that Renata was more than a bit over the top. She was so rude! Anyway, I like the way it ended and I hope that Coco's movie will be a lot like it. Thanks for reading!!
P.S. Thanks for 6 followers!! Also, it's only twelve more days 'til BeForever!!

The Beginning of Forever

Hey everyone! It's Ginny and June! We both took the BeForever quiz on AG's website, and we wanted to share our results. 

And Mine:

Also, this morning on Living A Doll's Life, I found pics of  Samantha and Kit in their BeForever outfits:
Is it just me, or do Kit's eyes look like they are a darker blue? It's probably just the photo. Ginny and I also think that Kit's dress looks more like a modern dress than an outfit from the 1930's.

Samantha also seems to have a different face mold. Our mom thinks she looks like she has a Bitty Baby face mold. (We all doubt that she does, but it kind of looks like it.) I don't really think her dress looks like a meet dress, and it looks like her old party dress.
We're both excited about BeForever even though we are feeling a little skeptical about their clothing choices. 
You can see Rhonda's post here.

Thanks for reading!
