Happy Birthday To Moi and New Clothes!


I celebrated my 13th birthday last week, and I had a fantastical day!

In the morning, I opened my gifts, and had a beautiful breakfast of cinnamon rolls, chocolate crepes (made special by a close friend especially for me), scrambled eggs, bacon, and fruit.  It was delicious!  

After breakfast, we went on a bike ride with our friend.  It was a very nice bike ride, and we were blessed with beautiful warm, sunny weather.  After our bike ride we went to sushi.  The food was AMAZING, and I had a lot of fun!  They even brought me a special birthday dessert with Mochi (a Japanese ice cream dessert) and a fried banana!  It was super tasty!  My favorite kinds of sushi is salmon and tuna nigiri.  Nigiri is a slice of fish on rice.  Do you like sushi?  What is your favorite kind?

After sushi, we went to Taylor Creek to watch the Kokanee Salmon spawn.  It was so amazing to watch them.  We went home, and watched "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs."  It is a really cute movie, and I love to watch it - my sister checked it out for me at the library.  I had a delightful desert of cheesecake, and it was SO yummy!  There were 4 different flavors: Belgian chocolate, caramel, turtle, and red velvet.  My favorites were turtle and Belgian chocolate.  I had a great day!

These are the gifts I received for my birthday from my parents, sister, and grandma:

1. Camelbak All Clear UV Microbiological Water Purification System
2. Weekend Fun Outfit for Dolls + Charm
3. Casual Chic Outfit + Charm
4. Pretty Pink Coat Set + Charm
5. Snowy Earmuffs for Dolls

I also received the "Star Hoodie Outfit for Dolls" (one of the AG meet outfits from a previous year) from my very special friend Claire.  Thank you so much Claire!  You are so sweet!  Please check out her blog here, and her YouTube channel here.

Yesterday, my mom and I had a shopping day together.  I really needed some pants, because I didn't have a single pair that fit anymore and it is definitely beginning to get cooler.  For the last year or two, I have had issues finding clothes.  I haven't fit in the junior's section, but I don't really care for the stuff in the kid's department.  Has this happened to any of you?  It has been frustrating.  I was very successful at Target a few weeks ago, and I found a lot of great shirts.  I didn't find any pants, though; and it's getting cold!  After going to Target, plus many other mall stores, we finally went to Abercrombie Kids.  Honestly, my mom was hoping we'd find something somewhere else first, which is why we went there last.  But... Abercrombie Kids was the only place I actually found anything that fit (and I liked - and I wasn't being overly picky).   I only needed jeans and sweatpants, and I was successful!  I got 2 pairs of sweatpants; 1 pink and 1 black.  I got 1 pair of yoga pants with a green band on the top, and 2 pairs of bootcut jeans.  I like all of the pants a lot, and the jeans a super comfy!

So, you're probably wondering about the giveaway I promised.  Details coming TOMORROW!!!  Sorry about the delay!  Have a great night!



  1. Shiawasena tanjobi, Grace!

    I'm glad you had a happy birthday! I'm turning thirteen, too, in December.

    I love mochi! I had it quite a bit when I lived in Japan. But my favorite dessert is kuzumochi, a cake from the starch of kudzu.

    Happy birthday again!

    Sore iko, Sayoko

  2. Thank you! I have never had kuzumochi before, but it sounds quite yummy! Have a great day!


  3. Happy [belated] Birthday, Grace!!!!! :) I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful day!! That movie is so cute. :) I will get your blog advertised in my next post on Generation Gazette, don't worry. :) Thanks so much for following!! I really appreciate it!! :) I don't really have trouble getting any clothes (I never have) mostly because I always go to thrift stores. :P It's always easy to find lots of cute stuff for lots of awesome prices!! I even managed to ahold of a pair of bearskin boots for five dollars!! (like the fluffy boots kind? Yeah, I love those) Anyway, so maybe if you really need something, you could try out a thrift store somewhere near you. They have yet to fail me!! =D

    1. Thanks for advertising my blog! I love the Generation Gazette, and how it is written like a newspaper! Your are an amazing writer! How do you manage so many blogs? I was actually planning on going to the thrift store today {funny!} to look for some stuff for Halloween! I'll make sure to pay attention to clothing, too!


  4. Happy birthday! :D That's awesome.
    Also, i saw your comment on my blog and here is my advice:
    Only when people drag your button and put it on their blog can they change the link of it. I actually just realized that now. When I click on my button on my blog, it goes to too. But when I click on it on other peoples blogs, then it goes to my blog. Does that make sense?

  5. Yes, that does make sense! Thank you so much!


  6. Happy belated Grace! I love your blog, so cool! I will definitely advertize your blog on mine. What are you going to be for Halloween? Can't wait to hear!!!!!

    ~Julianna :)

    1. Thanks! I have no idea what I'm going to be for Halloween. Hopefully I'll find something at the local thrift shop!
