Meet Jess and Gabriel!

Hey guys! I have some really exciting news – there are two new additions to the SDBW fam and I’d love for you all to meet them!! Meet Jess and Gabriel (and Milo the dog of course)! Earlier this year I took a trip to Arizona with my mom. She was getting some cancer treatments (you can read more about it HERE) and needed some help getting around and carrying things. I went down and stayed with her for about {Read More}

Doing Dishes

Hey guys, it’s me, Lea! There was a sale on camera supplies at the mall the other day, so Tay and I decided to go check it out together! Unfortunately, most everything was sold out, so we left empty-handed. However, when I arrived home and walked into the kitchen, I discovered a large “gift” waiting for me! It was a huge stack of dishes. Apparently my sisters decided to make homemade pizza while Tay and I were out. And it {Read More}

American Girl 2018 Spring Release – My Thoughts – Part 2

The Truly Me releases have been a bit underwhelming recently, but AG stepped up their game quite a bit this time, so strap yourselves in, ’cause this is going to be a long one. 😆 First off, the boy dolls. These gentlemen were quite the surprise addition to the TM line, but I think they fit in quite nicely. After all, a few doll bloggers have made customized boy dolls for quite some time now, and I’ve always kinda wanted to {Read More}

New Beginnings

Man, 2017 seemed to crawl by, am I right? Just kidding. It FLEW. A few days ago I was remembering something that had happened earlier this year. It literally felt like it happened yesterday. To be honest, it made me really sad. 2017 went by so quickly for me, I could’ve missed it if I blinked. Yet I don’t feel like the year was wasted. In fact, I feel as if it was one of the best years of my {Read More}

There’s More to Come – FINALE

Before on: There’s More to Come Renae’s eyes widened and she took a quick guilty glance at Vanessa, who mouthed, ‘No’, back to her. It seemed too quick to be noticeable, but Grace was watching them closely and she called them out on it. “Ok, what are you two up to now?” ———————– “W-w-why would you say that?” Renae stuttered, obviously hiding something. It was in the way she held her hands behind her back, and glanced at Vanessa. Vanessa {Read More}

There’s More to Come – Part 4

When Grace arrived downstairs, she was immediately met by Vanessa and Renae, both peering out from behind the corner, hoping to catch a snippet of juicy conversation between Jessica and Winnie. Renae looked at Grace tentatively. “Please don’t go in there and cause a racket. They’re getting into some good topics.” Grace smiled. “No, I’m fine with her now. I was being kind of self-centered.” “I’ll say.” Renae muttered. Grace heard her and playfully shoved her arm. It wasn’t that {Read More}
