Birthday Weekend

So I had a pretty good birthday weekend this year.

Saturday I got to spend the day with Boyfriend.  We went shopping and he bought me presents.  ^_^
A kitty hat!  :D
A Hello Kitty computer mouse! It lights up!  :D

Then we went out to lunch and to the park.  ^_^  And then we went back to my house and snuggled while we watched some Netflix.  Yay for snuggling.  It was a nice relaxing day.

Sunday I went up north to see my friends for a Sushi + Tea + Dollie party at Zylphia's new apartment with Mimi, Grant, Melissa, Alicia, Kenny, and Zyl of course.  Mimi taught us how to make yummy sushi rolls and onigiri, and Mel also brought super delicious rainbow cupcakes and no-bake cookies.  There was also tea of course, and I brought a watermelon, so we had lots of happy full tummies.  ^_^
An inside-out California roll, some pork dumplings, and a shrimp nigiri.
Nomnomnom rainbow cuppycake!
There was lots of fun-ness and laughing and then an adventure to a little cabin where we took some pictures with our dolls.  I always have so much fun with my Fayetteville doll friends.  I just wish we didn't live so far apart.  The three hour drive home was boring and felt longer than the drive up.  But making the trip was definitely worth it.  

So all in all, a fantastic fun weekend.  (:

Character Development

I've been trying to work on character development for my dolls.  I like to have first and middle names for all of my dolls, and then I also decided that they needed last names.  So I finally came up with first, middle, and last names for all of them except Madeline.  She has had a middle name the longest, but I'm still undecided about her last name.

I've really been inspired to develop my dolls' characters because of a website I joined.  It's one of those Ning social network places, but it's just for dolls, and you actually sign up as the doll and post as the doll, etc.

All of my dolls have basic personalities that they just sort of develop over time from looking at them and playing with them.  Like I knew Emilie was going to be a bit of a punk when I first saw her picture, and Olivia just has that sad little face that says she is shy and withdrawn.  But if I'm going to start writing stories about them, I need a little more substance to their characters and personalities.

So that's my project for now.  (:

Sorry for Not Updating

Sorry I haven't updated this in awhile.  I guess I just haven't had much to say.  Life is pretty status quo I guess you could say.  I've been spending time with Boyfriend, playing with my dolls, working on crafts.  Oh, and trying to avoid the heat.  It's been disgustingly hot and humid here, so I just pretty much don't go outside unless I have to.  I can't wait until fall is here and it's nice and cool.  As Boyfriend says, "Hoodie Weather".  ^^

Speaking of fall, I guess I need to start preparing myself for the Fall Semester.  Not that I exactly have anything to do to get ready (besides get my account settled and confirm my classes), but I have to prepare mentally to actually getting out of bed on a regular basis and going in and doing schoolwork and all that instead of just sitting around relaxing and doing crafts and whatever else I please.  Hopefully it won't be too bad.  (:
