It's me, Saige.  I'm back to finish my post about our super fun party for Isabelle! 

I hurried and did my homework as soon as I got home from school today but boy was I tired!  I could barely keep my eyes open in Algebra class until my teacher randomly called on me to come up to the smart board and solve a problem.....oh boy, THAT opened my eyes for sure!!!!!  I should NOT have stayed up as late as I did last night.  Not gonna do that again!

So, back to where I left off last night;  After Lanie and Isabelle had some get-to-know-each-other time, all four of us Girl Of The Year girls started talking about how special it was to be 'that' girl.  It's so much fun but it is also a big responsibility to do the right thing, set good examples and make a positive difference in the lives around us.  McKenna, Lanie and I had fun sharing our stories with Isabelle.  We're anxious to find out more about her story during her visit.

 
I finished up my punch and was going back to get some more when I burst out laughing.....poor Harper was Meatloaf's current quest for a playmate.  She was trying to politely "shoo" him away but he was having none of it!  None, nada, zippo, zilch!  Too, too funny!
 
 
Just then I overheard Cindy telling Trey that he could now have some of his favorite cookies.....BUT, not 15 of them at one time!  "No scarfing, Trey!" Cindy scolded.  In my mind I was thinking; Yeah, good luck with that!
 
 
Got back just in time for a quick photo of us all together as the party was starting to wind down.  And, Oh.M.Gee.  There was Meatloaf.....again.   That dog is the most persistent dog I know!  Fortunately, Meatloaf finally found a willing playmate.....seriously; I was thanking God for Coconut in that moment!  Off they ran, chasing that poor green balloon all over the kitchen - it's amazing it didn't go POP!  Secretly I was wishing it would just to see Meatloaf hit the deck.  :)  Too bad my wish didn't come true! 


Lanie wanted a photo of just her and Isabelle together.  Lanie has really taken to Isabelle.  She thinks they could easily be sisters.  I definitely think they could too!  All though, I must confide that Isabelle's eyes are more of a greyish-hazel color as opposed to Lanie's greenish-hazel eyes.  Still, if you saw them on the street, I bet you'd swear they were sisters for sure!    
 

 
This was the last photo before I sent Lanie to bed.  They both look so sweet together, don't you think? ♥ 


Well, I hope you enjoyed our party photos.  I know I speak for all the girls here at the dorm when I say that we all sure had fun welcoming Isabelle to our dorm for her visit.  Each of us hopes to spend the next few days just hanging out around the dorm getting to know Isabelle better.  I'm sure we'll have more to share in a few days!  ~Saige ♥

  2. I've officially fallen for Isabelle. I really disliked her before, but she's stunning! BUT, she'll definitely be getting a name change. I'm thinking Sally or Billie!

    2. Well I think just like Erin R. I disliked Isabelle before but now I love her. But I think that she could had a different name like Lucy or something, but the name is still think the name Isabelle is cute :)

    3. Hi there, We're so glad that through our blog, you have grown to love Miss Isabelle. Maybe you could give her a new first name and use "Isabelle" as her middle name? Or, maybe "Isabelle" is her first name and you give her a special middle name and she goes by that? How about "Selita Isabelle" or maybe "Isabelle Louise"? ~Saige ♥

  4. I think that she is somewhat unoriginal, but i donthave any blonde dolls so to me its not much of an issue....does she have a part? She seems to have a really far side part, but she could also have hair like mckennas...please reply!

    1. Hi Laurn, We think she is very original but everybody has there own opinions, right? :) We talked about her hair in another answer to a comment...Isabelle's part is different to McKenna's. We love the way Isabelle parts her hair a bit farther to the side...very current in her style! ~Saige & the D3 girls. ♥

  6. I've definitely begun to like Isabelle a bit more, but I'm not yet sure if I will be adding her to my collection. I'll need to see her in person before I decide. Did you buy Isabelle off of Ebay when she was leaked or did you get her in some other way?

  9. She is really pretty. Not quite as blonde as I first thought, but still not on my wishlist. We already have three blondes in the family. :-D
    Thank you for a wonderful story. As I said yesterday, your backdrop and props are wonderful! (Oh, and I would have played with Meatloaf - love him, we have him too. Lots of sloppy puppy kisses from him.)

    1. Hello Melody, YES, YES!! Sloppy puppy kisses are the best! And Meatloaf's are extra sloppy, right?!?!? Thanks for your oh-so-sweet comments on our dorm.....we're always adding, rearranging, painting and sewing to improve it. We love decorating! ~Saige & the D3 Girls ♥

  13. Are her purple highlights real? Like attached to her head? Or are they from the set? Do they fade?

    1. Isabelle tells us she likes to put in her hair extensions and that they slip into her hair about half way down from the crown of her head with three small "bra-like" hooks. She feels special and unique when she is wearing them! We're a little jealous that we don't have something so cool but we can always use the other ones they sell at the store! ~Saige ♥

  15. Wow your blog is awesome! Isabelle is gorgeous! I can't wait till 2014! How much did you end up biding? I can not wait until the other outfits come out!! Do you have a YouTube channel? You should, you are so talented with storylines, that you would get very popular really fast!

    1. Hi there!!!! Saige told me I had a message and I was sooooooooooo excited to come and see! I love these boots too. We girls pretty much share all our shoes here and these are one of my fav boots! I love to shop on "the bay" and if you go there and put this number - 370826961550 - in the search box, you'll find these awesome little boots! They go with SO much! Have fun shopping!!!!! ~Lanie ♥

  20. I keep changing my mind about Isabelle! When you did Part 1, I decided I didn't want her. Now that I saw these pictures, I want her! I'm like, "Make up your mind, Marisa!!!"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh Marisa! Yes, we can understand...once you see Isabelle face to face, we are sure you are going to love, love, love her. We think she has the sweetest little face and she is such a sweet girl on the inside too! ~Saige & the D3 girls! ♥

      Delete
    2. Hehe... Now that I think about it, I'm probably going to save up my allowance to get her... it should take me about half the year! I really like her... the only problem is her EYES. They're hazel, and all my AGs have hazel eyes! (I have Kanani and MAG #55.) I like her hair, and although it's similar to McKenna's, I don't have McKenna, and I could do a lot with it. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the hair extension! It's so unique! On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the worst and 10 being the best), what would you rate Isabelle?
      ~Marisa
      P.S. Would you mind if I used some of your pictures to do a post on my opinion of Isabelle on my blog? Your pictures are so good and it would be a good opportunity to advertise for your blog (since I would add a link to give you credit for the pictures).

  44. Hello! I am deciding if I want to get Miss Isabelle or not! I have 2 dolls right now (McKenna and JLY #13) I am a ballet dancer myself and I really like her but I just don't know if I will get her or not? Any suggestions? Also, is there a website that sells the retired Lanie doll? If so, about how much would it cost?
    Thanks, Ashleigh

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Ashleigh,

      Well now, only you can make that decision. We think Isabelle is a beautiful girl. She is sweet and kind on the inside and certainly pretty on the outside. Of course, we love McKenna and we think that JLY13 has beautiful brown eyes and pretty chestnut brown hair. So, Isabelle would be totally different from your two girls that you have. I do know that you can get Lanie on eBay (must be an adult to bid) but if you are looking for one that is new or like new, you'll need to save up a bit. However, if you don't mind a gently played-with Lanie, you could get a better deal. Only you can decide what is right for you. We love both Lanie and Isabelle and you can't go wrong with either! ~Saige♥
