Our New Additions

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re having a great Tuesday. In my “I’m Back!” post, I mentioned that we acquired some new additions in my family. Here are some of your guesses as to what the new additions might be:

the 2 members are pets!! (Mary E.)

Maybe the additions are dolls or pets… 🙂 (Emma – Dazzling Dollies)

Great job, guys! The new additions are . . . . . .

PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!

Everybody, please welcome to the family . . .

 

Callie and Jaxon!!!!!

We acquired our new furry friends on June 11th, so it’s been a month. The puppies are five months old and are from the same litter.

 

First up, we have Callie.

Callie is my puppy, and she is a purebred Chihuahua. She has a cute little underbite and a very sassy personality. She’s possibly the runt of the litter, but she is definitely in charge when it comes to her brother. 🙂
(Don’t tell Archie, but she’s totally touching him. See the black fur?)
Next is Jaxon.

He belongs to my brother, and he is a Chihuahua mix – possibly Dauschund or Jack Russel Terrier. He’s extremely playful and IMPOSSIBLE to housebreak. (Oh yeah, did I mention they’re NOT HOUSEBROKEN???)
That’s it for now . . . oh yeah. Quick announcement. My posting schedule is going to be sort of wonky this summer, with the extra free time I’ll have and then crazy busy weeks, so expect two posts a week – but they may not necessarily be on a Monday and a Thursday.
I’ll see y’all later this week!

What do you think of the new puppies? Which one is cuter? YES YOU MUST MAKE A DECISION. Kidding. 🙂

And . . . I’m Back!

Helloooooo, world! I’m ecstatic to be back on my blog! It’s been a great hiatus, I got the break I needed and accomplished a TON of stuff. Here’s a list, so you don’t think I was sitting around binge-watching Stranger Things. (Kidding, I don’t watch that show.)

I . . .

  • Helped out at a language-immersion camp
  • Volunteered at not one, but two Vacation Bible Schools!
  • Reorganized my room
  • Color-coordinated my bookshelf (inspired by Sam from Redhead With A Book)
  • Went on an awesome camping trip with my friends
  • Worked on a collab with another awesome blogger (more on that later!)
  • Did quite a bit of babysitting
  • Welcomed two new additions to my family (no, they’re not babies. Again, more on that later).

So, as you can see, I was quite busy. I feel like it’s been months, instead of less than three weeks.

This summer has been awesome so far. There are a lot of fun things happened up here in Alaska for me, and I’m not going to be any less busy than I was during my hiatus. But I just couldn’t leave you guys for very long. 🙂

Here’s a sneak peak of epic posts coming up soon:

  • Two collab posts
  • Lindsey’s Revenge (A Photostory)
  • Part 3 of The Trials of Tessa (I have learned through trying and failing to do photoseries that I am absolutely awful at them)
  • Review of Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit
  • Family Pictures (A Photostory)
  • A Summer Photoshoot, Take 2 (A Photoshoot, obviously)
  • And much, much more! (Now, if only I could find my post calendar . . .)

Like I said at the beginning of this post, I’m soooo happy to be back! I’ve missed you guys. 🙂

I Hate To Do This, But . . .

Pencils

Hi, everybody. Now, please don’t freak out. I’m not leaving the blogging world or anything!

Deep breaths. Calm down. Good? Okay. Let’s continue.

I am, however, taking a short hiatus. My hiatus will last for three weeks, from June 5-25. It’s just 20 days, I think you’ll survive without me.

The good news is that I will not be completely MIA from WordPress during my hiatus. I will still check my reader and comment/reply to comments during my hiatus. I will just be unable to post.

I’m going on hiatus because summer in Alaska is CA-RAY-ZEE!!! It’s like we Alaskans try to cram as much stuff as possible into a three-month window so we can get everything done we couldn’t during the rest of the year because it was too cold or whatever.

This week, I am volunteering at a language immersion camp. This weekend, I’m going on a camping trip. Next week, I am doing not one but TWO Vacation Bible Schools in the EXACT SAME WEEK. (Could you pray for me, please?) The week after, my family is going on a little vacation. I’m going to be doing a 5K walk/run with my grandma!

So yeah. We’re a little busy.

Of course, it’s not just June. There are the visiting relatives and friends, many camping trips, yard work, etc. But the next three weeks are going to be very very busy, so that’s why I’m hiatus-ing.

This is my first hiatus, guys, and I’m sorry that I have to take one. But there you have it. I’ll miss y’all, but I’ll be back soon!

Oh! And if I have time, Part 3 of The Trials of Tessa will be going up soon, (during my hiatus). 🙂 And when I get back, I’ll be doing a couple of collabs, so you can get excited for those. 🙂

I will have a days-left-until-hiatus-is-over countdown on my sidebar, so if you want a reminder of when I’m coming back, just check there!

Bye for now!

A Message From Moe

Hello everyone, it is I – Moe.

If you are wondering why AGs in Alaska has not posted AT ALL this week, I am here with the long-awaited answer.

Although it’s just dolls, people. Her blog should really be about ME. Come on. Wouldn’t that be, like, a thousand times better?

*Crystal starts blabbering* 

Okay, fine. The real reason AGs in Alaska hasn’t posted at all this week is because of a slow wifi connection where she is. Fortunately, she is returning tonight and will be back to posting tomorrow.

How did I even get this message?

The answer: a carrier pigeon. Not the most efficient way to send notes, of course. I much prefer texting. But whatevs.

Moe, signing off.

So, as you can see, pet photography is very difficult. But . . . every once in a while you’ll end up with a picture like this:

And you realize it was totally worth it.

See y’all on Monday!

P.S. Want to see more of Moe? Lucky for you, he’s going to be my fill-in starting next Thursday while I’m on vacation!

A Few Random Announcements . . .

Hey, guys! This is going to be a weird post – I don’t have a photostory or anything prepared. I am working on a VERY special post that is going to come out on Monday, so I did not have time to take pictures or anything. But I do have three BIG announcements.

First of all, I have reached 1,000 likes on American Girls in Alaska!

 

1,000 Likes
Congratulations on getting 1,000 total likes on American Girls in Alaska.
Your current tally is 1,008.
Thank you to EVERYONE who supports my blog, comments, follows, and likes all of my posts – you guys mean the world to me!
I also wanted to let you know that I have reached 80 followers! (I currently have 82.) YOU GUYS ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Lastly . . .

 

3 Year Anniversary Achievement
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
This is kind of sentimental for me – I have been blogging for three years now???  If you are new to my blog, I have been doing American Girls in Alaska for only 10 months, but I had a blog before this one that I started a few years ago and finished last year.

So . . . why am I posting all of this, besides the fact that I have nothing else to share today? Because this isn’t really about ME, guys, it’s about YOU! I could not have done this without your amazing support and help along the way. However sappy it may sound, you are really the ones who make American Girls in Alaska . . . um . . . American Girls in Alaska!

So THANK YOU.

My 50th Post – Q&A!

Hello, lovely readers! Today is a very, very special occassion. This is my 50th post!

(cheers, confetti, balloons, chocolate)

Before we get to the exciting part of this post, I want to say thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you to all of my fabulous readers and subscribers. I probably wouldn’t still be blogging if it weren’t for you. You guys are amazing!!! You have no idea what it means to me to read your sweet comments and know that you are supporting my blogging efforts.

And now for the announcement!

For my 50th post, I’m doing a Q&A! 🙂 🙂 🙂

This wasn’t my original idea. My original idea was a lot more complicated, and with NaNoWriMo and scheduling my posts, I didn’t have the time to do what I wanted to – so I’m saving that for later. Maybe for my 50 subscribers post – so if you haven’t subscribed to my blog already (and you feel that my  blog is subscription-worthy), please do so.

Now, here are the rules for the Q&A:

  • You can ask as many questions as you want.
  • The questions must not be creepy, inappropriate, or personal (i.e., my name or address).
  • You only have until November 8th to ask me questions. I will be answering your queries on my Monday, November 9th post.

Now, I did not publish a post on Monday because if I had, this would be my 51st post, instead of my 50th. That’s why.

Okay, that’s all! Please question away! I can’t wait to see what questions you come up with.

And once again, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
