There are some days when I can think of, what I consider to be, really important things to share with the random strangers and not-so-random visitors of my blog. There are some days when I heard something profound and I can’t wait to share it. There are some days when I had an argument with someone, or a fight with the boyfriend, or a confrontation with a classmate that’s sort of a friend at school and it just gets mentioned on the blog because, well, it’s my outlet.

And then there are some days when… I haven’t really done much? I woke up. I ate breakfast. I checked my email. I knit. I changed and ran out of the house (as per usual) to the bus stop and got there right when the bus was rolling up. I went to school, got run over by cyclists and runners and I attended my lectures. I handed in my lab report. I chatted with a friend before my biology class. I got on the bus and slept on the way home. I have renewed faith in the police officers associated with the public transit system where I live. I got home. I ate dinner, I watched General Hospital and part of Heroes. I knit some more, I talked on the phone, I checked my email, read over some blogs, left a few comments, listened to Dan Savage talk about sex.

So instead of boring you all with details of my rather insignificant day…

Instead, I am going to share with you all something that’s really pretty. And gorgeous. And I want it. Badly. Maybe it’s because when I was younger, I didn’t have a lot of dolls that I could dress up. I have an absurd amount of stuffed animals, but Build-A-Bear didn’t exist when I was 10 and wanting to give my favourite teddy bear a coat (not a dress, because, well, he’s a boy). Maybe that’s why I’m so incredibly infatuated with Blythe.

And this one in particular, who’s being released in April of this year, is ‘Sunshine Holiday’ and comes with like three outfits and those really cute sunglasses and flipflops. And plus, you know, the word ‘Sunshine’ is in her name. So adorable. Have I mentioned that she’s really pretty? And gorgeous?


At the risk of sounding like I’m really greedy, Sunshine Holiday isn’t the only doll on the wish list, she’s just the newest one. I am such a child sometimes.

  1. I think it’s wonderful that you’re embracing your inner child. And I agree Sunshine Holiday is darling and beautiful!

    When I was in treatment last year, I went through this week of “backwards growth” where I learned to embrace my inner little girl. Since then I’ve been twirling in sundresses, giggling over teddies, and actually significantly happier. It seems that with age, we suppress our true joys.

    So, it’s a lovely thing that you’re a child sometimes! I’ll be a child with you! 🙂
