Let’s Be Friends Blog Hop! Come join us!

A blog hop is a set time frame for current or aspiring bloggers to find new blogs and quality content. It is a great way to make new friends and find inspiration! It is also a fabulous way to promote your own blog and posts.

Dear Friends,
What a day to celebrate! This is the 200th week of the Let’s Be Friends blog hop! Thanks for joining us on this special day. Chelsee and Tiffany are extremely delighted to see the way this hop has grown and love to see your faces each week!

Join us every Tuesday at 7am (MST). This blog hop focuses on content. LINK UP YOUR FAVORITE POST from last week in this fun content-sharing blog hop! I love the idea of blog hopping, but I love the idea of reading posts and quality content on new blogs I’ve never been to even more. Instead of simply linking up your blog button, you are now able to link up your favorite post you recently wrote. Have a delicious recipe to share, DIY tutorial, or heartfelt post? Share it with us! All hosts and co-hosts put up some unique and fun content from the past week. Make sure to check them out. P.S.- you may still link up your blog button and blog name, but it is encouraged to link up your favorite post instead. You will get more page views and interest if you do so! Some of the most successful blog hops I have participate in focus on content rather than just exchanging follows. You never know who will become a loyal follower or pin that delicious new recipe you posted!
The BEST part of this blog hop? Each week there will be a WINNER! That’s right, each week we will choose one lucky blog to feature from the previous week’s hop. This hop receives thousands of page views every week, so your blog will have the chance to be center stage for free. You must follow all the hosts in order to win.

So Truly Mine Play Doll Review!

so-truly-mine

One of the most magical things about being a Mommy is watching with wonder as my four-year old daughter plays make-believe. Her wild imagination never ceases to amaze me. Lillian loves to play dress up (as well as dress up our puppy). She pretends she is a rock star sometimes, or other times she pulls out her Play-Doh and makes dresses for all of her little figurines. Recently she has been into play dolls.

Recently she has been really into dolls. Lil got her first doll around two years old. She never really played with it. Then, all of a sudden, she took a huge interest in baby dolls. It all started one day when she was playing “Mommy”. She brought the doll with us to the grocery store, buckled her safely in her “seat”. Next she fed her and dressed her and put her down for a nap. These beautiful dolls from the So Truly Mine collection are the perfect starter play doll for children.

I decided I wanted to get her a beautiful, high quality doll. We found the perfect doll from The So Truly Mine doll collection by the Ashton-Drake Galleries! When I was a little girl I remember reading my grandmothers magazines and seeing the gorgeous and life-like dolls by the Ashton-Drake Galleries. They make the same beautiful and hand-crafted dolls for toddlers.

The So-Truly Mine Doll Collection by the Ashton-Drake Galleries offers this very life-like play doll perfect for busy toddlers. The dolls are designed by some of the world’s top doll artists, for ages 3 and up! I was able to choose the dolls eye, hair color, and skin color to personalize the baby doll to my daughters liking. We were even able to print out the baby’s birth certificate!

When our doll arrived, my daughter was beyond excited. She had been asking for a baby doll for some time, and I kept this a surprise. She immediately pulled the baby out and said, “Aw, she is so beautiful Mommy!”. She carefully dressed the baby. I was impressed by the small touches, the gorgeous soft pink on the lips of the baby and even the delicate baby powder smell! The baby is soft and moveable, perfect for my daughter to play make-believe. They have guaranteed Christmas delivery– so now is the perfect time to order this doll for Christmas!!!

Lillian named her new doll Rose, which is a perfect fit with the Party Princess Accessory Set we chose for her. The outfit is SO adorable with the gorgeous detailed touches, and it is super well made. I love the rose on the outfit, and the shoes come off and on really easily. Plus it is machine washable!!

The doll is a very life-like weight and is perfect for a four-year old. This doll retails for about $99, so it is a special gift to cherish and take care of. The doll has a soft body perfect for cuddling and playing. I am glad my daughter is now able to care for her toys as she loves and takes special care of her new So Truly Mine baby doll.

It has been over one week now and she takes the doll everywhere with her. I told her she must take care of her lovely new doll. I highly recommend this doll for toddlers and young girls who love to play with dolls. It makes a wonderful and special gift for birthdays or Christmas and will be a beautiful toy to cherish for years to come.
