Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
SURPRISE!! We got a puppy, Meet Daisy! All Zoe wanted for her Birthday was a puppy, and while she didn’t think she was getting one we surprised her! If you have followed along you know Zoe’s most favorite thing is all things American Girl. She has been going there since her 6 month birthday, so it seemed fitting!
Here is how it all happened! I spent the day with a friend getting the puppy and had it ready to surprise the kids, as soon as they got home from school James told them they had to meet me at American Girl because we needed to do an exchange. They all met me there and I was next to all the American Girl pets. I told the kids look how cute these new pets are while I had the puppy in my hand. The boys were so caught up in the cute fake puppies – Zoe noticed right away! Here is the video below!
Seriously they were so surprised, the only bad thing is I don’t think we can ever top this!
The kids are all in love!
Zoe is already getting lots of puppy kisses!
Now time to go home and introduce her to Rosie!
I get so many questions about her 7ft doll house and you can find the plans on Ana Whites site under American Girl Dollhouse or by clicking on the highlighted words.
Not only did Zoe get her pup, but she was able to get the doll she has been wanting Blair! If you havent heard about Blair she is the 2019 Girl of the Year, and a young chef-in-training growing up on her family’s sustainable farm and B&B in the Hudson Valley region of New York. Blaire loves to create, whether it’s new dishes for the B&B’s restaurant or decorating for the farm’s first wedding event, but she sometimes finds it hard to balance tech time and real time with family and friends.Blaire’s important message to girls is about making meaningful connections with the people we love-and that means more than clicking and swiping-it means truly being there.
We love visiting the store and seeing all the displays this one for Blair is so gorgeous!
Here are some of Zoes favorites she is asking for from her family for her birthday!
It is still a month away from her Birthday, but I hope she remembers this birthday forever. This was such a special day for all of us!
A little flashback to where it all started Zoe’s first 1/2 Birthday!
