Celebrate the Holidays American Girl Style {GIVEAWAY}

Happy Monday everyone! We hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! With all this rain the "sunny" South has been having we were both given the luxury of having a relaxing weekend at home. That is a rare treat that we were sure to soak up because those type of weekends are few and far between. We know that Monday's are typically a bummer for everyone, but we are hoping to kick this week off with a bang! 


Last month we gave you guys a little teaser at some of the fun things coming up this holiday season from American Girl. We absolutely loved getting a tour of the new American Girl pop up store in Las Vegas, and getting an inside look at what will be popular this year for our little ones.



The pop up store was in total American Girl fashion - beyond adorable, with its mini hair salon and ear piercing studio, it's bathing station, and all the amazing dolls and play set ups that you can imagine.




The manager and staff were just as excited as the little girls running around, and that was refreshing to see. The moment you walked in the door you can feel just how happy and positive it made each person feel, and we hope that the store becomes a permanent fixture in Las Vegas. Not to mention that they let us in on a few secrets and maybe even a few fun surprises (or two. or five!) we get to share with you guys!!!

The store was bursting with holiday fun everywhere you looked.

{The Joyful Jewels Holiday Dress. }


One of our favorite things about American Girl is the positive messages of inspiration they try to reinforce throughout their stores and amongst their products to young girls. We fell in love with this huge message on the wall of the Las Vegas shop and were excited to see so many young girls want to hold their dolls and take their pictures in front of it.



The staff gave us a little peek at what they predicted would be the two most popular dolls this holiday season - Grace and Maryellen.




Grace is the 2015 Girl of the Year.


Here are some of just a few of our favorite accessories that we saw available to accompany Grace.



This super cute City Outfit . It is also available as an outfit for your child so they can match!
What Grace doll is complete without the Baking Set so she can make her tasty pastries? That mini mixer is simply adorable!!!


We love how American Girl creates a movie and a book for each character. They are the perfect way to share the story about the doll with your little ones and truly bring them to life!
We thought this little baking kit was super cute! It come with a cookbook for your own little baker and variety of mini baking accessories so that Grace can help out. 

Maryellen is an adorable 1950's inspired doll.


Here are some of the super cute accessories available to go with Maryellen.


Of course her little book is a must! 

This jukebox is 1950's perfection and so cute in person! 

And perfectly pairs with this adorable poodle skirt set! How cute are those saddle shoes?!?

All the dolls are simply exquisite, and each one special and unique in their story and their role in sending positive messages to little girls. And if that isn't fun enough - you can also custom create a doll or Bitty Baby through their Truly Me line to look just like your own little girl. The girls love having their own little "mini" sharing adventures with them and getting to name them on their own. The store is a little girls dream come true!

It's no secret that our girls are over the moon about all things American Girl (remember this post?) - nothing excites our daughters more than seeing that catalog arrive and getting to circle all the fun things to share with their dolls and their friends. From the books to the movies to the clothes to that over the top disco ball and dance floor - they LOVE it! And because American Girl is such an awesome brand we get to share some of that excitement with you this holiday season!!!


American Girl was so excited to kick off the holiday season and celebrate their new store that they decided to give one of our lucky readers an American Girl Doll. And not just any American Girl Doll but they let us choose Grace - the doll of the year for 2015! She won't be available after December and this special doll with her tasty creations has been a huge hit amongst girls of all ages.

Enter the giveaway below and the lucky winner will be announced on Black Friday (November 27th)! The fun doesn't stop there. Be sure to follow us on our social media channels because they gave us a few more fun surprises to give away this holiday season that we will be giving away the week of Thanksgiving.

  56. My daughter wants this doll so bad. I threw her a Paris Party this summer, and she told me all about this doll. She owns a few knock off AG dolls, but not the real deal. I followed y'all on Pinterest. I also pinned one of your recipes to one of my huge boards. I am doing this from my phone so I don't know how to enter after I followed on Pinterest and pinned. Anyway, this would be a dream come true for her this Christmas. Thank tou for the chance. Jen-Craft-O-Maniac
