Seeing a Circus

Hi everybody!
Last night I went out into the city to see a circus.  I went to one of my favorite theaters of all time and we sat so close to the front! The circus we saw came all the way from China. I would really love to go to China one day; it seems spectacular. There were bright costumes, contortionists, acrobats, and at the end, everybody rode on a single bike! I think my favorite was when some acrobats jumped and flipped through really high hoops. Here's a photo of me in the theater. They wouldn't let me take photos of the performance, but that's understandable.
That's all for now!

What I'm Wearing: Molly's sweater from AG, exclusive pants from AG, and Josefina's Riding Boots from AG.

Sisters and Christmas Dresses

Hello everybody!

I'm so sorry I have been neglecting this blog for so long. To be honest, I just forgot about it! But  am very glad that I am back!

The holidays are approaching so quickly. My mom made me dress up in my Christmas dress early. I'm just glad it's not really super pink or frilly!
Don't tell anyone, but I usually leave my heels for a pair of my warmest slippers. They make me feel a lot comfier. 

 I had to ask my sister Nicki how she deals with holiday dresses. She seems not to mind them at all. she's like a fashion superhero! 
"Well," she said. "I absolutely adore fancy dresses. I just think that they're so pretty, and it's all for a good occasion!"

I'm slightly envious of Nicki. She has gorgeous caramel brown hair and she always seems to look great.

Well, it all really doesn't matter in the long run. All of my family is stuck in fancy dresses!

Until next time,

Visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Hi everybody! Today I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It was very fun.
First we went to the Early American Art exhibit. I saw a large head with cavernous holes for eyes that was a little scary but very interesting. It was made out of rock and I wanted to climb on it, but I wasn't allowed. 

Next, I saw a Chinese Buddha who was very tall and detailed. I had never been in the Asian art wing, so it was really impressive. 

Also in the Asian art wing, I saw a whole wall filled with mini bottles, perfect for my size! This one was my favorite: it had a jade fish on it.

Next, we went to an outdoor garden that had a waterfall and pond in it, right in the museum! Here I am, posing near the water.

Luckily there was a rope so I couldn't tumble in. The fish in the water reminded me of the fish on the bottle I had seen earlier.

Last, we went to the Egyptian wing. The Egyptian wing has always been my favorite wing in the whole museum. It's usually very crowded and not good for pictures, but we managed to find some interesting rooms with not a lot of people. In here, there were decorative pots and beads from Egypt lining the room.

Here I am in front of a tall statue of a pharaoh, I think. I love the Egyptian statues; the faces are so expressive.

This was the last statue I posed in front of. I think it is of a god or goddess, but I'm not sure. It was in a huge room with a real Egyptian temple in it! I really wanted to take a picture with William, the museum's mascot, but it was too crowded for a good picture. After visiting the gift shop, we left the museum. I had a very nice time there.

Now, here is everything I got at the museum. I got a William postcard, a William eraser, and three New York City notebooks. I may hang the postcard in my room or add it to my postcard collection. I'm not sure yet! Maybe William the eraser can be friends with my Tokidoki figurines.

I decided to turn one of the notebooks into a scrapbook of all of my adventures! I decided to write my favorite thing about the adventure and include my entry pass.

Thanks for Reading!

What I'm Wearing: shirt, leggings, and boots from American Girl, and homemade blazer

My Collections

Hello everyone! It's Emily.

Julie asked me to get the snowboard from out under her bed for some reason, and I did.

I was digging around under her bed (it's filled with dust bunnies) and I found this--

It's a container filled with all of my Japanese erasers! I love to collect these little erasers; they are so much fun.

I laid them all out on the table, and in total I have 28 erasers.

Here are all of the animals: I have two frogs, an elephant, a pig, a pink panda, a cow, a green owl, a flat sunfish, a blue turtle, a manta ray, two whales, orange coral, and a smiley flower.

Here are all of the foods and miscellaneous items: two cakes, a biscuit, a stack of pancakes, a crepe, an ice pop, a pan, a pot, a spatula, a fork, a ladle, a spoon, a purple handbag, a pot, and an ice cream cone.

My favorite erasers are the whales and the elephant. They're so adorable!

I also remembered about my postcards. I love to collect postcards from all different places.

Here's another shot of all of my postcards.

Here are my two favorite postcards!

This one is of two cute Holstein cows near a pretty maple tree. This one's from Vermont.

And this postcard has a whole bunch of different shells from Florida on it. I love seeing if I can find all of the shells on the beach on vacation!

So those are my collections. What do you collect? Rocks, shells, maybe pressed flowers? Let me know in the comments below!
Bye for now,

Visiting the Taste of France Festival!

Hi everyone (or should I say bonjour?)!
Today I'll be telling you about my adventure to the Taste of France festival back in September.
The first thing I noticed upon arrival was the gigantic hot air balloon. It was floating right in the center of the event! 
They weren't offering rides, but if they were, I certainly would have gone on it.
We walked around a bit and I saw some people in a bubble sculpting an Eiffel Tower out of butter! Representatives for the butter company were hovering near the bubble and handing out samples of baguettes with butter. Très magnifique!
I also went on a beautiful carousel! The horses were so detailed and fun to sit on. Down below is a quick clip of me on the carousel with French music in the background.

Well, that's all for now. Au revoir!

I love Gogos, Tokidoki figurines, and books.

So that's all about me! I hope you liked learning about me. On this blog, I'll be posting all about my life
For now, bye! See you next post :)
