Hello friends! I hope you’re all having a lovely Friday. I’ve spent the majority of the day preparing this post for you all, so I hope you enjoy! I will be introducing a new bear, so keep an eye out for her! Periwinkle puts on a nice dress. She’s going out tonight, for the first time in a long time. Being a mom of seven, she doesn’t normally get very much time to herself. Tonight, however, tonight is girls’ night. Her sisters and friends are going to drop their kids off at her house. These women have been looking forward … Continue reading Skipping Stones Episode 8 “Girls Night and Candy’s Delight”

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Four {Series Finale}

Hello friends! At last, we’re at the end of L’Etudiant Etranger. This is my first completed multi-season photoseries! That’s exciting, right? Anyway, today’s episode is the last episode ever…so I really hope you enjoy! Days passed and I still hadn’t made my decision. “Are your things ready for the airport?” Clarice asked. “Adeline sweetie, I don’t remember if you’ve ever told me when you’re flying home. Is it soon?” “Oh, I am staying in the United States for a while. I love it here!” Adeline happily replied. I loved it here too, but was that enough to stay? I couldn’t … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Four {Series Finale}

L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

Hello friends! It’s time for episode three of L’Etudiant! I can’t believe we’re already almost done with this series. Also, I had promised to give you all the conclusion to our Star Wars saga this Star Wars day, and erm…that didn’t happen. I *promise* I’ll make it happen next year! Anyway, on with the continuation of Gisselle’s story! “You’re going to love our cousins!” Claire beamed. Today was aigre-doux*. Adeline was going to be meeting all the friends I’d made over the past year, and we were going to celebrate. But also, it was potentially the last time I’d see … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode Three

Hello friends! Are you guys ready to begin our first photo series of 2022? I am! This is the first of four episodes that comprise Gisselle’s return to France. You might meet some new characters along the way! I’m excited to wrap this series up. I really like how it turned out. Also, the lighting in these photos may be a little off. That’s because I’ve been a bit busy lately, and I didn’t have a lot of time to make this post. But otherwise, I’m happy with how it turned out, and I hope you guys are too. It … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger || Season Two, Episode One

Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!

Hello friends! Can you believe it’s our fourth Halloween fashion show? I can’t! The bears had a lot of fun dressing up this year! They can’t wait to model their costumes for you all. First up, we have our first BAB, Brownie! She’s wearing the first-ever Halloween costume for the BABs! She’s dressed as a talk show host. I don’t really know why I came up with this, but I suppose it was genius to my 10 year old brain. Another costume from the inaugural Halloween Fashion show is this Miss America costume! It obviously used a different dress(was Rose … Continue reading Build a Bears Furever’s 4th Annual Halloween Fashion Show!

L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Three

Hello friends! I hope you guys are ready for another episode of L’Etudiant Etranger! In this episode, Gisselle will meet the whole Stone crew! Episode One Episode Two “We’re gonna be late!” Rudy whined.  He was eager to get to his cousins’  house, and while I was also looking forward to it, I knew the importance of first impressions. That’s why I had spent an hour fixing myself up, while Rudy had simply showered and thrown on a t-shirt. But see, Rudy already knew these people. They knew him, so it didn’t matter what he wore today. But for me, … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Three

L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Two

Hello friends! Welcome back to BABF. Today, we’ve got another episode of L’Etudiant Etranger. This one’s really fun, and I hope you all enjoy! By the time I woke up, sunlight filled the room. It felt like it should be much earlier. But then again, I was still operating on Normandy time. I rolled over under my thick covers. Jet lag was real. I glared at my still-packed suitcase. Silently, I cursed my past self. Why hadn’t I just unpacked last night? Sure I was tired, but I wasn’t much less tired today. I sighed and unzipped the suitcase. Might … Continue reading L’Etudiant Etranger Episode Two
