Kind of like those vacationing gnomes.


We have a house guest. All this week, Moxie Mona is visiting eight to ten different states a day to spread Moxie love to everyone, making it the grandest and fastest trip a traveling doll has ever taken in the history of traveling dolls.

So, naturally we went to the farmer's market. And out for ice cream.


Mona hanging with the dairy cow. "I feel a wee bit underdressed."


We put her to work at our favorite ice cream shoppe.

There's lots more to do around here yeah, like, uh, hanging with friends while sipping frozen hot chocolate or eating designer cupcakes. Pretty much only things involving food.

But one of the awesome things about Northwest Indiana is that we are just about a half hour away from both Illinois and Michigan.

And I've been into taking lots of field trips lately (especially to Chicago) as
I'm working on this bucket list, you see.


She ain't afraid of no dino.


Willis Tower, what-ev. Always and forever the Sears Tower.


She was going to have a difficult time saying goodbye. I always do.

But she's off to new places tomorrow.

  1. Perhaps it's because it's so late, but I found this post freaking hilarious.

    Does she want to come to montana? :)

  2. So funny! She did do some traveling. I love the one where she's serving ice cream to Gray. And the Chicago pictures.

  3. "I ain't afraid of no dino." Cracked me UP!

  4. Good to know that Mona ain't afraid of no dino. Good to know.

    I don't know what it is about your pictures of Mona, but they have been some of my favorites ever since they were added to the Flickr group. I love Mona's silhouette. Looks like she had a great time!

  5. It looks like Mona is about to crush the Sears Tower.

    No, Mona, No!

  6. This is so funny. What a great way to start my day.

    You are so right about Willis Tower. Six of us were in Chicago last week to see U2. Even before we got there, we talked about the tower's name change, but as soon we saw the city all of us shouted, "The Sears Tower." Ten years from now people will still be doing the same thing.


  7. Oh, we did this with a Flat Stanley once for my husband's cousin. So fun! And I love the photos you took with her!

  8. I feel like we were all meant to be friends because not everyone loves to plan events around food like we do.
    Love these shots--especially the one of her by the SEARS tower!

  9. I feel like I'm getting to know Mona pretty well. Cute photos you have :) You are a funny gal!

  10. Ah, there is Ivy with Mona. What fun! Thank you, Stephanie, for such a fantastic post. What an amazing time you showed our girl.

    Glad to see that you giveaway for the baby wearing gear is going so well too. Really love everything you do on your site.

  11. Love it, especially the "underdressed" part. I love Chicago!

  12. So cool that you are in such close proximity to so many wonderful landmarks and things to do!

  13. I would love to be that close to Chicago! And I, too adore your pictures. Looks like a blast. :)

  14. Too funny, but I can't help but feel that I missed something...

  15. We should send out those cows next time...nothing says Moxie like a nicely dressed cow. ;)

  16. Mona looks like she felt right at home but then of course she would! : )

    And now I want to go back to Chicago!

  17. My brain is such mush, Steph. I had to read that title several times and try to understand why you called it the vaccinating gnome. I finally realized I was reading the word wrong. ;)


  18. What a great idea to put Mona to work! Wish I would have thought of that!


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
