Palace Pets Slumber Party Fashion Show

In keeping with this week's theme of not writing the posts I was planning on (because I'm a slacker, obviously!) I thought I'd share some recent adorableness with you today instead.

Viola has been growing like a weed and last night we swapped out her closet full of size 5T clothes for size 6T. Turns out I've been squirreling away a few (five) princess nightgowns for her as I've found them on clearance here and there. Both girls LOVE these fancy, silky pajamas but new they cost $39 from the Disney Store and I just can't bring myself to spend that much on PJs. The good news is that they often go on clearance at the end of a season and you can also find them used on eBay. I try to never spend more than $10 and pick them up whenever I can for cheap. 

In a stroke of cosmic fate it turns out that between Viola and Evangeline we have a pair of PJs to match every Palace Pet in our house. Behold, the cuteness that ensued upon discovering this correlation: 

New Palace Pets coming August 1st!

We stopped by Build-a-Bear this weekend to pick up a gift card and outfit as a birthday present for Viola's very good friend (and fellow Disney Princess fan). Viola was pretty excited about this flyer announcing two new Palace Pets coming August 1st! Viola has been working toward earning the reward of a Build-a-Bear for the past few weeks... she had her eye on the new My Little Pony Apple Jack but as soon as she saw the flyer Apple Jack fell a few rungs down her priority list.... two, to be exact!

Haven't heard of the Palace Pets yet? Lucky you!! They were an instant hit at our house... Princesses + Snuggly kittens and puppies + sparkly tiaras?  Why don't I just have my paycheck direct deposited into Disney's bank account?

Just as a side note, it seems that Rapunzel's horse Blondie has been replaced with a yellow kitten named Summer? According to Viola this is because BABW didn't have enough fabric to make a bunch of ponies.... Upon further investigation it seems that each princess has both a pony and a small furry pet (kitten, puppy, bunny, skunk, etc.) So, yeah, umm... like I was saying about my paycheck going straight to Disney?...
