Happy National Princess Week!

I'm back from Disney World!
I must say, coming back to the real world is a little tough after being surrounded by the magic of Disney. After spending a week riding Splash Mountain over and over and eating delicious treats like Dole Whips (seriously, has anyone ever tried this? AMAZING) the last thing I want to do is go to work or do boring chores like laundry. Alas! One cannot live in Disney World all the time.

I figured the best way to make this transition a bit easier was to talk about National Princess Week! Julie Andrews has teamed up with Target and the Walt Disney Company to launch the first National Princess Week, a celebration of princesses to last from April 22 to April 28. Of course, a lot of this is consumerism-based--there's going to be a 10th anniversary re-release of The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2 as a 2-pack and sales on various Disney princess-related merchandise--but it's an awesome idea and will hopefully spur on the imaginations of children everywhere. Maybe my thoughts on this have been influenced by my experience surrounded by little princesses frequenting the Bippity Boppity Boutique for a week.

Anyway, since The Princess Diaries is one of my FAVORITE book series and I harbor an appreciation for a variety of Disney princesses, I decided to partake in this celebration. Check back for a few cool princess-related posts this week!
