Fit for a Princess

Last weekend Paul and Tyler went camping with the Cub Scouts, so Alyssa and I stayed home to have a Girls Princess Weekend! I wanted to make the weekend special since it would just be the two of us.

On Saturday morning, we went down to Coconut Point to do some shopping -- the Disney store was, of course, about the only store Alyssa had any interest in visiting, so we did that first!

Since the Princess and the Frog movie was about to be released on DVD, the store was abuzz with activity. I bought her the Princess Tiana doll, which made her day! Then, we went to my favorite store, Ann Taylor Loft, where I happened to have a gift card to spend! Yippee!

After that we spent some time playing at the playground, and while we were there, a Disney store employee came over and handed us a flyer for a Princess and the Frog party they were having that day. Wow! Just our luck -- a princess party on our princess weekend! We hung around long enough to go to the party, where they had the girls dance to Princess and the Frog music videos and made a Princess and the Frog craft. Too cute!

After that, we stopped at another playground, before dressing up for a visit to Ladies Night at my hair salon. Alyssa was the hit of the party! She looked so pretty in her black party dress, and she brought her Princess Tiana doll, which was a fun topic of conversation for all the ladies! This made her feel like a princess even more!

The next morning, I made a royal breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, and we wore our tiaras all morning! Everything we referred to was "royal!" We had a ball roll playing!

What a wonderful way to spend a girls weekend -- I think we'll both always remember it!
