After months of having gone mysteriously MIA in our house, Disney Princesses Mulan and Jasmine have been rediscovered and joyfully reunited with BFF’s Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, Pocahontas, and the rest of Magnolia‘s crazy cast of tiny roving characters.
Cause for celebration — the girls are back in town!
Magnolia seemed to know intuitively that they needed to start putting themselves back out there again, so she let them accompany her to an exciting day of Pre-K this week. But they’d been inadvertently lost a long, long time…. They needed bigger adventures.
When they randomly turned up yesterday in my purse on my way into Manhattan, it was all, “Let’s party!”
Plenty of room on the subway when you’re only 3 and 1/2 inches tall….
First, they took a moment to admire the pretty church on the corner of 5th Avenue and 12th Street…. Manhattan‘s so great, isn’t it, girl?
Then they found a kindred spirit in a shop window….
Next, they considered a drop-in spin class at Equinox….
But they quickly came to their senses and made a beeline for lunch at Cafe Cluny instead. Two iced teas, please, and make it snappy!
After lunch, they caught a movie at the Quad…. Aww, this takes me back, Jas — you?
Later, they picked up some continuing ed catalogs at The New School…. You know you can’t just kick back with princess status, honey! Girlfriend’s got to EVOLVE.
Then they strolled over to the Union Square Greenmarket to admire the spring bounty….
Time for an afternoon treat sold by a cute farmer’s market boy! It’s been waaaaaayyy too long….
Daaamn…. Back to Brooklyn so soon.
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for New York!
