There's a little story about how I suddenly became obsessed with the cute little bears from the Disney movie Brave.

Last week at school, I was looking through my wallet for a buck for the vending machine.  The wallet was one I'd just swapped over to--one I'd grabbed of Rob's mom's when we were home for Christmas.  I figured before even looking that I didn't have any dollar bills.....but I reeeaally wanted a pop, so I checked.  Amazingly, barely sticking out of one of the credit card slots was a bill!  I yanked it out, silently thanking Julie for leaving me a buck.  Except when I pulled it was a hundy, not a one.

Since Rob's dad said to keep it, Rob and I decided to use it to buy things that Julie might have bought for Mace.  Everyone knows Julie was a pretty good shopper, so we won't find the great stuff she would have found. But I like the idea of getting Mace a few things that we wouldn't have otherwise--with Julie in mind.

So have you seen Brave?  Because we did just a few weeks ago and thought it was adorable!  Especially the little triplet boys in the movie.  That turn in to three little bears.


I mean probably not actually.  But when I started shopping at the Disney store (because I don't know anyone who loves Disney World more than Julie did......We can't WAIT to take Mace!) they had the plush bears of those cute little triplets and I basically fell in love with their giant heads and cute poses.  And how sweet and classic looking they are without being overly cartoonish.  Julie's style and our style.

Also decided that I pretty desperately needed this queen mama bear mug.  Mace got the baby bear mug for someday......

Bear + baby bear mug = 89 surprise bucks still to spend from Grandma Julie to Mace!  (Disney Twice Upon a Year Sale ruled).

And the moral of this story is that I still had to borrow a dollar to buy a pop.
