In My Mailbox #275

Finally back home and blogging again :D Yay! This post is going to be all kinds of huge.

SO happy. They were crazy expensive to buy online, so so glad I found them. Eee. And all the plushes :D They are the cutest. Just, sigh. I love all of this so much. This movie is the best. And all of these items means the most to me :) Wishing I could have gotten the Maui doll too, but he was pretty huge and so so heavy. And expensive. Maybe some other time, though ;) So pleased that I found most of what I wanted.
