The big ONE.

Well hello, all my faithful readers and bloggy friends.

I have finally recovered enough from the big 0-1 party, to catch up on my now neglected piddly little blog.

Tomorrow I will introduce you to this weeks Featured Favorite Blogger whom I know you will all love as I do...but first things first.....The Party.

Let me just give you all who do not know me as well as others, a little insight into all that is me. I am slightly crafty. I've been known to sew a button or two and I can make a mean bow. I am also the type who doesn't do things...a little.

It wasn't 1, or even 2, trips to the craft store....nope. It was 7 trips to 3 different craft stores looking for the PERFECT ribbon, the EXACT cupcake stand, the ONLY HAIR CLIP IN THE WORLD that will pull the entire party together.

Then there was the countless hours spent on the Internet looking at plates. PLATES! And don't get me started on the cupcake toppers. (And if you're looking for creative and beautiful toppers from the lady who did mine, go to her Etsy store here.)

My sister-in-law, Celena, was the cupcake and cake pop artist extraordinaire. The cupcake and cake pop stand were made by me and my trusty glue gun with 7 different types of ribbon. Told ya.

Considering how many children were going to be here and my really, really, not wanting them all running around my house and playing with the pool table or attempting to drown themselves in a freezing cold swimming pool, we thought it a good idea to get a bouncy house. Genius. This thing is freaking GENIUS, I say! Also, a great work out. I was in it for all of about 5 minutes and was exhausted. I have no idea how my nephews were in it all day long. Not kidding. All. Day. And then came back the next day for seconds!

Do they have one of these at the gym?

All in all, the day was amazing and fun and I was an exhausted grumpy lump by the end of the day. I mean grumpy to the point that my parents were telling me I needed to go to bed. Lol. I got sent to bed by my parents at 34. Boogie made out in the gift department and I am knee deep in Thank You cards.

World Best Dad Award goes to the white version of DJ Lance Rock, otherwise known as Rutherford.

Big THANK YOU to everyone that helped me pull all of this together, Momo & Papa, Mom & Dad, Celena and Rutherford and a big HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that came out to celebrate our baby girls big day with us. It's a day we will never forget.
