Brianna's 1st Birthday (picture post)

Color scheme: teal, tangerine, white and fuschia.

Best friend writing the first letter to B.

Time Capsule. Quote within: As soon as I saw you I knew an adventure
was about to happen. -Winnie the Pooh

Party held at my parents' house -- original outdoor party plan didn't quite
mix well with the 100+ degree heat.

Just woke up from a much needed nap. Our Onsie has been teething
molars and had been cranky all morning.

Tears still fresh in her eyes, she's finally smiling.
Getting her birthday tutu on!

Please don't mind the forehead glare -- it was hot outside.

Thanks to pinterest I made the tutu & headband! The necklace however
she borrowed from me (do I sense this will happen more and more
the older she gets?).


Lesson learned: "lots of balloons" = more than 50. Be prepared to spend
$100 on balloons next time I want "lots" of them, because 50 just didn't
satisfy me.

Beautiful girl.

She loved opening her gifts!

One of the attendees, being such a sweet onlooker. Ready for your party little

Cute shirt from B's godmother!!! Love you Jordann!

She's such a good cheeser.

Playing with one of her birthday presents.

L reading an ADORABLE book received from my cousin, Mindy.
Such a cute idea that I will write another blog post about.

Cake time! White cake with whipped cream instead of frosting.

That's my girl!

Pool time!

Thank you pinterest (yet again) for this banner idea. Easy!

Cooking string : clothes pins (painted and dried over night), pictures, and
stencil'd paper that spelled "Happy Birthday Brianna".

Gift bags. Another note to self: wash table clothes before using because
those creases are tacky. Ugh, I'm such a novice.

Tried to include as many silly faces of B's from her first year as I could.

Was a big hit!

I haven't tried it out yet, but you best believe I will be!
