I’m really excited about this Ultimate Blog Party. Is that weird? In case you didn’t know, 5minutesformom is hosting a blog party so everyone can “mingle” at each other’s blogs. How fun is that? They are giving away boatloads of prizes and there are even some party favors for everyone! This morning at like 9am I checked their site and already 150 people were partying. Now I think the count is up to 225!
So, I’ve been thinking about how to introduce myself to the blogging mamas in the blogosphere…the blogdom…the blogland. Since we’re doing a week long party, I thought some party info would be appropriate. I thought I’d share some of the best parties of my life with you. I’m digging through my pictures as we speak (what did we do before digital cameras? Oh yeah, we dug through pictures…) to show you some beauties like my thriftstore 16th birthday, my idiot-photographer wedding and maybe even some vintage stuff like my smurf party. But today, to get this party started, I’m going to share the most recent party we’ve had around here. My daughter, Lydia turned 1 in January. The most amazing and eventful year of my life and Lydia started it off with a bang.
Here’s my little girl 2.5 seconds after her first taste of a cookie cake:
I’m all about themed parties, so hers was a Purple Fairy party. Everyone had to come dressed in purple! The guys loved it, of course. So, tell me about the 1st birthday parties at your house!
