01.30.14 Happiest 1st Birthday to my littlest gem Gabriella. I love you with all my heart, mind and soul.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to shower my princess with a big ol' lavish party with tulle table skirts and glitter pops and gigantic balloons or pink bows... how I wanted too! But with our plans to move (like soon), I wasn't in the time frame to plan and execute a party. (still breaks my heart) but it didn't mean I couldn't celebrate my girl. Thanks to the amazing idea of my colleague Christine, I hosted a "Breakfast with the Princess" at home, with just us. I made these cute invitations and rolled them into scrolls. I handed the boys and Grandma Vicky an invite when I got home Friday night. Saturday morning, I pulled myself together and started making all the items on the menu. It was so good, I didn't get a chance to snag a pic of the spread. The blueberry pancakes flew off the plate! (score!!)
My peanut didn't understand the madness, she was just delighted to be eating.
