It's My Party and I'll Poop If I Want To

I'm sure you are all still trying to recover from my moving post last week about Fluffette's entrance in to the world.  Well, wipe your tears, my friend, because you are about to DIE over her cuteness.

This past Saturday we celebrated her first birthday in style.  I, apparently, did not get the memo that I'm not Tori Spelling and that I don't have an unlimited budget to celebrate the fact that, against all odds, Fluffette and I both survived her first year of life.  I will say that most of the decorations were either bought on sale or made by me and my assistants friends and family.

When I started thinking about the guest list for her birthday, I figured there would be about 20 people there.  Then, as I began to write out my list, I got a little nervous when the list reached 50 invitations.  "Oh well, nobody will show up."  Then the RSVP's started coming in and my anxiety reached "holy shyt" mode.  There were 70 people including kids at my house on Saturday.  SEVEN-TEE!!  I do not live in a castle and I get stressed out when there are 15 people here at Thanksgiving.  'Take Xanax' was the number one thing on my to-do list.  Fluffette is so lucky to have so many people that love her and mama needs to start burning bridges so we don't have that many people in our house EVER AGAIN.

Go grab a glass of wine.....sit back.....relax....and enjoy the picture show of my Fluffette's Big Day!

Drink Bar: Sparkling Pink Lemonade, Organic Pink Lemonade, Unsweet Tea and mini water bottles wrapped in Washi Tape.  We had assorted beer and Pink Lemonade Margaritas (effing delicious) on the back porch.  

Munchies Table: Fruit Bar, Veggie Bar, Chicken salad in lettuce cups, Chicken Ceasar Parmesan Crisps, Enchilada dip on baguettes, mini corn dogs, Black bean and corn salsa.  

Dessert Table: Pink Lemonade Cupcakes, Strawberry Popcorn, Chocolate  covered marshmallows with sprinkles, Yogurt pretzels, homemade iced sugar cookies and oreos.  The parents hated me for the sugar coma I put their kids in to.  

I am so thankful that my mom gets drunk and buys Martha Stewart craft utensils on HSN so we could make this banner!  #she'sgonnakillmeforsayingthat

I purchased her outfit from Pampered Rugrats on  Facebook.  I told her what I wanted and she made it!  Size up on these. She wears 18 months and this is 24 months.  Headband purchased on etsy.  

What can I say....she likes blue balls.  #justbecauseyougetolderdoesn'tmeanyougetmoremature

"you go to hell mom.  You go straight to hell"
Yes, I popped her hand when she tried to rip her decorations off her highchair. 

"Why are all these people staring at me while key??"

Fluffette licked off a few handfuls of icing then proceeded to feed icing to me,  Mr. Fluff, several kids and her Papa.  Such a proud moment that my daughter likes to share food....unlike her mother.  

That might look like her hair standing up, but I'm pretty sure they are devil ears because right after this.......

she sure did shyt in the the middle of her party.....while people were waiting.  #oneofmyproudestmommymoments

It took no less than 12 hours for her to open one gift.  I ended up opening 98% of the gifts myself.  

I forgot to take a picture when they were on a cute serving platter but these were a hit.  I still have some in my freezer.  Mini ice cream sandwiches dipped in sprinkles then wrapped in wax paper and washi tape.  

 If I remember, I will post a few of the recipes that seemed to be a big hit at the party.

Everyone seemed to have a great time (because we served beer and Pink Lemonade Margaritas) and told me that I set the bar pretty high for her future birthdays.  I quickly replied that every year from here on out, we will take Fluffette to a nice dinner at McDonalds and just show her pictures from this party.  It is A LOT of work!!!

Fluffette is pretty much the cutest little lady this side of the Mississippi.  She was such a good sport and didn't have a meltdown AT.ALL.  I was quite shocked since she's never been around that many people.    I always knew she was super awesome and she proved me right on Saturday.  Love this little Boogie like I love Sour Cream enchiladas with rice and beans.......and that's a crap ton of love, yo.
