Uno. Part One.

I'll start as honestly as possible:

I just did a giant huffy breath and shuddered at the keyboard. It's not that I don't want to tell you how amazing Lucy's birthday was (I do, I really do), I've just lost the will to live. I'm exhausted. It's been a long weekend of work, and, bless Shelley's heart, she shared her sickness with me. But I want to share this. It was so special. However -- I'm not exactly A game Susie, so we'll go with first grade rules on this blog post: You get what you get AND you don't throw a fit.

Today, Lucy and her birthday.
Tomorrow, all the ungodly amount of work that I lovingly put into it and will NEVER hold over Shelley's head. I would never...

Oh, babe. I can't believe you're one. You were fabulous today. Thanks for taking a four hour nap pre-party to prep for game day. Thanks for somehow keeping your outfit pristine. Thanks for letting me take over your party and making it all I hoped it could be.

We'll start with game-day outfit.

1. Pigtails.
2. Pearls. Repeat performance.
3. Pink "sugar and spice t-shirt".
4. Tutu.
5. Leopard print leggings.
Don't bother asking why. The question is "why not". We wanted to make sure that ALL of Lucy was in her outfit. I think we achieved The Look we were going for. Point Shelley and Susie.

I'm just going to go for it from here. It's a first birthday. I think you can manage the commentary on your own. I'm confident with your picture-deduction skills. I'll be back for the "wrap up". Just remember I took 254 pictures, so this could be worse. And don't mind. Her face is so cute. You'd do the same.

Special does not cover this.
Amazing is not broad enough.
It was utter perfection.

And now I'm going to bed.
Part Two tomorrow. It's a date.


  1. I love all the pictures! Lucy looks adorable in her special birthday outfit and her sweet little pigtails! It looks like she had a great party! Can't wait for part 2!

  2. 254. that is insane. I can relate. Matthew is coming up on his 3rd bday. and I never even blogged about his 2nd bday b/c there was so many pix. You are such a wonderful auntie.

  3. Those pictures are adorable. What a darling baby girl!


Tell me about it. Oh and thanks for validating my life.
