Just one picture would not suffice for this Flashback Friday post. Both of these pictures were taken at my 1st birthday party and I chose them both for different reasons. NOTE: I had a phase of intense scrapbooking interest, so a lot of my pictures have the tacky scissor cut outs. Sorry mom. And sorry to myself. What was I thinking?
Obviously, I don't remember a lick of what happened on this day. I was one. Let's remember that. So, anything said in this post is my most educated guess as to what I was thinking at this time. Actually, I probably wasn't thinking anything other than, "oh, pretty presents," or "Yum, big cake."
This leads me into my first thought. Look at my cake. Holy crap. What 1 year old has a cake that big?? It looks like a freaking wedding cake. Two tiered with fresh flowers and everything. All my mom needed to do was add on a miniature bride and groom and I would have been set for life. Since this birthday, my birthday cakes have no where neared this type of creation. I mean, I chose cupcakes for my birthday cake this year. Clearly, I have lowered my expectations and have excepted the fact that no birthday will every compare to my first.
I love this picture:
I like to think that this was probably my reaction when I saw that fantastic birthday cake. My life was awesome! Gosh, I was stylish too. Thanks mom! I love my little jumpsuit outfit, complete with ruffled straps and a cute bow that tied in the middle.
I think I am going to request a replica of this birthday cake on my next birthday. I mean, this past birthday I turned 25 and my insurance lowered by over half. What do I get when I turn 26? Nothing. So, awesome cake it is.
