Pearl is ONE.
She can't believe it either!

Danny and I had a small party for her with both of our families.  It was so fun!  I have always been a firm believer in celebrating one's Birthday to the max. I think that's why my Birthday is the best day of the year... until now.  I can't believe how much fun I had at Pearl's party.

Cher made some AMAZINGLY tasty cupcakes, Almond Fudge and Creamy Lemon.  
Everything else we ate was just a side note.  We had cold cut subs and chips.  Easy peasy.

I made this cupcake stand out of three simple ingredients: glass candle sticks, plates and epoxy.  Total cost: $7.

Everyone that came to Pearl's party was so nice.  She was definitely spoiled!
*Sorry for the upcoming picture overload...

I honestly think she knew it was her special day.  She marched around the house with perma-smile the whole time.

 This is her opening her favorite gift, a mermaid Barbie.  I know it seems weird to give a 1 year old a Barbie but she was so excited for it.  I knew she wanted one because Millie always brings hers over to our house and Pearl goes nuts for it.  She got a lot of other toys and some really cute clothes, we're both excited for!

After opening presents, we brought out the cake.
 I don't know if you have ever been to a 1 year old's party but any I have been to when the cake is placed in front of them they poke at it a little and then they're done.  Since Pearl loves to eat, I wondered how she would react to having an entire cake placed in front of her with no restrictions.
 She barely waited for the smoke to settle before... she was double fisting it into her mouth...


 Seriously, she wasn't messing around!  She was alternating BIG handfuls of cake to her mouth until we finally took it away from her!

 We realized that Pearl isn't too proud to eat half of a cake... in public.... by herself.
 She totally would've kept eating too.  Love this chubby chub.
And a little milk to wash it down.

 Pearl loves her Grandparents.
