So we're celebrating Lu's first birthday on Saturday. Hard to believe. At this time last year I was pregnant. And pissed!

Anyhow, this morning we motored over to Party Depot, or whatever it's called, where I am shamed to confess that I fell prey to the pink-gingham I'M ONE! Mylar balloon. Along with marabou-trimmed princess-style birthday hat, guaranteed to stay on Lucy's head for five seconds or less.

I did, however, manage to resist the Elmo pinata. Or at least I've managed so far.

Pray for me...
