NaBloPoMo Day 14: Fairy-Princess-Ballerinas

I've always had a hatred strong dislike for the colour pink. I loathed girlie things. I boycotted all things fairy, princess, and ballerina.

Until I had a daughter.

For some reason, almost all of her clothing items are PINK! It wasn't by choice. It just sort of happened. Despite my pleading requests, friends and family kept giving her pink things! It turns out that the kid looks pretty cute in pink. Plus, now that pink is "the" colour of Breast Cancer Awareness, how can I hate pink??? I think I love pink now.

Little One just turned 2 on Remembrance Day and we had her 2nd Birthday party yesterday. It was a girls only party. Normally, I wouldn't segregate or discriminate the sexes (I don't feel it's right to do so), but I was just too tired to have a HUGE party with ALL the kids.

It was a fairy-princess-ballerina tutu party. All the little girls came in tutus and I had tiaras for each of them. We had Tinkerbell decorations and the loot bags were all Tinkerbell inspired. The pièce de résistance was the stunning birthday cake made by my gorgeous and talented friend, Maria.

Every princess-fairy-ballerina's dream cake: Sparkly butterflies and pretty flowers.

Birthday pics will be posted sometime this week!

It was a really good cake too!! Yum!
I know, I know...Pink is a pretty colour. I think I always hated it as a kid because I was always FORCED to wear it. My Mom and her sisters always wanted me to wear pink dresses. Being the stubborn, head-strong kid I was (Hubby will tell you I still am!), I refused to wear pink! LOL! Now, I think it's pretty. I don't really have anything pink of my own though! Little One's wardrobe contains 99% pink outfits. LOL!
