Happy Birthday Jackson!

My friend Brittany's son, Jackson celebrated his first birthday this weekend! Brittany and her husband just moved into a new house, which is ADORABLE. She is just one of those people who can make any room look like it came straight out of a "Pottery Barn" catalog. I WISH I was that talented. If it wouldn't have looked ridiculous, I SO would have walked in every room and taken a picture so you guys could really get what I'm saying. Maybe another day Brittany will let me take pics of her house. :)

Brittany and I used to work together, in fact, she was my right hand. I don't get to see her as often as I would like, but when we do see each other, it doesn't feel like it has been long at all. I still e-mail and text her often just to keep her up to date on what's going on! She and I think alike in many ways so I can always count on her to listen to me vent and know exactly where I'm coming from! It's amazing how God puts certain people in your life for certain reasons.

Jackson likes Mickey Mouse (yes, a child after my own heart) and his birthday was themed around it. However, I'm so impressed with how Brittany decorated for the party. It was Mickey Mouse themed but not over the top in the cheesy department (which she said was her goal). :) She just amazes me with her creativity!!

The birthday table had this cute balloon arrangement and was so cute. She had used a black and white polka dot table cloth on the table and a red with white polka dots on top of it to incorporate the black, red and white of Mickey Mouse.

And this was the birthday cake. I absolutely loved the polka dots. See the little buckets on the other side of the cake.......

Well those buckets held the cake. How cute is that? (Notice the tablecloths that I mentioned)

And here is the most important part of the party:

Jackson enjoyed the cake until he hit himself in the face with a spoon. He is adorable and gets cuter each time I see him! Happy Birthday Jackson!
