Once upon a time in a small town in Missouri a litter of fourteen, yes, fourteen adorable GBGV puppies was born. There were ten girl and four boy precious puppies, one of which was nicknamed “Purple Girl”. This once upon a time was June 17, 2013, and “Purple Girl” is my little sister Bailie! I can’t believe she is already turning one!
Mom remembers the day she heard about the litter. She told Katie and I she wasn’t going to pay any attention to those Facebook posts because a puppy was out of the question. She did her best to hold off, but somehow, the stars aligned themselves, Bailie showed up on my birthday, and never left. Now Bailie is already turning one and becoming a dog! Everyone put their paws together to wish Bailie a howling happy birthday!
You know me, I love a party, especially when it involves baking! Because my sister is a banana nut, I am baking her Banana Pupcakes. They are real easy to make and fast. Best of all, they taste awesome…I did sneak a taste while working on them.
Cake alone is boring, and it is going to be 90 degrees out, so I chose Blueberry Paws Ice Cream to go on top of the Pupcakes for decorative and cooling purposes. The paws are so easy to make, and they look so fancy. I’m using blueberries because they look purple when you blend them up and purple fits “Purple Girl” when she is turning one!
I think the finished product looks pretty nice, don’t you? It even matches her fun party decorations! Click here for a downloadable PDF with my recipes! I promised Bailie she could hold a giveaway on my blog for her special day, so I am turning it over to her.
Woof! Bailie here with my one year old paws on the keyboard. You know my sister Emma is a Pawtner with PrideBites toys. I have three of them already, and I really love them! When Emma asked me what I wanted to give away, these toys were on the top of my puppy mind. I love them all, but Fishy is by far my favorite! I have traveled with Fishy, I can squeak him, shake him, take him in my pool, and he can even go in the washing machine! Because I am turning one, I’m offering one of Emma’s readers one Classic PrideBites toy! All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below and one winner will randomly be chosen after a week. Sorry, it is only open to US residents. Good luck to everyone!
Thank you to Easy who sent me a birthday greeting per email 🙂 What a charming fellow…maybe he likes me, you know what I mean, wink, wink…
I would also like to wish my thirteen brothers and sisters, wherever they are, a wonderful first birthday as well!
Stay tuned Thursday for photos from Bailie’s actual birthday! Follow me on Facebook for some photos during the day tomorrow if you can’t wait until Thursday! Wednesday, I have my next Peanuts post, don’t miss it, who will it be this week?
