I get really, really
excited about birthdays, so obviously I had to treat Brooke du jour’s 2nd
birthday like an actual birthday. As I started planning, I knew I wanted to
include my favorite things: dessert, pink and a fit-and-flare party dress.
I spotted Edoughble cookie dough on a friend’s Facebook page and instantly knew it would be
perfect. Isn’t edible cookie dough the most BRILLIANT idea you’ve ever heard?
If you’re like me, you’ve been eating regular cookie dough your whole life and
haven’t died from salmonella poisoning yet, but edible cookie dough sounds
safer. Plus, there are sprinkles in
Obviously there were
a million ways I could incorporate pink into this post. As a self-proclaimed
pink-aholic, the possibilities really were endless. But, the Steph Shives Studio balloon from my 22nd birthday was such a hit that I knew I
needed to continue the tradition!
As for the dress, I
had a very clear vision of what I was looking for. After a 4-hour marathon at
the mall (I know, being a fashion blogger
is really hard
), I found the perfect little black dress. I can wear it so
many different ways, but the subtle stripes and organza fabric give it a little
something extra.

I know this all
sounds a little silly, but when I started Brooke du jour two years ago, my main
goal was to make this blog a happy, fun place. I hope you get a kick out of
this post and many more posts to come. Thank you for helping me celebrate! xo

    As a serious cookie dough addict, I can't believe I haven't heard of Edoughble before! BTW, if I had to describe your blog in 1 word, it would be happy. You're always wearing the biggest smile and the bright colors/prints. So, mission accomplished and happy 2nd anniversary!
