The Bachelor’s Molly Mesnick Shares Details Of Riley’s First Birthday Party


From our friends at Popsugar Moms!

Believe it or not, it’s been just over a year since The Bachelor couple Molly and Jason Mesnick shared their baby shower with us. Since that time, they added Riley to their family (making Jason’s son Ty, 8, a big brother) and experienced all of the firsts that new parents see throughout the year.

Just as she did with her shower, Molly didn’t want to plan a “traditional” first birthday party for her daughter. “Since most of the guests were adults, I didn’t want the party to be too childish,” Molly said. “Rather, I catered to the adults with small accents that played into a first birthday party!” That meant catering to more grown-up needs like having a working bar stocked with adult drinks and bar-like seating courtesy of online home furnishings retailer and a photo booth filled with props her family and friends would use. For sweets, they turned to one of our favorite West Coast bakers, Jenny Keller from Jenny Cookies, and for lunch, they kept the table full of comfort foods.

Teen in ‘Affluenza’ Case Gets Rehab, Not Jail, for DUI that Killed Four

02/06/2014 at 02:10 PM EST

A judge on Wednesday ordered a Texas teenager who was sentenced to 10 years’ probation in a drunken-driving crash that killed four people to go to a rehabilitation facility paid for by his parents.

Judge Jean Boyd again decided to give no jail time for Ethan Couch, defense attorney Reagan Wynn and prosecutors told reporters after the hearing, which was closed to the public. Prosecutors had asked Boyd to sentence him to 20 years in state custody on charges related to two people who were severely injured.

The sentence stirred fierce debate, as has the testimony of a defense expert who says Couch’s wealthy parents coddled him into a sense of irresponsibility. The expert termed the condition “affluenza.”

Wynn and prosecutor Richard Alpert would not identify the facility where Couch will go or where it is located. The teen’s family previously had offered to pay for Couch to go to a $450,000-a-year rehabilitation center near Newport Beach, Calif.

Couch, who’s currently in state custody, is expected to receive alcohol and drug rehab, and could face prison time if he runs away from the facility or violates any other terms of his probation, Alpert said.

There is no minimum amount of time Couch must spend in the facility before his release, prosecutor Riley Shaw said.

Wynn ripped the media and the public’s focus on “affluenza” and said that his client was misunderstood.

He said reporting of the Couch case had “so twisted the facts that were actually presented in court that I don’t think the truth will ever be able to come out now.”

“It was ridiculous to think that we walked into court and said, ‘Oh, this is a rich white kid,’ and she decided to probate him,” he said.

But Alpert accused Wynn of hypocrisy, pointing out that a defense witness made the comment in the first place.

“His witnesses don’t say things by accident,” Alpert said. “So they thought maybe that would help – that’s my interpretation – and it blew up on them. It was a stupid thing to say.”
