Oh, how far we've come.
When the world first met Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, she was an extremely tan little meatball with a hair poof bigger than her fist, who was going to star in a new MTV reality show called Jersey Shore. And over the course of almost three years and six seasons, we've seen Snooks grow (not physically, unless you count her baby bump) right in front of our eyes.
Now she's turning 25!
The young TV star danced into our lives and showed everyone that house music, taking shots during the day and dancing anywhere at any time are some of life's necessities. She's also known to reveal a little too much information from time to time, but that's why we love her.
Aside from witnessing her brand skyrocket, the greatest moment was seeing this guidette fall in love with a guy named Jionni LaValle and giving birth to their adorable son Lorenzo. Yep, Snooki's a mom!
We're not certain what her 25th birthday will bring, but one thing's for sure—she'll be joined by a pair of handsome fellas who love her to pieces, so that already sounds like a good time!
Happy birthday, Snooks!
