Default OOOPS! Added late addition malt early....

Not paying attention like i usually do, I added the 1lb late addition dme
at the begginning when I added the 6lbs lme. What will this do to my blonde
ale. I was trying to make it nice and light.

Your blonde ale will be a little darker that's all. No worries.

It won't be that much darker. You probably won't even notice the difference.

If you added 6 lbs LME at the start it would make no difference if you added 1 lb DME at start or late. It is the long boil on the LME that is going to give you a little darker color. But if you didn't add any crystal or darker steeped grains you should still get a decent light color.
