Hello and Happy Monday my loves!!!
I hope all of you had a very great and productive weekend. Mine was a blast. I got to spend a very special moment with some of my family and closest friends.
I'm generally a very private person so lots of my innermost feelings and personal accomplishments, milestones don't really get shared here. I can't really explain why I'm like this; it's just one of my many quirky personality traits.
However, this moment was so special and dear to me that I wanted to make sure to document it in all of its glory.
If you all aren't already aware, my honey and I are expecting this December. It's hard to tell from my recent outfit posts-here, here, and here-because at over 21 weeks I still haven't developed much of a baby bump. Believe me, I've been comparing pregnancy bumps and wondering why I still look so abnormally normal for someone who is halfway through her pregnancy but the doctors assure that our little Peanut is just fine in here.
The honey and I found out at the end of April and I told my Mother and Sister about the news with an ultrasound and a card on Mother's Day. They were ecstatic, as were our friends and the rest of our families. My family in particular hasn't had a new baby in 12 years so everyone is super excited to spoil our little one-great for the baby; an extreme Catch 22 for us as parents.
Anyhow, our gender reveal was this past weekend and it was such a joy to finally find out the gender of our little one. Please be advised that this post is pic heavy before reading on.
I didn't want the traditional invites so I went with something creative and bold...
This design came in a package set with cupcake toppers, a banner, etc. I ordered the set from
Debbie did everything perfectly and exactly how I asked.
Everything was printed on card stock so I had to cut the pieces out myself , which I was totally OK with.
***Homemade by my besties coworker. Cake baking is a pastime of hers so I was charged very little for this gorgeous 3 tier deliciousness***
The table setup...
***All decor was purchased from The Dollar Tree and the thrift store along with the dollar bins at Michael's***
We made everyone take a vote for the gender before the actual reveal. The final vote had Kennedy winning at a 7-5 vote.
We gathered around to cut into the cake at 5PM sharp.
The parents-honey and I!
I elected him to do the cutting because I was shaking way too profusely to be able to hold the knife steady.
As soon as I saw a peek of the color, I went absolutely NUTSO!!!
Our little Peanut is a.....
A BOY...A LITTLE FELLA...A LAD...MOMMA'S BOY...DADDY'S BEST FRIEND!!!
This feeling is truly inexplicable.
Funny that we both wore blue too!!
We couldn't be happier. We both wanted a boy!!!
Now my beautiful Princess goddaughter will have a 'boyfriend' and her mother and I can finally plan playdates...
My mother is already planning for him to have his own closet at her house...
And my besties can't wait to spoil him rotten along with the rest of the family!!!
We are totally excited about parenthood and the fabulous journey with our son.
I will try not to bombard you all with new and exciting updates (his first smile, first Christmas, the first time he holds his head up, etc) about our boy but I won't promise you anything at all.
Just bear with me please!!!
I know this has been an extremely long post so thanks a bunch for reading.
