Gender reveal party!

I love the idea of a gender reveal party.  As I had previously mentioned in an earlier post, I had gotten this idea form one of my best friends and was so excited to host this party.  My husband on the other had just wanted to know the baby’s gender right then and there at the doctors appointment.  He played along with me…after much convincing!!  I only had one week to get it organized as he wasn’t going to wait much longer!

You can get information on both our looks on my previous blog post.

My sister-in-law Raquel was so generous and helped me organize the entire party!  She has such a great creative eye and decorated our place beautifully.  The most important party piece was the cake.  I love Susie Cakes bakery and decided to have them bake my cake.  At my 16 week doctors appointment,  I had the radiation technician write down the baby’s gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope.  We then brought the envelope to the baker and had them put either pink of blue icing in the middle.  When we cut the cake we found out what we were having.

I am unable to post the video of the cake reveal here but you can click on my Instagram feed/link to see the video there.  We were both very excited and happy.

We are so pleased to announce that we are having a beautiful little GIRL!!  We couldn’t be more thrilled.  Its now time to decide on the name and get started on her nursery!!

Thank you for sharing this amazing journey with us.  I look forward to sharing more with you all!

With Love…

    1. Congrats!!! One of my friends did a cake for her reveal and I thought that was such a fun idea. WE found out cutting the cake as well so we didn’t have a chance to tell anyone before or else we probably would have.
      Its such an exciting time….such a great feeling knowing you have a little one growing inside you!!
