Gender Reveal Party

So, today is my 29th birthday. 29. The year that I will refer to as my age for the rest of my life. 🙂 It’s not really about me this year. I don’t want any presents, really. I don’t want to shop for myself. I still want to shop, don’t get me wrong, but I only want to shop for this little baby that’s set to arrive in January! That’s it! This past Thursday evening, my sister-in-law + brother-in-law threw Nic and I a fun Gender Reveal party!

gender-reveal-party-ideas-cupcakesWe invited close family to help us discover the surprise together later that evening! Everyone had to pick a “Team” – Pink or Blue. Naturally, I chose Team Pink + Nic chose Team Blue!gender-reveal-party-ideasTeam Pink vs. Team Blue – note how many more Team Pinks there were, y’all! Which p.s. I think it’s funny considering the above tally board… hmm… it seems people changed their mind mid-party for some reason.gender-reveal-party-ideasAnd here goes nothing… but everything… our future… ah I was so nervous/excited at this point:gender-reveal-party-ideasWhen we did finally open the box, I think I was in shock for a bit!

I was expecting BOTH pink AND blue balloons to pop out for some reason but low and behold, only PINK showed up for the party! I was obviously ecstatic, as you may be able to see from these photos! I think Nic was in a joyous state of shock and his reaction was so sweet.

My gut instinct all along has been that it is a girl and it goes back a couple of months ago, when Nic and I went on vacation to Charleston, South Carolina.gender-reveal-party-ideasEvery.single.baby. we saw there was a GIRL! It became so comical towards the end of our trip! Every baby!gender-reveal-party-ideasHowever, along the way, I also had boy feelings and would have been so happy to be having a boy too, of course! Baby boys are so cute!gender-reveal-party-ideasNic is seriously saying in the picture below, “Is this a joke?!” Ha, Ha. gender-reveal-party-ideasEveryone has been asking us up to the point what we wanted; a boy or a girl. We just want a healthy baby!balloons-in-box-gender-reveal-partyIt’s nice not to have to answer that question anymore + also not to have to call the baby an “It” for any longer too!
gender-reveal-partyThank you, Alicia (and Dane!) for all of your hard work for the party! We loved every second of it and will never forget it.
