Gender Reveal Party!

Recently, we had our ultrasound to find out whether we are expecting a bean or a beanette! It has been crazy-busy lately with my brother's wedding coming up, so we wanted to have a small gender-reveal party that was simple and fun for everyone involved.

I went to Target and found some adorable favor boxes in the $1 section (I seriously love the dollar section...). Then I bought an assortment of candies and filled 6 boxes with blue/green candies and 6 boxes with red/pink candies. I found some fun, decorative tape to put on the outside of the boxes so that no one could tell what was inside. 

Then, Josh and I went to the ultrasound to find out the news! It was fun to have a moment for just the two of us to learn our baby's gender. I'm not huge on surprises anyway, so I'm glad I had a chance to learn in private (well, with two ultrasound techs that were complete strangers...). Then we hopped in the car and drove to one of our favorite meeting places, a mexican restaurant called Acapulco. 

My sisters Morna and Elsie met us there, as well as my in-laws and my dad. My mom, sadly, was sick with a really high fever and couldn't make it (but we all called her on the phone later).

It was the perfect way to share our fun news and celebrate a little with everyone. Needless to say, we are ecstatic (and still feeling a little numb!). 

I tried uploading the video- but alas, it has decided to not work for me. So, I will just have to tell you. We are going to have a baby GIRL! 

I'm so excited! I would have been just as happy with a boy, but my creative bent obviously runs towards girly stuff so I'm glad I will be able to put all my ideas to good use. And girls are just awesome. I've had a feeling most of the pregnancy that we were going to have a girl, so it's nice to know that my motherly instincts are off to a good start. 

Happy Wednesday to you!
