Hi friends!

On Friday evening, we found out that baby DeWire is a BOY! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you've already seen our news, but I wanted to share a few photos and details from the party. 

On Thursday morning, I had my 20 week ultrasound where they check the baby's anatomy and are able to see the gender. Praise God, everything looked great during the scan! That afternoon, I dropped an envelop (with the gender inside) off at a local bakery where I ordered cupcakes for the reveal. The baker baked vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with blue or pink icing in the middle (in our case, blue). Friday afternoon I picked up the cupcakes for the party that night. Not knowing the gender myself, I had to trust that everything went smoothly and that the correct gender was in the cupcakes! HA. Being the worrier I am, the thought of a mix up did cross my mind a few times. Fortunately, everything went well! At the party that night, we revealed the gender by biting into the cupcakes to see if the icing in the middle was blue or pink. No one knew ahead of time, none of our family at the party or Todd and I! This made it really exciting for everyone! As you know, the icing was BLUE. Todd was hoping for a boy, so as you can see from his hands up in the air, he was thrilled! I was happy either way! My shocked reaction was pretty funny, but I know I would have responded like that if it were pink, too (LOL). You think about what the gender will be for months, so when you actually know, it's shocking and surreal! Anyway, now that we know we are having a boy, I'm excited to plan the nursery and can't wait to buy a few cute baby clothes and SHOES! Baby shoes are so cute I can hardly stand it. I'm thinking a little pair of TOMS or Nike sneakers!? :)

I've also shared my outfit details from the party in this post. I absolutely LOVE this cold shoulder mock neck top from Nordstrom. The color is so feminine and the cold shoulder style is right on trend right now. It comes in light pink and olive and is on sale for $29.49 (all sizes are available, too)! I obviously wore the wrong color to the party, but I couldn't resist wearing pink when I saw this top online! I sized up for the bump and got a medium so I can wear it throughout the rest of my pregnancy. The oversized fit made it a nice tunic length for leggings, too. I styled the top with my black H&M leggings and Halogen gray over the knee boots. I love gray and light pink together! The boots are sold out, but Macy's has a pretty much identical pair (sooo pretty) on sale with an extra 15% off right (code TWODAY).

Thank you so much for reading and for all your love and support!
