Gender Reveal Fiesta!

I'm finally getting around to sharing our gender reveal party pics because:
1. I'm pregnant and tired.
2. I've been hitting the overtime like a boss.
3. It's been a year since I've posted pics on this blog and in that time we got Lightroom for our photos and I'm really bad at it. 

But yay! Here they are! Picture overload. Gender reveal was at the very end of May. We went to the ultrasound and Caleb found out the gender and I didn't. He didn't want to be surprised in front of people. (Surprised=slightly disappointed if it's a girl?? He denies this.) I like being surprised. And I like surprising others. And I like parties. So here we go.

My co workers voted. I like this list. 

Gender reveal, fiesta style. Because gender reveals are getting slightly overdone and cheesy. But I don't really care. I'm slightly overdone and cheesy ok? And I love a good fiesta. If only I could drink a margarita. Sigh. (The dirty towel is to wipe the dog's paws. Keeping it real here.)

I apologize for everyone's facial expressions. I did not edit these photos. It's because I love you all so much just the way you are!

If you've ever been to a party at my house, there's a good chance I served tacos. I love tacos. And they are super easy to feed a crowd with.

I just make taco meat and then set out all the taco stuff. And serve Coke in glass bottles because it reminds me of Mexico.

Caleb filled up the pinata with correctly colored candy. 

It's a BOY!!! (And then Sophie ate like five pieces of candy before anyone noticed.)

My parents dressed appropriately. 

Kerry made these amazing beautiful cake! I'm obsessed with sweets so I ate most of it by myself.

Love. You should hire this girl to bake stuff for you.

Yum. For reals.

It took approximately 20 tries to get this pic. But I kind of love it.

I'm going to tell you something here: Razzles are actually gross. I didn't even know.

Thanks to our family and friends for putting up with this gender reveal madness. Thanks to my mom for helping me with party prep. And thanks to my sweet hub and Audrey for taking some pics for me!

Baby Boy, we are so excited to meet you!!

Registry madness

I'm bringin' sexy back.

Guys, I'm back. After a year long hiatus, I've decided that the blog will live on. For one major reason: I'm preggo! And it seems that everyone on Facebook and in real life is also pregnant. Weird. I totally thought I was going to be the only one. (Ha.) Basically, I've just been dying to document pregnancy and connect with other pregnant women/new moms/moms/anyone. I like group projects, ok? I like knowing that I'm not the only one. So here we go!

Some quick facts about my pregnancy so far:

1. I'm currently at 22 weeks, over half way! Yay!
2. Due date is October 18th. Praying I make it there so I can skip all the holidays at work this year. Sorry coworkers. But not really.
3. It's a BOY!
4. I've been craving sweets. Candy, doughnuts, fruit. Can't wait to see how much I've gained at my next appointment!
5. I'm excited and scared. Sometimes I cry at dumb things. I sleep a lot. My husband is very patient and kind. Poor guy.

So my goal for the next few months is to throw out a couple blog posts a week. One documenting my personal pregnancy and one asking questions and getting advice. Everyone loves to give advice to a pregnant lady! Just let it all out here. Give me all the advice you want. I may or may not take it.

That's it friends! I'm excited to blog and share and connect. Pregnancy is an amazing, wonderful, horrible adventure that I thought would probably happen to me "some day." If this blog were sexy, I'm definitely bringing it back. (Also, if anyone wants to take me to Justin Timberlake in July, I will gladly free up my schedule!)

First order of business: registries. We are going to register this weekend. I feel weird about registering, like I expect people to buy us stuff, which I totally don't. But it will be really great to have a comprehensive list of everything we need. What are your must have registry items? Any links to a really great registry? Where did you go to register and why? I want to get everything we need without getting wayyyyy too much. Any and all registry advice welcome! Feel free to comment on here or on Facebook.

(Love this registry by Cup of Jo)

Happy Wednesday!
