Our Big Reveal!

Well Hello there Monday.  Are you as excited for this Monday as I am?!  I got very excited last night to be able to share our news with you today.  The party was a big success.  We could feel the excitement from our friends and family.  We felt so lucky to have so many people there for us and this little baby!

The amazing Jax came over for the afternoon to snap a few photos.  We cannot wait to see how they turned out!!  In the meantime, here are a couple I managed to take before everybody came over.

 You see that “cute as a button” burlap banner?  Well, run over to Allison's etsy shop, Simply Burlap!  I received so many compliments on this adorable little banner.  When I was ordering, I knew I wanted to keep it pretty gender neutral so that way I could use it in the nursery no matter if we were having a boy or girl.  I love it!  Thank you Allison!

 As you can see, burlap, gold accents, and buttons were the theme!

I hung some of our sonogram pictures above the fireplace.  Below the mantle is a little Old Wives’ Predictions sign I made out of an old frame, clothes pins, and jute.  I love how this turned out!  I cannot wait to use it in the nursery and add pictures or something to it!


Ok, ok.  I know you are all waiting very patiently.  So, let’s get to it!  It was pretty 50/50 on your guesses, but the boy guesses were a little more….BUT, we are having…
