The hubby and I had decided way before we were pregnant that we would have to find out the sex of the baby. So now we are counting down the time until we go to our 20 week ultrasound appointment...3 weeks and 3 days... I wasn't kidding, we are literally counting.
I wanted to have a fun gender reveal party since I love any excuse to throw a party, but that was immediately veto'd by the father-to-be (since when does he have a say?). Instead, we came to an agreement to have an intimate dinner party at our favorite local restaurant and cut a reveal cake at the end of dinner. This is not stopping me from purchasing a few small trinkets to make the dinner more personal and fun.
I found these pins on Etsy
(there are actually a bunch of different pins and other great gender reveal ideas on Etsy if you are in the market for that sort of thing). I will ask our guests to place their vote for girl or boy and wear their pin for the reveal.
I have also already planned my outfit for the night-shocking I know. The hubby and I will wear neutral colors so as not to sway the voters. I bought this white dress from Forever21
, at $14.50 it was a great deal!
The dinner is actually a month away from tomorrow, so I have a little more time to purchase a million more things. I can't help myself, I'm so excited!
