Feeling Doubly Blessed! We're expecting TWINS!

{Shades of Green + White}

Hi there, friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today I thought it would be fun to kick off the week with some pretty eye candy! Green and white stripes really are fun and I don't know what it is, but I'm seriously smitten with striped straws here lately. Have you noticed? There is just something so fun about stripes. Okay, so before I go any further, I have a little announcement to make! Some of you might have heard the news last week as I announced it on Twitter... but in case you haven't heard, I wanted to let you know that I'm pregnant! And that's not all! We're expecting twinnsssssss! {continued...}

Details We Love
Striped Straws + Lovely Gown!
Yep, you read that correctly... TWINS! I seriously cannot tell you how suprised we were to learn that I was carrying two sweet babies! Needless to say, we feel doubly blessed! I'll be considered full term by middle of July. For those of you who don't know, we have a 17 month old little boy so by the time the twins arrive, we will officially have three children under 2! Needless to say, I'm going to be one busy mommy! Thanks to everyone for the sweet well wishes! We're blown away by the love and excitement that so many of you seem to have for us. We're so looking forward to being a family of five!
