{My BIG UBER-Exciting NEWS}: It's Gender Reveal Time

Eeeeek! The day has come to make my, uber-exciting BIG announcement! As some of you might recall - my hubby and I are expecting twins! This weekend we had a small family get together which included a sweet little gender reveal of sorts! My mom baked two cakes - each with the appropriate cake color inside. Blue cake would signify a boy and pink would signify a girl. I've been sitting on this secret for quite some time so it was super exciting for me to finally be able to share this with my family and now with all of my sweet readers! A lot of you posted your prediction on my Facebook wall here. And surprisingly so many of you guessed it right!

We're so happy to announce that we're expecting twin girls! With the addition of two girls, we will shortly be a family of 5! It's so hard to believe since when I started this blog I was simply engaged. So much has happened in 3 years! A lot of you mentioned how much fun it would be for me to have two girls...what with all the wedding plans there would be one day to help with! Yep, the idea of that really makes me excited! So there you have it! Did you make the right guess? As you might imagine we're absolutely overjoyed. Today I'll be busy picking out the perfect shade of pink for their nursery! Thanks to everyone for your continued love and support! I hope you all have a great week.
