oh man ... where do I begin? I can't believe that the holidays and 2012 have come and gone. We had a wonderful Christmas and New years celebrating with friends and family. I truly enjoyed my long holiday break and mostly blame my blogging hiatus on many days of doing nothing, but relaxing and soaking up the time off. Woking on a computer didn't even cross my mind, so I took advantage and had some "me" time. So, I apologize for the long absence, but hopefully it will do my creative mind some good. I felt like I was getting in a design/creativity rut ...
Since I quietly announced on Instagram and hinted on the blog about our future nursery, that I am expecting, my mind has been racing all things baby! I knew from the get go that I wanted to do a fun "gender reveal" party with close friends. I can't wait 9 months not knowing, but waiting a few days to find out with friends and family really excites me! And, guess what!? That time is finally here! We are hosting a small get together this week and will be cutting a cake (dyed either pink or blue on inside) to reveal to ALL (yes, we won't know until we cut the cake) the gender of Baby Owens! We are both so excited and can't wait to find out! I have a lot of fun design details prepared for the party so I can't wait to show you pictures from the night.
Brandon and I decided to try out the IntelliGender test at 14 weeks to see what it predicted. I've had a few friends that this has been accurate for, and a few that it has been completely wrong. I mean, it is a 50/50 chance!? So ... here is what it said for Baby Owens:
It without a doubt quickly turned to dark green, meaning BOY! Boy or girl, Brandon and I will be completely happy and ready to have Baby Owens in our lives. I'll keep you updated on the gender and I hope to post more inspiring and creative posts starting this week! Hope you all have had a wonderful start to your new year!
