Gender Reveal

We found out on Valentines Day morning what sweet little Babyboo's gender was. I knew I wanted to have a gender reveal party, but I also knew that I couldn't keep the gender a secret for longer than a day ( if I could even manage that). So I decided to have a gender reveal dessert party that night so that people could come join us for our big announcement and some sweets after their romantic dinner. As soon as we got out of our appointment I called one of our local bakeries and gave them instructions for my gender cake. Since it was such short notice they could only color the icing in the middle of the cake which was fiiiiiiine by me!

I suffered through the rest of my work day and then raced home to get everything ready for the big reveal.
 * Side note- Dusty and I have a Valentines tradition of pizza and a movie on February 14, then we go out for a nice dinner a few days later. It's our little tradition and I love it! :) It was especially nice this year since I needed to get ready for our dessert party.
Ok, back to the reveal. Since we were having a dessert party I decided the theme would be, "Our Sweet Baby" clever huh?!? So with the help of my Mother I threw together a somewhat last minute gender reveal. I think it turned out pretty cute considering the time crunch, but I will let you decide! :)
Here are a few pictures of Our Sweet Baby Gender Reveal.
Our precious cake. Blue Cake Company did such a great job! It was exactly what I wanted and was so delicious!

Our Sweet Baby sign that I put on the middle of the table.
A view of the dessert table. We had chocolate covered strawberries, symphony brownies, mini cheesecakes, pecan bars, pound cake, champagne, and of course gender cake. YUM!

I made these signs out of some scrapbook paper and old frames I had lying around. I thought it would be fun to take a picture of the guests with their guess. I will probably put them in Babyboo's scrapbook. This is our friends Kevin & Glynn with their guesses. Aren't they cute?!?
                     Some more cute friends! Chance, Heather, and their precious little boy Hyatt.
      Precious little Hyatt guessed that Babyboo was a girl. He wanted a Valentine. :)

Just Dance!

Babyboo has been so active this past week and a half and I LOVE it!!! It is amazing to feel my sweet baby moving around inside me! Most of the time his/her movements are very light and feel almost like a little flutter in my tummy. So I was extremely caught off guard on Saturday night, when my child decided to break it down in my belly.
We were out with Dusty's work having a little fun night of pizza and bowling. There was a wait at the bowling alley so we decided to go into their (smoke free) bar and watch karaoke until our lane was ready. The absolute second I stepped inside Babyboo started going CrAzY!!! I have never felt him/her move like that before. Little bit was just loving the music and jamming out! It was the funniest thing! I could not stop laughing and Babyboo could not stop dancing. We only stayed in there for a few minutes because there was no where to sit, but the whole time we were there, MY CHILD WAS DANCING!!! :)

* 8 more days until we find out if Babyboo is a Baby girl or Baby boy. I can't wait!!!
