It’s a…

pink cupcake

Holy beans!!

Goodness gracious!!

Other exclamations of excitement!!!

Johnny and I are overjoyed to announce to all

that we are expecting a baby girl!!!


We had a few of our closest friends over to Melinda and Kyle’s house (thanks again for hosting, guys) to share in theΒ  reveal. We even had my Mom, her boyfriend Tony, and my little brother on videochat on my phone for the big moment!! It was absolutely perfect!!

Here are some photos from the day! I hope you all enjoy.

glorious cupcakesWe got our deliciously perfectly amazing red velvet cupcakes with PINK cream cheese filling and super cute decorations from Wendi of Sweet Treats Cake Boutique of Mechanicsburg. Seriously, if you’re in Central PA see her for all of your cupcake/cake/cookie needs. She’s the best! She even gave us a cute lil’ pink rubber ducky sealed in a gift bag for us to open.


Such gorgeous, delicious cupcakes!

punch! We served pink or blue punch to all! The pink was just sprite and cranberry juice (my beverage of choice). The blue was lemonade with a packet of unsweetened blue raspberry lemonade kool aide. Both were tasty!

Nicole and INicole was one of the few lemonade drinkers. πŸ™‚ Someone had to support Team Blue!

the quizBefore we dug into the cupcakes, I prepared a little quiz for everyone to take about pregnancy old wives tales! Only my friend Susan got 100% and bragging rights. According to these old wives tales…I was just as likely to be having a boy as I was a girl! It was time to find out for reals…

the boys playingI’m so very thankful to have each and every one of these people in my life and I’m so happy that I was able to share this experience with them. Even though gifts were not required, our friends Ashley and Jared were super sweet and gave us the first book for Miss Emma Grace’s library.
