We had an absolute blast at our gender reveal party yesterday and are so thankful to all of those who made it out to be there with us on such a special day! Here are all of the fun details...
Pink or Blue? Which team are you? Having everyone mark their guesses on the chalkboard was really fun, I'm so glad we added that little interactive element to our gender reveal party! Also the pumpkin fluff dip was deliciously perfect and perfectly fitting being the first day of Fall and all ;)
Sweet sunflowers and card from a dear friend who couldn't make it to the party but wanted to drop by beforehand... Thanks Robin!
Clavel marking her prediction on the board and as usual (whether it is dealing with an order at the bakery or dealing with something in my personal life) she was right, lol!
...SURPRISE... It's a...
Love this photo that my awesome friend Cosette took of Prescott and I explaining how we found out and thanking everyone for being there on such a special day in our life. *don't fret, we are toasting with sparkling grape juice ;)

This was sooo yummy and easy to make too... Win win! It really was the perfect game day appetizer. I found the recipe off Pinterest and made a couple of alterations, here is the recipe -
8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese (room temp)
3/4 cup no stir natural peanut butter or whatever creamy peanut butter you like ( just not oily or crunchy)
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Cream all ingredients above in a stand mixer with paddle attachment until thick and creamy.
- Pour doughy batter into a long sheet of Saran Wrap and pull all edges up to form a wrapped ball and place in the freezer for an hour and a half
- In the meantime place dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips on a flat plate
- Once ball is firm enough roll it in the chips and then place back in the freezer for a couple hours until totally firm. You can refrigerate it then until ready to serve with pretzels, apples and/or graham crackers.

Prescott and I having a celebratory dinner for making it to the second trimester, feeling better and having a healthy baby that is now 15 weeks old :) We are very thankful for all of these things and don't take any of them for granted!
Me at 15 weeks... Not sure when this baby bump is going to turn into an actual bump?!?! For now I will continue to enjoy wearing my normal clothes and will be excited to buy my first maternity outfits once the time comes.
