It's a BOY!!!

Sorry for not posting yesterday, but I was recovering Sunday after a long weekend!

Saturday we spent most of the day hosting a garage sale. Last weekend, we spent all day Sunday cleaning out our basement and gathered items to sell. We got new shelves and plastic bins to organize everything. It was so nice to get rid of all the cardboard boxes!

We sold a lot of stuff, but there is still a lot we need to either sell or donate. That is the next to-do this week. 

After the garage sale, we had both sets of parents and Bill's brother and fiance over for dinner. My plan was to have dinner and cut a gender reveal cake (cake is pink or blue inside) for dessert!

Our gender appointment was on Friday and we received an envelope from our doctor which was sealed so we could not peek!

I brought the envelope over to my friend's house who was planning on making the cake for us. It was so hard to wait over 24 hours knowing that the sex of our child was determined and someone knew what it was other than me! But, it was completely worth the wait and seeing everyone's reaction when we cut into the cake.

See the short video clip of us cutting into the cake here.

On Sunday, Bill and I grabbed some brunch down in the Short North and stopped by a store called Homage that sells vintage style t shirts and tanks. I just had to buy little baby boy's first Ohio themed outfit!

Don't worry... Bill bought the matching t shirt!
