Blue or Pink?

Now hold your horses there.

I am not having the blue or pink discussion right now. If I were you would be able to hear my husband hyperventilating through your computer speakers.

Rather, a wild/sweet/spunky teacher I work with is expecting her first baby…and she just found out the gender this week. We are all so excited that she is on her way to becoming a mom, so I thought it would be fun to throw her a simple “gender reveal” party after school one day. It was hard for her to hold it in, but she managed to keep it secret until the big reveal.

Here are a few pics from our celebration!

Quick & Easy (and might I add tasty?) Invites


Each teacher chose a pink or blue bow to wear throughout the day to “cast their vote”…and build suspense!


Blue was the overwhelming choice…I think only 4 of us went with pink. 🙂

(P.S. – Those bows were so easy to make! Let me know if you need a tutorial!)


The teacher’s lounge was transformed throughout the day…the cards on each table were for other Moms to share their expertise!006

Pink & Blue cookies & Kool-Aid!


I literally slaved all night making those cookies. Or spent $6 at Wal-Mart for them. Believe what you want.


Don’t parties just make life more fun?


I am so glad she agreed to let me celebrate her and her baby in a fun (and new!) way. I’m pretty sure I can speak for all the teachers when I say that as much as we are looking forward to meeting her little bundle, we are definitely looking forward to hearing all of her entertaining motherhood stories equally as much! 🙂

Yay for new babies!


P.S. – Pink bows won!

Oh Boy!

I’m a little past due for a very important introduction. My husband’s family (myself included!) has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a certain little man, and we’re all so happy that he’s here…chubby cheeks and all!

Meet the most sweet and darling little nephew I’ve got…Mr. Nolan Micheal!

Of course I had to wear my Texas Rangers shirt to go meet him…with a name like Nolan he’s got all the potential he needs to be great!

Ah, he’s just so darn snuggly! (His sister is pretty stinkin’ adorable too…and so polite, that one!)

Is that not the cutest picture ever?!

I share a pretty special connection with these two, besides just being their aunt. Each of our birthdays is on the 24th…A-bugs of October, mine of January, and now Monkey-Man’s of May. I’d say we were all meant to be family.

Mom and everyone are doing well…I think they are settling into a routine and he is just a little doll. As for me? I’m thinking of a new career path…one where I just sit and rock tiny little babies all day. Now that sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

As for today, I’m helping my own little brother set up his new digs. He’s starting a new job in a couple of weeks and he’s just more and more grown-up everyday. You’ve come a long way baby!
