So last Saturday, we had a sex party - but I assure you, it's not what you think. We wanted to come up with a unique way to find out the sex of our baby. Instead of having the doctor just tell us casually in a sterile hospital room, we thought we would share the reveal in a creative way with family and friends in our home.
THE PLAN: After our 20 week ultra sound appointment, we had our doctor write on a piece of paper if we were having a BOY or GIRL (eeeek). She then safely sealed the document into an envelope and I delivered it to Susie Cakes (my favorite bakery in LA). Their instructions were to make two dozen cupcakes, all with white frosting on the outside and white frosting on the inside, except for one magical cupcake that would be filled with either pink or blue.
THE DETAILS: The morning of the party, I went to the bakery and picked up the goods. The Susie Cakes ladies were SO over the top adorable, they made me even more excited than I already was. KL and I decided it would be fun, once all of our guests arrived, to pass out the cupcakes and have everyone bite into them at the same time.
THE REVEAL: As cupcakes were being chomped, and guests started shouting out, 'I got white', 'white', I have white too' - our friend Andrew had a suspicious look in his eyes. He said, 'I got it, I think.' He walked through the crowd and presented us with our magic cupcake filled with PINK frosting!
WE'RE HAVING A GIRL!
Saturday's party marked the first real opportunity for KL and I to celebrate my pregnancy. We cooked and prepped all day to make the gathering special not only for us, but for our guests. We knew that the moment was going to be memorable, but to be honest, I don't think either of us prepared for just how nice it was. It was overwhelming to be surrounded by our besties, and officially share with them the start of this exciting journey.
Ps. I am thinking about blowing this picture up and putting it in our little girl's nursey (once we get around to that project - sigh). Could be cute, right?
