I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! After driving 6 long hours and a 45 minute boat ride, we spent a relaxing 4 day weekend back home and it was wonderful. 

Dad came through with fresh seafood. Gah, I'm drooling just looking at this picture.

Mom made an amazing Easter dinner and made this coconut cake for dessert.

Easter morning Mom and Dad surprised us with a basket full of goodies for Baby E. It was so exciting and I didn't expect that.

And they still gave me a few goodies too :) Here's one of them:

Oh yes, a Bunny Bubble from Lush. I had the best Easter bath!

And even though I was sad about leaving, this lovely package was waiting at my door and made coming home better!

Gender Reveal Party

We find out the baby's gender on May 5th and we are so excited. We can officially start planning the nursery and creating registries! I love a good get together, so of course we are planning a gender reveal party. We go to the doctor early Monday morning and they will put the boy or girl ultrasound in an envelope. We will then drop off that envelope to our cake maker. So it will be a complete surprise to Joe and I too. 

Here are my ideas...

I've ordered pink and blue pacifier necklaces for our guests to wear, lots of pink and blue balloons, fun paper straws with bows and mustaches, snacks, and the cake! I can't wait to cut into that cake and see blue or pink!

Don't worry I do have a budget in place -- my goal is to not go over $50.
