Bump Style with PinkBlush Maternity + $75.00 GIVEAWAY

When I was dreaming up what to wear to a family member's engagement party on a dinner boat, PinkBlush was the first place I went looking because they have so many options for beautiful maternity dresses that can be styled for any occasion. The material of this maxi dress was amazing and was breathable too, which was a huge plus since the temperature when we first got on the boat was in the upper 80's. I was able to chase around my toddler without sweating through my dress and looking like a literal hot mess. Win, win.
PinkBlush has many maternity dresses to choose from, but they also have non-maternity clothing as well. I chose this dress because I can wear it throughout all stages of my pregnancy, while nursing and beyond. It is a great transitional dress for Mamas that you can wear and feel both pretty and comfortable in! 

PinkBlush has amazing prints and I love their bright and bold colors. I also love online shopping because who wants to cart a toddler around to try on their maternity clothes? Not this Mama. PinkBlush has many options for any of you ladies out there and the shipping was fast and prompt.
I will most definitely be shopping at PinkBlush again and want you to be able to shop there too. So PinkBlush has generously offered a 75 dollar credit to one of YOU!

You can enter the giveaway below. I will be verifying all entries. Winner will be chosen one week from today!

 Please note that if you have won a gift card to PinkBlush within the last 3 months, you are not eligible to enter to win again.

Ice Cream Sundae Gender Reveal Party

Ice Cream Gender Reveal
To reveal Baby #2's gender we had our families over for an Ice Cream Sundae party.
Here's a look at a few party details...
I used a piece of black butcher paper as a table runner and wrote on it using chalkboard markers and then had all the ice cream toppings out on the table. For the hot toppings, I used this Pinterest trick to melt the chocolate and caramel and keep them warm in my crock pot. It worked wonderfully!
We had all our family members make their Sundaes and top them with the color sprinkles that matched the gender they thought Baby #2 was going to be. Let's just say everyone at the party (minus my brother) topped their Sundaes with PINK sprinkles!
After everyone had gotten their ice cream, Drew, Aiden and I got ours and then it was time for the reveal. We got out a sprinkle container that I had already put the correct color of sprinkles in. Everyone watched as we dumped out BLUE sprinkles on top of our Sundaes. Surprise! Aiden is getting a BROTHER in January.
It was such a sweet day (in every sense of the word) and we can't wait for Aiden to be a brother!
