Gender Reveal Party

My sweet best friends threw me a special party to celebrate and announce the gender of baby Shields! It was I was giddy excited about it all week and could not wait to hang out with all my favorite girls, plus get to tell them all whether we were having a boy or girl!

Shannon and Ashley went ALL OUT with the decorations and little details. I teared up when I first walked in and saw everything. They made me feel so special and loved - it was such a sweet night - one I'll remember for a long time. 

Check out these adorable decorations! There were little lips for girl and mustaches for boy :) The group was evenly split down the middle boy vs girl. She even had little cards for people to fill out with wishes for baby Shields. They were so thoughtful and sweet!

We ate dinner pretty quickly and I tried not to say much because I did NOT want to give it away by accident :) After dinner, Ashley cut the cake (she made it so I had told her the gender ahead of time). Everyone turned around so they wouldn't see until it was time...

And then VOILA! It's a girl!!!! Best. reactions. ever.

We sat around and talked for a long time - discussing only the most important things (including the Bachelor, of course). It was such a sweet time with friends and I loved having everyone together. One of my best friends even drove in from Charlotte just for the party!

Team Boy vs. Team Girl

Thank you everyone for making it such a special experience! I love you all so much!
