Seriously lusting over Calypso’s collection of scarves.

Aren’t those just the most serene and calming scarves ever?

I really want to give you all a great big giant hug for all of the wonderful messages regarding our pregnancy.  Tuesday was such a blissful day with my phone ding-ding-dinging with new blog comments.  Ya’ll are seriously the best readers and friends in the world!

And while I’m on the pregnancy topic (don’t worry this isn’t becoming a pregnancy blog), yesterday we went in for our 16 week appt.  My amazing doctor (Dr. Lara Wilson at Lowcountry OBGYN) snuck us in for an early ultrasound so we could see the gender of the baby.  Wooohoooo.  The contents of this envelope will tell us if we’re having a boy or a girl!

{I took this picture in the elevator right after the appt. Josh had gone ahead back to work in case you’re wondering…)

Can you believe the willpower I have?  I’m surprised Josh trusted me with that.  So, if we can refrain from just tearing into the envelope (which is entirely possible) we’d like to find out the gender in a fun way.  We’re considering doing a gender reveal cake where a bakery makes the outside of the cake neutral and the inside is either strawberry or blueberry cake and then just let Lilly tear into it.  Could be fun to cut into, and eat…  Have any other ideas?

On a funny and last note, about an hour after the appt I texted Josh and just wrote “It’s a boy!” to see what he’d say.  He actually believed that I had not only opened it without him but had deemed it appropriate to just text him the news… He was so mad that I’m not even going to share his response with you.  I got a lot of laughs out of that.

For the past few months I’ve been working on a very important project…
The project will probably turn out a little something like this…
Yep, our wild family of three is growing!!
I’m currently 16 weeks pregnant.  Our due date is January 1st, 2012.  And I couldn’t be happier.

Photography by Jylare Photography.  Ya’ll know her – she’s been a sponsor here on my blog!  She came to the Grand Del Mar in San Diego on Friday to take a family photo (of all 28 of us) and was sweet enough to snap these for me too!  I can definitely tell you now that Jylare rocks!

My friend Haskell (an editor at Garden & Gun) recently told me about this great contest going on and I had to share with you all.  Garden & Gun magazine is in the midst of the 2nd year of their annual contest Made in the South.  Do you make a fashion, home, food, or sporting product here in the South?  Now’s your chance to take it to the next level. Last year’s Style winner, Gabrielle of Gabrielle Jewelry, casts the most gorgeous lace jewels by integrating traditional clothing adornments into modern pieces of jewelry.  In other words, she preserves the original design by replacing it with metal.

And I know that some of you have wild talents too.  The winners (along with several honorable mentions) of each category will be published in Garden & Gun’s December/January 2012 issue.  Each winner will also receive a $500 cash prize along with a chance to be a part of the Made in the South Awards online boutique at Taigan.  So go enter!  It’s a really simple entry process and you have until August 1st to do it.
Good luck!
