{gender reveal party}

It was so much fun! We knew we wanted to do something similar this time around for baby #2
But this time it was a lot more simple. Which we were totally fine with! 
It's funny how different it is the second time around, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying its not as exciting as the first, its just.. different! 
Last time there were soooooo many people in our little house, it was crazy! fun, but crazy! we sent out a special invitation and everything. We put so much work into setting up the party, making sure every little thing was perfect. It was kind of stressful!
This time, we were a lot more relaxed. I sent out a text to our close friends & family inviting them to find out the gender. About 20+ people showed up. We did a simple set up of iced tea, Lemonade, water, & snacks. I made a couple of props & hung some banners i made a while back, & boom! It looked great. Simple & sweet. We really enjoyed ourselves. My sweet friend Jenny took some pics of our intimate event, & i thought i would share them!
{I made these muctache & lips props. I bought felt, traced & cut out the shapes i wanted, & glued them to sticks! Super simple & super cute. Everyone picked one, depending on what they thought baby johnston was}

We had a blast finding out that baby #2 is a BOY!! woohoo!! We knew it all along! 
G is going to be a big sister :) She is really excited about it too! 
She is finally beginning to grasp what is going on. 
I'll ask her "Where is baby brother?" & she grabs my tummy & says "my baby bruvver {aka brother}, he sleeping"  & gives my belly a big kiss. It just melts my heart! she is going to be the best big sister ever.
Well, i promised in my last post that i would do another post sharing more details, so, i hope you enjoyed reading ;) Oh! & in my last post there is a video, if you want to watch the reveal. It was a lot of fun! 
Happy Tuesday Everyone!

{happy 4th}


Happy 4th of July! From all 4 of us ;) 
We had a blast this year. We spent it with our neighbors, & good friends Kelly & Tyler.
They have a daughter the same age as G & they are best friends! 
It makes it extra fun to get together with them
We went swimming, jumped on the trampoline, Grilled, ate way too much food & set off fireworks. 
It was so much Fun!
