Rockstar or Diva?

Gender Party 21 Rockstar or Diva?!


MIMM is extra SPECIAL today!

thehealthydiva Rockstar or Diva?!

On Thursday night we had our Gender Reveal Party at our house with close family and it was one of the most special nights in my life. I am still smiling thinking about Thursday night, how excited I was when everyone started arriving and just having our loved ones with us for this special moment we had ahead that night.

I didn’t decorate too much, but wanted to add a little gender reveal touch!

We ordered pizza since it was something everyone liked and it was heart shaped too!

( I was so proud of my mom, her and I had salads! She is doing so well with her new lifestyle, just had to shout that! )

When everyone got there, we all chatted and ate first before getting to dessert and the BIG moment!

Mom and sisters!

My boys and I being silly…..what will baby g be?!

We took this pic before finding out, Anthony held a blue and pink bear that my BFF Cassie brought us!

Soon we would know by cracking this chocolate cupcake open!

Sarris Candies, a local amazing chocolate place made this gender bash cake for me! I knew I wanted to do something different to find out the gender and when I saw they had chocolate bash cakes, I asked them if they could do a gender reveal style one for me.

Of course they were happy to and LOVED the idea! I am happy that they will now be promoting this, yay!

The hollow chocolate cupcake contained white chocolate covered pretzels inside either decorated with blue or pink stripes!

The details were so cute and so special! I am so happy I thought of this idea and it was a special memory we will never forget!

The big moment was ready to happen! Everyone gathered around and we had Mike’s mom on face time on the iphone so she could be part of it as well, so glad she could!

Mike and I were so excited and ready to crack that baby open!

Words can’t even describe this moment, it was just so special and so amazing to find out if there was a he or she in my belly! Having our loved ones all around made it even more special, a night we will never forget! We are still on cloud 9 over here!

Mike and I knew the name we were picking right away, it is PERFECT for our little rockstar and we even think he looks like what we named him already when we look at the ultrasound pics!

IMG 62911 Rockstar or Diva?!


We can’t wait to meet this little rockstar soon! We are still going to refer to him as Baby G for now until he is born, we will reveal name then!

There has been lots of celebrating over here, MIke surprised me on Friday with a special delivery that came to the door.

He sent me this bear and flowers, how sweet is my husband?! I am blessed and so is Baby G to have such an awesome daddy!

Shopping has already began over here too, in fact Thursday night Mike and I shopped online, we were way too excited! We just had to buy a couple things! Will share when the outfits come in!

I also have been loving the skulls for Baby G, hehe! He is a rockstar after all  icon wink Rockstar or Diva?!

34 Liz (formerly VeggieGirl) February 11, 2013 at 9:25 am

While I originally said it’d be awesome for you to have a baby Diva, it’s actually WAY BETTER that you’re having a baby Rockstar. You’re the #1 Diva and no one can take that from you – you’re in a house full of wonderful men and I just know that Anthony will be a fabulous older brother. Many, many congratulations to you and your family, dear Katie!!!! xoxo

125 Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut February 11, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Congrats girl! That looked so fun!

I had a friend do a gender reveal party and she had me make her cake pops!

I think she kind of saw the color on the inside, but it was still fun for everyone to bite into their cake pop at the same time and see the gender!

Congrats on the little rockstar! <3


126 Miss Polkadot February 11, 2013 at 2:48 pm

Katie!!! I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to write, but your blog was honestly the FIRST thing I did/read when I woke up this morning! I was SO excited! You wrote such a beautiful recap of your weekend – thanks for sharing with all your Baby G rockstar fans!

Anthony’s and Mike’s reactions are PRICELESS! Mike is going to be a wonderful dad, and Anthony is similarly going to be a wonderful brother. Having a sister that is 4 years younger than me, I secretly wanted your baby to be a boy so Anthony could have a brother! ;)

Cheers to YOU and YOUR beautiful family :) xo
