What’s Mommy Growing? Gender Reveal

MOM LIFESTYLE
What is the gender? Unique gender reveal with plants
4

Two days ago my midwife appointment was scheduled, my husband had just worked all night long the night before and was at home sleeping so I headed out of the house early and decided to go to Micheals Craft Store. I didn’t have any idea of how I was going to share the gender of our babe, I wanted to do something with confetti but there were two thoughts that were on my mind, ugh the cleanup and what if we missed the perfect shot. As I wandered the aisles of the store, I came across plain planters. I stared at them for a minute with Sophie in my hand tugging to get moving, and thought.. “I am growing something, boy or a girl… I am growing a baby sibling for my kiddos, how neat would it be if they could have something that somewhat symbolizes a baby growing.”

I picked up two of the planters and then then hit the paint aisle. “They can paint the planters in the colour of the baby to reveal it!” I thought to myself. So (keeping in mind this is before my appointment) without thinking and with a very impatient Sophie now in my arms because she has been trying to dart away, I grab a bottle of pale pink and purple paint, hit the cash register and head to my appointment. When I park the car and am getting Sophie out of the car I realize, “Sh*t, I don’t even know the gender yet, why the heck would I get pink and purple paint?” I shake it off and tell myself that I will go back and exchange for blue if need be.

Well, the appointment came and went, I decided that I didn’t want to be told but would rather open it up in an envelope, still undecided if I was going to wait for my husband or not to open at the same time. We get back to the car and well, let’s just say that envelope didn’t stay sealed for longer then a minute. Inside I read “Congrats! It’s most likely a… —>” ahh the anticipation, flip over and… “A GIRL!!”

EEKKK!!! Apparently I knew all along (hense the pink and purple paint) crazy how our bodies/minds work. I decided to bake my husband cookies, and to keep that short let’s just say it might not be the best way to share with your husband if you aren’t a baker. Mainly because I was impatient and putting icing on hot cookies never turns out looking well.

Make Your Own Gender Reveal Planters

Supplies:

  • Planter
  • Patio Paint (Outdoor/Waterproof)
  • Paintbrush
  • Favorite Plant (I loved that these ones had a rim of pink for our girl reveal)
  • Soil
  • Chalkboard Planter Stick

Directions:

I brought everything home, cleaned the pot and then laid out some newspaper for painting. I wanted the kids to do their own painting (however Ezra wasn’t into the colour choices) and painted the first coat all pink for Sophie. Holding the pot I let her use the paint brush to add splashes of purple. Let Dry.

Put in soil and Plant your plant of choice. Add your label to reveal the gender and Voila! Easy as that!

I can not even get over their faces here, Ezra didn’t want to hold the pink pot and his face pretty much sums up how he feels about being in a house with only two boys and three girls.

So did you guess right?

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
  • It’s Friday night and I’m sharing photos on my stories of how @juliechristinephotography captured my butt in these pants. Could be worse I guess 🤣🤣 PS the jeans are the curvy mom jeans from @americaneagle // @shopsevenoaks and I really do love them, except for when my butt gets hungry for them. The end.
