In addition to being really awesome at making babies, Ellen is also awesome at making cakes. So much so that she has a side biz ExcELLENent Cakes (you can see some do her awesome work here). Who better to make our cake for our gender reveal party than Ellen? At 10 weeks, Ellen took a blood test that, among other things, revealed Baby O's gender. Ellen is also awesome at keeping secrets as she found out this info about a week and a half before she shared it with anyone else (aside from her husband Chris). We were so excited to find out together at the Gender Reveal. My parents flew in from Florida, Jason's sister came in from New Jersey, and Jason's mom and my sister, brother-in-law and nieces and nephew "watched the game from home " via FaceTime.
In sticking with the womb divided motif we went with a football Pink vs Blue/Gator vs Seminole theme. Here is our ticket to the Gender Reveal Showdown.
I had a lot of fun decorating for the party. Jason thought I went a bit overboard but we waited a long time for this baby so I figured I was entitled to go all out!
We also served Pink champagne and blue raspberry martinis (they looked a lot better than they tasted)
Team Pink and Team Blue were split pretty evenly too.

And here is the adorable cake.
So without further ado...watch the videos to find out the gender and our reaction!
