Oh my gosh, you guys. The reveal day is finally here!!! I have been waiting to share (and find out myself) for so long! Lemme tell you, holding onto that envelope for 2 weeks while Zack was out of town was not easy! Haha. But our props finally arrived, Zack came home, and Saturday was go time. We headed to Prospect Park with Tyler Lyons on Saturday evening around sunset to capture our reveal and our reactions along with the news. It was a beautiful evening, and we are so happy for our little Baby Notes on the way!

Your guesses on Facebook and Instagram massively skewed toward girl. I honestly went back and forth each trimester thinking something different. Of course, I found this soccer ball reveal prop on Etsy, and I just HAD to use it being a soccer player and now that my boys love the sport as well. My neighbor was the first one to find out since she purchased the soccer ball for me to use for this shoot. Okay…keep scrolling to find out if you guessed it right!!!

It’s a BOY!!!! Another Brother! #boysonlyclub

Oh my gosh. You should have seen poor little Nico’s face. He was CERTAIN it was going to be pink, and he was in SUCH a state of shock. I felt a little bad that we hyped up this reveal a little too much, because apparently he really got into it! He was hoping for a sister…That said, one day later, and he was back to being super excited again about his little baby on the way!

So I had an extra ball ordered, because I wasn’t sure how easy they were going to be to break open, and I was a little nervous myself or one of the kids would break it before we actually got to take our photos! LOL. I will say that this thing was STURDY as a rock. I had to kick is really hard (and my foot actually hurt haha), so I don’t think buying two was necessary. But that said, we had an extra one, so we let Nico throw it down to take a few more photos once we knew we were having a little BOY! It took him about 4 throws before he could get it to break, but he finally got it!

The official sonogram pic that the sono tech had put in an envelope for me. Yup. No doubt about that anatomy haha.

Thank you Tyler Lyons for capturing this special family moment for us! It was so much fun!

Tyler also snagged a video for us from his phone, and I edited a little something together as well if you want to watch the action.

Thank you all for your patience! I know I was driving some of you crazy making you all wait this long to find out haha. One person even said they thought we were having twins because of all the hype hahaha. NO. I guess I have always just loved a big production. 😉

To see the reveals we did in the past for Nico and Luca you can check them out here (Nico’s) and here (Luca’s).

Thanks for all the love and I feel so incredibly blessed right now! ❤ ❤ ❤

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Today I am honored to share my story as part of the Thirteen Fit Apparel 13 Journeys campaign!!

My story is about an athlete. It’s about motherhood. It’s about challenges. It’s about entrepreneurship. It’s about hard work. It’s about priorities. It’s about putting your mind to something and accomplishing it.

I hope that something within my journey can connect or resonate with you today. We are all on our own journey toward becoming our #ultimateself, and I continue to work on mine every single day.

Thank you to Paige Festa for including me on this project, to the 12 other inspiring individuals who are also sharing their journeys in these next few weeks, and to Jocelyn Bold Photography for capturing the photos from this shoot.

Full story can found over at Thirteen Fit Apparel! Hope you can check it out!

Happy Monday!

XO,

Red Carpet Picks 2018

JenniferLawrence

Okay! Here we have it. My top picks for the Red Carpet 2018! Sorry for the delay. It’s been a crazy week around here. They aren’t in order, but I just had to start with this shimmering goddess, Jennifer Lawrence, in Dior. Seriously, does she look like a star or what? As you will see below, many sparkling metallics made the list this year!

 

LupitaNyongo

The Black Panther star, Lupita Nyong’o, slaying it in this golden Versace gown.

 

90th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Gal Gadot pulling off Hollywood glam in this gorgeous flapper-style dress by Givenchy.

 

AllisonWilliams

Allison Williams, of the movie “Get Out” (have you seen this one yet, you guys? If not, it’s a must!) wearing Armani Privè Couture and looking beautiful.

 

MargotRobbie

Best Actress nominee, Margot Robbie, wearing an incredible Chanel gown that took over 600 hours to make! That 3d crystal garland? Winning!

 

NicoleKidman

Nicole Kidman always looks amazing on the red carpet and this year’s royal blue Armani Privè gown and it’s giant bow did not disappoint!

 

90th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

My girl and Birthday Twin, Sandra Bullock, looking shimmery and chic in Louis Vuitton.

 

SaoirseRonan

Pretty in pink, Saoirse Ronan of “Lady Bird” looking super sweet in Calvin Klein on the red carpet.

 

Armie Hammer

Let’s not forget the dudes! Armie Hammer looking fly in Giorgio Armani despite being in bed with the stomach flu the night before. I never would have guessed!

 

Common.jpg

Common looking handsome on the red carpet in an Armani suit with Tiffany & Co. watch and pin.

 

Rita Moreno

While these next two might not be my personal favorite looks, you cannot deny these two made some head’s turn. Rita Moreno rocked the same black and gold dress that she wore on the red carpet in 1962 where she won an Oscar for “West Side Story.”

 

StVincent

No pants? No problem. St. Vincent making a statement in Saint Laurent. Does she remind anyone else of Lady Gaga or is it just me?

 

Okay, that’s a wrap, you guys. Now I want to hear YOUR favorites! Post them below!

Hope you’re having a great week!
