Baby Upchurch is a. . .

 Baby Boy!
Christopher & I are so, so excited to announce that our little one coming in September is going to be a baby boy! (The verdict is still out on Forrest, as to how he feels 😉)
 We had our gender reveal at "The Barn" which is a wedding and event venue that belongs to my aunt and uncle. They are so, so good to us and let us have a lot of our family gatherings there and we're blessed because it's such a beautiful location!

 We kept the decor really minimal, as well as the guest list, only inviting family and close friends.
 My mom and two sisters helped a lot, as well as my Mother-in-Law who let us get a lot of our party supplies from her store.
We had people pick team girl or team boy by the plates/cup/napkin etc that they chose to eat on before the reveal.
 We had some light appetizers and brunswick stew, it was so yummy!
 Obligatory family pic before the reveal 😊
 I bought some simple florals from Publix the day before; baby's breath and some lime & pink carnations. My aunt has a snowball bush in her yard, so she provided us with some of those as well!
My mom, sister, and I put these together in simple mason jars for a little centerpiece action.
 My oldest sister was the one responsible for the pretty box that we used for the reveal (because let's be honest, we all know I'm not crafty like that).

 Of course, Chris and I knew before hand but it was so much fun to reveal to all of our family & friends that we have a little boy coming in September!
My niece and nephew were pretty excited too (even though sweet Lola was team girl 😉)
 Hopefully this video will play so y'all can see the reveal too-there was too much tape on the box so unfortunately we had to tear into it (luckily Chris is tall enough to do that 😂) 
It was such a great moment though!

Now if any of y'all have little boys I need to know...where are your favorite places to shop for them?!
Bonus points if you can leave me your suggestions for what your must-have's are to register for as well!

Until next time. . .
