Our little secret….

So… I’ve been keeping a secret. A little tiny one. The secret has slowly been leaking out. Well… slowly depending on who we told… A little more quickly thanks to a few over zealous friends… 😉

Maybe you’ve noticed our blog posts aren’t as frequent here. Or that I’ve been spending a little less time on Twitter and Facebook and what not… Well, I think my little secret is a pretty good reason.

I posted the photos on my personal Facebook earlier, so really, all that’s left to tell is you, my bloggie buddies. Honestly, I am just as excited to share with you lovelies as I have been people I know in real life!!!

  33. Yeyyyy! So happy for you both! This is such exciting news! I had NO idea, so I think you are GREAT at keeping that secret, girl! haha So I’m guessing it will be a girl, right? Any names picked out yet? Started on a nursery yet? I’d love to know how you told your hubby, parents, etc. and any other details you want to share! Happy for you, friend! 🙂

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      THANKS friend! We are ecstatic!!! I have a few fun posts planned that details most of the questions that you’ve asked, so stay tuned. 🙂 Yes, as of right now we are 99% sure it’s a girl. I had a measurement sonogram at 16 weeks (last Wednesday), which is a little early for 100% certainty, but it clearly read girl on the sonogram.
      We’ve talked about names, but we haven’t officially narrowed any of them down yet. And as for a nursery, I’ve started looking for things and planning, but no real plans in stone yet either. 🙂 Thanks for all the fun questions!!!

  34. P.s. these pictures/announcement is SO you! I love it!

  35. YAY congrats!!!!!!! So so happy for you 🙂 And those pics are adorable!

  36. Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! Super cute pictures as well : )

  37. OMG,,, Kassi, that is wonderful news, AND totally good reason for being a little mia.

    That picture is just darling, and those “secret” boots look a little GIRL to me, is that what you two are expecting????? So cute.

    I’m very happy for you and your hubby, I hope you’ve been feeling well, and can’t wait to hear more about the baby to be 🙂

    Hugs, Bella

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:
