    I have been on Pinterest, as well, looking around and shower and gender reveal ideas. I saw one that I fell in love with as well as my fiance. At our appointment we will have the doctor mark the gender on a piece of paper that we will have for them and then seal it in the envelope. We will then go to Babies R Us and pick out 2 outfits: one for a boy, one for a girl (which we then decided that that outfit will be the one we bring them home in :) ). The cashier will be given the outfits and the envelope to wrap the corresponding outfit as we are turned around. Then we will have party and open it together :) I am super excited! And of course…we’ll have the cake. :)
