Riffles or Ruffles?



I think everyone knows that I gave birth to a happy bouncing baby boy but before everyone learned the gender of my baby, most of my friends thought that I was carrying a baby girl.  I think there were only two or three people who have guessed the correct gender of my gummy bear and that includes my husband.  I am so grateful for the outpour of excitement and love for our tiny miracle.  My closed friends were present during the Riffles or Ruffles Gender Reveal Party and everyone had a blast during the party but how we gathered our friends and prepared for the Gender Reveal was more thrilling.

Three days before the party proper, we went to our doctor and asked her to write down the gender of our baby.  She happily obliged and even put the paper on a double envelope so that it’s properly sealed, of course the mister and I made sure that we wouldn’t be tempted to open it.

After our doctor’s appointment we then bought stuff for the party, arranged the cake and of course groceries for the food to be cooked during that day.

The mister and I together, with my crazy friends prepared the decoration and constructed a cute blue and pink theme at our dining area. I was very excited because there is nothing more special than to celebrate the welcoming of our tiny miracle, the new beginning for our growing family.

Everyone was betting on their individual guesses but I had a feeling that I will be having a girl most of the clues from an old wive’s tale is saying that I am having a girl. But the Chinese Calendar says it will be a boy while the Himalayan Calendar says it will be a girl.  I was hoping that it would be a girl but the mister was praying that it would be a boy but either way we don’t really care as long as our tiny munchkin is going to be healthy and strong.


I decided to do a DIY Pinata Lantern for the big reveal but we let our stay-out helper to put the confettis whether it’s going to be a girl or boy.  I was really tempted to take a peek but I was glad that I was able to control myself.

When the time came to pull out the surprise, I was pretty shock that it rained blue confettis on our dining table.  Everyone was shocked as well because majority of my friends voted for a girl.  Of course the mister was still reluctant about the result, he thought that our household helper wasn’t able to understand my instruction and put in the wrong color so we read the paper and it really said that we are having a BABY BOY.  Even though it was a bit late but the mister jump with glee.

We couldn’t be any happier! The mister is pretty excited to meet our little warrior.  The party ended with sweet conversations with my closed friends and it was everything that I ever wanted.  We were surrounded by the people we love the most and of course I was in the comfort with my family.
