** GIVEAWAYS CLOSED **
(Honeybear Lane used a similar graphic for her gender reveal party, so thanks for the idea!)
The most common question I've gotten this pregnancy is, "Are you hoping for a boy?" or some variation of that.
It's a natural question, since we've got two girls already.
And if I'm being honest, if I could choose, I probably would choose a boy. I want to experience having both boys and girls. It would be fun to do something different this time again.
But that being said, we make some pretty darn cute girls, and we'll be absolutely thrilled to have another one.
So what do I think we're having?
Wait a minute.
Before you start throwing in your hat with me, let me tell you that I also was convinced that both of my girls were boys.
My mother's intuition? Well, it's not there apparently. At least not when it comes to guessing what our babies are!
And at this point, you might even call it wishful thinking. :)
We find out one week from today what our sweet little babe is, and I thought it would be fun to have a little par-tay here on the blog with all of you!
I want YOU to guess what our baby is!
If you get it right, you'll have a chance to win one of these fantastic prizes:
** $25 gift certificate to A.Okay Designs. **
Baby may just need one of these cute Pixie stocking caps. My due date is in the winter after all!
There are also lots of different appliqued onesies. I'm loving this argyle one!
You can also visit Crystal's blog, Crystal's Craft Spot for tutorials and ideas, and keep up with Crystal on her Facebook page, too! She's a total sweetheart!
** $25 gift certificate to Flamingo Toes Designs **
There are lots of beautiful items to choose from. Some of my faves are these Pearl Cluster Earrings

** 3 Pack of Sewing E-Books of your choice from Whimsy Couture **
I own many patterns from Whimsy Couture, and I love that they are easy to follow and understand; I'm still a beginning seamstress! Plus, everything is just to die for cute!
These lacettes (leg warmers) are next on my list to purchase. Sooo cute with the ruffle fabric!
The strappy tops/dresses pattern is one of my all time faves. This is a picture of my one year old wearing what might be one of my favorite things I've ever made using this pattern.
Denise is so kind and wonderful, and you'll want to keep up with her on her Whimsy Couture blog, as well as her Facebook page.
** 2 Patterns of choice from Little Lizard King **
This is another fantastic pattern shop! I have a few patterns from Little Lizard King, and they always produce a beautiful product!

** Cookbook and Apron from Aunt Peg's Recipe Box **
Yep, that is the same talent that's behind Aunt Peg's Jewelry. Holy amazing multi tasking awesomeness, right?
This apron is from Not Your Grandma's Apron. Don't you just want to go cook something so you can wear it?
And this cookbook is sure to be filled with lots of delicious recipes.
Maybe this recipe for the cheesey spinach scramble is in there?
Don't these Hawaii Melt in your Mouth shortbread cookies look tasty? I'd kind of like one (or ten) right now. (Hey, baby wants them! Who am I to say no?)
** Nursing cover from Smashed Peas and Carrots **
If you aren't following Maggie over at Smashed Peas and Carrots, they you are missing out! Maggie and I have been email buddies for awhile now, and she is honestly one of the sweetest, nicest, most real people ever! You will fall in love with her, her cute kids, and her amazing talents!

Maggie is offering up this stylish nursing cover to one of you! Isn't it fantastic?
You can also keep up with the adorable Maggie on her blog, Facebook, and Twitter. You won't be sorry that you did!
So, are you sufficiently encouraged to enter this giveaway?
There is some amazing stuff up for grabs!
It's worth....well, let's just say, it's worth a lot. I wasn't good at math before I started having kids, and now that I'm pregnant with baby #3, I'd say that has earned me the right to take a pass on figuring out tough (or not so tough) stuff.
We're going to keep this simple, though!
All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me if you are voting boy or girl!
If you want an extra entry, leave a separate comment with a name suggestion to go with your gender choice.
After I find out what this precious little babe of ours is, I'll draw winners from those who guessed right - one winner for each giveaway!
There are nine giveaways, so there will be nine winners. (Yeah, I know. Counting is kind of like math.)
Good luck, and thanks for partying with me during this exciting time for our family!
