Have you heard the word on the street? I will soon look something like this – because I’m knocked up!

I laugh about how big I will get. Laughter really is the best medicine! Besides, I’m going to look freaking hilarious as I waddle around NYC, talking to people about sex. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it! But, there’s one thing I did before my baby weight consumes me. You know, while I can still move my arms and legs like a human being (and not a penguin) – hosted a gender reveal party!  Word on the street is I’m having a boy. And that word is 100% correct thanks to the Panorama screening!

How did I celebrate the fact that a penis is growing inside of me? By having close friends and family over for a gender reveal party – and teasing them to death! Muahahaha! Boo and I found out before everyone (we wanted that moment just for us). Then, I surprised everyone with the news. Here are some creative DIY ideas to throw a cozy, no-muss/no-fuss gender reveal party:

Just because I can't drink doesn't mean I will allow others to suffer the same fate! I made a tasty and super refreshing frozen drink  - a Coconut Limeade - and my gals loves it. They guzzled it up like the lushes that they are. #ProudMoment. And making it is super easy.

Ingredients: Frozen Limeonade Juice from Concentrate, Coco Lopez Coconut Milk (or any canned coconut milk), Ice (Optional: Malibu Coconut Rum)

How To: 1. Blend the Frozen Limeade Juice, ice and Coco Lopez Coconut Milk. 2. Add more coconut milk than juice as the juice is very tangy and sour. (If you want an extra punch (like my girls) you can splash some Malibu Coconut to the concoction.)
