I’m so excited to finally be sharing this story with you today! When I first got pregnant I thought, no way, I’m not having a gender reveal, there is nothing creative left to do, no confetti balloons for me (no offense if that’s your jam). A few of my friends encouraged me to think about it and just do something little to celebrate the special milestone and nothing was clicking for me. Until one day I stumbled upon this adorable Mini Jeep on Amazon. Not 100% sure how that happened but I have bought parts for my Jeep and Sheep In A Jeep the kids book, so maybe Amazon’s algorithm deemed me fit to see an ad for that darling little ride on toy. As soon as I saw it I imagined myself driving that little Jeep across my parent’s lawn to share the news and I was sold. The perfect idea and just perfect for me. I also figured a photo of it next to my Jeep would make a great pregnancy announcement too (had to make it worth its price), and it did. However, the idea meant that I had to find out the gender alone, build the Jeep toy by myself, get it to the party, and keep it all a secret for weeks, which wasn’t easy at all but it was totally worth it. The event was short and sweet, just a fun quick celebration with my favorites to start our pregnancy journey. I filmed the reveal and there’s a fun little twist at the end, I hope you enjoy.
