And Our Padawan is a...

For what seems like weeks (reality it’s been only like two), Gus and I have been keeping another huge secret. A secret that has kept folks on pins and needles - the sex of our Padawan (Youngling for those of the extra nerdy kind).

I have to admit to you guys that I honestly have been genuinely surprised at the hype this has caused amongst family and friends. Folks have tried during this time to fool us into revealing our secret...to which all have failed. We were even bribed with money and, at one point, dinner and a big ticket item off our registry, but honestly, everyone finding out all at the same time felt a lot more fulfilling than letting it slip to anyone. 

Our gender reveal happened on Sunday, February 11th and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with how everything turned out. Check below for some of the highlights.

And here’s the reveal!! I explained that we would be revealing the sex two ways. One would be by way of lightsaber, where either the lightsaber would be Blue or Red. Another indicator would be the from the smoke that would come from blowing up the Death Star (like in Episode 4 of the Star Wars Saga..see clip here).

Gus and I are so excited with the fact that our Padawan is a boy. It was both of our first guesses from the very beginning. #nolie Now we are just planning and preparing for his 💙arrival (guys, you have no idea the relief it is to write a pronoun instead of “it” or “spawn”). Well, until our next update!

Hargrave Ever After

We first met Brittany and Glenn at the first bridal show we had ever participated in. :) We clicked immediately. Similar to our story, Brittany was having a tough time finding nautical themed invitations that had a little bit of Disney magic to them (without cuing in our favorite mermaid or missing clown fish). ;) 

Incorporating the colors mint, navy blue, gold and a little inspiration from the Disney Cruise line, we came up with a design that was perfect for this November Bride. We even added a little bit of Star Wars inspiration upon Glenn's request. ;) 

If you carefully notice, a little bit of pixie dust adorned each table number. :D

And I would be remiss not to include at least one photo of the lovely couple. ;)
