Two on Tuesday...

Tonight's blog agenda contains 2 completely unrelated topics.

First thing's first:

1. My new favorite beauty product. I actually read about it in this month's issue Real Simple and decided I needed to try it! I have always had undereye redness, which runs in my family (although I'm convinced I have it worse than any of my other family members!). Even though I have always had the redness, you can only imagine that it's getting worse now that I'm in my 30's! :)

I've tried several different undereye products, but they either don't work or they're way too expensive! I found this at CVS for about $12, which is very excitedly in my budget! Who would've thought that a green cream would actually do the trick. (YEP--it really is green!). Got undereye redness? Try it! ...and the best for last:

2. You may (or, well, may not) have seen my previous post about Henry becoming a big brother soon (which, of course means that I will be an aunt again!). It's no secret that I love my nephews like they're my very own, so I'm so excited about having another little one to love and spoil! Kristen is due in October, and we're hoping to find out baby Fyke's gender this weekend! Yay! Heather, Trey, and Jones will be here for Easter, so the family is getting together for the big gender announcement! And much like my friend Heather's "gender announcement party," we're asked to wear either pink or blue--according to our prediction. I've mentioned before that when it comes to predicting a baby's gender, I'm wrong approximately 80% of the time. Not even kidding. I obviously and most importantly want my sister to have a healthy baby, so the gender-guessing is all in fun. BUT---if you want to know my prediction, I think she's having another boy. Yep! I'll be wearing blue Saturday night! I've just always seen Kristen with all boys and I think Henry would have the best time with a little brother. Then again, he would be so very sweet with a little sister, too, and I would love buying clothes for a sweet baby girl! Either way, I'm excited and can't wait to find out.

What's your prediction? Do you think I'm going to be blessed with my 3rd nephew or my 1st niece? Stay tuned to find out! :)

I'm gonna vote girl, considering that I think girls are pretty awesome! I wouldn't even know what to do with a boy. My husband told me during both my pregnancies that he thought they all were girls; I think he's got a sixth sense when it comes to baby predicting. I know your family will truly be blessed either way. Congrats to your entire family.
