Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

So along with the nontraditional reveal for the gender reveal party, we went with a nontraditional theme as well... to go with the nontraditional name we've chosen for our baby boy. See if you can guess it before I tell you... My mom's friend made us this adorable "Hello Old Sport" chalk art sign that we displayed on the dessert table (which will eventually hang in the nursery).

The cupcakes were painstakingly handcrafted by Jess at Ladybug Baking Company.

Sensing a theme?

An impromptu "photo booth" added to the fun.

Any guesses? I suppose it's not entirely a surprise: I hinted at it months ago, even before I was pregnant... but baby #2's name will be:

Gatsby William - baby boy name @ohbotherblog

Gatsby William. I guess I should start preparing for him to dislike his name, like I will probably have to for his sister!
