Today I’m guest blogging over at Chasin’ Mason as part of Elizabeth’s continuing series #BOYMOMS.  If you’re visiting from Chasin’ Mason, welcome!  And if you’re a Bright on a Budget regular, I hope you’ll hop on over to Chasin’ Mason to check out my post and Elizabeth’s blog.

So You’re Having a Boy. . .Now What?  
I’m talking about my experience of finding out I was having a boy, including what you should know if, like me, you’re totally unprepared for having a boy!
