GENDER REVEAL

 

We are ecstatic!!!
We knew from day 1 that it was a _____! Oh yeah, you have to watch the video! :)

Not to get all freaky on you but I consider myself a very intuitive person! Since the day we found out we were pregnant, we have been calling the baby by its gender! I also had two dreams that it was a _____ BEFORE we even knew we were pregnant, and I took it as a sign! Mind you, I am not superstitious, nor do I practice magic, nor voodoo... but those who know me, know I am intuitive. Maybe it's a crazy latin thing!  Our first attempt at finding out the sex, they told us their evaluation which happened to be correct! So Chris didn't even want to go back for the conclusion! But hunch- or no hunch, I can't buy baby clothes without knowing 100%!

And for my pregnant girlfriends who've asked if I've found any Old Wives Tales to be true .....Nope. Not at all! Most of what I read or did-- predicted the opposite and a lot of articles contradicted one another. So, nope. Nothing! (So sorry) The one thing that I have heard that was correct was; If I am craving salt, then it's a _____!

It was so fun seeing everyone's guesses though! I love how interactive you all are!!! I just wanna hug you and party with you!!! Thank you for being so involved!!! 

Now... to start planning the baby shower!!!

DRESS C/O PBJ BOUTIQUE | PBJ Insta | SUNNIES Similar | NECKLACE Similar | CLUTCH Similar| BOOTIES Similar

 

As you can tell from the pictures, this dress made me feel goooood! My lovely striped furlow dress is from PBJ boutique!!! If it was up to me, half of my closet would be Target (duh) and the other half would be PBJ! Every piece I have gotten from them, I wear the heck out of it, and it's very much my style!

I am now 17 weeks pregnant and the number of items in my closet that are wearable are getting smaller and smaller, but I can tell that this dress and I are gonna be friends ;) I've already worn it about 4 times and I have no shame!

PREGNANCY UPDATES

  • Nausea is almost gone
  • All-day sleepiness is almost gone
  • I love salty things. Lays Potato chips are my new fav!
  • I have two breakfasts before noon
  • Aside from the very occasional pimple, my skin has been super good to me. I just wash my face twice a day-everyday with a light soap and moisturize after I wash. 
  • No stretch marks so far. I rub Vaseline Coconut Butter Lotion AND coconut oil every day!
  • We found out the Gender at week 16. Attempted at week 15, but baby didnt want to show us the goods! Gender reveal coming this week!
  • We have been feeling the baby move since week 13. I didn't want to say anything until I was sure that what I was feeling was the baby, and it has been the baby this whole time! The first time I felt the baby was like pure magic. Chris was next to me and I quickly grabbed his hand and put it on my tummy and he felt it too! It was like being told  we were pregnant all over again! ... So naturally I started bawling! 

Best feeling ever!!!!

Happy New Year's Eve! Here is Part 2 of Natalie Wynn's Holiday LookBook Shoot but I am not going to talk about that!

New Years is one of my favorite Holidays! I am a very festive person! It must be the Latin in me, so I may have said this about all Holidays! But I love the Spirit of New Years! The dressing up! Food! Music! Fire works! The Fresh Start! AND THE COUNTDOWN!!!!

This year Chris and I have decided to stay in and have a Private Celebration!...
... No, I don't just mean sexy time! We have actual plans!...

Tonight we have decided to make ourselves a 3 course meal of fondue, Do movie marathons and watch the NetFlix New Years Countdown! Oh and we have sparkling cider and sparkle sticks!!! We are so freaking excited and what better way to celebrate our last New Years Eve as a family of two!

Happy New Years Eve to you all! Wishing the best celebration and a safe one!

MAKE FONDUE AT HOME!
