I am 2 days late, but Merry Christmas! Did everyone eat as much as I did?! I went to visit my Mami for Christmas Eve and then drove back home to spend time with Kevin's family. Between those 2 days I must've have gained 5 extra pounds. I ate Arroz con Gandules, Pernil, Escabeche, Potato Salad, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Dominican cake, Empanadas and Macaroni salad. I have not weighed myself and I don't plan on it. I do plan on starting a cleanse. Any recommendations would be very much appreciated. 

So now that Christmas is over, I can enjoy some of the sales going on and shop for my family vacation. I can't wait! Shopbop is having a Sale on Sale. An additional 25% off all sale items! Use code JOY25 and thank me later.

You guys I cannot believe the Holidays will soon be over! Makes me so sad, however I do hope January and February fly by, because I'm ready for Spring and our family vacation.

On another note I am feeling optimistic about 2018. There is so much that I want to share with you, but I want to take it step by step. So for now I'll just share that Kevin and I will be going through our first IVF treatment, but before that I will need to get open surgery to remove this giant fibroid that I have been dealing with for 2 years. 

If you guys remember, back in April, I had a minor surgery to remove it, but when my doctor went in with the camera, she didn't see anything, so absolutely nothing was done. I continued to have very heavy periods and lots of pain, so I decided to get a second opinion. This time my new Doctor saw the fibroid and it was bigger, so no wonder I am constantly feeling sick. 

Not only am I going through this procedure to have another baby, but to improve my quality of life. I am 35 years old and most of the time I feel like I am 65. 2017 has been tough, but I am trusting in God that all will turn out okay. 

Now lets talk about shopping! Because that always puts me in a happy mood. ShopBop has some amazing new arrivals that you must check out!

Who else stops to take photos wherever you see Christmas decor? Come on, I can't be the only one. I drive Kevin and Gavin nuts, but I can't help it. It's the only time when all the streets look so beautiful and festive. So expect to more garlands and more wreaths in my photos. (insert happy emoji)
