My 2017 in Review

This is literally the last day of 2017. I can't believe it's coming to an end. I have not been blogging very much this year, due to my blog had technical difficulties and then my life was a well...busy.

If you follow me on Instagram, you pretty much are caught up in everything, but for those that don't follow me, I wanted to share my year in review with you all. It's been quite a journey.

The biggest thing to happen this year...we are having a baby!!!!!! Praying third time is the charm. After two miscarriages i through in the towel and decided thats it, I'm not going to try again. My heart  wouldn't be able to take it. My husband was extremely supportive and just as down as me. But God knows what he is doing. He blessed us with another try. Currently I'm 35 weeks pregnant and we are having a BOY! We are so excited and just can't wait to hold him. I still can't believe how far along I am and how much he moves. It's amazing how much he moves when my husband is talking to him. Our due date is 02/07/2018.


This year I went to my first SUNA (Society for Urological Nurses and Associates) conference with my coworkers. It was a four day conference with many lectures by amazing Nurses and Doctors. An incredible experience.

I walked my in my first heart walk marathon. I was about four months pregnant and man did I swell up, haha. It was an extremely hot day but nonetheless we had a ton of fun that day. My hospital was reppin' big time. I think half the hospital was there. 

My baby graduated from the 8th grade. I cried so much that day, haha. She started high school in August and thankfully has a 3.7 GPA at the moment. My little baby started the 6th grade this year. I can't believe how much she has grown. She used to love to take pictures with me, but she's kinda over it. haha, booger!

We went to New York. In all honesty, I don't think I was in the best condition to be in New York and appreciate its beauty. Here my girls (in a rare sisterly moment) were goofing around in the Dumbo neighborhood in Brooklyn, it was beautiful. We seen so much and did SO MUCH FREAKING WALKING!!!! I got really sick on the flight to New York. My morning sickness was pretty bad while in New York. I really want to go back some day. 

I met the AMAZING YouTuber Charmaine Dulak this year! We had dinner at a Japanese restaurant. She is by far the sweetest most down to earth woman I've met. She was so cool and fun to hang out with. I also met a few of her other friends who were equally amazing and sweet. 

My husband took us to a white sox game. It was so much fun but bitterly cold. But we stuck it out and watched the whole game and fireworks show afterward. We had blankets and lots of hot chocolate. Best of all, our team won!! 

Six months pregnant with my son. We were going to a wedding this day.

I purchased one of my dream bags this year. The Louis Vuitton Alma BB in damiere ebene print. Thanks to my amazing friend Mendy from Mendy's designer handbag layaway. I purchased one of my dream bags. My last LV purchase of 2017, haha. 

New phone...who dis?  My wonderful husband purchased the iPhone X for me as a christmas gift. I've only had it a few days and I'm still getting the hang of it. It's so different from my 7+. 

Sure there have been pretty messed up things that happened this year, thankfully they are few and far in-between and honesty, who wants to hear of that stuff.

Thanks so much for reading!

Here's to an awesome 2018 and to being a better blogger! ;)
