 Oh My Goodness, I have so much to share with all of you. First let's start with the big news. Some of you that follow my personal Facebook page and also the blog's Facebook page know this already.
We are having a BOY!!!
We had such a blast with the Gender Party. For those that don't know what a "Gender Party" is, it's simply a party to reveal the sex of the baby, a really fun way to get your loved ones together and share such wonderful news.
The way we wanted to reveal the sex of our baby to our family and friends was with a big box we made ourselves and filled it with balloons so as soon as we opened the box they would pop up.
Everyone was so excited and couldn't wait to find out. 80% predicted a boy, but I got a few people confused when I arrived with a pink dress. LOL
When I was pregnant with Sofia, everyone told me "you will have a boy for sure". Lol
This time most of you got it right! :)
The party took place at my sister in law's home since we wanted to get everyone together. Her father in law, is really old and does not get out of the house anymore so I decided we should have it there so no one would miss the party. 
We brought our decorations and ordered some delicious food, my sister in law made a few dishes and my mom made the deserts and appetizers.  
We got some really adorable baby stuff, cash and gift certificates for our baby.
I will share the new baby stuff we got in a later post.
I even got a gorgeous Michael Kors bag from my husband, purchased on Black Friday.
How was your shopping on Black Friday? Did you enjoy some great deals?
I promise I will share real soon our Black Friday shopping, we found amazing deals.
Stay tuned!
Take care
