Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I sure did! Forgot all about my healthy pregnancy diet ( as if I ever stuck to it!) and ate lots of fruit salad, cakes, chocolate ice cream, native sweets, and huge platefuls of wonderful carbs!! Love it!

Oh this is the closest I got to a preggy pic - taken last December 23. I'm 23 pounds heavier and just a few days away from giving birth.



I want to thank everyone who dropped by here in my blog, sent emails, and texted me wishing me a Merry Christmas and praying for a safe delivery of a healthy baby girl. I appreciate it so much and if only I could have enough time to surf the net and visit everyone's blog now - I would. Right now though I am still cleaning up some cabinet space for the coming little baby, preparing my hospital bag, completing DT deadlines, and most of all spending quality time with Nicole so that she will not feel insecure when her baby sister comes.

I'm posting here a layout I made for Prima's Christmas Fancy line. It features a picture of my friend Isabel and her daughter.


I may not be able to blog again for a while so please forgive me if I'm not able to visit you in your blogs. I'll be giving birth on December 30 via c-section and I'll be breastfeeding her exclusively so I'm not really sure when I can get back to my normal schedule. With all that said... I should also wish you an advanced HAPPY NEW YEAR too!

God bless you all this coming new year.

I will definetly order those. what can you say about it?

But definitively I found this locate selling them as a remedy for half price. I really love those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably buy those. what is your opinion?
