good times..

We have had the best weekend up in Arrowhead with my family. Chris, Riley and I arrived at the house around 8pm last night and pretty much crashed into bed. Riley was the best little passenger....not a peep! Well once but that's when we went through KFC and got us some fried chicken.
We slept in until 8am which is amazing for us! Chris and I headed off to the Arrowhead village in search of a barber because he was long over due for a hair cut. There are apparently no barbers up here but we managed to find a salon. Ha! I thought Chris was going to die when we walked in and asked to get his hair cut....$30 later he looks amazing! (He's used to paying $7) Mom and dad met us up at the Village and spent a couple hours shopping....we all left with some great buys! We also went to the best bakery in town! I am obsessed with the cinnamon rolls...as you can see Chris and I were fighting over who got the frosting!! We went back to our cabin and the boys smoked cigars (they tried last night and had to cut it short due to the 30 degree weather) and mom and I took Riley outside to play in the snow. I'll post some pics.
Megan and Flo (aka Melissa Samsvick) goofed off all day in the snow while mom and I tried to beat dad and Chris at Sequence but failed miserably. Man, I hate losing at games! We all went to an awesome Mexican restaurant back at the village and had another memorable time there. I will not go into detail but it was awesome :)
Here we are, it's 9:20pm and we're all in jammies...Chris and I just got our butts kicked at Skip-Bo by mom and dad....I think it's time to call it a day. I've been running up and down the 3 flights of stairs here trying to find internet to write this dang blog. I'm out of breath and out of shape...oh yes, it's been a wonderful day and we are looking forward to tomorrow. Enjoy some of our pics.
I would have posted more except my camera battery died..dang!
Lots of love!



My snow baby....

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
