Here goes nothin....

Hi loved ones.....
Here we are in the 3rd week of the new year and 3.5 months into our marriage. It is so amazing as I sit here and think about where we were this time last year. God did some incredible things in 2007...we got engaged on January 24th....bought our home in March....fixed the whole thing up...planned our wedding....married....honeymooned....and got our first pet! It was an amazing year. We feel so blessed to have such an amazing family and group of friends who surround us.
We are so excited to see what 2008 has in store....We are off to a good start! Chris started a new job yesterday. He is still with Enterprise just a different division of the company. He is now an "Account Executive" for the Rideshare department. We are excited to see how God is going to use him there and all that He has planned. He is a little overwhelmed and completely exhausted right now, so keep my sweet husband in your prayers. :)
My job has also changed a little, for the past two years I have been working at our church in Anaheim Hills as the High School Administrator. It has to be the best job in the world (for me anyway). It may not make me rich but the joy I get from doing my job and serving the Lord is priceless. I am now the "Youth Ministries Administrator" so what that means is I now have Jr. High along with High School under my scope. It has been a challenge the past couple weeks but I'm really excited to dig into it. I am in the office 2-3 days a week and do the rest from home. I can't complain....plus hanging out with the high schoolers every week is so awesome and such a passion of mine.
I'm excited to be part of the "blogging world" now! This is just a way for us to keep all of you updated on our life....it will be here if you are interested. That's it for our first blog...

Much Love,
The Andrews

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…
