Solvang, Day 1

We're here!! We left around 10:30 this morning and arrived in Solvang around 3:30 after stopping in Santa Barbara for lunch. It is so gorgeous up here! Chris and I are having the best time with eachother! It's such a different way of life here and so nice to just slow down for a couple days and enjoy each other and all the amazing things God has up here. We checked into our ever so fancy hotel, the King Frederick Best Western (ha!) We actually like it, it's in the smack down center of Solvang. Check out the sweet picture of the entrance to our room...118 baby.
We forgot that it's a long weekend and every single hotel is booked, including ours!

Once we got settled in we hit the streets and walked around all these little cozy quaint ourselves some coffee and walked and talked and just enjoyed each others company so much. Tonight we went to the Heidelberg Inn for dinner. It was this tiny little restaurant that had maybe 7 tables and was so yummy! For dessert we had aebleskivers which I have been trying to make at home. (their's are much better!)

It's 8:15 and we're whipped.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day!

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…
