Weekends

Friday night is our favorite time of the week. The weekend is here and that means we get 2 full days together. Ever since Chris has started his new job where he doesn't have to work weekends anymore we set aside those 2 days for us and go off and do whatever we feel like doing. For the past couple weeks it has been hiking. We go all over Yorba Linda with no clue where we're at and always seem to find our way home....3 miles later. There was however no exploring this weekend, by foot anyway.
Yesterday we went to visit Pops. It was so good to see him, it had almost been a month! He is hanging in there and by that I mean I have no clue how he is really doing. It seems like there are so many things wrong with him and he doesn't even know half of them. It's really frustrating to be there with him and ask why his arm is 2x the size it should be and noone has even checked on it. I took him some sugar free snacks to try to cheer him up and to get some weight on him. It's not right that he weighs less than me!
Chris and I spent the rest of the day out in the front yard gardening. I planted a ton of flowers and dug up a bunch of old shrubs and weeds. It looks soo beauuuutiful out there now. Chris also re-did our water main and put on some new and improved valve thing that took all afternoon. Check out Riley, he watched Chris all afternoon out his window.. he was very upset that we left him inside.


Last night we went to a Valentines Dinner at church. It was such an awesome night. We got there an hour late but made it just in time for dinner! God has been so good to us....we are forever thankful for all He has done and is doing in our life.

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…
