blue.

Ever have those days where you're just kind of sad and down in the dumps? To be honest with you, I don't have them often if at all but I am today. I took Riley into the vet this morning to have his claws taken out and to have him neutered. It was terrible, I am so protective over him and I hate knowing that I won't get him back until Wednesday and that he is in pain, drives me crazy! What am I going to do when I'm a mom of a baby? I'm crazy over that little guy.
I've been thinking about my Pops a lot lately. I get so bummed out when I stop and think of him. I normally will distract myself when my mind goes to him because I can't handle it yet. I've dealt with his death really well so far. I thought I would be a wreck day in and day out but the Lord has kept me strong, especially for grandma. I heard the song "Tears in Heaven" this morning and for some reason it got to me. I used to love the song when I was younger, I would think of my brother and sister who are in Heaven and would wonder all the time if they will know who I am and if I will know who they are when I get to Heaven. It's the first time I've heard it since my Pops passed away and I broke down wondering if he will remember me when I get there. I'm sure he will but I don't know. I know one thing for sure and that is there are no tears in Heaven and that I will get to see my loved ones again up there.
Anyway, here's the song....

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…
