chaos.

It is getting harder and harder for me to wake up in the morning. Today it was 5am when I heard something at the bedroom door, I about have a heart attack every morning when a knocking/scratching sound is pouncing at the door. Nala is a very needy girl at she lets you know when she is ready to eat and have her morning milk. (Nala is a cat!) Just as I'm about to get up to stop the non-sense, Lily (the big golden retriever) will come and lay right on top of me and fall asleep. I'm not too used to all of this yet but we're getting there.
I went up to work for a little bit today and got everything done for the week in just a couple of hours. I am so thankful for my job. It is amazing and I am loving it so much more now! I could not ask for more. Chris and I met at our house for lunch which is what we normally do everyday so that was fun. I went to visit my Riley cat at mom and dads this afternoon for like 7 minutes before heading off to an appointment but it was a great 7 minutes. I miss that little guy so much! He misses me too, as soon as I left mom said he was freaking out (that means meowing a lot).
We are having an absolute blast down here, I could pretty much move in and not miss our house at all, in fact I'm going to ask Kathleen if she wouldn't mind switching houses and leaving Lily here with us.
Tonight we went to grandma and grandpas for dinner. They are just down the street from us which is so awesome! Grandma made one of my favorite dinners of all time-hamburger pattys. MMM, it was so delicious! We also played team Skip Bo, girls against guys. Grandma and I creamed the guys the first game and then they got us, we're going back over on Thursday night for dinner and games again for the championship so stay tuned! I love grandparents, I am so thankful for the family that God has blessed me with and my new family with the Andrews. They are the best.
Ok, I'm exhausted and Lord knows that 5am will be here before we know it.

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…
