happy day.

Today was wonderful. I went to grandma and grandpas this afternoon and went to Panera for lunch with grandma. After lunch we went and walked around the Castaways, it is such a beautiful walk! We had a great time just walking and talking. I came home around 2:30 and Chris arrived home just 5 minutes after me so that was a nice surprise! We had such a fun afternoon! I made brownies for tonight and then we went to Rogers Garden. What a fun place that is! We or I guess it was more like I found some adorable things for our room/bathroom. I am so excited.
Tonight was our favorite yet, we went back over to grandma and grandpas for dinner and our championship game of Skip Bo. Grandpa grilled up some fabulous salmon, very good! We got right into the game, grandma and I whooped the guys the first game, the boys came back on the second and then we smoked them for the championship. They said we cheated, it was very intense but we did win fare and square. It was amazing. I did the winners dance for a while. In fact, I still am because its the first time I have been able to kick Chris' butt in that game in a while. I love it! After a beautiful win we all sat around and chatted for a couple of hours. Grandpa told some amazing stories, I don't know where they come from or how he is still alive after everything we have heard but I caught a few on tape. He is hilarious and I love him so much. We could sit and listen to him all day. It has been such a great day and I am sad to see it end but we have some pretty fun things planned for tomorrow.
PS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister in law, Aubrey!!!!! Hope you had a great day!!!
That's it from us for today, grandpa sorry about the loss. (maybe next time?)

WINNERS! (look at grandpas "C")
He did this for "Cheaters"
whatever.


I still love him even though he is a loser at Skip Bo.


Here is one of grandpas stories.


and another...... I LOVE his stories!

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…
