It's good.

It has been a really great week for us. We've been able to spend a lot more time than usual together which has been awesome...last night Chris and I went to Yorba Regional Park and had a little nature walk. I was a little freaked walking through the forest of trees in the dark but it such a fun night. We saw a bat, a jumping fish and some little animal (not sure what it was)...very exciting. I felt like I was in a horror movie the whole time though because I looked over my shoulder every 4 seconds to make sure nothing was behind us. The whole time Chris was pointing out the good bass fishing areas in the lake. Just so you know if you would like to know where to catch bass in a lake, bring me along...I can point them out in nothing flat.
Small group with my high school girls was tonight and it was awesome! We have been talking about prayer and what God says about it. Prayer is intense and is a privlidge, it's sad to think that so many people don't take it seriously or only pray when things seem to go wrong in their life. An awesome chapter on Prayer is Matthew 6:5-15, it talks about how we are to pray. There's a verse at the end of it that really hit my girls and I.
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men of their sins, your Father will not forgive you".-Matthew 6:14-15
That is really big and is a great reminder to all of us to forgive those who have hurt us or done something wrong to us. My girls are awesome and we are all so excited to be digging in God's Word every week learning something new and growing in our walk. I am so thankful for God using me where I am at, even when I don't feel qualified.
It's time that I go and pack now, Chris and I are going to house/pet sit for 8 days in Corona Del Mar. We are really looking forward to it and getting away...we're going to make a little vacation out of it. I'll post more once we've settled in.

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…
