Romans 8:28 (look it up)

Chris and I felt like we had a new born last night. We set Riley up in our room so we could keep a close eye on him. Chris woke me up at 2am to find Riley on his pillow without his party hat on. Somehow Riley took his hat off and jumped on the bed and took over his pillow. He is super cat. Then 5am came and there was Riley on the floor next to the bed without his hat on again, I put him in bed with us and he didn't get up until 10am. (Riley report:) He is doing better today. His little hands still hurt but he's getting better.
I had my small group girls over tonight and it was the biggest turn out yet, 6 of them came and totally took over the whole dining room table. It was an awesome night. We focused on "unanswered prayers". I know we have all prayed for something and in our eyes it wasn't answered. I have had a few experiences myself and wondered why God said "no" to my requests. I have learned that you never ask God "why" because He does have a plan through it all and one day we will understand. God knows our hearts. God can discern our real motives from our requests. He knows our motives before we even ask. God doesn't answer prayers that are prayed for the wrong reasons. "When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you many spend what you get on your pleasures."- James 4:3
I hope that encourages you and when you pray, remember who it is you are talking to. It is a privilege to pray.
"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently."- Romans 8:25

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…
