Security.

I love Mondays. I know not many people can say that, but I do. No work..all play! Chris and I were up at 5:15am today to feed all the animals and because he had to go back to work :( I must say it is amazing what you can accomplish when you wake up at the insane hour. I think I had all the dishes done, 4 loads of laundry washed, dried and folded, vacuumed the whole house, showered and was ready by 8am. That is a first!! I had much time to kill since I had the whole day to myself so I took Lily for a walk then headed off to Fashion Island. I was stoked because its like 2 minutes away from this house. I got there and felt so lost, I don't know when I was there last. It's been over a year. I had a blast and found some awesome things for the house and some new spring clothes for me. I was probably there an hour and a half and was ready to leave because I could carry no more.
I walked back to the car only to find that my jeep was not there. I walked the whole first level, second level and then went back down to the first level and started to panic. I called for security and this nice man came to pick me up in the security golf cart. I felt like a total retard as we were zooming through the isles with my arm sticking out of the golf cart trying to get my car to honk. We went down every isle, every level...nothing. I really started to freak when I was telling the man all that was in my car...my eyes started to well up with tears and I did my best to be mature. He called for the head security to put a search out for my car and I continued to hang my arm out of the golf cart and point my beeper thing to make my car alarm go off. Nothing! Finally, he was like...."are you sure you parked in this structure?" Umm, yeah I am pretty sure. I really don't know my way around the place so I could have parked somewhere else. (I didn't even know there were multiple parking structures.) We drove alllllll the way over to this other structure that looked a lot more familiar to me so once again we drove every isle with me trying to make my car honk and FINALLY! There was my baby, right where I parked it. I still feel like an idiot but the man was so nice and saved the day (and my arms and legs). 30 minutes after searching for the black beauty I was finally in with all my goodies.
I am never going to Fashion Island by myself again!!!

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…

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…
