sick dog.

I woke up sick as a dog this morning and all I wanted to do is sleep. When I'm sick I just want to be in my bed in my house. Lily came to get in bed with me after Chris left for work and just as I was about to go back to sleep the puppy dog threw up allll over the bed. (Sorry, I know that was gross.) I wanted to cry, it was the worst thing that could have happened at that moment. I had to tear apart the whole entire bed which meant no more sleeping for me. I just finished the laundry about an hour ago! Ah.
I felt a little better this afternoon and went to South Coast for a couple hours, it was fun but I have come decide that I don't like shopping by myself anymore. Thankfully, my car stayed right where I left it and I didn't have to track down the security guards.
Oh, I have some awesome news! Chris had a lunch date with a good friend of my grandpa Marshall. He owns as accounting firm that deals with businesses and corporations and is looking for a partner. They had a great meeting and both really liked each other. It looks like they will be getting together after the 15th to talk about possibilities. We are really encouraged and can't wait to see what God has planned with this.
We are on our 6th night here in Corona Del Mar and are still having a great time. Tonight, we took Lily for another nightly run in the park, played Skip-Bo and are now watching American Idol. Aside from this morning, it's been a beautiful day.

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…
