So it's been a long, hot and productive weekend. I'm already over this weather and ready for it to cool down about 15 degrees! We got a ton done on the house yesterday...Chris tore out an ugly green shrub that was on the side of the house and planted a big beautiful queen palm, I planted more flowers (we are idiots for working outside in 106' weather), I did some touch up paint around the house, washed all the windows and screens in the house and then cleaned the house. I am a total clean freak and I realize that more and more each month. I can't stand a dirty house. Last night we did something totally out of the ordinary and went to dessert at 9:30pm. For some reason we have gotten in the habit of being back home by 10pm-we are like old people. We went to Melting Pot. Not huge fans of the dinners there but we got a cheese fondue to start and then had the most incredible dessert, it was milk chocolate with carmel...I made myself so sick over it. We dipped strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, brownies, pound cake, rice crispy treats, cherry's and cheesecake in it. We went home and went straight to bed to sleep off our chocolate coma. Such fun! We decided that we are going to start getting out a lot more often.
Pool time!

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…
