missing them.

Last night Chris and I went to one of our high schoolers grad party which was awesome. Then we went to mom and dads so Chris could play wii with dad and smoke Cuban cigars and so mom and I could ride bikes for our nightly exercise. We had an awesome time and made s'mores....mom busted out some old dvds from our church when we first broke off from Calvary and had our first day as "Kindred" at the Elks Lodge. It was the coolest thing but so sad. Chuck wasn't sick yet and the church was booming and you could see Christ' love flow there. Ahh as time goes by you slightly forget how amazing it was and what an incredible teacher Chuck was. Then we watched the 1st anniversary of Kindred and also the first morning on the new property. Chuck was very sick then and ended up passing away 7 months later. We stayed until 12:15am just watching amazing memories. We also watched his memorial service...ahh my heart is broken. Time does help heal the pain but it's so hard to understand why the Lord chose to take such an incredible man home at 48. We miss him dearly. My sweet friend is so strong, I don't know how she does it....losing her dad at such a young age. The Obremskis are an amazing family. I am so thankful for them. I know Chuck and Pops would not want it any other way than to be in Heaven with Christ but I am missing them so much.

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…
