re-cap

It's been a fun past couple of days. Chris and I had two date nights last week which was awesome! We went to a couple of our favorites, Shiki and Wood Ranch. Mmmm! Thursday night we had dinner at his parents house and they had his high school pastor over and his family. They are such great people, it was such a joy to meet them and spend some time with them. Last night we went to grandma and grandpas house for dinner, it was a spur of the moment thing and it worked out so well. We had been missing them so it was great to get down there and spend some time with them and hear more of grandpas stories. I didn't get to video any of them this time, I was too into them. The best part was them telling us how they like to flirt with other people. Grandpa said he has ladies that flirt with him all the time but he doesn't flirt back, he just looks. Grandma loves to flirt and apparently has the men all over her- I believe it! They are too funny! I guess when you have been married for 58 years you can do that.
Both Chris and I worked today. He is at his parents house installing TVs and I worked two weddings at church. The first wedding this morning was interesting and I was put to work right away when the brides dress split. The zipper busted and she was hanging out! So glad I learned to sew a few years back (thanks aunt Jamie!). We sewed and pinned her in as best as we could and sent her on down that isle! I love weddings- they are so much work but so fun to watch.
My kiddos are home from Hume! I got to see them as they arrived today! Sounds like they had a blast, I'm on my way to meet my husband and my family for a nice dinner and to hear all the camp stories...
Ciao!

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…
