straggler.

Sorry, I have been terrible about blogging lately. We have had something going every night and by the time we get home I'm too hot and tired.
A recap of last week:
We had a meeting on Monday and Tuesday night, went to Bible study on Wednesday, Thursday I was in Long Beach for a meeting regarding the PINC ministry, Friday we had a little date night at home (smoked bbq ribs mac & cheese & peaches-Welcome Summe 2008). Yesterday we went to a good family friends house for a surprise party which was a blast! Last night we went to our Truth Project Bible study which we love! Today I got up at the crack of dawn to send 22 high school students off to Hume Lake for the week. It was so bitter sweet for me. I love that place, it's a very special place to me. It is my sisters first time going and I am soo excited for her! God is going to rock her world this week and I can't wait to hear all about it! Part of me wishes I was up there with them, it's so amazing. Church was so awesome today. It was so good to have Bob Kraining back. His message was all on being a servant and it was what we all needed to hear. Like I've said in previous blogs, put yourself aside...all your wants, your desires, your needs and cares and focus them on other people. Serve people! Love them like you want to be loved! It was so refreshing this morning and made my heart so happy!
Seriously, I am about to pass out on this laptop. I'm beat so I will update more later in the week with job status on my man!

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…
