In awe.

We have had such a great night just soaking in God's faithfulness and mercy. We are so grateful for what He has done. Chris built our new BBQ tonight and we broke it in with some amazing southern bbq ribs. Mmmm. We both feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of our shoulders and there is now peace flowing in our hearts. It was so nice to sit in our little backyard tonight and just soak in all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. It is amazing when you take time to think about all of the wonderful things God has done in your life. You will always find that He is faithful. Whether the outcome is what you wanted or not, He is faithful. His plan for our life is far better than the most amazing plan we could ever come up with. It's true. If it was up to us, Chris and I would have a totally different life and he would have left Enterprise a lot sooner than now. I am so glad that the plan for our life isn't in our hands. We would be a mess. We also find comfort in knowing that the things we own really aren't ours. They are the Lord's and He will give and take as He pleases. He knows our needs and we have learned first hand that He will provide. I am truly amazed as I sit here tonight. A new job might not seem like a big deal to some of you, but to us it is. It is a blessing that we really can't even explain. It means we can now save for our future and our future kids. I am so excited. We want nothing more than to be able to provide a nice life for our kids like our parents have done for us. All in God's timing..it will happen. But, before the kiddos come we have to get the house finished and we are well on our way! We picked up our doors that came in yesterday and Chris got one up tonight. Ah, the simple things in life... closet doors to hide my mess!
One more thing...a year ago today I was on the houseboat trip with the high school group and broke my back. I honestly can't believe that it has been a year. The bones have fused back together but the pain is unbearable at times from my muscles. Please pray for the pain to subside.
If anything that I am trying to express tonight it is this: Never give up on Christ. He has a perfect plan for your life. He is faithful and He wants the best for you. All in His perfect timing loved ones...

my happy man

new closet door!

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…
