Chuck Obremski

Today was the annual Chuck Obremski golf tournament. For those of you who don't know, Chuck Obremski was the founding Pastor of Kindred Community Church. He was an incredible man of God who showed the love of Christ to others until the Lord took him home after fighting his battle with cancer. He taught me so much and still does through all of his sermons on Cd's. There is a website now up and running where you too will eventually be able to listen to his sermons. Go to www.chuckobremski.com for more info. After the tournament there was a nice dinner at the golf club which was great. Tim Salmon gave a great message and spoke about his friendship with Chuck and how he touched his life. I miss that man so much! Tonight there was also a raffle and silent auction that went on and.....I was a winner!!!!! I can't tell you how excited I was (and still am!!). I jumped out of my chair like no ones business and ran down screaming. I won a big and beautiful Dooney and Bourke purse. The best part was I only paid $20 in raffle tickets!! Woooo! Thank you Jesus! It was definitely time for a new purse. It is only a "thing" but I love it and am thankful for it! I will probably never be able to live my reaction down but I couldn't contain myself. Just a good thing we didn't win the flat panel, I probably would have broken my back all over from jumping up and down. Ok...that's it. Time to fill my new purse!


Sorry, I'm excited!

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…
