Washington day 4

Monday with grandpa and grandma was very educational. We drove and drove some more all around town. Saw a lot of beautiful places and ate lots more good food. We slept in and then took them out to breakfast, it was one of their favorite places and we agreed. It was called the "Oak Table" and I'm not even going to tell you what I ate. All I can say was I blew grams and gp away! We drove around Sequim and then went to see their new RV which is awesome. Then we went onto Port Townsend which is this cute little quaint town on the water. We went to a little place called "Nifty Fifties" for lunch and did a little shopping. They took us to a little lavender farm. Before I go any further...lavender is HUGE up here in Sequim! They make lavender everything! Lavender coffee drinks, lavender ice cream, lavender bread, cookies, chocolates...you name it...yes, we have tried it. I'm not going to lie, I am not a fan of lavender in my food except....for these little lavender crisp cookies that Grammy got us. Mmmm delicious! We have a couple packs :) Last night we took them to this little Italian place for dinner and had just a wonderful time. They told story after story about my sweet husband and we laughed so hard that our stomach's hurt. I have learned so much about my man and even more about my new grandparents. They have been special to me since the day I met them but I have fallen even more in love with them. One thing I learned was that they like to party! We stayed up so late every night playing games, talking, laughing, crying, playing the piano and organ with grandma. I wish I could have captured every moment on film. It's been fun Washington.


beautiful.

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…
