we're still here

It has been a crazy week, hence no blogging. Chris started his new job at the firm on Tuesday, good thing it was only a 4 day work week. New jobs are hard, frustrating but exciting too. That was his week. I am so excited for him, he is going to do so well there! They all already love him, considering there are only like 6 guys that work in the firm- the rest are chicks. I worked 3 out of my 4 jobs last week: administrator (at church), house cleaner (for my parents) and nanny (for Brighton and baby Brennan). I was busy but it was a great week.
Yesterday, we celebrated Chris' birthday (again) with his family and mine. We had a great BBQ at his parents house. I don't think he has ever celebrated as much as he has this year and he's not even 30 yet!
Today was awesome. We went to the angel game with my family and hung out at their house and swam then went to the lake by our house and had a nice walk. It is so nice having extra time to spend with my hubby. We both are missing the high school kids and serving there but stepping down was probably the best thing for us and our marriage. Things are great here in the Andrews household. We have much to be thankful for.

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…
