Answered prayer

Today has been weird. First of all I got no sleep last night. I was stressed out last night and had an asthma attack because for some reason I was worried about my parents flying to Maui today. I've never been scared of them flying or traveling but I had a bad feeling last night. I didn't say anything to them about it because I didn't want to scare mom. So i kept it to myself and just prayed. Their plane left at 10am and all morning before then I was praying for them. As 10am approached I said "ok Lord, you're in control". I was sitting at my desk on my computer at 11:40 when I got a text message from mom. First thing that came to my mind was "what the heck, you're supposed to be flying right now" I opened it and it said "we just made an emergency landing with fire truck escort. Thank the Lord we are alive. I love you and will call you as soon as I can. xoxo" I knew it! I knew in my heart that something was going to go wrong. It had been so heavy on my heart and I knew I had to pray. I texted mom back to see where they were and told her to call asap. Apparently they were about an hour into the flight and over the ocean when the captain came on and said that they had to turn around and make an emergency landing. He said there was something wrong with the electrical system. So as they are flying over the ocean they let out the landing gear, they tried to let out the gasoline but it wouldn't come out. You can imagine the fear inside everyone. They thought they were going down. Thank God they weren't half way to Maui! God is awesome. They made it back to LAX with fire trucks surrounding and foam on the ground in case the plane caught on fire on landing. Mom said she had a bad feeling about it too and so she updated their trust this morning. Dad said that when they got on the plane he didn't have an easy feeling about it either. He kept reciting Psalm 91. How awesome is our God though?! He took control and the plane and the situation! As as I was writing the previous entry on Chuck and Pops I was crying the whole time. I didn't know why, the tears were just flowing. The same time I was writing that was when they were having trouble in the air. Also our two really close family friends felt in their heart that they needed to pray at 11:15am. They were both by themselves and felt prompted to pray. That is when they were trying to land! God works in marvelous ways and this is such an awesome reminder that we need to let go of control in our life and let God be the pilot and direct us. It's 10:00pm and I just got the call from them-they are safe in beautiful Maui! Have so much fun mom and dad. We love you and are so excited for you guys. Enjoy your 10 days in Paradise!
It's just Megan and I left in town. Chris and his dad left tonight for a fishing trip. We're a little lonely. We went to Blockbuster and rented a chick flick but we're way too tired to watch it tonight. Tomorrow we are going to have a girly day! I'm in mom and dads bed right now with Maddie, Mia and Riley on the bed with me. Here comes Megan.

Good night world.

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…
