Cabo- day 7

Here we are, our last night in Cabo. (maybe) Today was actually beautiful despite the off and on cloud cover and little rain storms here and there. We spent the majority of the day at the resort on the beach and in the pool and went into town for a little bit in the afternoon. Did lots of window shopping and a little bit of buying. Came back to the resort for happy hour and also our afternoon chips and cheesy salsa! This is the life! We are so relaxed yet so tired! The sun has completely drained us. We got soo much color today it's insane. I have to take a picture of my husband tomorrow and post it. He is a lobster! Mine has already turned to tan. Thank God I got grandma Earla's skin! We spent the evening in the condo, made our own dinner, watched a little baseball (very disappointing!) and got to talk to my fam! (Thanks for calling mom!) Update on Hurricane Norbert: The storm is here! We are getting rain, very strong winds and 15 foot waves. It's quite a sight. The hurricane is supposed to hit land in about 5 hours so it will be very interesting waking up tomorrow. It's really sad talking to the locals, they are scared out of their mind. Warnings have been posted everywhere and a lot of places have evacuated. Stores are full with people stocking up on water and food, gas stations have long lines because people are getting the heck out of dodge, homes are being boarded up. Crazy! Never seen anything like it, thankfully! We're hoping to have a good report in the morning-we will know then what the status is on our flight. Keep praying.

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…

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…
