Happy Halloween

Hate is a strong word but I really do hate halloween. I loved it the first 12 years of my life. What fat kid wouldn't? Dress up like a cow and get free candy. I so wish I could some how get my pictures of me being a cow, nurse, tigger and Lord knows what else I was and put them on here for your entertainment. Maybe that's why I hate halloween so much now. Anyways, I am a total scrooge when it comes to it and tonight we turned off our porch light and shut the blinds. Part of me felt really bad because there were some adorable kids walking around but I just want nothing to do with the stupid holiday. I kept peeking though and looking at all the little munchkins.
Instead of celebrating halloween, we celebrated our anniversary! Or tried to at least! I made a yummy steak dinner and pulled out our wedding cake. We had a nice candle lit dinner and thanked God for the door bell not ringing once! The cake...not so good. Tasted like freezer. Yuck! We were totally grossed out and instead of wedding cake we had a glass of egg nog. Not bad. Advice to those getting married and those newly married: eat your cake in the first 6 months!! We spent the rest of the evening playing games and talking about what this next year might have in store for us. Praying for a little one!!!
Hope you've all had a safe and happy day!

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…
