We're here!!!

Oh my gosh, what an adventure we are on! It has been such a long day and quite eventful! We landed in Los Cabos around 5:15pm (4:15 cali time) and decided that we were going to get a rental car. Yes, we have NO clue where we are going but we decided that it would be cheaper and easier than getting taxis everywhere. We rented from National and got a new 2008 Honda. Seriously, it looks like it's a 1993. I have to take a picture of it tomorrow and show y'all our ride! It's awesome! We decided that we were going to go to the grocery store to stock up on food. (breakfast and lunch items). It's really hard to know what is ok and what is not ok for us so I decided to go with the names that were familiar. (dole, doritios, oscar meyer) We got some not so familiar named things too. Praying that they're yummy! It was so exciting to see how cheap things are!! Our total came to $588.00 pesos but really it was only $45 in dollars! Whew! So- here is the adventure part. I was trying to scram at the grocery store because I knew it was going to get dark soon. We were trying so hard to dig up that spanish we learned years ago...I need to dig a little deeper! Once we FINALLY got checked out and being stalked by a guy we got in our race car, busted open the doritios because we are starving! and tried to remember what road and direction the car rental guy told us to take. It's dark by the way. So we're driving along like maniacs and I'm praying the whole time. Chris took a wrong turn and we ended up going down a road that seriously we couldn't see the end to. There was nothing in sight but a policia. I've had a run in with them before and it's not fun! We quickly made a fast u-turn (im praying really loud) and Chris is laughing at me. We finally got on a road that sounded right pointing to Cabo San Lucas. After about a 15 minute drive we found our resort. Jesus seriously directed us here because it's completely dark and not many lights. As soon as we stepped onto the resort we were at peace. It was safe and there were Americans who speak our language!! The only thing I wanted while we were driving was an american cd. Theres a cd player in our pimped out car but who has cds anymore? Ok, so our resort is out of this world!!! We are right on the beach. Our condo is absolutely gorgeous! GORGEOUS! We have a huge master suite and a little kitchen with a huge bathroom, another full on beautiful kitchen, a really big family room and dining room and another bathroom along with a really big porch that overlooks the ocean. We so wish we could share this with our family. We totally could have all fit in this house! I will be sure to take pictures tomorrow and show you what I'm talking about.
I am so thankful we have a kitchen full of food. We're starving so we're going to go make some dinner (after Chris is done smoking his cigar). Dad, he wishes you were here to be his buddy.
That's it for now. We're here, we're safe and so excited!
Until tomorrow...
PS. Sorry if there are a lot of misspellings. The spell check doesn't work here. Everything is in spanish!
We love you.

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..

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…

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…
