Ohhhh Spa Laaa Laaa

Today was amazing. (period) That's the only word for it. We got up at 6am (not so amazing), put on our sweats then went and got coffee and headed down to the Montage Resort in Laguna. Chris had a meeting for work there today. I dropped him off and spent the morning and early afternoon with grandma and grandpa. We had a yummy breakfast, went Christmas shopping and came back for lunch. Then I was off to the Montage! His work is..amazing. There are so many perks with working at a small firm. They provided such a beautiful day for everyone. Including breakfast, lunch and a massage at the resort. My sweet husband donated his massage to me, totally surprised me. After his boss heard how sweet he was to do that for me they gave him 2 massages so he got to get one too! We spent 5 hours at the spa. It is a very special place to us as that is where we got engaged! I totally relived that day and wished Jess was with me again. The girls remembered me and treated me like a celebrity, I'm not kidding. It was hilarious and oh so fun! We are apparently the only couple who has ever gotten engaged at their spa. Awesome! They were going crazy over Chris, thinking he is too good to be true after all he has done for me. But it's true, he is the best husband God created! :) I got to meet my lady again who did my massage as Chris proposed. They gave us champagne and took pictures of us. It was the most peaceful afternoon/evening that I have ever experienced.
Oh and the best part was I met Chris' boss and all of his co-workers in my robe right after my massage. What a great first impression. Greasy hair, smushed face, jell-o legs. It's definitely a small and intimate office. Love them all. So thankful for his new job!!! The Lord's timing is PERFECT, don't you ever forget that...

we're a little relaxed, can you tell?

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…
