Celebration

Yesterday was such a special day. I had no expectations and no plans except for lunch with my mom and dinner with my hubby. I had a nice quiet morning, made a nice breakfast, went grocery shopping, got lots of nice calls and waited for my mom to come and pick me up for lunch. We went to a new restaurant in Orange called "Prime Cut Cafe'" (which is so fabulous!)...and much to my surprise my mom had planned a surprise party for me. We walked to the back and saw 12 of my really close friends waiting for me. It was a complete surprise and really really lifted my spirits. We had the best time at lunch. I am so blessed with such incredible friends. The love I felt yesterday is indescribable. My mom treated us all to lunch and also had a delicious cake from Zovs for all of us. The Lord has blessed me with such amazing parents. The center piece at our table was a gorgeous flower arrangement that my daddy sent me. He is in New Jersey...so that was special. After lunch I snuck away by myself and got a pedicure then went to Maggianos with Chris for dinner. He took me on a little shopping spree then we went back to mom and dads for a little American Idol. It was one of my best birthdays yet. Thank you mom and dad for everything, thank you to my sweet friends who were so kind to think of me and call yesterday, and thank you Jesus for my amazing husband. 23 years down....lots more to go! (hopefully!)

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…
