hard to believe

A year ago today the Lord took my Pops to be with Him in Heaven for eternity. I can't believe that it's already been a year. It's weird how life keeps going on and becomes the new normal. I can't believe its been a year since I have seen him and talked to him. I loved being able to pick up the phone and call my pops, if you were having a crappy day he was the one to call. Yes, even as he was laying there on his death bed he would pick up his cell phone and make you laugh. I miss that. I miss not being able to take care of him and massage his legs and feet with no toes and hearing him call me his "nurse angel". I could go on and on about the things I miss about my pops but the one thing that is hitting me hard is that he won't be there to see the birth of his first great grandchild. He loved being a grandpa and was the best and I know how he so couldn't wait to be a great grandpa. I pray that he will get a glimpse of it from Heaven. We will make sure our baby knows all about Pops, he was a special man and I feel so blessed that I got to call him grandpa for 22 years. Love you Pops and will miss you until the day we meet again in Heaven...

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…
