yuck.barf.gross.blah.sick.help

Oh my. I can't even begin to describe the way I have been feeling because I might lose it (again). I have been nauseous on and off for about two weeks but it was tolerable. Yesterday morning I woke up with this terrible feeling in my stomach. It was like when you wake up starving and all you want to do is eat to ease the feeling. I thought that's what I was having so I cooked up 2 eggs and made a yummy egg sandwich and by the time it was all ready I couldn't even look at it. So, I cooked up some oatmeal and ate it quick. Chris was the lucky receiver of the egg sandwich. I hurried and got ready for church and then got back in bed. Somehow made it to church and at the end of the service my husband so kindly pointed out that I had put my shirt on inside out. Yes, it was that kind of day. Once we got home I got in my sweats and spent the rest of the day in bed. Chris was waiting on me like a sweetheart and when we came to see what I wanted for lunch i said "nothing!" I couldn't bare to think about food. I racked my mind and decided that egg salad sounded good so I told him to make it fast while it still sounded good. My sweet mom came up last night and rescued us. She made Chris a yummy Italian dinner while I laid in bed and covered my head to I couldn't smell the pasta cooking. She went to the store and bought me anything and everything under the sun that might sound good to me. So sweet. She understands what I am going through and has sympathy. Thank God! So she understood when she saw me under the sheets with my ears plugged because I can't stand to watch commercials that talk about and show food. There are WAY too many! You never realize it until you want to throw up at each one. I'm going to start counting how many times I have to hide and plug my ears a day, just to keep me entertained. Today was just as lovely, I spent the morning getting to know my toilet really well. Thank God I'm a clean freak. Right after I got sick, sweet little Riley then threw up. Awesome. To be honest, I didn't think I was going to get morning sickness. I get all the weird things so I should have known. Speaking of weird things, I have an ovarian cyst on the right side. Talk about painful. I have been going crazy the past couple months and they finally figured it out through my ultrasound. I don't want this rambling blog to come across as complaining because in all honesty I am thankful that I feel and look like crap. It means the babe is growing and that's all that matters. I went in for more blood today...hopefully for the last time! That's all for now...I need to go and search the fridge for something that sounds good. PS. just FYI, please don't mention Mexican food to me for the next couple months. I have a hard time even typing it. Not my friend. Ok, goodnight world. Please keep praying for us!

Have a popsicle. Feel better. Really cold water is nice too. Peace and blessings to you during this time.

try keeping some saltine crackers by your bed so before you even get out of bed eat one.

Hope it slows down in the 2nd trimester.

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..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

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…
