Praise the Lord!

First of all, thank you to everyone who prayed for us today. Yesterday was scary and to be honest totally had me freaked out. I didn't sleep well and this morning I couldn't do anything except sit on the bed and listen to worship music. It was the only thing that could calm my nerves. I got to the doctors office and went in right away for the ultrasound. I laid on the bed and closed my eyes and prayed. My nurse found baby Andrews right away and before I could say amen she said "I found the heartbeat!" I wanted to stand up right then and do my happy dance. I looked at the screen and there was our little one, floating around with a perfect heartbeat. We sat there and watched it for a little bit. The baby was showing off..kicking the legs and moving the arms all around. Coolest thing ever to see. Ahh such a sigh of relief. Also, baby Andrews arrival date got pushed up today, 4 days ahead of schedule! 7 more months and we will be holding this little one!! Can't believe it. I wish I had a better picture from today but this is the best one I got. Its really hard to make out everything but here is baby Andrews...now the size of a green olive! (I think this picture looks like a baby monkey, lets hope next weeks picture is better!)

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…

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..

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…
