Oh Baby Andrews

Let me start off by saying that all the prayers worked!!!! The little one had the legs open during the whole ultrasound! I was so thrilled! I was sure we were going to walk out of that place knowing we are having a baby boy or a baby girl! We all stared at the screen trying to put the parts together and figure out what we were looking at. 98% of the time when we had "the shot" there was nothing to see. We all said girl and the tech even said girl. The at the end she said ok "it looks like you're having a boy!" The room went quiet! Not that we weren't excited, we were all shocked. I was bummed because none of us are convinced either way. Trust me we are going to be thrilled either way, we just want to be sure before all the shopping, planning and registering begins! I must admit that in a way the suspense of this is kind of fun. I know that the Lord is teaching me something through this. He knows that I'm a planner and for some reason I'm not supposed to be planning yet! I don't know what it is, but this morning was great. It was so fun to have our family there with us. In a way not knowing is nice because it just means we get more ultrasounds, I already have a book going! In case you are wondering we are going back next friday to try again. It's our free one so maybe that will be the day! We'll see! Baby Andrews was moving all around today...showing off and doing summer saults! So cute!! We got another dvd, I think this child has more time on tape and more pictures than I have when I was a baby! Thanks for praying, at least it looks like we have a healthy baby and thats all we can ask for. We're so thankful. Maybe we'll have an update next week! :)

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…
