Vegas part II

We are home sweet home from Vegas! It was a great weekend, so good to get away together but there is nothing like coming home!! Yesterday was super relaxing. We went to the Paris resort which was right next to our resort for breakfast and then did lots more walking around the strip. We spent a couple of hours walking to the different resorts and browsing the windows of the over priced fancy stores. Once our legs turned to jello so we went and lounged by the pool for a couple hours and then went back up for a nap. After my much needed 2 hour nap we went back to the Bellagio for an afternoon crepe. Let me just tell you, its a really good thing we don't have that chocolate shop anywhere around here. It was amazing!!! The largest chocolate fountain is there and it is the best chocolate you have ever tasted! We had a raspberry crepe with fresh whipped creme. I wanted to just park it there and try everything!!! What? I can't help it, the baby wanted it! ;) We once again did some more walking and got ready for dinner. I was super excited about dinner because we were meeting up with everyone from Chris' firm, including the two partners. We went to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville, wow that place is fun! Thought of my dad the whole time. The firm had 5 huge tables packed with employees and their family members. We had a blast. I had so much fun meeting his coworkers and getting to know them. I met his two boss' and love them! I instantly become BFF's with one of them, and they made it very clear how much they love Chris. I can't even begin to describe how much joy filled my heart last night. I couldn't (and still can't) stop thanking the Lord for blessing my husband with this job. Not only is it a way better environment for him and us to be in, the way they love and respect him and his hard work is what I have been waiting for. They cherish him! They even gave us a special little extra gift on top of the whole weekend that they treated us to! It was the perfect way to end our weekend away. We left after breakfast this morning, stopped at Victoria Gardens on the way for lunch and some shopping. We're home, clean and settled looking forward to a great week!!

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…
