I've got the bug

Don't worry, no swine flu here. I've got the cleaning/nesting bug BAD! For those of you who know me (which is hopefully everyone who reads this blog) knows that I am close to if not the world's biggest clean freak. Well get this clean freak pregnant and watch out! Poor Chris doesn't know what is going on. I am cleaning everything, washing everything, organizing, throwing out, giving away, selling...etc. Whew. I don't think I've sat down once this past week. I have been so busy going though this house (which is pretty tidy already) and making it perfect. Perfect for our baby that is. On Monday night I took all of the hanging clothes out of Chris' closet and transferred them to his new closet (in the office). His old walk in closet is in Kate's room and we are tearing the whole thing out and are going to make it all built-ins. Last night we went through the rest of his clothes and got rid of 2 trash bags full and transferred the rest in his new organizational bins. So much work! We are going to tear the cabinets that are in there now out this weekend, then scrape the closet ceiling and paint it before the built ins and all her new clothes go in! And come next month...we're going to move out the furniture that is in the nursery and start getting it ready for our little girly girl! I can hardly wait!! I am such a planner and love to be organized. I'm ready! All of her furniture is in, we're picking it up on Saturday. We weren't going to order it until next month but the line that we love is changing so we ordered it. It's gorgeous. Can't wait to see it all put together! I can't believe that our little Kate is going to be here in 5 months! Holy cow!!

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…
