Mother's Day weekend

We had such a great weekend. Saturday was a little crazy but we got to pick up all the furniture for our daughters room! It was so exciting! We are no where near being ready to set it up yet but hopefully next month we can move it in! Can't wait! Mothers day was wonderful. Chris and I celebrated...he was so sweet and made me heart shaped pancakes in bed with my favorite coconut syrup from Hawaii. He washed my car and helped me run some errands. We spent the afternoon and evening at my parents house with the whole family. It was the most relaxing day we've had in a while. Played in the pool for hours and kicked our feet up, not to mention a fabulous dinner! We had dessert with Chris' family and spent the later part of the evening with them. I am so thankful for the family that the Lord has blessed us with. My parents spoiled me (or should I say Kate) and bought her a darling outfit and a couple of books and my auntie came over and brought over a whole bag of gooshie pink goodies for our baby girl. I'll post pics on Kate's blog. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It means so much and your excitement and joy for us has made our cup overflow with gladness. Pray you all had a blessed day. Thank you Lord for my mom and Chris' mom. I pray that I will be half the mom that my mom is to me. Her love, joy, generosity and faith is what I hope to have for Kate.

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…
