There is nothing like

ANSWERED PRAYER! Seriously, there isn't. When you labor in prayer over something and realize it has been answered. It's the best thing in the world. With very very grateful hearts tonight we are sooo thankful to announce that the cyst on Kate's brain is GONE! We are amazed and I'm still trying to soak it in. We knew that our prayers were going to be answered but I honestly didn't think it would be this soon. We have been filled with so much hope since day 1 with this pregnancy and if anything we have been filled with even more hope since we found out about the cyst. Before we went into the ultrasound today I got a call from a really great family friend, Aron. Our sweet friend from Africa (who I will blog about soon!). I told him that we were about to go in for the ultrasound and told him about the cyst. The first words out of his mouth were "Nikki, don't believe it. The enemy is a liar and he is trying to steal your joy! Don't believe it! She is perfect." It was so confirming to me. We walked into the ultrasound suite with confidence and joy. It was just a great experience. It lasted about 25 minutes, the tech measured everything and at the end I asked if she saw the cyst (we talked about everything she was looking for prior to the ultrasound) and she nodded her head no with a smile. She went back over the brain to show us that the cyst is gone! And it is!! Clean slate! It is an absolute miracle. The cyst was there on Friday, just 5 days ago but now it is gone! Her brain looks perfect. They say the earliest these cysts normally go away is 26 weeks and I am on week 20. Once again, a miracle. We don't have the official results from my doctor but this tech was fabulous and was very confident and tried her best to tell us that she looks great, not to worry. We are so relieved and just so thankful. Its overwhelming to think about. The God of the universe cares so much about us, He didn't want us to worry about this and be upset about it for another minute so He healed her. We are undeserving and so thankful. What a testimony it will be to tell Kate, we can't wait! It is so evident that the Lord is holding her in His hands and knitting her together perfectly! So, it is with VERY grateful hearts that we thank you. Thank you for standing firm with us and praying for this cyst to be gone. Prayer is amazing. God is real. Never ever under estimate the Lord and the power of prayer.
PS. I have posted the news pics of Kate on her blog, check them out...shes getting big!

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…
