Cabo, day 2

Sunday was what Sundays are supposed to be about, a day of rest! We slept in, had some breakfast and headed out to the pool. There were probably 5 people out there max. It is so quiet around here. We're at a huge Hilton resort and they say its only 40% occupied. Sweet! The pool is the best thing you've ever been in. It almost feels like a river, it winds around every corner and it's an infinity pool. So fun. We did that for a couple of hours, then went up to the condo for lunch and headed to downtown Los Cabos. We putted around here for a bit and I was ready to leave in the first 5 minutes of being there. We were at the marina and apparently there was some big carnival fiesta thing going on and the main event was the "cock fights". Let me tell you, worst thing ever! Such a terrible sound of those poor roosters. I dont like roosters but I felt so bad. I don't know if it was my motherly instincts coming out or what but I was terrified. The boys found the boat that they are going fishing on and we left. We then went to 2 different coves for snorkeling. We were just scoping out today....going back another day to actually snorkel. After all of that Chris and I went back to our pool and swam for a bit. We are already like jello. We both commented on how much we needed this rest. We've had so much on our hearts and minds this past month and so much work to do when we get home to prepare for our little bundle that we are so grateful for this week away. Thank you Lord! His timing is so perfect. We couldn't have picked a better week to get away but He knew we would need this break when we booked this trip 6 months ago. Once we all got cleaned up we hit the road to downtown Cabo. We were told to go to "Ponchos" for dinner. So glad we took the recommendation, it was fabulous!! It was an open air authentic mexican food restaurant and we were all very happy with our choices. Iwish I could insert scents into the blog so you could smell how wonderful it was. The smells were amazing! After dinner we walked around downtown for a bit, we're looking forward to coming back and hitting the beach there. We had a pretty mellow night. Came back to our condo and the boys got their fishing things together for their big adventure in the morning, we skyped with some family members (always fun!) Chris and I played skip-bo on our balcony and then it was time to hit the hay! Another day in paradise, another blessing from above...

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…
