It was a great week at the Andrews abode. We accomplished a ton! As far as the nursery goes, there was progress! All of the molding in the room was painted along with the doors and the walls are now pink! It's pretty darn cute. Crown molding got postponed until Monday morning which threw off our plans but it's ok. The plantation shutters have been ordered and all of the bedding arrives next week! You could say that we're pretty excited. I can hardly wait to put all the furniture in next week! (Check Kate's blog for pics and updates on her room!- if you need the link, email me!)The days seem to be flying by and we know that our little pumpkin will be in our arms before we know it. 3.5 more months!! Yesterday was the day that our first baby girl was due. It was bittersweet. Bitter because the loss of her was so hard to go through and knowing that she would be in ours arms now hurts but it was so so sweet because her sister is growing so big and strong inside me. The Lord's timing is perfect and that holds true in this case. The arrival of our Kate could not be more perfect. We are thankful! We are counting our blessings each and every day. Thank you to all of you who have been so sweet to call, email, etc. us with your sweet words of encouragement and joy for us. It means so much, thank you! We're looking forward to a nice and quiet weekend....can't wait to celebrate our dads and the new daddy to be! :)

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…
