No title needed..

You are all going to be happy to hear that my insane craving for the Orange County Fair has been fulfilled! Last night Chris, mom, dad, megan, libby and I packed up and finally went! And the best part...we got in FREE! I read somewhere that if each person brought 5 canned goods on Wednesday night then you got free admission. It saved us $60! I love finding deals...plus we got to help out the less fortunate! Ok, so the fair was wonderful. It's been on my mind since February and it was everything that I was hoping it would be and even a little bit better. We got there around 4pm, there was hardly anyone there! Dinner was beef brisket and waffle fries, so good! We did some walking around to all the shops or vendors. The workers are a little creepy. If you show any bit of interest in their items they pounce on you. (not literally but it felt like it) After lots of walking we got our funnel cakes (so good!) and then got seats for the hypnotist show. We go every year for this show....it is absolutely hilarious and I could watch it over and over. I laughed so hard last night that it was hard to catch my breath. I was still laughing once it was over. I'm sure I embarrassed my family a little by my gut wrenching laugh but I could not help it. It is a must see show! After that was over we did some more walking around. I got a snow cone and then went to the petting zoo. So fun. So many baby pigs, goats lambs. I just wanted to sit and play with them. I'm sure you're grossed out that I ate a beef brisket (only half!), waffle fries, funnel cake (only half!) and a snow cone but I assure you I was probably one of the "healthier" ones last night. You cannot believe the kind of food that the fair sells....and people buy!! Deep fried twinkies pickles, cheesecake, frog legs, snickers...the latest one we saw was Chocolate covered bacon. Really? Who in their right mind comes up with these things? I'm sure if I had a stand there and sold my big left toe deep fried, it would sell! Not kidding. It is very entertaining people watching at the fair. I felt pretty good about myself last night. Well that is all. It feels so good to have my craving quenched...but we will be back!
Oh. and PS. Kate loved the fair. She was dancing around the whole time. Can't wait to take her next year and share my funnel cake with her! :)

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…
