Palm Desert

I am very relaxed so this will most likely be short and sweet. The Parker/Andrews gang is out in Palm Desert (been here since thursday). We're having a blast and could not be more relaxed. Our days are spent by the pool (more like in the pool) with smoothies and yummy lunch delivered right to our chairs. We usually come back to our villa mid afternoon for showers, snacks and naps. Wonderful! We've had lots of good times and many laughs. So good for the soul. I really can't believe how much I am growing. My tummy seems to be sticking out farther everyday. Sometimes I forget how big I a until I walk by a mirror. Is that really me? Wow. The pounds seem to be packing on which I don't like at all but I just have to remember that its for a good cause and they WILL come off after the princess arrives. I am depressed at the fact that I no longer seem to have hips. They seemed to have disappeared. Where did they go? Hopefully I'll find them in a couple months. Oh well, I'm happy and couldn't be more content with where we're at right now. We have much to be thankful for. Here are a few pics from today... I've been terrible at taking pics so these will have to do...

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…
