Slacker

Sorry I haven't been the best blogger lately. My mom so kindly reminded me last night that my blog is starting to get boring and that I'm slacking off. I can assure you that I have a good excuse for my absence. Ok so maybe I don't but there hasn't been much to blog about and when I blog about nothing you get a boring post like this one. I'll fill you in on our life this past week. I am now in my 29th week of pregnancy (that is some exciting news folks!) You know how pregnant women are referred to as being ovens?? Yes, cooking those cute little buns makes you feel like the oven is on at 500 all day long!! And I have the joy of cooking a little bun in the middle of summer. Needless to say our air conditioner is my best friend these days. We actually have a love/hate relationship right now because every time the air comes on (which is like every 15 min) a loud horn sound also comes on. We can't figure it out so the air conditioning man is coming out on friday morning to fix it for us. Praise God!! The dumbest things drive me crazy these days and that sound is one of them! Other exciting things that have been going on in our life.... we now have every single door in this house replaced and hung. I can't tell you how happy that makes me. It is so nice to have a master bathroom door. Now I can lock Riley out and take a shower in peace. Onto some more highlights.... we got to see Kate twice this past week. We did the 4D ultrasound and let me just tell you that there are no words to describe how cool it was. Even though Kate hid behind her little hands almost the entire time we were able to see her lips, cheeks and nose. I know I am biased with being her mom and all but honestly people, she is the cutest thing we have ever laid eyes on. We are already so proud. I posted a few pics on her blog. I think I starred at them all day today, I can't get enough. In other exciting news, Chris has his really big review tomorrow at the firm. Eeeek!! I'm praying so hard for him. I know that it's going to go well... we're excited to see what it will bring! Not that I'm counting down or anything but I only have 3 more weeks left of work and then I am an official full time stay at home wife...soon to be mom!! Last but not least we are counting down the days until we take off to paradise.....5 days from now we will be soaking in the beautiful Hawaiian sunshine in Maui. Can hardly wait. So much to look forward to and more so....so much to be thankful for!!! (If you made it though this whole post, God bless you) I promise they will get more exciting...hopefully!

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…
