August already?!

It is hard to believe that summer is almost gone. I couldn't be more thrilled about that fact but in a way it's hard to believe. I got pregnant with Kate in the winter...been through spring, surviving the summer and shes arriving in the fall! Wow! We really are on the last leg of this journey! August is a very busy but very fun month for us. We are taking off tomorrow to Maui to meet my family there..we have been counting down to this trip for months! There are no words to describe how excited we are to get there! It will be our last hurrah before the peanut arrives... Don't worry, we already have 4 trips planned for next year. She will be quite the traveler as well! In other news, Chris had his review at the firm and......it went extremely well!!! I knew it would but it was better than we expected. Thank you Lord! It makes my heart so happy knowing that he is loved and cherished there. They are blessed to have him and we are blessed by that job. God's timing is so so perfect. I can hardly wait to be a stay at home mom and Chris is thrilled and so proud that he is able to support his little family (of all girls!) There is nothing in the world that I would rather be doing. It's so nice to be at a place of contentment. The world is always throwing things at you to make you want more and more and to be at a place where our hearts are happy and could not be more content is a blessing. It's amazing when we look back to where we were this time last year and where we are today. God's hand has never left us. We were both soo miserable in our jobs, money was so tight and the future seemed uncertain but, we trusted in the Lord and took that leap of Faith. He has definitely stretched us and is continuing to do so but sometimes those aches and pains are good to go through. They only make you stronger.
Now that I have totally gone off on a tangent I'm going to say Aloha for now, we'll see you in Maui!

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
