my heart is going to burst!

So yesterday was my last day of working! Can't tell you how relieved and great I feel knowing that I have a few weeks to finish preparing for Kate's arrival. These next couple weeks are going to be a blast, have so many fun things planned and lots of rest to get caught up on! Anyway, yesterday was a great day in the Andrews household. As I said it was my last day of working, I got a ton of shopping done (household items, we are set until the new year!) and then I got a couple text messages from Chris with pictures of a big present. He called me a couple hours later to tell me that the firm took him out to celebrate his birthday and then they also threw him a surprise baby shower!!! I am still overwhelmed by all that they did for us, I really can't believe it. Chris came home (very proud) with a large pink basket that was FILLED with baby girl goodies! From clothes, bibs, diapers, wipes, books, laundry detergent toys, bottle cleaners, bath toys...you name it! AND...on top of that was a very very generous gift card to Babies R Us and another very generous American Express gift card (for us to use after Kate comes) and also a bag of Starbucks coffee to keep Chris awake during those night feedings :) What company does that these days? It was such a blessing. How do I even thank them? His job alone and the way they treat him is the biggest blessing in itself. (side note: I am going to be very honest) Just this past week I was arguing with God about doing something nice for someone. In my heart I wanted to buy this friend of mine a gift but then I kept going back and forth on if I should spend the money or not. My heart overruled my mind (thank God) and I bought the gift for my friend. It made me feel really good and I told the Lord that I was just going to trust Him. Well, let me tell you.. He has blessed us ten fold! It was such a great reminder to me last night. He always provides and I am so glad that I was able to bless someone this week (in a small way) because we have been completely blessed. Chris and I have been so amazed and overwhelmed by the love and support that has been shown to us with our baby girl on the way. We are so undeserving of this love...

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…
