rambling

Just a really quick update. I have the nesting bug really bad and I need to go finishing washing all my screens and windows while its cool out but just wanted to share that our daughters room is 95% done! Yippee! The plantation shutters were installed today and we are so thrilled with how they turned out! I sold the blinds that were in there on craigslist today and also sold my parents big screen tonight. I'm on a roll! This house is getting in ship shape! My belly is growing everyday and we are counting down the days until we get to meet this little girl! Exactly 2 months away. I'm getting a ton of braxton hicks a day and Kate is in the birthing position so I think it will be more like a month and a half away but we'll see what God has planned!
Chris and I got to meet the newest member on our block tonight. Our neighbors had a baby boy on Saturday night. Aiden is the sweetest little guy. Jen and I are going to have so much fun walking the babes once ours arrives! Ahh life is so good. We are so happy and thankful. Chris is getting ready to leave on a quick backpacking trip with my dad where they will be meeting up with Chris' dad and brother in law. They are really excited and I'm looking forward to my girls weekend! That's all the rambling I've got for time, time to do some window washin!
Oh, PS... I posted about our first lamaze class experience on Kate's blog...check it out.

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!
