whew!

I am feeling like a new woman tonight. My long list of "things to do before the babe arrives" is getting shorter! I won't even begin to bore you with what is on my list but let me tell you, it's long! Tonight I got to cross off a few big ones! #1. Our air conditioner was fixed yesterday. This is great news. It was making the most annoying sound in the world every time it turned on so I hated turning it on. Since I have my own built in personal heater it is not acceptable for the house to be warmer than 74 degrees so I was living with the sound....not anymore! :) #2. The Jeep now has new breaks, tires and the alignment has been fixed! This was totally weighing on my shoulders. It has to be safe and in perfect shape to tote the princess around in. #3. I finally made an appointment to go see my dermatologist. Thank you to all of you who have been nagging me to go in and have my sun spots looked at. I feel relieved knowing that I'll know soon if they are ok or not. #4. Made my appointment for my ultrasound next Wednesday, can hardly wait to see Kate again. We know that everything is fine so we're looking forward to getting some good news and one last sneak peak. #5. I only have 2 more days of work left. That's right people. 2! I am going to miss taking care of the kiddos but I am really looking forward to having a month of no work, no nothing! I will be doing all of my last minute nesting things next month. Oh, I can hardly wait!!!! That's it for now. I need to rest up for some more partying that is going to happen this weekend! :)

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…
