No title tonight.

Oh my goodness, this has been quite a week! I was released from the hospital on Saturday afternoon. It felt so good coming home but part of me wished I had stayed an extra day to get even more rest in. I know that sounds funny but its so hard once you're home. It seems like there is always laundry to do, dishes to wash, phones to answer. Ahhh. I just want to sleep. We could not have gotten through this without my parents. They were our Godsend. They came to visit me in the hospital a couple times which was nice for me and it gave someone else for Chris to hang out with and go eat with. They went to our house while we were in the hospital and disinfected the whole place and got it clean before we came home. My mom made us a fabulous dinner for Saturday and Sunday night....ahh thank you! It gave us such a lift! So here we are.....home. I am getting better each day which is a praise and now my husband thinks he is coming down with the flu. Nooooo! I wanted to cry when he told me that this morning. Now he is a bit dramatic whenever he doesn't feel well and it takes a ton of patience on my part but we cannot have this, not right now. I want so bad to be able to take care of him but I'm just not there yet. I'm still recovering from being extremely ill, I'm exhausted and not to mention this 9 month belly of mine. I called the doctor first thing this morning and got him on Tamiflu. We are praying that it kicks in soon. Please join us in that prayer. We definitely can't get through this on our own. Even though this past week has sucked (to be totally honest) we do have much to be thankful for tonight. I am so thankful that we have such great insurance and we are able to get amazing care and prescriptions to help make us well. I am so thankful that Kate is doing well and that none of this has affected her. We were so worried about her. I am most thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who has been and is watching over us and taking care of our every need. He knows what we can handle and gives us the strength and endurance to climb each hill that is set before us. With that being said....we will continue to trust in Him and rest tonight knowing that He is in control. :)

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…
