Lord, we are amazed...

This is how my day started.... waking up at 6am next to my husband of two years to the song "Amazed"...it's my favorite song and every time I hear it my eyes well up with tears. Today was no different. In fact the tears streamed down my face as I laid in bed listening to the words,"Lord, I'm amazed by you..." I can't even believe how full my life is and how much more complete it will be tomorrow. Chris and I talked about these past two years and I was literally at a loss for words. I honestly don't deserve all of this. The Lord has been so gracious. I have been a bit overwhelmed today as the birth of our daughter is literally hours away. I have been doing my best to cherish every second I have left of her in my tummy. It has been a great 9 months and to be honest, I am going to miss being pregnant. There is nothing better than feeling her kick, squirm and hiccup from within. I have loved carrying her everywhere with me. I know it will be 100x better when she is in our arms but I will miss the closeness that we have shared. I consider myself blessed to have had such a great pregnancy. I thank God everyday that He allowed me to carry this baby girl, His child that He has created perfect in His sight. I can't even begin to think about what she is going to look like, who's personality she will have, if she will get my out of control hair.... so exciting. Tonight our hearts are full of nothing but pure joy and we are so ready to meet this little one that we have prayed so long and hard for. Tomorrow will be one of the happiest days of our life as we wait to welcome Katelyn Marie Andrews into this world....please keep praying for us! She's on her way!! Ahhh!

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. 

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…

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…
