As Thanksgiving draws near...

We have so much to be thankful for. It's awesome that there is one day a year that focuses on all our blessings but we really need to make it our lifestyle. There are so many negative things going on in this world, things that seem to creep into our lives. They seem to sometimes take over all of the good. Chris and I spend time every night thanking the Lord for ALL of the good. They aren't always big things....it's mainly the simple things that we seem to take for granted. So as Thanksgiving approaches, what are you thankful for?

Here is my short list...

- Jesus, for loving me just as I am.

- My husband. I could go on and on about how wonderful he is...

- Our daughter, Kate. She is too precious for words and has filled my heart with more love than I ever knew was possible.

- My family. Their love and support means more than they know

- Our home.

- The power of prayer.

- Jesus choosing to heal Kate. His healing hand has been upon her and we no longer need to see a surgeon. This is a miracle!

- That I get to stay home with Kate.

- Our true friends.

- The Lord always provides even though we don't deserve it.

- For Thanksgiving. A time to be with family and friends and reflect on of the blessings in our life!

.....now its your turn....

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…
