my new best friend

is this awesome sling. I finally pulled it out of the closet yesterday when Kate was being super needy. She did not want to swing or snuggle in her bed. She wanted to snuggle on me. Don't get me wrong, my favorite thing in the world is to snuggle with her but I can't sit on my butt all day. I got her all snuggly in the little kangaroo pouch and away we went around the house and did our chores. It was wonderful until I tried to wash my face. I couldn't bend over to wash the soap off my face or else I would have slammed her into the vanity so I took a wash cloth and cleaned myself up. I then attempted to put my face on (make-up) and realized I was also getting make up on her. So I had to stand side ways with my face turned away from her so none of it would drop on her. We did some laundry, cleaned the dishes and then Riley threw up. Seriously? As if trying to wash my face and put on my make up weren't challenging enough I now had to get on the floor and clean up this mess. I took Kate down with me and we did it. I can now do anything with her snuggled in her pouch on my stomach. Thing thing will be going grocery shopping with us, to church, you name it, it's there!...it is our new best friend!

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…

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…
