Thanksgiving

was wonderful. It was such a beautiful day. A little on the warm side but beautiful nonetheless. We had a nice quiet morning, just the 3 of us. Thanked Jesus for our little peanut and enjoyed a peaceful morning. We spent the rest of the afternoon with the whole family at Chris' parents house. It was so wonderful having the whole family together. Dinner was absolutely delicious as were the drinks and desserts! It was our first year with not having to go from house to house, we stayed in one place the whole time with both of our families. We're looking forward to that being our new Thanksgiving tradition. So nice! A couple more things I am thankful for... Our baby's cry. As hard as it might be at times when it seems all she does is scream I am learning to be thankful for it. I have recently read of so many heartbreaking stories of people losing their little ones and her cry is a great reminder that she has air in those little strong lungs and is alive and well.. Another thing that seems so simple is so huge. For our full tummy's. Last night our tummies were so full and happy and I couldn't help but think of all the tummies that are hungry. I have never known what it feels like to be starving and my heart breaks for those who have that feeling day in and day out. We are counting our blessings...
Here are a couple pictures from yesterday....celebrating Kate's 1st Thanksgiving...

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…
