Best Christmas EVER!

Chris and I have not stopped talking about this Christmas. It was all around the best one yet. It was so great spending time with the family and sharing the joy of our precious Kate. We spent Christmas Eve down in Newport at grandma and grandpas house. It was one that will go down in the books for sure. So memorable. We spent the night at mom and dads house that night as always which was a lot of fun. We all sat around in our new jammies and watched "Christmas Story" like we do every year. Who doesn't love family traditions? Christmas morning was beautiful. We all slept in a little bit and then enjoyed a delicious brunch with the whole family. Awesome! We opened the most wonderful gifts and had ourselves a merry little Christmas. Chris and I packed up the babe and we headed over to his parents house. We had a very yummy dinner, opened more great presents and made more marvelous memories with the family. His grandparents came down for Christmas and it was soo much fun having them here. They got to meet their 1st great grand baby which was so neat. They are just precious people. I have all I have ever wanted right under our little roof. A husband who loves and cherishes me and a baby girl who I could not love more. Our hearts are so full and we are feeling super blessed. I am pretty sure we enjoyed this Christmas so much more because it wasn't about the gifts under the tree. Sure, they were pretty fabulous but our hearts have been focused on the real reason of this beautiful season. Jesus! We are so thankful for Him, without Jesus there would have been nothing to celebrate, no CHRISTmas. Thank you Jesus for coming to this earth and giving your life for me! We pray you had yourself a merry little Christmas also...

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…
