new year, new you?

So with a new year just around the corner, resolutions are being made all around the world. To be honest, I've never made a new years resolution. What's the point? Why wait until the 1st of the year to start living a healthy lifestyle? There is one thing that I do at the beginning of the year every year and that is clean out my closet. I do this like 4 times a year but I really get ruthless in January. I guess because I've gone through the whole year and if there is something that I haven't worn all year then its out the door. This year is a whole new story. As y'all know I gave birth almost 3 months ago and well some parts of my wardrobe don't fit me like they did a year ago. Bummer. I have about $1,000 worth in jeans that no longer fit. Guess I should have held off on indulging until I was done having babes. (lesson learned) I can get the jeans on, they just wont button. (that's a problem) And I thought I had wide hips before Kate! Oh well, I'll give it a couple months and if they still don't fit then someone is going to hit the jackpot with my collection. Any takers? I'm sure my sister will be all over it. While I'm on the topic of Kate and cleaning out my closet...I went through her closet today and packed up a bunch of her 0-3 month clothes. SO sad! I can't believe how fast she is growing up!! ((Sigh)) I had to go to Target and buy a bunch of the plastic bins for her clothes. We are obviously saving them in case we have another girl one day. They are far too precious to let go. Chris and I were talking last night about how we would love to put the brakes on life right now. We are loving this stage that we're in. It's amazing. I know it's only going to get better from here but right now, our hearts are content. That is one heck of a good feeling. 2010 is going to be a great year. We have some fabulous plans and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store! I guess it's time we start working on our "bucket list". So back to resolutions....anyone have any? Let's hear em!

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
