I had one awesome birthday week. It started on Tuesday with going to lunch with JP. One of my favorite people on this earth. She took Chris, Kate and I out. It was so fun to catch up and spend time with her. Wednesday I got my hair done and am feeling like a new woman! My parents took Chris and I out to dinner to one of my favorite restaurants around town, Wood Ranch. Mmmm! Thursday, my actual birthday was perfect. I got to sleep in and snuggle with the best birthday present EVER! My precious baby! She was all smiles and in a super snuggly mood. We packed up and went to lunch with my mom and dad to my new fav breakfast/lunch place, The Blue Frog. Seriously people, the most delish homemade food. We had a great time. Dad is now hooked. My mom took care of the babe and treated me to a pedicure and wonderful massage. It was soo relaxing. My husband picked me up and took me to Disneyland and went to the Blue Bayou for dinner. I know I talk about food all the time and my love for it but honestly this was the best dinner that we've had in a loooong time. So delish! Every bite. mmm mm mm! We had the sweetest waitress and excellent service. We were even able to sneak on a couple rides before heading home to pick up our princess. I could go on and on about my day but to put it simple: it was the best one yet. Kate definitely made it complete. I know that my life is blessed and it's times like these that I feel I don't deserve all of this love. It's overwhelming how full my heart is. I am happy and content. Not gonna lie, all of this partying with a 3 month old has worn me out. I am soo glad the weekend is here. Looking forward to sleeping in and snuggling as a family. Thank you to all who helped make my day so special. I appreciate it and thank you for your friendship.
Oh and my big birthday gift should be arriving in a few days....I can hardly wait!!!!

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..

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…
