3 months young.

I know this is a little late.... Kate turned 3 months old on January 7th. I don't know how in the world we already have a 3 month old. In a way it seems insane that we have a baby and in another way it seems like "of course she's 3 months, we feel like she's been in our lives forever". We truly can't imagine life without her. The joy and laughter she has filled our hearts and home with is indescribable. I'm sure I will say this every month but she is our greatest blessing ever! Every day she seems so much more mature than she was the day before and so much bigger. We love it! She is full of smiles, coos and screeches. So much fun!!! You have no clue how wonderful it is to wake up next to a beautiful baby who is smiling and cooing at you in the morning. Amazing. Her favorite thing these days seems to be her 'Fairyland Gym'....she lays in it a couple times a day and stares at herself in the mirror, pulls on fairy, yells at fairy, kicks her frog who plays music. It's so entertaining. I try to get things done around the house while she is playing it but sometimes all I can do is get in fairyland with her and crack up at how hilarious she is. Sometimes she cries if we take her out of it before she's done. A little dramatic. I tell her she gets that from her dada. Our little peanut loves shopping trips and going for walks. She is also starting to teeth which is oh so much fun! For those of you who have gone through this know what I mean. She is drooling a river and tries to cram her hands and anything she can get her hands on down her mouth. There is a top tooth and a bottom one on the way. Kate is growing like a weed and we are absolutely loving this age.
Here are a couple pictures from her 3 month "shoot" haha.




We love you Kate Marie

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…

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..
