Bathroom Remodel Part I

Do I even dare show you the "before" picture of our bathtub? It is so gross. I have disliked it since the day we found our house. It is the original fiberglass tub. Gross. Gross. Gross! Our house was bank owned and was on the market several months before we bought it. I would come over when we were in escrow and scrub this thing until I couldn't scrub anymore. The window had been left open while it was for sale and the poor tub was covered in things that should NEVER be in a home. Gross. It is the last original thing left in this home. We have been putting it off and putting it off but now it is time! There is no way our precious little one will ever step foot in that tub so after lots and lots of shopping and trying to figure out what we want to do in there....we are ready! We had everything all picked out until today when we found different tiles that we love even more. So now that we have it all picked out I of course decided that I want all new hardware, new paint color, new towels....oh my. It's going to be a big project and I can hardly wait to see what the outcome will be! So demo begins next weekend. The tub is coming out, the shower head will be raised, new dry wall and insulation will be put in, backer board goes up...oh my! I thought it might be fun to share the progress with y'all.
So here it is...our nasty bathtub

Have I mentioned how gross it is?

Don't you all try to come over at once for a bubble bath now! :)

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…
