Fro Bow

This is embarrassing. Really. I know that I have been blessed with extra thick hair and I will bet anyone $500 that I will never go bauld. Great right? BUT I hate it. I've never been a fan of my hair. It's horrible. Gross. Too big. Boring. Yadda yadda yadda. It's curly, crimpy, coarse, nasty... Obviously, I don't like it. The only thing I do like and appreciate about my hair is the color. I have never colored, bleached or died it. It is all natural baby. When I was in elementary school I was nick named "fro bow". It was never a bad thing, all of my friends named me that. (hmmm, maybe they weren't really my friends??? haha) I had a fro and my mom made me a bow to go with every single outfit I owned. Not kidding. They weren't you average cute little bow...no, they were big. Perfect for a fro. When I get a chance I will go back and find a picture and post those beauties for all of you to swoon over. When I was a senior in high school I got my hair chemically straightened. Best thing ever invented since whipped cream. It lasted for about a year and I continued to do it until we got married. (I'm convinced that Chris would have never taken a second look at me if my hair was how it is today). Ever since getting pregnant and giving birth my hair has changed. And not for the good... It is either in a bun or a pony tail every single day. I am finally going to bite the bullet and get the "Japanese" hair straightening done this Thursday!!!! Hallelujah!!!!! I won't go into details of how much this is costing my husband but it will be oh so worth it. He's pretty excited. I can't even tell you how excited I am. I'm literally counting down the hours until Thursday. It will take at least 4 hours and I will walk out of that salon feeling like a new woman. If only I could walk out of there 10 pounds lighter and toned too. Darn! Ok, so here are a couple pics that were taken this morning of my hair and what it looks like when I get out of the shower. I don't have enough guts to show you what it looks like dry, sorry! It even scares me... So here is the before shot. Stay tuned for the "after" one coming this Thursday! Yeah baby!!!

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…
