.Perfect Day.

We love Saturdays here in the Andrews cottage. It is the day we look forward to all week long. I crave having my husband home and Kate is all giggles and smiles when she wakes up and sees her dada. They already have such a special bond, it melts my heart. Saturdays are a bit different now with tax season in bloom. Dada spent the day at the firm so today was just Kate, the kitty and I. It's definitely going to take some time getting used to but we made the best of it today. The rain was pure bliss. There is nothing better than snuggling in a warm and cozy bed with a warm little snugly body next to you. There is also nothing better than the sweet little kisses that are made of slobber. Chris and I adore kisses from our Kate. She is so yummy, her smiles are so contagious. I can't get enough of her. We spent most of the afternoon in the glider in her room singing songs, praying and listening to the rain splash down on the window. As I sat there rocking her and holding her close it got me thinking about Heaven. How could it really be better than this? Seriously, life is so grand and Heaven is going to be better than this? It's going to be better than a trip to Maui? Sure is. It made my heart leap with giddiness. I can't even begin to imagine the glory and beauty that we are going to experience one day. My prayer as a momma is for our Kate to come to know and love and serve Jesus at a young age. Tears fill my eyes when I think about her accepting Jesus into her life and living a life that is pleasing to Him. We can hardly wait to hear her prayers, hear her sing songs to Jesus and to show others His love through her sweet spirit. So much to look forward to. But tonight, we are cherishing every second with our almost 5 month old. Soaking in every coo and squeal with joy, every grunt and groan. This is going too fast.

Precious little feet

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…
