Valentines Day

Chris and I usually go away for Valentines. This year we had a "staycation".... stayed home and spent lots of money on the house and enjoyed our little valentine who was the size of a sweet pea last Valentines! It was a beautiful day. The weather could not have been more perfect! It started out with packing up the babe in the car to run my errands only to find that once she was all buckled in, my car was dead. Awesome. No errands for us. So, I decided to take her for a walk and spent time praying for patience. The boys finished tiling the bathroom and it looks beautiful! I am so happy with how it turned out. While the boys were working on the bathroom my sister came up and took me out shopping (since I was car-less) and I bought myself an awesome Valentines present...a new huge family room rug. It's so awesome and totally completes the room. Well sort of. I have a couple more things planned for the room but the rug was a huge improvement!!! I sold the old one on craigslist. Whew. We spent so much money this weekend. Our little cottage is definitely a money pit but we plan on being here a while so we are doing everything really nice. Our Valentines dinner was yummy, we ate in our new family room while my parents sat with us and entertained Kate. Talk about romantic! :) We're going out this week for a much needed date night. We are so tired right now, I can hardly type. It's been such a long weekend but SO productive. I'll post pics when everything is done... Happy Valentines loved ones....hope you felt loved today! xo

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…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
