can it really get better than this?

I know I talk a lot about life and how grand it is. Sure, we have our downs but I prefer to focus on the blessings that each day brings. Latly there have been many. Yesterday was beautiful in every way. There is nothing that I love more than being able to stay home and raise Kate and take care of my sweet husband. There is nothing better than this. To share every minute with Kate, catch every smile and hear every squeal is what makes waking up every morning so exciting. We have been spending our days rolling over, reading, singing, praying, taking walks, running errands, playing at Disneyland, eating veggies (squash is her favorite), and taking lots and lots of naps. Our girl is a napper! She needs lots of sleep. Hmmm, I wonder who she gets that from! :) Yesterday she took a 2 hour and 45 minute nap. Amazing. I finally had to wake her up because I wanted to play and needed to run to Trader Joes to make a delicious dinner inspired by Paul Deen. Dinner ended up being wonderful and Kate was my little helper. She was on my hip while I whipped it together. I am so crazy about this little girl. Every day we fall more and more in love. Besides getting married, deciding to start a family was the best decision Chris and I have ever made. Our life was great before Kate but now it is so beautiful. We wouldn't change a single thing, not one. Not sure how life can get any better than this....

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!
