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. 

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…

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…
