our day

Today was beautiful. in. every. way. Kate did really well with the time change. She slept for 8 hours straight, ate and went back to sleep for 3 more hours. Us girls got up around 10 this morning and the dada didn't get up until a little after noon. That's right, twelve o'clock. Must be nice huh? He needed it and it was well deserved. He works so hard for our little family and needed those extra couple of hours. Since we totally missed breakfast we skipped right to lunch and enjoyed it in the backyard over yummy carmel mocha's. Those will make anyone feel better, right? After lunch we packed up the car and drove all of 4 minutes to Yorba Regional Park. It was just what we needed. Fresh air. Sunshine. Blue Skies. The smell of BBQ. Exercise. Good conversations with my husband. A sweet nap for Kate. An all around good time! We had our own BBQ in the backyard this evening. Made the best burgers in town. You could say that we are ready for Spring and it's sunshine. Sad to say good bye to the weekend. It was so nice having Chris home with us. Kate and I have a lot of things coming up to keep us busy so that will help the time pass. It's time I log off the machine and go snuggle my loves. Chris is in bed feeding Kate and hearing him talk and sing to her is melting my heart. Sweet dreams y'all.

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…
