This post is dumb

If you don't want to waste your time then stop reading now. I just wanted to share my day with y'all. The 3 of us woke up at 8:36am this morning! Yeah! Well until I realized that it was 8:36 and we had to leave the house by 9am to make it to church on time. I refuse to be the new mom who flys into church late looking like a mess with a baby in jammies. Not going to fly. So Chris and I jump out of bed, get Kate up, give her a bowl of her morning cereal, take turn taking showers and getting ready. Chris got Kate dressed and while I was brushing my teeth like a mad woman I looked at myself and knew something wasn't right. I stared at myself and realized that my sweater was INSIDE OUT! Thank God I realized it before I sat down in church. We were all ready and in the car and pulling out of the driveway by 9:03am. YES! We did it. Chris then calmly asked if I would like to go get coffee. "Coffee?? Are you crazy, I hardly had time to put my shoes on!" He THEN said with a smile on his face "baby, church doesn't start until 10". (another smile). Why he so kindly reminded me that as we were pulling out of the driveway totally tired and out of breath is beyond me. I smiled and laughed, of course it's 10, we would never make it in time if it was 9:30. Church was wonderful. We got the best seat in the house since we were there so dang early. (((Fast forwarding...))) I'm at Sprouts with my mom and sister this afternoon doing some grocery shopping and we're in the pre-made dinner section. My mom looks down and sees these turkey dinners. This lady next to her says "oh yeah, these are the best!" My mom then tells her that they are on sale and that is when all crazy broke lose. The lady was shoving every single turkey dinner in her cart like they were hundred dollar bills. My mom says "are you going to take them all?" She managed to grab 2. This lady (my moms new BFF) then looks at her and asks her "do you drive a chevy?" <my mom > "what?" <the lady> "you look like you would drive a chevy" <my mom> "no, I don't drive a chevy." <the lady> "well you look like you would" My mom then starts to get really annoyed with this lady and says "I don't drive a Chevy, I drive a Mercedes!" The lady then says " well I have a thorough bred and that is waaaaay better than a Mercedes!" At this point I am laughing so hard out loud at my mom and this crazy woman. I said "really??, are you serious lady??" My mom was so annoyed and looked back at the chick saying "you're just rude!" We laughed all the way to the check out stand and then came the lady (and all her turkey dinner and bags of huge carrots for her thorough bred). She told the worker that there are no more turkey dinners and had him go look for some in the back. I kid you not, it was the funnies thing I've seen/heard in a long time. My mom and sister then decided to ditch me in the parking lot by speed racing back to the car while I lagged behind because I was wearing my nail salon sandals (it had just poured rain) and I was still wearing them from my pedicure I just had (best part about my day).......ahh so after this long and crazy day I am finally sitting in my comfy chair wrapped tight in my blanket writing out this dumb story while my husband and baby girl are crashed on the couch. Something is wrong with this day...

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…
