you got my attention.

Ok...so living in So Cal you would think that I would be used to earthquakes, right? WRONG! I am scared out of my big girl panties by them. I don't care the size, if I can feel it...it's scary. I guess the thing that is so scary about earthquakes is that we don't get a warning. Then the thoughts come...is another one coming? Will I be home alone when the next one happens. You get the point. I'm scared of them. So for my fellow Southern Californians who felt the earth movin and shakin at 4:04am this morning you can bet your bottom dollar that I was petrified in bed. What's crazy is last night Chris and I could not sleep. I was up until midnight tossing and turning (so I played words with my other restless friends) and Chris was awake until 3:30am. We NEVER do that. Just as I fell asleep and started having an awesome dream I was rudely woken up by a rumble and feeling like someone was under our house shaking it. Thankfully it was a 4.4 and no damaged occurred. 4.4 at 4:04am, weird. I shook Chris' arm and yelled "earthquake!" and snuggled close to make me feel secure. And then it got me thinking.. even though I was in my husbands arms I still didn't feel secure. Why? Because we aren't supposed to get all comfy and cozy here. This is not our home. This earth is just our temporary home, our cute little house is our temporary shelter, this ground will one day crumble into a billion pieces. Crazy. That little rock and roll action this morning was a good reminder to me. I would have preferred that reminder to come in non-scary way but it's reality. There's a Carried Underwood song that I am loving right now (y'all know I'm a country girl)...It's called "Temporary Home". How appropriate... here is the chorus

"This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms
that I'm passin' through
This is just a stop,
on the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know
this is my Temporary Home."

Sing it sister!! So, after all of that was brought to my mind I began to pray and my heart became really heavy. I felt the urge to pray for protection over this great land. I had a very strong feeling that I was to pray against the evil one. Not sure what it was about so I prayed about all the things that were on my heart. It was intense to say the least. Maybe I needed that little shake to get my heart into gear and ask the Lord to show me what to pray for and pray against. I am praying for protection over our country, please join me in that prayer.

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…
