6 months

Kate Marie is 6 months old today. 6 months of amazing love. This journey that we are on keeps on getting better. Every day is a joy with Kate. She is the definition of a happy baby. Full of smiles, laughs, coos, chatters and sounds only a baby could make. Kate is rolling around like it's nobodies business, getting better at sitting up but not quite there, still working on her first tooth, eating fruits and veggies, soldier scoots and being a busy little one. She gets her hands on anything she can. She takes awesome naps. Loves to shop. Loves to eat. Loves to snuggle. Shes the only one who can make our heart melt in a second. A huge praise is that her blood tumor is shrinking! Yeah! It has not opened up since February and we are confident that we are past that. It is still swollen but not nearly as bad as it was. So thankful. Kate wakes up smiling and squealing with joy. I can be dead dog tired and still run to her room with so much excitement to pick her up and snuggle with her in the morning. There really is nothing better. Chris and I are madly in love with this little one and don't know how we ever lived life without her. Happy half birthday baby girl!! Now...it's time to start planning the big party!!!

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…

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…
