I did something I said I would never do...

and bought Kate an exersaucer bouncy toy! Eeeek. I always said that we would never have one in our house and now I'm totally taking that back. I don't want our house to look like a day care with baby toys everywhere but I have realized that this is the phase in life that we are in. Probably for many more years actually and I love it. We have packed up several toys this week like the Bumbo chair, moses basket and fairyland. They are all wrapped up tightly in the rafters for the next babe. The big girl toys are coming out and we're loving it. Kate tried out her new toy today and thinks it's the coolest thing ever (aside from her kitten). Here's to a messy house, baby toys, burpies and paci's. Wouldn't have it any other way.




PS. I think I forgot to mention why I gave in and bought her this silly thing. Since she is out of her Bumbo chair I have nowhere for her to go while I get ready. I can put her in the swing but I feel like that will bore her, plus its on the other side of the house. She is sitting up like a champ now but not ready for her to sit on the wood floors since she still has the occasional face plants. That would not be good. This thing is great because we can move it too all the rooms in the house. She is having a blast in it, I will get it on video soon. Best $100 ever spent. And the swing too. I think I will do a post on the best baby items soon. We're learning lots!

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…
