flowers...dirt & such..






My green thumb got the best of me this weekend. I tore out old flowers that were done with their blooming season and planted fresh new ones for summer. There is something so peaceful about spending time in the garden. We tore out 3 big plants that were in the front yard & replaced them with lavender and a couple other beautiful plants that smell delicious! I'll post pictures when they start to bloom & take off.


Speaking of taking off, check out our fresh herbs.
We are growing cilantro, rosemary & garlic onions.

I love this and am so excited to finally be able to use them in our dinners this week! They sit right outside the kitchen window, so fun to watch them grow!

After the gardening was done, I spent time washing all the windows. It's amazing how gross they get after fall & winter. I try to wash the windows two times a year to keep them in good shape. Want to know my secret to streak & water spot free windows?

Yep, Distilled white vinegar. Pour some either on paper towels or a cotton towel and wash away. Our windows are sparkling like they are brand new again. You might want to wear rubber gloves because the vinegar is a bit strong and can leave you smelling not so pretty.

That is about it for now. It was a beautiful weekend. Aside from all our work around the house, we celebrated my Uncle Steve's 60th birthday last night with 34 other family members and friends. It was an awesome evening filled with the most delicious food. My aunt is an amazing cook.

Hope you all had a blissful weekend.

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…

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
