Mothers Day

God has blessed me with an amazing mom. I don't have the words to tell you all how blessed I am. My mom is my rock, one of my dearest friends, she is solid, so giving, she has one of the most beautiful souls. If you know her, you know what I am talking about. It was great to spend some time with her yesterday and celebrate the amazing mom she is.

It was my first mothers day. It didn't turn out to what I had in my mind but that's ok. The joy I received was the love from Kate. We snuggled in bed which is my favorite. She laid her head on my tummy and watched her cartoons while Chris made breakfast. The rest of the day was not as peaceful. Not going to lie, I was bummed out. I was looking forward to one day of rest, having someone else make lunch, I just wanted to feel treasured. Don't get me wrong, I know that my husband loves me and treasures the wife and mom I am. The Lord reminded me last night of the treasure that I am to Him. That means more than anything.
I hope all my other momma friends had a great day that was filled with sweet blessings.
Being a mom is not an easy job. It's tough, exhausting, messy, self-less & expensive is the best, most rewarding and fulfilling job out there. No doubt.

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…

TwistShake Baby

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!
