Fathers Day weekend

We kicked Father's Day weekend off with a mouth watering dinner to celebrate the amazing dad that Chris is to our Kate. AND, Kate napped the entire time we ate...almost felt like we were on a date :)

Saturday was spent at Chris' parents house. We worked in their front yard all day. 8am-5pm! Everyone worked so hard and at the end of the day their front yard looked totally different! No more dirt, there were beautiful flowers, lots of them! We had a lot of fun serving them and beautifying their yard. I wish I had taken pictures, my hands were a little dirty!

Sunday morning we woke up extremely sore from our labor but Kate and I got up around 8 to make dada breakfast in bed. She is the best little helper. Cheering me on with smiles and coos. I can't wait until she can pull up a chair and help me cook.

We lounged around the house all morning which was wonderful and headed over to Mimi and Papas house after lunch to celebrate my daddy and grandpa. We spent the afternoon by the pool, in the pool and celebrated over an awesome BBQ in the backyard.

Quick flashback
Fathers Day 2009
5 months pregnant
And here we are a year later with our 8 month old baby girl!
I count myself blessed to have a grandpa who loves the Lord and his family with all his heart, to have a father who is an excellent picture of what God intended a father to be, a father in law who is so kind and giving and a husband who is Godly and loves and serves his family. He is the best dada to Kate and will be to the rest of our future kiddos. Thank you to all the dads out there for all you do, most of all for loving your family.

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! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
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. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
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. ๐Ÿ˜ญI'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. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผ‍♀️ #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…
