Memorial Weekend

A long weekend! Yes!
A long weekend spent by the pool with good food, even better!
This is where we spend most of summer days. Right here.
My chair is the one with the pink bathing suit.
And those pups...the pool would not be complete without them.

A girl and her dada

We splashed in the pool with my grandpa on Memorial day.
I adore this man.
He is a saint.
He is a veteran of World War 2.
His story is awesome.
He is my hero.
The way he loves Kate is so beautiful.

We lounged by the pool with grandma.
Another precious soul.
You can't tell by this picture that Parkinson's & Alzheimer's is taking over her body.
Please be praying for her.

And then there is this little bundle.
She is amazing.
Check out her Dora the Explorer sunglasses.

Our little fishy. She adores the water like her dada.

Speaking of dada...
he is the best jungle gym ever.


The girls.

So much swimming and sunshine, we all laid on the grass and took a little rest.

Hello sweet summer of twenty ten. We are so glad you're here.
Can't wait to spend many more days by the pool...
spend time with those we love
& watch our precious love grow.

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!
