This made my heart smile

A couple months ago I put together a little weekend get away for my best girlfriends and I from high school, this past weekend it all came together! There are about 11 of us in all but only 7 were able to make this trip. I have been friends with these girls since I was 14 years old. Amazing.
We had an awesome weekend in Palm Desert, went back to the Marriott Villas where we went for our high school graduation trip, then the summer after and for my bachelorette weekend. We have made some awesome memories there and went back to make some more.
It was so good to reconnect with my girls. Crazy to see how we are all in such different places in life. That is what makes friendships so beautiful. How boring would it be if we were all doing the same thing.
I am definitely the mom of the group, always have been and always will be. That's ok with me. I will take care of and look out for these girls any day of the week. I am so thankful for the real friends that God has blessed me with (another post on that coming soon). I have really realized who is true and who isn't. Sad and beautiful at the same time.
I wish I had more pictures to share from our trip but I was so busy trying to savor every minute in the sun and with these girls so I slacked in the photography department..

Saying bye to my baby girl before driving off..




all of the girls.


Going to the club...
Told you I'm the mom of the group...


My momma brought Kate out on Sunday after my girlfriends left and we enjoyed 3 nights together. I don't think my mom and I have ever taken a trip together, just her and I. We had a blast. We shared delicious dinners, lunch and smoothies by the pool, scored in the shopping department (big time!), lounged by the pool, had laughing attacks and of course loved that precious little baby of mine...

I love the way she loves her dolly...

Beautiful summer night in the desert.

Thanks to all my girls and my momma for all the memories and love that we shared.
I am thankful for each one of you and so blessed to have you in my life...
Can't wait to do it all over again..
(smile)
Oh, and thank you to my husband who is so supportive and encourages me with get away with my girlfriends and do girly things. You are amazing. Thank you (and mimi & papa) for taking such great care of our girl while I was away...Such a good feeling <3

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!
