4th of July

This is what we wake up to every morning.
This was particularly extra gooshie because she was in her 4th of July jammies..

John cooked everyone a huge country breakfast. It was awesome. So fun sitting around the table with the whole family. We  looked at houses and spent the afternoon and evening by the pool. The boys took apart fireworks and firecrackers and made their own. They're nutts. Fireworks were going off all day around here.
Chris and Brandon were on a mission to catch a wasp and blow it up. It was so entertaining. Brandon threw the football to stun it, Chris beat it 9 times with a sandal, got it out of the pool, taped it to an M90 and poof, he was gone. They were so proud. This was them practicing...I have an awesome video.

And now to the good stuff...

ended the day with dancing and fireworks in the backyard.
 I will never ever forget it.

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!
