getting ready...

I'm in full swing planning for my girls 1st birthday party. Today I took a big step and ordered her invitations.
Enough for over 100 people. Yikes!
The pressure is on!
Momma and I are going to order the tent, do a little cake testing and order a couple other fun surprises in the next couple of weeks.
 So excited.
We love parties y'all and our girl is getting nothing but the best.
The theme? There isn't really one.
 We're doing pastel polka dots. I want to save the Princess, tea party and fairy parties until shes bigger and actually knows what's going on..
 I am having soo much fun going around town and picking up all of Martha Stewart's items.
 This is going to be one girly girl party y'all!












Out little small town bakery who now has their own TV show on TLC called, "The Bakery Bunch" will be making Kate's cake. I'm creating a lot of hand made items which I'm really excited about and adding lots of personal touches. Can hardly wait for the party to get here....Until then I am cherishing that my little one is still 9 months old and trying to slow time down as best as I can..
Stay tuned for more party plans in the coming weeks!

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…

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! 🙌🏼
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. 😂😂😂
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…
