Happy 3rd of July!

Woke up to a beautiful morning in Nashville. Kate slept great last night. She's at the foot of the bed in her pack and play and when she woke up this morning she was staring right at us from her bed. Hilarious. I have the camera by my bed tonight to catch the shot in the morning.

We went to Puckett's for breakfast. I guarantee this place is unlike any other. It is a grocery store, a restaurant and a club. It's in a beautiful little town called "Liepers Fork" and you literally sit in the grocery store and eat a fantastic home made meal made to order. Kate had her first taste of Southern biscuits this morning.
I'd say that we had prime seating. Right next to the beer section. It was an experience y'all. I'm hooked. Totally loved it. The people here are so wonderful, I don't think I will ever get over how friendly they are around here. As you can tell this was a really classy place! :) Love it and recommend it if you ever are in town! (Don't let the ambiance fool you, their food is awesome!!)
We spent the afternoon lounging and swimming in the pool. All the boys went to buy fireworks while the girls stayed home and baked.
The boys grilled up some BBQ salmon, yum!!!
Fireworks and firecrackers were going off all day here at the house and all around town. Really quite exciting. I've never experienced something like this. My husband is in heaven. These boys were having the time of their lives tonight lighting up bugs and launching them on M80s, blowing up things in water bottles & scaring us girls to death!!!!! Pretty sure I am going to go into cardiac arrest this weekend! They did put on a nice show in the front yard tonight. We brought out the chairs and put them in the street while they lit off fireworks. Definitely felt like we were at Disneyland...here are a few shots..
Kate is amazing with the fireworks. They don't even phase her. She slept through them and hung out with us while they were lighting them off. She loved watching them blow up. A girl after her dada's heart.
As you can tell it was another great day...feel so blessed to be here and spend such sweet time with our family. Everyone is staying at the house tonight! It's a giant sleep over, 12 of us!!!  Sweet dreams from Nashville...

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! 🙌🏼
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…

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…
