We're here!

Back home in Tennessee. This place really does feel like home. There is nothing like flying over Tennessee, all you see are green trees, wide open spaces and awesome homes. We had a good morning. Kate decided she wanted to wake up around 4:30am. Pretty sure she heard us getting things ready when we got up at 4am! She was awake until take off at 7:30am and crashed for about 45 minutes. She did so well on the flight to Texas. Such a sigh of relief. You never know how they are going to respond but she was perfect.
We enjoyed lunch in Texas and got on our connecting flight to Nashville. We waited and waited and waited and finally the captain came on and said that there would be no departures due to a cell that was coming to the right of our plane. I looked out the window and all you could see was black sky. Not the most comforting thing by any means. We waited for an hour and finally took off.

Kate slept the ENTIRE flight! Amazing. My arms and booty are still numb from not moving but it was worth it. She is an amazing little traveler.


Flying in over TN. Not the best shot as I had a baby in one arm.
I can't tell you how much this sign at baggage claim warms my heart. I feel like I'm home!
I wish I had pictures from the rest of our evening. We were greeted at the house by John, Brandon, Jen and of course Cocoa (best dog ever). We enjoyed dinner at Cancun. By far the best Mexican food any of us have ever had. Mmmm mmm mmm!! Came back home to the tiki torches lit, fire flies lighting up the backyard, and soaking in every single second. This is paradise. I love it here. I love everything about this place. Ok, maybe not....the bugs are ridiculous but I can tell you that my heart is about to burst with joy. We have an awesome weekend planned, can't wait...

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!
