Family Traditions & Making memories

I've been wanting to get on here the past couple days but life as a mommy is keeping me quite busy.
 Last week went went to visit GG and Grandpa Great. We had such a great time at their house, took them a couple of meals and enjoyed a delicious lunch in their back yard. Kate was thrilled to see them again, it had been too long! It's a lift for everyone when Kate is around. Seeing the joy on my grandparents faces when they are with Kate is the sweetest sight. Kate loves GG's jewelry and glasses and loves when her grandpa great sings her songs and makes her giggle. We do cherish every visit with them.
he is so in love
Saturday was jam making day. It has been a family tradition for over 50 years and we are still carrying it on! We didn't make any last year so this year we made up for it. We did both strawberry and peach jam, 78 jars worth! Amazing. It's so much fun and really quite easy. Kate joined in on the tradition this year.
Well, more like played around the kitchen but next year we will have an extra helper on our hands!
Check out our girl in her own apron.
 Her mimi got it for her in Franklin, Tennessee.
 Precious or what?

Sunday night my little family went to celebrate my best friends 25th birthday.
 It was so much fun hanging out and catching up with my girls.
 Kate thought it was pretty cool too.

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!
