I'm getting ready..

 As summer is winding down we are starting to prepare for fall.
 I love fall.
 I would love it even more if Southern California actually looked like this..

We're ready for those crisp fall nights
There is nothing better than putting on a good pair of sweats, cozy socks and sipping on hot chocolate before crawling into bed.
I love having the windows open on a fall afternoon with a football game on
Fall means that Thanksgiving is coming and that means good food and family, which I love.
Fall means I get to start dressing in jeans and sweatshirts
Fall will be extra special this year as we celebrate our baby girl's 1st birthday
Did I mention that I can hardly wait to snuggle her on a cool fall night while we sit by the fire in the back yard and roast s'mores?
I can't wait...
Baked apples, pumpkin pie, apple cider, fruit cobbler..
Our house will be smelling like a bakery this fall and I can't wait.
So, in preparation for fall  Kate and I took a trip to the nursery and bought our fall flowers
I dug out all the summer flowers that were dying and planted while my girl napped.
That was all after we played for hours and practiced walking
.. oh and crawling in our dirty clothes hamper to play..

    look mom! Dirty clothes!
Hurry up Fall! We can't wait for your arrival!


I love your pic of the Fall leaves....I wish we would actually have that :-( I am getting ready for Fall 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!
