Mr. Mom

My husband played a fabulous role of Mr. Mom tonight. I had a much needed night off from cooking and cleaning. Chris cooked, BBQ and slaved away in the kitchen while I lounged on the couch and caught up on all the latest LA gossip reading People Magazine and the babe slept.
Before I knew it jazz music was filling our house, candles were lit and I was ushered to our backyard for an amazing Italian dinner surrounded by pretty amazing people. My husband and baby girl, of course. Chris made delicious pasta topped with fresh grilled lobster tails and had cheese rolls to dip in balsamic vinegar and oil. Our Italian dinner would not have been complete without our glasses of wine.
Kate loves the outdoors. She cries when we bring her back inside. She is loving these warm summer nights when we bring her high chair outside and enjoy sweet family time over dinner. We played peek-a-boo while daddy cleaned the kitchen and washed the dishes. It was heavenly. So thankful for a night off from the kitchen. It's time I sign off and head back to my $4 glass of wine and bathe our baby girl....

I have to say, I am sort of jealous... no totally jealous! Sounds like a lovely night. Enjoy your husband Nikki!! Relish every moment. I can not wait for a beautiful summer evening to enjoy dinner as a family, even if i have to cook and clean! =)

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…
