A little bit of sunshine

This past weekend is just what we needed.
Sunshine.Family.Church.Friends

We headed down to the beach on Saturday afternoon
 and picked up grandma and grandpa on the way.
It was a gorgeous day at the beach and a bit cooler than it was at home.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Wilma's on Balboa Island
took long walks on the island
 it was so fun having grandpa and grandma join us
 Kate was thrilled to be back in the sand.
People on the island are so nice.
We needed to wash Kate up and a sweet couple
 had us come in to clean her up in their bathroom
 it was so gorgeous..
as always
 Sunday was Ava's first birthday party.
It was beautiful but a little on the hot side

 Is she not the most precious thing you've ever seen?!


Ahhh, I love the weekends
 They refuel my soul.
 So thankful & so blessed to have the friends & family by our side.
Feeling extra blessed and loved today.

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!
