Pumpkin Pactch

Saturday afternoon we packed Kate up along with our neighbors and their little guy for the kids first trip to the pumpkin patch. I haven't been to a pumpkin patch since I was a kid and it was Chris' first time to one. We have an awesome patch just down the street from us. They have pony rides, petting zoo, tons of jump houses and games galore.
 Oh the fun we are going to have in the coming years..

Kate picked out her own little pumpkin
 Two pumpkins! She was so proud.
 Kate and Aiden were too small for everything at the patch except for the petting zoo.
 She is totally a girl after my own heart. Kate LOVES animals. She thought the petting zoo was the coolest thing ever. Well, if she could talk I know that's what she would have said. The look on her face as she was chasing around the ducks, chickens, goats and all the other critters was priceless. She made sure to pet every animal in there and I made sure to scrub her hands afterwards.
 Family shot.
 Our precious girl was so taken by all the big pumpkins surrounding her that she didn't realize she was sitting in a  pumpkin "hole".
She is so delicious!

 Our dear friends and neighbors who are having another baby and moving next month.
 I love the mouth

Kate was an absolute joy to take to the pumpkin patch. She had every ones eyes on here which seems to be the case where ever we go these days. The kid is hilarious. She is constant smiles and nothing but pure joy.
 I wish I got a picture of her trying to pick up a pumpkin 3x her size.
Love you pumpkin.

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…

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…
