days 11-15 of thanks

I am thankful for....

11. Our Soldiers. I am so thankful for every man and woman who have gone before us and are out there now fighting for us day in and day out to protect our freedom. They are priceless.


12. Dear friends. I am so thankful for my incredible circle of friends. The ones who have been there through thick and through thin. The ones I may not see for a while but when we catch up it's like we haven't missed a beat. They're pretty awesome.


13. Vacations. I am thankful that we have had the opportunity to do so much traveling and that we have vacations to look forward to. They are a breath of fresh air and we realize that they are a gift.


14. Joy. I am thankful that the Lord has filled my heart with so much joy! My heart is happy and I am thankful that He has protected it and filled it with His goodness!


15. Answered Prayers. I am thankful that I have witnessed so many prayers that we have prayed so long and hard for answered before my very eyes. It is incredible and truly does bring the greatest joy when you see them come to fruition.

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! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
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. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
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. ๐Ÿ˜ญI'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. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผ‍♀️ #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…

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.
