days 21-30 of thanks

I am thankful for...

21. My family. I have been blessed with an incredible family. My parents, my sister, grandparents, aunt, uncles, cousins and my in laws are all amazing people and I am so thankful that God put in the family that I'm in.

22. The rain. I am so thankful for the water that falls from the sky. It doesn't happen very often here in So Cal and when it does I always leave our bathroom window open a crack so I can hear it fall during the night. There is nothing more peaceful than the piter patters that the rain brings.

23. Weekends. I am thankful for our "re-fueling" time. We adore the weekends in this house. It's our family time. It's Kate's absolute favorite when her daddy gets her out of bed on a Saturday morning and brings her in our bed for snuggles and toons.

24. Traditions. I am thankful for traditions that we have with my family and traditions that we are creating as our little family. They make the greatest memories.

25. Thanksgiving. I am thankful for this day because it creates a season of giving thanks. When really we should be doing this 365  days instead of 30 days or for some, one day a year! Oh and I'm also thankful for the amazing food that Thanksgiving day brings!!

26. My dad is CANCER FREE! I am so grateful that my dad has beat cancer. It is so apparent that the Lord has His hand on my dad. We are amazed and soo thankful!!!

27. Adoption. I am thankful for the incredible selfless people who are able to put their baby in the arms of a stranger and trust that it is the best decision for all. I have been so touched recently by some beautiful stories of adoption. So amazing!

28. My husband. I am forever thankful for the Godly man that the Lord hand picked for me! He is everything and more I ever dreamed of and I am beyond blessed by him. I am so thankful that he loves me for better and for worse.

29. Peace. I am thankful for the peace that has filled my heart this past month. I have been wrestling with some things and the Lord has totally filled my heart with peace and I am resting in the fact that He is in control.

30. Kate. I am beyond thankful for this little 22 pound, blond hair, blue eyed baby girl that has captured my heart in a way no one else ever has. My love for her grows and grows everyday. She is the greatest joy in our life.

Phew. That is it folks. I could go on and on about things I am thankful for. My heart is bursting with joy and thanksgiving! I have been so blessed by writing out things that I am thankful for. It has really opened my eyes as I reflect on them each night. This was fun and I will continue to do this on my own each day. Thanksgiving isn't over! The day might be but give thanks everyday and you too will be blessed!

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!
