days 5-10 of thanks

I am thankful for:

6. Memories. I am thankful that the past is preserved with sweet memories that no one can ever take away. I have memories that will last a lifetime. They are precious and I'm so thankful to have them.

7. Provisions. I am thankful that I have never had to worry about where my next meal will come from or if I would have a roof over my head when I lay down at night or had to worry how I would stay warm in the winter. Many people don't have this simple blessing which breaks my heart.

8. The Internet. I am thankful for this little tool that the majority of us in the United States get to log onto each day. I am able to stay in contact with friends and able to reach the world with the help of my Toshiba laptop and Internet explorer. It's a beautiful thing.

9. Selfless People. I am thankful for those who put others before themselves. They are hard to find in today's world and are an absolute treasure when you find them. I am blessed to have several of them in my life. I strive to be more selfless each day. It's tough.

10. Prayer. I am so thankful that I have direct access to the King of Kings. The Maker of Heaven and Earth. I am thankful that the Lord hears me when I cry out to Him. I might not see every prayer answered but they are. Sometimes I might not like the answer but I know it will all make sense one day and I'm thankful for that.

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!
