happy birthday, dad!

This was a totally different birthday for my dad but we celebrated the fact that he is alive and well and on the mend! He celebrated by having chicken broth while the rest of the family enjoyed delicious food that dear friends have been bringing over. Dad is feeling better and getting stronger each day. All of his girls have been waiting on him and taking care of his every need. Yesterday he asked if he could have a bell to ring for service. I think he's feeling better! :)

Dad was tired, can you tell? :)



















I want to thank each and every one of you who have been praying for him and for us. You are such a blessing to us. There is no better feeling that knowing you are being prayed for and being taken care of by the greatest Physician. Thank you to the Anderson's and Fingal's for bringing dinner over on Saturday and Sunday and to the many more who are bringing meals to them this week. It was such a relief to the family knowing that we didn't have to worry about cooking.
God does have us on this journey for a reason. We are amazed by His mercy and grace. We will continue to trust in Him and see all that He has for us.
Thank you again for every word of encouragement and messages checking on us. I know that I have cherished each one and thank God for all of the selfless people who have been so gracious to us during this time.

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…
