Our adventure begins

I am feeling like a bad mom but then again who really follows their child's every footstep? Obviously not me!
Let me take you to my heart attack that happened today..

I was sitting on the couch sending an invoice for orders that I received. Kate had just been sitting next to me .2323 seconds before I heard her yell for me and banging on the door. I ran down the hall in panic wondering what room she let herself into when all of a sudden I look in her room and see her hands and face pressed against her closet door. She was stuck. Her closet door is frosted glass and inside her closet are lots of awesome drawers (which I envy!) My darling daughter had closed her closet door and then decided to open the bottom drawer which has her stuffed animals in it.
 I pushed as hard as I could and nothing would budge. The only thought that ran through my mind was breaking the glass. I freaked out for a couple reasons. 1. Kate was stuck inside her closet and starting to panic 2. I love that door and it was really freakin expensive, I didn't want to break the glass! 3. If I broke the glass we would both get hurt.
 At this point I am starting to sweat and my thoughts aren't making sense so I call my parents. They got in the car and headed up here. I called Chris to ask him what tools I should use. He very calmly gave me directions and was laughing inside at which point I got mad and told him this was serious!
As soon as I started to use the tools that Chris had me pull out he said this. "tell Kate to close the door." What? It is closed! "tell Kate to close the door". So I did..."precious, please close the door". Just as I was about to break down and cry wondering if I would ever see Kate again (ok maybe that's a little dramatic) the door opens. Thank you God for a smart child who listens to directions!!!!!! She totally closed the drawer as I had asked and we were reunited again. She was totally freaked out and didn't leave my side until we laid her in bed tonight.

 Thank God we didn't have to break the door! Oh, I can only imagine the adventures this girl is going to take us on. We are in for one wild ride. Guess we should put our seatbelts on now...

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…
