Date night

Chris won tickets from our local jazz station a couple weeks ago to the Dave Koz and Friends Cozy Christmas concert at the Nokia Live theatre. We were stoked because A.) We are geeks awesome and love jazz music B.) We love Christmas music. It's been playing in our house since July and C.) We won free tickets! Woo!

I had never been to staples center or the Nokia theatre so I was excited to play around downtown. I usually try to avoid LA unless it's for a TV show, farmers market or the Grove...I always forget how close we are to the big city, 45 minutes.
It was so beautiful there last night. Decked out for Christmas with an ice skating rink to boot. How fun!

I totally embarrassed my husband by playing the role of a tourist last night.
I told him I was taking pictures for all my Midwest friends!

See! Aren't you glad I embarrassed him for those 5 seconds? So pretty!

So, our date went like this:
Got to dinner at the Yard House and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. We talked about Christmas and I almost spilled the beans like 5 times sitting there because I can hardly contain myself!! We talked about Kate and how hilarious she is. We chatted some more about business and other things. We talked about how freakin gooshie Kate is....yadda yadda.
We leave for one on one time and all we do is talk about the babe!
After dinner we walked all of 30 feet to the theatre and got checked in. Put our wristbands on (we had passes to the VIP lounge backstage)...mingled for a bit, got snacks, talked about Kate and then the show started...
It was AMAZING! I didn't really know what to expect but we were blown away! Our seats were in the Orchestra section, fabulous! Some of the songs brought me to tears. Remember I told you I have a very soft heart. It was the perfect date night and came at such a perfect time.






















I am officially in the Christmas spirit and ready for the day to arrive!!!

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…

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!
