The greatest gift

What is the greatest gift you have ever received?
 Material wise I have two; my car from my parents and my engagement ring and wedding band. I adore them. But, I adore the man who gave it to me even more, My husband and my baby girl are the greatest personal gifts I have received. I love that God handpicked Chris for me. He has knit our hearts together so tight and has blessed us with a love that can only be from Him. I continue to be amazed by our Kate daily. I love that she does things like her mama and looks like her daddy. I'm still in awe that the Lord knit her together in my womb for 39 weeks. Those are my greatest gifts that I've been given here on earth (so far)....
The greatest gift that I have ever received will be celebrated in 9 short days. He was born in a stable in Bethlehem and was sent to save us all. Jesus Christ is the greatest gift I have ever received. I can still remember the day I asked Him into my heart when I was a youngin at Bible School. I re-dedicated my life to Him in high school and that is when my life changed. The gift that He has given me is absolutely priceless. His love, His mercy, His grace, His peace, His blessings....I could go on and on about my Jesus. As His day is approaching quickly I have been thinking about Christmas and the real meaning of that day. It's focused on gifts, food and love...all our favorite things. I can't even tell you how excited I am for Christmas day to arrive. I'm not sure that I can make it 9 more days without spilling the beans. I can hardly wait to give my loved ones their gifts. Things that were hand picked just for them. With my excitement and joy overflowing and about to explode I can't help but think about Jesus and how He feels when a child of His accepts His love and asks them into their life. The joy that must fill His heart! Jesus is the greatest gift anyone could ever receive and it's free! You don't have to work for it, or stand in long lines, or pay it off. Our debt has been PAID. How is that for the greatest gift of all? I love it and I am so excited to celebrate Him in 9 days! A new house, new car, a new pair of boots and Louis Vuitton purses are great and I love them but nothing will ever take the place of my Jesus.
After all, you can't spell Christmas without Christ...

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…

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…

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.
