one of Kate's firsts...

Our precious little girl got her first bee sting tonight. I know what you're thinking. She got stung by a bee at night?? Yes! A bee flew in through our chimney and Kate's little foot happened to step on it. I was in the office and I heard Chris yelling for me along with Kate screaming her head off. I flew out of the chair and Kate was laying in her daddy's arms with a long stinger sticking out of her little foot.
Y'all will be proud of me, I stayed calm. I tried to flash back to my bee stings as a kid and what to do for them. Chris pulled the stinger out (which was not an easy task) and I put her in a warm bath. I knew I was missing something so I called the mama up and she reminded me to mix baking soda and water together and rub it on the sting. The poor girl screamed and screamed and screamed. I put her in a diaper and wrapped her up in a cozy blanket and snuggled on the couch for a bit with her. She realized her daddy was there and then all she wanted was him. They snuggled for 30 minutes, just long enough to watch an episode of 'Olivia". She is totally fine. We watched her like a hawk and gave her Benadryl just in case she had an allergic reaction to it. Oh and we also started the fire to kill any other bees that might have been flying around up there!


her wound

























Good grief this child! She is breaking us in really quick!

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.
